Question about Amana Heating & 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)
