Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Heating Element on my A/C not getting hot

\015 I just replaced a transformer and thermostat on my A/C unit. I forgot to turn the power off and while I was looking at the heating element I saw and heard a spark. Now the heating element isn't getting hot. The unit works fine in ''cool'' , but blows luke warm air in ''heat''. Does that mean the element is out or would either the limit switches, fusible links, or the heat sequencer prevent damage to the element first? How do I test these to know what is out?\015

Answers :

It definitly did not open the element the 24vac isn't enough. I would go back over the wiring.When your t- stat calls for heat you want it to energize both sequencers. the easist way to assure this is to connect the whiet and purple two gether at the a/h.

My Megaflow Immersion Heater D70 suddenly stopped heating the water. I only use it for hot water, not heating. The fuse was fine but I switched on and off just in case with no result. It is getting on a bit at 6 years but wonder if there is anything I can do before I call in the plumbers. Also, if it is worthwhile getting parts for this tank or replace it.Live in hard water area so maybe element is gone. Can water softener be attached to the inflow of the tank to descale softening the water now


For this problem , if you have a multimeter and a modicum of knowledge you can (carefully!) check for voltage at the element yourself. multimeter may show the timer was at fault so tat u can replace it and make it run!!\015\012 ... Air Conditioners

I have a Atwwood modelGC6 9A-10E hot water heater. I can not get the electric part to heat... My guess is the element is burned out? How difficult is it to replace the element?


Yes, more than likely it is the heating element. Which should not be that difficult to replace, as it's just like a regular electric water heating element for residential water heaters, rather than ones made for the Motor Home or Travel Trailer indus ... Air Conditioners

I have a LG LWHD1800HR window unit ac/heater 220V. The heating element is only getting warm (not hot.) The continuity of the element tests good from the two terminals. I show 115V coming from both wires. The plug and power cord test good. Any suggestions?

I put a 3 ton RUDD 15 seer heat pump in my own home,R-410 A. Here is what it is doing. When I get the pressures near where the chart says,such as 150 357 on a 94 degree day I lose all my heat on the hot gas line and my split goes way down. As I remove freon and the pressures go down the hot gas line begins to get hot but then I get alot of bubbles in the sight glass. This thing is really driving me nuts do you have any advice for me. Also when I get the house down to say 73 degrees and it is 85

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.

Have an oil fired boiler for baseboard heat and it also has a tankless heater for domestic hot water. No heat being called for only getting hot water for use. Boiler goes to 210 degrees before it knocks off. It seem to push hot water through baseboard eventhough not calling for it. The controls are set to high limit 160 degrees


These boilers usually have multiple controls. The control that would take it out of the circuit at 210 degrees is a safety. \015\012\015\012You should definitely have a professional take a look at this unit before you continue using it. ... Air Conditioners

Hi, I have a ferroli falcon II combi boiler and have a problem with the hot water and heating. The hot water keeps turning cold for a few seconds and the boiler keeps firing up and clicking off all the time you have the hot water tap open.

Hi, I have a Halstead combi boiler. The Central Heating works OK, but we are not getting any hot water. It cycles between luke warm for a bit and then goes cold. Not sure if it's related but occasionally the heating also stops and this is due to the water pressure having dropped. Turning the pressure back up to 1.5 bar starts the central heating again, but does still not give us any hot water.

Installed a grant combi vortex 26e in January. Went back today to drain down and replace some radiator valves with leaking glands etc. When I filled and vented system, hot water fine, pump runs etc. Central heating will not fire although pump running. Pipework around boiler and by-pass very hot. No overheat. pump is free of air and spinning. I think in total I managed to get the burner to fire for on minute on central heating today. Confused. Could the by-pass be stealing all the heat? Could it

My heat from my Coleman furnace in my mobile home has gone from hot air to only warm air. I am assuming the elements are bad. The mobile home is a 1987 model. Where are the heating elements located and how do you replace them?

I turn the thermostat down at night. When I get up in the morning I turn it back up. The heat kicks on for a minute or two then the unit starts blowing colder air. If I turn the thermostat to the OFF position, wait until I hear all blowers stop, then turn it back to the ON position, it will start blowing HOT air again. Some times I have to perform this cycle 3 times to get it to keep blowing hot air. Any ideas as to what is shutting the furnace off? Thanks, Wayne

I have just replaced a Sunvic SP 100 Controller, with a Siemens RWB29 Controller, and find it is not working properly. It has been wired in correctly, according to the 'Change Over Wiring Diagram' supplied with the new Unit. However, when I turn either Hot Water, or Central Heating, on to 'Manual Overide', it comes on only for about 40 seconds, and then the Gas Fire goes out! Consequently, the Water or Heating NEVER GETS HOT! The Wiring has been checked by a qualified Electrician. W
