Possibly a problem with the refrigerant charge. Could also be a dirty coil (inside or outside coil) or air filters. If there isn't enough airflow over the coils pressure will rise and shut down the compressor.

I have a Rheem Heat Pump unit. This winter, the outside unit fan at times trips off, but the inside unit keeps running continuously. I woke up one morning & it was 62 in the house. The inside unit ran...


Dear Friend!

Due to very low ambient temp, the fan will not run. Once the pressure build up, it's automatically run for some time and again cut off. But if you keep Heat mode and still tem not raised in your room means the reversable valve not working and hence the compressor and out side fan also will not work. Keep "Heat" mode and temp setting +29 to get better heat. Hope is it helpful?

Our carrier air conditioner failed to cool down the house last night. changed the filter and still struggling to cool house down.


is it cooling some at night but none during the day basically ? Outside unit clean also ? Good airflow ? if yes on all of these feel the copper pipes that go inside the house from the outside and once a/c has been on for a few minutes the large line should be very cool or cold to where it would condensate.. Sometimes it may take up to 15 minutes..

We installed a new TCJD36 (3 TON) unit with new A coil. The unit works fine from morning until 4:30 PM. from 4:30 PM to 9:00 PM the compressor does not come on. Inside fan goes on and outside unit fan...


This really sounds like the unit is over heating the compressor to the point of triping the internal high limit switch and just taking that long to cool off before it resets. If it continues to do this go outside and run your water hose over the compressor for at least 30 minutes to cool the compressor down and see if it starts for you then. If so then your unit could be over charged and creating very high head pressures!

My air conditioner starts blowing like a fan before my apartment is cooled off, why does it kick off and on like this?


When you first turn it on the fan runs and after a few minutes the outside unit comes on, once the outside unit comes on it take time for it to cool the coils which cool the house, And a/c does not really cool the air,It removes the heat that is in the air.

Sharp split system, cutting out


If this is running in A/C mode, then I bet you have a low refrigerant charge. The compressor is dropping out on low suction pressure if it's cutting in and out every 5-10 minutes or so. If it takes hours, then it's likely a different problem.

Reply back and I can help you (been in that business for over 30 years.).

Ruud heat pump question


Does the air handler take a minute or two to start, this would be normal so that it doesn't blow cool air into the house before the unit is warmed up. If not could be the fan relay is weak and needs replacing. As far as the outside unit it sounds like you need to check the refrigerant. In cooling they are 70/150 psi. This should be checked in cooling mode, once you turn it to heating mode the pressures switch bring heat inside the house instead of out. I hope this helps.

Heat Pump won't cool house becuase outside unit won't stay on


Depending on your ambient temperature and installation, it is possible that your unit has been overcharged with refrigerant which would cause high head pressure and cut out on the HP control circuit.
