Common Air Conditioner Problems

Some of the most common AC problems that warrant emergency repair include:

The air conditioner won’t turn on
Weird noises or vibrating occur at startup or during operation
Warm air exits the supply registers
The unit hums, but the fan doesn’t turn on
The fan runs, but the compressor isn’t working
Water is pooling around the air conditioner

Why Has My AC Stopped Working?

There’s no power to the air conditioner.
This could be due to faulty wiring, a tripped breaker, or an overheated AC that has shut itself off. A technician can fix the wiring, reset the circuit breaker, and make sure no vegetation is blocking airflow to the outdoor unit.
The fan belt is worn out.
A squealing sound is cause for concern, since it could indicate the fan belt is wearing out. If it snaps before a technician replaces it, the repair could end up being far more expensive.
There is a refrigerant leak.
Hissing is a telltale sound that the refrigerant is leaking. This decreases efficiency and is bad for the environment. A trained Ceige technician will not only recharge the system, but will also replace tubing to prevent the leak from persisting.
The evaporator coil is frozen.
Continual operation at night, a low refrigerant level, poor circulation, and other causes can result in a frozen evaporator coil. This makes the air exiting supply registers feel warm. Turn off the air conditioner and contact a technician to make any necessary repairs that could prevent a frozen coil in the future.
The fan motor is defective.
This can prevent air circulation in your home. A technician may be able to repair the motor, or a replacement could be necessary.
The compressor is defective.
The fan runs, but the air feels warm because the compressor isn’t working. The compressor is one of the most expensive components of an air conditioner. Speak with your Ceige HVAC technician about whether a replacement is more cost effective than repair in this instance.
The condensate drain is clogged.
Algae, dirt, insect nests, and other debris can clog the condensate drain over time, potentially leading to water damage. A technician can flush the system and apply an algaecide to help prevent future clogs.
