Problem: A/C Repeatedly Turns On and Off
  • Turn the A/C unit off and look for debris that may be surrounding the evaporator coil or clogging the fan.
  • Inspect the air filter for dirt or debris.
  • Remove any debris.
  • Change or clean the air filter if it’s dirty. (This should be done monthly, for best results.)
Problem: Water Leak
  • Check the drain hose or pipe for blockages or kinks.
  • If blockages or kinks are present, remove debris and clear the line. (The pipe should be cleaned quarterly to make sure water flows freely to prevent future issues.)
  • Check the drain for any holes.
Problem: A/C Unit Won’t Turn On
  • Check the electrical breaker to ensure it didn’t trip off.
  • Check the compressor to make sure it didn’t shut down.
  • Ensure the panel next to the compressor didn’t shut down; it could require a reset if it is off.
  • Check for leaks in the condensate pump hose line.
  • Make sure that the condensate pump is secure in the outlet.
Problem: A/C Unit Doesn’t Blow Cool Air
  • Turn off the A/C unit and check the condenser coil for dirt.
  • Check for debris that could be clogging the coils or system.
  • Check the condenser cover on the outside unit for debris and remove any.
