Check your evaporator fan to see if it is blowing. This is usually inside the house with the furnace or in the attic.

MY AC WORKS FOR FOUR HOURS PER DAY AND BARELY COOLS DOWN THE HOUSE, NOT MUCH AIR COMING UP TO THE UPSTAIRS OF THE HOUSE. AFTER 4 HOURS, THE OUTSIDE UNIT SHUTS UP AND NOT MORE COOL AIR COMES IN. BEFORE THIS...


I am not understanding exactly what is happening with your unit. You say it only runs for 4 hours a day and then say that after 4 hours the outside unit shut off. But you don't describe the condition of the outside unit! Is there ice on your outside unit after it runs for four hours or is it so hot that the housing would fry an egg? Since it works for four hours and then stops working, I would guess that ice forms on the condenser grill which tells the thermostat that your air is much colder than it actually is. Then it takes time for the ice to melt off again. Am I close? If so this condition is usually caused by your unit being low on freon making everything work harder. But it could also mean that you have a leak in the system somewhere. But it shouldn't be much of a leak or it wouldn't run for the 4 hours.
I would recommend you charge it to the correct level and then check for leaks.

Why does the air conditioner leak water from behind the unit. My air conditioner is placed in a wall and the back end of the conditioning unit sticks out inside the garage. I have ventilation by...


It is normal for an air conditioner to leak water out the back. This water is actually the humidity being taken out of your house. Being vented out in to the garage is always an issue with condensate water. I have seen some people take a funnel and run a hose outside the garage somewhere. Keep the vent closed. It will be harder to cool the house with the vent open because it lets outside air in to the house.

We have a GE model aeh08fmg1 window air conditioner that is leaking water inside our house.


I presume its a refrigerated air conditioner ?? Not an evaporative type. All refrigerated airconds have an internal drain which collects the moisture buildup off the evaporator coil. This drain will have a hose which runs through the wall to the outside. Have a look outside where all the aircon pipes come out. This hose could be blocked by dirt or a mouse may have chewed a hole in it. Try blowing air up the hose to clear it.

I have 2 of the MSZ-A09NA Mr. Slim model in my 400 sq. ft. cottage. In the summer time my cottage is always damp feeling and the ducts drip condensation. How do I prevent this dripping?


It sounds like you have too much air conditioner vs. conditioned space. This would cause dripping and short run times. Air conditioners are designed not only to cool the house but to pull the moisture out, if it is too big and cools the area too fast the outside of the ducts will begin to collect condensation like the outside of a cold glass of water.

How do I know if compressor of my house air conditioner is turning on when I start my air conditioner? When I start my air conditioner the fan outside the house turns on, the air is blowing from the vents...


if the compressor is starting there will be a very small dimming in the house lights,if you go outside to the unit and start it from the outside disconnect when the compressor starts you will hear a whine type noise coming from the outside condenser unit that is the hermetic compressor motor operating,no cold air can be a number of issues,low on refrigerant(not likely on the new sealed systems) a bad motor start/run capacitor(quite likely) a bad contactor on the outside unit that supplies power to the compressor,one leg of the 240volts that supplies the compressor power,the fan will run on 120 volts,but the compressor needs 240 volts check the fuses.breaker in the power panel

sounds like a siezed up blower motor inside your furnace if you were running your air conditioner with out the blower motor it will turn everything into a block of ice at your indoor coil you need to let this thaw out
i would recommend calling a heating an air conditioning company

Chemicals in house from pool when running air conditioner


Hi,
There is a small possibility that the air conditioner is sucking some of the air outside. If you're using a window type a/c, there is a small fresh air intake vent you can open and close. If your using a wall type or free standing a/c, fresh air would only come from opening doors or windows. Using a centralized a/c has a fresh air intake and that could be the cause of your problem. The solution would be an anti-odor filter.

I hope this helps.

Air handler will not run clogged up drain?


the air handler is in the attic or in a closet right? most likely the drain switch mentioned is in a pan located underneath the air handler, the switch is actuated when the condensation drain tube is clogged, ( when it cannot drain the water out of the pan), the float switch is actuated and the unit shuts off to prevent any more condensation, thus preventing overflow into your house/apt. the drain line can be sucked out by using a simple wet/dry vacuum of any kind from the end of the drain line ( usually a 3/4 inch PVC pipe located somewhere outside ).

My window air is leaking on the inside of my house


usually because the drain hole/duct/tube, on the outside is blocked, or the aircon is mounted leaning Into the house, condesate that is supposed to drip into the outer casing and run out the hole is funneled over the lowest point of the casing, the house side.
check and unblock the drain,
and ensure the aircon is mounted tilted back.
