Why does the aircon cant stay on


Most modern air conditioners are designed to offer up to 10 to 20 years of reliable use. However, even the most reliable of air conditioners may stop cooling or suffer from problems from time to time. Remember that one of the best ways to prevent unexpected A/C problems is to have regular maintenance performed on your unit. If you cannot perform the maintenance yourself, hire a professional to do so. Spending money on maintenance now can save you from big repair bills in the future.
Some of the most common AC problems are listed below, and they may even be the reason why your air conditioning unit won't kick on. Review this information so that you know how to best troubleshoot problems with your unit. Be sure to determine whether your unit has shut down entirely or whether only a part of your unit has shut down or isn't working. Remember that it is always necessary to cut power off to your unit before inspecting it for wiring-related problems.
  • The AC unit does not cool rooms evenly: Inspect your unit's distribution channels. Make sure that the fan on your unit is kicking air into rooms or into your duct system.
  • The AC unit turns on but doesn't cool: If your unit turns on but doesn't cool, check your thermostat to be sure that it is set at the correct temperature. You should then check the condenser and evaporator for dirt and clogging. If too much dirt builds up, your unit may not turn on at all.
  • The condenser unit returns on and off repeatedly: Having a unit turn on and off repeatedly is extremely frustrating. In general, this problem is caused either by a dirty condenser and fan or a clogged condenser.
  • The condenser unit won't turn on: If your condenser unit won't turn on at all, you may have a faulty motor or the unit may not be receiving power. Examine all wiring and ensure that the unit is plugged in.

My refrigerator is not cooling properly. How can I find the source of this problem?


The controls on a unit like that cannot be set to extremes on one side. If you set the freezer to the wrong setting or the refrigerator to high then the balance is bad. The other thing is that the coils inside the unit might have ice on them and the ice is not defrosting. That means that no air is flowing through them.

Whirlpool AD70USR0 Dehumidfier - Our basement is extremely humid and the dehumidfier sounds and looks like its running but collects no humidity...any suggestions why?


If it is very cold some of these consumer units will not turn on the compressor. If the unit suddenly stopped working and the temperature is room temperature I would guess a refrigeration issue- either a leak or bad compressor. Make sure the "full bucket" indicator light is not on- the condensate bin may not be plugged into the unit properly.

A/C head pressure possible problem - how to wash out/unclog condenser? How to recognize where these parts are inside?


I will address how to wash out the condensing unit.
Turn off power to unit. Should be a disconnect or breaker within sight of the unit.
Remove the top of the unit that holds the fan assembly.
Wash the coils from the inside out.
Just use a water hose with a spray nozzle. Do no use a pressure washer!
Put fan assembly back and fire it up.
Extremely dirty coils will cause high head pressure but there are many other causes as well.

The outside of the freezer is extremely HOT..It is cooling inside. It is in our garage and we have had 39 days of over 100 degree weather. Should we be concerned with this?


Normally when the cabinet is extremely hot it is an indication that the condenser grill is not getting enough airflow accross it to cool down the freon. Then could be because the condenser fan is not operating or the condenser grill is dirty or there is no front to back air flow.

So first thing you need to do is check and make sure the condenser fan is working (the one under your unit). If it isn't then replace the fan motor. If it is functional, then clean the condenser grill (the one underneath the unit) and if that is not the problem, then I would suggest you raise your frigerater up (put on a 2x4 or 4x4 (front to back) to increase air flow.

I have a refrigerator is my garage also, and was having similar issues until I raised my unit up, which also helped with keeping the condenser grill clean.

Outside unit doesnt start inside unit is working


This model of Goodman A/C the condenser coil get extremely dirty and what happens is when your condenser runs for a long period of time it pops the capacitor. This is the starting component for the compressor and the fan outside. the coil needs to be cleaned with a non acid condenser cleaner. Open up the side compartment of A/C look at the silver cylinder thats the capacitor if is looks swelled replace it.

Carpet wet under window air con.


The air conditioner needs to be "tilted" or "pitched" to the rear. By this I mean the back (outside) should be slightly lower than the front (inside). This will allow the water to run toward the back of the unit, and drip on the ground instead of inside the house - on the floor. The A/C unit must not be level or tilted into the room (front even with or lower than the rear).

This water is the result of condensation that is created when the warm room air is drawn through the much cooler coil & fins inside the unit and is completely normal. The more humid the air inside is, the more condensation will form, and drain away.

Good luck!

Always wondered why there is no drain hole at bottom rear of unit, so no condensation can drip away-now I find it not cooling well and the bottom front of the condenser is iced up. What to do?


Newer models of window AC's use either a flailing fan to spin the condensate out the sides of the AC (outside the window) or the heat of unit and outside air will evaporate the condensate.

Either way, any excess will spill over the back edge, hence the reason that manufacturer's recommend that the AC be installed with the rear of the unit slightly tilted down to prevent excessive condensate (water) from building up and/or coming inside the front of the unit.

As to the icing, it could be that the unit is undersized for the space you are trying to cool and can't keep up and is running all the time in an attempt to cool the air down in the room you have it installed in. Try letting the unit "defrost" by shutting it off for awhile (until the ice melts) and then keep the shades pulled and the door closed once you restart it. I also tell people to give the AC a chance to adjust by setting the cooling temp to around 10 cooler than the present temperature of the room.

It's really hard to completely cool down a hot room all at once, so unless you're willing to let the unit cool it down in stages, it might not be able to ever get a 90 degree room down to 65 degrees in one day, if ever. Give it a try and see what happens, otherwise, you might need a larger rated BTU unit to get the cooling you desire.

Airconditioner has weak cooling power.


if all the coils on the out side and inside units are clean and the fan motors are running fine it sounds like it could be low on freon
