Weather King 10AJA6001AH Air Conditioner with bad compressor

Gentle Men:

My Weatherking 10AJA6001AH which is five years old has stopped cooling the house 2 years a go. They it is the compressor. Should I try to fix the
compressor ? If so, how much should I be expecting to spend on the Compressor and the Labor. Or just go and get new Air conditioner.

Thanks

If it is five years old it is either right in or out of warranty a service tech can determine this through the serial number. If not the unit is only a little bit more to replace than the compressor. A replacement compressor is only warrantied for one year verses a unit replacement with five years on the compressor and one year parts and labor.

I think compressor needs to be replaced, ac unit not pumping any cold hair in the house. I have a weatherking a/c model 10AJA3001, how much eventually it would take to replace it?


You're looking at around $800-$1000 to replace the compressor and if the condensing unit has some years on it (say 12 or more) it would probably be cost-effective to think about a new one, except for the fact you'd probably have to change the evaporative (inside) coil - to match the new condensing (outside) unit because chances are - your old unit is R-22 and you're going to have to put in a condensing unit that will be using a different refrigerant.
All that being said - I would try to find out the reason your AC is not cooling and hope it is a minor problem that can be easily repaired.

No cooling at all


I have been out of the air conditioner service sector for a while. I wanted you to know up front that I may be out of date. When running service I replaced many compressors for a fraction of the cost of a new unit. Many of these customers had been told the same thing. Service companies make allot more on a new unit than they do repairing an old one. Many don't have anyone capable of replacing a compressor. Get more than one opinion and if you replace the whole unit get more than one bid. Make sure all of the bids are for the same tonnage, or btu unit. Some lower bids are for a smaller unit that won't keep up after it has a little wear or the coils get a little dirty. If your unit is more than ten years old you should consider a new one. If not, if you can find a honest company it should be worth replacing the compressor. Replacement compressors, if installed by a certified tech, have at least a five year warranty.

I have a weatherking 13AJA60A01 Ac unit and the condensor fan is not moving, I can hear a sound assuming electricity goes through the system but the condensor fan not working. The unit is just 1 year old...


Weatherking has five year parts on there equipment. You may just have a breaker kicked or tripped float switch. Check for stopped up drain Shop vac **** out stoppage from the outside drain line for unit. Check breaker. The sound you here maybe the contactor. It energizes from the tsat inside. If the contactor energizes. You have a high voltage problem. Your warranty covers aprts not labor. So call a Rheem ,Ruud or Weatherking dealer. Any of these dealers can handle warranty parts. Rusty Feadback please.

When turning on central air, our main electrical breaker is tripping. This is a brand new home barely over 1 year old. Should the AC have a warranty not covered by a builders contract??


Builders give a one year warranty but your air conditioner has five years on all parts. Anything outside the unit is not covered under the ac warranty. Breakers,stopped up drain and dirty coils.

2 TON WEATHERKING HEAT PUMP VIBRATION AND NOISE.


Your friend is correct. Installing a sump or p-trap in the suction line will probably help. The oil may be leaving the compressor but can't get back.

Weather King Air conditioner


The inside part is the bit that gets cold, which is where the condensation forms (if using it to cool). there should be a drain. Unfortunately Weather King do not appear to support their products online except to dealers. If you can open the unit up enough to where you can see the space below the coils on the inside part (usually just behind where the air comes out, but not always), you should be able to see the drain - if you can then follow where it goes, then let us know what you have if you can't figure out how to unblock it. If you can post back a couple of photos of the unit and installation I might have a better idea of what to tell you to check. Unplug anything from the power before you start opening things up. If you need help finding your local dealer, please ask and I will look. Hope this helps :)
