Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Zone valve does not open

\015 I have 3 zones and 2 are working\015

Answers :

You need to check and see if the zone is getting the call to open. If it is, then the motor is bad and needs to be replaced.

I have a 3 zone hot water system, and 1 zone is not working.I've tested the thermostat and it worked fine. I then adjusted the wire caps leading to the zone valve making sure the wires were not the issue.I then tought that it might be that the valve wasn't opening.While the thermostat is asking for heat, the valve it does open but the circulator does not run.I don't know what else to check

Hello Kenneth. Chances are that the thermostat that controls that zone valve needs to be replaced. Your best bet is to find that exact same thermostat, make note of the attachment of each wire by color and replace the thermostat. J. ... Fujitsu Air Conditioners

My base-board hot water heat system has 3 Taco zone valves in it. One of the valves seems to be not shutting off completly when the thermostat shuts it off, and allows the zone to heat when the furnace is calling for it to heat the hot water tank (for house hot water) My question is the problem most likely in the power head of the zone valve or will I need to change the whole valve?----Thanke you--------------- Lacy Smith


No you can replace just the head no need to drain the system. Push the head in with a slight twist and it will pop off. At this point check to see if the problem has gone away. If it has replace the head, if you still have the same problem drain the ... Air Conditioners

I have a goodman furnace model gmpn 080-4 92% 1997 Gas vave would not open after igniter came on. the voltage was 15 prior to sequence and 26 upon time for gas valve to come on. I ran a jumper from trans to gas valve and it opened. I replaced board. it functions properly now, but I still have 15 volts at gas valve when it is not calling for it to open. Is this normal? If not what could cause this?


General rule is 24 volts to operate control valve. check common at valve to white at valve or out of board. 24 in call, less than 24 when off. sometime s these things back feed or give a false reading. voltage can read say 15 volts but under a load i ... Goodman Air Conditioners

I have a Rheem gas furnace, model # RGAA-100C and need help lighting the pilot. The instructions on the metal plate tell me to set the valve to off, then to pilot, push the valve down until lit, and then to on position. I do not see the off position, there is a pinhole size opening at the pilot position, is there where you light it? There is no other opening indicating where to light the pilot.


Hi, follow what I say and it is very easy. The knob that says off, on, and pilot, is where you need to start. You don't want to turn it off now, as its been off for awhile now. Turn the knob slowly pushing down on it until you fill it go down. The kn ... Air Conditioners

I have a 2 year old Goodman GDS80703ANA furnace that has always had a problem starting. Sometimes it starts on the first attempt but other times it takes 2 or 3 attempts. This is what I see happening: The Induced Draft Blower starts and runs- the Igniter will glow for a few seconds and just as the igniter starts to stop glowing I hear the Gas Valve click and open but it is too late. On the next attempt or so, the Gas Valve will open sooner and burner will ignite. My question is: Is the Integrate

A r410a central system requires a line dryer, this devise has an arrow pointing the direction of flow, which should be at the condensing unit, does it matter how far from the unit it should be placed. when installing a new r410a system, do you open the liquid line valve to pressure test / leak check the system with nitrogen? and also to attach the vacuum pump, keeping the suction line valve closed until the lines are at -500 microns and ready to open and release the stored factory r410a gas i

I have a Fill-troll model 110 on a hot water boiler. The fill valve seems to allow too much water into the system (>30psi) unless I close the potable water supply valve. I have also observed that when I open the drain valve to release pressure on the system, the pressure drops as expected but after closing the drain valve, the pressure rises again even with the supply valve closed. I suspect that a restriction in the port to the diaphragm chamber is causing this behavior. Can such a

I recently bought and fitted a Honeywell DU144 bypass valve to my central heating system. When I started up the system I found that the valve got hot quite soon which would suggest that a certain amount of water was already passing through it even though I had all my radiators open at the time. I put my hand on the valve and could feel the water passing through the valve, even when I adjusted it from 2 Bar to 6 Bar it made no difference. I turned down the pump but it made no difference

The hot water in my flat is supplied by a communial boiler. Recently, the water in the cylinder was not heating the water as efficiently as it should; the pipe flow from the boiler is very hot, the cylinder is tepid and so it the pipe returning to the boiler. I called out a plumber who thinks the problem is with the return valve being stuck. If the return valve is set to open how and why would being stuck stop the water passing throught?

Just installed new Goodman 95% updraft furnace with 3" supply and vent lines going out through wall. Gas valve won't open. Circulation blower runs in manual on, A/C system runs fine. I have used an ohmmeter and voltmeter to do checks. The entire series of safety switches are closed. When the small blower is running, both pressure switches close. The igniter comes on but there is no voltage to the gas valve. Just after the igniter goes off, I hear a relay click, the circulation blower seems


Make sure you have bled your gas lines. If any air is in the lines, it will cause the unit to do exactly what yours is doing. The relay "click" you hear is the gas valve opening, but if there is no gas, it will not ignite. This is common for a new in ... Goodman Air Conditioners
