Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

27 year old Lennox gas furnace no heat was coming out of the vents, so I went to the basement and saw 1. One burner was clogged all along the surface and instead of the flames going up the flue, they were going to the outside of the flue where the wires are. 2. I was told by an HVAC that the flue is stopped up with soot and to just go ahead and get a new furnace. Should we get a new furnace or get this cleaned out? Thanks

I've replaced my very old (mercury) Honeywell thermostat with a new one (round, Model: YCT87K1011), but I can't get it to control the temperature. If I connect the two wires one way, the furnace comes on but won't shut off. If I reverse the wires, the furnace doesn't come on at all. I've actually tried two of these replacement thermostats with the same results. Any suggestions? John

My WeatherKing A/C heat pump is 5 years old and friday I was told it shorted out and burnt my compressor. Because of government specks today, I was told that I would have to replace the outside unit and the inside unit also because a new unit was not compatible with the furnace inside.

I have an Amana a/c unit and the compressor outside keeps stopping however the fan goes on. The a/c service guys have been to my house 3 times and the wires each time were burnt. The last time they change the capacitor and and new heavier guage wires and it lasted for about a month. When trying to turn iton now I am back to the same situation. Do you think I should I go for a compressor or change the unit ? It is a 4 ton model BBC60a2A and the outside unit model number is RCE42A2A . Thanks

Hello, my HVAC is constantly freezing, even after freon is added. I was told that I have a leak in the coils and need to chance the air handler - the outside unit is about 10 years old - air handler about 18 years old. I would like to get only the air handler for my R22 outside condensing unit. My question is if in the future can I use this same 3.5 ton air handler with a new 410 condensing unit once my outside unit needs to be replaced. In other words can a Goodman air handler be used firs

Have six year old Bryant electric furnace with heat pump, no gas. Old blower motor was going out and replaced with another generic blower motor. Wired the new just like the old and changed capacitor. There are some differences between old and new. Old says "Volts 208-230" and new says "Volts 115." Problem is blower turns on and of, over and over again. Help?!?


Hi,\015\012You totally have the wrong motor....you need to get a 208-230 motoro on there for it to work... in fact you probably already have ruined the 115volt motor...the voltage for that motor is to be 115v and you are probably running 130 vo ... Air Conditioners

Where can I find a wiring digram for the transformer it has 4 wires going into it on the hot side then to comming out on the 24 volt side.I took the old one out to replace it and cannot seam to get the wires hooked back the way they were.The unit works by pushing on the points but not from the thermostatIt is also brand new model no is PCK036-1 we only use the air side not the heat.


It sounds as if you have a multi-tap transformer. That is, the primay voltage can be 120, 208/240, 480. Most all transformers have their legends printed righ on them. Usually the 4 wires are a common and the other wires to the incoming voltage by i ... Air Conditioners

Help! I have a Kelvinator 2 KSR25F split system a/c that is not working. Every time I turned it on it trips the safety switch. I had a guy come out and look at it and he told me that the compressor is gone and that I need a new a/c as it would not be worth fixing. The unit is at least 8 years old and I have never had a problem with it apart from the capacitor going last year. My question is this, is it worth/cheaper getting the compressor fixed or buying a new one (money's too tight to mention


The compressor is the last resort. there could be another problem causing the system to trip circuit. sounds like a wire grounding inside the condensing unit control panel located at the contacts. check there first and inspect the other wires inside ... Electrolux Air Conditioners

He did the job in less than one hour and charged me $225.00. Did he over charge me? Late
