Where does the capillary bulb go?

My son and I took a small Maytag window unit apart to see why the fan wouldn't run. It was very dirty. We cleaned it up and cleaned the capacitor contacts and now it works great. Except we did not notice where the capillary bulb was mounted. Any Help?span.jajahWrapper { font-size:1em; color:#B11196; text-decoration:underline; } a.jajahLink { color:#000000; text-decoration:none; } span.jajahInLink:hover { background-color:#B11196; }

    Thanks skeeter140, but that did not solve the problem. Indeed we looked for mounting clips but couldn't find any nor any evidence where it had been mounted. We left it hanging in the air next to a 3-4" diameter coil of the small tubing running from the compressor to the condensing coil.span.jajahWrapper { font-size:1em; color:#B11196; text-decoration:underline; } a.jajahLink { color:#000000; text-decoration:none; } span.jajahInLink:hover { background-color:#B11196; }

Are you talking about t-stat sensing bulb? just to let you know it is connected to the thermostat on the front panel gauged 1 to 10 looks like a bulb that just mounts to the front of the coil that is inside the house. Should have like little clips that sink into the coils and clips onto the copper tube. Then put the filter on top of that then the front cover. I really hope that is what you are talking about. ken

Hello my ac unit is not blkowing out cool air.

On a window unit you need to take that filter out and clean it every two weeks. They are small filters so they clog up quickly.
If the evaporator coil under the filter is real dirty clean that with a vacuum being careful not to collapse the fins. Running the fan at a higher speed will also help.
Don't run the unit if the outside temperature is below 70F, this is a common icing cause.
If none of these things help you may have a refrigerant leak or the capillary tubes may be partially plugged starving the coil. Only a tech can fix these things.
If the unit is small it will probably be cheaper to just replace it. Service is not cheap.

The unit has power, all controls work. The machine "turns on" when the humidity level exceeds the level set. However, the fan or wheel or whatever it's called does not turn. I took apart the unit and...

I have the exact same problem. I've isolated it to the thermal fuse for the fan motor. This can be confirmed by jumping the black wire to the blue wire coming from the fan motor while the unit is running. Only problem I have is I haven't been able to locate the fuse yet.

Have a KDF 60Wf 655 will not turn on. Green light comes on then red light with 7 blinks any suggestions? Took bulb out but the bulb light never lit and the bulb doesn't look blown.

Wether it looks blown or not replace it and dont put oil from your fingers on the bulb. Also clean the cooling fans for the bulb and projector (which may mean taking the back off and taking apart projector). Dirt in the projector fans can cause a fault not allowing for the unit to turn on. All the cooling work ins conjunction with a good bulb.

Whirlpool upright freezer- model EEV151N is running but not keeping things frozen. Making a whirring noise louder than usual. At least 24 years old.

Possibly has a restricted capillary tube. Possibly has a extremely dirty condenser coil. Possibly has a bad compressor which will run but has bad valves so it doesnt actually pump the refrigerant. If the condenser coil has a fan (unlikely) it may be dead and causing the unit to run much higher pressures than normal which could cause this. Only thing you really could do would be clean the condenser coil. Anything else would need to be repaired by an Refrigeration Mechanic.

Dometic duo-therm air conditioner freezing up

Make sure that you are not running the unit on low fan speed. In the warmer months of the year, this will often cause the unit to freeze up due to the lack of air flow through the evaporator. If you are running on high and it is still freezing, then you possibly have a freon leak in the system. The brisk airs are notorious for the capillary tubes in the upper unit rubbing together and developing a small leak. The problem is usually where the two small tubes enter the evaporator housing. Remove the cover and pull the two small lines apart, damage should be apparent if there is any. If not, you may have developed a leak elsewhere and need to have someone check out the system.

Hope this helps,

Exhaust fan running slow

sounds like the compressor is turning off cause of high pressure. check the coil that the exhaust hose connects to, if dirty clean it. if the fan is not blowing enough air threw the coil the unit will build up high side pressure and cut out, but will turn back on when pressure drops. if that dont help, maybe the fan motor is bad or needs taken apart and oiled.

yoiu are correct that the unit sounds like the compressor is low on charge and or has a clogged capillary tube. Whenever the condenser coils get rael dirty theres a chance that the capillary tubes will clog up with oil. That is the raeson that I personally do not like the refrigerant r-134a and prefer another one called hotshot or r-414b.
