Answers :

Hi,\015\012 Sounds like the lightning got your unit too. You could run an extension cord from another plug temporarily just to make sure the plug isn't the problem but I think its time for another unit. Good luck. May want to contact you home owners ins company if there are more appliances blown.\015\012kstfas

Have a coleman mach unit that never cools correctly. If you run on low with thermostat halfway down it will keep running. If you run it on high, it acts like the coil is freezing up and barely blows air. I assume it is low on charge. Is there no way to add a charge? We have had our rv only 2 years and they replaced the unit once already.


It may also be an obstruction in the ducting. When the forced air is restricted somewhere, it will freeze the coils, and compressor shuts down, until frost is gone, then starts back up and will repeat that all day. I'm thinking that the restriction d ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

Air Conditioning I have a ruud system with the air conditioner outside and the air handler upstairs in the attic. My systems appears to be running, and I can feel cold air at the vents, but I can barely feel it. Like there is no flow. The fan outside is running and the unit in the attic is running. I have no clue what the problem is. The large coil coming from the heat pump outside is cold and has condensation on it. It also seems to have a little ice. It has been extremely hot here in Ge


Open the access panel on the air handler in the attic and take a look at the evaporator coil. If you have no airflow, and you just changed the air filter, then you probably have a buildup of airborne crud on the coil that's blocking airflow. \015\01 ... Ruud UAKA030 Air Conditioner

I too have a Duo Therm p/n 59516.331 that quit cooling. The compressor seems to be running but the high pressure line is barely warm. Checked the 6 pin output connector on the conrol box using a load test lamp. Don't have a way to check the capacitors short of replacing them. Likewise, can't check the freon without installing valves. I don't see any appearent oil that might indicate a leak. what is the most common failure on these units?


If the compressor is running and you're are getting a little bit of cooling out of it, sounds like you are (1) low on refrigerant or (2) the valves are not pumping in the compressor. Hopefully it will be just refrigerant. Also make sure the condense ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

The other day. my American standard air conditioning unit (Allegiance 10 model 7A0030A100A0) would not stop running. The furnace was not running, yet the air conditioning unit was on. I could see condensation on the line running to the furnace. The next day the unit would not even start running. I shut it down, tried it the next morning and the unit ran for about 30 sec and stopped. Could the capacitor need replacing?


Yes, that might be the problem but in this case you need a qualified technician to test system and find real cause of problem. ... Air Conditioners

Which is cheaper to run. the AC or the dehumidifier on the mitsubishi electric split-type air conditioner MSZ-A24Na unit? I live in Florida and need to keep the humidity very low. I do not want mold to grow. It's also very hot. If I run the dehumidifier (dry) setting, the room is VERY cold but no temperature settings are not available. it's just cold. My question is....since the unit is always running, Is it cheaper to run the AC or the dehumidifier on this unit?

The refrigerant line in the wall of my guest bathroom running from the Lennox A/c condensor outside makes a loud buzzing noise when it is running. The supervisor of installation of the original installation company examined the unit thoroughly outside and up in the crawl space where the line runs and says the loud, irritating noise is normal. He claims that his unit makes the same noise in his house and that I am hearing the normal noise of the outside unit running inside the house. He explained


It may just be a loud condensor, otherwise, it could be a vibration from the unit housing and the noise carries. You could always replace the relay and see if it helps any. Also check unit pressure with pressure guage to make sure it is not over pump ... Air Conditioners

1996 Coleman Model 7333C8876. Have 2 units on our Motor Home one day it was hot so I had both units running controlled by a Electronic Climate Control system. It got cool in the evening so I turned them off. The next day when i fired them both up on high the rear was fine. But the front will only cool on Low. The fan will not run on high and you can hear a slight noise coming from the unit. But the fan will not run on high.

The compressor on my goodman unit runs a few hours and shuts off. The condensing fan continues to run and once in a while you will hear a buzz but compressor won't start. If you then turn up stat and wait, unit may start or sometimes you have to wait longer for compressor to run. Readings are fine and unit is clean.

Good day! I am running my Carrier A/C Model 38EYG and it is running fine...the outside unit is running fine and the air coming out of the ceiling vents is cool. However, the inside unit (the one in the closet) is very hot. When I walked by the closet it felt like I was walking by an oven. I checked the temperature with my handy temp gauge and it was reading 120 degrees near the top of the unit...is this normal??


No its not normal. Check and make sure there is no flame inside the furnace. If not , turn the pilot light off it is a gas furnace and see if this makes a difference. good day to you too. ... Air Conditioners
