Cloud of white stuff around my air conditioning unit

Last night my breakers had to be reset so when i turned all of them back on i heard some noise coming from outside.when i went to check it out it was coming from the air conditioning unit and i notice like a white cloud around it. but it did not have a smell to it. im guessing it was freon!! now my house is not cooling right. what caused it to leak out?

It could be a burnt out solenoid making a hole of its stem causing gas with oil to escape that is the white stuff

Outside unit turns on and runs for a long time by itself then shuts off. Does this all day an night long. Notice this after a circuit breaker tripped. Not breaker to unit though. Other parts of house.


You have to try resetting the system. First turn the breaker off for the condenser and wait about 20 seconds. After you turn it back on the system should reset. If you need any other Air Conditioning Repair help. Check us out online.

All electric apt 5 year old fan wont turn off when air is off


Sound like bad mercury switch or time for a new thermostat would be my first guess, second guess would be that the condensing unit needs to be cleaned out side. it might be frozen up, that happens when it gstarts getting hot outside.
It might also just be as easy as flipping the breaker to the unit to allow it to reset and turning it back on. but if its still cooling and just wont shutt off, my guess would be thermostat or lose wire in there of.

If you dont have a maintenance guy you can call and it is too cool, try turning the breaker off at night until you can get it looked at.

This is a good question to ask. 1. if a unit trippes a breaker its for 2 reasons. A. to protect the wiring from catching fire . B. to protect you from electrical contact with ashort condition. Before you buy a new unit I would recommend you fix the wiring as bad siring is ******* the unit and costly to operate due to load resistance. Also replace any breakers that are unsed to support this unit. Brealers go bad esp if they have been problematic in the past. I am not certain as to the size of the unit you have now but if it cooled the room well then replace it with a match or a bit bigger unit.
As to why it tripps the breaker now? could be a couple thing Bad wiring like you state. weak breakers as I pointed out. or a bad compressor or fans. Or in my view its most like a combo of all the above. Hope this helps let me know.. Jon

Electric Dbl Wall Oven-loud popping noise at end of self clean


Bill ,i dont suspect the control unit is the problem im going back to the loud pop you heard I would say the pop you heard was one of the elemants blowing and that the reason the the breaker tripped if you say the clock,timer and light functon are ok it more so points to an elemant in most cases when an elemant blows it breaks the circuit .but the other componants also work when you reset the breaker i think in this case bill i would call a electrician it needs testing,sorry i could not help this time bill,but do not hesatate to contact me if i can help you again.adrian
