Blows very cold air during dehumidify mode.


se this fact: God bless you
air conditioning system cools but does not dehumidify the room. The most common cause of inadequate dehumidification by an air conditioning system is the installation of a cooling unit which has too much capacity, or is "over-sized" for the space it is being used to cool. What happens is simple:

If an air conditioning compressor unit is oversized (too many BTUH of cooling capacity) what happens is it cools the room so quickly that the system does not move enough total volume of air across the cooling coil to remove much moisture before the room temperature has dropped to the A/C cut-off point.

In other words, an air conditioner needs to run longer, and move more total volume of air through itself to drop room humidity than it does to just cool the air. So "bigger" cooling capacity or higher BTU capacity for an air conditioning system is not necessarily better, and it can actually be a problem.

How to close off rooms that don't need cooling...


You may be able to close off 2 of the 4 vents without any problems, but it's up to your system and your house if it works or not. This is the basics:

1. Your A/C is sized to the sq. ft. Of the living space it has to condition. 1 ton for every 400sq. Ft. Your outside unit is matched with the indoor coil and needs this certain amount of cfm's to operate correctly, shuting off too much air will usually cause the system to freeze up and become less efficient.
2. Shutting off returns will further cause problems because your pulling in less air than needed. A dirty filter will cause a similar restriction like closing off returns and the system will once again, freeze.
3. Leaving rooms unconditioned can cause the other rooms to become warmer. You can have the whole house conditioned except one room that has a high heat load and will cause the rooms around it to raise in temp. Kind of like having no insulation in the attic will leave your system useless.

So yes, you can try to shut off two of the vents, I wouldn't do returns, and see how your system holds up. There are many factors involved in weather it works or not. Hope this helps, have a good day!

Our 5-year old PANASONIC AIRCON is not cooling like before; it cools for about 2 minutes then the air becomes warm for about 5 minutes before cooling again. Overall, it cannot make the room cold but...


Your filter is clogged, causing the unit to oerheat. You need to pull at the top of the vented cover on the front of the unit. It will hinge down and allow access to the filter. Rinse the filter in the sink, and blott it dry between two towels. Reinstall it and you should be fine.

Cant keep cool


You need to check that tour filters are new. Then check that air is coming from the vents and is at least 15 degrees cooler than room temp. If no air coil is frozen, or blower motor and run cap are not working. If frozen than turn system to off and fan switch is on until you feel air through vents.
You'll need to make sure the outside unit is runing and the larger copper line is cold like a can soda. If it's cold but is freezing up, it needs to have a charge added. If its running but not cold and the fan is not running or the compressor isn't running it could have a blown capacitor. If its not running at all check. the circuit breakers and reset them. And a good idea to keep the outside unit washed with water,and that it is clear of weeds and stuff.

What's the difference between dry and cool setting and when should dry be used


Dry is a dehumidifier option. There is a heating element in the unit to heat the cold air back up. The cold evaporator coil causes the moisture in the air to condense on the coil (this is why the AC leaks water) and the air coming out of the vents will be cold. If you are not wanting to lower the temperature in the room but want to take out the moisture then use DRY. All ACs take the moisture out of the air when they are on COOL. So, COOL drys the air and makes it cold. DRY drys the air but warms it back up before sending it out the vents.

Doesnt cool room as in prev years


yes the side vents need to be outside the window and if they aren't - the unit will not cool correctly.

Hope this helps.

Air conditioner doesn't blow cold air. Continues


If the a/c fails to continue to blow cold there could be a few problems you can look for. First once you activate the system check to see if the compressor kicks in. You will hear the compressor humming . Once the a/c quits cooling go and see if the compressor is still running. If its not running its probibly gone into thermal overload (compressor overheated). If that is the case then you need to check to see if the coils are icing up if they are icing up then the problem is with 1) air flow restriction filter dirty, coils dirty simple repairs there replace filter, clean evaporator coil with a coil cleaner that can be purchased at a home repair store cleaning the condensor coil the same. 2) system is low on freon in which case the system will need to be recharged. Also, If you have a digital thermostat replace the batteries that may also be of some help. Good Luck on repairs

Cools for a while ... keeps running but stops cooling.


If the refrigerant has been accurately charged and diagnosed, I would look for an air restriction. Check your filter first of all. It sounds like it may still be trying to freeze up. Make sure all the vents are at least a little open and the return grill is not blocked. In the Rocky mountain region we like to see around 44- 50 deg. at the vents. 65 would tell us that everything is not ok.
