Hello,
To clean the vents around your room, just use a vacuum with a brush/hose attachment. If you do not have that available then use a light cleansing agent (mild soap and water) with a rag and scrub the surrounding areas you want to clean. Hope this helps! James

How large a space are you hoping to cool? One room? One LARGE room? One SMALL room? One floor of a two-story house? A whole four-story house?

What's your climate like where you live? Very hot, dry, year-round? Cool most of the year but two weeks of hot during the summer? Just a little too warm in summer? Blazing hot all summer, including nighttime?

How's the insulation in the building you want to cool? Is it a plain steel building with no insulation? Is it a trailer? Is it a frame house with 4" walls and R13 fiberglass insulation? An old frame house with no insulation? An adobe building? A timberframe house with 8" of polyisocyanurate foam insulation?

All these are important to know when you select an air conditioner.

For most of the USA, assuming a frame house with 4" of fiberglass insulation, a 10,000BTU air conditioner will cool one large room or two small rooms pretty well, or a 5,000BTU AC will do one medium-sized room. Different places, and different house designs, and different types & amounts of insulation, will all have a profound effect on how much AC you need/want.

From what you are saying, it sounds like the air conditioner is a lemon.

Sounds like the system is either over charged with freon or under sized. Call the same people back out ask for a supervisor to come out and check out the system any other company will charge you.

Air conditioner


You need to check the evaporator to see if it needs cleaning. You can check this by taking a dollar bill and see if it will hold it in place while running. Inadequate airflow will cause poor performance. Unfortunately ,this is something that would require removal from the window.You should use a coil cleaner made for evaporators from an a/c supply house. Another cause could be the condensor fan motor not running if it has a seperate fan.Hope this helps

The compressor sounds like the springs inside are bad. You can live with this are get the compresor eplaced if it is over five years old buy a new unit. Compressor will cost more than a new unit. Russ

Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan stops spinning after 15 mins


Capacitor, dirty condencer coil causing the motor amps to run too high. But most likely worn bearing on blade side of motor causing it to pull to one side causing it to over heat and shut down. Sleve bearings should have no side play.

Rheem Criterion II air conditioner runs but it does not cool


Check air temp out vent should be approx 20 degrees colder than room temp if it is your unit is too small for the amount of space you are cooling.Rule of thumb 1 ton(12,000btu's) for every 400 sq ft of uninsulated space
