My Maytag portable A/C will blow cold air for one cycle, then after about five minutes it just blows room temp air and never gets cold again. If I turn power off then back on it does the same thing over again. already drained the water and cleaned the filter.

Cleaned the filter screen or the coils? There are two coils. The evaporator coil and the condensor. There is the "filter screen" in which you can clean which is located in the back top portion of the panel that is easily accessible. However to clean the coils you need to remove ALL the back screws from the back cover and remove the entire back panel. There you will see both coils. From your statement it sounds like there isn't sufficient airflow over your coils and the freon cannot release its cooling effect into the hot air thus it tends to ice up on the coils. You need to wash out all the lint dust from both coils. You can do this with with air conditioning coil cleaner or for starters use a stiff paint brush and vaccuum. Clean as much debris off as you can, then run the unit. It should last longer than your previous five minutes. If it doesn't work then your in trouble. There is a metering device called a TXV or expansion valve that may have failed causing the freon not to flow freely thoughout your system. However it is a rare occassion that it fails so it should be that the coils are dirty. GOOD LUCK

Frigidaire AC window unit, model fam185r2a (18,500 BTU) only cools for a few minutes before it cycles off and just fan blows. Then a few min later cool air cycles back on. Is this a thermostat issue?


The window units normally have a sensor thats attached to the front of the indoor coil. This controls the thermostat. I usually pull this sensor away from the coil because it stops cooling before the room is cool. It is attached to the cold coil so it senses the coil temp, not the room temp. You can normally see it when you remove the air filter. Don't break it! It may be a wire or small copper tube

When set to heat it blows out cool air.


Chances are your portable unit is a reverse cycle unit...If so, the leaving air temp in heating mode is not usually much warmer than room temp with 85 degrees F just about the maximum under PERFECT design conditions. A small portable in a large cold room may only be discharging 75 degree air, which is going to feel cold.

If your unit is NOT a reverse cycle unit, the heating source (probably electric resistance) is either not coming on at all or a portion of it is not coming on due to a defective element, burnt wire or a control issue.

Why is our a/c blowing room temp air when the setting is on cool?


It sounds like the compressor is not running. This could be due to a faulty thermostat, a bad start capacitor for the compressor, a bad compressor overload or simply a bad compressor. You would need a voltage meter to check all of these components.

Amcor 10,000BTU set at 64 degrees - - temperature of air coming out of unit is 72 degrees. In one and half hour set at 64 degrees the room temp only went from 90 degrees to 84 degrees. Recommendations?...


I am not sure, i have a similiar unit that is brand new, seems like a faulty mechanism from the maker, it starts cold for about 2-3 minutes and then shuts down condenser and blows hot air repeating this cycle. I don't believe it ias a recharge, just a faulty machine

Air Conditioner stops blowing cold air when vehicle is not moving


plus one on the cooling fan problem. if it was low on charge then as you slow down, condensor temps and line prressures would raise therefore it would cool at low speed and and not when moving since the incoming air would drop system temp,reducing line pressure and then cusing compressor to cycle. the auxillary cooling fans must be on whenever a/c is on, if not, thats your problem. get this taken care of because if you get stuck in traffic, your engine will overheat also if fans are not running

Room temp is not where it should be before furnace shuts down


Did the installer check the amperage at your thermostat and then adjust the heat anticipator? Or you may need to have the blower time settings changed to suite your needs. Get them back in to check.
