Check you contact on your outside unit, the relay may have gone bad. In the corner remove four screws, and the cover should come off it may have a fifth in the middle. It is a black square, T1 T2 T3 and L1 L2 L3 , it has a relay in between. Make sure you have you voltage coming in(line the L's), if you don't then somewhere around the unit is a box check and make sure the fuse/breaker is good. If you have power, with an insulated screwdriver or you finger push the contact in, the compressor and fan should run. Now if the relay is engage then it is more then likely the fan motor or capacitor. Hoped this helped tim

My air conditioner is not blowing cold air in the house


because the fan inside the house is working doesn't mean that the compressor outside is working
It may be a faulty start /run capacitor for the outside unit ,out of gas or failed power board
I suggest that you get an accredited technician to come and give you a proper diagnosis of the fault.

Hello,
If there is no cooling (meaning no cold pipes and not blowing cold air) then check the outdoor A/C for any visible/obvious issues; breakers not tripped, no debris blocking the outside unit from passing air through it, etc. If all looks ok, you can start checking some things inside of the unit if you feel comfortable doing so. Also, most indoor heaters have a higher speed/rpm for the fan when the cooling kicks on, and the heat runs on a lower speed/rpm.

Hope this helps James

Inside fan turns on when outside unit is in defrost mode when heat is selected. This causes it to blow cold air for about 10 to 15 minutes prior to the outside fan starting.


The inside fan will run while the unit is in defrost. The electric heat strips should kick on to help prevent you from feeling this cold air. When the unit is in defrost it is essentially running in the A/C mode. You should make sure the electric heat elements are working then go from there.

Ac fan on, blowing air, but not cold


Check outside unit if unit and compressor are running feel the large line to see if it is cold. If compressor is running and line is not cold possible charge problems. You may have a capacitor problem outside. they go out quite often. You can change this yourself, Open up outside unit and the cap is the silver bullet with terminals out the top. Bad cap can cause compressor to not operate and also the fan. You need to clean the coil inside or at leat check the coil to see if it is clean. You can clean theis with a toilet brush do not go against the coil bit brush with the fins. You may need to call a service tech but try these options first. russ

Check your outside unit to see if fan is running. If it is running check to see if air is blowing out if not you have a bad capacitor. Some times if a capacitor shorts out the fan will run backwards and the line will get very hot same as if the fan is not running. Russ

Uotside unit blowing cool air but hot on the inside


It sounds like you have a unit called a heat pump. When a heat pump unit is in cooling mode the outside unit blows hot air and the inside unit blows cold air. If the outside unit is blowing cold then the indoor unit is most likely blowing room temperature or warm air. It sounds like the thermostat could be controlling incorrectly or you could have a failed reversing valve which is the device that switches the unit from heating to cooling mode.
