Sounds like the compressor is 'short-cycling,' i.e. runs for a little bit then goes off and keeps repeating the cycle - hence the term 'short-cyling.'

The most common cause of this is is 'low on refrigerant,' which is easily fixed by adding some refrigerant.

This usually takes a Service Tech because you will need gauges, refrigerant and technical knowledge.

good luck!

Why can't I lower my honeywell 8500 below 67 on cool?


With a two story house you have to be aware that cold air flows downwards so any cold air coming from an ac unit will flow downstairs( normally down the stairway) so unless you can close off the down stairs then the up stairs unit will be cooling downstairs as well. Ac units have a thermostat located in the air intake and it cools until the cold air has risen to that point. In effect the space above the ac unit will be hotter than the floor. Knowing how they work ,you can see that the upstairs unit will never reach the set temperature because the cold air is continually heating from the house and will never get to the top thermostat.
So your solutions are
1-- fit controls that restrict the cold air from leaving the upper floor (Doors)
2--don't run the upper ac unit unless you are living up there (waste of money
)3 place an ac in each upper room and keep the room door closed

Maytag m6x06f2a like new but doest blow cold air


Make sure the Thermostat is set correctly! The problem with mine was the temp in the house was colder than my A/C lowest thermostat setting.I had my AC temp setting on 66 degrees.The temp in the house was a little lower so the AC didnt kick on just the fan blowing cool air and no compressor working. The next day it was warmer out and the house temp was 79. So when I powered up the AC set at 66 i heard the compressor kick in and the AC worked fine.

2002 Lexus es300 electrical cooling fan shuts on and off with ac on


Hi Dennis, When the AC is selected an additional cooling fan should cut in to cool the additional requirements of the condenser radiator, mounted in front of the radiator cooling the engine. If the operation of the AC fan is intermittent the most probable cause is a defective control relay or a loose connection. The relays are easy to find, being in a housing usually marked on top of the outside. Regards John

AC not cooling during the day


Your AC cooling efficiency is low when he ambient temperature is high and naturally it cools well when the outside temperature drops.

Please remove the filter on the grill and try to clean it under the tap water and after removing all the dust fix it back to the unit. This would increase the cooling efficiency of the unit.

Your AC is also five years old. Please avoid frequent opening of doors or windows.

Ensure that the exhaust fan and the blower of your unit are functioning normal.

The technician might not have done a proper job in fixing the area where the refrigerant would have leaked out. Please check the refrigerant pressure to ensure that no further refrigerant leak has taken place. Or even servicing your unit he would have punchered the tubes resulting in very slow leak of refrigerant resulting in no cooling or less cooling. It takes around a month to feel the pinch of it and the refrigerant. One fine morning after sometime the unit will run and it would start throwing hot air instead of cool breeze!

My rooftop Trane A/C unit shows high humidity on the thermostat, will not cool the house during the day but cools fine at night. What could the problem be? Also, how can I lower the humidity in the house?


High humidity causes Icing of the cooling coils. Avoid constant running of the a/c. Meaning let the AC pull the house dow 2 - 3 degrees at a time.. The unit shutting off will allow the ice to melt. Make sure the drain is clear by going outside and chkg for drainage. Once the house is reasonably dehumidified the ac can be set and left on its own.

Wow, your problem description is quite broad. There are a variety of factors that may cause your AC to not cool your house. With that said, given your ambiguous description, I can offer you a diagnostic article that provides the most probable causes of your AC's failure to cool your house, and from there you can read it and then, step by step, rule out each possible cause listed in the article:

AC unit outside turns on but no air blows through the vents


The first problem sounds like the wiring is wrong up at the heating unit not turning on the blower fan in the heater when you call for cooling. Most typical is either something has chewed the wires or the wires have been stripped b something else. The AC not cooling your house can be either it is low on freon or the system is to small for your house. Also check your filter and make sure that it is not blocked and everything is clean with the filter
