Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting Tips
Save time and money! Review the chart below first and you
may not need to call for service.
Normal operation
•You may hear a pinging noise caused by water being
picked up and thrown against the condenser on rainy
days or when the humidity is high. This design feature
helps remove moisture and improve efficiency.
•You may hear the thermostat click when the compressor
cycles on and off.
•Water will collect in the base pan during high humidity or
on rainy days. The water may overflow and drip from the
outdoor side of the unit.
•The fan may continue to operate when the compressor
has cycled off.
