Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

My air conditioner doesn't turn on, what do I look for?


Answers :

If your room air conditioner doesn't go on at all:\015\012\015\0121) Check the power source first: be sure it's plugged in and turned on.\015\012\015\0122) Then check the outlet by unplugging the air conditioner and plugging in a light that works (only for standard-voltage models--do not plug a light into a 220/240-volt receptacle!).\015\012\015\0123) If the light doesn't go on, the circuit has probably overloaded--check the electric panel or fuse box and reset the breaker or replace the fuse.\015\012\015\0124) If the light works, it's likely that the air conditioner's switch is faulty or the thermostat needs adjustment or repair.\015\012\015\0125) Be sure the thermostat is set to "cool" and below room temperature.\015\012\015\0126) Refer to the manufacturer's instructions for thermostat repair. If adjusting or repairing the thermostat doesn't solve the problem, unplug the unit and call an air conditioning technician.

I have a Mitsubishi split air conditioner; Model number: MSH-18NA. When I turn the air conditioner on with the remote control, sometimes it works normally, sometimes it doesn't. When it is not working properly, sometimes the fan turns continuously and sometimes it doesn't. No matter whether the fan is working or not, no cold air comes out. The green operation light is blinks and the indicator light is off. It looks like the outdoor unit is not working because the outdoor fan is not moving. Wha

Our Furnace doesnt seem to be working correct. We an: Air Pro BGM075128 and is Natural Gas. It will turn on when we turn up the thermostat.. but we never get any heat through the vents. There is a switch on the side that is "on" and one that is "fan". If we turn on the "fan" only cold air gets blown through. It looks like this is for cool air. So, if we leave the fan off and the "on" swith on, we get the furnace firing up, but no heat ever comes through the vents. I tested out the thermo


Sounds like the blower motor is not working, if the furnace is actually lighting up and the burns are ignited. You should set your thermostat to auto, as if it is on fan then the fan runs all the time until you take it off of fan. I am a little confu ... Air Conditioners

This is a weatherking central air conditioner. Had been looked at by another person before me. Wasn't cooling right is all the information I had. When I walked past it one day (this is at a golf course), I noticed the suction line going into the condenser cabinet was iced up. First thing I thought about was maybe it had to much freon in it. After looking into it further I noticed it was iced up all the way to the compressor. When I had a person turn the t-stat down to turn down, the head pressur

I have a AMANA PTh153B50AE (PTAC unit). The air conditioner works fine. It is when I turn on my heater and it does not get warm. It just blows cold air. I have looked at the board and it appears that there are no bad spots on the board from where it had burnt. It appears that it may have a manual heater reset button. I am not sure if that will work but I can;t find the reset button. I am wondering if my heat pump has gone bad. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Trying to decide if it's worth it to try to find someone to fix it (it's a casement window air conditioner, so it's not like we can replace it for $100), or whether we should just look into buying another.
