Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

The alarm on our air conditioner has been on and it doesn't want to start

\015 Is there any troubleshooting sequnce i can go through to fix this? I have washed the filter. We have the Air Conditioner since 2002 and never had any problems. Work on west coast, weahter is not humid. Problem might be that we have not been cleaning the filter more often.\015

Answers :

I know this may seem basic, but after changing the filters have you unpluged the ac. This sometimes will do a hard reset on the system. Also, make sure there are not secondary filters that may been cleaned.

I have a Comfort-Aire Model RAH-123A Room Air Conditioner and Heat Pump. When depressing the low or high heat control button, the unit hums like it wants to start but shuts off in about 3-5 seconds. My suspicion is that the compressor is trying to start but a thermal cutout shuts it down when it does not start. The unit was installed as part of a sun room addition and the remodeler is no longer in business. If I cannot solve this problem through the internet, I need a local contact fro servic

We have a Goodman Furnace and Air Conditioner approx 7 years old. When I put the Cool on thermostat and lowered the temperature for the air conditioner to come on the furnace fan started but the outside air conditioner only made a humminging sound. How long does it take for the air conditioner to start? I thought in previous years it came on quickly. I changed batteries in thermostat and reset the brakers on the main electrical panel. Could you please give me some advice. Thank you.


Hi, You are right. The outside unit starts quickly. The humming will either be the evaporator fan or the AC compressor itself. If you can reach into the evaporater fan with something narrow and stiff you may be able to see if the fan turns. Sor ... Air Conditioners

We purchased a Whirlpool portable air conditioner in 2005 from Best Buy. Near the end of last summer the air conditioner started leaking water. We started using it again this season and it is still leaking. When my husband drained the water out of it, the water came out of the upper part of the back side of the air conditioner and no water was coming out of the drain at the bottom. When it appeared to be empty, we plugged it in and used it again and it continued to leak water on our carpet.


Check to see if the drain is blocked by particles/debris of any type. Also make sure that the unit is level--as level as possible. I have my Whirlpool Portable AC in 4 inch bed risers so I can drain it really easily. I slip under a small low rise p ... Whirlpool Air Conditioners

Hi, Our Mitsubishi Air Conditioner is leaking from the bottom left hand corner. The conditioner will sometimes run for 1hr then start leaking, or a few hours then start leaking. We're aware it could be a blockage (gecko, frog or wasp nest), so we have put a cord up the water pipe from the ground. It seems to stop where the pipe would bend toward the air conditioner, at the top. Would you know if there is any other reason for the leaking. Or would you know, how do we check for a blockage in the t


Two ways to clear out the pipe. One way is to take a wet/dry shop vac and **** from the outside drain pipe. The second way is a bit messier. Take an air hose (from a compressor) and purge the air up the drain a few times. Works like a dream! ... Mitsubishi Air Conditioners
