Question about Carrier 38CKC060 Air Conditioner
Carrier Model 38CKC060370 About two years old and has worked very well during past two summers. Now ... with thermostat set for about 69 deg. ... system runs for about 1/2 hr. and puts out cool air at about. 65 deg at vent ...drops inside temp from high 70s to low>mid 70s ... then stops producing cool air put condenser and fan keeps running. System has to be turned off for a while and started up again to continue producing cool air.
Service company said that condenser was icing up due to stuck bypass ?? They said everything now looks good ... PG&E said power consumption is normal ... but system still only cools for a short while and will not chill house down to or below about 73 deg.
If the refrigerant has been accurately charged and diagnosed, I would look for an air restriction. Check your filter first of all. It sounds like it may still be trying to freeze up. Make sure all the vents are at least a little open and the return grill is not blocked. In the Rocky mountain region we like to see around 44- 50 deg. at the vents. 65 would tell us that everything is not ok.
