Sound so simple< (dirty Filter) .This unit is trying to find air anywhere it can , even from the drain tube which sucks the water out the drain tube and hold it in the drain pan ,and when the unit shuts off, it dumps it ,. Anouther reason if this is an older unit (over 20 yrs. old) the pans were made of metal and could be rusting thru! (today, they're made of plastics) The a.c. supply house NOW has solvent you can pour in standin water guaranteed to seal leaking pans. Thank-you-very-much!

Your unit needs cleaning.

when fan is running, it creates a vacuum that hold the water from spilling from your unit, then at auto, as the temperature is reached, the fan would stop and the vacuum that keeps the water from spilling would disappear and starts to leak water.

have ti clean....

that would eliminate your problem..

tnx 4 using fixya,

When the air condition reaches the set temperature to cut off the blower motor keeps running and i have the thermostat set to auto on the settings.


check the operators manual but you will probably find that the fan will keep running so that the air in the room is circulated past the thermostat so that the temperature can be monitored and the compressor switched on when the temp reaches the upper limit

Freon doesnt stay in. It keeps dripping out. Dealership quoted over $800. Is there a temp fix to this problem?


nope.depending where it dripping from.if its from a metal air con hose joint then its a $2 o ring seal and some re gassingif its from the compressor then it could also be leaking compressor oil, and if it has been running with no oil then it could be rooted mate.if its leaking from behind the dash then it could be a little tricky.
take it to a recommended auto mechanic with an air con license and he will ascertain the location of the leak.
$800 is what you would expect to pay to install air con to a car that hasn't got it already

Where can I get a manual for my Emerson Quiet Cool Room Air Conditioner? Not sure the model, but these #s were on outside of box: 10DC93 784040B OE21M N14421, is on a little sticker on the right...


Let see if I can help. The numbers don't come up so we'll just try your information.

Exhaust - should be closed when using for Air Conditioning
Energy savings turns the fan off with the compressor when set for Air Conditioning
Fan Only means just that (no Air Conditioning)

Fan speeds Quite same as low, Norm same as medium, Super same as High
Temp settings, what the thermostat senses before cycling compressor.

Have installed a new Honeywell thermostat. The fan does not turn off even when the room has reached the desired temperature. I originally replaced th ethermostat because the old one the fan ran forever and...


Most T-Stats have a On / Auto on a forced air system. On means the fan will run all the time even if it is not calling for heat. Auto only runs when calling for heat. Does the fan turn off in the auto mode at all? To test it...BE SURE THE FAN IS IN THE AUTO MODE ON THE T-STAT... Turn the thermostat all the way down and keep it there for appox 15 mins. If it is wired properly and the fan limit is set properly the fan should turn off. If it doesn't it is not the thermostat were the problem lies.

Most forced air units have a fan / high limit switch. There is a setting on the switch for the fan to turn on and a setting for the fan to turn off or it has a setting and a differental switch for it to turn off/on. Example - the fan comes on when the temp in the heat exchanger reaches 110 degrees F and will shut down at 95 degrees F after the thermostat is satified...this would hav a differental of 15 degrees F. It may be set to low and the fan continues to run long after all of the heat has been removed from the heat exchanger. This in turn will cause cool air to be coming out of the registers.

My honeywell Thermostat reaches the heating temp. but the fan will not stop running.And yes the fan is set to auto.It just keeps running and running and running.It stays the same temp but will not shut off...


I want to give a simple explanation before I go any further. On the heating side of a unit even though tthe temp has satisfied the thermostat, the fan will run until it cools down the plenum where the air flows from the air handler. There is a bimetal switch called a fan limit that operates the blower when the plenum reaches the temp set on the fan limit switch. Now if your fan keeps running even after the plenum chamber has cooled down, then you could have a fan limit switch that is stuck in the run position and must be replaced in order to correct the problem.

AC turn off before it reaches the desired temp


Hi there. I assume the indoor fan runs continuously until the house has cooled down. Clean the condenser. (outside unit)
Another possibility is that the system is getting low on freon. Check for leaks with soapy water at all joints and fix them.
Thanks

  • The PCM doesn't even see the O2 sensor until engine temp has reached operating temp,the vehicle goes from open loop when cold,to closed loop when warm,where the PCM uses the O2 sensor to measure the rich/lean of the exhaust content,and from that,adjust fuel richness to achieve 14.7 to 1 air/fuel ratio.So when cold,the O2 sensor is out of the picture anyways.When unplugging sensors,it can be deceitful.The PCM has a program whereas,if a critical sensor (such as the mass air flow) is somehow damaged and out of the picture,the PCM will substitue a generic value that will allow the engine to stay running.So,by unplugging the MAF,it did try to run on it's own better than plugged in,there's the problem area.The vehicle is running better with the MAF unplugged,because the MAF is likely bad,and the PCM is substituting it's generic value when it IS unplugged.Something to recheckThe PROM update is a newer program for the PCM,and likely won't fix it unless the PCM is bad.I would try a good used PCM as a last or later resort,because i have seen my fair share of defective PCM's too.I have taken some PCM's apart,and found capacitors that had gone bad and leaked all over the circuit board,mostly Honda and Mitsubishi and Chrysler though.Good luck,keep me posted.
