Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

My Rinnai says not to use it without an air filter and to clean the air filter once a week--but I can't see an air filter. Is it possible that it was installed without one?


Answers :

If you have a RHFE263, 431 or 556, the air filter is located at the top in the seam where the wall trim piece attaches to the heater. It looks like a dryer lint filter.

Re : Carrier Xpression P1/P2 Plus series I have a query about the above Air-Conditioner. I have removed the Air Filters, and cleaned them. I have also removed the optional Photo-catalyst filters (2). I had not realised until I cleaned them that they were slightly different. One has a green mesh-like back, and the other has a black backing. Can you please tell me which sides these should be placed back in the air-conditioner please, as I don't want to cause a malfunction in the syste

We live in an apartment complex and have a Trane Air Conditioner, each unit has its own central air. I believe the one in our unit has clogged drain pipes, when we first moved in we didnt change the air filters and when we did, the filter was extremely dusty. My wife uses alot of powder and when I clean the drip pan below the grill where the drips into, I found a thick layer of whitish doh like crud.I feel like it is clogging the the 2 whites pipes that go from the drip pan into the drain down b


Hello You have to cut the pipe and blow out each end,You can use a 1"rubber hose from an auto parts store & 2 hose clamps, If you can't find the end.This will allow access in the future to clean out the pipes.It will slip over 3/4" PVC pipe.They sell ... Air Conditioners

The amana ap095r drain pan gets very dirty and mucky... but after unscrewing the back cover so I could vacuum both coils I dont see a way to clean the drain pan. The pan is part of the entire bottom (one big piece of plastic) and I can see the slime but cant clean it. Anyone have any ideas? Why wouldnt they make a detachable pan?


Pour some Mr. Clean in the pan and somehow use anything that will fit to clean the pan. Add more water to thepan and allow it to drain.\012\012As far as why they do that...They want to ensure you take it back for service so they can screw ... Amana AP095R Portable Air Conditioner

My daughter has a Bryant AC Model number 563AN048-A where the outside coils are freezing up. The repairman has been out twice and has cleaned the coils on the inside and outside units and has checked the coolant levels that he says are ok. Currently, if they remove the cold air return filter, air circulation is increased slightly and in doing so, the outside coil is not freezing. Can't run the system without a filter as the internal coil will clog. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Assoc

I have a GE Zoneline 5500 PTAC that doesn't throw any heat. The electronic display appears normal during operation, I hear a clicking when the unit is turned on and the fan kicks on but it just blows cold air. The unit was set to the highest heat setting and the air filters were cleaned and unplugging and restarting but still no luck.

Appliance i have an one year old central air conditioner (comfortaire heat pump). When installed they told me to change the filters every month. After a few months I realized my filter were never getting dirty. I scheduled the yearly maintenance on the unit. They said all was fun, but suggested that I change to a more expensive filter. I have changed filters but they never get dirty. I pulled the filter out and looked under at the "v" and noticed every week it is getting dirtier. What could be t

AC Out. Two year old house. Goodman A/C, two units one for upstairs. Cleaned coils of both outside unit, replaced filters, re-set breakers. Upstairs is cooling. Downstairs unit is running outside, not circulating air inside (inside temp 87). Vents inside are cool to touch, no air. Outside unit fan is pulling, but air exhaust is cool. Compressor ? Should air be circulating even if compressor not functioning. Is there anything in attic exchange that would affect downstairs circulation. Thanks.


Assuming that the 2 systems are isolated, that there isn't any cross over between the systems...It is normal for an air conditioner system, from window unit to central, to be able to circulate the air, even if not cooling. This is known ... Air Conditioners

Hi, My remote won't work for my air conditioner. Batteries changed. Can't tell if it's just remote or air conditioner unit as well that aren't functioning. Can you tell me if there is a manual way of operating the airconditioner without the remote? If it is the air conditioner, what do I try to get it to work?

Check the outdoor unit you should have hot air discharging out the top of the condensor. The insulated suction line should be sweating. The inside\015\012coile should be condensating and water should be flowing to a drain from the indoor unit. ... Goodman CLJ30AR32 Air Conditioner

Carrier CNPVP6024ATA I have a 2 yr old unit and was told that the evaporator coil needs to be chemically cleaned at a cost of $292.

On the A/C unit - 24ABB360A0030010 - I was told the blower wheel needed to be dry cleaned ($140) and the secondary heat exchange needed to be cleaned ($172). My builder has said there w

Make sure your thermostat is in a suitable location,and that your a/c unit is large enough to cool the whole house..go by this rule of thumb:1 supply per 200 sq ft minimum(One way to tell if it is undersized/not performing correctly is to close all t ... Air Conditioners

I have 2 air conditioners, one for each floor. The first floor a/c is Lennox,M/N 12 ACB 60-3P. I have the following issues for your advice: 1. The 1st floor gets more than normal dust thru the a/c ducts (evident from deposits on floor surfaces). The a/c ducts are fairly clean and it is a 9 yr old home. I called 2 separate technicians for advice and one said I need an additional filter near the Evaporator coil in the attic. The 2nd technician said that I need to add more area to the a/c outlets.


Sharda,\015\012For 1. The who suggested the filter is partially correct. As the filter would control the air intake, it would control the dust as well, but at the intake and not in the attic. \015\0122. The second tech is correct as there is no way o ... Air Conditioners
