SOURCE: condenser coil fan not runningon GE pds22scrrss

The fan can rotates freely even if there's no power to it(fan probably burn out).You can check if power is going to the fan motor by folowing the two wires fron the motor picking up power from the compresor connections under a black plastic cover on the side of the compresor.If you nave power going to the fan its needs to be replaced.

Frost on coils on condensers

i will assume you are talking about evaporator --a few reasons restricted air flow coils dirty -air filter clogging --fan not working or operating properly --low on freon ---turn fan on and with a spray bottle mix water and a little liquid soap and spray coils the fan will pull mixture thru coils keep spraying do not wipe the coils you can get injured and also damage coils an replace with new filter if still freezes over will need to check freon level and fan operation

Air flow direction for the compressor motor, should it be pulling are away from the compressor, or pushing air into the compressor?

Air should be blowing onto the compressor and then directed across the condenser coils and the heat blows out the bottom front panel of the ref.

There is no "heater valve" of a fluid type. Heat is directed into the vehicle through the HVAC box under the dashboard. In this box are the heater core and the A/C condenser. During the spring and fall, when only air flow is needed, you set the blower on and the temperature control to cold. Without the A/C running there is no refrigerant passing thru the condenser, and the cabin air passes across this coil to no effect. In the summer, when the A/C is on this same setup has the cabin air passing over the condenser coil, extracting heat from the air and sending the resultant cooler air to the vents. In the winter, the temperature control is set to hot, the air is redirected inside the box thru the heater core, which has hot water from the engine constantly passing through it. To regulate the amount of heat, you adjust the temperature control to something between hot and cold. This results is some air passing through the heater core and being heated, and some bypassing the core through the A/C condenser, which is not providing cooling at the time. The redirection of air is done through what is referred to as a "blend door" . Ther is at least two of these in the HVAC box - one to direct air between the A/C condenser coil and the heater core, and one to direct the air between the floor vents, the dash vents, and the defroster vents. These doors, in older cars were controlled by wire cable linkages. Today's cards use vacuum motors to position them.

I have to push the red reset button about once a day on my outside unit. What can cause this?

Depends on what the reset button is for.

If it is a low pressure cut off then you are probably low on refrigerant or have a dirty inside evaporator coil or bad airflow across the evaporator coil.

If it is a high pressure cutoff then you have a bad condenser fan motor, dirty condenser coil or it is over charged with refrigerant.

If it is an electrical overload reset button then the unit is pulling too many amps or over heating due to refrigerant loss and/or dirty condenser coil.

I'd wash out the condenser coil, ensure that the condenser fan is running, make sure you have a clean filter inside and that the blower is operating properly. If those things are OK and it still pops that reset then call a service tech to look it over for you.

We have had our 12000 BTU sharp ac for about 10 years now. The unit seems to be working but is not cooling the room that well. How do I know if its the compressor or it just needs coolant? If it isn't...

Remove the unit and clean the evaporator coils and the condenser coils with a good coil cleaner chemical.
Oil the fan motor bearings.
Replace the capacitor.

Coleman 3 ton ac unit should condenser fan push or pull air

condenser fans typically 'pull' air (from around the unit) across the 'hot condenser coil' - and discharges it away from the unit.

Do I need to clean coils in haier hwro6xc7 air conditioner

You always need to keep both coils clean on your AC.

The evaporator coil (where room air is drawn in and through a filter) - is easy to keep clean - 'just keep the filter changed on a regular basis and you will probably never need to actually clean the evaporator coil. Occasionaly you might need to brush the coil with a brush or something - but this is not a big concern.

The condenser coil (where hot air blows from) is even 'easier,' for you don't have to mess with a filter, just keep the coil clean. You can occasionally pull the unit (when needed) and wash this coil with a water hose. In reality this coil will not get very dirty very fast - although it will (over time) acquire some dirt/dust, but as I say - it is pretty easy to keep clean. Note: Condensing units (split systems) that sit in a yard will get much dirtier much faster than window/thru the wall units such as yours, but you still have to keep a eye on the coil.

A good rule of thumb - is to change the filter (in front of the evaporator coil) - monthly.

As for the condenser coil (where hot air blows from) you can easy see it and just need to keep it clean, with no set (usually) time to do so.

good luck!

start simple. be sure that the condenser coil is clean. you should be able to see all the way thru the fins. verify that the evap fans and the condenser fans run. make sure nothing blocks air flow inside the conditioned space and around the condenser coil and compressor.
Let me know if we need to go further.

I think I need to clean the coils of my Admiral AD17M4 but cannot find the coils (not in back and not underneath). Where are they located?

Good day,
Many Admirals used a box type condenser found in the rear of he machine. There is a fan pulling air thru it if that's the style. Cannot be vacuumed properly. Need a shop vac to blow the dirt out.
As well, some had the condenser moulded to the inside of the cabinet walls and cannot be seen or need cleaned.
