Getting unit ready to store.....should I take the drain plug out of the unit while I run the unit 3 to 4 to dry the inside of the unit


first of all you're talking about the humidifier correct? You should always drain things out if your especially if you're going to store them outside as you don't want them to freeze. Running it for little bit should have running it for little bit should not be necessary as the moisture just collects on the condensing coils and drips into the receptacle below so running it for a while will do nothing but cause them to collect condensation on the coils which then you have to drain back out again.... so in short to store it remove the air filter if it has one and most to wash it was soap and water let it dry empty the condensate tank let it dry put it all back together and store. I hope this helps you.

KNOWING ABOUT CONDENSER


What is a condenser?
Is a device or unit used to condense vapor into liquid. A condenser is simply one component of an air conditioner. Whether you have an outdoor air conditioner or a window unit air conditioner your air conditioner contains a condenser.
Condensers are used in outdoor air conditioning systems as well as heat pump systems. Condensers in an air conditioning unit have very few controls. They will have an on and off switch. Occasionally these air conditioners will also have a brown out option. This option shuts down the compressor when the electrical current is low.
A condenser is simply a heat exchanger. It compresses refrigerants into a hot gas to then condense them into a liquid. A condenser is a major component in a air conditioning or heat pump unit. It moves air across the coils to facilitate the transfer of heat.
In a heat pump unit the condenser has a few more features. It will have a reverse valve that allows the unit to switch back and forth between air conditioning and heating. Even when the unit is heating, it uses the condenser for defrosting the coils. If the coils become layered with frost it will effect the units effectiveness this is defrosted when the reverse valve switches to air conditioning mode to move the hot gases through the coils melting the built up ice. It will automatically switch back to heating mode once the ice is cleared to once again heat the home.
To keep your unit in good operating condition it is vital to keep the area around the condenser clear of all debris as well as keeping the filter clear of dust and dirt. A clean machine makes a happy machine. A happy machine will keep you cool during the summer months and warm during the cold months. It is suggested to change the units filters when they become dirty, depending on your area and conditions near your home this may be as often as once a month or as seldom as every 3 to 6 months. You will have to pay close attention to your units needs to decide the right time to change or clean your unit’s filters.
It is very important no matter what type of unit you have to prevent the blockage of the condenser. If the condenser becomes block it can effect the units efficiency or even cause the until to completely fail. For this reason it is one of the most important components of a cooling or heating system. A condenser allows the maximum airflow to the unit.
Keeping you condenser in good running condition will not only prolong the life of your heat or cooling system but also provide you with the most efficient heat and cooling system saving you money on heat and cooling.www.victorwod1234.blogspot.com

Can I put a lower amp fan motor on a condenser if the one has a higher amps


Jason,

You air conditioning system is designed as an entire unit. All the parts were selected to work together.

The condenser fan motor has been selected to match system voltage, provide enough horsepower and RPM to spin the a fan with "x" number of fan blades with fan blade pitch or angle that will pull enough air across the condenser coil to cool the hot refrigerant gas enough so that by the time it reaches the expansion valve it will be in the ideal temperature range to provide maximum cooling in the evaporator coil.

Changing components with unlike replacements creates strain, inefficient cooling and potentially early failure of parts.

Sounds like dripping water when on


Water, or in this case - condensation will be created and drip from the cooling coils inside the unit outdoors, if installed correctly. This is a normal condition. Like a cold glass of water sitting on a table or counter on a hot, muggy day; condensation will form. The amount of condensation forming on the glass - and cooling coils of the A/C - is directly related to the amount of humidity in the air.

Some A/C units have fans that not only force cool air out the front of the unit - but also spray condensate on the condenser coils (the coils that get hot and are visible from the outside) to help cool them down.

If water is dripping indoors - the A/C is tilted inward or drain holes on the bottom edges of the rear (outdoors) are clogged. Adjust the A/C support(s) so that it is tilted back (the bottom rear should be about 1/2" or 10mm lower than the bottom front) and inspect & clear obstructions from the drain holes as needed.

I hope this helps & good luck!

My Danby A/C unit makes these loud (almost) grinding noises when in Cooling mode and I try to lower the temp. Do I need to put water in the machine to allow the Cooling to start? I have both the vents...


No, the bucket is to catch condensate off the cooling coil, make sure the make sure the condensate pan is in correctly, it activates a switch for cooling. this sounds like a possible return to store

Unit does not cool. Original unit was replaced because of defective compressor. Replacement unit worked in store but now does not cool and alternates blowing cool and warm air.


Is this a window unit? Sounds like the compressor may be cutting on and off. That would cause the alternating air temp you are feeling. Make sure the condenser fan is running. If it isn't running head pressure will build up on the compressor until it shuts down. Then the pressure will equalize and the compressor will kick on again. Also check your filters and the condenser coil to make sure it is clean. Let me know what you find.

I have a frigidaire freezer upright model#ffu20f9gw3


Without any additional info, there are a lot of possibilities:
1. Condenser coil (underneath unit) is dirty and clogged.
2. Compressor is failing. (need A/C tech)
3. Metering device is clogged. (need A/C tech)
4. Refrigerant charge is low. (need A/C tech)
5. Door seal is broken (frost will form around door).
6. Defrost heaters are stuck on (replace defrost timer located underneath unit at front).
7. Condenser fan has failed (underneath freezer on back).
8. Evaporator fan (inside fan) has failed (ice will form on cooling coil).

This should get you started...

If this helps you, please select YES to the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

Goldstar GWDH 5000 does not cool after storing this winter


sounds like low freon or a blockage in one of the lines, especially since the you say only one row of coils is cool. usually window a/c's have at least a 1-year warranty and since you are pretty close to that, the manufacturer may honor it. if not you will need to have the system fitted with a bullet piercing valve on the low side lines and see if the unit is low on freon with proper gauges. if it is not showing low then there is probably a blockage and the high side should be checked as well. if this unit was an expensive one it could be worth having it repaired. a simple recharge may cost less than a replacement, but anything else probably won't.
