Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

My Danby Portable AC has a flashing BLUE light Sometimes it displays a message ER04 The unit works fine then randomly the compressor turns off. We recently had a national disater here in California with a lot of smoke from fires in the air. Could this have clogged something in the unit. To take it in is impossible for me as I can not physically lift or move this device other than roll it. I really need a answer aside from the one I got that was basically saying ''take it to a tech.'' with no con


Answers :

THE ER04 error is for two reasons.one for water bucket full and other is for power supply getting short in between.\015\012------\015\012IF THE WATER BUCKET IS THE FAULT
the switch is more likely the cause try removing bucket and pressing lever manualy by hand then start it up again and check out.
\015\012---------------\015\012but if the power supply getting short then power board needs to be checked by a multimeter and the faulty component on the board needs to be replaced.\015\012-------------\015\012check out both the option.any of the one will definately solve it.\015\012------\015\012thanks.please keep\015\012updated.please do rate the solution if helped.thank you for using fixya.
The code indicates a clog. Try checking the hose for clogs or kinks, then check or wash out and dry air filter.

You can try to leave unplugged for 8 hours to see if the machine resets itself.

Noise I just bought the 8000 and 10000 BTU Frigidaire air conditioners just before my move and have found that they are very noisy (especially the 8000 BTU unit). The sound of the air flow is very noisy and the 8000 BTU unit also seems be have a slight irritating whining noise. I was thinking about taking out the three screws I saw on the side of the unit in hopes of getting the front off and attaching some cloth or something inside to make it quieter. Since I have now moved into New York City a

I've just moved into a home with an existing Armstrong Concept 10 A/C unit that's at least 15 years old. When I left for a 2-week vacation, the unit was working great. I set the thermostat to 77 to save energy. Upon returning, I lowered the thermostat to 70 and waited, and waited and waited several hours only to find the temp. in the house was not lowering, it was actually rising! I could see the unit's fan blade was not moving so I checked the circuit box in the basement, and the A/C breaker


Hello 93 The compressor caused the breaker to trip.A weak capasitor or burnt wire is a common cause.It sounds like the compressor is NOT on even though the fan is.It may need a new wire or maybe a HARD START kit to help restore operation.Call for hel ... Air Conditioners

Recently moved into my mothers home (deceased0. Her Carries central air unit is 2-3 years old. worked 2 weeks prior to moving in, but has not worked since. The unit would buzz a th the fan motor, but would not spin. The capacitor was swollen, so I replaced it. The fan now works, but is not cooling. Could the refrigerant be the problem, even though the fan turns on. Thank you!

I have a Coleman roof mounted AC unit on a travel trailer. The unit model is 83338715. The unit just blows cool air not cold air like it should. I was told to replace the "Hard Start Capacitor" and "PTCR Start Device" which I did. This did not remedy the problem. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Could the problem be the "Compressor Run Capacitor"? Reason being that I hear no change in the blower sound when the unit kicks on???


Blowing 'cool air' could mean - room temperature air or it could be 'cool' because the system is low on refrigerant, and just barely doing any 'cooling' at all.\012\012To determine which is which - you need to know "for sure" if the compressor ... Air Conditioners

A/C Model: FAC107P1A My unit is not putting out cold air. The temp wire is not touching the coils. I've cleaned the filter, and behind it. What do you think the problem is? What needs to be done to fix the problem? Could it need Freon? What type of Freon does it take? I have a certified person to put it in, but I have to get the Freon myself. Is it a sealed unit? Will it be obvious to him, where to put in the Freon? He said that he's not sure, but hasn't looked at my unit yet. I have to g


Hello, if the filter, evap, coil, condenser coil are clean then most likely the unit if low on freon. most window units take either r 134a or r -22, it will say on the data plate on the unit.

Here is the origional thread: http://www.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?thid=5519006&prdid=0. I was to understand that the unit was creating very little suction at all, but last night when I went back to look at the unit, it appeared to be frozen-up again. (No air was moving through the vents and 5 minutes after turning the unit off, I could hear water draining through the condensation tube/drain) Is it possible that the tech did not show me what was really happening ? and I am really just l


Yes low on freon. That is a classic sign for being low on freon. ... Air Conditioners

I thought i smelled the ordor of burnt wire coming from somewhere in the house, which I could not figure out where it was coming from. I tried to regulate the therostat and found the a/c would not come on. So i turned off the unit for a few minutes to turned it back on and all i could hear was a loud humming sound of the motor, but no air were coming out of the vents. The outside fan is moving. I wonder what could be the problem.


Sounds like a siezed up blower motor inside your furnace if you were running your air conditioner with out the blower motor it will turn everything into a block of ice at your indoor coil you need to let this thaw out \015\012i would ... Air Conditioners

I have always believed in Samsung products...in fact each and every appliance of mine is a Samsung. I bought a 2 ton split for my boutique just about 1.5 yrs ago. Recently it was not functioning and your engineers came and TRIED to fix it to no avail. Finally 3 days later they said they had to take the unit to their workshop so that they could fix it, check it and then return it. Needless to say they took 8 days to come and then kept the unit for a further 7 days. Exactly 2 weeks later the

Amcoraire minisplit A/C Model #AOS121HX Not cooling/heating P4 and p8 error codes After having the A/C head unit previously installed. I had to remodel and relocate the head unit to another location in the room. Not being an A/C Tech myself, i needed to move it out of the way for the remodel crew and could not wait for an A/C tech to do it due to scheduling conflicts. So I unscrewed both the 1/4 " and 3/8" (gas and liquid) lines from the compressor. It vented all the gas. I dont remeber


P4 is a overheating compressor code in the outdoor unit. You probably still have a leak. Have your brother remove the remaining freon and pressure/leak test with a charge of nitrogen.

Hot Upstairs I bought a new house 4 yrs ago and during the first summer I noticed that I could never get the upstairs cool. The best I get is 80oF My master bedroom is downstairs and very cool so being hot upstairs wasn't a big issue until now. Now my kids are ready to move into their rooms upstairs and I am wondering what I can do to cool these 3 rooms and a gameroom. No window unit AC is permitted in my subdivision. Every room has a vent but these vents are not big enough to produce enough coo


A good heating guy should be able to balance your dampers to increase the airflow upstairs. Keep in mind heat rises. 2nd floors are the hardest to cool. You may need to add more returns to pull the heat down the the evaporator so it can be cooled. I ... DeLonghi Pinguino PACL90 Portable Air Conditioner

The unit constantly freezes up. Suction is at 85, liquid is at 285, suction line temp is 52. Ambient 85, while inside is at 85-88. Only 1-2 degrees of superheat. Taking refrigerant out lowers line temp (backwards), while adding it raises line temp (backwards). Airflow is not bad but not great. Possible blocked metering device or evaporator?


Has anyone added refrigerant? If there was a blockage I would think the suction pressure would be lower. Are you sure it isn't just overcharged. If you take the ambient and add 20F that would give you a condensing temperature of 105 which gives you a ... Intertherm P3RA-030K Air Conditioner

On my 28 foot Itasca motorhome the air conditioner is leaking water through the gasket on the roof. I pulled the inside cover off and took out the four big boltd holding the roof top section, but I can't begin to even move the unit. I don't dare pry on the ceiling to try to lift it. Am I missing something or is it like a two man project.


You need to find where the drain is. The water should flow to a drain and not into the unit. Once you get the condensation draining properly you can use a good quality silicone to seat around the unit. You might check at a RV parts place and find a p ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

I have two Dometics on my rv. A 530515 and a 530516. They are working fine but 8 years old. I take the covers of yearly and clean the coils.

A few days ago I moved my portable air conditioner unit from one room to another. (Amcor 12,000BTU, Cooling/heating unit) Prior to moving it, the air conditioner and compressor worked fine. The unit is about a year old, and has only been used a few months of the year thus far. After I moved the unit into my bedroom, and plugged it in, everthing kept working fine, (including the compressor) but a funny, slightly burnt plastic smell (or some other chemical smell) was blowing out of the unit al

We wired a split system ac unit. after a year the ac contractor said we had a wire between the outdoor unit and the indoor unit reversed and it ran all the time. could that have happened? could that haved happened ? if so could you explain.


It's possible. On the air handler the red post on the circuit board always has voltage and should go to the thermostat. If for some reason it was hooked to one of the wires to the condensor it would have ran all the time. ... Air Conditioners

My unit is running but not blowing cool air. I went outside and the condenor fan was not moving. Took a stick and shoved a blade and the fan started moving but the air is still not cool inside. I did notice the air coming through the unit outside after fan was blowing was cooler than my 2nd a/c unit that was working fine. I wondered if the entire unit was frozen. I turned off unit at thermostat and figured I would see what happens tomorrow


Sometimes on new units it is common for the fan to not start until you give it a push. Did you happen to hear if the compressor was operating? If the unit was froze-up the Insulated Suction line would also be iced over as well. If it wasn`t it is mor ... Carrier 38CKC024 Air Conditioner

The other day. my American standard air conditioning unit (Allegiance 10 model 7A0030A100A0) would not stop running. The furnace was not running, yet the air conditioning unit was on. I could see condensation on the line running to the furnace. The next day the unit would not even start running. I shut it down, tried it the next morning and the unit ran for about 30 sec and stopped. Could the capacitor need replacing?
