Problem: A/C Cuts Off Unexpectedly

• Turn off the A/C unit and look for debris in the evaporator coil.
• Make sure that there is nothing blocking the fan.
• Check the air filter; if dirty or clogged, clear out debris and clean or change filter.

Problem: Water Damage

• Check the drain hose or pipe to see if there is a blockage or a kink.
• If the hose or pipe is blocked or kinked, remove debris and clear the line.
• Check the drain for holes.

Problem A/C Unit Won’t Turn On

• Check your home’s electrical breaker and make sure it’s still on.
• Check the compressor to verify that it’s still on.
• Check the panel next to the compressor to see if it has shut down; it may need to be reset.

Problem: Air Conditioner Unit is Not Blowing Cool Air

• Turn the A/C unit off and check the unit condenser coil; it should be clean for optimum efficiency.
• Check for debris that may be clogging the feed line and affecting the system.
• Check the outside unit condenser cover for debris and remove it on and around the unit.

Problem: Central Air Unit Is Leaking

• Inspect condensate pump for leaks in the hose line.
• Check that the condensate pump is secure in the outlet.
• Check the filter to see if it is dirty and clean it if needed.
