Question about Air Conditioners

Sta-rite well pump. My pipes froze and now I have a leak. When I plugged in the pump to check which pipe was leaking it cuts on and off every 2-4 seconds. If fixing the leak does not fix this what should I look for?

Is the pump above ground or in the well ?
If its above ground, sounds like you have air in the pump which will not let it operate properly, if you fix the leak, you will have manually fill the pump with water from the access hole on top of the pump, its takes time and patients to do this as I used to live in Northern MN, and was on a well too, once in a while I would have to prime the pump do to water loss somewhere in the system, if it is a pump that is down inside the well, you will have to call your local well driller and inquire as to the cost of diagnostics and repair, hope this was helpful, thanks for your Question,

How do I patch a leak on my trucks a/c alluminum pipe

Its a high pressure system, you will have to replace the pipe so the R134 won't leak out after refilling.

Our water pipe outside the house (that controls the water for the undergound drip lines) must have froze one night and now sprays water :( how do i fix it??

Purchase a plastic joiner that fit the diameter of the drip line.
Cut the drip line where it is leaking and remove the damaged section then join the drip line together with the joiner you have purchased.

Water should come out of the back of a wind unit when it is humid out, usually a drain hole. If water is leaking inside from a window unit, check that the outside drail hole is not clogged or maybe it is not tilted downward enough outside (Usually a very slight tilt down toward the outside to help the water drasin out the back outside). Also, if you have excess water forming, you may need to clean the coil. For central air units water should be drippng outside the home via a pipe or tubing and if the drain tube or pipe is clogged with scum that forms inside the pipe water will back up and overflow in the house near the heater/air conditioning unit. Also, some units have a pump to pump the water out and it may not be working.

Two ways to clear out the pipe. One way is to take a wet/dry shop vac and **** from the outside drain pipe. The second way is a bit messier. Take an air hose (from a compressor) and purge the air up the drain a few times. Works like a dream!

Central AC leakage

Sounds like the drain pipe isn't large enough or not set at enough down angle to handle the water on high humidity days,check it out

Carrier heat pump has ice on outside pipe leading to unit. Air not cold inside. Any suggestions???

this is sign of low freon. you have a leak and ice is clogging the interior coils so little or no aire can pass thru it. Cut it off and find the leak.

no easy fix . your water heater should be fine most likely its up to temp ,thats why its not lighting its main flame . the frozen pipe is another story you need to get the heat up in the house open any cuppord doors that have pipes in them like under a sink ( to let heat from the room get it there ) leave a faucet on hot and wait . at some point you will unfreeze . but you migh end up with a broken pipe so keep your eye out for a water leak . good luck
