Due to the many different questions I see about Air Conditioning, I am including this overview to help us better understand each other for trouble shooting. A basic air conditioning system has a Thermostat, Air Handler or Furnace Fan and a Condensing unit. In a split system, the condensing unit (Condenser) is separate from the furnace and usually in the back yard. When working properly, it blows hot air. It connects to the cooling part of the system by 2 copper lines. One large line and 1 small line. The part that cools the house is the "Evaporator" and is usually on top of the furnace inside the square metal box (Plenum). When the Air Conditioner is running, the large copper line should be cold and the smaller line should be warm. Common signs of low refrigerant are that both lines are the same temperature and/or frost or ice has built up on the large line at the condenser. The thermostat will normally display room temperature on till it is touched to change the setting. It could have a "Span" setting as well as times and temperatures. The operating "span" of MOST residential thermostats is 40 to 90 degrees. That means you can set it as low as 40 degrees and no higher than 90 degrees. It probably has a fan switch also. When in the "ON" position, the fan will run constantly, 24 / 7, but the condenser will still cycle on and off as needed to keep the house at set point. If you have a suggestion to include in this paragraph, please let me know.

I think I have it covered above. Let me know if you need something more specific. Thank you. Roger

It sounds like he got you a Hard Start Kit/Capacitor, that might explain
the five minute delay. When the fan is not operating the compressor will
make a loud noise..

Check to make sure insulated suction line is cold, that mgiht tell you that the compressor is working.

Check to make sure hot air is discharging out of the condensor.

If neither of these to things are happening and you think the compressor is on, it is possible that you are low on refrigerant.

Check to make sure your indoor blower is working, the filter is clean and check to see if you have condensation dripping from the indoor unit

Not condensing


Check to see if coils are getting cold, (run for 10 min. then unplug, and check inside unit). If they are, check and clean filter and coils. If not, most likely no economical to fix. Check consumer reports before buying a new one. New standards came in to play this year. Changed quality on the units.

Refrigerator is not getting COLD


clean the coils on the back of the fridge and make sure the condenser fan is free and running normally. that is the fan at the back of the unit on the bottom where the compressor is. if it cant ge rid of the heat, it wont cool. also make sure the the fan that supplys the cold from the freezer to the fridge is working.

Clicking from Condenser


I would have to say it's your fan going out, also if the units aren't fixed the the DD should come out and fix it for free since it wasn't done the first time. I would take a look at it but I don't know where in florida you are. I'm in highlands county. If your close enough I could come take a look. If there's clicking coming from your condenser then it's one of two things, the compressor or the fan. hopefully the fan. let me know.

My unit is running but not cooling


Hi, Probably not an easy fix. Sounds like its shutting down on Low pressure or High pressure. Could be condenser fan motor. The easiest thing it could be would be a run capacitor on the fan motor. They usually swell up and or leak oil when they go bad. You could check on that but make sure all the power to the unit is shut off before working on it. I would just call the manager or owner myself if I were you. I'm sure he is charging enough rent for him to cover such problems. Hope I have helped. kstfas
