Since it is not so hot outside you may have to adjust the Thermostat to a lower setting to get the AC unit to kick on the compressor and blow out cold air. Give it a try, and if not the T-stat then we can go from there.

Why does it just blow cool air?


Check outside condensing unit. Should feel warm to hot air blowing out of the top. If cool to outside air temperature blowing off you likely have a refrigerant problem

If you had the door open for that long you will need to unplug and allow the ice buildup that happens when door is left open to thaw. After this you need only to plug the refrigerator back into the power source.Let me know what happens It is not going to work correctly until this is done. Sea Breeze

SOLEUS KFHHP-22 - Heater doesn't blow air at all, warm or cold. Cooling works great but no heat.


Doesn't matter how hot it was when installed, there still should have been proper start up performed. That means running unit thru all cycles and checking charge. If it was installed this summer then installer should warranty service to return and complete install properly.

A non programmable digital cheap thermostat indicates low battery. replace with new battery. still not cooling. is there a reset when replacing the batterly. can a low battery cause the system to stop...


No, The only thing you may loose replacing the thermostat battery's would be the time/date. All default pre-programming will not be lost. The thermostat controls the unit. If the unit is coming on then the t-stat is working. Confirm the unit is coming on when the T-stat tells it to.Turn the t-stat to the off position, have someone go outside to the condenser unit. Turn the unit on and listen for the fan and the compressor (2) different sounds from the unit. Feel the lines that connect to the house, the larger line should feel cool to cold and the smaller line should feel warm to hot. If you do not hear the compressor, or suspect it is not coming on with the fan, then you may have some other issue. In the heat we have been having one good suspect is a bad compressor start capacitor. The fan comes on but not the compressor,,this is a good indication the cap. is bad.. On the wall by your outside unit is a power disconnect. Open the box and pull the disconnect or flip the breaker to the off position. Now have someone turn the T-stat on and wait a minute then off and wait a minute, on and off ... you should hear a relay clicking on/off or in/out inside the control box of the A/C unit. When in the on position you should hear a slight buzzing sound also once the relay pulls in, this will tell you the t-stat is telling the unit what it should be doing. If all this is good then your unit is just is not cooling right and needs further troubleshooting. Hope this helps FixYa up.

A/c runs cool for about 20 minutes and then does not cool anymore. keeps running but does not cool.


Is the compressor still running or has it kicked out? The normal problem is that the unit is low on freon and the compressor is not cooling because of this. If the compressor is kicking off an feels hot to the touch but the inside coil is sweating when the compressor kicked off the compressor is going bad. On an outside chance the thermostat can be going out if you turn it to off or all the way down you should hear an audible click and again when you turn it up normally its good if the click is audible. good luck

It is freezing inside, and it is not cooling properly


Welcome to FixYa,
Check the Following
Is your filter clean? Look and the evaporator in the inside unit. Is it frosted up? Do you have condensation water in the pan? Go to the outside unit and feel the air coming out of the fan. Is it warm? Now feel the 2 copper pipes coming out of the unit. Is the small one warm or hot? Is the larger one cool ? Is there moisture on it?
Air conditioner runs but doesn't cool at all
If the airflow is good and the air coming out is not cold, your home air conditioning problem may be a temporary problem - your coils may have frozen. Turn the unit off for an hour to let them thaw, then try again. If cold air is now present, freezing coils were the problem; if the problem recurs soon after turning on, you may need to replace the coils. Again, call a pro. If you have ceiling vents in upstairs rooms and the air flowing from them is consistently warm, you probably have leaky or poorly insulated ductwork in your attic. See my Attic ceiling insulation page for more information on insulating ductwork that runs through attics.
Another likely home air conditioning problem if you have good airflow but no cooling is that thebreaker to the outside unit is shut off, which, depending on the installation, can either cause the air conditioning system to not run at all, or to appear to be running but not provide any cooling. If you can hear the compressor fan running outside, the breaker is on, but if the outside unit is silent the outside breaker may be off. If switching it on does not solve the problem, look for the high pressure cut outon the condenser and try resetting that.

Fan clicking before starting


If its a DC type variable speed , its big bucks! I typically replace with normal cheap AC type if failure out of warranty, far less money and more reliable!

Will not cool properly.


You have either a faulty thermostat, dirty condenser and evaporator or a faulty run capacitor. Need to service soon before the compressor is damaged. Sea Breeze

What is the Dry setting on air conditioner?


Hi, I know this question's been up a while and I'm not sure if you care anymore but here goes anyway.

Most air conditioners are reverse cycle, so they can heat the air in your house or cool it down. What we are concerned with is the cooling side of things. So in this mode a working liquid is sprayed into the evaporator and cools its immediate surroundings. air is blown over the evaporator which cools the air. The local temperature around the evaporator is very cold, (how cold exactly I'm not sure) so the air in this region has a very poor ability to hold water and so (especially on a humid day) water condenses out of this air on the surface of the evaporator, is collected and drained away. The cooling function and dry function both use the "cooling" mechanism of the air conditioner. Both extract water from the air in this way but the primary purpose of the cooling function is to cool the air whereas the primary function of the dry setting is to dry the air... obvious I know.

Now in the dry setting the compressor will run with fan going at I imagine a relatively slow speed to chill and extract as much water from the air as possible and to minimise circulation. After a short time the compressor and fan will cut-out and then after a short interval start up again (I'm not really sure but I assume this is either controlled by a humidity sensor OR the temperature sensor monitors for a small change in temperature and shuts off the compressor and fan when it detects this). Now in cooling mode (depending on what temperature is set) the compressor will run for longer and more frequently and therefore remove more water. So why have a dry mode if cooling mode removes more water?... Well that really has the same answer as the question "when do I use dry mode?"

Well on a particular day where the temperature would normally be considered comfortable but on this day it is unusually humid, your body will find it difficult to radiate heat via sweat because of the already high RH (relative humidity) making you uncomfortable and feel "hot". Using dry mode will reduce this RH without adjusting the temperature by much, but you will perceive an ambient temperature drop due to your body being able to discard heat more easily... hence making you more "comfortable" in same way you would normally feel at that temperature.

On the contrary if you were to use cooling mode (which is regulated by temperature) you would have to set a temperature lower than ambient so that the compressor will "kick-in" rather than the air conditioner just running its fan...agree? So that means the air conditioner will reduce RH (which we want) giving you a perceived temp drop but it is also chasing the temperature which you set which will give a REAL temperature drop. So anyway the point is; if it was an unusually humid day on what would otherwise be a comfortable temperature, using cooling (remember the temp has to be set lower than ambient) instead of dry would result in you feeling cold very quickly due to the perceived AND real temperature drop.

So really the dry setting is for days which aren't too hot, but are humid.

I think my logic makes sense.

cheers Matt
