Remove the front and filter(s). Clean them better yet replace them. In the back (outside) there is a coil be sure it is clean. If this does not help contact your local refrigeration ac service.

How to cool big home with small air conditioner(s)


A lot of people have only one or two rooms that can take an air conditioner in the window. Often times, the air conditioner is also rated at a cooling power that would make you believe that there is no way that it can to cool the whole house/apartment. You can crank it to the max to try to cool as much as possible, but then this makes one room too cold and the others still stay too hot. You can try blasting the cool air down a hallway with a fan on maximum speed, but that only works so well. And, it's noisy, too. Well, I have two 260 sqr ft rated room air conditioners and I am cooling 2000 sqr feet of house to a comfortable 72 degrees in all rooms and it's been 95 outside all day. How to do it?

The trick is setting up your home to take advantage of laminar air flow. Set your air conditioner to say 68 degrees and start it in the middle of the morning before it feels hot outside. Put the AC deflectors pointing downward and towards the door. Put fans in the doorways pointing out of the rooms that have the AC. Point them level to the floor (not up) and put a fan to one side near the end of long hallways. Set the fans on the lowest power setting (not high). If the hallway branches out into a bigger room, put a fan in the room that is blowing across at a right angle to the entry, pointing the air flow parallel to the wall. This will circulate the cool air around the room. Keep the fans on low and pointed parallel to the floor, not up!

What you have created is a re-circulating air flow system, much like the North Atlantic Current that moderates the temperatures of Europe. You can check this by taking a tissue paper and holding it up to the top of the doorway. The air flow should be pushing the tissue away from the room without the AC and toward the room with the AC. This happens because the warmest air will be toward the ceiling and you want that warm air to make its way across the ceilings and back to the room with the AC, so that it can be cooled again. The cooled air from the AC will sink to the floor and the fans will gently push the air out of the room with the AC. It will stay low and travel along the floor in the opposite direction and into the warmer rooms. If you crank your fans up, you will create turbulent flow and that will not cool your house as efficiently as will laminar flow. Monitor the outside temperature and when it gets cooler outside by a few degrees, turn the AC to fan for about 10 minutes to eek out the last of the cooling. Then open the windows for the night to take advantage of the free cooling that nature provides. That's it! Enjoy the summer!

Not cooling 110 sq ft room


The smallest retail AC unit will cool down a 110 sqft room if...
1. It is installed in a way as to dump heat outside... 2. There is actually cool air coming out of the AC (it is working)... 3. The windows and doors are tightly closed... 4. There are no major drafty leak issues (i.e. hole in a wall)... 5. You're not adding substantial heat energy into the room (such as having 10 sweaty fat men eating food while watching Super Bowl on a 56" LCD TV)... 6. The room has at least minimum insulation (the walls are not just plywood)... Seriously, if HEAT is leaving the room by way of the AC, the room temperature HAS to decrease, unless HEAT is being added back into the room in some way. This is basically the 1st law of thermodynamics.

AC was cooling fine. Now, won't cool room even though cool air comes out. Exhaust hose is extremely hot.


Check filter, if you have a 5000BTU unit (small) and it is extremely hot, then it wont work great for a big room. BTU is the rate of what the AC will put out. 5000 BTU is good for a small single room. 10,000 will cool a bigger room and 18,000 btu is meant to cool a home.

Split system getting cold at first then just not cooling the room


Split Air Conditioners are not meant to run constantly. so check this first . you may have a faulty component i.e. compressor, condenser, evaporator, or evap fan. Depending on your technician you may have gotten ripped off. You need to find out if he checked the system for refrigerant (gas) leaks. A good way to tell if your ac is leaking is feel the low and high side copper pipe in between the inside and outside units.
the smaller pipe (high side) should be hot be carefull maybe touch it with an ice cube. The Large pipe should be cold but not iced over.
if there is ice on any component you should call a qualified tech. you probably have a leak. you should also clean your air filters which are right above the vents. I am a certified AC mechanic and i have seen this problem. in Iraq because of ambient temperatures being high the systems take alot of abuse and we dont fix them because repair costs exceed replacement costs alot of the time. good luck.

My LWHD1200FR AC Unit is not cooling during the


The unit may not be big enough. From the model number I am thinking you a/c is a 12000 btu. Which is usally enough for a large room. However if you have an open floor plan or a really large room you may need a bigger or second unit.

Room temperature reads 95-99 degrees F, not cooling the room


one hose is the heated condensing air and one hose is the intake air. if this unit is not working correctly and u just purchased it take it back. if the landlord will replace it tell them. do not call a service tech to check this unit out if u know 4 sure the temp is set right and it continues to blow hot and the exhaust hose blows outside and the unit is set to cool you are money ahead to replace it. hopefully a landlord or recent purchase can bail you, you can find these units at home depot lowes and get them 4 about 400 dollars. hopefully it's covered somehow by warranty or landlord but the cost for checkout and service will exceed the cost for replacement. have you tried to unplug the unit leave it unplugged and try again. have u cleaned the filter. have you noticed ice anywhere. maybe a light that tells you the drain is plugged i don't wan't to get you're hopes down when you are burning up but check these things and let me know if u see any abnormalities. do you leave the unit running in hopes that you will come home and it works? check for ice is there air blowing constantly? if u dont get air flow you could have a fan thats out or its iced up. let me know.

My frigidaire window AC is not cooling anymore


Does it get cold? You can try cleaning the fins-both inside and outside, with windex. Smoling & cooking will create a sticky deposit that will make dist that gets through the filter stick and it won't cool properly.
If it doesn.t get cold any more, try replacing the starting capacitor. About $5. If that doesn't take care of it, just replace the unit. They are cheap enough these days, that you can replace a unit with a more energy efficient unit for the same cost or less as a repair would cost.

Goldstar Room Air Conditioner problem...


It sounds to me like you have a weak run capacitor on the compressor. This will cause the compressor to be able to run for a short period, but it will be overworking itself to compensate for the weak capacitor. It overheats, shuts off to protect itself, cools down and restarts again. If you have it set to 10 I don't think you would be comfortable in the room if the thermostat was satisfying and turning the unit off. An a/c tech can replace the weak capacitor, but the cost of repair will probably rival that of a new unit.
