    beeping airco

    Before I hassle my landlord (simply because I am not handy around the house and want to make sure I don't have him come out to further discover that yes, I am utterly useless around household matters) my air conditioning has been beeping and turning itself on and off - is this something that I can fix, or is this something that requires a visit from the maintenance people?

    thanks

    1. does it have a remote control? maybe it's malfunctioning and sending signals to the unit...pull the batteries...if that works, get the remote checked out

    2. does it have a dehumidify function? if so, it may be at the threshold that is set, and cycling on and off the maintain that humidity level (ours do this and it's incredibly annoying)...change modes (fan, cool) and see if that helps

    otherwise, i would turn it off and call for service

    disclaimer: i am not an a/c expert by any means (obviously!)

    Well it is winter. Maybe it's turning itself off because ...... it's not hot?

    Ours did that and we found out my daughter had pushed the timer button. You just need to push the timer button until it is off.
