SOURCE: Cool air when running; warm air when compressor is off.

It sounds as if warm outside air is being drawn back into the room when the unit is not actively cooling. Portable units depend on room air to carry the heat outside, & therefore will not work properly if the room is too airtight. Provide a makeup air passage by leaving the door slightly open, & see if this helps. Use a room thermometer to see if your desired temperature is being reached. Note that if the wind is strong & coming from the wrong direction, it may not be possible to prevent warm air drawback.

SOURCE: AC does not cool to the temp as desired

Does the thermostat have a mercury bulb in it, if it does you need to level the thermostat.
When you take the cover off, on the sub base there should be a couple of marks or grooves
One on each side of thermostat, you need to take a level and loosen the screws on the sub base
And with the level completely level align those two marks with the level.
If you don’t have a mercury bulb, then your thermostat may need the heat anticipator adjusted, some you can adjust the bi-metal coil, but I haven’t done that, so I couldn‘t tell you how to do it, or you just have a bad thermostat.

SOURCE: air conditioner will trip breaker when trying to cycle back on

The compressor motor , once warm is grounding out due to wear and is going bad.Have the compressor replace while it is still clean is cheeper and easier that doing it after a burn out,which  will eventually happen,if the compressor is tripping the brreaker as I suspect..

SOURCE: air conditioner compressor will not shut off.

Remove the cover on the outside unit that covers the circuit board and contactor and capacitor. Then start the unit and set the thermostat so that the unit cuts off. Then go back to the outside unit and see if the contactor is still pulled in and the unit is running. Next open the breaker and see if the contactor drops out. If it doesn't your contactor could be stuck. Try to free it or replace it. If not the problem could be in the circuit board.

Why won't the compressor won't kick off


sounds to me like you have to change your " room and coil " sensors..they are thermistors that work together to communicate with the pcb and tell the compressor when to turn off. if you can use a multimeter, check the ohmic value(s) they supposed to be between 4k - 10k. with the meter attached warm the thermistors by rubbing them between your fingers and the ohmic values should change.the room sensor can be found on the evaporator coil when you remove the face cover you will see it, the coil sensor will be found on either right or left side of the evaporator inside a piece of tubing. sometimes there is only a room sensor...hope this helps

My a/c does not stop even it reaches its desired room temperature


Look for a 'power saver' option in the controls. It should turn the fan off when it is not cooling or heating.

Download this illustration and then using a good multimeter start basic troubleshooting.


All residential window air conditioners have a cooling system made up of four primary components, a compressor, an evaporator fan, a control or switch, capacitor.When the thermostat is calling for a colder room temperature the compressor is energized. It is normally very quiet. The evaporator is always located on the front of the air conditioner. It also has silver fins. Be sure it is clean. Use a foaming type cleaner and rinse with plain water. Because the evaporator is absorbing heat, it is very cold to the touch. The temperature drop causes any humidity in the air to collect on the evaporator - sometimes called sweat. There is a fan inside the air conditioner that circulates the air for the evaporator and condenser coils. The circulating fan and compressor are running simultaneously. The fan motor has two fan blades attached to it on either end. The fan blade on the inside part of the unit continually draws room air over the evaporator coils, which are cold. The fan blade on the outside part of the unit continually draws fresh outside air over the condenser coils, which are warm. Because the evaporator coils are cold, they cause moisture in the room to collect on them, much like a cup of ice water on a warm, humid day. When the amount of moisture increases, it begins to drip down off of the coils into the bottom pan of the air conditioner.
If the compressor fails to start or the fan you may need to replace the capacitor.
You may need a hard start kit.

Thermostat control The thermostat on a window air conditioner works by sensing the air temperature entering the air conditioner. As the air entering the unit reaches the set temperature it will cause the compressor to turn off. The blower may continue to run depending on the selection chosen on the control panel. Digital thermostats work on a similar principle but display a more precise temperature.
Test for continuity with the multimeter between the two terminals . Warm you should read continuity (contacts closed). If not change it.
Selector switches The air conditioner selector switches allow the user to choose the fan speed. The compressor always runs at the same speed regardless of the settings. If low cool is chosen, for example, the fan runs at a slower speed but the compressor still offers the same cooling capacity. There are other switches to control louver operation and other features on some units.

Can i set it to a temperature that will allow it to turn on and off automatically


Any temperature you set it at, the AC unit will turn ON and OFF automatically. Once the set temperature has been reached and held for 5 minutes, the unit turns OFF, but the fan may continue to blow for a few minutes. When the room temperature rises above the set level, it will automatically turn ON again and continue to run, until the set temperature is reached and it turns OFF.

I really hope this has helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Thermostat position?


The thermostat control alows you to set it at whatever your desired room temperature is. It will keep the compressor on until it reaches your desired setting and then turn the compressor off.

Need to know if indoor unit fan shuts off at desired temperature


Check your operating instructions and see if indoor fan unit has an "auto" feature that allows the fan to run only when the outdoor unit is running. Allowing the indoor fan to run constantly will provide for better air circulation and less stagnation but will use more energy.

Lg split indoor fan runs non stop


Hello Hamid,
The unit is designed to run the indoor fanmotors continuously when in cooling mode on both indoor units (evaporators). The reason is that this circulates the air and the temperature thermistor or sensor is able to sense return air temperature and in turn start or stop the outdoor unit and compressor as required according to the setpoint temperature. The reason for either unit not reaching setpoint temperature can be a couple of reasons. A) Incorrect design - the unit may be too small for the application. You can calculate this roughly at 650BTU per square meter of room in a relatively warm ambient climate. Or secondly B) The outdoor unit has leaked and is short of refrigerant. You can check this when the outdoor unit is running by feeling the thicker copper tube on the right hand side of the unit. This should be cool to cold. If no temperature difference is felt, it is short of refrigerant. Hope this helps you. Goodbye
