Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Intertherm ac/heater in a mobile home shuts off and won't come back on for quite a while. Then it runs fine for days, weeks, sometimes months. HELP


Answers :

I am assuming it's an electric unit (most are). Sounds like there is a low voltage short somewhere. This could also be a thermostat problem as well. If it were a relay switch, it would not work at all because when they go bad, thats it they dont work anymore. There isn't an inbetween. I'm leaning more towards a low voltage short. Make sure that your low voltage wiring is tight and not loose. Be careful not to work on the unit with power to it.

Good morning I have a honeywell programable thermostat and when I bought the house there was no instruction booklet. The heat is shutting off at night The furnace guy is coming sometime today and I will be charged a lot of money (which I don't) have if the problem is not with the furnace and I am sure it is the thermostat. I am sure it has something to do with the setting, I think I hit run program instead of hold the other day & I think it threw everything off. Help help help

I have installed my Honeywell RTH2310 thermostat from an older mercury one properly and it seems to work fine. However, I am unable to get it to operate at the set temperatures. I set the programming to 27.5 degrees Celsius throughout the day (7 days a week) but to 20.0 Celsius from 8pm till 8am. The thermostat continues to operate at 19.5-20.5 Celsius no matter what I try. I even tried to change it temporarily and permanently as per the user manual but to no avail. Please help, Vincent

Duo Therm dripping water in camper when shut off. My Dometic Duo Therm Ducted AC drips quite a bit of water when shut off after running for several hours on hot humid days.

Hello my air conditioner is not blowing cold air. It seems like only the fan is working. I set the temp to between 16-18 celcius and the temp that is showing is 28 celcius. Also is showing E5 on the ac small screen. It was serviced about 3 weeks ago and was working fine. This problem started about 2 days ago. Nothing has changed and nothing has been tampered with.
