Simple DoItYourself Repairs For Your Air Conditioning Unit

So follow the user's handbook, and if you've lost it already, request an additional copy of the same from the company. And to find the fault better and quicker, opt to fix your air conditioning unit on a day that is relatively warm.

Be sane while you fix it. Cut off the power flow to the system while you are at it. The air conditioning unit usually has a shut off panel for this. But, just in case you do not see any such panel, cut off the electricity to the whole house for that time. Also, rake away all debris from the condenser outside while you kick off the cleaning task.

The initial step to identifying where the fault is is to take the grill cover off the condenser. Then, clean the blades or fins with a soft brush or some soft material, making sure to see that you do not harm the fragile fins in any way. After cleaning these, you need to dry them. Next, remove the screws and take out the grill-cover extremely carefully, since the fans remain attached to them, and you may mistakenly pull loose some wires. Then you need to hose out the fins, keeping the motor covered with some water resistant material.

Since you have already dismantled your air conditioning unit so much, you might as well lube the motor a little in this circumstance. Finally, put back all the parts in their right places, and you are finished with a short and basic air conditioning unit repairing effort.

Now, to see if you've actually set all of it right, switch the power on and let the equipment run for some time. Put your hands on the two pipes connected to the condenser. If one is warm and the other is cool, your system is all right. But, if it isn't so, possibly you need to recharge the refrigerant. And this can't be done alone. So call a professional.

If your air conditioning unit does not turn on automatically, you may have a look at the following actions. First, guarantee that the thermostat is set to cool, and is below the room temperature. Second, a blown-out fuse may also be the reason as much as a tripped breaker on the main panel. Third, keep the power switch on the heater and the condenser switch on the outside turned on. Fourth, but not least, guarantee that the 240-volt disconnect is not turned off. It is placed just next to the outside compressor.Findlay Ohio Air Conditioning Repairs\nCompany
