Question about Heating & Cooling
I have a Ge 8000 Btu window air conditioner thats three years old. I only used it for a couple weeks when it was new and put it in storage. Recently I put it in the window and it blows cool air for a minute then stops blowing cool air. Its more like a fan now. I took it apart and looked on the inside and everything looked fairly clean. Any help will be greatly appreciated. It was 104 degrees today lol.
Is it LEVEL. Must be somewhat level to work effeciently. Probably had a seal in the pump dry up, worst thing for an ac is to let it set too long. Also, if you tipped it on end while moving you MUST let it set for a few hours (24 is best) before using or you risk scorching the walls of the compressor cylinder because the oil sometimes doesn't get pumped until settled back to bottom. If you can touch the copper tubing going into and out of the compressor, one should be much hotter than the other, if not either low on charge of coolant or compressor shot----if you DO have a difference in temp you probably have a bad thermostat/cycling switch.

Its Most Likely Lost Its Freon Or The Compressor Seals Are No Good When The Unit Is On See If You Hear A Whirling Sound Alot Like Your Fridge. Put Your Hand On The Compressor To See If Its Vibrating ( Looks Like A Metal Ball) If It Is Have A Ac Repair Place Check The Freon To See If It Has Run Out Or Is Low. If It Doesn't Feel Like Its Running Have Them Check The Compressor For You. Cooling System Components Should Not Be Serviced By Anyone Who Has Not Been Properly Trained To Deal With Freon.
