    my air conditioner runs like it should but it doesn't cool well. there is tons of water draining, and it has tons of condensation on the indoor part of the unit. I tried to put sheets around the unit to insulate it but it didn't help at all. please help.

Air Conditioner isn't blowing cold air


There are a few thing's that can cause this, if the evaporator coil in the a/c is blocked a little, you could get a little cool air, it's like having a dirty filter. If the condenser coil is blocked, you won't get cold air. If the refrigerant is low, you won't get cold, cold air.

MY GE ROOM AIR CONDITIONER AGH08AJG1 SWITCH BETWEEN COOL AND FAN EVERY 5 MINUTES APROXIMATELY NEVER SATYS COOLING UNTIL THE DESIRED TEMPERATURE IS REACHED


Check and clean the filter if found to be dirty. It is usually behind a decorative panel below the cold air output grates (when the cold air is on the top front).

The filter is behind the large, rectangular, slotted front panel. The evaporator coil is behind the filter. The fan behind the evaporator pulls the room air through the filter and evaporator coil where it is cooled and dehumidified. It is then discharged through the grates on the top of the front.

Direct the airflow from the unit up and away or left / right to prevent the cool air from being drawn in the front of the unit (this is where the thermostat sensor is located). Use the highest fan speed to help force the air away from the intake, too. Inspect the condenser and evaporator coils (condenser is outside and evaporator is directly behind the filter. Clean if dirty or icing over. Be sure to install a filter if none was present. There are products made specifically for cleaning between the fins of the condenser and evaporator coils. Use them only as directed.

If these suggestions do not work, you may have a problem with the thermostat, refrigerant level, condenser or condenser fan.

Good luck!

MY AIR CONDITIONER IS NO LONGER PRODUCING WATER FROM THE BACK


Check to make sure the filter is clean. If not, remove it, wash it and start it back up.

The water that you have seen comes from the machine cooling the air, the air conditioner literally squeezes the water out of the air. If it's not blowing cold ... no water.

If cleaning the filter doesn't work, you will probably have to have the unit looked at by a professional.

Air Conditioner blows air, but does not cool


Go to the outside unit and see if the compressor is running. It may be hard to hear. If you need to you can disconnect one fan lead so you can hear the compressor. If it isn't running then check the capacitor. If it is running then get the refrigerant charge checked. Also check air filter(s) and make sure the coils are clean.

Coleman deluxe blend air ll it starts up


The blowing fan is not rotating at the rated speed. Check the fan capacitor and replace.

Check motor also if the capacitor is not at fault.

The Amana air conditioner is not getting cold.


when is it the last time you cleaned the unit and changed the filters? it may be working good but you need to maintain the unit...clean all filters and see if you can vacum alll parts especially the condensing unit (you may need air pressure) can you move the unit to outside so you can clean it good? if you can use air or water pressur to clean it after you cover the lectrical parts. Good luck. (save your money this unit need cleaning only)

Wont blow cold air


First check and clean the filters, and the evaporator coil. (thats the "inside" coil that has the indoor air sucked through it, cooling it and then pushing it out the vents.

If the filter is clogged or the coils are dirty, it will not cool properly and potentially freeze up.

Also check the condensor (outdoor) coil, if it is dirty/clogged, it will run hot and not cool properly.

If all coils and filters are clean, and the fan motors are running and in good condition and it is still not cooling then you are likely low on refridgerant. (handling/purchasing refridgerant other than R134A requres a CFC certification by law)

Can i add more refriger to my air conditioner its cold when it starts but not cold enought


Adding more coolant to a frig. requires special equipment, training and technically a special license. You might say that industry is tightly wrapped.

The cost of doing the work yourself would be more than the cost of a new a/c.

Problem with GE Zoneline 5200 model


Heat pumps have saftey circuits that prevent liquid flooding of the compressor. Inadequate airflow across the evaporator in cooling can trip this circuit. Have your package unit serviced with particular attention to cleaning the evaporator coil and be sure your filters are clean and changed frequently in the summer months. Hope this helps GL!
