Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Everstar mpk10cr grinding compressor I think.... Fan works fine, will kick into cool mode (elevated fan level) for a few seconds then it sounds like the compressor has a loose mount or something... sometimes it rattles for a few minutes (and cools) but sometimes it shuts the rattling off as fast as it starts and doesnt really ''cool'' or dehumidify.... Some days its works fine all day, others it just never really gets its ''**** together'' so to speak... Can users recharge the coolant themselve

Hi, I hear you , you have to keep her happy and cool!! First of all, no you can't buy R-22 unless you are a contractor and you have a certification card showing you are qualified to use freon. This is not your problem from what you are saying. If this unit sounds as though it has marbles rolling around inside when it stops cooling, you have broken valves internally. A valve has come apart moving around in the compressor causing this noise and no cooling and sometimes it will work, hard to explain without showing you on a set of manifold gauges. A broken or bad valve, you will have a high low side pressure and a lower then normal high side pressure. The compressor is not able to pump freon through the system properly at all times. In your case, one has broken of and rattling around. I am sorry to be the one to tell you but, you will need to have the compressor changed. There is nothing you can do. You can rent portable a/c units at large equipment rental places to keep her cool while this is being changed out. I would call out a tech to check and confirm this, and have them give you the estimate. Depending on the age, It would be worth changing it out and not putting in a window/wall unit. They will not do the job like the one you have. Anyway you go it will cost you some$$$. Get the best deal you can with the one year warranty on the compressor and also, buy the 4 year extended warranty, its worth the money!! I hope I have given you some direction to go in. I know this is a bad time to loose a compressor, but I go through this all summer. I wish you the best. Please keep me posted and be kind when rating me?? Thank you and Sincerely,

Just bought a used 1987 Real-Lite truck camper. The roof air unit is Dometic as well as the LP/AC refrigerator. When turned to "cool" the air conditioner really draws down, dims the lights, and eventually blows the home AC breakers. It works fine on blower fan only but as soon as I engage the "cool" settings, big brown out. The fridge doesn't work at all. I'm in the Nashville area. Suggestions


To start with, if it's plugged in to a 15 amp breaker, and extension cord, the compressor starting up may just be enough to trip the breaker. It will draw close to 15 amps on start-up of compressor, and if there is a light extension cord used to plug ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

Hi,I am really hoping to find someone to help me if possible. I have a one year old carrier infinity 4ton 17seer condenser and a 5ton variable speed air handler. I has worked fine but now i am getting a SYSTEM MALFUNCTION on the thermistat. When this message appears the air handler continues to blow and only the fan on the condenser continues to run but NOT the compressor so it is not cooling. At times it begins cooling again but then later stops cooling and shows the same malfunstion message. I

Stove ignites fine runs for anywere from 5 to 10 minutes and then shuts down with a E message.

When it does shut down and is on cool down it surges sometimes and will shut down and then start back up.

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 LG Lan125HV works fine on air conditioning ( cool) but heat pump does not trigger when I move to heat or combined settings. Tried all temperature and fan settings, tried waiting to see if unit waiting so as not to blow cold air, nothing works. Switch back to cooling and everything works fine.


I talked to LG customer support (800) 243-0000. The tech told me that this model had a problem with the indoor thermistor. It doesn't fail with an open-circuit condition, so you don't get an error code. The thermister just goes out of range and be ... LG Heat cool Window Air Conditioner

I have a Ruud heat pump/air conditioner. The out side fan and unit works fine and cools fine but now the inside fan that blows the cool air in will not turn on. We can turn the fan with our hand so I don't think it is locked up. Please help!


You didn't mention if you checked for 115 volts at the power supply to the air handler. The unit outside has its own power supply. A lot of times the switch that is on the wall doesn't like to work after its been turned off and back on for service, ... Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner

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. They work perfectly for cooling. All fans work perfectly and the compressor works perfectly for cooling. Thanks...

Wont work I have a Maytag central air thats about four years old. Once in a while it would stop blowing really cold air and would just blow mildly cool air. What I would do to fix this is flip the breaker off and then flip it back on again. When I did this the "high cool" light would come back on and everything would work just fine. This time that solution wont work. I have left it off for an hour at a time multiple times. I played with every switch and checked and cleaned every filter. We live

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

I have an old Ruud(ac/heater)top house. Maybe 20 years old. the fan extracting hot air from coils sometimes stops working and the unit does not cool. I called a local repair man and he changed a small module of some sort. he said it was the problem. two weeks later the samething. I believe he's an idiot and im relectant in calling another repairman. I went up and with a small screwdriver i gave the fan a little push and it began to work. Can the fan motor be the problem?
