Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I have a 3 ton Coleman heat and air pump and when I turn the air condition on the heat strip comes on at the same time


Answers :

If you are calling for heat and the thermostat is set for 2 degrees higher than room temp, the heat pump and strips come on.
\015\012When the room temp and stat temp are less than 2 degrees the strips turn off.
\015\012That is, unless the installer wired the t-stat for the strips to stay on.
\015\012If they are coming on in the air/cool mode then you have a bad heat relay or a t-stat wire shorted.

Have Coleman-Evcon heat pump system. Model DRHS0421CB. Condensing unit has intermittent no run condition. I replaced the contactor, as it was a few years old. I eliminated the thermostat from the equation by twisting together the RYO wires at the thermostat sub panel. This makes the air handler run and MOST of the time also makes the condensing unit come on as well. When it does run together, it cools great. Suction and discharge pressures are normal. The float switch is ok and no water prese

The Thermonstat show everything but the right thing so it will come on. Like heat strip and defrost and phases. My roof air does not come equipped with heat strip. I have a times turned everything off and in time the thermonstat will reset itself and work. Getting a false reading. Could it be that the thermonstat is bad or what?

I recently had a new outdoor unit installed on my central heat and air conditioning sytem. I have had the installer out 3 times and the system still does not operate correctly. Sometimes when it cycles (every other time or every third time) the unit does not blow cold air. Sometimes the unit comes on not blowing cold air and the compressor fan is running but not the compressor. Sometimes after 15 minutes of this the compressor will come on. What is the problem.


It sounds like the compressor needs starting components installed on it. All a/c units have a run capacitor for the compressor and another one for the condenser fan motor. These motors use these capacitors all the time when the motor is running. H ... Air Conditioners

I have a Toshiba Heat pump. 220-240V 50HZ 40 watts. I have lost the manual and do not know how to get it to give me hot air. I put the temp at 22deg but seem to just get cold air blowing in on me all the time. Surely when it is 5deg outside I should be able to get hot air coming form the stupid machine. However said heat pumps were good obviously hasn't got one of these!!!

Every time my heat pump turns on, the blue auxilliary light comes on, and it only blows icy air. I do not want to use that much power, so I turn it back down a few degrees. Now, it is 50 degrees in the house. Tonight it will be around 16 degrees outside. How can I get my heat pump to produce warm air?

I have a Jantrol heat pump & A/C. It is approximately 10 years old. For the last 3 summers the compressor unit will freeze when the air handler fans fails to come on.

Air Conditioning I have a ruud system with the air conditioner outside and the air handler upstairs in the attic. My systems appears to be running, and I can feel cold air at the vents, but I can barely feel it. Like there is no flow. The fan outside is running and the unit in the attic is running.

Amana heat pump emergency heat comes on but blower will not start. The call for heat comes in and the heating element(s) glow red for a few seconds and then there is a "click" and the heating strips de-energize. The blower fan motor doesn't come on, however the squirrel cage fan spins freely. The heat pump stopped working several years ago, but I just used the emergency heat option for heating solution. The squirrel cage fan motor was replaced about 3-4 years ago.

The downstairs ac unit has a pump that pumps the condensation frm the evaporator ( i assume) through a long tube outside. The AC would not kick on and the pump continuously ran. I was told to clear the line on the pump because the ac wont come on if the pump isnt working right. That was the case and I took an air compressor and blew out the line. I poured water in the pump to make sure it was working and did this three times and each time the water did pump outside. But the ac still wont come

I have an electric furnace and heat pump that will at times blow only cold air during the heating season. I have checked the filter and don't believe that to be a problem. I usually have the temperature set to 74 degrees. When the outdoor temp. is extremely cold the axillary heat indicator will be on and still no heat.
