Not blowing upstairs not coolin


Hi,
The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It is located inside the air conditioner at the center. Is it humming or making any kind of continuous noise or causing the lights to dim? If it is making a continuous noise, and your air conditioner is still not cooling at all, there may be a serious problem with one or more of these areas:

  • Compressor


  • Condenser


  • Evaporator


These items are not user serviceable. You will need to contact a qualified appliance repair technician to repair these components.

If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the air conditioner there may be a problem in one or more of these areas:

  • Compressor


  • Overload and/or relay


  • Thermostat (Open thermostat)


  • Burnt wiring


  • Bad selector switch


  • Capacitor


The air is cool but doesn't seem cold enough If the air doesn't seem cool enough it is necessary to use a thermometer to check the difference in temperature between the air going into the unit and the air being blown into the room. Ideally, the temperature difference should be more than 15 degrees. For example, if the temperature going into the air conditioner is 80 degrees, the temperature coming out of the unit should be at least 65 degrees or less. If the difference is 15 degrees or more there is probably no cause for concern. If the temperature difference is less than 15 degrees you should check the following:

  • Air damper


Check to make sure the air damper is closed. If it's open, it will bring in outside air and reduce the efficiency of the unit.

  • Back cover


During the winter season many people cover their air conditioners to protect the unit from the weather. In the spring or summer they will sometimes forget to remove the cover. If your unit has a cover on the outside portion of the air conditioner remove the cover first.

  • Condensing coils


The condensing coils will always be on the "warm" side of the air conditioner. That is, on the side that faces outside of the room to be cooled. Air is drawn into the back of the air conditioner on the sides through vent slots and is blown directly out through the condenser coils. If the coils get clogged with lint, dust and dirt the cooling system cannot provide the cooling necessary. To clean the coils it will be necessary to remove the entire cover of the air conditioner or pull it out of the wall to gain access to the coils. They can be cleaned by blowing compressed air at them or by using a soft bristle brush to wipe the dirt off. It is important to also clean any dirt or lint build-up in the bottom of the air conditioner so the condensate water will be picked up by the condensing fan slinger properly.

My Maytag portable A/C will blow cold air for one cycle, then after about five minutes it just blows room temp air and never gets cold again. If I turn power off then back on it does the same thing over...


Cleaned the filter screen or the coils? There are two coils. The evaporator coil and the condensor. There is the "filter screen" in which you can clean which is located in the back top portion of the panel that is easily accessible. However to clean the coils you need to remove ALL the back screws from the back cover and remove the entire back panel. There you will see both coils. From your statement it sounds like there isn't sufficient airflow over your coils and the freon cannot release its cooling effect into the hot air thus it tends to ice up on the coils. You need to wash out all the lint dust from both coils. You can do this with with air conditioning coil cleaner or for starters use a stiff paint brush and vaccuum. Clean as much debris off as you can, then run the unit. It should last longer than your previous five minutes. If it doesn't work then your in trouble. There is a metering device called a TXV or expansion valve that may have failed causing the freon not to flow freely thoughout your system. However it is a rare occassion that it fails so it should be that the coils are dirty. GOOD LUCK

A/c unit will turn on but after being set on low cool for 5 minutes it will turn itself off. And not be able to turn on again unless I unplug it and plug it back in. But it never gets cold or stays on...


What I would do is take it to the work bench. Remove the case. Remove the cover on top of the compressor and check the compressor overload for signs of wear. Bypass it and see if the compressor stays on (testing purposes only). Do not leave it that way. Replace the overload if the ac stays going. Clean the coils.

remove front cover and clean the coils off with a nylon brush. make sure filter is clean. with front cover off take it outside hook it to an extension cord and set it on the floor. then let it run till the stuff stops coming out. if you want to open the whole thing up you could clean it out even more example being the inside fan area behind the coils, but the first option should work.

Exhaust fan running slow


sounds like the compressor is turning off cause of high pressure. check the coil that the exhaust hose connects to, if dirty clean it. if the fan is not blowing enough air threw the coil the unit will build up high side pressure and cut out, but will turn back on when pressure drops. if that dont help, maybe the fan motor is bad or needs taken apart and oiled.

When i turn my a/c on it makes a *tink* noise but the fan still works ((its not cold))


The fan runs but there's no cold air? Is the air conditioner completely dead? See section 1. Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting? Is the compressor motor running? The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It is located inside the air conditioner at the center. Is it humming or making any kind of continuous noise or causing the lights to dim? If it is making a continuous noise, and your air conditioner is still not cooling at all, there may be a serious problem with one or more of these areas:

Taking off cover to clear coils????


Not sure what model you have but most slide out of their cabinet after removing the front plastic grill that holds vents. Front should snap loose, but be sure no screws hold front in place. As always use care and unplug while working on your unit. Take care not to wet electric controls or motor windings. Thanks
