Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

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


Answers :

These filters should have a arrow on the perimeter that points in the direction of the air flow. Most all filters do, so look it over good.From working with these filters in the past, the green mesh would be the way the direction of the return air would go. pointing in. There are so many of these filters on the market today, they have black mesh on both sides and green on both sides, or like your , green and black.Check for the arrow and if not, go with the green facing you. If you were to get it wrong, it would not cause any damage to this unit what so ever.

I would imagine that the darke coloured side of the filter goes inwards towards the machine ,it seems obvious

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 Rheem RCBA3765AS17 Air conditioning unit is leaking water again from the left corner of the unit under the drain pan. I just had this fixed a month ago and cleaned the reusable filter. It is now covered with slimey black stuff! How do I get that filter clean again? I ran water forcefully through it, but that's not good enough. Is there anything else I can do myself before calling a professional again?

A/C does not blow cold air. It has frosting built on the pipe that connects to the a/c unit outside. There is some water built up where the filter sits. I turnd off the a/c for a full day, the frost melted, filter is very clean, and nothing on the inside seems abnormal. I started the a/c again after 1-day but the frost started to built up again and no cold air was blowing. (it blew cold for a few minutes only). I don't know what the problem can be.

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

Very strange indeed! The ffault is on anyway and there is a dirt that comes on to stick to the fan. So the logic is that the fan is bringing up the dust to the fan either from the inside of the unit or from the outside. if you are spot sure that ther ... Mitsubishi Mr. Slim MXZ30TN Air Conditioner

Wall A/C only SPORADICALLY blowing cold air. Turn it off and back on, you can feel it's cold, but only if you're 5 inches from it. After a couple of minutes, fan is only blowing warm air again.

It is over 100 degrees outside with very low humidity the last few days.(Los Angeles) ; since it's a wall a/c, of course 1/2 of it is outside in the heat.
