Question about Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner
We have a carrier (brand) ac unit in our office that is shutting off and on by it's self. It has been doing this for two weeks or so, we have put in a work order but no one has come yet so we are trying to see if there is anything we can do ourselves. We were not able to find the manual on-line. We are in Iraq so it is hot and our ac is very helpful. If you can help us discover the solution that would be very appreciated. The model number is 38qg24h.
I ran across a unit that had a very similar problem, everytime I would go to look at the unit it would work fine, but later it would stop working. What I found was the door on the evaporator (inside unit) was loose and not mating up well with the door switch. If the door or switch has vibrated loose the problem will be off and on. This may be even more of a possibility if the unit has been serviced recently...

I am thinking that you could have a low refrigerant level. there is a low pressure switch that is being triggered and as the compressor cuts off, the pressure will go up and run again the compressor.
immediate solution, have it charge to the proper level for the mean time but it would go back to the same thing as the level goes low again.
permanent solution, find the leak, repair, and charge again fully with refrigerant
refrigrant wont get low without a leak.
tnx for using fixya,
