Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Outside unit is running however it is not cooling.I cut off the circuit breaker wait 20 or so minutes and turn it back on and the unit works perfect for a while (no set amount of time ranges from hours to days) any ideas?It is a new unit and did the same thing when it was turned on for the first time.Worked 2 weeks before starting again.Unit is a little low on freon.It is a Goodman 3.5 ton ac only(gas furnace)


Answers :

Sounds like there is a Freon leak and has been since it was installed and is going off on because of low charge, you will need to call a competent A/C repairer, more then likely the leak will be in the air handler, should cost under a $100 to fix. Good Luck Tim

Tripped the breaker. Pulled the control fuses, and this time made sure I had new batteries in my thermostat. Started to work again. All was good. pus

I have a 2011 Wildwood travel trailer. I tried to use the air conditioner for the first time this weekend. When I turned the themostat to cool and 65 degrees the air unit "clicked" one time but the unit did not start. I tried various settings but nothing. When I turned the thermostat off the unit clicked one time again. This is a brand new trailer and the first time I tried the air. Any thoughts?


First thing to check is that the breaker for hydro to AC unit is in the on position. The clicking sounds like 12 VDC is OK but hydro may not be on to it. ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

I have a Goodman CPLE42-1 split system. I had a power outage and my first floor unit would not cool anymore. The air handler/blower in the ceiling is working fine, but the fan outside is not turning on. When I went to look for an overload reset on it, I switched off the breaker on my second floor unit by accident, and now it is doing the same thing. Both fans on the outside will not turn on. Both thermostats will turn on the air handlers in the ceiling. Seems like I re-created the same exact pr

Central Airconditioner Heat Pump Weather King Brand outside unit continues to run even when thermostat is disconnected from terminal block base. Have to flip ckt bkr off to turn unit off. Recently it even started up on its own without turning on the fan and started to ice the inside cooling fins. Thermostat is new and was doing same thing with old thermostat.


It sounds like you might have a short in the wiring that goes from the furnace (inside part) to the condenser (outside part). Follow these lines by hand and check to see the wire isn't damaged and shorting out. ... Air Conditioners

E6 error I have a new Friedrich split A/C unit (ten days old). Just ran it for the first time and after a couple of minutes, E6 shows up on the display panel on the wall mounted unit. After some detecting, I discovered that the unit outside never comes on. The wall unit does blow but it seems to just be blowing air (yes, I have the remote set to "snowflake"...but the "snowflake" light on the display panel also turns off after the initial couple of minutes.

I have an older ac roof top unit (1988) its made by Coleman. When you first turn on the unit as long as it is cool, it will run for about five minuets on the low speed cycle (very cold), if you switch it to high cool it will run for about one to two minuets then it will trip the house breaker (20amps), not the couch breaker (30amps). I replaced the start cap, motor cap and another unnamed cap. The only things left in the system are a start relay and a thermal cut off switch which sits on top o

I have a new Goodman GasPack heating and A/c unit. I turned the a/c on for the first time this year and I'm having problems with the theromastat. When it is set at any set point say 77 the a/c comes on even though the set point temperature is 77. If I set the set point at 78 the a/c comes on and off. My question is if the set point is a certain temperature shouldn't the a/c only come on when the temperature goes above the set point and turn off when it gets at or below the set point?

My ac unit is not working properly. It stoped working the other day and we called a HVAC out. He said it was the transformer. Replaced that and put a new stat on. Then in less than 24 hours the thing stops again. Replaced the transformer again. The unit will not work right. The fan blows on the (on) position and the heater part works but everytime we turn on AC it makes a buzzing or humming sound and does not come on. If we leave it like that it will burn out the transformer. We replaced the rel

I have a 2002 year model trailer, it has a Duo Therm Quick Cool High Efficiency by Dometic. Because the fan motor would not start by itself, it popped the breaker after a couple minutes the first time I turned it on this year. I took the top off the unit and give the fan a little spin and it would then run. Once again after a few minutes the breaker popped. I changed the capacitor for the fan but it does the same thing. Could it be the armature in the motor causing the problem? Any sug

We have a York (ceiling mount) air conditioner that has been shutting down 15-30 minutes after it has been turned on. At first, my husband thought it had something to do with a sleeper timer and started working around the "timer". It started working fine. A month ago it started doing the same thing (shutting down after 15-30 minutes) and we haven't been able to fix the problem since.

We had a brand new unit put in a couple of years back. When it was installed it worked. Once winter came, it obviously was turned off. Then the following summer, it would turn on but just blow air, would not cool at all- so the unit installers came out and repaired it. It worked through the summer, then the following summer-it wouldnt cool again-they came back out and fixed it again. Third summer in a row-it is not working again!!

All the fins on the fan blade basically flew off on the first start up attempt last year. The entire unit, heating and A/C, were serviced within the last year by a certified p

After installing the unit in the wall and properly insulating the perimeter gap around the unit I turned on the equipment.

It then turns itself on again and works fine for another 10 minutes and then shuts itself off again. This goes on for ever, in

First, my thermostat wouldn't shut off either my heat pump or my furnace (it runs both). Thought it was an issue with the thermostat...got a new one. Worked like a charm for 1 day.

Doesn't seem to be putting out hot air now. Any ideas? The thermostat came with a new box that sits inside the ceiling and it's been replaced, bu

5,200 BTU unit. Compressor and fan both work when first turned on, then compressor quits after 5-10 minutes of operation. Won't turn on again even after 5-minute fan-on cool down. Process repeats after AC unit has been turned off for 10 minutes and re-started. Is this worth trying to fix, or should I replace the whole unit?
