First thing to do is change the filter and clean the outside of the unit. Next, check and see if you hear the compressor running. If the condensor coils are frozen then turn off your unit and use a blow dryer to help it defrost. Check and change the thermostat control if faulty

Hi

There could be many causes of this the evaporator coil could be clogged with dust and need cleaning. The indoor blower cloud be going out the Freon. This could have escaped if it was a sudden thing and the air is still coming out but just isn't cold, then the problem is likely the outside unit find out which one is your turn on the AC check and see if the outside unit is running. If not it could be a breaker, the relay, or the capacitor call an AC technician.
Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.

My AC some times blows cool air with good pressure but most of the time blows air with low pressure. I have checked the AC pipe also. Its cool.


I'm wondering if it's NOT the AC but the blower fan, how does the heat side blow? if it's good on all blower settings then, it's more than likely your blender door is not opening and closing all the way. When the blender door stays open a little bit it'll let warmer outside air mix with the cold AC air causing it not to be as cold as it should.

Not staying cool


sounds like it is either low on Freon or the compressor is going out. The blowing ice cold is an indicator that it may be freezing up because the low Freon. when it stops blowing cold, turn it to fan only mode and see if it gets colder again. If that is the case then the unit is low on freon and freezing up. I know that sounds confusing but that is how AC works. The low freon pressure means the gas is expanding too fast and the air flow cannot take up the cold from the evaporator fast enough. Turning the compressor off and keeping the fan on will alow the room air to take up the cold.

My coleman central electric furnace only blows cool air


The AC unit outdoors must be running and rejecting heat by its air flowing through it the 2 copper lines are the refrigerant lines, the fatter one should be "beer can cold" if not its low on refrigerant or not running.

My air conditioner isnt blowing cold air


is the ac a manual one or automatic? if it's manual then it froze and will no longer work. it froze and is all done working. time for a new one. I bought one 12 years ago and apparently I was suppose to turn on and off. The ac couldn't do that. IF it works on it's own maybe the circuit isn't the higher amp for 220 ac units.

My new ac unit isnt blowing out cold enough


What's the temp been out side? If its over 95 degrees only expect you air to blow at about 75. It's an air conditioner not a cold air maker.

Ac unit isn't blowing


It sounds like your freezing up at the coil, which in turn, blocks airflow across coil and only a small amount of air comes out of the vents. This also explains the cold air coming from fan on the outside unit, since the system cannot absorb the heat from the inside of the house through the coil. Your air outside is usually blowing out warm to hot air because thats the heat it rejects out of your system. I would turn the thermostat to "OFF" and turn just the fan setting to "ON" instead of Auto, this thaws the system out faster. Give it time to fully thaw, make sure filters are clean, and check airflow. If airflow is back to normal, your problem is more than likely the charge of refrigerant. If you have to call a technician out, make sure the unit is not frozen at all before they get there, they would not be able to do anything with the system froze. Hope this helps and good luck!

Water dripping out of rv ac into rv.


Is it a ducted system? If yes, check that there isn't gaps between the divider that separates return air at the front, with forced(cold) air. You can usually use a flashlight and look for gaps, or even (very carefully) feel it blowing cold into the warm air return. If you find some gaps, buy some foil tape, and tape them off good and retry and see if it still happens. Some older units experienced cracks in drip trays that allowed condensation to drip inside as well. Get back to me with year of your RV, and whether it's ducted or non-ducted system, and perhaps I can guide you better on what to look for.

My girlfriends 2003 beetle,s ac does not blow cold air. This happened after an issue with low coolant. Is there any connection here, or is there other potential causes?


does it blow cold ac when the car is started after sittin overnight? if it does and gradually gets warmer as the car warms up, then you may have an air bubble in your cooling system caused by the low coolant level. if it blows warm anytime, then your ac system may need to be inspected or recharged.

My Carrier Home AC unit stopped blowing cold air today. I opened it up and cleaned everything and didn't notice anything out of place, any ideas?


This could be complicated to resolve over the internet but I'll give it a try. When you stated that it stoped blowing cold air, did it stop blowing air all together? Also is the outside unit rtunning?
