MY AC WORKS FOR FOUR HOURS PER DAY AND BARELY COOLS DOWN THE HOUSE, NOT MUCH AIR COMING UP TO THE UPSTAIRS OF THE HOUSE. AFTER 4 HOURS, THE OUTSIDE UNIT SHUTS UP AND NOT MORE COOL AIR COMES IN. BEFORE THIS...


I am not understanding exactly what is happening with your unit. You say it only runs for 4 hours a day and then say that after 4 hours the outside unit shut off. But you don't describe the condition of the outside unit! Is there ice on your outside unit after it runs for four hours or is it so hot that the housing would fry an egg? Since it works for four hours and then stops working, I would guess that ice forms on the condenser grill which tells the thermostat that your air is much colder than it actually is. Then it takes time for the ice to melt off again. Am I close? If so this condition is usually caused by your unit being low on freon making everything work harder. But it could also mean that you have a leak in the system somewhere. But it shouldn't be much of a leak or it wouldn't run for the 4 hours.
I would recommend you charge it to the correct level and then check for leaks.

My air conditoner blows cold for maybe 15 minutes than warm


Are you using a "very powerful" AC to cool off a relatively small space? The AC has a thermostat, if the return air is meeting set point, the compressor would stop. The fan could still be circulating, hence the perception of warm air. What you should do is don't block the ventilation, and direct the cold air toward the ceiling. The cold air will sink (due to higher density) and create better circulation and temperature mixing.

I cannot get our house cooled down. We have a RTH230B Honeywell thermostat. The central air has been running for 24 hours. I set it to 72F and our house is still 82 degreesF


Did you go outside and check the exterior housing? Look for oil on the pad; accumulation of leaves, etc that restrikes air flow; and is the exterior fan running? I doubt if it is your thermostat!

On the interior, you should see some water coming from the condenser exhaust hose also.

AC not cooling during the day


Your AC cooling efficiency is low when he ambient temperature is high and naturally it cools well when the outside temperature drops.

Please remove the filter on the grill and try to clean it under the tap water and after removing all the dust fix it back to the unit. This would increase the cooling efficiency of the unit.

Your AC is also five years old. Please avoid frequent opening of doors or windows.

Ensure that the exhaust fan and the blower of your unit are functioning normal.

The technician might not have done a proper job in fixing the area where the refrigerant would have leaked out. Please check the refrigerant pressure to ensure that no further refrigerant leak has taken place. Or even servicing your unit he would have punchered the tubes resulting in very slow leak of refrigerant resulting in no cooling or less cooling. It takes around a month to feel the pinch of it and the refrigerant. One fine morning after sometime the unit will run and it would start throwing hot air instead of cool breeze!

Get it looked at quick, before your exchangers crack, because the furnace not cooling them down after operation will lead to failure, and the replacement is not cheap, close to the cost of a new unit.

Temp control moves on it's own


Mine was doing the same thing and it was really frustrating! I would come home and it would be 88* inside. I found out that this model air conditoner has had problems with moisture getting in the control panel and shorting it out when it's humid outside. I have the part number if anyone wants it. It cost me about $45 from Sears Parts.

The cooling coil is more than likely iced over stopping the air circulation. Put the fan control in the on position and turn the cooling to off. After an hour or so the ice will clear from the coil and air circulation will be re-established. Then return to cooling and leave the fan control in the on position when in the cooling mode. This will provide air circulation to melt any ice from coil during the off cycle.
