I have a Mitsubishi split air conditioner; Model number: MSH-18NA. When I turn the air conditioner on with the remote control, sometimes it works normally, sometimes it doesn't. When it is not working properly, sometimes the fan turns continuously and sometimes it doesn't. No matter whether the fan is working or not, no cold air comes out. The green operation light is blinks and the indicator light is off. It looks like the outdoor unit is not working because the outdoor fan is not moving. Wha

My fan and heater work fine, but today I turned on my air conditioner for the first time this year. It did not feel like it was getting cooler so I went outside and noticed that my outside unit was not working.

Intermittent heat I have a Carrier (Payne) unit (FA4ANF030) with intermittent heat output. The air works as does the fan when in heat mode, but usually no heat. Sometimes it will suddenly begin to put out heat normally and will function fine...until it doesn't. The thermostat was old, so I replaced it first. Seems to make no difference at all since it works exactly as before.

I just had a new Dometic roof air conditioner installed it works good for about 10 min. the the fan stops and makes a humming noise .After about 10 min the air will work ok again.

Great site. I have a Simplicity SPAC 8499-5 Portable Air Conditioner and it was working fine up until yesterday (~2 years old). The unit is running and the fan operational but while the green light for Cool/Dry is illuminated that actually cooling unit for the air conditioner is not kicking in. The system is just blowing air (like in Fan) mode. I have checked the water reservoir and it is empty and placed properly in the unit so the switch is engaged but no AC.

Hello, We bought a Perry Home in Georgetown TX last March and it is still under its two year warranty. Our air conditioner stopped cooling today. It has been working well for over 1 year. We came home from work and the temperature is 86F inside and climbing. My wife left the house at noon and the temp was 76F (where we keep the thermostat in the summer). The Air conditioner outside unit's fan is operating and no noise. The inside blower is running normal - no problem. The model number on the o

My air conditioner stops cooling. Occasionally, it will just function on fan mode even though I confirm that it is on cool mode. Warm air comes out even on the absolute coldest setting. I have to turn it off and use the manual reset button on the plug to get it to work properly. The problem started after the unit iced up one night and it hasn't worked right since. Is there any way to fix this or am I gonna have to get a new AC?

Hello, I have two Yokohama Split type air conditioners that work fine for cooling, but when switched to heat they just blow air at room temperature and then after about 1 minute go into a standby mode indefinately.

My air conditioner has started leaking and has very poor air flow. It worked fine in winter but when I switched it to cool water is coming out of it. Sometimes the fan will work (no cold air) for about 20 minutes before it starts to leak, other times it leaks straight away. Any help appreciated.

My Fujitsu Converter Air conditioner is not working... The Green light is flashing 13 times - the red light flashes continuously very quickly. The fan does not commence at all and therefore no heat or cool air comes from the conditioner at present. Also, once I press the start button on the remote control unit and the light being to flash, I am then unable to stop the unit - even after pushing the start/stop button - the lights continue to flash.

I have/had 2 GE 8000btu wall air conditioners and at 3 years old, both of them within 2 weeks of each other had stopped blowing out cold air, just now the way a fan would blow. It almost seems to me that GE has purposely made these air conditioners to stop working properly at a certain time so I should buy new ones. I replaced one of them already with another brand, now I have to replace a 2nd one. I can't really afford to do this. Is it possible that they have both run out of Freon? Otherwise I

Hi, I have a wall mount midea split a/c model- MSG-36HR that will only heat. when put in cool mode it only blow's room temp air and the outdoor unit won't run. On heat mode it works normally. I have cycled power a couple of times, changed modes on the remote numerous times and just in case, changed the batteries in the remote. The unit is about 3 yrs old. Do you have any pointers.

My coleman Mach Rv air conditioner with built in heat strip keeps tripping it's internal circuit breaker when running for any length of time. Just replaced heat strip with new one experienced same issue. I ended up with the fan continuing to run but only cold air comes out of the vents! When I removed the old unit and reset the circuit breaker it too worked again. Have no idea what is causing this to happen. The airconditing part of unit works just fine??? HELP! Ron
