Faulty wiring prevents a system from getting power and can lead to the circuit breaker tripping. The wiring may be uncertified, haphazard or done improperly. This is a repair which should never be delayed as faulty wiring presents a fire hazard.
The outside fan transfers heat from the home to the outside. When this fan doesn’t work properly, this heat transfer doesn’t occur as intended which can lead to the air conditioning compressor overheating. The safety overload may trip as a result and the compressor may suffer internal damage.
When the coil of an air conditioning unit freezes up, this is often a sign that dirty air filters or blocked return air ductwork are preventing proper airflow. Frozen inside coils may also be a sign of low refrigerant levels.
A faulty thermostat could lead to the outside unit not functioning. Other things which can lead to this unit not working as designed include contractor problems or a lack of power.
Refrigerant is used by air conditioning units to cool the air. When this refrigerant becomes low, there may be a problem with the system. When the system must be recharged, this is a sign the system has a leak which must be located and repaired.
