What you least need on a sizzling summer time day is an air conditioner that may not cool. There may be a number of causes behind AC not working or cooling issues, a few of that are technical faults and a few are non-technical. Here are some most typical causes behind AC not working cooling and how to repair it like a PRO!

Clogged Air Filter

If the air conditioner doesn’t cool, the air filter could be clogged. In such a case, air can not circulate correctly which enormously reduces the cooling capability of the air conditioner. Either clean the air filter or exchange it as wanted.

Soiled Coils

If the air conditioner is not cold sufficient the condenser coils could also be dirty and loaded with particles. In an AC, the condenser is sort of a radiator that dissipates heat (which was removed from the air). The condenser coil has to be clear to dissipate warmth outside. Because the coils get dirtier the air conditioner turns into much less efficient, which makes it work harder to chill the room. If the coils are soiled sufficient, the unit won’t ever be cold sufficient and won’t be able to chill the room.

Let’s take a look of how it’s looks like in actually. So you can imagine how much it will effect to the system.

Insufficient Coolant

The coolant circulates via the evaporator coils and cools the air flowing over it and ultimately sends cool air into the room. So when the extent of this coolant turns into insufficient, the AC fails to chill. At this stage call a technician for coolant top up and refill. If not it will be a very expensive repair.

Defective Compressor

A compressor is the main part of an air-con unit which is chargeable for cooling your room. If the air conditioner doesn’t cool, the compressor could be faulty. The compressor is a motor that compresses the refrigerant or coolant and circulates the refrigerant via the evaporator and condenser coils. If the compressor goes unhealthy the cooling cycle doesn’t begin and the AC fails to chill.

Defective Thermostat

A thermostat is a sensor that senses the room temperature and hints on the compressor to begin or shut down the cooling cycle. If the thermostat is faulty, the air conditioner doesn’t cool or could cool constantly. In this case, you should need to repair or replace the AC thermostat.

Faulty Components

Another potential technical cause behind AC, not cooling could be a defective run capacitor of the compressor, faulty management board, unhealthy thermistor, choked capillary, defective motor and so on. This will lead to completely repair for your AC.

Excessive Atmospheric Temperature

An AC has an optimum working temperature (surrounding temperature) at which it could actually work most successfully. If the temperature shoots up beyond the optimum temperature restrict, the effectivity of the air conditioner goes down. Generally, it’s so sizzling exterior. That the stage has reached where the compressor stops working completely.

Undersized AC

Typical mistake individuals make is that they purchase an AC primarily based on their finances and never based on the requirement of the room. A small AC in an enormous room will at all times discover it hard to chill the room in peak summers. The dimensions of the AC needs to be based on the scale of the room.

Defective AC Remote Controller

There will also be a situation when the remote fails to pass the temperature change indicators to the AC unit. An easy alternative of remote will do the trick.
