This is at least the 5th time my AC has broken since putting a new unit in 8 months ago. The copper pipe that should be cold is NOT cold. Same problem as every other time. I live in an apartment so it is not my duty or right to fix this on my own. They just replaced the compressor (for the 3rd time) and valves 3 days ago. It worked great for a day (like usual), but now it has stopped blowing cold air once again. I can't really say it's maintenance this time because I made them call out a private company to get the problem fixed. Like I said, it worked for a day, and now it has stopped blowing cold air. The copper pipe that should be cold is not cold. The fan on the outside unit turns on when I turn my thermostat on.
Please, I'm looking for specifics here. I'm convinced there is some sort of ELECTRICAL problem that is causing my compressor to break/leak. This is the third compressor that is has broken. I am certain there is bad wiring somewhere between my indoor fan and the unit outside, but where and what that wiring is I do not know. If you can give me specifics on what this electrical problem could possibly be, I would greatly appreciate it. I know the compressor is broken. I know there could be a leak somewhere (I just went out and it was "whistling" as if there was a leak) but they said they've pressure tested everything, and fixed every possible leak there could be. They've also replaced some fuses and the capacitor. The broken compressor is obviously NOT the primary problem. There is an underlying problem that keeps causing the compressor to fry. They even installed a new "compressor protector" when installing the new compressor. They also replaced the "outside casing," whatever that means, on my AC unit. My old AC unit had this exact same problem. I'm sorry if my tone here is a little off, but I'm extremely frustrated here and want to be able to call them out and recommend other solutions than merely replacing the compressor, which obviously isn't fixing the problem. I'm about to lose my mind
ANY feedback here is welcome. If you would like more info, let me know. Thanks everyone
Edit: I just went and looked at my unit again, and it appears there was a leak, as there is what looks like an evaporated puddle surrounding my unit. The compressor goes off and on, and when the compressor is on is when it is making that "whistling" noise. Any ideas on what this leak is and what could keep making this happen on multiple compressors?
