THE NEXT TIME THE UNIT KICKS ON IN COMES THE COLD AIR AND CHILLS THE ROOM. \015\012 I HAVE HAD SEVERAL BRANDS OF AC. IN THE PAST BUT NEVER ONE THAT DID THIS AND THE HOT AND COLD IS NOT VERY PLEASANT. THIS UNIT IS LESS THAN ONE YEAR OLD.THE INSTALLER SAYS NOTHING IS WRONG. CAN THIS CONDITION BE CORRECTED?\015\012\015\012 BILL THACKER\015\012\015

Do you have a heat pump? If so this is normal. You are probably used to a gas furnace. There are heat pumps that do have a delay though. Look on the circuit board in the air handler. There may be a set of pins that say 0-30-60-90 yours may be at 0. Also some digital T-stats offer that function for delay off to get the extra heat or cold from the system. Find out what the model number of the air handler and call the Goodman supplier in your area to see if you have these options.
If you have a gas furnace and it's not delaying the blower there is definately something wrong.

Airflow We have a new ducted PEH-MYB reverse cycleairconditioner. We set the temperature at 20 degress for heating. Once it reaches it it then blows out cold air. We have had someone come 4 times already to fix various problems. It is not nice to sit near a duct and feel cold air. I thought the air flow was meant to stop, then start uo again when the temperature dropped just like our gas heaters? Am I wrong?

I have a york hvac system that is 5 years old. I have the thermostat set at 74 and when it turns on only the fan runs circulating the existing air in the house about 20 percent of the time. The ac works great when it is running but i'm wondering why it doesn't always come on. Just replaced the thermostat thinking that was the problem but it did not help. Sometimes after the fan runs for a half hour or so the ac will finally kick in and start blowing cold air. The lines are not frozen at a


It sounds to me like you have a delay on start timer on the compressor that possibly is starting to fail or someone may have adjusted the time band up on it. I myself would remove it and install a delay on break timer and a 5 minute setting would be ... Air Conditioners

I have an XB10 Trane AC unit that was installed when my house was built in 2003. After running it for a while, the compressor either seems to shut down and I notice no cold air as though its just the fan. Sometimes when I start it back up my thermostat says ''wait''. Or it just blows the fan, even though its set for cold. I've had the capacitor replaced, a start up capacitor bridged to it. I've changed the filter and had the coils cleaned with a brush and garden house from the inside. I'v

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

Unless we set the thermostat very high, like 80 degrees, the heater will blow cold air. When the heat does blow, it will eventually stop blowing heat and the fan will continue to blow cold air.


Check and make sure the filter is clean. This sounds like a restriction in the system. If the unit has central cooling make sure ther indoor evaporator coil is clean at the furance.The unit may be cycling the burners on and off at the high heat limi ... Air Conditioners

When I set tstat to call for a/c, compressor outside comes on. Blower on furnace does not. When I manually rotate fan limit switch on furnace wall, blower comes on, blows cold air, and then goes off when I release the fan limit switch. I have a Honeywell 83251008a low and high voltage transformer, and Honeywell (I think) limit on off switch. I also noticed the 2 wires coming from the Honeywell Gas regulator are off. They were connected at the onset of the problem. I am not sure where to re

My unit is running but not blowing cool air. I went outside and the condenor fan was not moving. Took a stick and shoved a blade and the fan started moving but the air is still not cool inside. I did notice the air coming through the unit outside after fan was blowing was cooler than my 2nd a/c unit that was working fine. I wondered if the entire unit was frozen. I turned off unit at thermostat and figured I would see what happens tomorrow

I have two Friedrich PDE15KSB-C units. When trying to turn on the heat neither will kick into the heat mode. They both blow cold air only. When they are first turned on the air blows, and there is a click sound as though the unit is trying to start the heat pump, but then nothing really happens...just the fan continues to blow cold air. Any help would be appreciated. BTW the dip sticks are all in the positions of 1234 ON, 5678 OFF - factory setting. I did try to turn 7 on for the emergency

AC unit outdoor fan motor does not come on as it should, but if I manually start the contactor relay / coil by pressing and holding the manual button on it the fan then comes on and goes off with the thermnosat; however, the air stays cool (that is blowing outside) and warm inside. The large capacitor does not look bad though.


It sounds like the contacts of the contactor are burnt/pitted. When this occurs, it can allow enough current to operate the fan motor but not enough to operate the compressor. ... Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner

Purchased a fedders a/c 18000 unit still under warranty. called the 800# they said company had filed bankruptcy and were not responsible for repairs. 350$ mistake. Fan runs too slow for unit to kick in. Fan will pick up speed some times when you turn it on, will start to blow cold air but only runs for a couple of minutes before fan stops turning.


Check the capacitor for the fan motor. You can do that with a multimeter with the capacitor test function or if the capacitor looks swollen then it is probably bad. Also, make sure the fan rotates freely by hand. Let me know if you need more help. ... Fedders 12,000/10,200 BTU Heat/Cool Room Air Conditioner - White
