Amana AC not working blower will come on but compressor will not any ideas?

compressor may be leaking. and you are losing Freon, Have a HVAC tech come and check compressor for leaks.That is probably why the compressor is not working. Also make sure the filter is not dirty and plugged up, that would overheat the compressor, shutting it down.

How do i recharge freon for me Friedrich KM18J30A-3 window unit?

only a certified HVAC technician has the license to carry and use the freon used in home A/C units. it's not like the car units we can do ourselves.

Will the a\c compresser work if no freon

The answer is no. The unit is protected by a switch to prevent it from not starting with no or low Freon. Freon contains lubricating oil. So --- No freon , no lubrication, compressor will seize up.
Kind of a good thing. Saves the compressor if the unit runs out of Freon.

Suncutter A/C needs freon. I have added freon to my vehicle system myself. Are home units set up the same way as automobile systems?

To a point yes they are. But home units require a different type of freon, the oils are different and you can cause major damage using the wrong freon or using the same gauges that where used to fill a car, also the residential or commercial units use a very specific amount of freon and if you are to high or to low you can cause damage. You should not be low on freon and it is recommended that you get a qualified service technician out to look at your unit and run dye through it to find the leak. If this is a newer system you are running very high PSI throughout your system and without the proper equipment you can cause damage to yourself or the unit. I hope that this kind of answers your question

Can freon be added to an under the counter unit?

Freon can be added to any unit, but you e going to have to take the unit out to exposed the back where the component are located. Why do you think that you need freon. Unless the line was punctured. it unlikely that you would need to add freon, Is it not getting/keeping cold. Problem might lie elsewhere like in the thermostat. Hope this helps.

My Amanda wall unit keeps freezing up. Cleaned filter and coils, please advise. Thanks, Gilbert

If a AC unit starts to freeze up, then that is a sure sign that it is low on freon. A wall unit is harder to add freon to since those units generally do not have Shrader valves to purge or add freon. It is sort of like your refridgerator in that the freon is sealed in the factory and to add , a technician has to cut the evaporator tube and add a valve, then add freon, pinch the tube off and seal it once the correct pressure is adjusted.

I would say that somehow your unit has developed a leak, and will get worse.

How do i get the freeon in the ac its not getting cold

Air Conditioners don't 'Use' freon per se. A common fallacy is the thinking that if "It's not getting cold, then it needs freon." If your unit lost freon, it has a leak and adding freon will only be a very short term fix.

If you're certain that you need freon, you'll have to take the unit to a certified HVAC technician. EPA regulations make it nearly impossible for the average handyman to service A/C units, since the freon must be handled in a very specific way with equipment not generally available to the average owner, was well as R-12 freon gas which can be bought only by licensed HVAC technicians.

However, there are many other problems that are far more likely to be the cause of no cooling than loss of freon. It could be something as simple as dirty condenser coils (you'd be surprised how common it is that a simple cleaning of these coils will 'fix' a non-working window A/C), to a defective thermostat switch, to other defective switches/controls.

Unless it's a very obvious leak, I always suspect a loss of freon LAST on my list of possible cause of non-cooling in these units.

I have a Tane 2 ton condenser unit that has high head pressure(290) and high suction pressure(150). The unit is properly sized but no cooling. Unit has been installed probably 4-5 years and has not been...

Has anyone added some freon? The unit has way too much freon inside it. You need someone to reclaim the freon and weigh in the right amount of freon. If you run the unit the way it is will cause some very serious damage. Let me know ken
