Your fuses can have continuity and you still may not have high voltage to run the unit. Check your circuit breaker in your main power panel. It should be marked for the A/C .

The term for the cooling coil is Evaporator. The condensing unit is the outside unit and it does not have a drain.

My coleman air conditioner 7300 series is leaking water on the inside


Water in an air conditioner is generally condensation building up on the indoor coil. This happens when the temperature of the coil is below the current dew point of the atmosphere. You have possibly two issues going on.

1) the condensation drip line, which carries the water to the outside is blocked or disconnected (most likely blocked with wet dust build up etc) and can typically be cleared by using an air hose to blow the blockage clear.

2) excessive water can be an indicator that you may have a slow leak in the refrigerant system. reduced pressures will lower the temperature of the coil causing it to condense more water, more frequently. While you might enjoy the seeming better performance of the unit, if there is a leak it will eventually reach a point where the water will freeze(cutting off the air flow so no cooling) and eventually stop working altogether. Have a certified technician check your system for leaks. Remember that most rooftop units use R-22 refrigerant, not R-134a automotive refrigerant. The wrong refrigerant in the system can be very damaging to components and seals, and can cause the unit to function improperly.

I have a Tempstar 5000 that is about 15 yrs old and the fan motor to the outside unit will suddenly stop working and the compressor will start making a loud humming sound that does not sound too good. I...


Hello
Sounds like the condensor fan motor is going bad.If the fan stops turning or is not turning at full speed, the compressor can not give off heat to the condensor.Which will cause it to shut down on high heat.

So i would start with a new fan motor.Your local heating and cooling supply house should have these in stock.

Hi, I just purchased this used. It was working fine for one day, but now it won't turn on. Can u help? Haier CPN12XH9 12000 BTU Portable Air


If the water collection tank is full, it will not turn ON. Since you said the unit worked fine for one day and now it won't turn ON, more than likely, that's the problem. After draining the tank, the unit should reset itself and turn ON like it should.

The drain plug is on the rear of the unit, just above floor level. You can either drain it into a low sided pan or bowl that's capable of holding up yo a quart of water. O r roll the unit to a floor drain or outside to drain it. If you choose to drain it into a pan, turn the unit OFF & unplug it, before draining it.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa

I have a portable air conditioner model LP0711WNR. My issue is when I drain the air conditioner, it only drains about one cup of water. Then, when I turn it back on it and use it, after about an hour it...


The easiest way, is to tilt it over slightly when you drain it. But, be very careful doing this, as the unit has caster wheels and you don't want it to get away from you. If you have a helper, so much the better. Remember to always turn the unit OFF & Unplug it, before draining the water from the tank.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

The haeir window ac unit is tilted to the back but the water won't drain it is spraying out the front vents when running


From what you have described, it sounds like the drain pan under the unit is clogged. Cleaning and unclogging it, should solve the problem.In the meantime, discontinue using the AC until the problem is solved. As the water spraying out the vents, could cause and electrical short in the unit. That's in addition to getting water on your floor.

RUUD Air Conditioner not turning on


Need to check the breaker to the unit at the electrical breaker box. You should have a dual 60 amp breaker that runs the unit. Also if you removed the front of the furnance on the inside the system will not work unless the front of the furnance is on. There is a safety switch that will not allow the system to run with the door off. There could be the problem if the breaker is on and electricity is supplied to the unit that switch may be out and need replacing. The furnance is operated on 110 volts the condensor (outside section) operates on 240v you need to insure that the proper voltage is supplied to both.
Since both units work together yet operate seperately if the furnance comes on and the condensor doesn't then there is an electrical problem at the condensor (more than likely the contactor switch) if the condensor comes on and not the furnance then there to is an electrical problem (either 110 volts not supplied) or the switch to the safety cut off is bad. Now if neither furnance nor condensor comes on there could be improper power to both or a bad thermostat since the thermostat activates both furnance and condensor. Good Luck on repairs

My Unit is running but is saying it is full


yes you do need to drain the water that has built up. there is a little hose with a plug in it located at the bottom rear under the exhaust hose. but be sure to drain it somewhere so that you don't ruin your floor. the water of course builds up from the ac's condensor. It doesn't take all that long to get full either.
