Question about Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

This unit has never really cooled the 12 x 12 room.Goes down to about 70 degrees, -that is it.Used about two months with this lukewarm behaviour last year. I opened it up. Unit inside looks intact. All wires secure to control panel and their respective contacts. Tanks and tubing are intact. CN2 and CN3 tube and room probes are okay. However, the room probe is right on the surface of the coolant distribution "fins", after the plastic slotted keeper. Do I move one of these probes further away from the actual unit a bit ?

    Sorry, I am not about to pull of all the wires.This is a new unit.With the cover cabinet off, I have the unit on a workbench,I see that wiring seems to go to proper respective places as marked on the wiring diagram. I see the compressor turning on after 3 minutes after putting power on. (Fans work fine on all levels.)I moved the room probe a bit away from the unit in front. It does send cold air out now, the cooled tubing in front is cold. I haven't put the unit back into the room as yet. I will try it again put into place back in the room, and see if it cools the room this time.This is a btu 10k unit, it should cool a room of 12 x 12, and it has not.

    Thanks, I will look into the timer. I have it cooling the area to about 66 degrees now, -a little bit better. I moved the room probe away from the unit.I don't hear the compressor turning on and off, but I will have the timer checked out. All else seems to be doing what it is supposed to.

Check wether the timer switch is faulty or timer itself is faulty in your that case it will keep on dissconnecting the cooling commands and wont alow the room to cool making the compresser go off again and again.get it checked.

wires should go to a wiring center (all connections made here). Theyusually have spade connector ends. Use needle nose pliers to pull themloose. Made a drawing showing what wire hooks where & what coloreach wire is. Yes, send me pictures. Later
PS There is a capacitor in there somewhere, watch out for it. Even with the juice off, it will give you a nasty bite.

Many people might think of their air conditioning system as a simpleunit that can be turned on or off in order to control temperature;however, a cooling system is a lot more than that. It doesn't justcontrol the amount of cool air in a house or office. It has an impacton the air that is breathed, including the amount of moisture and moldin a room or house.
The system also has an effect on the amount of energy that is usedand the amount of money that is spent each month. Air conditioningsystems also have an influence on an individual or family's healththrough the air quality that is filtered through a house or officebuilding.
An air conditioning system should be checked twice each year by aqualified technician to keep the unit working properly. An inspectiontypically includes:

    1. Checking system functions and safety controls, and adjusting the operating sequence where appropriate. 2. Inspecting electrical components and connections, and repairing/replacing or tightening as required.
    3. Ensuring proper airflow and changing dirty air filters.
    4. Inspecting pumps and checking flow rates where appropriate.
    5. Cleaning and lubricating motors as required.
    6. Examining belts, and adjusting and aligning as required.
    7. Inspecting, cleaning and balancing blowers as required.
How to Find a Quality Contractor
Most people don't give their air conditioning unit a second thoughtuntil something goes wrong and it needs to be serviced. Maybe it isblowing warm air, or won't come on at all. When this happens, you willneed to find a quality contractor to fix the problem. A skilledcontractor will:
  • Comply with state and local codes and regulations, and carry the proper business and workers' compensation insurance
  • Be prompt and courteous and provide fast and reliable service.
  • Possess skill and knowledge to service the equipment, and if necessary, design and install the right system.
  • Be educated with the most up-to-date developments in equipment,technology and design procedures to choose and install a system that isthe most efficient and reliable.

    you must check the amp draw with a meter to verify if the compressor is
    locked up. if it draws L.R.A. amps which should be listed on the
    compressor it is lock up and needs replaced.

Air conditioners generally cool the air 15 to 20 degrees. 80 degrees in return should be 65 in supply. 70 degrees in return should be 55 in supply. If the a.c. is in that range it is working fine and doing all it is going to do.

Indoor unit coil air temperature 60F - 70F after R22 charge..

Clean the outside and inside coils and filter. This could be an air flow problem

Indoor unit temperature between 60F & 70F after R22 charge..

The pressure changes with temperature, it is not a true gauge to ensure a proper charge.

You should have a 15 to 20 degree temp drop across the evap coil. (return air vs supply air)

Can you verify that the compressor is running?
Not the condenser, but the compressor located inside the condenser (outdoor unit)

it really sounds like it is still undercharged.
Check the temp drop, let me know what it is.
Also tell me what the outdoor ambient temp is.

( for example.... 98 degree outdoors with 85 degree indoor temp could result in pressures something like 325 on the high side and 75 or 80 on the low side.
With the exact same unit, but 80 degree outdoor temp combined with 70 degree indoor temp, your pressures could read 215 low side and 55 low side. Not to mention that more efficient units often have higher pressures on the low side because they have more coil space and remove heat more efficiently)

I also want my air conditioner to cool to 55 degrees F or 12 C

12 degrees celcius equals 53.6 degrees Farenheit. You can have a unit hard wired but I don't recommend it. There are limitions to a\c units, they really shouldn't run if the outside temp is below 60 degrees.

I bought a Lg 11,500 btu air conditioner yesterday at home depot. It has been set on 60 degrees with the fan on high and will only bring my room temp down to does not feel cool

An 11'500 btu Is appr. 1 ton of cooling capacity or enough to cool approximatly 450 sq ft of floor area. Be sure to read the instructions of course and be sure that all the packaging material was removed that may be restricting airflow. On high you should be able to easily feel the air blowing 10-15 ft from the unit and the air should be dropping about 15- 20 degrees when it exits the unit. So if the room temperature is 85 degrees the air exiting the unit should be around 65 -70. The amount of time it takes to cool the entire room depends on how big the room is and how much and the intensity of the heat infiltrating the room and the number and heat output of appliances and people in the room. Hope this helps you out GL!

Cooling Problems

Your filter is clogged. Not the one at the bottom of the unit.The one above the unit. It is like a raditor coils, kind of a bear to get to. We have cats and dogs the filter gets most of the hair but not all.Usualy about 6 bolts to take out.The proublem will be at the bottom of the top filter.
