So our landlord already had a technician out. We where having problems before with the condensing fan kicking off and the AC blowing hot and this was about a month or two ago.
The technician advised we had blown capacitor and the fan blade was on backwards (drawing air in from the top and blowing through the bottom of the unit instead of cycling air from the bottom out the top). He checked the refrigerant levels and he said all was well and the output tempts where 55f on a 78 degree day (humid as well).
We are now having issues again with the unit. We frequently change filters and even removed the plenum and cleaned the evaporator (it was not frozen as some indicated means you are low on refrigerant)the evaporator is actually very clean. The airflow out of the vents are as expected and its not warm air coming out but it's not cold. Its 81F out with 85% humidity and the house is looming at a degree colder then that(80F). Something is wrong here, our fan is blowing lukewarm air on the outside unit but I feel its hardly hotter then the outside. The compressor is circulating because the I can physically hear the refrigerant moving through the copper lines. The big line on the outside is cool to the touch and sweating but not like an ice cube.
I know im probably going to have to get a technician out here but can anyone think of anything to try before hand? We have thoroughly cleaned the outside unit its very shiny lol.
I have great appreciation for you all and what you do, home comfort is something you take for granted until these things happen.
