Remove exhaust hose


U need that hose to direct the warm air outside the area to be cooled. If you remove it, the hot exhaust will stay in the room being cooled and negate the cold air being directed into the room.

That is why regular room AC units are mounted on window sill. Cold air in, hot air out.

The ice cube indicator is blinking


From the manual:

The Control Center monitors refrigerator and

freezer temperatures as well as the ice maker

system. If there is a temperature or ice maker

problem, you'll be alerted by a flashing

SERVICE indicator light. This same SERVICE

light will also flash if the condenser needs

cleaning. Before calling for service, please

check and see if your condenser area needs

cleaning. Refer to Condenser Cleaning,
page 22.

CONDENSER CLEANING

In all Built-In models, the condenser is located

behind the grille. First, remove the grille. Then

using a soft bristle brush, vacuum to remove

dust and lint from the condenser. NOTE: To

avoid bending the condenser fins, be sure to

vacuum in the direction of the fins (up and

down). Clean the condenser area every three

to six months.


CAUTION

Before cleaning the unit, shut the electricity

off at the control panel. When you

clean the condenser, wear gloves to avoid

injury from the sharp condenser fins.

Failure to clean the condenser could

result in temperature loss or mechanical
failure or damage.

I have a 5th whell RV Couger 2006 had 1 AC unit replaced already now two years later it only pumps slightly cooler air but has condinsation streaming off the roof. An hour and a half later the interior is...


Yes it is a sealed unit, and there are some refrigeration guys who can solder on valves and recharge, but make sure you get a quote first, as some charge as much as a new unit. That said, I'd be looking at evaporator coils/fins as well as condenser coils and fins for dirt and debris and give them a real good cleaning. I'm going to assume this is a ducted ceiling, so Make sure your getting flow through all those ducts, and check for how cool it is. Does it feel like cooler air coming out the ducts? Rule of thumb is 20 F difference between ambient and discharge should be normal. All that condensation tells me it's trying to cool but you may have a problem elsewhere, like plugged fins, or faulty ducting. If the flow coming out of ceiling ducts is not good and cool, try removing the ceiling assy and see if the discharge side is cool there, and check that the ducts in to the ceiling have no obstructions as well and are properly aligned.Let me know what you find. Make sure return air filter is clean as well and get a flashlight and look way up in the return area, at the fins for dust collected on fins etc. If you remove outside cover on roof, turn off breaker, and you can use a hose to spray down and a nylon brush to clean fins and coils at condenser. Watch for bees, or wasps when you remove that cover on the roof.

Roof top A/c on a 33 1/3 foot RV. When


How long since the evaporator coils & fins, as well as condenser coils & fins have been thoroughly cleaned? Everything works harder when it can't get proper air flow. I have seen units that owners swear they cleaned well, but had no idea, they had to vacuum &/or wash down the coils way up inside the area that the return air filters are. If you take a flashlight & stand on a small ladder or something, and shine it way up to top, you'll see what I'm talking about. Even when filters are kept clean, over years, dust collects up there & add moisture to that & you get like mud clogging up those coils. If your up to it, or have someone who is, or will, going up on the roof and remove cover, I can tell you proper way to clean entire upper unit so that it has a chance of running as cool & efficient as possible. It doesn't cost anything other than some time, and a little elbow grease. Let me know.

Vacuum condenser light of sub zero 650 is on - how to clean it


We recommend vacuuming your condenser every 3 - 6 months. Cleaning the condenser is important for the overall operations of the unit including cooling functions. A dirty condenser may lead to warm temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer. It may also cause the unit to run excessively. It may contribute to condensation or frost inside of the compartments. If the condenser is not cleaned properly it may even cause premature failure of mechanical components in the unit. Condenser Cleaning - All Models Before cleaning the unit, shut the electricity off at the control panel. When you clean the condenser, wear gloves to avoid injury from the sharp condenser fins. Use a soft bristle brush and vacuum to remove dust and lint from the condenser. To avoid bending the condenser fins, be sure to vacuum in the direction of the fins, up and down. Clean the condenser every three to six months or sooner if you have pets. 600 Series Framed and Stainless Steel louvered grilles: First remove the grille screws located at the bottom of the grille. Tilt the top of the grille forward and release the springs from behind the grille, then lift off. Overlay Panel Grille: To remove, lift up then pull out at the bottom and down to release from its mounting bracket. Remove the two black screws in the lowest louver of the grille. Tilt the bottom of the grille out and away. It will release from the top of the grille. Model 601RG Stainless Steel Grille: Remove in a similar fashion as the overlay grille panel. 700 Series All Units: At the bottom of the unit, remove the four screws holding the kick plate/grille in place. It will then slide forward, giving you access to the condenser area. 400 Series 424/424FS At the bottom of the unit, remove the screws holding the kick plate. The condenser is located behind. 427/427R: Remove the four screws holding the kick plate/grille in place. It will then slide forward, giving you access to the condenser area. 430: First remove the screws located at the bottom of the grille. NOTE: These screws (Phillips head) are accessed with the door open. Tilt the top of the grille forward and release the springs from behind the grille, then lift off. 200 Series 245, 249, 315W Remove the kick plate at the bottom of the unit, giving you access to the condenser area.

Pressure keeps dropping on my jaguar boiler, no leaks in house but hot water coming from overflow outside


hi In most air-conditioning systems, the condenser unit is located outside the house and is prone to accumulate dirt and debris from trees, lawn mowing, and airborne dust. The condenser has a fan that moves air across the condenser coil. You must clean the coil on the intake side, so, before you turn off the power to the air conditioner, check to see which direction the air moves across the coils. Here's how to clean the condenser:
Step 1: Cut down any grass, weeds, or vines that have grown around condenser unit; they could be obstructing airflow.

Step 2: Clean condenser with commercial coil cleaner, available at refrigerator supply stores. Instructions for use are included. Flush coil clean (do not use hose); let dry.
Step 3: Clean fins with soft brush to remove accumulated dirt. You may have to remove protective grille to reach them. Do not clean fins with garden hose, as water could turn dirt into mud and compact it between fins. Clean fins very carefully: They're made of light-gauge aluminum and are easily damaged. If fins are bent, straighten them with fin comb, sold at most appliance parts stores. A fin comb is designed to slide into spaces between fins. Use it carefully to avoid damaging fins.Step 4: Check concrete pad on which condenser rests to make sure it's level. Set carpenters' level front to back and side to side on top of unit. If pad has settled, lift pad with pry bar or piece of 2-by-4, then force gravel or rocks under concrete to level it.

Leaking aircon


THERE IS A TUBE OR CHANEL FROM THE FRONT EVAPORATOR DRAIN PAN THAT RUNS TO THE BACK OF THE UNIT INTO THE CONDENSER PAN. IT IS ALWAYS ADVISABLE TO THOUROUGH LY CLEAN ALL COILS, AND DRAIN PANS AND DRAIN LINES ANUALLY. IF THAT TUBE OR CHANEL WAY GETS PLUGGED IT WILL CONSTANTLY DRIP IN THE COOL MODE.,

IF YOUR A/C IS 110V MOST ALL ARE ABOUT 5,000 - 7,000 BTU''S ALL SHOULD RUN ON A SEPERATE CIRCUIT OR NOT HAVE ANYTHING ELES PLUGED IN ON THAT CIRCUIT.

MOST ALL WINDOW UNITS HAVE THE BTU'S RATING ON THE TAG INSIDE THE UNIT. THESE SMALL UNITS REQUIRE COMPLETE REMOVAL FROM THE WINDOW OR WALL FOR CLEANING. ONLY LARGER UNITS 10,000 AND ABOVE SLIDE OUT OF THE CABINENT FROM THE FRONT.

90% OF A/C I HAVE REPAIRED IN 40+ YEARS WERE DUE TO PLUGGED DRAIN LINES A DIRTY COILS. THEY MUST BE ALL CLEAN BEFORE I COULD START TO DIAGNOSE ANY PROBLEM BECAUSE THE PRESSURES VARY IF THE COILS ARE RESTRICTED WITH DIRT, ETC.
