Question about Whirlwind FH-778 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Central air My central air unit continues to freeze up on the outside, as well as on the inside on top of the furnace. I had it checked and was told the return flow was the problem and to take the fliter off and make the return flow larger. This has done nothing!!! It continues to ice over. Any ideas? Please..it is sooooooo hot here right now. Have never had a problem with this and all of a sudden it is freezing up. Thank you

I HAVE A CARRIER CENTRAL AIR, THE OUTSIDE FAN IS BLOWING INWARD AND WON'T SHUT OFF WHEN THE FURNACE SHUTS OFF AFTER TEMP IS REACHED


Check the t-stat to make sure that the "fan" switch is st to auto. If not the fan is in the "on" position and is always on. Otherwise, It sounds like your "Central Air" is a packaged unit(Furnace and air all one unit outside the home) and the fan relay inside the unit is stuck. This need to be replaced. It is the rectangular unit with the leads from the fan motor attached to it.

Carrier A/C unit not cooling..but freezing refrigerant tube.


if the fan isnt running or you dont get enough return air (on the furnace) the coil will freeze up or if you have it set too low it will freeze up overnight, make sure your filters are clean, and that you dont have any return vents (air sucking in) covered with rugs and whatnot. If you have animals, the coil (on top of the furnace) could be clogged with hair, even though you change your filters it still gets clogged with hair and must be cleaned. if your coil was froze up you need to make sure it is completely thawed out, run the fan in the on setting with the a/c off until you dont see or hear any more water then turn it on again. and finially make sure when the furnace goes off (thermostat clicks and is satisfied) the outdoor condenser goes off as well the contactor could have been stuck in the on position. if you cant fix it call someone who can when your coil freezez up it can cause slugging in your compressor (liquid entering the compressor) which will destroy it !!!!!!!!!!!

What are the annual checks and servicing that should be done can these be done at home by a handy man?


Are you refering to a split system/ furnace and Central Air? Start with the furnace filter at the indoor
unit. Most newer furnaces do not have an oil plug for
the blower motor but it does not hurt to check to see
if it has oil ports.

You can take a thermometer and take a temperature difference across the coil which should be between
14-20degrees.

At the outdoor unit you can check the condensor fan
motor to see if it has oil ports. After you have the top
of the fan off to the side, you can take a garden hose
and wash the condensor from the inside to the outside of the coil.

You can start the cooling and make sure that hot air
is discharging out of the top of the condensor. Check
to see if the insulated suction line is getting cool.

Furnace runs on heat, air conditioner does not


If you have a Gas furnace in the Attic then the answer is yes. The outside condenser will not run if in fact you have a gas furnace.

It sounds like you might have a short in the wiring that goes from the furnace (inside part) to the condenser (outside part). Follow these lines by hand and check to see the wire isn't damaged and shorting out.

My central air unit keeps freezing up on the inside


1) locate the A-Coil (A-frame) inside the furnace. It is usually located in the furnace supply plenum located on the "down" side of the furnace plenum. If it is very dirty, there will be poor air flow generally in the house. This can cause the A/C to "freeze up" as the refrigerant is not getting enough heat to convert the refrigerant to a gaseous state.

2) The unit may be low on freon (or whatever refrigerant you are using). Contact a serviceman to check the unit.

Central Air, its a Trane, cools, however not very well. I think it needs a charge


First I would check your filters inside the furnace or air handler. Then if you have access I would check the a-coil. Sounds to me like you have a problem in the area of where the system transfers heat from the inside to the outside. Another thing that would'nt hurt would be to clean your condensing unit outside.

Check your filters inside the furnace, replace if needed. Then check to ensure that the fan is running inside the furnace. If these two things dont fix the problems, I would imagine you have low refrigerant issues. In that case you should call a service company.

Hope this helps ya please rate me.
