Question about Carrier 38CKC042 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

My air conditioner is blowing hot air instead of cool air.. what is wrong with it? I have a Freyven mini split and the compressor turns on and off in a matter of seconds. It doesn't cool the room at all. It has The R-22 at the correct specifications but I just can't seem to figure it out. I have had several so-called technicians come and check it but it is still the same. What is the problem.

First if it turns on and off does this trip the breakers?? I'd recommend you to change the combination capacitor and check against wiring diagrams probably a misplaced wire that can do what your describing. check that you have your remote set on cooling to 21c or 72 f if you need any other help e-mail me at hvac.tech7872pr@gmail.com

Air conditioners normally blow cold air, unless it has a built in heat pump. You should post the model with your questions.

How do i deal with the dripping of water from my Mitsubiishi split system from inside unit? Will putting the unit on 19 and then turning it full bore clear over condensing?


NO
the water is condensation from the humidity in the air turning to water on the cold evaporator core
normally it drips into a tray and drains away outside
if it is inside ( running down the walls it indicates
the drain hole and tube is blocked or the evaporator core is covered in gunk and holding the water up and not dripping where it is designed to
Call an accredited ac specialist shop to clean the fins and drain tube

Cooloing is not coming down from room temperature


The unit needs service. Call a technician! You can:
Check your air filters
Clean outdoor coil by turning off all power at breakers and tstat, clean o.d. coil with water hose
Inspect indoor coil (if you can) for build up or debris
Other than that? May be low on freon. A service tech will cost $ BUT not having the unit service will cost more due to electrical consumption and excessive run times shortening the life of the system.

Only recently my portable heller air conditioner is oosing out buckets of water each night. does it mean it finished and needs replacement,


Portable air conditioners cool the air, and in so doing, dehumidify the air. The "buckets" of water are coming from the humid air in your environment, so you need to do things that will reduce humidity, of be prepared to empty the condensate receptacle fairly often.

Using a small room, closing doors and windows to the room you want cooled, avoiding cooking or heating water, reducing the frequency of people walking into/out of the room and limiting the number of people in the room will all help in reducing, and keeping low, the ambient humidity.

Why does home central air conditioner will only cool to 80 degrees?


Because it is low on Freon. Do not run it low or the compressor wont be able to cool and you will burn it up. If it has run more than 1 hour in 90 degree heat the compressor is probably already damaged. Have a HVAC professional look at it, but if you were still using id plan for the worse, a complete replacement.
