The switch is on your thermostat - look for something that says "system" or "Em heat, heat, off, cool" switch it to "cool" and enjoy. If that doesn't work, call a HVAC service tech. You could have bigger problems than just the system switch. Good luck

Unit not working correctly. The unit worked for the winter, few days ago I turn on the AC and noticed that it wasn't cooling like it should.


It's could be the board or a heat relay. See if you have 24 volts on "x2" im assuming, emergency heat when in cool mode if so it's the board. Or unhook black or x2 or your emergency heat from board and run unit in cool. If heat stays on its a relay

Home aircondioner I don't know how how to Turn on


This ... along with your (few minutes ago entry) leads me to believe you are talking - PLAIN VANILLA Forced air... combination Heater/Air Conditioner.

You would not believe the various permutations and commutations...

At your compressor (outside) make sure it is free of all leaves, snow covers and is free to blow air through its coils.

~~

So in order to get you started I am going to assume you are at your
THERMOSTAT... inside your house (not talking automotive)...

90% of the worlds combination THERMOSTATS have a selector switch which can be as simple as "COOL" - "OFF" - "HEAT"...
on their bottom panel.

All the rest MAY add to these with other options like
"FAN" - "Emerg"... but you do NOT care because you want
"COOL".

You will also note that there is an indication of your present ambient temperature... and typically an indication of your DESIRED temperature... To work...

Your desired "COOL" temperature MUST be below your
current (ambient) temperature...

Before starting it is always a good idea to check all your outside equipment...

Good luck... with turning that AIR on.

1998 jeep wrangler blows out cool air


you can answer the valve question your self. just look, at the 2 hoses
to the heater core. its there, or not.
the 1998 is here.
see cooling and HVAC sections, as i see , (no engine stated)
there is no valve in the engine bay.
page 7-2 , see that?
then see HVAC page.
if hot water flows thru the core. then the dampers are stuck (why takes tests)
car has 3 vacuum servos, they can be watched to see if each works
page 24-38 (chapter 24 hvac, end)

in an emergancy you can force any vacuum servo to do what you want with bailing wire or tie wraps.
force dampers to heat max. no recirc, and what ever direction you want. on cars with no hot water valve, (this car)
they have a heat damper, yours is stuck closed.
the H/C lever, moves this damper, open and closed.
make it so.

HEIL HVAC, fan blows but no heat or AC


Your airconditioning system may be out of cooling gas, and if it has sufficient gas, the compressor might not pick when you put on the AC, and if the compressor did not pick ie start, you cant experience cooling effect, the fan will only be blowing.

Heat Pump - blows heat to set temp, then off, then kicks on to blow cold


Heat pumps defrost which is the AC mode, if the heat strip isnt working during a defrost, the air will be cold, A heat pump only feels warm if the heat strips are on too! the refrigeration cycles heat output is much less sensible to our 98F skin. heat pumps that satisfy a room setpoint are working at least, all heat pumps feel drafty to most.

Ac just been charged and it still blowshot air


{: ) If the a/c compressor is working and the low side pipes are cool to touch, well and good, since you have a ready source for cool air. With a normally functioning HVAC controls, the front vents should blow cold when adjusted to cold settings, on recirculate, and on face mode. Otherwise you have an air distribution malfunction. Confirm first if the low side pipes are actually cooling.
If no cool air comes out, ( or maybe it's coming out from another vent) then you have a problem with one of your HVAC actuators. You can confirm this by adjusting the knobs or buttons to every position and check if the air distribution is shifting as you intended it to be. A scan tool can pinpoint which of these actuators are stuck or not responding. It could even be the HVAC controller module itself.

MSZ-A26YV only blows air now, (no heating or cooling), no error indication. Worked all fine one day then few days later stopped. Emergency switch does the same. Looks like the external unit fails to pump...


try to check your compressor if working if not check electrical parts like capacitor. overload if defect replace. also try if compressor working observe the condensing unit fan blowing hot air if not theres possibilities of leakage of refrigerant gas need for braze leak then recharge refigerant gas. or possible compressor loose compression need for replacement.

New rth2310 themostat does not blow cool air


I don't believe you're going to get the new one to work -- sounds like it doesn't have enough control wires to operate your HVAC system. If it is designed to operate a 7-wire system, the documentation should show how to hook the 4-wire tstat so it will work.

Unit never used--won't cool


I would call and get a couple other estimates. If it has never been used, the compressor is probably not bad.
