Summer Is Coming – Is Your Air Conditioner Malfunction? Solutions to Problems (Part 02)

When summer arrives, you need your central air conditioner to work flawlessly, and even the best air conditioners on sale will develop problems over time. Is your air conditioner not cooling? Don’t be concerned. Sears Home Services’ heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) specialists will troubleshoot your air conditioner and get it running smoothly again. Use this air conditioning (AC) troubleshooting list to help you find and solve common air conditioner problems such as AC not cooling.

If your air conditioner runs for longer than it should, you will have a clogged filter. Check to see if cleaning or replacing your filter solves the issue. If your machine is old or undersized, it can work too hard, loop too often, and have trouble shutting down. Other issues that can trigger your air conditioner to run continuously include:

  • A faulty fan relay
  • The thermostat cable has a short.
  • A thermostat that has failed

If your central air system isn’t working, it might be as easy as adjusting the thermostat. If that does not solve the problem, contact a technician because your HVAC device can need to be fixed or replaced.

Within Air Conditioner Fan Isn’t Working

If your air conditioner’s indoor fan isn’t working, first check to see if a breaker has been tripped. If everything appears to be in order, inspect your air filter. If it’s clogged, you may be able to repair it yourself. Enable the ice on the evaporator coil and refrigerant lines to melt before checking to see if the fan is working. If it’s not running, it’s possible that it’s causing your coil to freeze. Since your technician may need to repair the contacts inside the fan relay, the fan belt, or even the motor itself, a frozen coil necessitates a service call.

Outside, the air conditioner fan is not working.

If your air conditioner isn’t cooling properly, you can inspect your outdoor device. Check the breaker or fuse box first if the outdoor fan is not spinning. If a reset does not solve the problem, there may be a couple of issues at play.

  • If your compressor is still operating, your fan’s motor or start capacitor might be malfunctioning. You should try moving the fan with a wooden stick to see if that helps. Don’t do it by hand because the fan could cut your fingers if it starts. If it still does not spin, you can contact a nearby technician. Switch off your unit before she or he arrives. If you don’t, you risk blowing out your compressor, which will be a costly fix.
  • Outdoor fan motor stuck: The fan could have been stuck due to dirt or rust. If the device needs more extensive maintenance, the outdoor fan motor can need to be repaired or replaced.

Once you’ve repaired your air conditioning system, make it a habit to have your local Sears air conditioning specialist come by once a year for a maintenance checkup. Regular maintenance will extend the life of your device, make it more reliable, and save you money on your energy bills in the long run.
