Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Compressor runs sporadically (Hampton bay hblg5000)

The unit runs perfectly normal when I turn it on for about five minutes then it stops blowing cool air and I can hear that the compressor isn't running anymore. Even when I turn the temperature dial to highest highest setting the compressor will not come back on. I'm not sure but it seems that when the room that it is in gets really hot, the unit will resume cooling.

I have a Hampton Bay AC. It is 18,000 BTU. It is 230 volts. The EER is 9.7 and it is 8.3 to 9 amps. When I use energy mode on the AC it blows warm air. What gives? Just cool mode and it blows cool.


Hi Paul,
  • Energy Saver Mode most likely shutdown the compressor and Fan Only will be running to recirculate Ambient air into the room.
  • Make sure there is no Port or Vent that is open on your unit and would let hot air from outside be mixed in with the ambient air especially if it is hot outside.
  • Also refer to the troubleshooting section of your owner's manual.
Good Luck,
JP

My heater is blowing cold air, it is running normally. Is there a ignition reset somewhere so that I can do any troubleshooting myself?


Hi,
I think the reversing valve coil is malfunctioning - either the settings to select cool/heat is wrong or the reversing valve is stuck. It also could be the compressor not running (due to compressor failure, wire burnt off at a terminal or failed run capacitor)
Good luck

Indoor unit fan blows, then stops etc. every 1-2 minutes


At least it is cooling properly. U might just want to call Mitsubishi and ask them if it is operating normally based on your observations.

Is the compressor running? Normally the fan starts first then the compressor. You should hear it start. New units could take up two minutes. If you hear the compressor start and no cooling you have lost the refrigerant or a bad compressor.

Ac unit isn't blowing


It sounds like your freezing up at the coil, which in turn, blocks airflow across coil and only a small amount of air comes out of the vents. This also explains the cold air coming from fan on the outside unit, since the system cannot absorb the heat from the inside of the house through the coil. Your air outside is usually blowing out warm to hot air because thats the heat it rejects out of your system. I would turn the thermostat to "OFF" and turn just the fan setting to "ON" instead of Auto, this thaws the system out faster. Give it time to fully thaw, make sure filters are clean, and check airflow. If airflow is back to normal, your problem is more than likely the charge of refrigerant. If you have to call a technician out, make sure the unit is not frozen at all before they get there, they would not be able to do anything with the system froze. Hope this helps and good luck!

I have a Hampton Bay air conditioner model # HBLG 1800H. The unit is about 4 years old now. Here lately when I turn the unit on low cool it starts cooling the room and then the compressor shuts off which I...


Sounds like a bad thermal overload which opens when the compresssor gets too hot. After the compressor cools down it closes and does not re-open unyil the compressor gets hot again. Check your wiring diagram if you have one and look for a symbol like two question marks on top of one another or the letters O/L. That seems to be what is occurring here.
