Hi,
It just got so hot that the unit kicked out on high head pressure...
Check the outside condenser coil for dirt... wash it out with soap and water so that you can get maximum air flow through it...

Hw do i remove error code E4


Hi,
E4: Indicates lack of refrigerant, or the compressor is not running, or the thermistor is out of
calibration.
Action: Check that the compressor is running by listening.
If it is apparent that the compressor is running, then check the
temperature difference across the evaporator.
i.e. Measure temperature of return air at inlet filters and
measure temp. of discharge air at grilles. This temp diff.
should be 14 to 18 C. with fan on hi speed. If temp diff. is less than this,
suspect lack of refrigerant.
Fit a suction gauge to access valve at rear of unit. See fig 12. On a 35C
outside temp. then suction should be 380 to 450Kpa.

Good luck

Ambient outside air temp sensor


i may be wrong but that sensor is for the ac not for engine operation and at 113 if its not that hot then the sensor is bad but if its summer its ok,, your engine works with intake air temp

Air cinditioning wont stay on, it switches to heat and wont shut off


What do you mean when you say it wont shut off? is it blowing hot air or do you just feel a lite flow of hot air even if you have the settings to cold?

If this is the problem that you always feel hot air at low flow and the ac goes to hot air then i would say one of two things, first if you have the selector to cold and you feel hot air then there may be a problem with the blend door, this door move to allow hot or cold air, the door may be broken or just a bad motor that controls it. keep in mind if the ac system shuts down for any reason the air then will be warm, it will be about the same temp as outside and maybe a little hotter.

this problem almost sounds like the ac compressor shuts off and then you are getting the outside air which is hot, there are many reasons for the compressor to shut off, it could be the compressor clutch heating up and disengaging , this would be due to a bad compressor clutch.

another reason is the fans are not working, the best thing to do is when the system starts to blow warm check and see if the compressor is running, start engine and look at the front of compressor, with ac off the front of it will not move, and then with ac on the front will spin, check it out and let me know, if it blows warm air and ac is not working then it may be compressor problem but if you are getting warm air and the compressor is spinning then it may be a door problem.

This is hard to check with out testing the system, so i listed a few things to check and let me know the out come. also the ac blows cold for how long before it gets hot air blowing out of the vents, good day.

Jumping Idle, Unstable air temp and running hot


Yes it helps the A/C when stoped at a stop light idling . the cooling fan coming on pulls air through the A/C condensor taking away the heat . Before replacing the fan , check to see if it is indeed bad by jumping the socket where the relay plugs into . Pull the the relay an look on the bottom , you will see four sets of numbers 30 &87 plus 85 & 86 . 30 & 87 are the two you want . Take a paper clip or a piece of 12 gage wire an jump 30 to 87 if the fan runs it's OK if not replace it . Just replaced fan on my 05 cavalier last summer .

Rooftop RV Air Conditioner: temp outside 90 or above. compressor kicks off ....


It sounds like maybe an overload for the compressor is tripping and resetting once the compressor cools. Possibly due to a low charge.

Goodman compressor cuts off when temp too high


I believe you have 1 of 2 problems going on here your system may be overcharged causing the compressor to cut out on a overload relay circuit internally, or it also could be tripping out a high pressure switch which could be from an overcharged system or a dirty condenser. I would have the tech come out on a 90 degree day and put the gauges on and check the pressures while it is operating under a full load.

Hope this helps you.

Koolatron Mini Fridge Overheating


Check the condensor fan behind the fridge which is designed to cool the compressor/gas line by blowing air over the condensor. When this fan motor seizes or stops running, the gas gets very hot and because it is skin cooled too, the outside of the fridge also gets very hot. You can overcome the problem temporarily by putting a standing fan behind the fridge, blowing onto the compressor and under the fridge untill you can have the problem rectified.
