Sounds like you have a freon leak or your compressor has stopped working. You will probably need a service tech. If it is out of freon, don't let them just add more freon, make them find and repair the leak first. Good Luck.

You need to replace the fan capacitor. Your compressor is probably in thermal overload you can cure this by turning off the disconnect your ac voltage and taking a cool water hose and running over the top of the compressor for a while. Then turn your disconnect back on and listen and feel of the big copper line to see if it gets cold and also listen to see if the compressor kicks on.

Air conditioner blows cold air, but will not cool a 1300 sq. ft. home past 75. Coils do not appear frozen and drain tube is clear.


If you have serviced the air conditioner such as cleaning the condenser coil, changing the filter, cleaning the evaporator coil and checking the refrigerant, you have done about all you can do. Most air conditioners can cool up to a 30 degree differential. If its 100 outside most units will be able to maintain approx. 70 degrees. It also depends on how tight the home construction is as well. Find out if you have ample enough insulation in the attic. This always makes a good difference. Also, is there insulation in the walls and how tight are the windows? In the middle of summer all depending what the weather is like, most air cond's are running at their peak. If you have not cleaned the outdoor condenser coil with a hose and a sprayer, you might do so. Turn the power to the unit off first. Also, have the refrigerant checked. Hope this helps.

Never got an answer to ? on a new goodman board #B1809913S. I want to know where to hook up the a/c circuits, yellow for t-stat =cool, and the cond wires. there is no terminals on the board for these...


Most of the time you would hook it up to Y on the furnace terminal strip. G would you to G which is Fan control....... But if you don't have a terminal on the furnace you can hook up the yellow wire from the thermostat Y directly to the condensor wires from the AC and the other wire from the condernsor to C common ternimal........ just make sure that the blower fan comes on with the AC or it won't cool.

Kenmore room air cond fan runs, no cool. checked


if the fan motor is on but the compressor is not : if the compressor has correct voltage up to the terminals and is not operating, the compressor is bad, if ther is not power to the terminals, the start components may be the culprit, if there is no power to the start componenets then the controller is the issue.

Window air cond unit, several years old, doesn't blow as cold


The problem with window units and any service tech will tell you it cost more to repair than you can buy at Walmart or home depot. Unless you know someone who can charge it for you. Window units are a sore subject. A 200 dollar window unit might cost 200 dollars to charge system. SORRy rusty

Ductless minisplit in old mobile home


ductless mini split units are a very good choice!  they are obviously quieter, more efficient and easier to maintain than window units. the downside is the initial expense of buying the unit, but this is paid back in eletric savings and peace of mind. Good luck Peyton
