Re: A/C problems
Sorry it took so long to get back to you! We took a cruise down the bay to Virgina Beach for two weeks.
I can think of three causes for your problem off hand.
1. DIRTY AIR FILTER.
2. Water flow restriction.
3. Temp sensor or Temp sensor wire connection.
Remove and clean the air filter and screen w/ hot water and mild soap. Let it air dry, do not hand dry or use air compessor. Reinstall and try again.
Next, make sure intake t-hall valve is completely open. Then check/empty your strainer and check for a blockage to the output of the strainer. Then get a large bucket and take the water input hose off the a/c unit and place into bucket. Turn the system on or jump wire the intake pump and check the water is flowing forcefully. (two person job, bucket will fill fast) If all is well reconnect and then flow water through system and check that its discharging overboard at the same rate or slightly slower.
Finally, Did you run antifreeze through the system during the winter. If not the temp sensor may have been damaged by some ice forming in the lines. Also remove the temp sensor wire harness and make sure that you have a good clean connection and pins are intact and not corroding.
After that I would consult the pros, you may have to change the compressor. Easy job but costly!
If you have any other questions, just ask.
