Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

My air conditioner stops cooling. Occasionally, it will just function on fan mode even though I confirm that it is on cool mode. Warm air comes out even on the absolute coldest setting. I have to turn it off and use the manual reset button on the plug to get it to work properly. The problem started after the unit iced up one night and it hasn't worked right since. Is there any way to fix this or am I gonna have to get a new AC?


Answers :

If after reset the A/C cools then the fault seems related to the thermostat or the cut off pressure switch or load cut off.
\012However is there is no cooling at all the compressor and the gas pressure- check for leak if gas is absent.- must be checked .
\012If compressor is suspect you must check the estimate and decide whether it seems better to scrap and buy a new one.
My lg wall unit airconditioner is blowing air but not cold. this seems to have happened after at&t came to install new cable uverse in tv nnext to airconditioner.

I bought a brand new LG L1210ER Window/Wall Unit air conditioner a couple days ago. After installing the unit in the wall and properly insulating the perimeter gap around the unit I turned on the equipment. Immediately the unit starts to cool, however after 10 minutes of use it turns itself off (even the electronic display goes off) for a total of 5 seconds, yes seconds. 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

The outside compressor and fan will not shut off. I have turned the thermostat system to Off and even to heat, but it will not stop. I went on a trip, increased the room temp to 80 on the thermostat and left. When we returned 2 1/2 days later, the coils were frozen and no air was comiing through the vents, even with the blower motor working. So I turned the unit to furnace and melted the ice on the coils, but had to pull the fuses on the outside box to get the compressor to shut off. Is there a

Hello, my HVAC is constantly freezing, even after freon is added. I was told that I have a leak in the coils and need to chance the air handler - the outside unit is about 10 years old - air handler about 18 years old.

I have a Admiral AW-06CR1FM room air conditioner. Since last night, the LED panel on the unit displays "EE" and I can't get the unit to start. There is power in the circuit.

Now, I can do is press the re-set on the power sbcle, but that just produces the EE, and nothing else happens.

We have a Fujitsu ASY-40UIM3 air conditioner here in Spain. We had to move the outdoor unit yesterday and since then we cannot get it to work.

I turn the thermostat down at night. When I get up in the morning I turn it back up. The heat kicks on for a minute or two then the unit starts blowing colder air. If I turn the thermostat to the OFF position, wait until I hear all blowers stop, then turn it back to the ON position, it will start blowing HOT air again. Some times I have to perform this cycle 3 times to get it to keep blowing hot air. Any ideas as to what is shutting the furnace off? Thanks, Wayne

Was able to get the heat strip to run for a few minutes (smelled the dust accumulated over the summer burning off). Now, no heating whatsoever. When in the "Money Saver" mode, nothing happens. Fan will not come on and unit will not heat. With "Money Saver" mode off, the fan runs.

The front panel shows that the unit is still in cooling mode but the the unit just blows out warm air no matter how low I set the temperature. Then out of nowhere the unit will start cooling again.

The system is just blowing air (like in Fan) mode. I have checked the water reservoir and it is empty and placed properly in the unit so the switch is engaged but no AC.

The other day. my American standard air conditioning unit (Allegiance 10 model 7A0030A100A0) would not stop running. The furnace was not running, yet the air conditioning unit was on. I could see condensation on the line running to the furnace. The next day the unit would not even start running. I shut it down, tried it the next morning and the unit ran for about 30 sec and stopped. Could the capacitor need replacing?
