Weather king Aj3601

The unit will come on and might be okay for a couple of days, then again it might stop within a couple of hours. It comes back on after a few hours, why is this. Next My unit was running fine but when I walked in the hall where the filter is I smelt a strong oder that smelled like oil or something and thought I seen some fog like smoke hasn't happened since but i took the filter an electronic something or another, Its a reusable filter, and tore it down and cleaned it real good. Still we have the problem of it shutting off and taking forever to come back on. Miserable please help

    Yes about a year or less ago, But took off the grill a week ago and it looked good. I can turn the attic fan on and it seems to help it kick in sooner.

Sounds like you have a freon leak hence the smel of oil and fog the unit runs because it has a low pressure cut out to protect the compressor when the pressure builds up enought to close this switch the unit runs as thwe pressure drops the switch cut off you will need to have a leak test done on the Evaprator coil inside

My Weather King AC unit model number 13AJA48A01 is freezing over. What can I do to fix it.

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. First be sure that the blower is working next make sure the filter is not plugged. If these two things are okay then you probably have a low freon charge in the system. Which also means you have a leak so I would have the system leak checked and repaired before having someone just dump freon into the unit as its just going to leak back out.

Could be the relay, the controller, the temperature sensor in the coolant system, the compressor, the R-134 level in the system, etc. What is SOUNDS like is that you may have a bad ignition switch or trouble with your harness. At any rate, the intermittent nature of it (I'm assuming that when you say "it comes back on and works again" that it works normally during those times) suggests a likely electrical issue.

Heat Pump Stops Working only in the Early Morning

When the unit does what you say does the fan motor outside stop also , if it does that means it is in defrost mode and should kick back over to normal after the system heats up the coil enough

Heater works after being off a while

If the unit is remote control try to unplug the supply of the unit(or off and on again circuit breaker) and operate the unit again. If it wont work then call a qualified technician to check the unit, maybe there is a problem with the unit control.
