Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

I have a Fedders window AC unit, model: A2Q10F2BG-AC. It works in the Cool position. When switching to the HI FAN position it shakes and then stops. Changed the capacitor because it was not doing anything. I am not sure what to do next.

Oh, the compressor motor's borked or overworked and overheating, or its capacitor failed short (perhaps the motor is shutting off from thermal shutdown...but you get to find out whether that's so. Be safe.) Alternately the temperature sensors have gone touchy on you. Once you gently vacuum it clean, try keeping incandecent bulbs in series with the compressor to get an idea of how loaded that thing is as it runs for those 5 minutes or so; the load might change more than you expect, just pay attention.
Hopefully you won't have to replace the compressor or motor; but it's doable if you're a certified technician with like equipment (so you can handle the refrigerant decently.) Most shops will streamline a bunch of similar jobs together to cut the waste and setup time.
Bigger conditioners are so much more efficient than little ones...syndicate the A/C?

SOURCE: 2 problems.. AC Comp cuts out. And Fan will not stop.

Unit#2 -Sounds like the contacts on the master switch are welded closed or the switch is broken, Replacing the switch should fix this unit.
#1 is a little more difficult to diagnose. The compressor is being taken off line by a circuit that protects the compressor from damage either; 1- liquid refrigerant getting back to the compressor which can be caused by something as simple as a clogged return air filter or evaporator coil on a heat pump or 2- overload situation caused by a bad condenser motor or a clogged condenser coil. The first thing you need to do is clean both coils and replace the filter,. Then check to be sure your getting good airflow across both coils. I think it's most likely an airflow issue I hope this resolves the problem GL!

SOURCE: will not switch to cool mode. heat and fan work fine

hi,
regarding on switch mode theres a common line between heating and cooling although fan is always connect on them.,also with the thermostat,the sequence on this when you switch to cooling and your connection is on heater,the contactor will shift to compressor source,so if there is no cooling, the contactor supplying the compressor is not functioning when you switch on cool mode.try to tighten screw on compressor relay maybe only loose.on control panel,or check continuity of compressor if the compressor still good,check also the freon charge using clamp ammeter,this should be done by ac technician.have a nice day
rate me up,thank's

SOURCE: RV air conditioner. Compressor running, fan stops before cool

The fan motor is getting hot and going off on the internal overload in the motor.
This is caused by either a low voltage, a bad capacitor, or tight or dry bearings in the motor.
To check the bearings turn the power off to the unit, then spin the fan blade if it spins freely then the bearings are ok.
To check the capacitor you will need some kind of tester or you can buy a capacitor and replace it, that's what a lot of people do. They usually don't cost very much.
To check the voltage you will need a voltmeter and measure the volts at the unit.

Fedders air conditioning model a3t12f2ag , my unit runs fine but it will not blow cool air?


you either have internal thermostat problems, selector switch problems or youve got a freon leak. to determine a freon leak is the units coil freezing up or is it dirty check filter first take unit out and to car wash remove housing and give it a bath dont plug it back in until its dry.hope this fix works if not work your switches remember they set in one position most all the time if freon call a tech

Our Fedders through-wall unit (A2T10F2B) turns on, and the fan works at various speeds, but the unit does not cool. What should we do?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The cause of not cooling can be Drain, Sensor or Electric Control might have gone bad. First of all you’ll need to check that the condensation drain is not clogged and is working fine. Also check that the thermostat sensor behind the control panel has not gone bad. The sensor should not be touching the coil but instead it should be near to it. Please check and adjust it. The thermostat sensor measures the temperature of incoming air into the evaporative coil. Due to malfunction of the sensor the AC will not cool normally. As the ACs are turned on and off frequently the fan controls and compressor may also go bad. Please also check that there is no corroded wire. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Maytag M6Y18F7A Air Conditioner troble light turns off


you have to open the unit up or atleast see if the fan is failing. The blower motor is usually a double shaft and cool the compressor and also blows the air across the evaporator. Look for the air to stop blowing then the compressor to shake from overheating.

My AC unit wont blow the cold air.


if the ac outside is working, but not the furnace, means there is a control problem with the furnace, check wires in the furnace, make sure there is a blower wire plugged into the contact marked cool on the control panel of the furnace
