Re: aircondition

You will need an OHM meter to check the relay and compressor. Make sure all power is off. The most common types of compressor winding failures are open, grounded, or shorted. You have to know how to read a meter. If you don't find someone who can. Or call an HVAC tech, a small businessperson and ask if you can pay him/her to "confirm" a problem. Tell him or her to check your start components. This approach gives you an insiders edge and also shows that you know or are learning something about your product....

Re: aircondition

The clicking you hear is the compressor relay trying to start the copressor.. you have a bad relay or a lock up compressor. if you can jump the relay or replace it then you will know which one is bad... hope this helped.

My coleman Mach Rv air conditioner with built in heat strip keeps tripping it's internal circuit breaker when running for any length of time. Just replaced heat strip with new one experienced same issue. I...

There should be an overload protection device in series with the low voltage wiring(t-stat wiring) Is it resting on the heat strip or too close to it? It is a saftey device to shut off the heat strips if the fan quits or a fire in the heat strip section. check that or by pass it, if it stays running then ur thermal protector is bad, couple bucks at the parts house.

We just turned on our central air conditioner last night. today the temp of the house was 80 degrees. someone in the household placed the tempature on 70 degrees cool on auto. we have not felt any air...

Did you hear the indoor unit running (the fan blowing)? If so, there's a good chance that either the filter is plugged or more likely, the evaporator coil is iced up and preventing any air from flowing into the dwelling.

This points to a refrigeration issue with the unit - possibly a leak or low refrigerant charge.

You should turn the A/C off and leave it off for a day. Then just turn the indoor unit fan on by selecting the fan "on" setting on your thermostat. If you feel air coming out of the vents, then the evaporator coil was probably frozen.

If you are not an HVAC tech, it's time to call for professional help.

Droplets of water are coming from the vents and it's making a noise like something is rattling around inside. What could this be?

The problem with this unit is that the evaporator, or the part of the air conditioner that 'creates' the colder air is not draining correctly. Pertaining to a window unit, it needs to be installed correctly with the correct amount of tilt toward outside, to allow the evaporator condensation water to drain. You may also want to check to make sure there aren't any plugged drain holes in the air conditioner housing.

The rattling you hear is most likely the blower fan spinning against the held water inside the unit.

I hope this helps! :)

I have a York Central airconditioning system in my house. This morning I put on the airconditioning at 19. The house temperature reads 25. It has not gone down at all from 25. I put my foot over the ducks...

Make sure that the outdoor unit is on. If it is on, then check to hear if both the big black compressor is running as well as the fan. If both are running then feel the fat copper pipe that comes out of the unit. If it is not cold and sweaty then your system is probably very low on refrigerant. If the line shows evidence of icing, it could still be a little low. Although icing can be the result of 4or 5 other problems as well.
