Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Window AC takes spells on cooling?

\015 Our 1 year old Frigidaire window ac has started taking spells of not cooling. I though it was due to our high temperatures, but I am not sure that is the case. It will cool, then by noon time it only blows out air like a fan. It will go back and fourth with fan air and then cold air. We have cleaned the filter recentally and doesn't seem to have helped. We also have a smaller room ac, which is much older, and it has been doing fine, so that is why I am confused about it just being too hot. It has the energy feature, but we keep it on constant cool. Any help would be appriciated!\015

One thing to check is to make sure the evaporator and condenser coils are clean. Any dirt here will short ccle the compressor.

Popping/clicking noise My unit is a few years old now. Maybe 5yrs old. It has been making a popping/clicking type noise at random. We take it out of the window in the fall and put it back when it starts to get warm. Last year it leaked a lot of water. But I think that was due to it slanting inwards. It was leaking water again this year (it's in a different window this year) but seems to have stopped that issue. Now it's just this clicking/popping sounds. I want to say it does it in both cool & f

We purchases a Haier portable air conditioner CPN11XCJ last year via QVC. By the time we purchased it, we really didn't need so stored it unopened. Opened it up last week due to extreme heat for this time of year. I just plugged it up near an open window and it the cool air was wonderful. However, when my husband installed the hoses and window screen, the thing rattled awfully. I mean a very loud rattling noise like the compressor was having problems. If we take the hose off, it doesn't rattle b


There are only a couple of things that could make it rattle with hose installed. One, if the hose cuff is somehow extending through the grate on the unit and making contact with the fan or there is probably some sort of a fitting, like a dryer vent, ... Air Conditioners

I have a thru-wall unit that is draining out of the back and cooling just fine. My problem is the hole in which the ac goes thru. There seems to be some condensation on the bottom of the unit that drips down onto the board below(would be the window sill if I had taken it thru the window). I have thought about taking the unit out and placing a piece of insulating foam in the bottom of the unit or closing the 1/2 inch gap between the bottom of the unit and the board with insulation or expand-a-


You are correct the gap needs to be closed, i would suggest the double taped insulation they use on pick up truck when you put a topper on, as if you ever need to remove unit it would be easier then the expansion foam. Hope this helps Tim ... LG Electronic Window Air Conditioner

We have an older swamp cooler and need to have some windows in our home open to get best cooling. Does a mastercool need to have some windows open in our home to give max cooling?

My Maytag M6Q08F2A window AC started to make a loud noise when the cooling kicked in after starting it. I tried it several times, even left it running a while to see if it went away. It also stopped cooling properly - I couldn't tell if it was cooling a little or not at all. Please help! I don't know if the problem is refrigerant needed, condenser, or if it's just dirty inside. I don't have a manual. Thank you
