Central air conditioner doesn't cool

\015 The central air conditioner in our house doesn't cool.. any help would be appreciated.\015

Answers :

A central air conditioner that runs but doesn't cool may just need to be cleaned. Plan to do this on a relatively warm day. First look for your owner's manual and, if you can find it, follow its instructions. If you can't find it, request one from the manufacturer (see Resources).\015\012\015\012To clean the filter, remove it from the furnace or air handler (it?s usually located inside or very near the air inlet side). Replace a disposable filter or clean a reusable filter according to the manufacturer?s directions.\015\012\015\0121) Before you begin, check the thermostat to make sure it is set to "cool" rather than "heat." Then turn off the power to the unit; there is normally a shut-off or disconnect panel on the house wall next to the outdoor compressor. Otherwise, shut off the air conditioner's 240-volt circuit at the main electrical panel.\015\012\015\0122) Rake leaves and debris away from the outdoor condenser.\015\012\015\0123) Remove any protective grille or cover from the condenser's fins.\015\012\015\0124) Use a soft brush to clean dirt and debris from the fins, then vacuum them with a brush attachment (be careful not to bend or damage them). If you accidentally bend fins, you can buy a comb made for straightening them at an appliance parts store.\015\012\015\0125) Unscrew and lift the top grille off the unit, if possible. If the fan is attached to the grille, be careful not to pull any wires loose.\015\012\015\0126) From inside the unit, hose out the fins (protect the wiring and motor with plastic). If your owner's manual calls for lubricating the motor, do that now--don't over-lubricate.\015\012\015\0127) Then reassemble the unit.\015\012\015\0128) To test it, turn the power on and set the thermostat to turn the unit on. Let it run for a few minutes, then feel the two pipes that connect to the condenser unit (slide any insulation back). One should feel warm, the other cool. Otherwise, call an air conditioning technician--the refrigerant may need to be recharged.\015\012\015\012NOTE: Avoid straining an air conditioner's compressor by waiting at least five minutes between turning it off at the thermostat and turning it back on.\015\012\015\012Air conditioner or heat pump still giving you trouble?\015\012\015\012To Home Problem Solver Main Page\015\012\015\012Copyright.

Usually when a unit isn't cooling it is because one there isn't enough freon in the unit. Second there could be a compressor gone bad. Third there could be a circuit short out. It can be very simple and it can be costly. It just needs to be checked out by someone who has understanding in this area.Look for an affordable service man or company in your area whom most people may be using to come out and check it out for you. They would be glad to. They can let you know about what it might cost also. If you have understanding in this area you might do it yourself. I do most everything myself and it keeps alot of money in my wallet.\015\012But I have to take the time to do it.

We just turned on our central air conditioner last night. today the temp of the house was 80 degrees. someone in the household placed the tempature on 70 degrees cool on auto. we have not felt any air coming out of the vents. the central air unit is running. any idea why this happened. our thermstat is not programmable.


Did you hear the indoor unit running (the fan blowing)? If so, there's a good chance that either the filter is plugged or more likely, the evaporator coil is iced up and preventing any air from flowing into the dwelling.\015\012\015\012T ... Air Conditioners

I have a Coleman Central Air/Heat System. This year, the outside compressor (or whatever it is called) is shutting off within minutes of the air conditioner coming on.
