Question about Amana Heating & Cooling

Airconditioner not cooling

I have 21 yr old Amana unit that was running but not cooling. Just had a/c guy out to look at it. He refilled refrigerant, but it still does not bring inside temp down. He mentioned that coils inside furnace may be frozen and to leave a/c off for a while to defrost. How long would that take? Could there be another problem besides age of the unit?

Hey ther, you got an old unit there. Usually 24 hours is more than enough time to thaw a coil out. If you leave your fan on it goes a lot quicker but all depends on how much ice it has. Usually a frozen coil is an easy fix but not always. You could be low on refrigerant (make sure they find the leak if it is recharged otherwise it will just happen again), Another cause is dirty filter, or dirty coil, or dirty fan ( probably this since it is old. The last cause is a restriction in the refrigerant lines. That is an expensive fix because they have to pull the refrigerant ot to fix. You shouldn't need any parts regardless except possibly a filter drier or metering device (both can be the restriction in the refrigerant line)
Good Luck

We have a amana refrigerator that is 6 years old and i was told the compresser went out. Should that happen to a 6 yr fridge?


Hi,
The compressor is an electrical device and then can fail at any time....there is no reliable way to totally predict the life span... power surges and power conditioning can also affect the reliability of the device....

We have a3 yr old Goodman CAPF3030B6AA Airconditioner and Furnace. The Air conditioner hasnt worked right all summer. Its 102 degrees outside and we can set the thermostat on 72 degrees and it will be...


A/C units have a design temperature of 90F. Now when the temperature is above 90F they start to have trouble keeping up. Depending on how well your unit is sized for the house, you will notice when the temp is over 90F. I don't know if who ever looked at your unit checked the refrigerant pressures since you said he checked the temps but I assume he did, however, it could possibly need charging.
