Crosley Air Conditioner Troubleshooting

If the diagnostic is not so complicated, then repair becomes quite easier. Not every breakdown can be fixed on your own. But there are also simpler ones – for example, if you cannot switch on your air conditioner, you need to firstly make sure that it is connected to the power grid, and that electricity is supplied. The table below shows a list of main malfunctions and methods for their elimination.

A household fuse has blown or circuit breaker has tripped.Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. Make sure the air conditioner is plugged into a properly grounded outlet as described in the Installation Instructions.
The local power has failed.Wait for power to be restored.
Air conditioner blows fuses or trips circuit breakers.
Too many appliances are being used on the same circuit.Unplug or relocate appliances that share the same circuit.
Time-delay fuse or circuit breaker of the wrong capacity is being used.Replace with a 15-amp time-delay fuse or circuit breaker of the correct capacity. See “Electrical requirements” in the Installation Instructions for the correct capacity.
An extension cord is being used.Do not use an extension cord with this or any other appliance.
You are trying to restart the air conditioner too soon after turning it off.Wait at least 3 minutes after turning air conditioner off before trying to restart the air conditioner.
Air conditioner seems to run too much.
The current air conditioner replaced an older model.The use of more efficient components may cause the air conditioner to run longer than an older model, but the total energy consumption will be less. Newer air conditioners do not emit the “blast” of cold air you may be accustomed to from older units, but this IS NOT an indication of lesser cooling capacity or efficiency. Refer to the efficiency rating (EER) and capacity rating (in BTUs/hr.) marked on the air conditioner.
The air conditioner is in a heavily occupied room or heat- producing appliances are in use in the room.Use exhaust vent fans while cooking or bathing and try not to use heat-producing appliances during the hottest part of the day. A higher capacity air conditioner may be required depending on the size of the room being cooled.
Air conditioner cycles on and off too much, or does not cool room in cooling mode.
The air conditioner is not properly sized for your room.Check the cooling capabilities of your room air conditioner. Room air conditioners are not designed to cool multiple rooms.
The filter is dirty or obstructed by debris.Clean the filter.
The inside evaporator and outside condenser coils are dirty or obstructed by debris.Clean the inside evaporator and outside condenser coils.
There is excessive heat or moisture (open container cooking, showers, etc.) in the room.Use a fan to exhaust heat or moisture from the room. Try not to use heat-producing appliances during the hottest part of the day.
The louvers are blocked.Install the air conditioner in a location where the louvers are free from curtains, blinds, furniture, etc.
The outside temperature is below 65?F(18?C).Do not try to operate your air conditioner in the cooling mode when the outside temperature is below 65?F (18?C).
The temperature of the room you are trying to cool is extremely hot.Allow extra time for the air conditioner to cool off a very hot room.
Windows or doors to the outside are open.Close all windows and doors.
The temperature set point is not at a cool enough setting.Adjust the temperature set point to a cooler setting. Set FAN SPEED to TURBO.
The air conditioner is installed on the sunny side of your house.Install your air conditioner in a more shaded window.
Water drips from cabinet into your house.
The air conditioner is not properly leveled. The air conditioner should slope slightly downward toward the outside.Level the air conditioner to provide a downward slope toward the outside (1/2 bubble on a carpenter’s level) to ensure proper drainage. See the Installation Instructions. Reposition or shim the cabinet as necessary.
NOTE: Do NOT drill a hole in the bottom of the metal base and condensate pan.
