Question about GE AJCQ08ACB Air Conditioner
Installed new condensing unit, and just had a new evap core installed,worked great for three weeks, now blows warm. When you turn off system for a few hours and restart it it works ok for awhile then blows warm.had ac tech come out and of coarse it worked good,he said pressures are good and freon ok,evap core temp was 22 degrees when he removed the cabinet cover, I thought maybe it was freezing up, but there is no water or condensation in drain pan or on evap core. thanks Funtz

I have the same unit and live in a "historic" building. If it's hooked up to a power line with a breaker, or any power bar it will eventually turn off the condenser and flash. Check if yours does this flashing routine...you might need a fatter power cord going directly to the socket.

Sounds to me like you may have a faulty compressor. It may need to be replaced. Yes it could have a restriction too. There is a way to break open the system and flush it out and add freon again.

Hi, Sounds like you have a leak in the lines somewhere and it is low on refrigerant (Freon). If the evaporator spends very much time below 32deg it will freeze up and you will feel very little air coming from the vents. The evaporator will have ice covering at least part of it depending on how much refrigerant is has in it. No refrigerant, there will be no ice or water. If the unit is properly charged, the larger of the two refrigerant lines at the condensing unit will sweat all the way back to the compressor but the compressor should be fairly dry. Restricted air flow will also cause one to freeze so check your air filter. If the ac tech thinks that the evap temp was ok at 22 deg, find another ac tech. 22 deg evap means its either too low on Freon, refrigerant filter drier is stopped up, a blockage in the refrigerant lines, too little air flow across evap coil or it could be that the evap and cond are sized wrong. The evap temp has to be above 32 deg. If it has Freon in it, you can use soap bubbles to check for leaks at the solder joints. Turn the unit off first for pressures to equalize. Let me know. kstfas

Ours was leaking water. After taking the covers off,cleaning it,and draining all the water out, I started getting the same problem with the light coming on every 7 minutes. I actually added some water to the system till it was too full and then drained it out through the plug. The light still came on every 7 minutes until I turned the unit off and then unplugged it for a few minutes. I plugged it back in, turned it on and reset the temperature. It seemed to reset itself and kept running normally. BB

First check your coil behind the filter. If this coil iss clogged the unit will over heat and cause the compressor to shut down. It sounds as if either the evaporator coil (inside) or the condensor coil (outside) may be clogged. If the unit is icing up on the inner coil then that coil is clogged or low on freon. I would think it would be cloggged instead of freon problem. To clean this coil you can go to the hardware store and buy a can of coil cleaner and use it following the directions The outer coil you would have to remove a/c from sleeve and take the unit outside. Using a water house flush the condensor coil from the outside in to remove debris.. These coils should look like a brand new car radiator when you finished cleaning. Reinsert the a/c back into wall sleeve after letting the water evaporate from the unit as to not spill water through out the area. Good Luck

The issue with your Air Conditioner can also be due to thermostat failure or due to a blown fuse. The thermostat is connected to the compressor. It won't cool if thermostat is bad.
The usual terminals on thermostat are--
