SOURCE: water keeps leaking from central

It's supposed to do that. There should be a drain line on it to direct the water to drain. That line may be plugged up, you'll have to check it out.

SOURCE: Can somebody help,why is my Central AC blows

Most heat pumps have an auxillary heat. Many are electric auxillary heat with a heat strip in the air handler. A common malfunction is for the electric auxillary heat to operate when the heat pump is set on cool. To confirm this, locate the conductor that runs from the heat sequencer to the connection on the heat strip. You will see this on the top section of the air handler. Use the clamp on part of the amp meter over that wire. If the thermostat is set on cool and the heat strip is drawing amps, it means the heat is coming on while the heat pump is set on cool. There is usually one or two causes for this, either the sequencer is bad or there is low voltage wires usually behind the thermostat or in the air handler closet that are touching that shouldn't be touching.

If this is not the case, if its not a problem of where the heat is coming on with the air conditioner, it could be a case of the reversing valve malfunctioning. The way a heat pump works is it reverses the flow of the refridgerant. For instance, many heat pumps the reversing valve is activated in cool. That would mean that there is a low voltage circuit that activates the reversing valve when the heat pump is in cool. I'm not sure what model/brand your heat pump is, Goodman and Janitrol for instance, the heat pump reversing valve is activated in cool. In any case, if the reversing valve is not operating properly, when the air conditioning is set to cool it will actually be heating. Or you could set it to heat and it may actually be cooling instead of heating. Please check these two items first and if you have any further questions, please let me know. Especially if you know of any additional problems like the evaporater is icing up or if the air handler fan is not operating when it should.

Several types out there. 99% of them use the same basic wiring.
Red is power from transformer to t'stat. Sometime there is a wire for common from transformer to t'stat too, but not always.
While is for heat. Green is for fan. Yellow is for cooling.
These 4 to 5 wires go on the terminals that are maked with letters: C=common, RH/RC is for power, W=heat, Y=cooling, G=fan.

In most cases, 2 wires from the indoor unit will go to the outdoor unit to power it for cooling. Usually connected to the yellow wired, Y terminal and common or grounded to the unit if the transformer is done in the same fashion.

If you have a heat pump, totally different animal and different wiring too.

Hope this helps you. Good Luck.

I need help with a buzzing sound in my air conditioner.


It is probably the compressor humming. They can make some funny noises especially on start for a while. If the unit is not cooling it may be the start capacitor or the comressor may be locked up.

Whenever I turn on my air conditioner, my car makes a roaring or rubbing noise. What is it?


Sounds like the clutch in the compressor which would usually be in the front lower portion of the engine on a pulley on the front of engine (passenger side on front wheel drive cars - and tubes are connected to it.  When engine is off spray with some lube but not on belt - allow to drip of for couple minutes.
Try that couple times and start car in between times using the air conditioning.  Not sure if you can replace the clutch unit or have to replace the compressor as a unit which would lose the Freon or R2 or whatever the new stuff is called now...
Hope that helps.

Carrier A/C making buzzer noise every 6 minutes.


Probably the contactor, they have a coil that sometimes buzzes, after the contacts become pitted and no loger pull together like they are supposed to. It could also be a voltage problem from the transformer that is causing it, but I would bet on the contactor. Get it fixed quickly as a voltage drop across the contactor can be the demise of you compressor!

Bmw air injection pump problem...HELP!


sounds like the secondary air pump has water contamination. If you unplug the connector for the air pump, and check it on cold start, did the noise go away? If the pump is bad, you need to replace the secondary air valve. Sounds like maybe it is contaminated and not seating fully.

Sound's like you have some sort of a short or an open, somewhere, i would first check your fuse box,
in your engine and in your dash with a test light. make sure all fuses are working, if you had an open or short it could be possible you blew various fuses with a certain surge of power..
Second.. if you have an aftermarket sterio and all said before turns out alright. then i would pull out and check the wiring in the sterio and all surrounding it, one could have been rubbing up on another bare wire or ground out.

good luck..
