First off you need to check the filters inside of the home, if they are dirty replace them. I would also check the condenser outside and see if it has a high pressure reset, this is usually on the smaller of the two copper lines coming from the compressor. It will look like a small valve with a button on the top or it will be in a gray case with a small metal stem that may be pushed in to reset. If the high pressure switch has been tripped most likley the condenser is dirty and it will need cleaned. To do this turn off the disconnect to the condenser, take the case apart to gain access using a garden hose rinse from the inside out thourghly.

Does not cool room.


Goldstar WG5000 air conditioners use an R22 refrigerant. A charge kit containing the gauges needed to properly fill the unit, and the refrigerant tank/cartridge can be purchased to fill the air conditioner.

No cool air coming out of home air conditioner


Unless your compressor is burnt up, you probably don't need a new unit. If it's a 1998 it's not that old and you can get parts, the only thing is it's probably R-22 refrigerant and they must fix the leak in the unit if that's the problem before adding refrigerant and the refrigerant is expensive.. All they have in a heating and cooling system, that needs replaced, are a few parts. Outdoor unit has a fan motor,compressor, capacitors fan and compressor and a contactor. Furnace has a blower motor, capacitor, gas valve, fan and limit or furnace control board, which they still make replacement parts for.
My advice would be to call some more HVAC companies, till you find one, that is willing to fix your unit and not replace it..

We have a Fujitsu Halcyon wall mounted ductless unit (indoor Unit ASU15RLQ). It was installed in December 2007 and we've done regular cleaning of the washable filters etc. Now it is not cooling. There is...


Hi, first of all, you can get a replacement filter by contacting Fujitsu on (973) 575-0381, (866) 952-8324 toll free and you will be told the nearest Place around you where you can get it from.

Secondly, your AC not cooling might be as a result of a clogged filter, which is not pulling good air flow. If that is not the problem, it could be that the refrigerant is low, coils could be dirty, or a thermostat problem.

But i think the red light signifies that you need a new filter..

Take care

AC not cooling during the day


Your AC cooling efficiency is low when he ambient temperature is high and naturally it cools well when the outside temperature drops.

Please remove the filter on the grill and try to clean it under the tap water and after removing all the dust fix it back to the unit. This would increase the cooling efficiency of the unit.

Your AC is also five years old. Please avoid frequent opening of doors or windows.

Ensure that the exhaust fan and the blower of your unit are functioning normal.

The technician might not have done a proper job in fixing the area where the refrigerant would have leaked out. Please check the refrigerant pressure to ensure that no further refrigerant leak has taken place. Or even servicing your unit he would have punchered the tubes resulting in very slow leak of refrigerant resulting in no cooling or less cooling. It takes around a month to feel the pinch of it and the refrigerant. One fine morning after sometime the unit will run and it would start throwing hot air instead of cool breeze!

Noisy unit, not cooling well, water drip from air intake


First please check the air filter and clean it and refix it.
Please check the refrigerent level next if it continues. Refrigerent leak will result in poor cooling and enhance the noise level.
The compressor could be defective and might take high power to run and only replacement of the compressor could improve the working condition.
In case the unit is more than 5 years old it is wise to replace it with a new unit and save your power bill.

Danby DAC5020 Air Conditioner fan works but not compressor


It could be as simple as being low on refrigerant. Depends on how expensive the unit is if its worth recharging and how big the unit is. Some small units will need to have a recharge point fitted which cost more of course.

When 13+ SEER condensers are replaced without installing a inside coil with an expansion valve the compressor in the new unit will slug and go bad. Slug means that liquid refrigerant returns to the compressor. Liquid can not be compressed so it causes the compressor to fail.
