If it has an energy efficient installed and turned on; it will do just that. If it does not, then, it is possible that the unit needs to be turned off until the tubing defreezes and it may be a possible solution...if not, then a repairman. God Bless, ac

Outside unit will only run for a short amount of time with A/C before the fan stops turning and starts humming, squealing/screeching and the top of the outside unit gets hot.

The bearings are bad in the motor and after the fan runs enough it eventually gets hot, making the bearing screech and the fan locks up. Need to replace motor again. See if it has a warranty. The reason it gets hot is because the fan is what removes the heat from the coil and if the fan isn't running there is nothing to cool it off so to speak.

Why is my Intertherm P681S unit getting hot and the fan is is stopping?

Is the outside running? Is the outside fan running? Probably what is happening the fan outside quits running and the compressor gets hot and goes into thermal overload. need to check to make sure the outside fan is running.

Why does my AC turn hot ?

It is a problem with a pressure switch. There are 2 pressure switches, a high and a low pressure switch.

The maximum run time is when the pressure is in a mid-range and neither pressure switch cuts off. What is happening in your case is the pressure is either too high or too low after the A/C runs a bit.

You need to test the system pressure and see what the average pressure reads as. This will give you some idea of whether your system needs more Freon.

If the system is low, you need more Freon and you need to stop the leak. Now if your system is very low, it is probably contaminated with outside air. When you get outside air in the system, bad things happen.

Outside will compress and make pressure; but outside air will not work like Freon and it also contains moisture which will freeze and block passages. That condition requires a Vacuum purge of the system and fixing the leak, then refilling the system with Freon.

Some of the bigger autoparts chains will Loan(deposit required) the proper tools to do some of this yourself. BUT if misused, you could cause more damage than the money you would pay someone to fix this in the first place.

A minimum attempt. Get a bigger can of Freon with a gauge and leak stop inside the can. You may be able to boost the pressure and seal the leaks with the right type of product. It may work. Follow the instructions and see if you can salvage what you have.

Please rate my info.

your auxillary fan is not working. this fan is responsible for cooling the freon that is being circulated in your cooling system... check if there are any loose wires in front of the engine bay.

the auxillary fan is located right beside your radiator fan.

I have a ac central unit that has freon put in it, but it still blows out hot air inside the house.

Need a bit more info. Do you hear the compressor come on? Is your Tstat in the cooling mode? Shut it down for a minute and turn it back on. you should hear the indoor fan come on . outside fan come on and the compressor come on the sametime as the out door fan comes on.. Freon is just a gas that is used to exchange heat .

Have the bootom freezer. what is happening is the freezer works and the top part quits cooling and the fan quits working. we took everythinhg out and transfered to the outside frig. we unplugged the...

if you can hear the fan still blowing but no cold air coming up to fridge section a common problem with bottom mount freezers is the door gets left open and the air ducts freeze up and the air can't blow up to the top.turn the control off in the freezer.remove the top shelf and the door,check to see if there are any screws one on each side of the slide arms,if there are remove them and lift the door up and out,with a hair dryer melt out the ice by blowing the hot air up each side of the back wall,also if the back inside wall of the freezer is covered with ice or like snow then you have a defrost problem but if there's no ice on back wall do what i said and blow the air up the sides of the back wall through the vents until no more water is seen dripping through the vent holes,then turn the freezer back on and check to see if you feel cold air blowing in through the vents in the fridge section,if you feel cold air then you're all set,if not keep blowing the hot air up the sides until it's melted out.let me know what you find,you'll know if the door was left open,ice will be on the ceiling near the light switch and sometimes on the top of the freezer door.
However if fan has quit totally then it will have to be replaced since it is responsible for cooling the upper part of the fridge

A/c works fine in the morning, blows out vents at 55* - 59*. later in the day, and as it gets hotter outside, a/c blows hot air. What's up?

could be slightly low on charge-or cooling fan is not working-as the temp outside goes up the ac needs to be more efficent to blow cold air--and really 55 is not that cold--depending on outside conditions should be able to blow at low to mid 40 s

Uotside unit blowing cool air but hot on the inside

It sounds like you have a unit called a heat pump. When a heat pump unit is in cooling mode the outside unit blows hot air and the inside unit blows cold air. If the outside unit is blowing cold then the indoor unit is most likely blowing room temperature or warm air. It sounds like the thermostat could be controlling incorrectly or you could have a failed reversing valve which is the device that switches the unit from heating to cooling mode.
