Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Just bought it and put it on its side

\015 I just purchased a frigidaire portable air conditioner model # fap094p1z and I had to put the unit on its side for about half an hour to be able to transport it to the house. I was told I would have to wait some time if i did this because of the freon in it. How long do I have to wait to be able to plug it in?\015

Answers :

I have water leaking out the bottom left side in the back of the unit. It is a new unit and was transported fron NY to Southern NJ. It is vented outside and also the pump hose is on the outside as well. We have run it for 3 days and it continues to leak.

1994 corolla-I charged the air cond., and it was cooling fine. After about a mo., it was not cooling very good. I assumed it had a small leak. I put my guages on it and the low pressure was running 15 to 20. The high side was reading about 150.I put a can of stopleak and detector in it. Then I put a can of freon in it. While I was putting the freon in it the pressure started to drop on both the low side and high side. Now the low side pressure is running about 15 and the high side is running 0.W


Hi\015\012\015\012\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. This has happened because of the low side pressure on your AC pump isn't kicking on, because when the pump is off, the pressures equal out and the low side shows a high ... Air Conditioners

I had bought a new orfus tube to be put in my car, with a used compresser. I was told that the compresser was a bad one. So I bought a new one, with orfus tube and accumalator. So that my warenty would not be void. The Garage that put it on for me said it was fixed. It didn't get cool at all, THEN IT STARTED MAKING SOUNDS AND SMOKING OUT FROM UNDER THE HOOD. I had it checked and the guy that had put it in said that I had gotten a hold of a faulty compresser.So the auto shop replaced all of the


Hi!!\015\012\015\012Yes, a plugged up/dirty orifice tube can make the compressor build so much pressure that can do the damage you mentioned, the orifice tube is a $2-$5 part at most AutoParts, the thing is that you need to open the syste ... Air Conditioners

I bought a Honeywell air purifier HPA-051. Pre-filter was in a plastic bag at the bottom of the box. The instruction manual is not very clear about the installation of it. I don't know where it should go. Should I install it inside the rear grille? The pre-filter has a black side and kind of a grey side. Which side should be facing the true HEPA filter? Thanks a lot for your help! Andrea

My recently May 3rd, 2010 purchased LG LWHD1009R Air Conditioner runs very well and cools great. Noise is not bad at lowest fan setting which is all I need really. My only complaint is the rattle buzzing type noise coming from the Air Intake or the Inlet Grille in the front of the AC. When you lower it the noise and rattle stop and the AC keeps running great. When I put it back up and connect both sides the rattle returns. I notice that if I put it back up but only connect one of the 2 prongs

I bought an older camper with a colman roof unit ac. My question is do I need to put small filters under the intake grates inside the camper below the ac cover. There is nothing in there. (bought it this way) thanks

How much water should be put into a Dimplex Portable Air Conditioner DAC15HH? The user manual does not say how much. There is a clear strip on the side which runs the full height of the unit which allows you to see the water level but does not have a marker to show how much to put in. I added water to reach a few inches up the gauge, then the "empty the water" symbol and "dinging sound" came on. I switched off and it leaked all over the floor, even though the outlet plug and cap were still in pl

We own an air-conditioner Model # ARP-1008. We would like to know what to use when you put the pipe out of the window. How do we block the sides of the pipe so only the hose pipe is expelling the air. We have gone to hardware stores and no one has an answer. Do you see some kind of foam padding or accordion-type material to block the opening in the window on either side of the hose pipe? Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks

I bought a Hotpoint FZA51 frost free upright freezer a couple of years ago. It works ok apart from the drawers which appear to have shrunk over the period. The result is that I have great difficulty opening and shutting the drawers as they constantly fall off the drawer runners and occasionally this has resulted in the door not shutting properly. It is very difficult to put the drawers back into the freezer especially if they are quite full. Please help
