Question about Air Conditioners

1 Answer

No cold air blowing out

We have air that comes out of the registers but it is not very cold and the fan on the outside unit will not come on. If we turn air off on the thermostat and then turn it back on we hear a click but nothing else.

    yes the click is coming from the outside unit. You can only hear it if you are actually outside by it.

Check for power at the outside disconnect and main circuit breaker in the main power panel of our house. If you have power at the disconnect and the contactor is clicking there may be a loose connection or burnt off wire at your contactor. There is a removable cover on the unit where the wire connections are and you can inspect it by removing said cover. If repairs are necessary disconnect power and remake connections.

Ac unit isn't blowing


It sounds like your freezing up at the coil, which in turn, blocks airflow across coil and only a small amount of air comes out of the vents. This also explains the cold air coming from fan on the outside unit, since the system cannot absorb the heat from the inside of the house through the coil. Your air outside is usually blowing out warm to hot air because thats the heat it rejects out of your system. I would turn the thermostat to "OFF" and turn just the fan setting to "ON" instead of Auto, this thaws the system out faster. Give it time to fully thaw, make sure filters are clean, and check airflow. If airflow is back to normal, your problem is more than likely the charge of refrigerant. If you have to call a technician out, make sure the unit is not frozen at all before they get there, they would not be able to do anything with the system froze. Hope this helps and good luck!

My a/c unit does comes on but it only warm air not


Make sure the outside unit is running, compressor and fan. Sometimes it is hard to hear the compressor over the fan. If the outside unit is not working check circuit breakers first. Set thermostat to call for a/c and make sure the contactor in the outside unit pulls in. If it does check capacitor for whatever is not running. If everything seems to be running fine hold your hand above the fan outside. The air coming from it should be hotter than the outdoor air. If it isn't get the refrigerant charge checked.

Ac fan on, blowing air, but not cold


Check outside unit if unit and compressor are running feel the large line to see if it is cold. If compressor is running and line is not cold possible charge problems. You may have a capacitor problem outside. they go out quite often. You can change this yourself, Open up outside unit and the cap is the silver bullet with terminals out the top. Bad cap can cause compressor to not operate and also the fan. You need to clean the coil inside or at leat check the coil to see if it is clean. You can clean theis with a toilet brush do not go against the coil bit brush with the fins. You may need to call a service tech but try these options first. russ

We have a fujitsu air con model ast9lsbcw which blows cold air from the outside unit and the inside unit is not cooling the room.


Sounds like you have it in heating mode or it is low on charge. In cooling mode, the outside fan should blow hot air not cold.
