You say the fan spins and it is pushing air, but not cold enough. Which fan is spinning, the one in the attic? If the fan is not spinning in the compressor unit outside, that is why the air is not cold....the compressor is not running. I had that problem recently and the problem was bugs. They got into the relay in the compressor unit, where one got between the relay contact points so that the points failed to make a connection. If your compressor is not running and you are competent to check the relay, take off the cover to that part of the unit and use a non-conductive probe, like a wooden rod, and push on the contact points. The air conditioner unit in the attic has to be running for this to work, if the relay is the problem. I was lucky, and that was it. After a couple of months the bugs returned, so this time I sprinkled some powered insecticide inside the relay compartment. Weird, huh? There will be a switch box beside the compressor unit so that you can turn off the power if you need to. It affects the compressor only, so the attic fan will continue running. It has to be on to do the procedure I described. If your attic unit fan is working, but not the compressor, you could try hitting the compressor box with a rubber hammer. Sometimes that jars bad relay points so that they make contact. You will be very lucky if any of this works, but for me it saved the expense and delay of a service call.

I have a Rheem 10 SEER/4 ton AC unit that just had the compressor replaced. As soon as that was fixed my Rheem water heater began to run hot, another words the temperature pressure release valve keeps releasing hot water every 24-48 hours out the drain pipe, the water heater thermostats were cahnged but a day later their is hot water still coming out the TPR drain pipe? Is the AC pushing too much hot air into the water heater and what is the fix? If the plumber changes out the TPR valve I'm afraid it will continue to release hot water if there is a hot water pressure buildup, what is causing this, the plumber says it is not connected to the new AC compressor??
