Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I have Carrier Comfort Zone 2 on a York system. Everything has worked fine. After recent lightning strike, the controller is not responding correctly. It flashes E1 alternating with the current temp. No matter what the programming, it seems to start cooling when the house gets to 84-85 degrees inside and then stays on continually until it hits the programmed 76-77. How do I test to see if zone panel or thermostats need replacing?

Contactor not engaging to start condenser unit . When setting the thermnostat, i hear the click from the unit starting inside the house. Fans start and air starts blowing inside the house, but the condenser unit never starts. I tryed pushing the contactor by hand and then everything works find (cool house) as long as i keep the contactor pushed manually. Seems alike the 24 V (coil) bobine in the contactor is not been energize. When I tried the 24 V outside with a 24 V surce it worked fine. Thank


I would replace the contactor if you are getting 24 volts to the contactor and it isn't engaging therefore the magneto on the contactor is out and the contactor will need replacement. If you don't have 24 volts at the contactor then the transformer ... Air Conditioners

Just bought a new 3 ton 16 seer Trane for a 1700 square foot house, but it is not cooling properly. I can't get the unit to drop below 75 degrees. I had the unit on for 2 ½ hours starting at 8:00am and it dropped from 76 degrees to 75 degrees. The installer failed to change the AC amps in the circuit breaker to 45. Currently the amps I have now is 36. Does that make any difference. It is 86 degrees outside. Any advice to my cooling problem. ? Thanks

The outdoor unit has failed in some way. This is probably not the thermostats fault. You can check the breaker for the outdoor unit by turning it off and then back on. If this does not work, the problem is most commonly one of the following issues. A ... Hunter Air Conditioners

We had a professional repair our broken coil in the air handler and while he installed it the house smelled of something burning and we had a film of smoke through out the house. The professional said it was from the copper being fused together but the smell was strong in the am. The a/c started to cool after he left but stopped at 78 degrees and then went back up to 81 within 12 hours. I went in the attack and it looks like where the copper goes into the handler the rubber inside the handler lo

Penguin a/c The original Penguin A/C on my 1999 Airstream failed in August 2006, and the roof portion was replaced by an Airstream dealer. The replacement would not work with the existing thermostat, which was replaced by a thermostat designed to handle multiple zones, although I have only one zone. The combination operated irratically; it was often necessary to set the demand to 50 degrees to get the unit to start on a hot day. Once the unit was cool, any adjustment to a moderate temperature (

I installed a 2400 BTU Senville mini split ac unit about 6 months ago and until now, it worked great. Tonight I noticed my room getting hot and looked up at the wall unit and it was flashing "f5" I think? I turned it off and on and it seemed to return to normal with 65 degrees displayed yet when the room stayed hot, I went out and looked and the compressor was not working. I flipped the breaker and still nothing, went inside and turned it on and off again, still no compressor, no cooling. Thanks

Have new central h/a--installed last year. Problem--during the hottest part of the day (85+ degrees), it is about 80 inside with the air going. Windows are shut, blinds barely open in lr (closed in rest of the house). People have checked and told me I'd have to live with it, that central h/a doesn't get that cool. I don't believe that.

Hello, I have a carrier 58sta in the townhouse were renting. A few days after moving in the furnace was getting louder and louder each time we run the ac.

This is about a 15 YEAR OLD Trane XE1000 30,000 BTU A/C unit. The A/C was not working, but right after I called to have someone come fix it, it started working again all by itself. When the unit was not working (for about 18 hours). The house got up to about 80 degrees with the thermostat set on 70. When the HVAC tech got here (next day), he told me the compressor is shot because the thermal limit switch inside the compressor is overheating. The area where the thermal switch is getting warm, but

We have our air conditioner set at 75 degrees in our house, however it only stays that way in the morning and after midnight. I know that it is very hot where we live, but this is the first year that we have had it get up to 81 degrees in our house. I could understand, if it went up a couple of degrees, but we can't see to get it to stay cool.

We had a new AC unit & the inside unit replaced last night, it cooled fine over night. This morning it started making a "locust" sound every few seconds from the outside part & a gurgling sound from the inside part. It was 96 degrees today & although it was set for 80 degrees, it hovered at 85-86 all day. It's now cooled down outside to 89. It's still 86 inside. Do you have a suggestion as to what the cause is? Could it be over charged? Under charged?

I have a Rheem CLassic 10 Seer Heat Pump Model Number is RPKA-035JAZ I'm not familiar with certain terminology, but basically, it seems as though the unit is not cooling down the house anymore.

The temperature is on 65 degrees but not change has been made. It's not hot in the house but it certainly isn't cool and it feels as the there is less air p
