Re: water coming out of the vent

Assuming this is a window unit, make sure it is level. If so, the drain tube between inside & outside may be plugged. This is often visible with the front panel off, & the tube can be cleared with a piece of coathanger wire. The tube is usually only a couple of inches long. Check for damage to the water tray under the cooling coil as well.

Frigidaire AC window unit, model fam185r2a (18,500 BTU) only cools for a few minutes before it cycles off and just fan blows. Then a few min later cool air cycles back on. Is this a thermostat issue?

The window units normally have a sensor thats attached to the front of the indoor coil. This controls the thermostat. I usually pull this sensor away from the coil because it stops cooling before the room is cool. It is attached to the cold coil so it senses the coil temp, not the room temp. You can normally see it when you remove the air filter. Don't break it! It may be a wire or small copper tube

A/C unit does not blow cold air

Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire air conditioner, model# FAA055P7A1, is not blowing cold air. I also see that you have had it in storage and it has not been run for 5 seasons. Please note that the "Cool " circuit has an automatic 3 minute time delayed start if the unit is turned off and on quickly. This prevents overheating of the compressor and possible circuit breaker tripping. The fan will continue to run during this time.

First, make sure you have cleaned the filter by following these instructions:

• Push the vent handle to the Vent Closed position (where applicable).
• Open the front panel.
• Grasp the filter by the center and pull up and out.
• Wash the filter using liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Rinse filter thoroughly. Gently shake excess water from the filter. Be sure filter is thoroughly dry before replacing.
• Or, instead of washing you may vacuum the filter clean.

Secondly, make sure the temperature sensing element, located behind the air filter, is not touching a cold coil. If it is straighten it away from the coil.

Lastly, try resetting your air conditioner to a lower temperature.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I bought a DeLonghi PACC120E portable a/c with no manual. The unit does not cool, and it dumps water. How do I get it to blow cool air?

I would drain the water out of the machine via the plug on the back once the unit is drained turn on, wait a few minutes. If compressor does not come on or comes on and does not cool, you need service beyond diy.

My air conditioner starts blowing like a fan before my apartment is cooled off, why does it kick off and on like this?

When you first turn it on the fan runs and after a few minutes the outside unit comes on, once the outside unit comes on it take time for it to cool the coils which cool the house, And a/c does not really cool the air,It removes the heat that is in the air.

Unit cools for a few minutes then stops cooling. Even fan stops blowing air but the unit remains 'on'

unit may be short of gas. will run for a few mins before low pressure switch turns the compressor off. you will need to get an engineer to check gas pressure

My A/C evaporator is freezing up, and wont cool the house below 85 degree

Check your filter and make sure you have one in place and it is clean. This is either a low inside airflow problem or system is low on freon. If you have strong air flow from vents and filter is been kept clean then low freon is most likely. Run system in on position with cooling off to make sure ice is melted. When water stops draining. then restart system . If it starts frosting up at outside unit shortly after start up it most likely is air flow. If you don't have at least 15 degree drop from registers in a few minutes and indoor humidity is not too high inside and airflow decreases and air gets colder just before it freezes up then it is low freon.

Wont no water to empty or drain

Either the unit is really dirty or it is low on refrigerant. A unit tha is low on refrigerant will start off cold and withing a few minutes, start warming up. If you aren't seeing any water its because of one or both causes listed.

Air handler only blows air for 3-5 minutes before shut off & not cycling frequently

Sounds like it could be a very weak run capacitor on the blower motor. Run capacitors are sized specifically to the needs of the motor. When a run cap gets weak, the motor trys to compensate for it by drawing more power. More power draw = more heat in the motor, then the motor will overheat and shut off to protect itself. When the motor cools off it will automatically restart and run until it overheats again. Keep in mind that I am a technician that normally diagnoses equipment in a hands on manner. There are many practices and concepts that transcend all air conditioning systems but it is a constantly evolving industry. I live in south eastern WA and I don't see Amana units except as window units. It is possible to have something else causing this problem (faulty thermostat, failing thermal relay(if used), problem with electronic controls(if used)) there are a lot of potential variables
