The compressor has 2 lines that feed the coils. the small one should be hot and the larger one cold. if they are the same temperature, its either not pumping or out of gas. If this helped at all, please grade me. Thank you. Roger

Amcor amb 12000e, starts to cool and after a few minutes the unit "shudders" and starts to heat. Not sure why, please advise. Thank you

You are almost out of freon... call a service co... DO NOT run this unit until you get it charged.

Hi, i just bought a second hand amcor air conditioner but it dosent send hot air, what can be the problem?

Air conditioners normally blow cold air, unless it has a built in heat pump. You should post the model with your questions.

How do i add refrigerant to a amcor kf900e portable air conditioner"

The compressor picks up the gas that is bringing the heat removed from the house to be compressed to liquid and cooled in the condenser coil When running the compressor is very hot. When the freon is low the compressor will be cooler because it doesn't have as much heat to compress. To add freon you must add a service valve to the low pressure line.

Not getting heat on heat cycle.

Does the unit work at all? It uses a heat pump and what that means is that the unit inside does the same thing as the outside unit. When you switch from heat to cool the condensor (outside) becomes the evaporator (inside) and if it is not working the compressor, switch, and freon needs to be cheched.

AIr does not cool very well. It used to do better. Can I check the freon charge?

look under the hood for the reciever dryer, its black and about the size of a soda can, it has a little clear glass in the top, start your engine, turn on the air check for the compressor running and look in the sight glass and see if you can see liquid with a few bubbles going by, if no liquid or bubbles its possibly low on freon

Does not heat or cool

Hi, If the outdoor unit is running, make sure the fan is on also. If the system is new and has just been installed, it sounds like you may have a freon leak and have lost all its freon. Turn it on cool and let it run for a few minutes. Go outside and grab hold of the larger copper line coming out of the unit. It should be nice and cold and sweating. If not, and the fan and compressor are up and running, you have a leak and lost its charge. Check this and get back to me and let me know what you have found. We can go from there.
PS, When these installers put these units in, they sometimes get in a hurry and there welds are not very good and will leak over time, just to let you know.

Amcor af11000e air conditioner. The fan runs, but doesn't cool. The compressor tries to turn on but just clicks back off at regular intervals. The compressor light is on.

it is either the capacitor or it has no freon you can replace cap but not add freon not worth it. you should return it if you can

Not cold enough

Check the air coming out with a thermometer. It should be approximately 20-26 degrees colder than the air being sucked in. If it is less than that but it is cooling, there is most likely a freon leak in the system causing it to be low on charge
