Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Our air conditioner keeps going off, and won't come back on, what is the problem?

Our air conditioner has quit 3 times in the last couple of weeks. Each time the landlord sends a guy out, and he only spends a couple of minutes, and "fixes" it. The first time he said it was a fuse. The second time he didn't say what it was, just "try that and see if that works". It happened again last night, and this time we noticed that it quit after turning the dryer on. We also remembered the second time it quit, we had turned the dryer on that time too. What would cause this, and what is the problem? We checked the breakers, and that is not the problem. We have a gas furnace and air. The air or heat won't turn on at all. There is no power going to it. I wish I knew what it was, so that maybe we can "fix" it ourselves, because last time we waited 3 days for the guy to come, he kept saying he would be here, and we would wait all day, and can't plan to go anywhere. Anyone recognize this problem?

    Could turning on the dryer just be a coincidence? Because I have googled the problem and can't find anything.

Does the dryer still wor? you can try switching off the circuit breaker then back on in case the ac is locked out electricaly. do both the dryer and the ac breakers, but this would not be common to two circuits which should be independent.

    P.S. You may need to reset both indoor and outdoor power if your ac is split system

10 months ago? Do have any warranty on this?
As far as adding refrigerant. Yes - you can add some - but you need to fix the leak first, since it will be quite expensive to keep putting refrigerant in. I would first try to get the mfc repair it and if that fails I would call a serviceperson.
note: fixing a leak and re-charging the system is going to take someone 'very' knowledgable of air conditioners.
good luck!

Carrier Air Conditioner- not reaching set temperature


if it is set to 76 degrees and its 78 in the house its working fine it is suppose to shut off once it reaches 76 but sometimes there is a 1 or 2 degree differential built ini would keep you filter clean and as long as it blows out cold air i wouldnt be to concerned most airconditioners need yearly cleanings though

Amana air conditioner keeps popping its cord breaker


This a ground fault breaker. They do go bad. Is it kicking it all the time or when you plug it in. I replaced a lot of the ground fault plugs. You have to go to the Appliance Parts store to get a new power cord. If you have a problem with thisyour warranty should cover the power cord check your warranty. Rus
