Customer Question
I came home from...

I came home from being away for a week, and my wall unit Air Conditioner is now "running" for about 15 minutes and then going off and doing it again. No cold air is coming out, but I don't like the noise. Why is it doing this, and how can I make it stop? Thank you.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

Would it do this to get me to change the filters? I only use it in the summer with the remote, I've never used the timer or thermostat settings.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Why is it doing this? Do you need to know the model number to trouble shoot it?
