Sounds like your low on refrigerant, presuming your compressor is coming on at all. Listen for a distinctively lower toned motor running other than the fan motor. Either problem necessitates an EPA certified Tech for a fix. Good luck

    REPLACE RUN START CAPACITOR TO COMPRESSOR MOTOR INSIDE PANEL,THEN
    LATER PURCHASE EQUIVALENT MOTOR FROM SEARS OR ANY HVAC SUPPLY, YOU
    CAN EASILY GET MOTOR SPECS RIGHT FROM THE MOTOR ONCE YOU DISASSEMBLE
    THE FAN, GRILL, ETC. MAKE SURE BREAKER IS OFF FIRST. CAP IS INSIDE PANEL,
    FOLLOW WIRES FROM MOTOR TUBE TO PANEL, JUST UNPLUG BLADE CONNECTORS,
    LABEL YOUR WIRES!! THE CIRCUIT DIAGRAM IN THE PANEL IS USUALLY RUINED,
    REMEMBER CAPS WILL STORE A CHARGE SOMETIMES. ONCE CAP IS REPLACED,
    THEN RESET BREAKER AND RESET THERMOSTAT IN THE HOUSE, THE MOTOR
    SHOULD START WORKING, YOU'RE DONE. IF MOTOR SQUEALS OR DOESENT
    WORK PROPERLY, CHANGE TO A NEW MOTOR, THEY ARE LESS THAN $100.00.
    CAP SHOULD ONLY COST YOU $20.00 MAX.

Why does it just blow cool air?


Check outside condensing unit. Should feel warm to hot air blowing out of the top. If cool to outside air temperature blowing off you likely have a refrigerant problem

Why does the compressor run only for about 5 minutes then shut off, leaving the fan still running?


It seems that you have a system short. 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 this doesn't help I would recommend calling a ac service company.

Lennox 10HPB36-10P is blowing luke warm air.


What coil is getting cold? In cooling the evaporator coil should be getting cold not the outdoor condensing coil. Verify you have the tstat setup for heat pump, verify you have a proper refrigerant charge.

The black plastic box is a pull-out disconnect. The more likely source of your problem is the breaker that feeds this disconnect. See if it is tripped. If so reset it.

sounds like your problem is in the air handler. Sounds like the fan is not kicking on in the air handler this could be the board or the cap or fan motor you can run a micro farad test on the cap that goes to your evap motor be sure you take the leads off the cap and the mf are written on the cap itself. does the outside suction line which is the big line starting to freeze up? you can check your motor winding by running an ohms test across the motor winding. You do this by reading on the motor which wires goes to your start and run windings. You should get and ohms reading and if they are bad you will get infinity.

I have a trane xe 800 its blowing air but not cold air, i felt the copper/bronze tube running into the unit it is luke warm also no chill at all. where should i start checking to get my house cold again.


Hello, if the pipe with insulation is luke warm then either the unit is empty of refrigerant due to leak or the compressor is not running at all. Start by going tje the outdoor unitnand checking if the compressor is running, if it is then the unit has no refrigerant, if the compressor is not running then either a bad capaitor orbthe compressor itself might be bad.
