re: Clarksville Tennessee Area - GeneralLeeAwesome
Well I was stationed there from 2007 to 2018 when I retired. I actually just sold my house there. I was renting it out for the past few years. I love the area, if you’re an outdoorsman type there is so much to do. The bars close at 0200 now...

When the water backs up in the coil drain pan i...

re: Air conditioning issue - GeneralLeeAwesome
I agree but it depends on how it was wired in. Is it wired in series with the condenser, is the tstat a 5 wire, does he have batteries in it. I wire mine to kill the condenser because I want refrigerant to stop flowing and creating condensate ...

re: Air conditioning issue - GeneralLeeAwesome
I like being in the field. My goal is to run solo for myself. I still think the simplest fix on this is a partially clogged drain line and the float switch going on and off. Especially if it’s a single stage lower efficiency unit and he didn’t have any spring maintenance done on it. I see it eve...

re: Air conditioning issue - GeneralLeeAwesome
Go into your attic and see if you have a float switch coming off the Evaporator Coil. Pull it out and check the drain line. It could be mostly clogged with a slow drain backing up on that float which will kill the condenser and the second the float drops back down it’ll kick on. Without a delay prog...
