If you are the owner of one of the three models of Aux air conditioner, the tables below may be useful for Aux air conditioner troubleshooting. The leftmost column contains information about possible faults and the rightmost column contains information about troubleshooting methods.

Aux ASW-H12B4-E Air Conditioner Troubleshooting

ProblemsCauses
The motor is heard operating but the air-conditioner dose not work when the indoor unit is powered onSince the air-conditioner is powered on, it will come to working condition as long as you press the ON/OFF button of the remote control and the signal is well received.
The compressor stops running but the indoor fan motor keeps working when it is at cooling mode with the indoor temperature higher than set temperature.If you turn off the air-conditioner and restart it immediately, it will return to normal in3 minutes, after that, the air-conditioner will automatically adjust the indoor fan speed to what you set.
The compressor works discontinuously at dehumidifying mode.The air-conditioner will automatically control the working of the compressor according to the inside temperature
The air-conditioner dose not work while the LED display is on.The Timers set with the air-conditioner, it will be in hold on condition. If the TIMER setting is cancelled, the air-conditioner will return to normal working condition.
The compressor works discontinuously at cooling and dehumidifying mode, and the indoor fan motor slows down.The compressor stops internally or the fan motor slows down to prevent the indoor heat exchanger from being frozen.

Aux EA Series Air Conditioner Troubleshooting

ProblemPossible CausesWhat To Do
Zoneline does not startThe unit is unplugged.• Make sure the Zoneline plug is pushed completely into the outlet.
The power cord is not firmly attached.• Remove the room cabinet and make sure that the yellow connector on the end of the power cord is firmly engaged.
The fuse is blown/circuit breaker is tripped.• Check the house fuse/circuit breaker box and replace the fuse or reset the breaker.
The unit is waiting for the compressor overload protector to reset.• This is normal. The Zoneline will start again after it resets.
Power failure.• If power failure occurs, set the mode control to STOP. When power is restored, set the mode control to the desired setting.
• There is a protective time delay (up to 3 minutes) to prevent tripping of the compressor overload. For this reason, the unit may not start normal heating or cooling for 3 minutes after it is turned back on.
The current interrupter device is tripped.• Press the RESET button located on the power cord plug or the box near the plug.
• If the RESET button will not stay engaged, discontinue use of the Zoneline and contact a qualified service technician.
Zoneline does not cool or heat as it shouldIndoor airflow is restricted.• Make sure there are no curtains, blinds or furniture blocking the front of the Zoneline.
Outdoor airflow is restricted or recirculated.• Make sure the rear grille is not restricted. This can cause the unit to cycle off due to the compressor overload protector.
• Outdoor grille must have a minimum of 65% free area.
The temp control may not be set properly.• Turn the control to a lower or higher setting.
NOTE The temperature limiter may be limiting the temperature range.
The air filter is dirty.• Clean the filter at least every 30 days.
The room may have been hot or cold.• When the Zoneline is first turned on you need to allow time for the room to cool down or warm up.
Outdoor air is entering the room.• Set the vent control to the closed position.
Burning odor at the start of heating operationDust is on the surface of the heating element.• This can cause a "burning" odor at the beginning of the heating operation. This odor should quickly fade.
The air is not always cool or hot during operationThe heat pump is not producing hot air.• This is normal. The heat pump will produce warm air but not as hot as air produced when the higher-cost electric heat is used.
The Smart Fan Auxiliary Controls may be set to continuous fan.• This causes the fan to blow room temperature air even when the compressor or heater cycles off. The continuous air movement provides better overall temperature control in the cool mode.
The air does not feel warm enough during heating operationThe heat pump alone produces air that feels cooler than desired.• Use the Electric Heat Option. This turns off the heat pump and warms with electric heat only.
NOTE: Use of this option will result in increased energy consumption.
The unit is not blowing out airThe Smart Fan Auxiliary Controls may be set to cycle.
The electric heating feature does not workThe power cord is not firmly attached.• Remove the room cabinet and make sure that the yellow connector on the end of the power cord is firmly engaged.
Temperature display flashesThe compressor may have failed.• Set the operation control to STOP and then restart the unit. If the flashing light reappears within 30 minutes, call for service.

Duo Therm Air Conditioner Troubleshooting

Duo Therm air conditioner Troubleshooting

Is your DuoTherm air conditioner on, but it is not working or is the airflow rate is insufficient? For DuoTherm air conditioner troubleshooting, you don’t have to call the repairman. Sometimes it is enough to understand the cause of failure and the way of its removal. The table below could help.

ProblemSolution
If the air conditioner/heat pump doesn’t run (the fan and/or the compressor)If the air conditioner/heat pump doesn’t run (the fan and/or the compressor), check the AC voltage. If the thermostat has no lights showing, it means it is not receiving DC power. The 12-volt DC fuse should be checked. You may also want to look at the breaker at the electrical source. To check your AC voltage when you arrive at your destination, plug in your electrical cord. Inside your vehicle place a voltmeter into a receptacle and start your air conditioner or heat pump. When the compressor starts after a two-minute delay, check your voltage. It must be over 103.5 volts for the air conditioner to operate
When the fan runs and the compressor tries to start but won’t runWhen the fan runs and the compressor tries to start but won’t run, examine the exterior heavy-duty long extension cord, receptacle and plug. If those are in working order, check the AC voltage
If the fan runs, but the compressor cycles on and off and doesn’t cool correctlyIf the fan runs, but the compressor cycles on and off and doesn’t cool correctly, it could be improper or poor air flow, a dirty filter, dirty condenser, short cycling (a duct leak) or the AC voltage may be the problem.
If the compressor doesn’t cycle at allIf the compressor doesn’t cycle at all, a qualified technician should check the filter (which must be clean) and the condenser. It is important to check the condenser to determine if it is blocked. The condenser is visible with the Brisk Air units, but the Penguin air conditioner shroud will need to be removed for inspection. If the condenser is blocked, the debris will need to be removed by a technician
Poor or improper air flowPoor or improper air flow, short cycling, a dirty filter or placing the thermostat on its minimum temperature setting and the fan on low speed in high humidity situations can cause evaporator freeze-up
It’s leaking! What should you do?First, this is something that should be repaired by a certified technician. The technician will take a good look at the mounting bolts, roof gasket and condensation drain holes. It is also good to be sure the technician checks for roof damage

ProblemCauseSolution
Air conditioner will not operate■ The power supply cord is unplugged.Plug into grounded 3 prong outlet.
■ The power supply cord has tripped (Reset button has popped out).Press and release RESET (listen for click; Reset button will latch and on some devices, a green light will turn on) to resume operation.
■ A household fuse has blown, or circuit breaker has tripped.Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker.
■ Depending on model, the Power button has not been pressed or the Fan Speed control is turned to Off.Press POWER or turn the Fan Speed control to an active setting.
■ The local power has failed.Wait for power to be restored.
Air conditioner blows fuses or trips circuit breakers■ Too many appliances are being used on the same circuit.Unplug or relocate appliances that share the same circuit.
■ Time-delay fuse or circuit breaker of the wrong capacity is being used.Replace with a time-delay fuse or circuit breaker of the correct capacity.
■ An extension cord is being used.Do not use an extension cord with this or any other appliance.
■ You are trying to restart the air conditioner too soon after turning the unit off.Wait at least 3 minutes after turning the unit off before trying to restart the air conditioner
Air conditioner power supply cord trips (Reset button pops out)■ Disturbances in your electrical current can trip (Reset button will pop out) the power supply cord.Press and release RESET (listen for click; Reset button will latch and on some devices, a green light will turn on) to resume operation.
■ An electrical overloading, overheating, pinching or aging can trip (Reset button will pop out) the power supply cord.After correcting the problem, press and release RESET (listen for click; Reset button will latch and on some devices, a green light will turn on) to resume operation.
Air conditioner seems to run too much■ The current air conditioner replaced an older model.The use of more efficient components may cause the air conditioner to run longer than an older model, but the total energy consumption will be less. Newer air conditioners do not emit the “blast” of cold air you may be accustomed to from older units, but this is not an indication of lesser cooling capacity or efficiency.
■ The air conditioner is in a heavily occupied room, or heatproducing appliances are in use in the room.Use exhaust vent fans while cooking or bathing and try not to use heatproducing appliances during the hottest part of the day. A higher capacity air conditioner may be required, depending on the size of the room being cooled.
Air conditioner cycles on and off too much or does not cool■ The Mode is set to Power Saver (on some models).Use Power Saver only when you are asleep or away from home, since the fan does not circulate the room air continuously. Use Low, High or Turbo for your best comfort.
■ The air conditioner is not properly sized for your room.Check the cooling capabilities of your room air conditioner. Room air conditioners are not designed to cool multiple rooms.
■ The filter is dirty or obstructed by debris.Clean the filter.
■ The inside evaporator and outside condenser coils are dirty or obstructed by debris.
■ There is excessive heat or moisture (open container cooking, showers, etc.) in the room.Use a fan to exhaust heat or moisture from the room. Try not to use heatproducing appliances during the hottest part of the day.
■ The louvers are blocked. Install the air conditioner in a location where the louvers are free from curtains, blinds, furniture, etc.
■ The outside temperature is below 65°F (18°C).Do not try to operate your air conditioner in the cooling mode when the outside temperature is below 65°F (18°C).
■ The temperature of the room you are trying to cool is extremely hot.Allow extra time for the air conditioner to cool off a very hot room.
■ Windows or doors to the outside are open.Close all windows and doors.
■ The Exhaust control is set to OPEN (on some models).Push the Exhaust control CLOSED for maximum cooling
. ■ Depending on model, the Temp/Time or Temperature control is not at a cool enough setting.Adjust the Temp/ Time control to a cooler setting by pressing the minus button to reduce the temperature or adjust the Temperature control to a cooler setting by turning the knob clockwise. Set the Fan Speed control to highest setting (Turbo or High, depending on model).

Fujitsu air conditioner troubleshooting

Fujitsu air conditioner troubleshooting

Although Fujitsu air conditioners are considered high quality products, it is not rare for them to suffer from malfunctions. In many cases, they are caused by minor issues and can be fixed in less than half an hour. If you are ready to try troubleshooting your home appliance on your own, check out the symptom your air conditioner is having in the table below.

SymptomProblem
NORMAL FUNCTIONDoesn't operate immediately:• If the unit is stopped and then immediately started again, the compressor will not operate for about 3 minutes, in order to prevent fuse blowouts.
• Whenever the electrical breaker is turned off than on again or the power supply plug is disconnected and then reconnected, the protection circuit will operate for about 3 minutes, preventing unit operation during that period.
Noise is heard:• During operation and immediately after stopping the unit, the sound of water flowing in the air conditioner's piping may be heard. Also, noise may be particularly noticeable for about 2 to 3 minutes after starting operation (sound of coolant flowing).
• During operation, a slight squeaking sound may be heard. This is the result of minute expansion and contraction of the front cover due to temperature changes.
• During Heating operation, a sizzling sound may be heard occasional. This sound is produced by the Automatic Defrosting operation.
Smells:• Some smell may be emitted from the indoor unit. This smell is the result of room smells (furniture, tobacco, etc.) which have been taken into the air conditioner.
Mist or steam are emitted:• During Cooling or Dry operation, a thin mist may be seen emitted from the indoor unit. This results from the sudden Cooling of room air by the air emitted from the air conditioner, resulting in condensation and misting.
• During Heating operation, the outdoor unit's fan may stop, and steam may be seen rising from the unit. This is due to Automatic Defrosting operation.
Airflow is weak or stops:• When Heating operation is started, fan speed is temporarily very low, to allow internal parts to warm up.
• During Heating operation, if the room temperature rises above the thermostat setting, the outdoor unit will stop, and the indoor unit will operate at very low fan speed. If you wish to warm the room further, set the thermostat for a higher setting.
• During Heating operation, the unit will temporarily stop operation (between 7 and 15 minutes) as the Automatic Defrosting mode operates. During Automatic Defrosting operation, the OPERATION Indicator Lamp will flash.
• The fan may operate at very low speed during Dry operation or when the unit is monitoring the room's temperature.
• During SUPER QUIET operation, the fan will operate at very low speed.
• In the monitor AUTO operation, the fan will operate at very low speed.
Water is produced from the outdoor unit:• During Heating operation, water may be produced from the outdoor unit due to Automatic Defrosting operation.
The damper opens and closes automatically• The damper is automatically controlled by a microcomputer according to the air flow temperature and operation time of the air conditioner.
CHECK ONCE MOREDoesn't operate at all:• Has there been a power failure?
• Has a fuse blown out, or a circuit breaker been tripped?
• Is the timer operating?
Poor performance:• Is the Air Filter dirty?
• Air the air conditioner's intake grille or outlet port blocked?
• Did you adjust the room temperature settings (thermostat) correctly?
• Is there a window or door open?
• In the case of Cooling operation, is a window allowing bright sunlight to enter? (Close the curtains.)
• In the case of Cooling operation, are there heating apparatus and computers inside the room, or are there too many people in the room?
• Make sure the lower air outlet is not choked with foreign matters, causing abnormal operation to damper.
• Is the unit set for SUPER QUIET operation?
The unit operates differently from the Remote Control Unit's setting:• Are the Remote Control Unit's batteries dead?
• Are the Remote Control Unit's batteries loaded properly?

Gibson air conditioners troubleshooting

Gibson air conditioner troubleshooting

Gibson Heating and Cooling Products became the result of a merger of two companies Belding-Hall (which produced ice-boxes in Belding, Michigan) and Gibson Refrigerator (founded by brothers Frank and John Gibson). The company introduced its first air conditioner in 1953. In 1959, they invented the “air sweep” method to improve the distribution of cool air from the air conditioner. Despite the high quality of Gibson products, air conditioners Gibson break down too. In this case, troubleshooting table below should help.

HAIER Room Air Conditioners air troubleshooting

ProblemSolutions
If air conditioner does not operate:• Check if unit is plugged in. The plug may have come loose.
• Check if the unit is in "Off" mode.
Air from air conditioner is warm:• The A/C setting may need to be raised.
Ice formation on cooling coils:• Outside temperature too cold Set the unit on fan only setting to defrost ice.
• Lower temperature setting. Temperature setting may be too cold.
• Unit BTU may be too high for the room.
Air conditioner working but room not cooling:• Room may have appliances that produce heat. Use an exhaust fan to remove excess heat.
• Redirect the airflow. Remove any obstacles.
• All doors and windows need to be closed so cool air does not escape the room.
• Air filter may need cleaning.
• Unit BTU may be too low for the required cooling area.
• On extreme hot & humid days air conditioners may take a little longer to cool.
• Vent may be in the open position. Vent has to be closed tor optimum cooling.
Air conditioner is making noise when cooling:You may hear sounds of air movement, water, compressor clicking on and off or window vibrations. Read Operating Guide - Normal Operating Sounds.
Water in the air conditioner cabinet:This is normal as your air conditioner not only cools but also dehumidifies the air. If there is water dripping inside the room, check the installation of the unit. The unit may need to be reinstalled.

Haier SAP-KRV9AV air troubleshooting

ProblemSolution
Does not operate immediately when the air conditioner is restarted.When the air conditioner is restarted immediately after being turned off, the overload protection switch will delay starting for three minutes.
An unusual odor is emitted from the outlet after operation is started.Clean the air filters. If the problem persists, the unit requires servicing. Please contact your authorized SANYO maintenance center.
Sounds of water flowing can be heard during operation.Occasionally there is a swooshing or gurgling sound when the air conditioner is started, stopped or when the compressor has started or stopped running. These sounds are due to refrigerant flowing and are not malfunctions.
Mist is emitted.When the indoor temperature and humidity are high, sometimes this phenomeno n occurs. It is caused by the room air being swiftly cooled down. After running for a while, the indoor temperature and humidity will decrease, and the mist will disappear.
A creaking noise can be heard when starting or stopping the unit.This is caused by the deformation of plastic due to the change of temperature.

PROBLEMCAUSE/SOLUTIONS
Air Conditioner Will Not Operate■ The power supply cord is unplugged. Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
■ The power supply cord has tripped (Reset button has popped out). Press and release RESET (listen for click; Reset button will latch and on some devices, a green light will turn on) to resume operation.
■ A household fuse has blown, or circuit breaker has tripped. Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the problem continues, call an electrician.
■ The Power button has not been pressed or the Mode control knob is turned to Off. Press POWER or turn the Mode control knob to an active setting.
■ The local power has failed. Wait for power to be restored.
Air conditioner blows fuses or trips circuit breakers■ Too many appliances are being used on the same circuit. Unplug or relocate appliances that share the same circuit.
■ Timc-delay fuse or circuit breaker of the wrong capacity is being used. Replace with a time-delay fuse or circuit breaker of the correct capacity.
■ An extension cord is being used. Do not use an extension cord with this or any other appliance.
■ You are trying to restart the air conditioner too soon after turning off the air conditioner. Wait at least 3 minutes after turning off the air conditioner before trying to restart the air conditioner.
Air conditioner power supply cord trips (Reset button pops out)■ Disturbances in your electrical current can trip (Reset button will pop out) the power supply cord. Press and release RESET (listen for dick; Reset button will latch and on some devices, a green light will turn on) to resume operation.
■ Electrical overloading, overheating, cord pinching or aging can trip (Reset button will pop out) the power supply cord. After correcting the problem, press and release RESET (listen for click; Reset button will latch and on some devices, a green light will turn on) to resume operation. NOTE: A damaged power supply cord must be replaced with a new power supply cord obtained from the product manufacturer and must not be repaired.
Air conditioner seems to run too much■ The current air conditioner replaced an older model. The use of more efficient components may cause the air conditioner to run longer than an older model, but the total energy consumption will be less. Newer air conditioners do not emit the ‘blast" of cold air you may be accustomed to from older air conditioners, but this is not an indication of lesser cooling capacity or efficiency.
■ The air conditioner is in a heavily occupied room, or heatproducing appliances are in use in the room. Use exhaust vent fans while cooking or bathing and try not to use heatproducing appliances during the hottest part of the day. A higher capacity air conditioner may be required, depending on the size of the room being cooled.
Air conditioner cycles on and off too much or does not cool room in cooling mode■ The air conditioner is not properly sized for your room. Check the cooling capabilities of your room air conditioner. Room air conditioners are not designed to cool multiple rooms.
■ The filter is dirty or obstructed by debris. Clean the filter.
■ There is excessive heat or moisture (open container cooking, showers, etc.) in the room. Use a fan to exhaust heat or moisture from the room. Try not to use heatproducing appliances during the hottest part of the day.
■ The louvers are blocked. Install the air conditioner in a location where the louvers are free from curtains, blinds, furniture, etc.
■ The outside temperature is below 61 °F (16°C). Do not try to operate your air conditioner in the cooling mode when the out- side temperature is below 61°F (16°C).
■ The temperature of the room you are trying to cool is extremely hot. Allow extra time for the air conditioner to cool off a very hot room.
■ Windows or doors to the outside are open. Close all windows and doors.
■ The Temperature control is not at a cool enough setting. Adjust the TEMP/TIME control to a cooler setting by pressing the minus button to reduce the temperature. Set the Fan Speed control to the highest setting.
Water drips from cabinet into your house■ The air conditioner is not properly leveled. The air conditioner should slope slightly downward toward the outside. Level the air conditioner to provide a downward slope toward the outside to ensure proper drainage.

• Is the remote control within its operating range or obstructed? Check the condition of the batteries and replace them if necessary.
• Check if the remote control is damaged.
Water leakage of outdoor unit• During cooling operation, water condensates around the pipes and connection joints.
• During defrosting operation, thawed water flows out.
• During heating operation, water on the heat exchanger drips out.
Noise from indoor unit.• The noise emitted when the fan or compressor relay is switched on or off.
• When the defrosting operation is started or stopped, there is a sound of refrigerant flowing in the reverse direction.
Indoor unit can not blow air• In HEAT mode, when the temperature of indoor heat exchanger is very low, air flow is stopped in order to prevent cold air. (within 2 minutes)
• In HEAT mode, when the outdoor temperature is low or humidity is high, frost will be formed on the outdoor heat exchanger. The unit will defrost automatically and indoor unitwill stop blowing air for 3-12 minutes.
• During defrosting operation, water or vapour may be emitted.
• In DRY mode, the indoor fan will stop blowing air for 3-12 minutes in order to avoid condensing water being vaporised again.
Moisture on air outlet• If the unit operates at high humidity for a long time, moisture will be generated on the air outlet grill and then drip off.
H1: DefrostingIt is normal. The unit is in defrosting mode and heating will recommence soon.
E3: Low pressure warningYour air conditioner has lost refrigerant. Contact your installer to check for potential leaks.
