May i asked what kind of thermostat you are using? is it a digital or a mechanical one.
it could be out of calibration..
try experimenting with it...
right now if your setting is 75 F and its cutting at 78F then try to lower the setting to 73 F and it might cut off at 75 F then you would know that you have a bad thermostat or a theremostat with a little bit off in calibration...

i hope i was able to solve ur problem

pls rate me...

tnx 4 using fixya..

Why does the unit keep on switching off after running for 2 minutes


Do not know what brand or model your aircon unit is? Sounds as if the temperature you want your unit to run at has already been reached. You need to follow these steps:
- select the temperature you want
- select the icicle icon for cool or thermometer icon for hot.
- select "auto" for your unit to cut in, or to cut off to keep your desired room temp.
For example - hot day 26 degrees and you want the temp in the room to drop to 19 degrees - the unit will shut off once it reaches 19 degrees if it is set to "Auto". Hope this gives you some clues to get it working. Please tick my this helped me box if my tips work. Good luck Gerri.

"I have a White Rodgers 1F78-151 thermostat and for some reason the system keeps shutting off every few minutes and never reaches my desired temperature i constantly have to set it to off than back to


Is this a gas fired furnace? If so it may be going off because one of the safeties is tripped. There is a high temp safety that will shut the unit down when this temp is reached. The usual cause is low airflow. Check your filters, if these are OK you may have a blocked coil which should be professionally cleaned.

My air stops running inside before it get to the temp. Its set for but the outside unit keeps running and after a minute or two the air will start blowing inside again but the outside unit never turns off...


you have a possible thermal overload problem in your furnace blower motor dirt will cause this problem when it doesnt allow air across the windings of the blower motor if not dirt the motors going bad and getting hot use a shop vac and eliminate dirt keep your filter changed and your evaperator a coil may also need checked for cleanliness this will require cutting into plenum my advice someone qualified and remember dirt kills

AC turn off before it reaches the desired temp


Hi there. I assume the indoor fan runs continuously until the house has cooled down. Clean the condenser. (outside unit)
Another possibility is that the system is getting low on freon. Check for leaks with soapy water at all joints and fix them.
Thanks

Air conditioner compressor keeps shutting down


This is due to thermal overload,Which can be caused by low oil in the compressor,the fan has stopped running on the unit outside,Dirty coils,or just a worn out compressor.Although this is thermal overload,It has nothing to do with outside temperature,But rather the internal temperature of the compressor itself.

I have a comfort zone furnace. If it's 50 degrees in the house, and i set my thermostat to 70 or so,it takes at least 24 hours to reach 70 degrees. The furnace starts up and runs normally for about five...


When the thermostat calls for heat it should run until the room reaches the temperature setting then shut off. Is the blower motor running and can you feel air coming out of the vents? It sounds like the blower is either not running or putting out enough air to keep the furnace heating. The blower moves the heat from the heat exchanger to the room, if it can't remove enough heat from the heat exchanger there is a limit switch that will shut the burner off if it gets to hot and that's what it sounds like is happening.

Delonghi cf210 when setting temp it dosnt give any heay


just bought one.It looks like the thermostat has problem. Set at 78 F, it runs forever and the room temp is 72F. Set at 79F, it runs, room temp shows 73 F, sometimes 75F or 77F. The Ac is on then off every 5 minutes even the desired temp (is set) reached. Lousy machine.

Window air conditioner HWR08XC7


Could be a lot of things, make sure the temp sensor is clean and is in a position to sense the air temp flowing over it. Other than that it could be out of calibration.
