The temp sensor is located on the upper rear just behind the air filter. Slide the filter out and give it a cleaning. Look for a small wire visible. Inspect the temp sensor; it gets dusty.

If the hose was leaking you would feel the heat in the room.

Let see if I can help. The numbers don't come up so we'll just try your information.

Exhaust - should be closed when using for Air Conditioning
Energy savings turns the fan off with the compressor when set for Air Conditioning
Fan Only means just that (no Air Conditioning)

Fan speeds Quite same as low, Norm same as medium, Super same as High
Temp settings, what the thermostat senses before cycling compressor.

Temp is reading HI so stove won't come on. Figure it is a thermostat problem(?)


This means the room temperature is over 95F. This could be due to the sensor being in the sun or the sensor is shorted. Try unplugging the thermostat wire and see if it goes away. If it does you may need a new thermostat wire.

The AC doesn't seem to cool when the temperature in the room in really high, in the range of 90-95F. It works for 3 minutes, and then stops for 3 minutes. Also, I have read the booklet that came with it,...


Hi,
What happens is that the high pressure side gets too high when the temps are very high...that is why it is shutting down....without getting very technical there are good reasons why they would set this unit up to work at temperatures 95 and below...
try to get the room temperatures below 95 and then make sure you leave it run so that itmaintains rather then shutting it down and trying to reagin the cool again... this is actually more efficient if you are not away for days at a time...
So yes, that is very normal...

AC was cooling fine. Now, won't cool room even though cool air comes out. Exhaust hose is extremely hot.


Check filter, if you have a 5000BTU unit (small) and it is extremely hot, then it wont work great for a big room. BTU is the rate of what the AC will put out. 5000 BTU is good for a small single room. 10,000 will cool a bigger room and 18,000 btu is meant to cool a home.

Thermastat is reading colder than the actual temperature of the room


Your question is phrased a little odd.

1) If when you say 'thermostat' - you are actually talking about a 'temperature reading' on your thermostat - then I would tell you to just get another temp measuring device and double-check the temp.

2) if howerver you are talking about the set-point of your thermostat - for example - you might have it set on 70 degrees and the room temperature is 78 - then I would say that the AC is not big enough to pull the temp down to 70 in the room, or, you have a problem with the AC that does not allow the unit to pull the temp down.

good luck!

Fan blows room temp air, I can hear the AC kick in but it only runs for about 30sec to 1min before cutting out and making a sputtering sound that shakes the whole unit. Then it just goes back to blowing...


check you condenser fan motor make sure it turns on, if ok you must clean the fins on the outside unit,with a water hose , make sure you turn power off first before taking a water hose to unit

Improper Termperature Readings during AC run


personally i'd just replace the thermostat, but try pulling the front panel off and look on the circuit board and see if there is a jumper for F/C or any other settings. you may try changing its position. you can also remove the batteries for 15 minutes and see if it resets itself. the only other thing it could be is a wiring issue.

Room temperature reads 95-99 degrees F, not cooling the room


one hose is the heated condensing air and one hose is the intake air. if this unit is not working correctly and u just purchased it take it back. if the landlord will replace it tell them. do not call a service tech to check this unit out if u know 4 sure the temp is set right and it continues to blow hot and the exhaust hose blows outside and the unit is set to cool you are money ahead to replace it. hopefully a landlord or recent purchase can bail you, you can find these units at home depot lowes and get them 4 about 400 dollars. hopefully it's covered somehow by warranty or landlord but the cost for checkout and service will exceed the cost for replacement. have you tried to unplug the unit leave it unplugged and try again. have u cleaned the filter. have you noticed ice anywhere. maybe a light that tells you the drain is plugged i don't wan't to get you're hopes down when you are burning up but check these things and let me know if u see any abnormalities. do you leave the unit running in hopes that you will come home and it works? check for ice is there air blowing constantly? if u dont get air flow you could have a fan thats out or its iced up. let me know.

I just had a new compressor installed in my heat pump. My heat pump compressor turns off (I can hear it) in air conditioner mode when the outside temperature is greater than 95F. The temperature inside...


It sounds as if it is tripping on high pressure. This can be directly related to outdoor temp. Most residential a/c units will run a maximum capacity over 95 degrees. The compressor should not be shutting down though.

The best thing you can do, (short of hiring the company to come back), is making certain that the outdoor coil is free of debris. You should be able to see light through the coil fins. Also make sure that the indoor filter has been changed. Finally (with the outdoor breaker off) look at the fan blades on the exhaust motor. If they look cracked or uncentered then they could be your problem. Any further service should be done by a licensed technician because the other options are highly technical. I will list some of them here:

blocked or failed metering device (no or very low suction/high head)
kinked or obstructed line set (irregular pressures)
too much refrigerant (irregular pressures)
over amping exhaust fan motor (sometimes intermittent)
unmatched condenser to evaporator (corrected by Heat gain calc)
weak or failing capacitor (measured using special fluke style meter)
