    How often do you change your air filter in this unit? A dirty air filter will freeze the core. this will prevent proper cooling in this case...

Check your refrigerant pressures at the outside unit. Should be approximately 68 low side and 225 high side. You may have a small leak in the refrigerant system.

Sounds like you have a restriction in your metering device, if it is a TXV it has a small screen in it that will capture debris in the system. This is a selaed system problem and unless you have proper tools will require a technician. (probably not what you wanted to heare..sorry)

The unit will not cool below 78 degrees. How do I check the freon level?


Without refrigeration gauges, you can't check your freon level. You have to check the pressure of the freon, not the level. If you are careful and have a basic knowledge of electricity and moving parts, you can get an idea if you are out of freon. If you remove the lower slotted cover from the refrigerator you will see the condensor coils. This is a radiator that has aluminum fins on the front and will have a fan running behind it. If the compressor is running this condenser coil should be hot to the touch at the top part of the aluminum fins. If the fins are covered with dust and dirt it can cause your cooler to malfunction. Also if the fan is not running the compressor will overheat and quit. If you pull the cooler away from the wall, you can see the compressor in the bottom of the cooler. There are two copper lines leading to the compressor. The small line goes to the condensor coils (the radiator) and should be hot enough to burn your finger if you have enough freon. Also the larger of the two copper lines brings the freon back to the compressor from inside the cooler. It should be cold to the touch if you have proper freon pressure. If both of those two lines feel about the same temperature, either the compressor is not running or you have no freon. BE CAREFUL! There are electrical lines and moving fan blades near the compressor, and some of the tubing gets really hot.

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.

Turn thermostat on, cooling fans kick in, i can feel compressor with my hand moving but no cooling inside freezer or fridg


Hi, you say the fan in the freezer kicks on? You also have a fan located by your compressor and coil which is the condenser fan motor and condenser coil. This fan must also be running when the compressor is on.Make sure that the coil down below is clean on the front of it as it draws air across this coil to keep the internal head pressures down. Check all of these things. The small copper line coming off the compressor, discharge line should be almost hot. The larger of the lines is the suction line and will be very cool, almost condensating . If not, you may have developed a small freon leak which will cause these problems. Make sure that everything I said is working and clean, and if the small motor in the rear bottom is not running, you can get a new one at a appliance parts house and 2 wires will replace it. Do all of this and keep me posted.

Airhandler fan runs and outside fan motor runs air handler lines


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--

Outside compressor off while handler on inside, no cooling


CHECK WIRING MAKING SURE NOTHING FELL OFF BUT IF NOT REPLACE THE MOTOR BEFORE YOU BLOW YOUR COMPRESSOR

AC wont kick on....


The first thing to check is your breaker box. There should be one double breaker for the air handler unit, that's the inside unit, and one double breaker for the compressor, that's the outside unit. Check both breakers. If you're not sure if they've be thrown, click them toward the outside of the breaker box (off position) and then click them toward the inside of the breaker box (on position). If the breakers are on and you still are not getting any A/C take a look at your compressor, (outside unit). If the fan is running at least you're getting power. However, your compressor down inside the unit may not be getting power or it may need to be replaced. The compressor has a start-up cap. If this cap goes bad or the wires from this cap fry or corrode away, this will also keep the compressor from starting but the fan will still run. If the fan is not running it could be caused by a faulty relay inside the compressor cabinet. This relay is supposed to open and close based on a low voltage signal from the thermostat. I believe it's roughly 24 volts. This relay switches on and off the 240 volts for the compressor and the compressor fan. Often this relay goes bad or the wires leading up to it fry. If you?re going to work on the unit yourself make sure all power is shut off. There should be a shutoff switch on the outside wall near the compressor. I?d also shut the breakers off.

Central ac blowing hot air outside fan not moving but making a noise


This is nothing but an either or -or ! First, make the thermostat calls for cool, there are suppose to be 2- noise outside, the fan motor and the compressor (and if a old system,a humming noise which is the contactor coil which picks up the main 240-volts).. hurry up and take a stick or something and turn the fan blades, if it picks up speed and run, then its the capicator. If not then the fan motor is bad.! (BOTTOM LINE)!
