It is not freezing because it's cold outside,It is freezing due to a problem.
It needs to thawed before it will work,

1st:Check or change the filter if need be.
2nd:Make sure none of the vents are blocked off(especially the return)
3rd:The only way to thaw it when temps are low outside,without being out in the weather is to turn on the air conditioner,You will need to use other means to heat your home until it thaws.

and Please if you use the stove for heating,don't fall asleep with it on.

Fridge not freezing meats


I was writing a big note here before then hit the wrong button, it was just a bunch of jargon anyway. Yes it is the condenser fan motor causing your problems. Doesn't cool the refrigerant properly than nothing works. I would change the fan before it causes any damage to the compressor.

Central air stops blowing cold after about 4 hours. The air blows at 63 degrees when it's cold.


Sounds like your evaporator coil is freezing up. This is a sign that you have a restricted air flow over the evaporator or you're low on freon. The 63 degree tempurature is indicitive of low freon. You should call in an a/c expert to check the freon level and while he's there have him clean the evaporator coil.

Its 15 degrees outside and my amana unit is off. every so often it kicks on by itself and runs for about 10 seconds then shuts off again. while it is running the control panel flashes FP, what is it trying...


I was wondering the same thing about our unit until I found the specs online and read that it has freeze protection. When the temp goes below 40 degrees, the fan comes on to prevent damage to the unit.

central air or window unit? central systems use a low/high pressure limit switches which self reset when pressures are nominal. suction about 50-60, high pressures around 300.

Maytag freezer don't freeze food or make ice


There could be several things causing the frig to be cold but not cold enough. First check thermostat control and air control. Both should be set in the middle setting for normal operation.Next check to see if evaporater fan is running in freezer. It should be running whenever compressor runs and circulates cold air inside frig as well as freezer. Next check if condensor fan motor is running. It blows air over condensor coils to remove heat. Last ,check condensor itself for dirty coils. If they are matted up with hair dust,etc. it will cause poor cooling. you can give thorough cleaning with vacuum cleaner. Hope this helps

Home central air conditioning unit


check the filter, make sure it's not plugged. Make sure all the vents are open. Are the lines freezing up (have ice on them?) Could be a lot of things but if it is not blowing much air then you may have a motor problem or dirty filter. If the unit is freezing up then probably have a leak and will need to be found, fixed and recharged.
