Question about Sovereign ARP-900E Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Strange smell The A/C has been operating normaly until last week. we used it 2 weeks ago with no problems. It wasn't used for one week. The next time we went to use it there was a strange smell with the cold air. I have since removed the case and used Clorox wipes to clean the squirrel cage. I did not notice any mold. I noticed some rust stains at the bottom of the radiator (the cold one). The rust was around the bottom of both side supports for the cooling pipes. I could just faintly smell the scent when I sniffed the fins. I could also faintly smell the scent on the squirrel cage fins. I replaced the styrofoam and turned the unit on. The smell was still there, and as strong as last week. Could I have a coolant leak? What would that smell like? How can I check for a coolant leak? Is it time to call in a pro?

Have you cleaned the evap coil? Most often smells come from the evap coil. A bleach type product used for cleaning will solve this problem. Thanks

2006 Cadillac cts is burning gas faster than the normal rate after i got an oil change at jiffy lube 2 weeks ago

I dont think there is a connection between an oil change and the gallons per mile.
With that age car, I suggest a Terra engine clean. It will blow away nine years of gunk from the spark plugs, fuel injectors, cylinders and exhaust. Should give you more power, more miles..

I have a problem,I bought a apple i pod mp 3 player a few weeks ago at a flee market,worked fine up until last night I accidently went into lock screen and it went off and now I don't have a clue to...

There are 2 ways to try and unlock it if you don't know the passcode.

1) Connect your iPod to the computer set as the primary one in iTunes. Open the iTunes application, then disconnect your iPod from the computer, and it should no longer be locked.

Only use this next option as a last resort because it is a destructive process.

Everything on your iPod will be erased.

My cell phone (just got it about 6 weeks ago) just went wasn't that the batter wasn't charged I don't think....It would fade in and out over several hours and now its being charged...

If your Phone is only 6 weeks old then you are entitled to FREE WARRANTY REPLACEMENT. So before you attempt any trials it is best to check this out.
The battery must last at least for over two years in the worst case and so this can be a case for claim.

Engine light comes on intermittently after car shimmies

Even though the light went out, there should still be a code stored in the computor.Without the code, or testing this and that to pin point the problem it's hard to say. I don't want to tell you replace this or that without knowing. It would be a waste of money for things you don't need. good luck.
