The unit is set on cool, and set to 78 degrees. The temperature readout shows it is 100 (gotta love the Arizona summer), but the unit is not blowing cold air. It seems as if it is just blowing the circulating air, which makes it an expensive fan.
I took the side and rear covers off and cleaned all of the filters, with no change.
I have the unit approximately 2 feet from the wall, with the exhaust porting the hot air out the back hose through the wall at less than a 45 degree angle as suggested in the users manual.

Re: Soleus MA-9000AH blows hot air
Sounds like the compressor is not running. This model had lots of problems with over heating. It also will never really blow more than a moderate cooling through it. Since you have cleaned all the filters and is still 100 deg, I believe the failure will be the compressor itself or the capacitor.
If you find an oily residue in the drain or on the pipes, it may have simply leaked the refrigerant out. Good Luck!

because you have the temperature set at 28 degrees celcuis . Change the temperature to 18 degrees and it will cool 28 is hotter
It is a reverse cycle air conditioner it will warm the room if you set temperature to 28 degrees . Set it lower and it will blow out cold air.
Have exact same air conditioner as I recognise the remote control.
point it at the air conditioner when altering the temperature setting.
Check under the slide compartment also on the remote for more advanced settings.
AC means "air conditioning." If the AC icon is showing on your thermostat it means that your air conditioning is activated and should come on when the temperature threshold you've set on the thermostat is reached.
For example, if you've set the temperature level to 78 degrees, when the house temperature goes above 78, usually by about two degrees, the air conditioner should cycle on to cool it back down to 78 degrees at which point it will then turn off.
This information should be in your air conditioning/heating system or thermostat owners manual. If you don't have the manual, you should contact your air conditioning dealer or your builder to secure a replacement. The manual is essential for proper operation and maintenance of your system.
If your unit is running 24/7 you are either low on charge or the unit is to small for your house.
A 20° temperature difference is about normal for the room air vs the air coming out of the ducts, but the room air and the leaving air should keep getting colder and colder.
An air conditioner should cycle approximately 3 maybe 4 times in an hour if it's properly sized.
As for the thermostat thermometer they are very cheap and are more for reference than actual temperature, so if 78° is not comfortable, then you should set it lower but not rely on thermostat being accurate or what the thermometer is saying as long as it is consistent.
The air conditioner and thermostat can also be set below 78°, there's a lot of people set them at 72° and below with no problems.
the only thing is if you have real low humidity you'll need to watch indoor coil or the suction line (the big line) on your outdoor unit and make sure it doesn't freeze up on you.
