a/c 15k unit works as fan only

our SB 31rk has 2 a/c's, the living room is the 15k unit. it worked great when we first got it in summertime, and did not need it during colder months.

now as the temps are going up, we turned our a/c units back on, and the living room unit is putting out air as if we have the fan on. therm is set to auto and the temp set to x degree, and it comes on when the temp setting is reached but instead of cold air, it outputs regular air as if we have the fan on.

we set therm from auto to hi/lo for fan and that worked, then reset back to auto and only regular air comes out.

any ideas? thank you.

Hello Stormy. I would say there is a problem with the compressor control or possibly the charge in the Freon is low. This would mean a tech needs to check it out.

I had that problem with my TT when I got it new. The answer was there was no refrigerant charge in it and the unit was sealed and could not be recharged, so it was replaced under warranty. The dealer was good about it and told me to not come in until he checked to see if he had a replacement, he didn't want us to leave it there. He called back in a couple hours and had one so we made the appointment and when I got there he had 3 people on it and I was out of there in less than 2 hours.
