AC having problems

Evaporator is freezing up with block of ice and that stops cold air flow. When it melts by turning it off, it will work again till the ice reappears.

Try running the AC with a higher fan speed and also use the setting to introduce warmer outside air into system to combat this situation.
If you have a tad of refrigerant removed the pressure will be lower and the compressor will turn off more often.

Why does my ac not blow cold air?

You have to try resetting the system. First turn the breaker off for the condenser and wait about 20 seconds After you turn it back on the system should reset. If you need any other assistance check us out online at Boca AC Service we are always happy to lend a helping hand

Rheem AC raka-030jas. not cooling house. New filter, power to entire system, new batteries in thermostat, condenser coils cleaned, no ice on lines, indoor blower is working, outdoor condenser and fan

Its possible that you have too much Freon and also if the fan in the condenser is coming on you need to make sure the compressor is running too. Some of them are quiet. Grab the line and see if you can feel refrigerant running through them to see if the compressor is running.

Mitsubishi ac keeps on turning itself off

If the compressor overheats, the clixon circuit will shut off the power to the motor to prevent damage. Then when it cools it will close the circuit and the compressor will again run to only shut down again.
The suction line going to the compressor should be cold - the cold gas returning to unit cools the hermetically sealed motor. If that line is hot you may be low on refrigerant.

I think my goodman refrigerated air system may iced up. How do I know and how do I thaw it so I can cool my house

Hello, usually the suction line will begin to ice up ( the pipe with insulation on it) if there is a airflow problem or a low refrigerant charge, to thaw it out just turn off the ac and set the thermostat to fan. Now the unit will need to be serviced because if it keeps running this way the compressor can get severly damaged.

Temperature in house want go down. Don't know if it's the therostat or ac unit

Most likely the A/C unit if the house doesnt feel cool. Look on your refrigeration lines and check it for icing up anywhere on the line if you have that shut the unit down immediately. That means your possibly low on freon, dirty filter. If there is no ice on the line check the condenser (outside unit) and see if the air is hot which it should be if its not your compressor might not be kicking on. hope this helps

I have a new kenmore ac unit model 580.75101500 i bought about two weeks ago and installed last week. its been blowing ice cold as it should no problems until today. Now the ac turns on runs about 5...

Take it back or call Sears. A 2 week old unit should not do that. I'll assume the settings are right like set on AC Auto or Max cool and not just fan. Are the coils icing or were they icing behind the filter? If not, I think it may need to be serviced.

My window Ac unit wont cool, I had problems with the cooling element icing over but now the ac wont kick on the fan still blows, and Iv only had this unit for two weeks.

You are low on freon. There is a pressure switch that will not allow the compressor to kick on in order to protect the compressor. The freezing up of the unit is an indication of a leak or air flow blockage.

The fan is coming on but the compressor is not.Even after the unit has been off all night (long enough to cool down or ice to melt) the compressor does not come on.

All window unit compressor have a thermal breaker mounted on it. It is to protect it from overload. On a hot summer compressor work harder to keep us cool. Sometimes this thermal breaker fails for good. Unplug the ac. Open it, on the compressor there is a bulging thing sometimes cover with rubber. Thats the thermal breaker. Check its continuity. If you don't have an ohmeter, just byspass the two terminal of the thermal breaker with wire. Plug it in, but be carefull, turn on your ac. The compressor should come on.

Non cooling

If the running capacitor is bad the compressor will draw above average amperage and the overload protector will cycle the compressor off. You should take it in for service.
