The coil is very exposed to weather, air and moist. Better cover the coil a foil. Clean it first with metal cleaner then cover it.

How old is the AC?: if the oxide is not too much just remove it with cleaner, if pipes are rottening, then you will need to replace lines.

I doubt that it is bad copper. It could be outgassing from the crematorium. you can get a coil cleaner spray, but that doesn't explain what caused it in the first place.

I need help finding out whats wrong with my centrex ctar35gw/cx splitsystem airconditioning system i have three of these and when i turn them on the screen comes up with E4 and wont work


Hi, the code E-4 = compressor failure do to one of its overloads. High pressure in system due to maybe a dirty coil, you can try and wash, compressors are going off on these overloads do to lack of service. Try cleaning condenser coils. It makes since that you have more then one that are doing this. Anyway, this is what the code means, and if cleaning the coils on the units does not get them back on line, you will need to have a certified tech check these units out internally to find what part of the units have your compressors locked out.

The aircondition is on and blowing hot air,the fan


Have you checked your filters to make sure they are not dirty? Is the Insulated suction line starting to get
covered in ice? Is the indoore coil Iced up?

If yes, turn furnace off, try and change the filters,leave
unit off for awhile while it unthaws and try it a few hours later.

Airconditioning will not come on


And if what jumptrout51 said does not work, remove the thermostat to expose the wiring and place a jumper between (R) and (Y).

Forced air heater lites but blower run a few minutes and shuts down. Service board blinks seven times. don't have manual


Watch The Unit's Ignition Process See If The Unit Is Getting Fire Most Likely It Needs A New Thermostat. The Thermostat If Bad Will Cause The Unit To Turn On Ignite But Will Not Detect The Heat From The Flame And Then Shut Off The Gas To Protect The Home From Carbon Dioxide.
If The Unit Fails To Light At All Check The Igniter.
I Hope This Helps,
Sincerely,
