I have a 2 year old Mr slim system inside unit MSY-A24NA, outside MUY-A24NA. "2 lights mode" stays on when temp in room is actually 4 degrees LOWER than set temp. This is new, operation used to be 2 lights dropped to 1 when room temp was 2 degrees above set temp. Humidity control also seems poor. Had 2 service shops here, they both confirmed freon is OK and since unit is running were uninterested in pursing further. Any guidance you can give will be a help

We recently bought a new house (to us). It has a Goodman heat pump and Goodman Electric backup furnace(A36-15) with a Janitrol stat. I switched the stat to emrg. Heat when the temp got below Frezzing. The heat pump and the heating elements now both run at the same time. The outdoor unit will run when it is 15 degrees outside still. I check the out outside stat to see what it was set on and the outside one is set at 40 degrees. Is this normal??? thanks Jon
If you have a volt meter, check to see if you have 24 volts coming from the thermostat on the yellow wire.\015\012\015\012If you do, and it is set on emer heat, you have a bad T-stat.\015\012\015\012\015\012It looks like ... Air Conditioners
I just bought a samsung 15k BTU window a/c, I haven't seen any water dripping out of the bottom of the unit. In fact there is absolutely no moisture anywhere. Is this normal. Humidity is low, and it is around 76 degrees outside. Unit is blowing ice cold, but I do notice a smell. This is a 1 year old used unit.
If the humidity is low then the amount of water removed will be low. The AC (I assume is a window unit) May be evaporating it off as soon as its drained outside.. Yes in low temps and humidity it is normal for no moisture to be made in ab ... Kenmore 75050 Wall/Window Air Conditioner
Daewoo DOZ-1206G Brand new, just installed. This replaced an older a.c. unit in our apartment that was not blowing any cold air. The technician said that one was broken and replaced it with this one. Once it was installed, the technician turned it on and left. After 5 minutes with it set at 16 degrees celsius the cool air (which was never freezing) just became normal air. We have tried everything on the controls, we cannot get it to cool our very small studio apartment. We live in Sth Korea by t

When I cool the room it doesn't drop to the temperature I have it set to but a few degrees celcius higher. Is that normal? I honestly never checked on my old unit but this one doesn't seem to feel as cool.

My FDD50J2 is not dehumidifying. The fan runs but the unit does not remove amy moisture from the air. It has run for several days. I have adjusted the control button to the high, low, and between positions with no affect. My basement air is definitely becoming humid, the temperature approximately 70 degrees. I do not find DEHUMIDIFYER EXPERT from my choices below. Can you please assist? Thank you. Craig Muirhead [email protected]

My ac unit will not go below 77 degrees. It quit working about 1.5 weeks ago, and I had a service technican come and look at it. He replaced the capacitor and the unit started back up and would cool to 75 degrees (where I usually have it set). He checked the pressure of the unit as well and said that it was fine. However I came back from a trip and the thermostat read 77 degrees even though I have it set on 75, and the temperature will not go any lower. This is the same thing it was doing
Hi, It sounds to me like you have covered all of the basis. The evaporator coil should be clean if you keep your filter clean and the condensation is showing that it is cooling properly. Normally, when the temperature increases outside, you will loos ... Air Conditioners
Carrier furnace I just had a carrier furnace installed in October of 2008. I have 4 zones in my home. Three zones are set at 68 degrees and zone 4 (the basement) is set at 62 degrees until 4pm then it gets changed to 66 degrees. When this happens it takes forever for the basement to reach 66 and the other 3 zones will heat to around 71 on the main floor (zones 1 and 2) and 72-74 on the second story (zone 3). If I turn the setting down in zone 4 after a couple of hours then the furnace will f

Room temp 78 degrees with unit setting at 68 degrees. The unit is running (i.e. compressor) but unit not pumping out cold air. To be specific the unit is pushing out cool air just not cold with such a difference in room temp and temp setting. Any suggestions other than having an HVAC service contractor out.
Sounds like it could be low on freon I believe these units have about 1.5 pounds of freon in them and are critical in not undercharging or overcharging them if it is a freon 410 ac unit the pressures should be about 135 and both lines cold if is l ...

Our upstairs Central AC unit will not cool below 80 degrees. Everything is blowing fine. It is 89 degrees outside today. The air coming in thru the ducts is 80 degrees. The downstairs unit blows 70 degrees even if thermostat is set for 78. The unit is 6 years old. We cleaned the coils. No change. What should we check next? Thank you!

The air conditioner is emitting cool air instead of cold air. I have the setting on cold and the temperature setting at 60 degrees. On these days that have been near and over 100 degrees, that cool air offers no relief. When we first got the unit, it emitted cold air. We've changed nothing. The unit is not installed in a window but rather in a hole made for it in the wall.

I have 2 heil heat punps (manufactured 1989), a 3T for the lower level and a 2.5T for the upper level. The 3T unit functions normal. The upper unit functions normal if each spring, when switching from heat to cooling, the technician adds 4 pounds of freon to cool properly. In the fall the tech must draw out 4 pounds of freon for this unit to heat properly. The outside and attic units are a matched set and the expansion value in the attic unit has been replaced.

I have a 18000btu LG mini split heat pump installed about 1 year ago in vacation home. In heat mode the unit cycles on and off when room temp is within 2-3 degrees of set point. Cycle on time varies between 35 to 60 seconds (sometimes more). The off time is 2-3 minutes. During this time, I check inside temp with accurate digital themometer mounted at the air intake of the unit and the temp does not change, assume because unit does not run long enough.

It is 110 degrees out, we have set the central air for 70 but we can not seem to get the temp under 74 degrees, the unit is always running is it just too hot out for the unit to keep up, or is something wrong with the unit
You probably hit the nail on the head. You are currently getting 36 degrees difference in temp. That's pretty darn good. Most units would struggle with that. Running all the time is usually an indication that the unit could be somewhat undersized ... Whirlwind FH-778 Air Conditioner
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?

Carrier thermostat Hello, My Carrier electronic thermostat is connected to a heat pump. It was set to the COOL position during a summer thunderstorm when the AC suddenly began running no matter what the SET temperature was. It works normally when I change it to the AUTO position. The HEAT and EHEAT positions work normally. I tried cutting power to the unit for 2 days, after which it worked normally even on COOL, but after a short power failure it resumed the problem of running the AC continuo
I hate to say it but Ive had trouble with Carrier's Tstats doing similar improper things. Unfortunatly the only repair is going to be replacement of the whole tstat. I recommend Honeywell's FocusPRO or VisionPRO tstat. Ive yet to have one fail and th ... Air Conditioners
