You have to try resetting the system. First turn the breaker off for the condenser and wait about 20 seconds. After you turn it back on the system should reset. If your problem is still there we would suggest you seek professional help.

SOURCE: tempstar air unit won't run,

Your fuses can have continuity and you still may not have high voltage to run the unit. Check your circuit breaker in your main power panel. It should be marked for the A/C .

The term for the cooling coil is Evaporator. The condensing unit is the outside unit and it does not have a drain.

SOURCE: squealing and sometimes doesn't blow cool

A squealing noise is most likely the bearings going bad in the blower motor. This will slow the motor down. If the blower is not operating at the proper speed this will affect the temperature pressure relationship of the refrigerant. This will cause the unit to put out the wrong temperature. Running the unit to long under these conditions can possibly cause further problems ( including a very high electric bill). I recommend that use do not use this unit untill it is repaired or replaced.
Good luck.....

SOURCE: panasonic air con unit is not blowing cold air out.

This unit is use in motels etc. Check the ouside coil ( conderser) from the inside (discharge fan ) for dirt. Most of these units are floor level . This can cause a unit to short cycle ( cold air is at the floor) .

How to fix problem of Air conditioner doesn't turn on


If your central air conditioner doesn't go on automatically:
1) Be sure the thermostat is set to “cool” and that the set temperature is well below the ambient temperature.
2) A central air conditioner should be on a dedicated 240-volt circuit; check the main electrical panel and any secondary circuit panels for a tripped breaker or blown fuse. If you find the problem there, reset the breaker or replace the fuse.
3) Make sure the furnace power switch is turned on and that the outdoor condenser's power switch, which is mounted on the outdoor unit, hasn't been shut off. Also, be sure the 240-volt disconnect next to the compressor, which is in a metal box, usually mounted on the house wall, hasn't been shut off.
4) Turn off the power to the air conditioner and check the thermostat.
5) Remove the thermostat's cover and unscrew the wire from the Y terminal.
6) Turn the power back on.
7) Holding the wire by its insulation ONLY, touch the bare end to the R terminal and hold it there for about two minutes. If the compressor kicks on, the thermostat is faulty; replace it or call an air-conditioning technician. If the compressor doesn't go on when you hold the two wires together, turn the power back off and call a technician.

Air conditioning does not blow cold air in my 2004 nissan x terra


If your a/c compressor kicks on and your manifold gauges show proper hi/lo readings then I would inspect the blend door. The blend door is a motor that moves back and forth when u set the temp for hot or cold . In your case, it may be stuck in the same position. The blend door is located in the dash, usually behind the glove box or in that general area. I hope you are able to fix your problem. Scott

AC is not cooling


Problem #1:Outdoor condensing fan motor has stopped running. This problem could be caused by a bad motor run capacitor. If your motor capacitor is not the problem, then more than likely you need a new motor. Is the fan blade tight, stiff or hard to turn? If the fan blade is hard to turn then you probably need a new motor. Problem #2: Air conditioner compressor will not start. When power is applied to the air conditioning outdoor unit the fan starts, but you hear a sound like the compressor is trying to start, "UGGG"..., for about 5 to 10 seconds and then all you hear is the outdoor condenser fan run. The compressor is locked and will not start. What is happening is the compressor is trying to start, but because the compressor motor is locked it tries to start for a few seconds and then because of the high amperage being drawn goes off on internal overload. The internal overload protects the compressor windings from overheating and burning up. I see this many times during the start of the air conditioning season. Some compressors just have a hard time starting after sitting all winter long. Some compressors are locked up so bad that I can not start them and must tell my customer that they need a new compressor . Many times I can get the compressor started again without having to buy a new compressor or new air conditioning system by using the device that is called, "Super-Boost." I keep two or three of these on the truck. They have saved many of my customers from having to buy new air conditioning systems.

Motor labouring - electric breaker kicking out


The problem that you describe could be casued by several problems that you can check yourself. I usually begin by checking the in-tank check valve for leaking air back to the pump. Follow the air discharge hose to the tank and you will find the brass checkvalve. With about 80psi in the tank, unplug the unit from the wall and loosen the smaller fitting (or larger whichever is easier ) at the checkvalve and listen for air leak. If leaking replace with generic valve available at www.grainger.com. Just pay attention to pipe sizes. If no leaks at check valve, remove capacitors from the motor (mark the leads) and test with meter. Repair shops usually test for free if you do not have a meter that can test capacitors. The caps should test within 95% of rating printed on side. Replace with generic to save money just watch size so that they will fit under cover (also available at grainger). If no problems so far, remove the belt and check bearings on motor and compressor for noise (should be relative silent as your turn it by hand). Worn bearings on the motor will cause the motor to overheat. Worn bearings on compressor will just make noise but usually not cause your problem. If all good, then problem could be valves in pump leaking causing the pump to become very hot. This is a visual inspection by removing the head. Finally the electric motor uses sealed bearings and cannot be lubed, only replaced due to age. Good luck

Central air conditioner doesn't turn on... Any suggestions?


If the compressor turns off and won?t come back on during a very hot day, the unit may have built up a high "head" pressure and the high-pressure limit switch may have tripped. This is usually located right inside the access panel on the compressor unit. Simply push the button to return it to operation. If your central air conditioner doesn't go on automatically: 1) Be sure the thermostat is set to "cool" and set below room temperature. 2) A central air conditioner should be on a dedicated 240-volt circuit; check the main electrical panel and any secondary circuit panels for a tripped breaker or blown fuse. If you find the problem here, reset the breaker or replace the fuse. 3) Make sure the furnace power switch is turned on and that the outdoor condenser's power switch, mounted on the outdoor unit, hasn't been shut off. Also be sure the 240-volt disconnect next to the compressor (in a metal box, usually mounted on the house wall) hasn't been shut off. 4) Turn off the power to the air conditioner and check the thermostat. 5) Remove the thermostat's cover and unscrew the wire from the Y terminal. 6) Turn the power back on. 7) Holding the wire by its insulation, touch the bare end to the R terminal and hold it there for about 2 minutes. If the compressor kicks on, the thermostat is faulty; replace it or call an air conditioning technician. If the compressor doesn't go on when you hold the two wires together, turn the power back off and call a service technician.
