House a/c first service call is for this Wednesday 7/29. Then who knows how long it will take to be fixed. It usually took Sears 6 weeks jerking us around before we got air again. Thatís why we got this one from Best Buy. Weíll see how this goes.

Pep boys had car all day today and still havenít figured out whatís wrong. Tomorrow is supposed to be 99F. Not sure how I can handle that. 11:30pm and itís 90F in here.

Peeps.... maybe you could rent a portable unit. We have one on the lower level where DD lives. The whole house is central air, but they like it 68 degrees.
I told they want 68, get your own unit. They bought a portable, and it works great. Just stick the hot exhaust hose out the window, and it works great.
I also added an auxiliary unit in the kitchen to keep it cool when we cook.
Another one is in the dining room. We can seat 14 people, and run just that unit to cool it down.

As far as your car A/C.....they should have at least know where the problem is. They should have the software to tie into the system to troubleshoot the system.

Supper tonight, was a burger pan fried, with sliced raw onion. It was so good.
Tina found this new Sara Lee bread called Artesano white. It is like 3/4 inch thick, and does not have a high bread to meat ratio. It's perfect.

We have crank out windows so can't use that unit.

The car a/c is fine. It was blowing smoke, smelled bad, rumbling & jumping, traction control off & service stabilitrack message was flashing.
Pep Boys had car for 1-1/2 days hooked it up to computer, took it for test drive, and didn't find anything wrong. Guy said maybe something was stuck somewhere and needed to burn off.
That doesn't sound right.

I think that's the kind of stuff that they say when they don't have a clue what's wrong. Hope things get better for you.

DD asked Google and turned up someone with same car, same problem multiple times. They finally found problem to be a throttle body and something else. Replaced and itís now fixed. I wonder how much that cost.

Right now itís working and I got out in the a/c for an hour. I donít know how I can survive this heat. Canít run car for days. No money to stay in hotel. Even if we could I have a damaged foot that swells badly and needs to be elevated, my back and hips are shot. I canít sleep in a flat bed. I canít get comfortable and canít move when I get up. I sleep in a recliner with back and feet propped up.

Car sounds like the MAF ( Mass Air Flow ) sensor was bad. That would account for the rumbling / smoking causing the throttle to react to adjusting the air / fuel ratio. So good that the car is repaired.

Yeah!.... no way to use the portable A/C if you can't place the hose out the opening. Bummer!!!....

They didn't fix anything. They said nothing was wrong with the car and didn't do any repairs. Which means it will keep happening.

Oh! That really stinks. So, now you drive with the Question....When is it gonna happen again? It's funny the CEL (Check Engine Light ) didn't com on.
That would store a fault code in the Engine Management System; and that would at least point to what part / system malfunctioned.
Always something huh?.... God bless and help you through your dilemma's
I am praying the house A/C cooling gets repaired today.
Hope it is just a run capacitor. That is the usual part to go on the A/C units.

The check engine light did go on. AND the "Service the Stabilitrak" message. That's why I don't understand why they said nothing was wrong. Maybe they are just incompetent.

Still waiting to hear from a/c service man.

Have you heard of Atek?

The guys from Atek came. They turned on and after 20 minutes the circuit never blew. BUT the power cord got very hot. So they say we need the cord. They will order it and try to fit us in Monday.

It is weird that the power cord would get hot.
Is the unit a through the wall unit, or a window mounted unit?
If the fan is running, blowing air, but is just not cold air...then the compressor is not running . ( That is the pump that causes the refrigeration cycle )
Is the unit cooling now?....if not, then the compressor is probably cycling on and off on the motor overload protector. Remember, if the unit is cooling, you would measure 15 to 20 degrees F cooler at the outlet, than the air entering .
After 10 minutes of cooling.

OK.... But here is the answer to a bad cord. Supposedly!
Was it Cooling / Producing cold or cool from the outlet, while the cord was hot? If it WAS Cooling, then it may very well be a defective Cord; which is causing a resistance and voltage drop to the unit.
If there was No COOL air being produced, then there is something else wrong; like a shorted Run Capacitor. A run capacitor, is like in cooking.
A low flame and trying to sear a thick piece of meat, with a low small flame, is not going to work. Not enough Heat to sear properly.
Well with a compressor motor, the capacitor supplies ~ 370 volts to the motor; so that it runs fast and strong. With a defective capacitor, the motor does not run, and or have enough boost, which causes the voltage to drop like a weak battery in a car.

We had a toaster oven that had the cord get hot. Turns out it was the outlet itself going bad, the wiring. Older home.

I'd try a heavy duty extension cord to a different outlet.

So true medtran.... It can sometimes be the outlet itself. Sometimes the terminals get burnt inside, and causes resistance. Sometimes you can smell the outlet smells burnt plastic etc...There are ways the service guy could have tested that, and i'm surprised they are guessing. Like you said, they could have ran an extension cord to another outlet. Then take another amperage reading. If normal, it would eliminate guessing.

It is a dedicated line just for the a/c. It has been replaced twice in the last 8 years. Once after Sandy hit. Then 4 years ago when Sears swore it was the line. The electrician said that the line was fine but we asked him to put new one anyway just in case.

We have a dedicated line on a circuit breaker because the house has fuses. We can’t run a/c without blowing fuses. Hence the dedicated line.

Good suggestion to move this section of a dinner thread, Sass - thanks! Since there are so many posts on the subject, I gave it a thread of its own.

I'll move Jimmy's dinner post to this week's dinner thread.

If there was No COOL air being produced, then there is something else wrong; like a shorted Run Capacitor. A run capacitor, is like in cooking.
A low flame and trying to sear a thick piece of meat, with a low small flame, is not going to work. Not enough Heat to sear properly.
Well with a compressor motor, the capacitor supplies ~ 370 volts to the motor; so that it runs fast and strong. With a defective capacitor, the motor does not run, and or have enough boost, which causes the voltage to drop like a weak battery in a car.
I agree, more chance its inside the unit rather than the cord. Capacitors are notorious for failure in more than a/c units.

Disclaimer:

Although Iím an electrical engineer i missed the class on air conditioning. But I did use the a/c at the Holiday Inn Express last night.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.
