Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I have had a mitsubishi split system HVAC installed in my 150m apartment. It is installed inside the apartment in a small space with one window for inflow a second window for out flow. As we test the unit, 3 problems have come to our attention. (1) When it was really cold outside last Janaury the unit itself was leaking something that turned into ice.

Answers :

The problem is in your Ac's compressor .It is wasting all the cooling gases and chemicals
1)the ice you are seeing is the mixture of chemical & gases when get in contact with atmospheric air it converts into ice and pls dont touch that ice as it may harm your skin
2)you are not getting the temperature you want because of same compressor problem.
3)the noisy ness is because the ice is also getting stuck in your AC and it is creating problem.
i will recommend you to call a service personnel to get it repaired.
pls rate me
thankyou
If the unit lines were frozen, try removing all ice and leaving the unit off for few hours.

If there was a leak you need to ensure that freon is fully charged.

If the compressor has not enough gas loaded , the performance will be affected, and that can be the reason for your problem.

Drainage occurs near the front of the unit, resulting in pools of water leaking onto my window sill. Unit is installed properly, there is no drain hole to direct water away from the insides of the walls in my house. Please help with a fix for this awful awful design.


The A/C unit should be tilted slightly to the rear and this will allow the water to leak to the outside of the window, you may have to drill a small hole in the case to drain if there is no pre-existing hole. ... Frigidaire FAC126P1 wall/window Air Conditioner

I have model HQ2121MH 11,500 BTU window unit which has been working great until it recently stopped evapoarting/draining the condensation. It's now dripping inside the house. Has this been a common problem or is it something easy to repair? The unit still cools down our apartment very effectively. Thank you.


Yes, it is a common problem.\015\012\015\012It is an easy solution, but sometimes a tedious annoyance to repair.\015\012The problem is that the drain is clogged. There is a drain pan right at the bottom of the evaporator coil, and a ... Quasar Air Conditioners

My Amana Cool Zone stopped blowing cool air. I live on the 3rd floor in a small apartment and getting the A/C in the window and installed was a chore on its own. The unit stays in the window year round because I don't have a place to store it.

My apartment has a Ruud UAND-024-JAZ installed since 2006. It takes approximately 7 hours for it to reach the temperature the thermostat is set to (77) My landlord had a service personcome out and flush the coils 2 months ago, the unit was checked and the vents have been cleaned. He said the unit was fine. My electric bill is running about $100 a month..which I think is high. I wonder if there is something else that was overlooked.. Regards, Linda

The window unit is turned on, but doesnt seem to be very strong with blowing cold air . is there something that can be checked on the unit? something that can be replaced on the unit-like a filter? since it is in a west window and very hot outside...is it just harder to keep cool?


First make sure the filter and coils are clean, then be sure you have it set for recirculate and not outside air allowance, and if ou wait til the room is very hot it will take a while to cool that room down to a comfort level. the fan and temperatur ... Air Conditioners

We recently replaced an old window unit with a westpointe a/c mwk-08 unit. The old unit was dripping water in the house but the new unit doesn't seem to be dripping any water? Could this possible be a drip "less" unit or is it installed incorrectly? I've heard the horror stories about mold building up in window units & causing MAJOR health issues.


If the old unit was dripping condensate into the house, it was installed incorrectly. The replacement unit may have been installed correctly so the condensate drains outside. ... Air Conditioners

In February 2009 I had an Amana 16 SEER heat pump airconditioner & heater installed. It replaced a Frazier Johnston which had an after-market UV light installed on it. When the dealer installed the Amana I asked if they could transfer over the UV light to the new unit, which they did. Within weeks of the installation of the new unit it started to emit an obnoxious smell of something burning everytime the heater would run. You could not stand to be in the house during or after the heat had ru

I am renting an apartment that has 3 Singer Conditioners installed in the exterior walls of the unit. They appear to be at least 30 years old (and may be 40+ years old). The main unit (for heating and cooling all but the 2 bedrooms) broke down. The landlord is out-of-state, so we took care of getting it repaired. It needed a new motor. After the unit was installed with the new motor (and a cleaning), it emitted a foul, unbearable odor. I made the repair company come back and rinse the unit

I have installed 2 of the 3 evaporators, the other evaporator I will install at a later date. I have power at condenser and evaporator. I cannot get the evaps to come on with the remote controller?

Hello- We bought the Haier window AC unit last summer - Model #ESA3069. We live in the Seattle area so this is not something we need to use often, but nonetheless, it is nice to have in the master suite, especially on unusually hot days or a series of warm days when the upstairs gets stagnate. We ran the unit all day yesterday. By the evening we were hearing lots of water dripping noises. The unit was leaking on to the window sill. The lower portion of the screen behind the vent that opens w

This is our first summer to use our Goodman central air conditioning unit and we are having alot of condensation on our windows and doors. We need to know if our service tech installed a unit too small for our home since we never had this problem with the brand that he removed to install the Goodman. Any response will be greatly appreciated!


Your issue may be just the opposite of what you suspect. If the unit is too small, it will run continuously, but may do a better job of de-humidifying the space because the A/C unit has more time to pull humidity out of the air.\015\012\ ... Goodman Air Conditioners

I have a 24,500 BTU LG installed in my window. The unit works wonderful when it actually cuts on, its brand new, and is able to drain, and installed per the instructions. The unit stays on all the time, but will only cool for 5-10 minutes at a time, the rest is just the fan running with no cool air, just normal temperature air. What am i missing?

We have a carrier heat pump/ac unit. Our ductwork in the attic has condensation all over it and it is dripping thru our newly installed insulation to the sheetrock on the second floor thereby staining, leaving sheetrock wet and possibly being taken over by mold and mildew. What can be done to improve this problem. We are under a 10 year warranty plan with this unit and the company that installed it. Windows have condensation on them. Humidity is 60 to 70 percent.


Usually if there is a lot of condensation, then there is bare/uninstulated metal in the duct work. Now if the unit itself is condensating then putting a condensation pan under the unit with a drain should fix this problem. A far as the windows it w ... Carrier Air Conditioners

I have a Lennex heat pump unit which was installed in 2008. Our area (Savannah, GA) has experienced some abnormal cold temps lately.

I have a frigidaire window unit. i cannot recall the exact # of the unit. but, my problem is that the unit still cools, but the smell it emits is similar to that of a wet dog. i opened the unit and cleaned the filter, i noticed there was what appeared to be a second filter, but i did not see a way to get it out. after cleaning the filter, i turned to unit on and got the same results. i think the unit # is something like FAM187STA
