Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?
Condensor? No cold air and it looks like an oil leak around the condensor.
Hi,\015\012 Sounds like the freon has leaked out of the unit and its time to call a repair company. The leak is probably the source of the oil. A service tech will find the leak, repair it if possible, recharge the unit and you will be cool again. Sounds like there is a lot of oil so the leak may be very obvious. Good luck. There is an ad on this site to find a local repair service company or you may want to ask a neighbor for a reputable company.\015\012kstfas

Own Heir Outdoor unit (HC60A1VAR) condensing unit (central Air Conditioning Unit).ESTIMATED AGE IS 3+ YEARS. Local repair service says the condensor is cracked and leaking and non repairable.

My RUUD UBHA 21J8SFGAI is not cooling my house like before. It runs almost all day and the house feels a little warm. I called an air conditioner repairman who told me that the compressor is leaking freon and oil from the bottom because the bottom 2 inches are wet. He said I needed to replace the compressor. He added freon the the unit and said it would cost around $700 to $2,500 depending on what needed to be replaced Can a compressor be fixed or do I have to replace it? The house is a lit

It is a 12000 btu unit, but I have a window mounted 6000btu unit that will run cooling circles around teh PE121A.

220 was hooked up to this 5th wheel when 110 was needed. The ac comes on but no cold air. I can hear something like a draw (electrical) like the commpressor wants to start then goes off. What could it be burnt up and not giving me cold air? There is a capacitor, start motor that is on the hot side of the capacitor, and also something that looks like a soleniod.
Check the voltage rating of the capacitor. If the cap was only rated and 110 and 220 was supplied, it could have blown the cap.Depending on how long 220 was supplied to the compressor and if the compressor was running, you may have damag ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

We have a fedders AED24E7CG window air/heat unit. The left side is blowing cold air--when on heat setting. It looks like there is a coil in it cuz the right side is glowing orange & pushing heat but the left side isn't glowing & is pushing cold air. Unit was here when we bought the house so I don't have a book & am having trouble finding any info. online.

Freezing up The exchanger that provides the inside cool air is freezing up. It looks like the thermo couple came loose - it looks like it simply pushes between the vanes of the exchanger to detect how cold it is and allows the unit to cycle - before I put it there, I wanted to be sure that it doesn't mount somewhere else that I can see.
Hi,\012That would be the bulb for the exspansion valve and should be strapped to the copper where it exists the coil...\012But that is probably not why it is freezing up....\012That is more likely caused by a slow leak that has the ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner
My nordyne AC unit thats 2 years old suddenly froze up and after thawing, the compresor runns but the thing only blows warm air. COndensor fan is spinning but the air is cool, not hot like it used to be. Filters are clean and are ALWAYS changed. The inside of the unit is spotless, it looks like its never been used. Its always cooled my home down in 3 minutes as its a 55500 BTU unit.

I have a Bryant Heating/Cooling unit. Serial # 4698E18469, Model # 597CN042-D. The water pump that pumps condensate out was replaced last weekend. A couple days ago, we stopped getting air flow. I replaced the filter, but the house still isn't cooling. I think there is more air flow, but it's not cold air. I'm not certain how to check the condensor or even if this is the first place I should look. Any advice? Thank you for your help! Rena

I have a Mitsubishi split air conditioner; Model number: MSH-18NA. When I turn the air conditioner on with the remote control, sometimes it works normally, sometimes it doesn't. When it is not working properly, sometimes the fan turns continuously and sometimes it doesn't. No matter whether the fan is working or not, no cold air comes out. The green operation light is blinks and the indicator light is off. It looks like the outdoor unit is not working because the outdoor fan is not moving. Wha

Our Furnace doesnt seem to be working correct. We an: Air Pro BGM075128 and is Natural Gas. It will turn on when we turn up the thermostat.. but we never get any heat through the vents. There is a switch on the side that is "on" and one that is "fan". If we turn on the "fan" only cold air gets blown through. It looks like this is for cool air. So, if we leave the fan off and the "on" swith on, we get the furnace firing up, but no heat ever comes through the vents. I tested out the thermo

Coleman RV Rooftop Air Conditioner - cage fan making a noise like it is hitting on something as it goes around. The motor works as it should, low and high fan and cool, the air is cold. The only thing that is a problem is the sound. We have already removed the top from the roof and the bottom cover from inside so we can see the cage fan, but cannot see what it could be hitting. Any ideas?

How do you tell if a goodman ck36-1b has proper level of freon.Lets say it is 75 degrees outside and I added to where the low side reads around 30 and the high side is around 120-130.(orignal problem was inside freezing up.)The air is now ok (cold) but would like to be sure it is not over/under charged. thanks mike
The correct way is to evacuate the system,pull a vacuum then charge with a refrigerant scale.In lieu of that you can charge by pressure and get close.Normal operating pressure would be 68 psi on the suction side and about 225/275 on the h ... Air Conditioners

Because today is Saturday he is unable to purchase until Monday. How much is that part?

The noise is a little concerning but the behavior is normal. There are switches on the r/d and the h/p that tell when it is low on refrigerant or has an over pressure. IF either one of those issues is present, it shuts off the compressor. Best to hoo ... Air Conditioners

I have a 2001 Lincoln Navigator, There is a leak somewhere in the AC, so I understand that's why it no longer blows cold air. What I can't figure out it this. The AC/heater will rarely blow through the vents. I have to be stopped, turn the system off, then press the vent button. As soon as I step on the gas pedal it blows through the defrost again. Also I often get a noise that sounds like a faint horn until I step on the gas. There is a plug I can unplug under the hood to get the noise to
