Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I have a Panasonic 11,500 BTU Window A/C for my bedroom. It does not condense any water on humid days and the thermostat keeps cycling on/off. The model is CW-XC120VK. My living room model compressor is on constantly trying to make up for the larger model and I can see the water dripping out the back. The compressor on the big one does come on, but just then shuts off and my bedroom temperature rises above the set 23C. This is a two year old model. Help!


Answers :

\015\012Compressor starts and stops in seconds
\015\012There are Five Main reasons that this will happen
\015\0121 - A bad run capacitor (silver or metal capacitor)
\015\012It’s either shorted, grounded or open.
\015\012If it’s shorted a lot of times it will bulge out, (sometimes slightly)
\015\0122 - A bad start kit ( plastic capacitor and Relay connected to it )
\015\012The capacitor is either shorted or open
\015\012The relay either has an open coil between terminals #1 and #5
\015\012Or the relay is stuck.
\015\012Any time you change the capacitor or relay you should change
\015\012the other, especially if they are over a year old.
\015\0123 - A loose, burnt or disconnected wire
\015\0124 - Wired wrong
\015\0125 Compressor is locked up

I bought this model and have used it very little. Maybe on an off for a couple months. Now when I turn the unit on everything displays fine but when I set the temps below room temperature the compressor seems to come on but the blower fan doesn't so no cold air comes out. No warning lights or anything are on and there isn't any water to drain.

We have a window unit model ash08fas1 and it is leaking water into the window to our carpet. Does this model come with a drip pan or plug that needs to be moved? And how do we access it?


Look at your unit from outside the house. The back of the air conditioner should be slightly lower than the front. If it is level or the front of the air conditioner is lower it will drip into the house. Some window units have a drain for the wate ... GE ASL05LA Air Conditioner

Our frigidaire window a/c unit (model faa067p7a) does not seem to be operating properly. There is no condensate forming anywhere (beneath the coils is dry and no evidence of water and there is no water coming out of the tube under the coils into the styrafoam drip area). Everytime we run the unit it cools the room to a degree but the humidity also goes way up. I tried the reset button on the power supply but that didn't seem to have any effect. Any ideas?


It sounds like your unit is low on freon or the compressor is not kicking in. If the compressor kicks in you can hear it turn the unit on fan only or turn the thermostat off then turn the unit to demand cool you should hear a hum even vibration when ... Frigidaire Compact Air Conditioner

I have a hampton bay window unit that is 220. I can't find a model number, but the unit is about 5 years old. When I turn it on, I can hear the compressor come on, but it doesn't cool. I have tried to clean the unit with a water sprayer, and then lubricate the fan, but it still won't cool.

I have a Carrier furnace and noticed water on the floor. I saw it was coming from the filter housing. I pulled out the filter which was wet only on the bottom And noticed the pan/track it sits in had water in it. There is no water dripping from above it or in the duct leading to the blower or the cold air return. It's like the water appears from nowhere... I changed the filter and the same thing happened. Where is the water coming from?


Hello, there might be a crack in the condesate pan. Usually if the leak is concentrated in one area that is the cause. If the water would be leaking all around then a blockage in the drain line would be a problem. Have the drain pan inspected. ... Air Conditioners

I have a split system sanyo heat pump model # kmh0922. The evap. fan will not come on when called for in fan mode. When i put it to heat the indoor fan will also not come on. The compressor runs but the reversing valve seems to stay in the cooling mode. When it is put into cooling the indoor fan goes off after 15 seconds and will not come back on. (The condenser fan and compressor seem to act normal in cooling.) Any ideas as to what the problem could be? Thank you, Mike

Model ck42-1a compressor won't come on. I replaced the intake filter about a month ago. It was a pleated filter and was real caked when I replaced this month. Can that cause the compressor to go out? I have two units and the pipe coming in to the house is cold on the good unit but not on the bad. Could that be anything but the compressor? Low freon or a-coil freezing in the house?


The fact the filter was very dirty and the door partly open allowing non filtered air to enter the system leads me to a possible dirty evaporative coil on the furnace. That can cause poor airflow and iced up coil reducing airflow even more. In the lo ... Goodman CKL42AR42 Air Conditioner

Hi I have a furnace mounted model HE220 A,B which I installed about 2 years ago. This year, it doesn't send water into the humidifier, I checked the saddle valve and tubing and when I disconnect the tube from the solenoid valve, water comes out of the inlet tube but does not come out of the tube leading the the humidifier pad. Please tell me if the solenoid can be taken apart and cleaned, or is it necessary to replace the valve entirely? Thanks, John Strandell phone 920 748-5310 PS the solenoi


Hi,\015\012Taking apart the solenoid valve is never a good thing... they rarely work well when reassembled...\015\012It is best to change it out...but before doing that make sure that you have 24vac coming to the valve when it should be o ... Honeywell Air Conditioners

I have a Friedrich Model KS10E10-A 1000 BTU wall unit. Lately it's dripping water from the front radiator of the unit. I don't know why. Can you let me know if I will need a new unit. It's cooling fine only for the water dripping. Kindly let me know. Thanks. John T. Xenis


AC units work similar to dehumidifiers, and remove moisture from the air, the moisture drains into the bottom of the AC unit. The AC unit should be sloped slightly downward on the outside so that the water runs outside rather that inside.\015\0 ... Friedrich Air Conditioners

Anyway, my Mom has a lot of water coming out of a pipe, that sticks out from the bottom in the back of the unit, and it is not connected to the pipe that goes out the window. She told me it looks like the pipe should have a cap on it, but it is open and that is where the water is coming from. Should it have some sort of c

The downstairs ac unit has a pump that pumps the condensation frm the evaporator ( i assume) through a long tube outside. The AC would not kick on and the pump continuously ran. I was told to clear the line on the pump because the ac wont come on if the pump isnt working right. That was the case and I took an air compressor and blew out the line. I poured water in the pump to make sure it was working and did this three times and each time the water did pump outside. But the ac still wont come
