    Need more info. Is outside unit running? Indoor fan blowing? What's the temp. outside? What's the thermostat set at. When you check the outdoor unit make sure not only the fan is running on top, but the compressor is inside. You may need to turn it off at the disconnect and then back on to listen for the compressor start up.

Hot hot is it outside? is this a new system or somewhat older system? Do you know the S.E.E.R rating on the outside unit? Do you have any refrigeration gauges? CHeck outside and feel the bigger of the copper lines thats coming through the house. Does it feel warm? is it iced up? Does it feel somewhat cold? There can be several things. If its really hot outside then its probably not keeping up with the heatload inside the house. You can be low on Refrigerent charge. Evaporatore coils can be plugged and iced up.

It could be that the A/C has a slow leak from sitting without use (usually over the winter months) and you've lost some freon and the unit requires a recharge.

Another thing to check, but shouldn't really be causing this problem, unless really blocked is to make sure is to put in a new air filter. You need to change them every 2-3 months if using the better quality pleated ones during the heating and A/C seasons.

I'm betting on the A/C needing a charge of freon to get things cooling better. Unfortunatley, this will require a certified A/C tech, since you have to be trained and licensed to perform this type of service. (unless you have the recharging gauges and some freon available to you and know how to get the right amount into the unit.

Hope this helps, best regards!

Goodman gph1348m41ac unit is blowing cool air in heat mode with mid 30s ambient outdoor temp. I turn it off then on and will usually blow warm air but this cycle is becoming more repetitive. any expert...

A heat pump on the optimal heating day (about 50 degrees ambient) will only deliver approximately 85 degree air as compared to 125 degree air from a fossil fueled furnace. The colder the outdoor air is the less heat there is available to be transferred to the living space. At 30 degrees, the heat transfer capability is getting close to negligible meaning the run cycles will be approaching continuous and eventually as the heat pump along cannot maintain setpoint, the outdoor stat or stats will bring on auxilliary heat in the air handler.

If your ambient temp is below the 'balance point' of the heat pump, the house temp will drop a little lower and most times energize the heat strips through the outdoor t-stat. Your outdoor stat could be set too low for the heat pump to carry the structure all the way down to the balance point so when you turn it off and back on, the lower indoor temp automatically brings on the heat pump plus a heat strip or two, thus the warmer air. Second stage on the stat satisfies due to the heat strip, drops them out of the circuit and the heat pump is left running on first stage heat delivering the perceived cold air.

Your outdoor stat could also be not functioning correctly and not allowing the heaters to come on until the system is turned back on reestablishing the two stage call for heat.

Tons of possibilities and not enough room to list....

My frigidaire freezer is set at 4 farenheit, frequently it changes by itself to -8 ????? have to remove ice or check goods inside

Hello Carlos Rojas, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire refrigerator has been having some cooling issues. It sounds like a potential issue with your control panel or thermostat. I recommend performing a reset on your refrigerator which you can do by disconnecting the power cord for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help correct the issue I would advise to seek assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

I have a Goodman CKL24-1k air conditioner. I live in a townhouse in Louisiana on the 2nd and 3rd floors. I set the temperature to about 73 degrees during the day so I can sleep bc I work the graveyard...

I lost you at my the end but the 2 ton unit should be able to cool 960 sqft. Sounds like a refrigerant problem. Air conditioners should cool the air 15 to 20 degrees. This means 80 degrees going into the machine in the return should be 60 to 65 degrees coming out in the supply. If you are in that range than it's likely never going to cool the space.
