Check the condensing unit (the outdoor section). There are two motors in this unit, a fan and a compressor. If both are not running then you may have a blown fuse or circuit breaker. Fuses are sometimes located in the disconnect box next to the condensor. The circuit breaker is located in your main breaker box. If only one motor is running or neither is running but there are no blown fuses or breakers then you probably have a bad start capacitor. This capacitor should be replaced by a someone knowledgeable in residential 220VAC equipment.

Our AC keeps cutting out. It runs for a few minutes then stops. have to switch off and restart. Any idea why? Have emptied water and cleaned filter recently


Look for:
  1. the ac needs air flow thru the indoor and outdoor radiators
  2. the outdoor radiator coil should get warm/hot and produce warm air.
  3. indoor radiator coil needs should get cold and produce cold air.
The ac needs the fan motor(s) working and compressor running and pumping. Compressor skinny copper line hot and thick line cold.

Why can't I lower my honeywell 8500 below 67 on cool?


With a two story house you have to be aware that cold air flows downwards so any cold air coming from an ac unit will flow downstairs( normally down the stairway) so unless you can close off the down stairs then the up stairs unit will be cooling downstairs as well. Ac units have a thermostat located in the air intake and it cools until the cold air has risen to that point. In effect the space above the ac unit will be hotter than the floor. Knowing how they work ,you can see that the upstairs unit will never reach the set temperature because the cold air is continually heating from the house and will never get to the top thermostat.
So your solutions are
1-- fit controls that restrict the cold air from leaving the upper floor (Doors)
2--don't run the upper ac unit unless you are living up there (waste of money
)3 place an ac in each upper room and keep the room door closed

No start up


No its not. Bad valves are caused by dirty filers,dirty coils that cause liquid refrigerant to slug compressor and knockout the valves. Rus

Do i have to add water to the uniot to make it


No. Water is not what makes an AC cold. It is a refrigerant gas called Freon. Water is only a by-product of an AC system caused by condensation. If your AC is not blowing cold air the system might be either low on Freon or completely empty due to a leak. It should be checked out by a certified AC specialist.

Ac not blowing cold after outside temp reaches 98 degrees


Sounds like you have dirty condenser coils. Remove the upper shroud and check the condenser for clean. Take a water hose and gently spray out the coils paying special attention not to bend the coils over with too much pressure. This will allow more air movement through the coils and give you better cooling efficiency.

Hope this helps,

Call your local service company cause you may have either dirty coils or a loss of refrigerant.
