Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

My Dometic rooftop rv ac runs for approximately 5 minutes. During this time the fan blows cold air. However, after 5 or so minutes, the unit stops completely except for a humming sound. I turned off the thermostat for a few minutes and turned it back on. The same thing happens repeatedly. Do you have any suggestions?

Hi I have a Lennox heat and air conditioner roof top on my unit. What's happening is,the heat turns on for a about 10 minutes then shuts off, the only way to turn it back on is to turn off the thermostat, then turn it back on, but will keep doing the same. Oh and one other thing, the filter warning is showing on the thermostat, could it be as simple as changing the filters? Any suggestions anyone?


You are right, you must change the filters, since it isno longer working normally. May this help you. ... Air Conditioners

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

RV ac fan runs backwards (blows out air on top of RV.) Runs correctly sometimes but after it satisfies and clicks off when it kicks back on, it runs backwards. The only thing that will turn it back around is to turn off unit and wait for around 30 minutes and turn back on.

Would like to fix myself since this will be the 3rd time to have it i

I have a goodman gsc13 ac unit about 4 year old. When the temp gets around 90 or above outside the fan on the unit starts but the compressor does not. I had service check it out but that day they were here it was in the 80's and it worked fine. I replace the thermostat to make sure that wasn't the problem. Interesting if I turn the unit off at the thermostat and wait 15 minutes and turn it back on it will run fine. But the next time it tries to turn on automaitcally it will just be the fan o

A/c in front did not show read out on the thermostat this am. I thought it had been turned off. I checked the switch, turned it off and then back on and the numbers etc. came up but then it went blank again. It did not work until 4:05 pm and then it came on for less than 1/2 minute and then stopped. The back a/c is working today but they seem to coordinate their on and off times. Do they have some sort of conection?

I can turn the system off for a few minutes, then turn it back on and everything will ignite and run till the next time. Is there a sensor not working just right because the ignitor will ignite?


Yes, there is a flame sensor that will tell the gas valve to open, thus igniting the burners. When you say the fan is running is it the blower fan or the little exhaust fan connected to the vent. Because the blower fan shoul ... Air Conditioners

Hello, When I set my AC unit to "Heat" and turn it on, the air will come out warm, then after a few hours the air starts to come out cool. To make it warm again I need to set the thermostat to Off position for a few minutes then turn it back to On position then the air comes out warm again. Any idea what could be going on here? thank you!


It sounds like you have a heat pump. When you first turn on the system the heat strips will come on and produce warm heat (referred to as supplemental heat strips), as temperatures rise the heat strips will turn off and the "A" coil will just exchang ... Air Conditioners

My Duo-Therm RV roof-top a/c unit continues to come on and off when the system is turned off. No air blows, just the compressor runs for about a minute then shuts off. About 5 minutes later, it comes back on and does the same thing. Again, let me stress, the system is in the OFF mode.

My thermostat is set on 72....but shows it is 76 in the house. I shut it off yesterday in case it was freezing up. 2 hours later, turned it back on and it cooled great the rest of the evening. I woke up at 3:00 am this morning and was doing the same thing. I shut it off for several hours, now has cool air blowing, but not as cool as it should and still shows 76. Cool flashing on the thermostat.


It sounds as thought the coils on the unit need to be cleaned, make sure it is draining, if it still freezes up after cleaning coils and checking for draining then the unit has a leak and needs to fixed/charged. Hope this helps tim ... Air Conditioners

The heat pump is not working properly. i think the problem is in the switch mechanism. when the heat is on and the thermostat is turned up it blows cold air. sometimes the compressor turns on and off. if you turn the other switch to the off position, then turn the thermostat up then turn it back to heat. it will blow hot air. if you then turn the thermostat down, wait till it turns off, then turn it back up, it will blow room temp air and sometimes the compressor will turn on.
