How old is the unit?,and can you hear the compressor start?does the compressor seem to cycle a lot(i.e. compressor starts and stops and starts again) you could be low on refrigerant,contactor on compressor bad,or plugged so you have a superheat condition,if thats the case feel both inlet and outlet tubes on evaporator coil, they should both be cold and nearly the same temp.

Check the supply air tempeture and the retun air temp.. to do this you put a termitor where the air come out and take the temp. then you check the air at the return where it goes back to the blower. you shoudl see a 15-20 degree diffrence. the oterh thing MIGHT be that cold air is heavier than warm air so it sinks down stairs. close off all the rooms upstairs might help .

Let see if I can help. The numbers don't come up so we'll just try your information.

Exhaust - should be closed when using for Air Conditioning
Energy savings turns the fan off with the compressor when set for Air Conditioning
Fan Only means just that (no Air Conditioning)

Fan speeds Quite same as low, Norm same as medium, Super same as High
Temp settings, what the thermostat senses before cycling compressor.

Hello, I have a split level Samsung AC unit. Recently the outside unit formed ice on it, so i had a tech look at it and he said that it was freon low level prob, so we got the level back up and it ran for...


Yes it is! These are sealed systems, so if the tech made no effort in locating your leak, it will continue to loose freon. We are required by the E.P A. law, to make every effort we can to locate the freon leak. We can get away the first time, but always check for any signs of leakage. How much freon did he add? Should say on the service order as we charge by the lb. Look on the data plate on the outdoor unit to see what it holds, and compare how much was added. The compressor is working overtime trying to keep up. I would schedule a leak check to take care of the problem. They will not let us keep coming out to add freon with out finding the leak, its changed so much do to our o-zone layer. Please rate me on my help to you.

The E.P.A. keep records of our freon use, and where it goes.

Thermostat resets itself to 85 degrees a couple hours after I set it to 74 degrees


To manually operate the thermostat set the system to cool and fan to auto then press the HOLD button one time then release, you will see the hold word on the screen after that up the UP or DOWN arrows is setting the desired temperature.

Air condition jsut 10 month old ... not keeping up whith cooling


If it's only 92° outside and the unit won't cool the house, then the unit is either to small or it's low on refrigerant. They are designed to cool a house with outdoor temperatures up to 115° to 120°.Usually you need one ton a/c for every 400 square feet of house, but, you have to take into account for average outdoor temperature and humidity, windows, doors, especially sliding glass or patio doors and which side of the house they are on, insulation in walls and attic.
The air leaving your duct work going into the rooms should be about 20° lower than the room temperature, if you have a 80° room then the air leaving the duct should be around 60°. if it is then the unit is probably to small if, everything is working properly.

I bought a Lg 11,500 btu air conditioner yesterday at home depot. It has been set on 60 degrees with the fan on high and will only bring my room temp down to 79....it does not feel cool


An 11'500 btu Is appr. 1 ton of cooling capacity or enough to cool approximatly 450 sq ft of floor area. Be sure to read the instructions of course and be sure that all the packaging material was removed that may be restricting airflow. On high you should be able to easily feel the air blowing 10-15 ft from the unit and the air should be dropping about 15- 20 degrees when it exits the unit. So if the room temperature is 85 degrees the air exiting the unit should be around 65 -70. The amount of time it takes to cool the entire room depends on how big the room is and how much and the intensity of the heat infiltrating the room and the number and heat output of appliances and people in the room. Hope this helps you out GL!
