Hello

This system uses r-22.
By law it will have to be recovered, it can not be bled in the atmosphere. Just FYI. Hope this helps you.
One way to determine what type of refrigirant you are dealing with is to let is set in a system that is not being run for 24 hours and use a pressure temperature chart to determine gauge pressure at said temperature.

Thanks
Zerko

It sounds like you may have electric heat. With that being the case and your description of a burning smell indicates an electrical problem. Since you did get it to start heating it sounds like a possible heat relay problem. I have also found burned connections and I was able to repair them and get the heat strips working again. If you know an air-conditioning and heating technician or electrician you should try to get assistance. The voltage in these units is dangerous and one mistake could only make things worse.

Ductless Split Air Conditioner Review


Ductless split air conditioning units are the very best thing for some situations. Of course they can be installed in the place of most any central air conditioning unit. They also are a very good alternative to window air conditioning units. I will explore the use of these units more closely and look at how they can be used effectively.
One of the many problems encountered by the professional is when they are asked to install central air conditioning in an older home that was never designed with air conditioning as even a possibility. The walls may be very thick stone. Often they have very little or no insulation. The floor structures may be rough cut lumber. The joists spacing may be random. Walls and ceilings are plaster and lathe. Basically everything is stacked against any type of ducted central air conditioning. Many log style homes also are not very easy to get any kind of ducted central air conditioning installed. The open ceilings and the bare log wall design does not allow for any kind of ducting. I'm sure there are other situations. These are the ones that I have come across most frequently.
If you have a home or building that falls into one of these categories you may want to investigate installing a ductless air conditioner. This type of air conditioner can be installed in almost any home or building. The small indoor unit can be attached to the wall with a few screws. Most of the units only require that a three inch hole be bored through the outside wall. In new installations the units can be placed on inside walls with some fore thought and planning. For installation in older homes or homes that are already built you will want to plan the units to be on the outside walls.
The outdoor condenser units can be placed up to one hundred feet away from the indoor units. One outdoor unit can be used for many indoor units. Up to four indoor units can be attached to the same outdoor condenser. Some very advanced electronics will control the operation of the condenser and compressor to supply the refrigerant to the indoor air handler units that are running at the time. With variable speed technology the compressor and the condenser fan will only run as fast as needed. This technology has become very efficient in the last few years. You do not have to give up any efficiency with these ductless split units.
Another advantage to these mini split air conditioners is that they can be controlled to run only in the rooms that you actually need air conditioning in. If you are not going to be in a room you can shut down the unit. The units also have timers that can be set to turn the air conditioning on or off at preset times. If you are not going to be home all day the air conditioning can be setback or turned off. The timer will turn on the air conditioning so that you return to a cool house. Central air conditioning is very hard to zone effectively. Also with large central air conditioning systems the outdoor compressor will be running at full capacity even though only a few rooms amy be calling for cooling. There are some central air conditioning systems that are do some staging and variable speed technology. These are not as efficient or as effective as the ductless split technology.
Ductless split heatpumps are another great idea to look at. For a few dollars more you can also very easily have heat from your air conditioning mini split. Then especially in the mild spring and fall weather you can have some very efficient heat with out starting up that big monster of a furnace or boiler in the basement. In southern climates the heatpump version of the ductless split system may provide enough heat year around.
Ductless split air conditioning is definitely something that can solve many problems for some homeowners. Add to that the many advantages of these units and you will find that they are worth every penny that you will invest into them. As with any project like this make sure that you screen your contractor. These units are not for do it yourself people. There are many things that need to be done correctly for these units to work properly and efficiently. A refrigeration license is also required to install these air conditioners.
By doing a little research and hiring the right person you will enjoy many years of trouble free service from your new ductless mini split system.

Where can I find a manual for my coleman cam II central air conditioner for a mobile home? I recently purchased the mobile home and would like to know what steps to ntake to make it work at its best. ...


Check the website for Coleman/Intertherm for a manual, you will need the model and serial numbers of the unit. The filters for these typically sit on top of the unit, some come with frames, some lay directly on the coil. If you can't find a manual on the website or by contacting the company, check the yellow pages some towns have a mobile home supply house that would be able to help.

There is not an air filter in the unit and we have just purchased the home with the unit in it. I need to know where the filter goes, Tjis a coleman evcon central air unit


You should be able to open the lower panel on the Central Furnance unit and the filter would go against the side where the main cold air return plenum is located. There is usually either a slot/edge for the filter to slide into, or a set of clips or a wire spring that holds the filter in place, preventing it from getting sucked into the squirel cage blower.

If you want to give Coleman a call at 1-877-726-5362, I'm sure they'd send you a owners manual for your unit so you can see what periodic cleaning and such is needed to keep it working properly.

Hope you found this info helpful. Best Regards!

I have an old 1985-86 coleman central heat and air need manual


The filter is located before the blower if your Coleman is in a mobile home it will be in the door facing. If it is a standard ac/heat application and a regular residential furnace the blower in the cabinet on down flow (ducts in floor) will be above it and possible in the duct connecting in the top. If its the other way (ducts in ceiling) it could be right under the blower. Either of these could have a filter cabinet on the furnace or could have a filter grille at the end of the return air duct (where the air is sucked in).

Ice is an indication that the refrigerant is not flashing off correctly in the evaporator coil. In most cases you can simply turn the unit off (until it completely thaws inside and out) and replace the filter. Make sure that all the vents in the house are open as well. If this does not work then you will need a technician to come out and check the refrigerant levels in the system. Ice can indicate that the refrigerant is low. I hope this helps.
