Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Unit keeps stopping when hot weather

\015 I have a Mr.Slim in my shop in Hong Kong and whenever the outside temperature exceeds 30Deg C the unit keeps stopping and turning off automatically. I cannot restart the unit until it cools dowm later in the afternoon. I have had the unit cleaned and serviced but it continuously keeps stopping. The servicemen have no idea to why this is happening. Hope you can help so that we can pass on the fix to the next serviceman we get in.\015\012\015\012Thank you\015\012Kind Regards\015\012Dean\015

Hi, it's summer again and hot. Finally got someone with some brains to come and look at the airconditioner. I showed them your reply to what the problem may be and like magic, they re-gased the aircon and now it works perfectly.\015\012\015\012Thanks again\015\012Kind Regards\015\012Dean
Hi, I am not familiar with your particular unit but it sounds like the compressor is getting too hot which could be caused by being low on freon. The large refrigerant line should be cold and sweat all the way up to the compressor after it has been running for a while. If it does, the freon is ok. It could also be a dirty condenser coil, bad bearings in outside fan motor or bad capacitor on fan motor or compressor. Check for wires that are burned or have been getting too hot. There are other things with heat pumps that could cause it but they are unlikely to happen. You might also want to make sure the voltage and hz is right. The only thing I could find information on was the 110/220 60hz (60C) You may only have 50hz power there. Good Luck. Let me know if I have helped.\015\012kstfas

I have 2 kickboard heaters in the baseboards under the cupboards in the kitchen (Smith SS7's). They are run off the hot water central heating circuit. The fan in each unit is supposed to click on to blow hot air from the heat exchanger when the temperature falls. Both units have stopped working - when one stopped the other worked intermittently for a few weeks but now this does not come on either. I have bled both units and if I keep doing this then eventually hot water reaches both but the flo

I turn the thermostat down at night. When I get up in the morning I turn it back up. The heat kicks on for a minute or two then the unit starts blowing colder air. If I turn the thermostat to the OFF position, wait until I hear all blowers stop, then turn it back to the ON position, it will start blowing HOT air again. Some times I have to perform this cycle 3 times to get it to keep blowing hot air. Any ideas as to what is shutting the furnace off? Thanks, Wayne

I have a 98 Sunnybrook w/Dometic Furnace-A/C thermostat control. Just the other day, the furnace would keep running and it got very hot in the trailer until I could shut it off. The thermostat was set kind of low, but we needed to keep a little heat on in case we got a freeze. Do I need to replace the control unit which is electronic to correct the problem? I am assuming the thermostat went bad, but am also assuming it is a part of the control unit?! Thanks for your help. Dave

Goodman outdoor a/c unit top fan stopped working while the family was away from home and now the compressor will not turn on. Only thing happening when a/c turned on inside is the indoor unit kicks on and the outdoor top fan begins humming and getting very hot to touch. Unit is only 5-7 years old. It is a Goodman CKL42-1L. Please, anyone with suggestions is appreciated. Definetly do not have money to replace the entire unit at this time.

My Goodman Mfg AC unit is blowing fuses on the control board inside the blower/air handler unit. This fuse supplies 24V to the outside compressor unit. Originally, there was a 3 A fuse in it. I replaced it with a 5 A fuse that lasted for a year. Now it has blown. I suspect that the solenoid actuator coil on the outside compressor unit is becoming lossy and drawing more amperage in the hot weather and my solution is to replace that component. Does that sound right?

I have an Amana a/c unit and the compressor outside keeps stopping however the fan goes on. The a/c service guys have been to my house 3 times and the wires each time were burnt. The last time they change the capacitor and and new heavier guage wires and it lasted for about a month. When trying to turn iton now I am back to the same situation. Do you think I should I go for a compressor or change the unit ? It is a 4 ton model BBC60a2A and the outside unit model number is RCE42A2A . Thanks

It is 110 degrees out, we have set the central air for 70 but we can not seem to get the temp under 74 degrees, the unit is always running is it just too hot out for the unit to keep up, or is something wrong with the unit


You probably hit the nail on the head. You are currently getting 36 degrees difference in temp. That's pretty darn good. Most units would struggle with that. Running all the time is usually an indication that the unit could be somewhat undersized ... Whirlwind FH-778 Air Conditioner
