Question about Carrier Air Conditioners
We have a Carrier evaporative cooler 29CB series installed in 1999. I have been unable to find the manual.
Can you advise how many BTUs it is and what the air flow is.
it could be any of three things.
1. its a variable speed motor and will not blow hard unless you have an extreme cooling need (5 degrees or more away from set point)
2. You have collapsed duct work.
3. Dirty evaporator coil, or filters preventing proper air flow

SOURCE: i have an evaporative cooler:
Hi and welcome to FixYa. The principle of operation of an evaporative cooler is to provide cooler air via evaporation. The evaporation process is achieved by water being pumped over very porous pads with air is drawn through the pads. Most all evaporative coolers unless connected with a centralized heat / cool system only have an on / off & cool function. "On" is fan only (air circulation while using outside air being drawn into the home) and "cool" turns on the pump to pump water over the pads for evaporative cooling. Hopefully I did not confuse you with my answer.
Happy New Year and thanks for choosing FixYa,

I would bet that the problem lies in what you said about the pad. It needs to be well-soaked for the evaporative effect of the unit to do its job.
You give no model, but if you disassemble the unit (only the top panel) at the water distribution tube and expose it you can see what's going on. Water flow will be minimal.
The tube disconnects from the water supply tube at one end.
Disconnect it and, carefully since it's plastic, clear debris out of the distributor.
If it's like mine, it will have a fair amount of scale built-up in it. Once clear, re-assemble and start the unit.
