Depends on where the coil is leaking. Also the age of the unit. If it is just a small leak a serviceman can repair it. You have to look at how much it will cost to repair, And the cost of new unit.. The new unit will be a 13 seer and may not match the inside coil. . Also some Companies are selling 10 year parts and labor warranties with new units. Look at the leak on your coil to see what caused the leak. Most of the time it a rubbed line or drier leaking. If you have to cut away fins. Buy another condensing unit. When you cut away the fins you loose heat conductivity. Higher head pressure could cause damage to unit. Rusty

I have a Carrier Weathermaker model #38tdb060300 A/C system. How many tons is that? It is 11 yrs old, capacitor exploded and compressor is blown. Needing to replace.

Looks like a 5 ton unit. However, you might be better off finding a R-22 condensing unit to replace the entire outside unit. Reason being, if you just replace the compressor, you get a one year warranty. If you replace the whole outside unit, you get a 5 year warranty. You can replace the outside unit with any manufacturer, as long as it is the same tonnage and type (heat pump/air conditioner/single stage/ 2 stage ...).

It would be cheaper to replace the whole condenser than to try to replace the coil and fan. May not be able to find the outside condenser coil. If it is r22 system I would replace the condenser and evaporator coil with an r410a system. this is the type of Freon that is used because in a few years r22 will be gone.

Not heating

Do a continuity test on the heater coil. No continuity, it's broke replace it. If it over heated and the coil is ok then the thermal protection fuse blew. Both the fuse and the thermister need to be replaced & check the vent where it exits to the outside. It may be clogged and the cause of the problem in the first place. Very common cause. If not addressed it will break down again. See youtube for videos on how to test the thermal fuse & thermister. Just search "dryer repair". Review a few. Some are better than others.

Poor cooling

cold air is made by refrigeration in the air conditioner. If the unit is low on the freon charge then you have a poor exchange and poor cooling. I have gotten the units to work better by putting a little water on the outside exchange coil. by bringing the temp down on the outside coil you get a better exchange and better cooling. I used a small copper tube with about 10 real small holes in it to drizzel just a little bit of water on the outside part of the machine. the fan cools off the outside coils off and gets a better exchange bringing down the temp of the air coming out of air conditioner

Hello, it sounds to me like it is the contactor coil on the outside unit, a contactor is like a relay and energizes when power is applied to it, If this contactor is stuck or bad it will cause the fan to run continously. I will post a pic of the contactor coil so you can see what it looks like. Most likely replacing the contactor coil will solve the problem and cost about 15 bucks at a heating and cooling store. robhvac47_15.jpg

A/c starts runs for about an hour than shuts down

When you say "a/c" is this just the outside unit (condenser) or the whole system ? If it comes on for about an hour and just the outside unit shuts off the with RUUD it would be either the low or high pressure switch in the outside unit. If the outside unit has had the coils washed off then it would most likely be low pressure from low refrigerant or dirty inside filter/coil.

Any other symptoms happening when the unit shuts off ? inside or out ?

After changing coil on a/c unit, it still has a leak!

a leak, other then in the a-c itself, should have been found when a vacuum was pulled on the system before it was recharged, also the dryer should have been replaced at this time, since the system was open.

units are not able to work properly above 90, 1.0 T not go for more than 1 room. is outside of unit clean? if not turn off power to unit then spray 409 or simple green or something along those lines of cleaners on the coil part (soak it real good) it should cover entire coil as much as possible. let cleaner sit on it for about 10 minutes then use water hose to rinse as good as you can. wait about 10 minutes then try unit - so work better.

Leak repair Samsung window air conditioner

Modern window units intentionally do not allow the water to drain directly, they want the fan blade to sling the water on to the condensor (the coil that is outside) to aid in cooling actually helps the unit cool better in high outside temps, it also evaporates it this way, depending on where the hole was drilled it may be able to be repaired, if it was just a copper tube it will be less expensive than replacing the whole coil. Since its a relative inexpensive unit anyway the labor and freon may be more than its worth. Lesson learned dont drill a hole in the base it lowers it's efficiency and can lead to a punctured freon line.
