Ageless Stranger ^^ I agree Jerry. It should definately have a drain.

Jerry Bransford I can't imagine the condensation, which can be considerable on some days, evaporating fast enough on a simple tray to not overflow and ruin whatever is beneath it. I'd definitely connect it to some kind of drain system.

Can't recall for sure...you're supposed to route the drain from the unit to an actual drain, but it sounds like that one's designed to just have it drain and evaporate in the pan. If you can, I'd route it to an actual drain though. Just my opinion...I have no clue what code is for that stuff.

sjlawr Thanks for all of the inputs. Turned out to be a leaking condensation line and needed a charge of freon.

drivebytruckerz Make sure your drain tube isn't stopped up. I'm not an expert or anything.. and I may be way off..

Ghosthiker Is your system in a basement with a separate condensation pump? Mine just did that. Turned out it was the pump overfill switch. When the pump fills up and doesn't pump, the overfill switch shuts the compressor down, but the fan keeps running.

Jerry Bransford If it's not working after trying what PecosRiver suggests, it could be low on refrigerant. There is a pressure switch on the compressor system that won't let the compressor turn on unless there is sufficient refrigerant pressure inside the system. A simple refill (recharge) will sometimes fix it but if the pressure is low, that usually indicates a leak unless the compressor is just super-old.

Also, the electronics that control it often runs on 24 volts which is usually provided by a small cheap transformer that converts the 110 volt house voltage to 24 volts. One of my two a/c systems stopped working after that transformer failed. I found a replacement transformer locally for only $10-12. I'm no HVAC guy but these types of things are seldom real complex.

Good luck with it, I hope you have an honest HVAC guy coming to your house.

PecosRiver Turn it off overnight and try it again the next day. Mine does that when the coils freeze up from continuous running during hot weather.

Home Air Conditioner

Any home HVAC experts out there? My home unit has stopped cooling, just blows hot air. I consider myself to be handy, but I know nothing about home HVAC systems. Any suggestions? I have a tech. coming to the hosue on Tuesday, but I am not even familiar enough with the system to know what he will be talking about. Thanks.
