#1 Thermostat Problems/Thermostat Miscommunication

A common problem with Bryant air conditioners is with the temperature control thermostat. The settings on the temperature control board may not match the air temperature in the room, and this may be due to a miscommunication between the air conditioning unit and the thermostat, or the remote control may be running out of power.

In this case, check your control panel for any miscommunication issues. You can restart your air conditioning units by shutting the HVAC system down, then waiting for 5 minutes before powering it on again. If this does not fix the issue, replace the batteries of the remote control or control panel. If all else fails, contact us at Luce Aircon for a complete diagnosis and repair.

#2 Condenser Coils are Not Working Properly

Condenser coils are what hold the refrigerant as it condenses from a gas to a liquid solution. The coils may freeze up and malfunction, or leak refrigerant out of the air conditioning system. In this case, you will need to have our professional technicians inspect and repair your unit. Condenser coils may be replaced, but replacement costs are relatively high.

#3 Air Conditioner is Emitting Smells

Smells coming from the air conditioner is a sign of an underlying problem with your Bryant air conditioner. Depending on the smell, odor from your AC unit may be a cause for immediate concern. A musty odor would indicate mold growth, while a skunk-like odor means there is natural gas that is escaping through your HVAC system.

If you notice a musty or foot-like smell, chances are you simply need to clean your air filter and drain pan. However, if you notice the smell of chloroform, sulfur, ammonia, smoke, or burning plastic, then shut your unit down immediately and contact a licensed technician to check out your unit.

#4 Dirty Air Conditioner

A dirty air conditioner would have many problems with its parts and components, ranging from mold buildup, to overloading of the air conditioning system. Cleaning your AC unit at home is relatively simple: wash the air filter with soap and water, vacuum up the coils, and wipe down the exterior of your indoor unit.

Creating a cleaning routine will prevent a dirty air conditioner, and provide you with cleaner, cold air that won't strain your air conditioning system. A clean AC unit will ease up on the circuit breaker as well, and will allow air to flow properly around your room.

How to Reset Your Bryant Air Conditioner

Reset Point: Circuit Breaker

To reset your Bryant air conditioner, turn off the unit, but leave the power plug connected to the wall socket. Make your way to the circuit breaker, and locate the circuit connected to your Bryant air conditioner. Flip the circuit breaker, wait 5 minutes, then flip the switch back to its original position to reset your unit.

Bryant Air Conditioner Solutions and Troubleshooting Guide

#1 Regular Maintenance and Cleaning

Regular maintenance and cleaning of your Bryant air conditioner may fix most aircon issues, especially those caused by dirty air filters and evaporator coils. Keep a schedule to clean your entire unit, as well as a schedule of battery changes for the main control board. Have your unit professionally checked at least twice a year for optimal maintenance and upkeep.

#2 Fix Any Issue Immediately

Contact us at Luce Aircon for cleaning, diagnostics, and repairs. We'll fix any issue you have with your Bryant air conditioners before they damage your unit, and lead to bigger problems later on.

#3 Avoid Overloading the Circuit Breaker Box

As with any electrical device, avoid overloading the circuit breaker where your air conditioner is connected to. Not only will this prevent your fuse box from overloading, it will prevent damage to your Bryant air conditioner and Bryant furnace. Your AC unit will most likely have an overload protector to prevent damages, but this fail-safe may also malfunction over time.
