I have been out of the air conditioner service sector for a while. I wanted you to know up front that I may be out of date. When running service I replaced many compressors for a fraction of the cost of a new unit. Many of these customers had been told the same thing. Service companies make allot more on a new unit than they do repairing an old one. Many don't have anyone capable of replacing a compressor. Get more than one opinion and if you replace the whole unit get more than one bid. Make sure all of the bids are for the same tonnage, or btu unit. Some lower bids are for a smaller unit that won't keep up after it has a little wear or the coils get a little dirty. If your unit is more than ten years old you should consider a new one. If not, if you can find a honest company it should be worth replacing the compressor. Replacement compressors, if installed by a certified tech, have at least a five year warranty.

Whilepool model gs6shamb00, Why a few second after the compressor shut off, the compressor knock loudly? The evap coil also shakes for 30 seconds to 1 minute. charlie T


I had accidentally overcharged a unit with freon one time (r410a freon), and when the unit stopped, the compressors rotor would spin backwards and make a loud "knocking" noise. This was on a scroll compressor, not a reciprocating compressor. Also, most compressors have a check valve, allowing freon to circulate in 1 direction only. And if it fails, when the compressor stops, the freon will rush opposite its normal direction of flow, and will sound off as a knocking noise(again, I've seen that on a scroll comp). That may make your indoor coil shake. I've seen/heard that make the copper lines shake but never the coil. Hope this helps! And FYI... Most ac service techs can check "superheat and subcool" as well as freon pressures. Without checking these 2 temperature measurements, we are just guessing as to how much freon is in the system. Make sure to ask politely beforehand for your service tech to do so PROPERLY when he checks the freon levels per factory specs, which should be on the units technical data located on the outdoor unit.

We have a Carrier 25HBA unit and we've noticed a frost build up on the outside compressor, my husband turned the unit off and cleaned everything outside and up in the attic. It worked. No frost...


Hello
Frost or ice on the bigger outside copper line is a indicatin of possible low freon.Hopfully that is all it is.

It is also a possibility the compressor is getting ready to break,bad valves.

You will need a tech to come out and charge the system with freon.

Check your filter is clean and new first.

Ro@hotmail.comtemp fridg& frezer will chang 30 to 40 degrees if you open either door it will take a long time for for temp to drop


The compressor is the part which cools the refrigerator.---------- First i will explain the working procedure of your sanyo refrigerator.---------- In the refrigerator, there is a part called compressor, the compressor is the part which cools the freezer section, When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold.--------- So the freezer section cooling/ freezing is must.If freezer is not getting properly cooled or not getting cooled, then fridge section will show the low or no cooling problem.--------------
In your refrigerator, its quite possible that compressor is got weak, nor complete faulty but little bit weak.So when you open and close the fridge or freezer door , the compressor is not that strong to maintain the required temperature.So its working hard to cool inside temperature, but its not doing it quickly as it should.---------.---------- In the compressor there is a refrigerant called FREON.With the help of this Freon the compressor cools the freezer section.Freon is a gaseous type cooling agent.The compressor will stop cooling when coolant gets leaked from its chamber.--------- Again recharging the Freon is possible, but the cost for that recharging is approx the cost of new compressor.So its always advisable to get compressor replaced.Because new compressor has warranty for few years.------------------ You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site. --------- ----------------
There is manual reset procedure, sometimes the ice gets frosted all over and blocks the ventilation's for cool air to pass from one section to another, and this also causes problem.So directly going for compressor inspection, before that you can try manual reset procedure and see if that helps.---------

The manual reset procedure is as follows : ----
First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take approx 4 to 6 hours for your refrigerator to regain its regular cooling/ freezing .So after 4 to 6 hours check , Is the refrigerator cooling properly or is it taking time or temp is dropping once you open close door. If this problems are not noticed, then reset procedure has helped.------- But if same problem is noticed after reset procedure is followed, then you can get the compressor checked. -------- This should help. Thanks.Helpmech.

A/c is blowing but it is not cool air will freon


Hi, so you have a central air split system, with the gas furnace in the attic and the condenser outdoors. Unless you had a service tech out and told you your system was shot, you more then likely just have a problem with the outdoor unit. Yes, it may be a freon problem and it needs a charge, or some minor problem in one of the electrical circuits not bringing on the compressor so there would be no cooling. $6,000 sounds about right for a complete system, but I don't believe at all that's what you need. If you are familar with electrical, or you are able to go to the outdoor unit to see if you can hear the compressor running, and the outdoor fan is on, this is the place to start. Look it over, turn the unit on and make sure the blower is coming on in the attic. If so, make sure the outdoor unit is up and running. You can take off a panel and hear the compressor to see if it is on. If so, its very possible it is just low on freon. You will have 2- copper lines coming out of this unit. Place your hand on the large line and see if it is nice and cold and even wet, condensation. The smaller line will be much warmer, even hot if its running ok. If you find that the compressor is on and the line is warm, sounds like it may just be a leak and you should call and get a tech out to check this for you. It may be many things, but check to make sure that what I have told you is ok, and keep me posted. Until we find out what is going on, don't let them tell you you need to install a complete system. I am sure you were just checking. Please give me the model and serial number, and name of the outdoor unit if you would be so kind. And the age and over all condition that you think it may be in, like the last time it was serviced. I will wait to hear back from you, so we can get this up and running.
Sincerely,

Unit turns on,compressor runs,evap and cond clean,fan runs,will not blow cool


two things that may be the problem. 1. there may be a clog in the metering device in the unit preventing the freon from ciculating through the unit. The repair for this is to evacuate the freon from the unit and have the meter ing valve replaced (an a/c tech can do this for a minimal charge). 2. the unit is low enough on freon to prevent cooling but not cause the compressor to go into thermal overload.
I would have the freon level checked before I went any further

Good luck hope this helped

For my thesis: 5 condenser problems and 5 solutions


Problem number one.

condenser fan won't come on. solution check the capacitor if good ohm out the fan to see if it is bad. If bad replace fan motor with new one.

2. compressor will not come on. solution check the contactor to see if engaging this applies to problem 1 also. If engages check the capacitor on the herm side if it is bad replace. If good check compressor to see if the compressor is bad. Should it be bad replace compressor.

3. High head pressure not cooling properly dirty condenser coils. Clean coils. With hose and water.

4. Low head pressure frosting accruing on suction line. Check freon levels. Also check inside air filter for being dirty.

5. Condenser unit is failing to come on. solution check the power source check the contactor should the main power be bad check main breaker and replace any slow blow fuses that are bad. Should the contactor be bad check transformer to ensure 24 volts going to secondary side on contactor. Inspect the two wire going to outside unit condenser. replace any broken wire any bad transformer or bad contactor.

Changed Compressor not blowing cold enough


If you tried using a refrigeration "sealing" product before changing out the compressor, you most likely do need to replace the expansion valve.

The valve "flutters" open/close/open/close/etc/etc when in operation. The purpose is to allow the compessor to build up enough pressure to change the freon to a gaseous state. Once you put in the sealer, the valve becomes plugged with the product and cannot seat completely. After this happens, you never get a full phase change because the pressure cannot build up enough. You will experience reduced cooling. Change the Exp. valve and you'll be set. In the future, it is not advisable to ever use the sealer products as this can cause damage to other system parts, and especially the recovery units at the shop.
