When you laid the fridge on its side oil got on the head of the compressor and into the refrigeration system. the compressor is a vapour pump if you started it with oil still on the head of the compressor it most likely destroyed the compressors reed valves and piston.

Why does the unit beep after it is pluged in.


Most new window units have a ground fault circuit. More than likely, the outlet you are using is Not grounded or the Neutral and Hot side are reversed. They make a tester you can purchase at most home improvement stores. I would go buy one and test the outlet. You could have other outlets with the same problem. You have to use a 3 wire outlet. Large side of outlet=neutral, small side of outlet=hot, round or arched hole=earth ground.

The fan on my Carrier central air conditioner a/c model 38ER036300 does not move when the compressor kicks on. The unit will heat up and then will start. It also will start when I give it a small push. The...


Hello YES the blades have to move freely.If it has oil ports look on the side of the motor for a YELLOW plastic plug/cap there are 2 one at the top & one at the bottom.Pry them off/loosen with a small screwdriver & squirt #20 oil in the holes.3 in one oil will work also.If there are no plugs it is factory sealed & it is new motor time.

I have a thermal cool portable air cond. package unit. Mod. # mac 12, it runs but will only cool to 71/70 degrees. theres no shreder valves to check press. should i put one in on the suction side, and see...


Hi; Please dont take this the wrong way but never open a closed freon system unless You suspect a leak and can find it..Is the unit trying to cool a space too large for the BTUs of cooling avaliable. Is the suction line sweating back to the compressor. Are the evaporator and condensing coils clean. How old is the unit. Is there still a warranty on the unit. There is a device called a pressure temperature chart. In other words if You can determine the temp. at the suction line withen 6 inches from the compressor You can cross reference the freon pressure.
Also rember the output cooling temp. will only be 15 degrees cooler than the temp. inside the space being cooled . So if its 80 degrees in the space being cooled the unit will give about 65 degree air.

If the return is pulling the proper amount of air in, and the supply side is not producing the proper amount of air, then the evaporator coil is clogged.

It could be from Ice due to freezing up, or a dirty coil, or both.

Examine the inlet side of the coil to see it's condition. Defrost/clean as needed. Then turn the unit back on and check the temperature drop. (the temp of the air going into the coil, vs the air coming out of the coil.)
It should be between 15 to 20 degreesF.
Also check the refridgerant charge. (this requires a CFC certification in the US.)

Dirty coils and low refridgerant will cause the coils to freeze up.

If the unit is low on refridgerant, it will need to be recharged.

Just installed a used 2.5ton h/p it was blowing 62deg air, now its blowing 85deg air, the low side is sweating, what now?


Sounds like you have a possible obstruction in the lines and/or do not have the proper amount of refridgerant in the system. Check the site glass to see if you see air bubbles, if so, it could be that more freon is needed, if no bubbles and no liquid refridgerant is seen, you likely have an obstruction in the system.

It is recommended that the system be subjected to a vaccum before recharging with refridgerant, to make sure that the system is clean and clear of any obstructions. It is also best to install a new refridgerant filter with any installation to help mitigate contamination.

If you have a proper set of gauges and the specs for the system, a competent HVAC tech should be able to determine the problem and a probable solution.

Water spilled from window air conditioner while moving it


it is only condinsation, no need to be worried, it most likely works like your refridgerator, the condinsation gathers in a pan, then evaperation takes care of the water naturally. Nothing out of the ordinary.

I want to move the outside unit of our split system aircon.


It will definitely escape. In fact, allowing that gas into the atmosphere is kind of illegal, as well as really expensive. An HVAC repairer has the equipment to remove the gas while keeping it trapped, do any plumbing needed to move the unit to it's new location, and then recharge the unit with the same freon (though you might need to add some to account for the additional run of pipe). Also, the electrical box will probably need to be moved.
