PAC L90 LT thermostat not working, unit icing over

\015 This happens daily. We have to dry it out with a hair dryer. I know there is supposed to be a theremometer that keeps ice from forming...how do we check, or replace it?\015

Answers :

No that would be either a dirty filter/coil ir low refridgerant if it's freezing in cooling mode.

\015\012Clean/replace the filter, clean the coil and if it keeps doing it, have a technician who is EPA certified for servicing systems with refridgerant to look at it/add refridgerant.

The outside compressor and fan will not shut off. I have turned the thermostat system to Off and even to heat, but it will not stop. I went on a trip, increased the room temp to 80 on the thermostat and left. When we returned 2 1/2 days later, the coils were frozen and no air was comiing through the vents, even with the blower motor working. So I turned the unit to furnace and melted the ice on the coils, but had to pull the fuses on the outside box to get the compressor to shut off. Is there a

My carrier air conditioner is not working. We have two exterior units. One for upstairs (smaller) and one for the downstairs(larger unit). That being said we have two seperate thermostats inside our home. The upstairs unit is working fine. The downstairs thermostat shows on Auto that the unit should be kicking on based on the temp. However, the outdoor unit for downstairs is not working. So far I have checked the downstairs vents and they are blowing air although not very cool. I also tu

My unit's compressor will intermittantly stop working. The thermostat seems to keep the intake unit working but since it can't get the temperature down it never shuts off. We have been removing the batteries and letting the thermostat reset for 20 minutes. (thermostat Honeywell RTH23110B). After the reset the compressor will work again but will fault within a day. I am pretty sure that the compressor and fan are functional as if I press the contactor down it begans functioning. I also, to he

I have an intertherm rpbmb030k combo a/c and heat. Had frion put in the unit over the summer and a new digital thermostat. Unit has worked great until we needed heat. Unit works great on aux. heat but keeps switching to to defrost mode when standard heat is on. Switched out the defrost board on the unit to no avail and an a/c guy checked to ensure the new thermostat was wired correctly.

Still working on our ac inside unit Coleman EB20B outside unit Goodman CKL49-1. We had a short in the thermostat wiring that we repaired. Now the AC is working when the fan switch is on run. It doesn't run with the therm switch on the cool cycle. Have we crossed wires somewhere or is our thermostat bad? Thanks Ken Rohm

There is a switch on my 1 1/2 ton Ruud furnace/Air handler that is not working properly. The unit would not turn on, even though the thermostat was working. I took the panel off of the air handler and found that a switch had been duct taped into the on position on the unit. Apparently, the tape had shifted and the switch was no longer in proper position. when i moved the switch, two green indicator lights lit up. When i turned the unit back on, the A/C worked. Clearly, there is a problem w

I have a Tempstar model NFCP3600A1 (style # FCP3600A) ICP Heat Pump. Starting last week, the unit kept heating well over the set temperature. I swapped out the thermostat thinking it went bad, but it still continued heating and the "off" wouldn't work at the new thermostat either. Next, I checked for shorts in the thermostat wires and they seemed OK. I then replaced the TI 26FC-2 circuit board. Once the unit heated the house to the set temp, it continued running up to 75 degrees. "Off" and lowe

Carrier thermostat Hello, My Carrier electronic thermostat is connected to a heat pump.  It was set to the COOL position during a summer thunderstorm when the AC suddenly began running no matter what the SET temperature was.  It works normally when I change it to the AUTO position.  The HEAT and EHEAT positions work normally. I tried cutting power to the unit for 2 days, after which it worked normally even on COOL, but after a short power failure it resumed the problem of running the AC continuo

Our Carrier 38ckc036350 is not working - the outdoor unit was very hot to the touch and will not turn on -turned it off at the thermostat - later when the unit cooled down turned it back on via the thermostat and it would start to kick on, but then stop - no breakers were thrown. Unit will be 7 years old in the middle of July '10 and am wondering: 1. what could the problem be & 2. will any of this be under warranty?


The first thing I would check is to see the condensing coil is clean. Take a garden house and wash it thoroughly. If it is severely clogged you may need to remove the top and clean it with water pressure blowing from the inside out. This may stop the ... Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner

When the unit was not working (for about 18 hours). The house got up to about 80 degrees with the thermostat set on 70. When the HVAC tech got here (next day), he told me the compressor is shot because the thermal limit switch inside the compressor is overheating. The area where the thermal switch is getting warm, but
