Modern models of Admiral air conditioners provide not only cooling but a heating mode as well. Still most users use the appliance only in the summer. Therefore, the unit has downtime during the winter. But when the time to cool down comes, you turn on the air conditioner after winter and find that the appliance does not cool. As a rule, your air conditioning/fan sounds like it is struggling to cool your home. It is whirring louder than normal and it takes longer to cool down than before. If you face the same scenario, here is what you can do before asking for service. Your Admiral A/C runs without cooling:
- If the door or window is open.
- If there is another heating appliance working.
- The air filter is dirty.
- The air outlet or intake is blocked.
- The set temperature is too high.
Check the factors above and eliminate them to return normal efficiency. If there is enough power, the outlet is free, the windows and doors are closed and enough time has passed since you turned the appliance, but it has not become cooler, then it is necessary to diagnose the equipment. Measure the temperature of the air entering and leaving the air conditioner. The inlet temperature is measured at the air intake grilles. Place the thermometer on the surface or hold it in your hand. The output is measured in a stream from the outside or by slightly pushing the thermometer inward through the blades. You can check the outlet flow temperature with the values in the manual. If the temperature of the outlet flow exceeds the rating, then you should search for a problem inside the air conditioner. Dust, wool, hair clog the filters and disturb normal functioning. Therefore, the flow from the evaporator worsens: the radiator does not give cold well to the air, which leads to poor cooling. Dust can also clog the drain hose, then condensation will remain in the sump and then drip from the unit. Give us a call to unclog dirty filters and come back to normal cooling!
