Question about Heating & Cooling
I am in Florida on business and I'm staying in an extended stay hotel my AC was working fine until a week ago I woke up covered in sweat. When you are by the unit you can feel the cold air but its fan isn't blowing strong enough to properly cool the entire suite. I called maintainance and they said they could feel the air but coming in from the heat it feels cool to them BC it is hot outside but when you are inside it is diffirent they just ignore when i keep calling I have to keep my lights off at all time the unit is also making a loud sound like a struggling rattle is the best I can describe it please help! I am overheating!
It may be frozen over. At the front of the unit there should be an air filter. May be behind a panel that opens, or it may slide out. Behind that filter will be the indoor coil or evaporator coil. Look to see that coil and if there is any ice on it. It will be a white ice covering the coil. If it's frozen up, turn the cooling mode to off, turn the fan mode to on, and let it run at least a couple of hours to thaw. Let maint. know it's frozen up and needs service. Get what you pay for! If it's not frozen up, find some way to check the supply air temp. Some sort of a thermometer. It should have a 50-60°f supply air temp, depending on the indoor temp. Most I've seen will supply 45°f, but 50-60 is a good reference. Hope this helps! I bet it's frozen up.

Your inside cooling coil in the air conditioning mode could be frozen over. Change the fan setting to on and operate it that way when in the cooling mode. Turn the air conditioning OFF with the fan ON to clear the coil of frost which should take about 1 hour.
The fact that you have sweat on the large line means that the temperature of the gas inside the line is below the due point of the moisture in the air. A good tech would measure the pressures and temperature of the system to get what is called superheat to determine proper system charge of refrigerant.

Clicking sound is the contactor engaging to start the outside unit. Check for a burnt off wire at the contactor. For some reason you are not getting power to the outside unit. If you find a burnt off wire shut off all power to it then remake the connection at the point of the circuit break.

probably from the symptoms you describe the condenser fan motor has failed.If the fan is not running and the copressor is you need to shut the power off to the unit until it is repaired, the compressor can susstain damage from the lack of fan, and it is the most expensive component in the system to replace...

This means that the condenser fan motor (outside unit) failed, this caused to build hi pressure and either activated a safety valve to release the extra pressure or blew a line and R22 Refrigerant escaped from system.
The fix is to replace motor fan and capacitor find the leak and refill system with R22 Refrigerant Gas. It is safe to turn on the Fan Only mode on the Thermostat until a HVAC Tech arrives.
To perform this job parts and labor included will cost: about $300 -.$400. Look on the Yellow Pages for a Tech in your neighborhood.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to Rate this post!!
