    My FOMA(Norwegian) A/C system blows cold air when I turn it on to heat. Frost forms on the outside pipes very quickly.

SOURCE: Danby DAC5020 Air Conditioner fan works but not compressor

It could be as simple as being low on refrigerant. Depends on how expensive the unit is if its worth recharging and how big the unit is. Some small units will need to have a recharge point fitted which cost more of course.

Hi. I need help fixing my urka-a042jk10e Air Conditioner please. It's not blowing any air up thru the vents and my house is 97 degrees!


Possible that the compressor is not running. Call a service tech. Could be a run capacitor bad, stuck reverse valve or even a shot compressor.

I just replaced the fan and the capastitor on an outside air conditioner unit yesterday. Today it was blowing so cold I increased the temp. on the thermostat. Now it is blowing 77 degrees air instead of...


The air being blown at the condensing unit isn't the air that blows inside. I seriously doubt what you said about it getting so cold. I believe that the wires to the capacitor were improperly installed, and your compressor isn't operating. Don't confuse the outdoor fan operation with compressor operation (they both share the same contactor as a switch). On the capacitor, the brown wire connects to fan, compressor attaches to "HERM" common attaches to the contactor. I didn't mention the colors of the common or compressor wires because they differ among manufacturers.

You need to replace the fan capacitor. Your compressor is probably in thermal overload you can cure this by turning off the disconnect your ac voltage and taking a cool water hose and running over the top of the compressor for a while. Then turn your disconnect back on and listen and feel of the big copper line to see if it gets cold and also listen to see if the compressor kicks on.

How do I know if compressor of my house air conditioner is turning on when I start my air conditioner? When I start my air conditioner the fan outside the house turns on, the air is blowing from the vents...


if the compressor is starting there will be a very small dimming in the house lights,if you go outside to the unit and start it from the outside disconnect when the compressor starts you will hear a whine type noise coming from the outside condenser unit that is the hermetic compressor motor operating,no cold air can be a number of issues,low on refrigerant(not likely on the new sealed systems) a bad motor start/run capacitor(quite likely) a bad contactor on the outside unit that supplies power to the compressor,one leg of the 240volts that supplies the compressor power,the fan will run on 120 volts,but the compressor needs 240 volts check the fuses.breaker in the power panel

PROBLEM WITH MY AIR CONDITIONER


Is the outside unit running? if so can you feel warmer than outside air blowing from outside fan? If not your system may have a leak and pressures low. You can also check the piping to and from the unit larger one should be cold small one should be warm

Comp shuts off


Coils could be dirty. Compressor could be getting too hot and cutting off. Will have one fan motor that turns condenser fan and evaporator blower.

Air conditioner problem


You may have an extremely intolerant cold control, a weak gaurdette on the compressor, a compressor motor winding issue, or maybe an oversized unit for the area you are trying to cool.
