Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

My adp coil already failed in my only 2.5 yr. Old Carrier ac unit. I am now looking at an estimated $1500.00 repair. Coil is under warranty so the above cost reflects labor only. Adp serial #7107A07780. What is the track record on this product?

Sorry, I don't have any solution but I'm in the process of replacing my 2 AC systems (4 tons by York). My RUUD dealer has provided RUUD ac and gas furnace with ADP coil and not using RUUD coil. Should I insist on using RUUD coil rather than ADP coil?
Thanks,

Our Carrier evaporative coil is broken beyond repair due to copper too thin to hold the refrigerant. Our home and A/C is less than 4 years old and the AC repairman said that if we replace it with another...


If in fact the coil is less than five years old then the parts should be under warranty. Labor only charge. As for the tubing, all coils have very thin walled tubing as to transfer heat more effectively. Aspen coils did have defected coils which were manufactured for a number of brands at about the time you purchased your unit. The manufacture may step up and help if you contact them directly, customer support from Carrier. Estimated cost for labor depending where you live should be between $500 to $800 dollars depending on installation. It could be a little more if it is an attic installation.

Depending on where you live, it did does sound very high. You could probably replace the whole unit for a new one for less money than the repair charges. However, before you do that, get a second opinion from another reputable HVAC company. But, don't tell them, you have already gotten one estimate.


Hope this helps. I'd love to know how it works out for you.

Looking for evaporator coil cd5axa036017abaa . three years of recharging rather then fixing now the coil is out of warranty and Carrier and service company will not stand behind product.


Hi, if you have a leak in the evaporator coil which this happens a lot and they came out and didn't try to make any attempts in finding and repairing the leak or they found it in the coil and didn't order a new one, this is against the law by E.P.A standards. They must make every attempt in making the repairs if it means replacing the coil, no if, ands, or buts!! Keep your receipts on them charging the system. Now that its out of warranty, I would call them and bring this up about not changing out the coil when the leak was found. I am sure they used dye to locate it.I have found more leaks in the evaporator coils then I care to count, and had to replace the coil. This is something you can't do on your own I must say, as it takes special equipment to do this job. I would call the Enviormental protection agency and tell Carrier you will do this, and report them. I bet they will stand behind it then. You have to get tough with them. I am a air conditioning contractor and know the law. The E. P. A. will get them on the ball trust me. This is bull+)_(*&%!* !! Don't let Carrier walk on you, this coil should have been put in the schedule to be changed out right away, not to continue to charge it to get you through. This is a 3 ton split system. Stay on them, this will be covered if you make the call and stay on them. The E. P. A. are very strict on this as this is why they have stopped us from venting freon into the air, they have very strict guide lines we must follow and Carrier did not follow them on your unit. Please keep me posted, and the best to you.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

I am a service manager of a richmond va hvac firm and we tell are employess that if a unit is over 15 yrs old and needs over 500 dollors worth of repair to recomennd replacement the reason the leak repair is so much is because the unit has to have all the refrigerant pulled out and a torch is needed to weld the piping back together in some cases if the leak is in the coil heating it can cause other leaks you also have to add driers to the system and then the environmental fees and rules that the epa makes us follow make prices even worse if you do fix it you probally wont even get a warranty on the repair. I would replace the system and also if cost of repairs are a concern ask the company about a 10 yr part and labor warranty

Power Light goes on but iron will not heat


If it is more than 3 years old (no warranty) then you can get it repaired or replaced. The heating coil is broken. The heating coil in the iron cannot be fixed, but must be replaced.

If the iron is less than 3 years old, you can get it repaired under warranty; however, shipping and other costs may not be worth having it repaired. (More than $30).
If you can get an estimate, you might want to have it repaired.

My recommendation? Replace it.

You either have a refrigerant leak or a dirty inside coil or a slow running inside blower motor.
Set the thermostat for heat and run it until all the ice is thawed. Then check the incoming air side of the coil for lint and dirt. Check the fan motor for proper speed. If you have service gauges your low side pressure should be approximately 68 psi. If lower you have a leak.

Coil leaking freon on the inside unit. Estimate is $2,100!


If indeed your evaporator (indoor) coil is leaking, the best option IS replace it (it may not even BE repairable). If you live in the USA and your furnace is getting old, a new ultra high efficient SYSTEM that qualifies for the tax credit would probably be a better option (Obama will pay 30%).

Carrier evaporator coil


I recently contacted Carrier Corp after our routine annual HVAC check on our residential system indicated that our 4 ton AC unit and 3 ton unit had leaking evaporator coils.
>
They basically told me to shove it in a very curt letter - In other words even though a leaking evaporator coil is a manufacturing defect they will not offer any financial assistance in replacing the failed evaporator coils.
>
I spoke to several HVAC engineers and they indicated Carrier has a high percentage of evaporator coils and compressor failures on residental HVAC systems.
>
The copper wall of the evaporator coil is being drawn thinner than in earlier years and the R22 being acidic slowly eats through the copper tubing.
>
Evaporator coils should not fail according to the HVAC Engineers if properly manufactured.
