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...

Hi!!

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!!

How to cool big home with small air conditioner(s)


A lot of people have only one or two rooms that can take an air conditioner in the window. Often times, the air conditioner is also rated at a cooling power that would make you believe that there is no way that it can to cool the whole house/apartment. You can crank it to the max to try to cool as much as possible, but then this makes one room too cold and the others still stay too hot. You can try blasting the cool air down a hallway with a fan on maximum speed, but that only works so well. And, it's noisy, too. Well, I have two 260 sqr ft rated room air conditioners and I am cooling 2000 sqr feet of house to a comfortable 72 degrees in all rooms and it's been 95 outside all day. How to do it?

The trick is setting up your home to take advantage of laminar air flow. Set your air conditioner to say 68 degrees and start it in the middle of the morning before it feels hot outside. Put the AC deflectors pointing downward and towards the door. Put fans in the doorways pointing out of the rooms that have the AC. Point them level to the floor (not up) and put a fan to one side near the end of long hallways. Set the fans on the lowest power setting (not high). If the hallway branches out into a bigger room, put a fan in the room that is blowing across at a right angle to the entry, pointing the air flow parallel to the wall. This will circulate the cool air around the room. Keep the fans on low and pointed parallel to the floor, not up!

What you have created is a re-circulating air flow system, much like the North Atlantic Current that moderates the temperatures of Europe. You can check this by taking a tissue paper and holding it up to the top of the doorway. The air flow should be pushing the tissue away from the room without the AC and toward the room with the AC. This happens because the warmest air will be toward the ceiling and you want that warm air to make its way across the ceilings and back to the room with the AC, so that it can be cooled again. The cooled air from the AC will sink to the floor and the fans will gently push the air out of the room with the AC. It will stay low and travel along the floor in the opposite direction and into the warmer rooms. If you crank your fans up, you will create turbulent flow and that will not cool your house as efficiently as will laminar flow. Monitor the outside temperature and when it gets cooler outside by a few degrees, turn the AC to fan for about 10 minutes to eek out the last of the cooling. Then open the windows for the night to take advantage of the free cooling that nature provides. That's it! Enjoy the summer!

Depending on your ISP, you may have blacklisted and blocked. Yes, your ISP can see what you're doing and shut you down if you're using a P2P and it's very easy to spot. My company acts as an agent for an ISP and we do it a dozen times per week at extended stay hotels.

I live in a very small one room studio,and have a comfort aire window unit...air and heat.The heat works real well,but in the spring and summer,I would set the unit on the coldest setting.I can hear the...


Lets look at the output of the system first. Take your square footage of the area you are trying to condition and times it by 15. We try to get 15 Btu's per square foot of air conditioning. If your area is say 10 by 15, you have 150 square feet; times it by 15 = 2250 Btu unit is required. If you have a 5,000 Btu unit, it should be more than enough to cool the room. If this is correct, the problem may be because you have the unit set for Dry. In Dry mode, the compressor will cycle less frequently than if on Cool. If in fact the unit is on Cool, you may need to lower the temperature setting to fool the sensor from turning off the compressor prematurly. If you still can't cool the area, your unit has an issue with either refrigeration or air circulation and will need to be serviced.
