Question about Sanyo Split System Air Conditioner

AC Wont blow cold air

I currently live in Japan, very humid and hot here. I went to turn on my bedroom AC last night and it seems to only blow air, not cold air. I just recently cleaned it. Other web sources say that I just need to add some freon, is that it? If so where and how would I place freon into the AC unit? I just want to make sure before I go though the hassle of trying to find where to get freon in a country that dose not speak English.

I don't know how the rules are in Japan but in the USA you have to have an CFC certification from the EPA to buy refrigerant unless it's the little cans to recharge your car a/c. There are other reasons for the air to be warm also. Like the compressor not running.

Why does my heat blow warm air then it turns cold


its VERY likely that your heater core is getting stopped up.

The heater in your car works by circulating hot water from the engine into a copper or aluminum pipe coiled up in the dashboard. The heater/airconditioner's fan blows across it and the hot air comes out of the vents. This is why the heater doesn't work right away when you first start the car. It usually won't work until the hot/cold needle in the gauges is starting to rise up.

If your mechanic recently replaced the thermostat, its possible that there is air in the system which will result in less antifreeze in the car than it should be. If this is not the case, the heater core is probably stopping up and will require expensive replacement if it cannot be flushed clean.

Check to make sure the car is full of antifreeze IN THE RADIATOR, AND THE OVERFLOW JUG. Please be very sure there is NO AIR in the cooling system as well.

WE ARE CURRENTLY IN NORTHERN TERRITORY VERY HOT AND HUMID. RUNNING AC THRU THE NIGHT IT STOPS BLOWING COLD AIR AND FAN SEEMS TO BE NOISY. HAS IT ICED UP DUE TO THE HUMIDITY. UNIT BEING RUN THRU THE DAY NO...


If your coil is freezing at night, it sounds like your getting cold enough at night to have your saturation temperature drop below the design of what the AC is able to do. If it runs all day without an issue and freezes up at night, you need to add what is called an outdoor fan cycling switch. This will turn the condenser fan off when the saturation temperature drops so it will not freeze your coil at night. You need to have an HVAC technician install this. It is not a DIY projuect since it has adjustments that need to be right. Plus, it it's a heat pump, it needs to drop the switch off in the winter.

AC blowing warm


Is it that hot in Sedona. I live in Tucson and thats hot. Have your freon recharged. You can buy the refrigerant at Checker or AutoZone. How do you like our Governor. She really made the national news.

sounds like there is not enough r134 coolant in the system and when your slowing down the compressor stops turning. Have someone add some coolant and you should be ok.

Window unit air conditioner kicks in only when its really hot out


I would consider replacing the t'stat if it does not seem to cycle at the desired temps. Also, the outside air allows fresh air to be introduced into the conditioned space but it will also effect, to a degree, the units ability to cool the conditioned space. Once you get the unit running, try it with the baffle on and closed and see which one you like. Remember, the outside air has and add humidity and can make it seem hotter than it really is in the room.

Air compressor does not kick in unless ambient temp is > 80


Do not operate low fan and maximum temperature as the coils will freeze up stopping air flow.

MY HAIER A/C IS NOT GETTING COLD


I have a fairly new Haier Air Condition that I bought last year, it has been working good up until last night. I keep this one in my bedroom and put it on every night since the summer. Last night I woke up very warm, the temp reading was 75 the AC did nothing but blow out just air. I threw away the booklet on it because I've had no problem up until now. Does anyone know how I can make it cold again. HELP!!!!
