The most likely problem is a dirty filter or evap coil. (the coil behind the filter)

The thermostat is extremely unlikely. (nigh to impossible)
Same with a "condensor sensor"

It could be low refridgerant.

it could be a malfunctioning blower motor.

Chances are its a dirty filter/coil.

My unit was leaking water how do I get it off the wall to have a look at it I have taken the three screws out at the bottom in the vent but the top is still stuck

Darren, My Carrier A/C was doing this, and when I got the technician out he checked the evaporator drain in the wall mounted unit,took the cover off and fiddled around then charged $90.00 and left.we got them to come back when it was still leaking but they still could not rectify the problem. Feeling ripped off I had a close look at the unit myself and seen that water droplets were forming on the condenser where the air blows out into our kitchen dining-room and then realised that my wife used the frying pan underneath where it was mounted before our kitchen reno and thought that maybe grease vapor from this process had effected the transfer of heat from air to condenser so I got the Ajax spray & wipe and sprayed the condenser coil - have not had the problem since ! Keep cooking well clear of A/C condensers!

What is the maximum length of pipe for wall mounted

I think what you ask is how far the refrigeration piping can be run from the condensing unit outside to the blower inside. The answer is with the manufacturer. The vertical run or horizontal run will matter and the size of the air conditioner will also matter. Wish I could be more specific but hope this helped and good luck.

Sometimes get a loud screeching noise from the condenser fan motor. Also seems to be loudr than usual. Motor part no. is:S070. Can a "do it yourself" guy replace the unit?

If this is wall/window unit, you can do it but it can be tricky. the fan in window units usually has 2
shafts on either side , it drives fan for both the condenser and evaporator. You basically have to pull the top off, loosen set screw on both blades, remove some screws to move back condenser coil(gently, don't kink tubing) similar process on evap side. Then mount new fan motor, wire it in put fan blades back on in proper position, reassemble unit, test run on bench.

Hi, I've a BARD wall mount heater package, when the day is cold the circuit breaker juumps every 3-5 minutes; I check the element and is in good conditions; what could be the problem?

May be drwing to many amps even if it appears to look good by sight. Does the unit have a fan blower? Make sure the filter if any is clean and you have good air flow.

My Samsung is mounted in the wall of my office. Once I turn the air conditioner off,it starts to leak water for several minutes. Any way to stop this? Frank

When the unit is on, go on the back side of the wall where the unit is
mounted. If this is a split system find the condensate hose and make sure it is not plugged and is draining.

If this is a window unit again go in the backside of the wall and see if it
is dripping there. If it is not, take the unit out of the wall, remove the top
and wash underneath the coils. Install the unit so it slants to the back.

Water dripping from air con use

If the unit is mounted on an outside wall check the condensate drain that comes out with the line-set to the outdoor unit. If the pipping goes up into the attic than you have a small condensate pump that may have failed. The float in the pump may have stuck in the down position not allowing the pump to come on.

Lighting in the neighborhood. Opener blinks twice and repeats every few seconds. Remotes and wired on wall do not cause anything to happen. Sensors are dark. Lamps on opener do not work but lamps are good....

If you are talking about the LED on the back of the motor unit that is blinking twice, that is the code for shorted sensors. I would try disconnecting the sensor at the motor unit and then trying your remotes or wall control. The door will not close but the motor should at least run unless you have more extensive damage. If the motor runs I would replace the sensors. If the unit is still dead I would replace it.

Unit not coming on. air isn't getting cold

First check the breakers for the condensing unit (outside unit) and the disconect outside by the unit (could be a breaker ,a pull off/on switch or fuses)If its ok , you should have 220 ,240 volts to the unit contactor (you'll see it after removing the cover on the condensing unit).When the termostat is in the cold position and the temperature its set is lower than the one inside the house the contactor should be pulled in and give power to the compresor and the fan.But if the termostat is in the cooldest set and the blower inside the house works and the contactor in the condensing unit is not pull in the problem is in the termostat or in the low voltage wire.
