Yes, just count how many pins per inch and replace with the same number of pins per inch.

I have a 4 ton Ruud HVAC system that is two years old. It is a 13 SEER unit. It is tilted slightly to the front of the evaporator to aid in draining the condensate. Two days ago, my daughter came home after being gone for a week. My wood floors are buckled and she has a large amount of mold in her bathroom cabinets. I had my HVAC man go by and he told me that no condensate was coming out of the evap unit. I asked him if it was blowing too hard and possibly blowing the water down the duct. He sai

To whom it may conern, I live in a 2 bedroom/ 1 bath 760 sq. ft apartment with a 2 Ton A/C unit. We had trouble with our a/c unit and the maintence (which is A/C licensed) replaced it with a 410A unit. He only replaced the outside unit and it did not want to cool. The manufacturer of the unit said that it already came with the right amount of refrigerant. So he cleaned the coil inside and it didn't work. Then the manufacurer of the unit recommended to change the coil which he did and i

We installed a 4 ton downflow coleman air handler with evap coil Model number 1854s2m we did not change out the outside unit. the outside unit is a 13 year old 3 1/2 ton intertherm condenser the system is only generating a 10 degree delta T. My question is, this coil came with a factory TXV I am trying to find out is this a 10 seer or 13 seer coil is it compatable with the outside unit.


You have a missmatched system, for it to work try removing the orfice on the high side txv it is not allowing the evaperator coil to fill with refrigerant properly coleman and intertherm dont like each other since they control a large market in the ... Air Conditioners

I have a Carrier 4 ton unit model number 661CJ048-A which is charged with R-22 capacity is 9,25lbs. It has developed a leak at the evaporator coil. It has rust on the coils which from what I understand means the leak is there. Now currently it has only 3.25 lbs of R-22 left in it. I want to replaced the coil, but until I do I want to replace the R22 with R-134A, and be able to use the AC unit, until I can afford to puchase the coil, which I found one for $720 from a company in Florida. Do I need


First your system is 22 and 134A is a auto AC refrigerant. I have never seen it used in residential ac. I have been in AC business for 45 years. The new refrigerant is 410A or Puron. But you can not use it. Your outside unit is set up for 22. Mix 134 ... Whirlwind FH-778 Air Conditioner

Is it ok to replace outside unit of central air and heat and not the inside air handler ? The upstairs A/C( over 10 yrs old) is not keeping up with South Texas heat. The temp upstairs climbs to 84-86 degrees by the afternoon and takes 4 or more hours after dark to cool back down. I have cleaned the entire unit outside- no help. I have replaced the downstairs unit 2 yrs. ago and it works fine. I don't want to replace the upstairs air handler if I don't have to---much more cost.


I'm assuming you have had a competent Air Conditioning contractor look your unit over.if you trust your A/C contractor, why don't you work with them towards an answer? I would get an air flow and sizing analysis, a full equipment service/performance ... Air Conditioners

AC Out. Two year old house. Goodman A/C, two units one for upstairs. Cleaned coils of both outside unit, replaced filters, re-set breakers. Upstairs is cooling. Downstairs unit is running outside, not circulating air inside (inside temp 87). Vents inside are cool to touch, no air. Outside unit fan is pulling, but air exhaust is cool. Compressor ? Should air be circulating even if compressor not functioning. Is there anything in attic exchange that would affect downstairs circulation. Thanks.


Assuming that the 2 systems are isolated, that there isn't any cross over between the systems...It is normal for an air conditioner system, from window unit to central, to be able to circulate the air, even if not cooling. This is known ... Air Conditioners

I have a Carrier 58DX080CC Forced air furnace that is leaking water onto the floor, but otherwise works perfectly. A service guy told me I need a new Coil, but it probably wouldn't pay to repair it, and that I should replace it. His quote to replace was about $6K. I found the part, Z7-58DX080CC-91CW at United parts supply for $890. The unit was manufactured in 1988 and is 90% efficient. What should I do? Buy the part and hire somebody to fix it? Buy a new one?

Model ck42-1a compressor won't come on. I replaced the intake filter about a month ago. It was a pleated filter and was real caked when I replaced this month. Can that cause the compressor to go out? I have two units and the pipe coming in to the house is cold on the good unit but not on the bad. Could that be anything but the compressor? Low freon or a-coil freezing in the house?


The fact the filter was very dirty and the door partly open allowing non filtered air to enter the system leads me to a possible dirty evaporative coil on the furnace. That can cause poor airflow and iced up coil reducing airflow even more. In the lo ... Goodman CKL42AR42 Air Conditioner

I have a 11 year old, 2.5 ton trane package unit at my home. the tech added refrig 3 weeks ago because the unit was freezing up. coils still freezing up. air coming through vents only getting down to 70f. tech came back last friday. trane said there must be something (trash) in lines. tech evacuated system, purged lines and recharged. air from vent only gets down to 74f now. compressor seems to be working fine. i just thawed coils with water. they were frozen completely.


After the tech added refrigerant, did the coil freeze up after he left, or was it a day or more before it started freezing again and are you running the unit on high cool? You either have a leak, which would usually take some time to leak out enough ... Air Conditioners

My parents had a frigidaire eletric heat pump installed 2 years ago. almost right away a soured water smell came out of the vents. service tech sprayed the coils and installed a black light. did not help. service tech said frigidaire did have this problem with some of its units. so the unit was replaced. new unit done fine for about 6 months. now the smell has came back mainly when the cooling is on. any suggestions. i dont believe it is the unit. they had a gas it pump before.


I feel that the gas lis leaking from a very minute hole which gets enlarged when the unit is cooling (it gets hot and enlarges). And it could be leaking from anywhere. A quick temporary remedy is to seal the possible leaking points with super glue or ... Frigidaire Air Conditioners

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 would like to get only the air handler for my R22 outside condensing unit. My question is if in the future can I use this same 3.5 ton air handler with a new 410 condensing unit once my outside unit needs to be replaced. In other words can a Goodman air handler be used firs

I've done what you are describing - "however" you could void the warranty on the new condenser - by not having 'matching' coils (inside/outside). I would do some serious checking with whoever you are buying the new condenser from. \015\012\01 ... Air Conditioners
