My A/C blowing air, but it is not cool. It has started freezing up. We just replaced the air filters and since then it is freezing up. We even gently cleaned the a/c coils before replacing the filters. Is there something else we can clean before we call a repairman? We have an Intertherm Central Air Unit.


Hello, sounds like it is either a low charge or lack of airflow, what type of filter are you using? sometimes those filters that claim to be super effecient will actually cut down on your airflow and cause the ac to freeze up.

Simple way to pay less bill with big comfort.
Tips for it: To get proper cold air set temp 23 degree and mode"cool". To get heat set temp 30 degree and mode in "Heat" Clean indoor and out door periodically ( Once in 4 months) Clean Air filter every fortnightly. Avoid frequent opening of the door where it's air conditioned. Avoid keep closing the doors even a/c is switch off. It helps to cool the room next times in short minutes. Use proper breaker, wiring for your air conditioner plug points. Make sure your elect meter is working properly.Check your Elect meter with 1000watts bulb for one hour. It should consume one unit only. Hope, it's helpful.

Carrier model #58rav070-08 flashing error code #31


I would check the back of the unit to see if any debris has accumulated then check for the filter and make sure it is clean. Look at the front of the a/c where the filter sits and see if the coil behind the filter is dirty. If so the unit needes to be cleaned. This can be done by purchasing a can of coil cleaner at the hardware store and follow the directions to clean the coil. What the system is saying is there is a blockage somewhere causing this code. Not being serviced in 4 years would be the possible cause because of the amount of debris in the air over that 4 year period. Good luck on the repair hope this helped you.

Sharp 10000 BTU 38db portable air conditioner blows cold air for 2 minutes then blows warm air for 5 minutes then turns off for 20 minutes then repeats this process. How can I fix this problem to blowing only cold air? The filter is clean, water is drained, good ventilation.


sounds like the unit has a low charge and is cutting out on a low press safety. This is more then likey not something you can fit yourself most of this units are not really serviceable with out cutting the lines open and adding a valve. If the unit is still somewhat new you can try for a warranty repair, if not you are better off to replace it.

wont run after I cleaned it


On the model 30200 there is a safety interlock switch actuated by a plastic tab (about 4" down from the top of the front filter cover) on the right side. Assuming that all you did was take off the front cover and clean or replace the filter(s) and the unit was working previously, this should be your answer. If in taking off the cover the switch actuation tab was broken off, you could (carefully) wedge a tab into the slot where the switch resides. This defeats the safety aspect of certifying that the unit isn't running when you remove the cover. The safe work-around is to unplug the unit before you open it for service.
