SOURCE: My air conditioner runs outside, but there is no

If your Indoor Coil is Froze Up, you need to shut the unit off and let it thaw out. After it thaws out for several hours, then turn the blower on at the thermostat, you’ll see a switch that says fan on/ auto
Move the switch to on and see if the blower runs if it does let it run another hour or so. Then shut it off and check your filter and indoor coil to see if they are dirty, if they are they need to be cleaned, if not then you are probably low on refrigerant. If the blower doesn’t run when you turn the switch to on then you need to check the blower out,
If your not familiar with any of this then you need to call a service tech.

SOURCE: apartment central air vent

It will usually be one of three things:
1. The vents are closed. Check that you can see up into the ducting. Usually there is a lever that opens and closes louvers behind the vent plate. If this is the case, you can open the louvers with the levers on the side of the vent plates to get your air. On older vents, the levers don't work very well, and may need replacement if this is the case. Not that you should, but I have opened the louvers with a screwdriver....It works....
2. A separated duct. Assuming that your ducts are overhead, the separation would be in the attic space.
3. An obstruction in the ducting. There may be a flapper that restricts air in one part of the ducting, forcing it more to the uther ducts. Sometimes these close off on their own accord and need to be reset for proper operation. An object in the ducting will cause the same problem.
I'd discuss this with your building maintenance team. The only item on this list that I'd take a crack at, if I were renting the apartment, is number 1. Even then, be very careful working on ladders. If you can see up into the vent, then there really isn't much else expected of you.
Hope this helps you. Regards, --W/D--

SOURCE: Blowing water out the vents.

There is a water pipe from AC to outside,
if a lot of gel inside the pipe, it can make water flow become jam.
Clean it by blow the pipe with a compressor from outside.
Sometimes I did it with my mouth. LOL......
But its worked finally.

The right type of vent for a moble home

Some vents are adjustable where as you can turn them at the angle you want get those if you can,the vents dont have to be for mobile homes only. Take one of your older vents to an air conditioner parts store they should be able to match one for you.

Odorless smoke coming out of my amana air conditioner is the problem odorless smoke coming out of my air conditioner wath is the problem?

That's a cool mist, like a fog. It's not smoke and occurs when the outside humidity is extremely high.
Be sure the air intake filter is clean and if it continues for a long time, raise the temperature setting of the AC a couple of degrees and allow it to run, until the mist clears. It harmless, so don't worry about it.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Duracaraft Humidifier DWM-250 series. It was working perfectly fine for 2 days. Then it stopped producing mist. I have cleaned the heating element, not used it for almost 24 hours just in case...

It may have a scale and mineral build up, prior to using bottled water.

To clean it, empty the tank of any water that's already in it and fill it with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Allow the solution to sit in the tank for 30 minutes, before turning the humidifier ON. Once the unit is ON allow it to run for at least 30 minutes, then check to see it if it's misting, by holding your hand in front of the nozzle. If it is, allow it to run until the tank is 3/4's empty. Turn the unit OFF, unplug it and pour out the remaining solution. Then fill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and run the unit for one hour. This will allow enough time, for the Distilled Water to flush the system. After that, fill it again with Bottled Distilled Water and use the humidifier as you normally do.

If it didn't start misting when you turned it ON. Allow the solution to set for 3 hours and then try it again.

Hopefully, this will solve your problem. It does 95% of the time. Please let me know if it worked for you. Thanks.

My 3-year old LG air-conditioner was leaking water. So i called some 'experts' to come fix it. This is the first time I called for maintenance service on the air conditioner. The 'experts' dismantled some...

White snow.. I had this issue when 2 inside unit electrical lines were hooked up backwards at the compressor. The compressor would pump too often and overcool the inside unit, because it was using the wrong temperature sensor. But you could have a different issue. I'd have them recheck your freon levels, that can cause it to cool too much - should be 120-135psi when it is running, after 5-10 minutes or so. They adjust this for the outside temperature though.

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

Air Conditioner Smoke

The smoke you are seeing is the cold air turning the hot humid air into a cool mist. This may happen when you first run the a/c to cool the room. Once the room is cooled down you should not see the mist any more.
