Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

1st Problem: Doesn't evaporate the water. 2nd: Power will not stay on.

\015 I used to use it all the time. First problem I had that it started leaking water (big puddles). I checked the manuel to see if I was supposed to be draining it regularly and it said there was no need. After I got tired of it leaving puddles I hooked up a hose to the drain plug. That worked, just had to dump the five gallon bucket every coule days. Now the new problem it wont stay on. After running for about 10 mins it just shuts off. And you have to push the reset button on the plug. And the same thing happends. I called Soleair customer service. And they me a number to somebody's who works there's voicemail. And they wont call back.\015

First thing to know is that most window or portable A/C units use\015\012the water from the evaporator to cool the condenser. If the \015\012condensor is not cooled down it will cause high head pressure\015\012on the Compressor causing it to overheat and shutdown. First thing\015\012is to make sure nothing is plugged which will keep the water from\015\012reaching the condensing fan, which slangs water on the condenser.\015\012If this is a portable unit it may only have a condenser and uses \015\012the water to cool it.
Do it the way he told you to!!!!!!

Amana AC model MBR2000, installed mid May 2009. When outside temp gets above a certain level the AC does not cool. fan keeps running and it keeps trying but not work. When outside air gets cooler then starts to work again.

We recently bought a MasterCool P700 evaporative cooler. We discovered that we could turn off the display light (makes sense with the large blue light lighting up the entire room at night) by hitting the power button a 2nd time after choosing selections (cool, sweep, etc.) However, it works only on an intermitent basis. sometimes, hitting the power button the 2nd time simply turns the cooler off. This feature is not covered in the manual. Please advise.

We are type testing a 4 Tons water coled Air Conditioner with water cooled Brazed Plate condenser which has water inlet froma 1 HP Pump form the water tank. The AC uses Copeland Scroll Compressor, TEV/Filter dryer & a sight glass. The problem is - the discharge pressure varies between 250-300 PSI & doesnt settle down.


Check that the brazed plate condenser is verical and plumb. Variance can occur when the condenser is moved out of a plumb position to a horizontal position as it affects the free condensation area when the freon gas first enters the chamber. Some dis ... Air Conditioners

My base-board hot water heat system has 3 Taco zone valves in it. One of the valves seems to be not shutting off completly when the thermostat shuts it off, and allows the zone to heat when the furnace is calling for it to heat the hot water tank (for house hot water) My question is the problem most likely in the power head of the zone valve or will I need to change the whole valve?----Thanke you--------------- Lacy Smith


No you can replace just the head no need to drain the system. Push the head in with a slight twist and it will pop off. At this point check to see if the problem has gone away. If it has replace the head, if you still have the same problem drain the ... Air Conditioners

My air conditioner evaporator housing appears to be clogged. The normal drain line goes to the sewer. When it is not draining properly, a back-up drain line coming from the same evaporator housing, drains to the pan (below the unit). Then the pan drains to a visible outlet on the roof (which signals the home owner that there is a problem). We noticed the roof drain line was draining last weekend, so we checked the pan under the evaporator unit, and it had water in it (which is not normal


If you are sure that it's not the line, you are going to need to get to the drain pan to clean it. Take the cover off (with power off) to access it. It's not that muchto get to it. Use a drill and a socket. Once you get in there you will ... Air Conditioners

Hi, I have Lennox gas furnace Model G12Q3E-82 (about 30 yrs. old). When running the A/C, I noticed there was water leaking or dampness around the bottom of the furnace. I removed the hose from the drain spout on the evaporator and noticed it was plugged and unplugged it to drain some water out of it. I also removed some water that accumulated in the bottom of the frame that wraps around the blower motor and fan wheel. I have a problem where now the blower motor runs for about 1 to 2 minutes then

I have a 2000 Coachman Class C mini motorhome. My problem is with the water heater which is a a Atwood model G6A-8E. The electronic ignitor is a Atwood p/n # MPD93257. The water heater will ignite and then go off after just a few seconds. As designed I assume after three attempts the control lock out on safety. If I keep trying for sometime the burner will finally stay on line and heat the water until it is at temperature. What should I be looking for and what repair can be made?

My bonaire evaporative cooler cycles from high to low fan speeds when set in the cool mode. It works fine at the required speed setting when just the fan (no water) is selected. It also dumps water immediatly the cooling cycle is turned off rather than holding it for about 40Min as it should. Sounds like a controller problem, but I'm not sure if it would be the touch pad or the board up on the roof mounted unit.

Afternoon, I have a major problem with my Dimplex DAC15HC portable air-conditioner. It either requires constant top-ups to its external water tank, or the main evaporative water tank leaks constantly, irrespective of both tanks being emptied on a daily basis. At this rate, I'll be re-carpeting the room the unit is in!! Any help would be gratefully received. Cheers, Simon

Hello, I have a Multizone Air Conditioner that after a few minutes of being turned on, shuts down automatically. When he powers on, the unit seems to run a diagnostic that begins from 10 down to 8. Where it hits 8, it stays there, shuts down and then appears an ''E4'' error. Would like to know what seems to be the problem / what part needs to be fixed. Couldn't find anything on the internet about these error codes. Thank you.
