That singing sound you hear from the coils mean the system has lost it's refrigerant charge, due to a leak in the refrigerant lines. Most of the time repairing the system is more expensive than buying a new window unit. Make sure you get a bid before repairing it.

Air was not cooling but indoor fan was working. Checked outdoor unit, fan not working and hearing like a vibrating/humming sound.


If the condenser coil is very dirty it may have tripped a manual reset high pressure switch try and locate it on the condenser , Also check breaker feeding unit. If it comes back on turn off at the thermostat and wash condenser coil with a garden hose .

AC unit wont work, inside coils are hissing but outside unit not turning on.


If thisnis a central air conditioner and there is hissing at the indoor coil then the compressor is running, it is possible that both fans are not running. The indoor motor may not run if the control board is bad, capacitor is bad or the motor itself is bad. The outdoor fan may have a bad capacitor or the motor itself is bad

My Amana AAC101SRA doesn't cool like it used to. We have cleaned the filter, but that doesn't seem to help. Should we call a repairman or think about getting another unit?


Is the outdoor coil blocked? Is the outdoor coil clean? Is the compressor running when you start unit. When you turn unit off after running it can you hear a hissing sound from within?

Unit cools then sound like hissing noise then stops cooling sound like relief


Hi, this hissing you hear is the head pressure getting very high in the system due to the out door coil is very dirty. It shuts the compressor down until it cools off again, then repeats its self again. Take a water hose and wash down the outdoor coil being careful not to flatten the aluminum fins. This will solve your problem! Good luck,

Air conditioner isn't blowing cold! Fan works okay but air isn't cool. Can hear hissing sound that sounds like normal compressor function. Do I need a coolant recharge?


You will need the condenser coils repaired before you can charge it. These come from the factory sealed and they should not ever need a charge unless you have a leak. The hissing sound is more likely air in the system being pumped by the comressor and it is coming out a hole in the coils.
