Low refrigerant will cause this issue, as well as plugged coils, and a failed compressor.
Without gauges, all you can do to leak check is to examine the inside and outside coils for oily spots, indicating where the leak likely is. If you find any such spots, you can confirm by filling a sprey bottle with water and a dash of detergent. Mix well and spray onto the tubing, coils, etc. Leake will present in the form of a stream of bubbles, unless you are completely out of refrigerant, which is rarely the case. To check/clean the coils inside, trip the breaker and turn the thermostat switch to off. Open the cabinet by removing the screws. If you see heavy buildup on the air inlet side of the coils, you can get coil cleaner at Lowes/similar and apply. A medium bristled brush helps in removing the debris, but care must be taken not to damage the fins on the coil. Rinse thoroughly after application, following the directions. If you are cleaning the outside coils, again, trip the breaher/service disconnect and remove the top. Flush from the inside toward the outside with a garden hose, unless the debris is tightly packed and will not wash out, in which case service would normally be needed. It will usually wash out.
Compressor failure must be diagnosed by a tech. Usually, low refrigerant will prevent the compressor's coming on, that is, usually a switch in the refrigerant circuit is preventing it's operation. Less likely, but always possible, is that there is the failure of a component on the circuit board or power relay. Ants have been hnown to keep a power relay from operating properly, along with other components.
Best regards, and happy hunting...hope this helps you. --W/D--

Heat pump problems


Some heat pumps have high and low pressure swiches installed to keep compressor from running when unsafe conditions occur that can damage the compressor. If the outside fan is not turing on, the unit is cycling on high pressure, if you see ice forming on the big refrigerant line coming from the air handler, then the compressor is shutting down on low pressure. Low pressure can be cause by lack of air flow through air handler or from a low refrigerant charge.

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.

My whirlpool acq128xp0 runs great one day, then barely starts the second day, It doesnt have the air volume or cooling it use too. Just started this year. Mike


Mike, when you stated it barely starts, to what are you referring? The compressor (condenser) section has an issue when starting or the indoor fan is hard to start?

If the fan does run, and the condenser unit outside is operating and you are getting lower than usual air flow (compared to previously), you may have a dirty filter, or you may have other obstructions at the evap coil inside the furnace or air handler. It could also be the unit is freezing up and ice on the evap coil is cutting down the air flow. Chances are if the coil is freezing over, you will have two issue that cause this:

Air flow issues (dirty coil, clogged air filter, or other obstructions across the evap coil, such as a plastic bag or pet hair, dust, ect.) which will also cause the coil to freeze over.

The other issue that would cause the low air flow is ice that is a result of low refrigerant.

If the system ran fine in the past, I will rule out it may be inproperly sized. Have you recently had a fan motor replaced on the indoor unit. If so, and they under sized the fan motor, then it could be the fan is not drawing, or blowing enough air across the evaporator coil and this will cause it to freeze over.

Look for ice on the suction line (piping) which is the bigger of the two lines coming from the outside unit (condensing unit). It is also the line that has the insulation covering it. If it has ice on it, then freezing is occuring on the evaporator. If so, then airflow issues, or refrigerant levels are usually the main culprits.

The two lines (suction and liquid) running between your indoor and outdoor unit should feel the following way to the touch of your hand:

Suction should be cold and possibly sweating if exposed (in places where no insulation is present).

Liquid line (smaller line) should be warm to the touch, but not too hot, or too cool. Should feel close to the outside ambient temperature if felt by hand.

Look these issues over and let me know.

The small line coming in from the outside unit should be warm to hot and the larger line should be cool and sweating with water forming on it. I am taking for granted that the unit was working if so it sounds as if the unit is low on freon. your inside coil should be sweating a lot from top to bottom if it is only cool or sweating on the bottom but less to nothing up top you are low on freon. When very low the unit will stop working just like a broken valve in the compressor. If it is just a little low it will not cool properly and at night it might even freeze the inside coil up.

Hi,
I hope you are good at electric becaue you are biting off a chunk here...

Why does my fan runs continus. and the condenser won't run out side.


The fan runs continously because your condensor is not kicking on and removing the heat. The thermostat needs to come under the set temp. to kick off the fan. If your compressor doesn't run and the fan on the outside unit does run, your compressor has an issue. If nothing runs outside, then your transformer on the inside unit(air handler) has an issue. This could also be a control relay on the condenser or the air handler.

Ac fan on, blowing air, but not cold


Check outside unit if unit and compressor are running feel the large line to see if it is cold. If compressor is running and line is not cold possible charge problems. You may have a capacitor problem outside. they go out quite often. You can change this yourself, Open up outside unit and the cap is the silver bullet with terminals out the top. Bad cap can cause compressor to not operate and also the fan. You need to clean the coil inside or at leat check the coil to see if it is clean. You can clean theis with a toilet brush do not go against the coil bit brush with the fins. You may need to call a service tech but try these options first. russ
