    Make notes of how wires connect before attempting to replace, if you require assistance and have monkeyed with it in advance it will cost ya.

I don't have exact experience with your system, but I have helped friends with similar ones. On some systems, a coil is mounted on the right side of the unit, often outside the unit. This coil is the feed for the blower fan, and often fails due to heat, over time. Therefore, when the unit tries to turn it on, it will try to supply voltage to the blower motor, but then fail, since coils inside the unit have shorted the thin lacquer on the copper windings. Replacing the coil is usually straight-forward, however, there may be an extra tab or two on the replacement coil that can be cut off or bent to accomodate the physical fit. Just make sure the extra tabs are only connected to the casing by verifying with a voltmeter.

Why does the external unit go between extracting hot and cold air without any setting changes?.


if you have your air conditioning on an "automatic mode"
You set the temperature and the unit will decide what it has to do to achieve this temperature, ie heat or cool, the unit will the switch back and forth to try and maintain rhe set point temperature, this is totally normal,

Why is the AC still running after the set temp has been reached?


You may be hearing the fan run. Normally the fan will run 30-90 seconds after the unit has reached temperature to give you the air that you just paid to condition.
If it is actually the a/c running, that is because the thermostat internally reads in tenths of a degree. So when you set it to say 70 degrees, it is really set to 70.0 degrees. The thermostat will show 70 degrees when it reaches 70.5 degrees and continue to run all the way to 70.0 degrees

I have a heat pump and it freeze up


If you are referring to the outside unit freezing up, the issue is in the defrost cycle. The defrost cycle works something like this: The unit reverses the flow of freon causing the inside coil to blow cold air into the conditioned space and the outside coil is now working like an a/c unit, it gets warm to melt the frost/ice. The inside unit electric heat strips come on so you do not notice the cold air being blown in. The fan on the outside unit stops running to allow the coil to get good and warm.
Now the unit should go into the defrost cycle every 90 minutes or so. It should not terminate the cycle untill the coil is clear of frost. There is an "Klixon" type termostat that measures the temperature of the outside coil. This is most likely the problem. It is prematurely terminating the defrost cycle. I'd start there first.

Hope this helps, Let me know if I can be of any further help.

Leaks water inside the refrigirator part. It ices and eventually leaks to the bottom part! We keep the fridge at a normal temperature! 38degrees. please help! is there a recall to solve the problem!


The unit has an automatic defrost system that defrosts the fridge automatically when frost develops or when certain conditions are met.
  1. Defrosting starts when the compressor running time reaches 4 hours after a power outage or after the unit is turned on for the first time.
  2. Defrosting starts each time the compressor running time reaches 7 hours.
  3. Defrosting stops if the sensor temperature reaches 46.4°F(8°C) or more. If the sensor doesn’t reach 46.4°F(8°C) in
    2 hours, the defrost mode is malfunctioning.
  4. Defrosting will not function if its sensor is defective or wires are cut or short circuited.
If your unit defrosts frequently even when the conditions above are not met, you have a malfunctioning sensor. You may have to ask the help of a qualified technician to disassemble and:
  1. Check the connections of the sensor to the control board.
  2. Inspect the wires for short or cut wire.
  3. Push the reset button on the main board.
  4. Replace the sensor control assembly.

Unit not coming on. air isn't getting cold


First check the breakers for the condensing unit (outside unit) and the disconect outside by the unit (could be a breaker ,a pull off/on switch or fuses)If its ok , you should have 220 ,240 volts to the unit contactor (you'll see it after removing the cover on the condensing unit).When the termostat is in the cold position and the temperature its set is lower than the one inside the house the contactor should be pulled in and give power to the compresor and the fan.But if the termostat is in the cooldest set and the blower inside the house works and the contactor in the condensing unit is not pull in the problem is in the termostat or in the low voltage wire.
