I have a Heat Controller EKTH15-150J PTAC. Of lat,e toward the end of winter here in southern Missour,i the unit while in heat mode has been randomly blowing cold air. Often you can shut off the unit and let it sit for awhile and when you turn it back on it will come up heating again. A couple of years ago I replaced the control board that had been killed by a lightning induced power surge with a RSKP006 control board kit. It has run fine since, until the last few months. Sometimes I can pu

Sharp Air Conditioner AC09RLCSYS isnt cooling properly. Very moderate to low cold air from unit. At one point small bits of ice came out of indoor unit when on auto cool. Unit was switched off immediately and then turned back on after a few minutes with no additional problems, however still is not cooling properly. Unit is only eight months old. First used for cooling with no problems and great cold air, then for heating during winter. Now back to cooling and not getting the cold air like p

I have a Coleman rooftop rv ac unit. THe air it blows is not as cold as it used to be. the compressor shuts off frequently even if the thermostat is set all the way to coldest. The compressor will start again after several minutes and runs_air is not very cold_then it shuts off again and the cycle repeats. Is there anything that can be serviced for this. Can it be recharged with freon? Could it be the thermostat? Why is the compressor shutting off?


Try to check the condenser coil fins, there should be no clogged areas on fins so that it could properly discharge hot air which is needed to complete the refrigerant cycle. If the condenser heat is not discharged properly, hi refrigerant pressure wi ... Coleman Air Conditioners

My central air conditioner is making a whistling noise in the inside unit when the compressor is running. It's not the blower because the noise stops after the outdoor unit shuts off. It's also not blowing any cold air and the piping is not getting cold. What could be the possible cause?

I have a carrier 38ckc060370 that runs but the air is not cold coming out of the vents. i checked the copper line coming out of outdoor unit and is not cold either. does this mean that i need a recharge, or could there be some other problem? recently, i've had problems getting the unit to turn off, and had to use the breaker because it would not shut down on its own, but other than that, the unit has never had a problem. the unit is about 4 years old.


Hi, since you claim that the a/c is working but the air coming out is not cool, then you have a very low freon in the compressor and you need to refill the compressor, Or look for an air restriction. Check your filter first of all..Concer ... Air Conditioners

If the unit is not shutting down, then there is a chance the contactor has gotten stuck. This is not a good thing. If the contactor were to weld itself shut and the outdoor unit were to continue to run without the indoor fan running for an extended ... Carrier 38CKC060 Air Conditioner

I have a dometic dual-therm rooftop RV air with analog thermostat. When I set the thermostat to heat, the unit will hum but the fan does not turn and no air is coming thru vents in the floor. Then unit will blow cold air (hums and fan turns) when thermostat is on cool, but it won't turn off unless I shut it off at the breaker. What could be wrong?

Our a/c-heat pump unit was replaced for our home. This unit throws hot air in the summer and cold air during the winter. We have called service techs numerous times and no one seems to find the issue. Currently we set the temp@ 76 degrees a/c and it says it's 85 degrees inside and blowing hot air. Please give me any suggestions??? Thanks


The issue is with the thermostat wiring. Depending on the heatpump, the Y1 wire is used to start the compressor, usually in the heating mode and the O wire operates the reversing valve, to bring on cooling. The crossed wire could be at the thermost ... Whirlwind FH-778 Air Conditioner

No heat I have an Amana heating and a/c unit model # pth153b50ae. It was blowing heat all winter then just stopped. It now blows cold air and is either bringing in cold air from outside or is blowing a/c. It does not change no matter where the control knobs are set. I checked the fuse and actually changed it but no difference. The only way I can turn it off is either unplug it or take the cover off and switch of the little micro switch.

I have 3 goodman system but my goodman ckl30-1g, stop blowing cold air a few days ago. the inside unit attempts to start and the outside compressor fan runs just fine but no cold air is being pushed through. I normally troubleshoot my my problems but this one has me puzzled. Does it have anything to do with the "warning" of overflow shut off device? where is this located?


The fan may be running on the condensor, but; Goodmans usually come with a dual capacitor. A lot of times these fail and the compressor cuts off on the overload. Turn off the power and check for a bulging capacitor. It can still be blown even if it i ... Goodman CKL30AR30 Air Conditioner

Brand New A/C stops blowing cold air half way through the day when I leave it on all day. Also it's like the blower shuts down as well. And when this happens if I turn the knob from low, medium or to high the units blower volume does not change. It just stays as it was when it shuts down. Hardly any air coming out of it at all. My R.V. guy tells me that all A/C's do this because the park I am in is not furnishing enough electricy, but it only happens to my A/C. Everyone else's A/C will be w

I bought a brand new LG L1210ER Window/Wall Unit air conditioner a couple days ago. After installing the unit in the wall and properly insulating the perimeter gap around the unit I turned on the equipment. Immediately the unit starts to cool, however after 10 minutes of use it turns itself off (even the electronic display goes off) for a total of 5 seconds, yes seconds. It then turns itself on again and works fine for another 10 minutes and then shuts itself off again. This goes on for ever, in

Two things are the most likely culprit. First check ytour inside coil with the unit running for 10 minutes or more and see if the coil is sweating there should be water running off of it. Also after one hour is there ice forming on it. These problems ... Air Conditioners

Hi, if the new furnace they put in did not have the right size coil to match the outdoor unit, it would run all of the time and not cycle off. Lets say if it is a 3 ton condenser, the indoor coil must be a 3 ton coil as well. If they put a 2 !/2 coil ... Air Conditioners

Hi, two days ago I bought a Danby Premiere DPAC13009 portable AC unit. It worked on the first day reducing the temperature from 32C in the room to 26C in a few hours. Although now there is no cold air coming out of the AC and only the fan is working. I verified the two hoses and the exhaust is working good, lot of air is blowing out. Although, no air seem to be sucked in from the intake hose. I checked and I don't see any obstruction. Could the compressor be dead already??? thank you


Comperssors have a thermal overload. If there is a starting problem or low on freon the conpressor will shut down until cooled off. Try restarting and listen to compressor. ... Danby Air Conditioners
