Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Unit will not blow cold air after starting up for first time this season

\015 Unit will not blow cold air....constant 72 degrees air whether set on "Fresh Zone" or Cooling". I have tried resetting the red reset button on right side of front panel..not sure if the button is working because it doesn't "click" or stay in when I push it in. Should it? When the unit cycles to "Cooling" from "FreshZone" about three minutes after I switch to "Cooling", I can hear what sounds like the compressor or something else "kicking in" but the temperature of the discharging air doesn't change..always 72 degrees. This problem occurs whether or not I have the water tank in or out of the unit. Help?\015

Answers :

You may need to remove the rear cover to examine what is and is not running. once you remove the back, start up the unit on a workbench. see if the fan is running and the compressor has kicked in. look at the larger or two tubes coming out of the compressor. if it is cooling a small layer of frost or condensation will appear on this " suction" line. if this tubing and the other one are approx the same temperature, then there is a freon leak in the system. Only an EPA certified technician can fill your unit. I am not familiar with that RED button but it mat be a reset of some sort. With the back removed see how it is connected in the wiring circuit. if you have the wiring diagram, please send it to me under my regular email address and I'll walk you through the troubleshooting procedure.
That's because this unit is only designed to cool a room to approximately 75 degrees.\015\012\015\012http://www.fixya.com/support/p114531-delonghi_pinguino_pac_700t_air/manual-1811/page-2\015\012\015\012It's not supposed to make the room cold, just comfortably cool. It automatically switches off of Cooling when it achieves this.\015\012\015\012If you want it cooler, you'll have to get a traditional air conditioner unit (like a window unit).

I have two Friedrich PDE15KSB-C units. When trying to turn on the heat neither will kick into the heat mode. They both blow cold air only. When they are first turned on the air blows, and there is a click sound as though the unit is trying to start the heat pump, but then nothing really happens...just the fan continues to blow cold air. Any help would be appreciated. BTW the dip sticks are all in the positions of 1234 ON, 5678 OFF - factory setting. I did try to turn 7 on for the emergency

Keep +10 degree from your room temp and also thermostat in "heat" . And then check. But in your case, I think RV not energized. If no proper voltage in RV in heat mode, check the wiring to RV. If voltage in means RV not working properly. You have to ... Friedrich PDE15K3SB Portable Air Conditioner

I recently had a new outdoor unit installed on my central heat and air conditioning sytem. I have had the installer out 3 times and the system still does not operate correctly. Sometimes when it cycles (every other time or every third time) the unit does not blow cold air. Sometimes the unit comes on not blowing cold air and the compressor fan is running but not the compressor. Sometimes after 15 minutes of this the compressor will come on. What is the problem.

It sounds like the compressor needs starting components installed on it. All a/c units have a run capacitor for the compressor and another one for the condenser fan motor. These motors use these capacitors all the time when the motor is running. H ... Air Conditioners

When I tried to turn on my Daewoo air conditioner for the first time after the cold weather it sounds like the motor/compressor is working, but no air is blowing out/no fan activity. Is it time to get a new unit? It is about 7 years old...

I have a 2011 Wildwood travel trailer. I tried to use the air conditioner for the first time this weekend. When I turned the themostat to cool and 65 degrees the air unit "clicked" one time but the unit did not start. I tried various settings but nothing. When I turned the thermostat off the unit clicked one time again. This is a brand new trailer and the first time I tried the air. Any thoughts?

First thing to check is that the breaker for hydro to AC unit is in the on position. The clicking sounds like 12 VDC is OK but hydro may not be on to it. ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

Purchased a fedders a/c 18000 unit still under warranty. called the 800# they said company had filed bankruptcy and were not responsible for repairs. 350$ mistake. Fan runs too slow for unit to kick in. Fan will pick up speed some times when you turn it on, will start to blow cold air but only runs for a couple of minutes before fan stops turning.

Check the capacitor for the fan motor. You can do that with a multimeter with the capacitor test function or if the capacitor looks swollen then it is probably bad. Also, make sure the fan rotates freely by hand. Let me know if you need more help. ... Fedders 12,000/10,200 BTU Heat/Cool Room Air Conditioner - White

I live in Florida, my a/c system, I believe it is a Rheem, has been heating the house fine all of this winter no problem. With this last recent cold spell, I turned on the heat and all that is blowing from the vents is air that feels a few degrees warmer than the air in the house, it does very slowly start to raise the temperature in the house but is taking a very long time. I have stopped using the heat for fear of damaging the inside and outside units, need help

My A/C outside will not run, inside a fan is blowing air (a little cooler than the 82 degrees it is in here, but not cold). Unlike all the other posts I've read, my unit outside is not making any noise. I makes a click when I turn it on at the termostat 1 time and then nothing. All this started yesterday sometime, after the remains of TS Fay left us. Help. I tried the breaker thing and resetting the 240v box thing outside at the unit. Help.

I turn the thermostat down at night. When I get up in the morning I turn it back up. The heat kicks on for a minute or two then the unit starts blowing colder air. If I turn the thermostat to the OFF position, wait until I hear all blowers stop, then turn it back to the ON position, it will start blowing HOT air again. Some times I have to perform this cycle 3 times to get it to keep blowing hot air. Any ideas as to what is shutting the furnace off? Thanks, Wayne

AC unit blows cold air in the AM and hot air in the afternoon. Repairman has come out 3 times. 1st time added freon and worked for 1 month, 2nd time he said was compressor, a new compressor was ordered, came back with new compressor and said that is not the problem, added 2 lbs of freon again and it is currently working. He said to call him when it is blowing hot air again so he can see everything when it is blowing hot air.

A/C does not blow cold air. It has frosting built on the pipe that connects to the a/c unit outside. There is some water built up where the filter sits. I turnd off the a/c for a full day, the frost melted, filter is very clean, and nothing on the inside seems abnormal. I started the a/c again after 1-day but the frost started to built up again and no cold air was blowing. (it blew cold for a few minutes only). I don't know what the problem can be. Please let me know if you have any ideas to mak

My heat unit will not blow hot air unless we go outside and hit a button on the back bottom of the unit. Once we do that it will blow hot air for that cycle. when it is time for it to come on it is cold air again and the unit outside is not working.

If it does not have a furnace or heating elements for heating, then it is a heat pump, which is rare for a central AC system, but makes sense of the fact that it blows warm air when you reset the pressure switch, which may indicates freon pressure ch ... Ruud Central System Air Conditioner

I have a Coleman roof mounted AC unit on a travel trailer. The unit model is 83338715. The unit just blows cool air not cold air like it should. I was told to replace the "Hard Start Capacitor" and "PTCR Start Device" which I did. This did not remedy the problem. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Could the problem be the "Compressor Run Capacitor"? Reason being that I hear no change in the blower sound when the unit kicks on???

Blowing 'cool air' could mean - room temperature air or it could be 'cool' because the system is low on refrigerant, and just barely doing any 'cooling' at all.\012\012To determine which is which - you need to know "for sure" if the compressor ... Air Conditioners

In hottest part of day it starts blowing hot air. We turn it off for 2-3 hours and comes back on anabnd blows cold air again. Technician unable to determine problem. Says we should buy all new unit. Current unit 10 years old. Coolent level ok. Coils clean. This is a 2 ton small unit cools our master suite only. Our other unit is 4 tons and cools rest of house with no problem.

For this case, either the AC needs cleaning or the compressor may be week.  You may want to check on the thermostat, it may send signal to the unit to stop cooling.  If it is a split type AC, you may want to check for leaks in the tubes tha ... Air Conditioners
