Room air conditioners frequently are difficult or impossible for the home handyman to repair, and central air conditioning systems are even more so. But here's help with several malfunctions that you can fix. Repairing a room air conditioner is not easy. If a problem requiring discharging the unit occurs, as is often the case, the home handyman probably would be at a loss since special tools are needed. These tools permit the system to be discharged so repairs can be made, and then vacuumed prior to recharging. It really doesn't pay to buy these tools unless you are going into the air-conditioner repair business.

They are expensive, and for what they cost, you could pay a professional for many repair jobs. However, failures are not always major ones. Sometimes a malfunction occurs which is within the scope of the home handyman. Even if you can't fix the trouble, it's nice to have an idea of what is wrong when dealing with a serviceman. That is what will give you a way to repair the trouble if it's within your capability and/or information that will let you know what is causing your problem. To understand what can go wrong, you have to understand what makes an air conditioner tick.

The principles discussed here apply to any air conditioner room, central or automobile. In an air conditioner (and refrigerant-causing gas to lose heat to air blown outdoors by fan. Cooled refrigerant recycles and home freezer, too) the fluid AN AIR CONDITIONER not only that does this chameleon act is called cools. It also removes moisture from refrigerant. One trade name that has the air, filters out dirt, and circulates becomes synonymous with the generic air. The result is a room, rooms term is Freon.

The typical air conditioner at least, of several major components, including a compressor, condenser, evaporator, and expansion valve let’s starts at the compressor, which is merely a pump that circulates refrigerant through the system. The outlet side of the compressor is the high-pressure side of the system. The inlet side of the compressor is the low-pressure side. The compressor is run by a built-in electric (capacitor-start) motor. A capacitor-start motor, which is discussed in detail in the chapter on garbage disposers, is basically a split-phase motor to which a capacitor has been added. The capacitor is wired in series with the starting coil to provide more torque for starting under a heavy load.

How to Protect Your Appliances in a Storm

Severe weather can mean severe damage to your appliances, particularly if whipping winds, lightning, heavy snow or rain knocks out your power. When power is restored it can cause a surge—a sky-high spike of electrical juice from the power lines that fries the electrical wiring inside your appliances. To protect your major appliance during the next storm, be prepared using these easy-to-do tips.

If the power goes out,

Turn off and unplug your appliances. Particularly important is the furnace, water heater, sump pump, air conditioner, dryer, refrigerator, and anything with an electric motor. Power surges can ruin or shorten the life of any appliance that’s left plugged into an outlet.
NOTE: If your basement is flooded, don’t try to unplug any of the appliances stored down there.

If you have ample warning, turn your refrigerator and freezer to high and allow to cool before the storm arrives. Unplug the appliance when the storm hits.
Move milk, cheese, cold cuts and yogurt into the freezer, which will stay cold longer than the refrigerator. Be sure to keep the refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible to prevent cold air from escaping. Throw a large blanket or comforter over the refrigerator to keep it insulated and save foods from spoiling.
NOTE: A full freezer can keep meat frozen up to 48 hours. Fill a partially empty freezer with water bottles to take up any available space.

If it’s cold outside, shut off the valve that lets water into your home and open faucets slightly. The dripping water will keep your sink’s pipes from freezing if the power remains out for a long period of time. Turn off the emergency switch on your furnace and drain your boiler by opening the valve at the bottom. Also, open all radiator vents.
NOTE: The water in your hot water heater should stay warm for a few days without power. But if the power outage continues for a few days, and the temperature outside is below freezing, drain the hot water heater to avoid freezing.

If you have a generator, don’t plug more appliances into it than the generator can handle. Use only heavy-duty, outdoor power cords to connect the appliance to the generator.
When appliance power is restored.

Shut off appliances before turning off the generator.
Wait 15 minutes, then plug appliances in one by one and turn on.
Fill the boiler with water then restart.
Reset the refrigerator and freezer thermostats back to their normal setting.
