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

Why does my ac freeze up

Hello, air conditioners will freeze either due to low airflow.....such as dirty filter, dirty evaporator coil, weak or not running blower motor. Also, a low refrigerant charge can cause the unit to freeze up.

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.

If practical - the best way to clean a unit like you're describing would be by using 'air pressure,' to blow the dust out of the coils, squirrel cage, and in and around the fan motor and compressor.

Then take a water hose and wash both coils being real careful to "not" get water in the fan motor. Note: the compressor is sealed so you don't have to worry about it, but try to be careful and keep water out of the controls/wires (you might even use plastic to protect them).

Also, be sure you install a 'clean/new' air filter in the unit itself. This filter goes in front of the evaporator coil which is the coil that gets cold. The other coil - the condenser coil (the one that gets hot) does not need a filter.

good luck!

How do i top up the gas (R22) LG gold 12000btu

If it is not freezing up freon is ok. Make sure compressor is running.If humidity in house is high It will not feel as cold as it should until air drys out some. Do not try to run just after house heats up as it may never catch up. LEAVE ON a set stat to cycle. Window units have no customer acess fittings and would need to be installed. Then you need gauges to read pressures. this is not auto refrigerant. 90% of the time the outside coil is dirty and needs washed out. fan blows back through coil so build up is on fan side you can't see. You may be able wash with hose from side you can see with a 30 degree down angle going from top to bottom side to side. careful to not bend fins Also do not spray water into fan motor. Also some times coil is too dirty to clean without taking apart.

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.

Ice on the coil fins of my Window AC unit......

set your unit to fan mode only, to thaw the ice, after the ice melts, look at your evaporator coil, see if its dirty, if its dirty, then you might just need a good cleaning. if the coil is clean, look at your thermostat setting. it should not be all the way cold. the compressor would run continously and it would freeze the coil. third, the refrigerant system could be partially clogged up or it lacks refrigerant. these problems initiate freezing of the coil.
