Not cooling very well. Had this unit for about 4 years. First three years it worked great. This summer it is cooling some but only cools the air about 5 degrees cooler. Can this unit be recharged?

Air conditioning worked all summer and now heat will not come on and outside unit will not run


Is this a heat pump or straight cool with heat strips. If straight cool the outdoor unit should not run in heat. If heat pump, did it work last year? If it did and now the outdoor unit will not run you likely have a bad control board. Possibly lost your settings in your tstat... check the stat first, make sure its configured for HP

How do i get my soleus air conding unit to blow cold air, its blowing cool air. can i recharge this unit myself -if so then what type of freon would i use.


most likely have to install a line tap valve to charge. look for oil residue on lines to indicate leak. the evaporator is the weak point on most a/c systems.

I installed a fujitsu asu24c1 unit in my garage a few years ago. I used it for one summer, didn't turn it on last summer and when I turned it on this year it wouldn't cool. I have troubleshooted...


With the limited information i would suggest the following:
Check to see if the outdoor unit is running.
If the outdoor unit is running, grab the large copper line coming out of it and see if it is cool.
If the fan outside is running and the line is not cool then the compressor is not running or the system has lost its refrigerant charge.
Check these things and repost for a more complete answer.
Hope this helps.

We had a brand new unit put in a couple of years back. When it was installed it worked. Once winter came, it obviously was turned off. Then the following summer, it would turn on but just blow air,...


yes but you should have to keep resteting it you might have a major problem are you beiing charge for freon if so you have a bad condensor unit (it have a leak ) check your bill if the same thing happens again go see what the techs are doing

Compressor ?


Sounds like you are over heating the compressor, try cleaning the out door unit coil. Take a hose and blow water through it, be carefull not to bend the fins.

Blowing out warm air


Turn thermostat switch to 'cool' setting. It's a 'heat pump' and is in the heat mode.

AC not cooling during the day


Your AC cooling efficiency is low when he ambient temperature is high and naturally it cools well when the outside temperature drops.

Please remove the filter on the grill and try to clean it under the tap water and after removing all the dust fix it back to the unit. This would increase the cooling efficiency of the unit.

Your AC is also five years old. Please avoid frequent opening of doors or windows.

Ensure that the exhaust fan and the blower of your unit are functioning normal.

The technician might not have done a proper job in fixing the area where the refrigerant would have leaked out. Please check the refrigerant pressure to ensure that no further refrigerant leak has taken place. Or even servicing your unit he would have punchered the tubes resulting in very slow leak of refrigerant resulting in no cooling or less cooling. It takes around a month to feel the pinch of it and the refrigerant. One fine morning after sometime the unit will run and it would start throwing hot air instead of cool breeze!

My Lennox Air conditioner only heats


It is possible that it's the thermostat. When you turn it into cool mode, does the unit come on at all or is it silent? If nothing is coming on, then it's likely it's the tstat. Did the tech check the refrigerant charge while he was there? He should have checked it with the auxillary heat off and the unit just in heat mode. Make sure that the condenser unit outside is coming on when you are calling for cool, If you turn it on and everything comes on, go outside and put your hand on the large copper pipe coming into the unit. In cool mode, this pipe will be cold to the touch and in heat mode, the pipe will be warm to the touch. There isn't much you can do on your own with the exception of changing the tstat. If you can answer some of the questions I have posed, I can try and give you some more answers. Just remember that a check up doesn't mean its a guarantee that something won't happen the next day, it's just that everything was in working order at the time of the checkup.

Old unit blowing air, not cooled


You will have to contact the manufacture to get the age. The age can be determined through the serial number of that unit but often, only the manufacture can tell you. Window units are so inexpensive these days so I would recommend replacing it if you have done everything in regards to general maintenance of the unit like cleaning the indoor coil and rinsing out the coils at the back of the unit. Also, if you can get to the fan blades safely, they usually need a good cleaning as well. If you have done all this and it still doesn't cool, then I would replace it. I personally like the LG brand window units.
