Question about Air Conditioners

1 Answer

My air conditioner is blowing hot air instead of cool air.. what is wrong with it? a/c is blowing warm air. i checked the circuit breakers, all okay. check both fans, all okay. i pulled the filter, just a little dirty. i pulled the main panel off the unit and checked for a dirty coil, all okay. The unit is 2.5 years old and is suspended in the air in my garage. is there a clogged drain. should i get the bleach out? please help.

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

What is wrong with my Goodman AC unit?


Sounds like it has no power getting to it at all. Dont forget that some circuit breakers have UP as ON and some have DOWN as ON. Do not just assume a common way is always the same. You may even have to have one UP and the other DOWN as on. Check what the switch or circuit breaker has written on it to be sure.
AIR CONDITIONERS run like a refrigerator, they manufacture their own Heat or Cool and blow air past the unit to give hot or cold air to cool or heat the Room. These do not require flowing water.
Sometimes people (wrongly) call EVAPORATIVE COOLERS air conditioners. (An evaporative cooler just blows AIR past flowing water to humidify the flowing air and therefore "cool" the area)
An evaporative cooler therefore would require running water and without flowing water, the unit may not start due to the installation of a "fail safe" switch. An evaporative cooler would generally have a large box mounted on your roof with open sides with filters which are kept moist by the running water and through which the fresh air is sucked and pumped into your home.
There are varying thoughts on both, I personally consider the REFRIGERATED style as the most effective type, but they are more expensive to install and run.

Ac BLOWING HOT AIR INSTEAD OF COLD. All of a sudden my AC started blowing hot air instead of cold. It is set on cool.


Check to see if your outside unit is running. If not, check the breaker. If it is running you may have an issue with the reversing valve. It looks like three lines coming out of the top and one on the bottom. Trace the wires back to see that they are tight and secure. Of course, TURN OFF THE POWER first. good luck.

My air conditioner is blowing hot air instead of cool air.. what is wrong with it? I have a Freyven mini split and the compressor turns on and off in a matter of seconds. It doesn't cool the room at all....


first if it turns on and off does this trip the breakers?? I'd recommend you to change the combination capacitor and check against wiring diagrams probably a misplaced wire that can do what your describing. check that you have your remote set on cooling to 21c or 72 f if you need any other help e-mail me at hvac.tech7872pr@gmail.com
