Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Rooftop rv air conditioner doesn't work - what can I check myself without taking the rv to a repair place? will any air conditioner repair place do repairs or do I need to use an rv place?


Answers :

I'm assuming when you say 'doesn't work' you mean 'nothing comes on,' i.e. the fan or the compressor.
\015\012
\015\012If that's the case I would check for the AC breaker to see if it's tripped. Usually a 'tripped' breaker will look half on and half off, but sometimes it will be completely in the off positiion. Either way - it's usually because of a malfunction of the AC unit, so if that's the problem I would moniter it closely to see if it trips again. If it trips again in the immediate future I would then want to investigate the AC unit for the cause.
\015\012
\015\012Also, some RV's have fuses in the AC circuit - so you could check and see if you have any fuses labled AC or AC control voltage. If so - you can usually - tell by looking whether they are bad or not. If that's not possible try replacing your 'AC labled fuse' with a new one of the same size.
\015\012
\015\012I would also check your power supply (where the power cord to your RV plugs into) to make sure it is providing the proper voltage to your RV. Note: They also have breakers out on the box that you can reset. If they (breakers) appear ok - and you are at a RV park you could have the Park personel - check and to be sure the proper voltage is availible to your RV.

\015\012good luck!

I have a carrier weathermaker 9100 air conditioner / furnace. When the ac is running, water from the evaporater coil doesn't drain. It builds up around the colil and leaks all over the floor. I took apart the drain tubing sections and blew air through tehm with an air compressor. Some crud came out and I thought it would take care of the problem. It worked for a short time and now does it again. Is there something I am missing? Could there be something else that needs to be cleaned? Any

Our uni-aire reverse cycle air conditioner (model HAN-L6) is not as cold and the fan speed is not as high as it used to be. The unit is 2 years old. The internal air filter is clean. Could it need re gassing?


The fan speed could have a lot to do with the problem you are having. If the speed isn't right the a/c could ice up or not supply the proper air temp. 2 things could be happening here 1st the capacitor for the fan could be going out causing the fan ... Air Conditioners

I have a coleman air conditioner 6799A800 series- super mach. On very hot days it starts and cools very good, but then the compressor kicks out. We think it might be becasue so many people are using power for their air conditions that it's drawing the power down. My friend had the same problem he changed the capasitor in his unit and now it is working properly, could this be my problem? If so do you stock the capasitor I would need?

I just bought a portable air conditioner model c120e. Unfortunately the exhaust hose is too short to use in my window. I have a home built in the mid 60's so the window ledge is higher than in more recently built homes. Do you have longer hoses or even an extension part that I can use to eliminate this problem. I would expect I am not the only customer that has encountered this problem. Please let me know if you can provide a solution for this problem. I would probably need only about another 1

Just brought home a fedders aep09d2b*b portable air conditioner. bought it used. it worked well there but when I plugged it in at home it is making a lot of fan noise - more noise the higher the fan setting. sounds like it needs a lube job- can I use wd40?


If it was running fine before and you moved it and it's making noise, it sounds like something fell against the fan blades. The reason it sounds worse when you turn it up is that the fan is running fast. Grab a flashlight and check to see what migh ... Fedders A6P09D2B Portable Dual Hose Room Air Conditioner

I live in Florida, my a/c system, I believe it is a Rheem, has been heating the house fine all of this winter no problem.

No heat We had the mini split installed and have not needed the air conditioner yet. But now that I want the heat on, I can't get any. The indoor unit lights up and the fan comes on but only blows cold air. I have checked everything I dare to, and noticed that the outside unit doesn't seem to be running. I am reluctant to call the guy who installed it because he was not a happy guy to do it in the first place. But he was the builders choice. Any suggestions of things to check into myself?


From my experience, when a new heat pump unit doesn't switch over from one to another, its most often the thermostat isn't wired correctly. The reversing valve needs energized or the common is ... Sanyo 09KHS51 Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioner

Hi, I have 2 Toshiba compressors (PH170X & PH160X), New, for air conditioners. Can they be used to pump air? Does this cause any problems? Do they need to be filled with oil, and if so how much? They have 3 electrical connections on top marked S / R & C. I believe R is for Red - Active, what do the other letters stand for? I would appreciate any assistance. Regads Helmut.


No they will not pump air. the oil in the compressor circulates in the freon, the freon also cools the compressor. these run on 230 volts c-common r-run, and s- start from a capacitor. Sell them to a dealer ... Air Conditioners

I just bought a Danby portable air conditioner (model # dpac5070). The manual tells you how to use the direct drain hose if you want to "vent" the water outside. If I don't want to direct the water outside, do I need to use this hose? The product has a safety shut off feature so the water tank won't overfill. It's almost overfilled twice. I have the hose in the oblong hole on the top flap of the water tank. Am I doing this wrong? Please help!:)


You use the hose only for continuous draining outside of the unit into a bucket or what have you. You don't need to attach the hose at all. I actually need the hose if you want to part with yours. coatings(at)shaw.ca ... Danby Air Conditioners
