Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I have a 4-ton Frigidfaire air conditioning unit on my 2400 square foot home, but I am not receiving the cooling I should receive. My split system model is #: FT4BF-048K. My air handlers Model is #:B4VM-X48K-C. I suspect my problem may be duct size. What should be the sizes of supply and return ducts on this unit? Phone 941-776-9270.


Answers :

Hi, the ducts are 18" round at the beginning and branch out to smaller sizes for other rooms. 10" for living areas, 8" for bedroom, down to 6" for bathrooms if they have them.If this unit was just installed, I would recommend getting the contractor out and do a balance of the duct work as they should have installed hand dampers to balance out the system, so you will have equal air distribution throughout. I would have went with a 5 ton unit for 2400 SQ.' home, but that's what the contractor recommended. If its only been there a short time, get them back out there as you may have other problems. If its not a new system, it may need to be serviced, outdoor coil washed, you may have a small freon leak, anything could be wrong. This is what I recommend, call out the contractor.

Dear Sir/Madam, I have a 12 years old Goodman split AC. Recently the blower in the air handler was not starting sometimes. I changed the capacitor, but the problem is still there. I guess that the fan relay switch may be bad. Where can I find the fan relay switch for Goodman center AC? The model no for air handler is AW24-05c, the serial no is 9904464660. You help will be much appreciated. Thanks, Sherman

We have a Vulcan ducted heating unit model HX100, recently we have experienced problems with the unit where is it not heating the house, the unit goes on but blowing cold air. We have had a couple of technicians to repair it and still not working. One fixed the switch pressure & the other the flame sensor connection.

Condensing unit continues to run after air handler is stopped. Problem is intermittent. Thermostat replaced. Suspect air handler relay. which one?


When this happens, most often you'll have a stuck contactor coil on the condenser. If you buy it , it should cost $20---to 15.00 and you can add if you turn off the power (240volts) and the furnace power! ... Goodman Air Conditioners

I have a Jantrol heat pump & A/C. It is approximately 10 years old. For the last 3 summers the compressor unit will freeze when the air handler fans fails to come on. It worked fine for 2 weeks this year before it happened. I've be able to thaw it out and restart the unit and it works from days to weeks before this occurs again. The last time it happen, I had a problem getting the air handler fan to come back on, but it did eventually. I've been thinking it may be the sequencer, but now I'm wond

Ok..here's one. I have entire air duct system that is condensating ON THE OUTSIDE, UNDERNEATH. I noticed the problem before and after cleaning the coil in a closet air handler. Air runs fine, cools normal. But this condensation baffles me. It is even on the plenum! The pipes seem wrapped fine, and the plenum is good to go as well.

KENMORE Room air conditioner-Model #58078183890 - This is a very good, but older unit. The problem that I am now experiencing is that, it is now beginning to make loud intermittent noises (such that of a car?s old or slipped belt).I looked at the Air handling and cycle parts diagram, and noticed that the motor is oil free I believe and there is no belts. Can you please assist me as to what parts I may need to purchase?


What kind of intermittent noise are you hearing from the air conditioner? Is it like a knocking noise? If it sound's like knocking, then it's either the fan or bearing that holds the fan. First, the first thing that you need to check is ... Air Conditioners

There is a switch on my 1 1/2 ton Ruud furnace/Air handler that is not working properly. The unit would not turn on, even though the thermostat was working. I took the panel off of the air handler and found that a switch had been duct taped into the on position on the unit. Apparently, the tape had shifted and the switch was no longer in proper position. when i moved the switch, two green indicator lights lit up. When i turned the unit back on, the A/C worked. Clearly, there is a problem w

Replacement My airconditioner has started to leak water into the room, and is becoming noisier. Does any one know what would be the cureent model replacement for it? Also, the manual says if it is leaking into the room to tilt it back, but it is wedged in tightly, and has also never done this before, so I suspect this may not be the problem.

Compressor I have a air condition unit that blows out cold air for a little while and then the air in neither cold nor hot. I had someone come and check it out and they said the compressor was bad. Is that really the problem or could it be something else? The model I have is Intertherm T3RC-042K. I just don't want to have to spend that much money on fixing the compressor and that is not the problem. If it is the problem, is it something that can be done yourself or does a professional need to do
