Well from what you've said I'm afraid it sounds like you have a significant refrigerant leak that needs to be repaired by a qualified professional. Heres how it's done: Any remaining refrigerant is removed from the system and stored in a tank with a refrigerant recovery machine the system is then pressurized with dry nitrogen and a trace amount of refrigerant. You look for the leak visually by looking for oily spots along the refrigerant circuit with soap bubbles to pinpoint the location in conjunction if needed with electronic leak detector leaks can also often be run down using sonic detectors and florescent dye with a black light. When a leak its repaired the procedure is repeated until all the leaks are all found and repaired and the system holds pressure over a period of time the system is then pulled in to a deep vacuum, the amount of oil lost with the leaks is estimated and replaced, the system is pulled into a vacuum again and then charged to provide the appropriate superheat specified by the compressor manufacturer It can be very tedious, time consuming and expensive so be prepared.Sorry for the bad news Hope it works out for you.

I have a goodman central air unit. It was not cooling had service man out the first one said the compressor. So he was sending someone out to replace the compressor. That guy said it was not the...

Calll him back out. It sounds like the air cond. is losing refrigerant rather quickly. When the refrig. leaks off, the compressor over heats and kicks off on internal overload. The first guy probably didn't see that, but the second guy caught it, but didn't check to see where the refrigerant leaked off. Call him back they should warranty the refrigerant if it is all leaked off again

My window unit. isnt as cold as years past think it needs freeon but dont know where to put it in at on my unit

Outside coil maybe be full of dirt. Fan blows through coil and dirt builds on the coil face that you can't see. Washing with a hose poing the nozzle at a 30 degree downward angle may help was it out. Some times it has to be taken apart to wash it out. If the air coming off the back side is uneven and very hot from top to bottom then it is most likely plugged up. Try not to spray water directly into fan motor. Low freon will normally make system freeze up after a while. Also abnormally high humidity and temps will make system seem not to cool as well.

Hot air coming out of back

portable air conditioners mainly have two hoses one hose is exhaust thats the one that is blowing hot air. the one pulling is return.. the hot air blowing out should be exhausted to the outside. the blowing air needs a hose and to be laid out a window the back should have model and serial maybe product number. the two holes are either 4 inch or three inch and most portable units other than hand me downs come with a window frame that allows the hot exchanged air to go outside and cooler air to be used for heat exchange.

Home Air Condition cooling problem

Hello. If your outdoor coils are dirty it's a good chance the indoor coils are dirty also. Clean the indoor coils and flush out the condensate line.
I know it's tempting to feel the air and try to decide if the unit is working properly but, you need to use a thermometer and while the unit is running check the temperature at the return air vent and then check the temperature at the supply vent closest to the unit. Remember to let the thermometer set for about 5 minutes before reading.
You should be looking for about 15 degrees F cooling between the return and supply.
If your coils are clean make sure the outdoor fan is operating properly. The air coming out of the outdoor fan should feel warm, almost hot. If not you may need to check your pressures. Good luck and let me know what you find.

Air conditioning unit

Hi! AC Unit
Sorry you have had so much trouble. Sounds like with the factory warranty being in effect the whole outside condensing unit should be replaced. With this type of problem there could be some blockage in the AC lines. With out some pressure reading it is hard to tell if the expansion tube is plugged, or there is some other major problem. If your service tech is unable to diagnose the problem you may need to get a third opinion. Goodman may have a factory representative in your area. You may be able to find some help with a different dealer or online. Good Luck! I will try and look for any changes.

Doesn't blow hard anymore

First make sure unit is correct for the size of room. You may have to mount it permanently so that it's tilted so it drains out the window. Check freeon level.

It is possible that your unit needs refrigerant but Before I would have someone recharge it they would have to locate the point of leak and repair it. I would check to make sure it is not some other problem first, like is the compressor operating.
