Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I don't know if the motor is shot or what, but when you turn it on, it hums as though it's going to come on, but nothing blows out and nothing ever kicks on. 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.


Answers :

The fan motor might be bad or the fan blades are obstructed. the compressor won't turn on if the fan isn't blowing. see if you can move the fan easily manually.

I have an Edgestar 14000HS air conditioner. My Water light is blinking when I plug it in and the STOP sign is flashing on the screen. I tried draining the water reservoir but nothing came out of the drain. I called customer service and they said the float valve was probably stuck. Has anybody had the same problem and fixed it and have any advice? Customer Service just said to call a small appliance repairman but I would rather fix it myself - doesn't sound like it should be that complicated

Window mounted air conditioner blows warm air and recently when I turn it on to use the fan only it trips the power strip. I'd really like to know how I could possibly fix this problem myself please?

I have 2 questions. I have a model # M6d18E7A-E Maytag window unit air conditioner and only the lights will come on. (no motor, fan, Nothing) I cant remember how old this unit is so is it worth fixing or should i replace it?

My Carrier 21000 BTU air conditioner (model YCB213E built in 1996) has always worked perfectly until yesterday. When I pushed the red button to turn it on - nothing happened. The digital screen shows the letters PF but not the words that usually appear. Since I cannot find the owners manual, I am currently clueless. I would like to be able to fix it myself if possible since it weighs a ton and would be a real pain to remove and take to a repair shop. Any advice at all on where to start

This is probably a really dumb question :) But since I know know nothing about air conditioners, have to ask :) The small/medium type that you set-up in windows, can they be just set in a room? With space behind them, like fans? Thank you, lyewii

We own an air-conditioner Model # ARP-1008. We would like to know what to use when you put the pipe out of the window. How do we block the sides of the pipe so only the hose pipe is expelling the air. We have gone to hardware stores and no one has an answer. Do you see some kind of foam padding or accordion-type material to block the opening in the window on either side of the hose pipe? Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks

(24 volts from R to W, which should start the heater. Nothing. No relay "click" like when AC comes on. If i jumper R to Y, AC comes on ok. Does this sound like a relay gone bad on the circuit board?

We purchases a Haier portable air conditioner CPN11XCJ last year via QVC. By the time we purchased it, we really didn't need so stored it unopened. Opened it up last week due to extreme heat for this time of year. I just plugged it up near an open window and it the cool air was wonderful. However, when my husband installed the hoses and window screen, the thing rattled awfully. I mean a very loud rattling noise like the compressor was having problems. If we take the hose off, it doesn't rattle b


There are only a couple of things that could make it rattle with hose installed. One, if the hose cuff is somehow extending through the grate on the unit and making contact with the fan or there is probably some sort of a fitting, like a dryer vent, ... Air Conditioners

Hello my air conditioner is not blowing cold air. It seems like only the fan is working. I set the temp to between 16-18 celcius and the temp that is showing is 28 celcius. Also is showing E5 on the ac small screen. It was serviced about 3 weeks ago and was working fine. This problem started about 2 days ago. Nothing has changed and nothing has been tampered with. Hope you can help Thanks :)


What did they do when it was serviced?It sounds like there may be a leak if it does not get cold at all anymore.Although,lasting 3 weeks,depending on how much you used it,it would be a very tiny hole leaking.The other most likely suspect would be the ... Air Conditioners

The air conditioner is emitting cool air instead of cold air. I have the setting on cold and the temperature setting at 60 degrees. On these days that have been near and over 100 degrees, that cool air offers no relief. When we first got the unit, it emitted cold air. We've changed nothing. The unit is not installed in a window but rather in a hole made for it in the wall.

My coleman mach 3 sounded funny when I woke up this morning. The volume of air coming out of the vent was greatly decreased. It sounded like my window air conditioner sometimes sounds when its full of condensate. This air conditioner is brand new and only used 3 days. Could it be that the condensate is not draining properly?


Probably, check to see if the condensate is properly trapped, high static units sometimes require a trap to drain correctly, (it may be internal) ... Air Conditioners
