First off go outside the A/C while its running and see if your getting a strong hot or warm air flow coming out the back.You want to now go inside ,shut the a/c off and remove the filter that is or should be covering the front inside the front plastic cover.It may be hard to remove the cover panel but it's most likely going to be pulled out with it on.The filter is a large square cleanable filter.Using a dry paint brush or vacuum clean this filter and re install it.Now check A/C again.

If the freezer is working fine than you have an air flow problem.
This could be caused by the fridge not defrosting.
This would cause an ice build up in the air passages.
It also could be the dampers in the fridge.
If they are not opened this would stop the air flow.

Hope that helps........

Hi,

If it is making a continuous noise, and your air conditioner is still not cooling at all, there may be a serious problem with one or more of these areas:

  • Compressor


  • Condenser


  • Evaporator


These items are not user serviceable. You will need to contact a qualified appliance repair technician to repair these components.

If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the air conditioner there may be a problem in one or more of these areas:

  • Compressor


  • Overload and/or relay


  • Thermostat (Open thermostat)


  • Burnt wiring


  • Bad selector switch


  • Capacitor


The air is cool but doesn't seem cold enough If the air doesn't seem cool enough it is necessary to use a thermometer to check the difference in temperature between the air going into the unit and the air being blown into the room. Ideally, the temperature difference should be more than 15 degrees. For example, if the temperature going into the air conditioner is 80 degrees, the temperature coming out of the unit should be at least 65 degrees or less. If the difference is 15 degrees or more there is probably no cause for concern. If the temperature difference is less than 15 degrees you should check the following:

  • Air damper


Check to make sure the air damper is closed. If it's open, it will bring in outside air and reduce the efficiency of the unit.

  • Back cover


During the winter season many people cover their air conditioners to protect the unit from the weather. In the spring or summer they will sometimes forget to remove the cover. If your unit has a cover on the outside portion of the air conditioner remove the cover first.

  • Condensing coils


The condensing coils will always be on the "warm" side of the air conditioner. That is, on the side that faces outside of the room to be cooled. Air is drawn into the back of the air conditioner on the sides through vent slots and is blown directly out through the condenser coils. If the coils get clogged with lint, dust and dirt the cooling system cannot provide the cooling necessary. To clean the coils it will be necessary to remove the entire cover of the air conditioner or pull it out of the wall to gain access to the coils. They can be cleaned by blowing compressed air at them or by using a soft bristle brush to wipe the dirt off. It is important to also clean any dirt or lint build-up in the bottom of the air conditioner so the condensate water will be picked up by the condensing fan slinger properly.

    Also check the following if it doesnot cool the room



    • Make sure the air filters are not dirty.

    • Make sure the air inlets and outlets of the indoor and outdoor units are not blocked by objects.

    • Make sure the temperature setting on the remote controller is appropriate.

    • Make sure the doors and windows are closed.

    • Make sure the air flow and direction settings are appropriate.

    • Make sure ventilation fans in the room are not operating.

Our wall mounted air con is set at 16 degrees but it is not cooling the house at this temp. Could it be the thermostat


most wall mounted ac units are designed to only cool a room, not a house
close all the doors to the room along with all windows
generally a 3kw unit (32,000btu )will cool a room 12ft X 12 ft X 9 ft quickly but anything bigger, the time that is taken to bring the temp down gets longer and longer depending on the setting and 16 C is far too low

Why does it interfere with the A/C?


this all depends on the location of the thermostat that will only cool the area where it is at that tempature that you have it set on if you have a hotter room then you have to either turn it up to a higher setting cooler or make sure your ducts are open or insulate that room better it is to hot

Its not cooling down even though I can hear the motor running


Set System Switch to Cool and lower setpoint below room temperature.
Verify thermostat and system wires are securely attached.
Diagonistic: Set System Switch to Cool and lower the setpoint below the room temperature. Within a few seconds the thermostat should make a soft click sound. This sound usually indicates the thermostat is operating properly. If the thermostat does not click, try the reset operation ( . If the thermostat does not click after being reset contact your heating and cooling service person or place of purchase for a replacement. If the thermostat clicks, contact the AC manufacturer or a service person to verify the cooling system is operating correctly.

Projector heating up and bulb shuts down


The ambient temperature in the room is to high.
Try lowering the room temperature. If that doesn't work
get a small fan and place it near the projector to provide
extra cooling. The projector is running border line on
high temperature and just needs a little extra cooling.

Our brand new kitchen aid oven will blow hot air for up to a half hour after it has been turned off. This seems unusually long- what is the expected time of cooling off?


Hi,
That depends on the ambient temperature in the room..if your room is fairly warm you can expect it to take longer then if the room is cool...
I would say though that 1/2 hour is pretty normal...it is good to get the unit cooled down, the less time it is warm the longer it will last... heat kills ovens...even though they are made to take heat...

The 10,000 BTU portable room a/c unit is not running cold enough


Make sure your vent is closed. check the filter to see if its clean. If you run the a/c you can check your evaporator to see if you have condensation or does it freeze up?
Make sure you have your unit on early in the morning. If you turn it on in the afternoon the humidity might be too much and it will take along time to cool down.
Try those things if that doesnt work then you need a service call.
