Question about Premier Heating & Cooling

I made a big boo boo

My window a/c unit was freezing up, while evaluating (which i now know was it needed tilting) I realized it needed a serious cleaning. well while in the process of putting it back together, a wrong screw was put in the wrong place and I have pierced one of the copper coils on the side of the aluminum coil. I have $0 to purchase a new unit and I live in the very hot state of arizona. i now have freon leaking and im frustrated! what can i do?

FYI . This is not a do it yourself repair (brazing line, adding charging valve and new filter drier, evacuating system, charging system with new refrigerant) and the repair would most likely cost more than a new window air conditioner. Please don't bother rating this.

My LG Air Conditioner started having problems this weekend. It is ony 3 years old and it keeps freezing and blowing out hot air


Since you don't give a model number, I will have to assume that it is a window unit, if not this probably won't apply. When a unit freezes up - as in ice on the evaporator fins it is usually either a low freon condition or the fan is not moving air accross the unit.

With the supper high temps that we are experiencing, many units that are undersized for the area that it is trying to cool are having serious problems. One client called us out to respond to a similar problem, so we charged the unit to factory specs. A few days later she called and said that the unit wasn't cooling properly, so we went back out. Since it was a window unit that was in the bedroom, it was a small unit. She was leaving her bedroom door open with fans to draw the cold air out to the rest of the house, which the unit was not sized to do.

I have a window air conditioner and it has been doing good for 2 months. Now lately drops of water are flying out of the air vents, what gives?


This tells me you have possibly 2 problems..
1. you need the unit to tilt to the back (outside) to prevent the condensate from coming inside.
2. the unit might be iced up. meaning it is not cycling off -often enough. this is a window unit so you might be trying to cool to big a space with it on real humid days. i would advice you close off unused rooms as well.. But my money is on 1.

When my green egg gets to temp over 600 the lid becomes lose and falls off when you lift it. I've already broke one. Why is this


It sounds like a problem with the hinge springs, rather than the lid. One will usually break before you realize it has. Then the second one goes, before you realize it. And it's usually when you have the Egg heated to a high temperature. You should also check the steel band around the egg, that is part of the hinge system to make sure it has not been overtightened or is to loose.

The folks at Big Green Egg take this sort of thing seriously and are devoted to their customers. You should also contact them about this issue.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

While watching a dvd, the computer freezes then makes me have to restart windows in a safe mode. this does not happen all the time, just after using the software for over an hour


If the computer freezes this may be a sign of bad memory in the unit. Powerr DVD would not be the blame for the computer freeze. also what could be the issue would be a video card failing to render the video. I would suggest you have this computer evaluated,, You could also try to recover the computer back to its factory settings if that does not work you know you got a hard ware issue.

Leaks water into room


Try tilting the a/c to the back. In most cases the manfacture will seguest that the unit be tilted to the back slightely (no more that 20 degrees). That is what I would try. If that dont fix it let me know and we will try together and solve this problem. Good luck

Air conditioner leaking


Hi, There are no pipes, just passage ways on a window unit. It probably needs cleaned. Window units naturally create water in the evaporator area. The water is suppose to drain to the back of the unit through passage ways to the condensing area where the slinger ring on the condenser fan blade slings it into the condenser coil making it more efficient. There is usually a drain hole to drain excess water from the back of the unit. Any dirt or algae in the pathway of this water or the wrong tilt will cause water to build up and drip or blow out the front. Anything touching the evaporator coil allowing water to run down the obstacle into the wrong area will cause the same thing. reduced air flow will cause the evap to freeze which could also cause a water problem. Since the tilt is right and it doesn't seem to be freezing, Maybe a temporary increase in tilt and a dropper of bleach at the base of the evaporator would do it. This will kill the algae and may unblock the water flow. NOTE: It may also cause stains on a carpet or floor if the bleach water drips onto it. If you want to pull it out and clean it, most units can be pulled out of the housing and sprayed with a water hose but you need to be careful not to get water in the electrical parts of the unit. They can be covered with plastic or foil. Make sure you unplug the unit before trying to remove it. You may have to remove some screws to remove it from the housing. Hope this has helped. kstfas

Hi, If this is a new unit I would check the filter first and make sure it is clean. Also check and make sure it is slightly tilted to the outside. If its an older unit it probably needs cleaned. Window units naturally create water in the evaporator area. The water is suppose to drain to the back of the unit to the condensing area where the slinger ring on the condenser fan blade slings it into the condenser coil making it more efficient. There is usually a drain hole to drain excess water from the back of the unit. Any dirt in the pathway of this water or the wrong tilt will cause water to build up and drip or blow out the front.
