Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

When turned on, lights come on, but will not blow...

\015 I just installed a used Whirlpool ACQ122XK airconditioner, that has been stored for about a year. Anyways, I turned the unit on before I inserted it into its housing unit and it worked just fine. Then I inserted it into the housing unit and ran it for about 10 minutes and it ran fine, but the front radiator looking piece was sort of grimy, so I turned it off and vacuumed it, even though the bottom of it was sort of wet. I did not bend any of the aluminum pieces or anything, but now it won't turn on. When I turn the unit on, the lights come on and it sounds like it is going to start blowing, but then it clicks, behind the "power square" with the on/off switch and the cool/fan speeds, and the blower turns back off. Then about 30 seconds-1 minute, it clicks again, like if the blower is going to come back on, but then it clicks again and turns off. I have tried to unplug it and let it set for 3-5 minutes and try it again, but it does the same thing over. Do I need a new unit or is this a minor problem that can be fixed? Or even a solution, that I can possibly try, that might make it work? Thank you for any help that I can get!!!\015

Answers :

First off, I dont think you caused this problem by vacuuming the unit. It is possible that you did not leave much time before restarts but you then said you tried leaving it off for 5 minutes which should be adequate enough. f you let the unit set for a couple of hours before a restart that should be enough time for the compressor to cool down to ambient temp. I would then try restarting the unit, if it works leave it on for a while and make sure it is producing enough cooling. If there is no change in the situation I would suggest that it would need to come back out of the housing and check that the compressor is receiving voltage to it. It is possible a start capacitor or relay is the cause of the problem. If it started first time I would suggest it is worth having it checked by a professional as it could be the charge or the starting devices. First off though let it completely cool down and try again. Hope this is of some help.

E6 error I have a new Friedrich split A/C unit (ten days old). Just ran it for the first time and after a couple of minutes, E6 shows up on the display panel on the wall mounted unit. After some detecting, I discovered that the unit outside never comes on. The wall unit does blow but it seems to just be blowing air (yes, I have the remote set to "snowflake"...but the "snowflake" light on the display panel also turns off after the initial couple of minutes.

Every time my heat pump turns on, the blue auxilliary light comes on, and it only blows icy air. I do not want to use that much power, so I turn it back down a few degrees. Now, it is 50 degrees in the house. Tonight it will be around 16 degrees outside. How can I get my heat pump to produce warm air?

I have an older Carrier Gas Furnace. I can't read the complete Model number. But since Thursday morning, the blower just keeps blowing cold air, the spark igniter won't spark and the air damper will not open. I replaced the spark igniter and the pilot assembly for $215 and the thing still just won't light. As soon as you turn on the power the blower comes on and just runs. I check my 24v supplies from the transformer, and I am getting voltage. What else could it be. There are no LED's on the PCB

Everstar MPA-08CR. The unit is blowing air, but the cool and dry functions are not working. The green light that indicates that the compressor is on (which normally comes on and stays on in the cool and dry function) blinks and then turns off. I can?t find my manual and do not know who to call for help. I understand that this is a generic model sold under different names. I bought mine at Home Depot. What should I do? How do I fix it? Who do I call?


Hi,from your problem it can be deduced that the problem is from the starter relay attached to the compressor which supplies power to the compressor.it's probably weak or bad hence the light that stays on in the cool and dry function blinks as a resul ... Air Conditioners
