Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Converting a ceiling control unit to a thermostat on the wall.

\015 I added another ac unit to the top of my trailer. The original unit has a thermostat on the wall and ducts in the ceiling panels. I would like to put ducts on the second unit and change it to a thermostat on the wall also. Can I convert the second unit from the ceiling knobs to a thermostat on the wall?\015

Answers :

Unless the new unit is 24 volt thermostat convertible inside the unit, you will have to use a line voltage(120v) wall thermostat.

I have a Carrier split unit model 38AN009100 that I am using to refrigerate my wine cellar.I know that this unit is not made for this purpose. Is it possible to convert it so I can control my cellar at around 12 degrees C? I was wondering if I could put a wall thermostat in the cellar instead of the actual thermistor controlling the temperature. Thank you for your prompt reply


Well most unite will but out 54 degrees but as far room temp reaching that is highly unlikely. the unite would probably turn into a big hunk of ice and stop! this is more of Refrigeration unite which operate at lower temp. you can buy small ones fair ... Air Conditioners

Can Carrier split system 38G250H be converted to be controlled from a room thermostat rather than the return air thermistor. I have a very high ceiling ,2m above the indoor unit,and the stratification is a problem. I have already the ''Butcher'' ceiling fan installed and it is still cold at the floor level, and 27deg.C at the unit level.(2.4 m)


Yes it can be done as long as the thermostat has the capability of acting as a on-off switch.It could be bimetallic type which till today are the best way of tep control since the inherent qualities of the bimetallic strip is that any temp change co ... Air Conditioners

THE REMOTE CONTROL UNIT FOR A DUCTLESS SPLIT A/C WALL UNIT HAS LOST ITS DISPLAY. AMONG OTHER THINGS, THERE IS NO THERMOSTAT TEMERATURE DISPLAYED, RESULTING IN NIOT KNOWING WHAT THE ROOM TEMPERATURE IS SET AT. THE BATTERIES ARE GOOD AND THE REMOTE TURNS THE WALL UNIT ON, BUT NOTHING IS DISPLAYED ON THE LCD DISPLAY (NOT EVEN THE SEPARATING LINES BETWEEN MODES). WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO GET THE LCD DISPLAY WORKING PROPERLY AGAIN? THANKS, RICK DiMARZIO

Our Goodman inside unit has an accumulation of ice on the Larger of the two lines from the outside unit. A thermometer in the grill in the ceiling indicates that the temp at the grill is 76.4 F even with the thermostat set at 73 F. The red light on the Control in the inside unit is illuminated and the outside unit is on. When placing your hand on the freon lines near the air handler, the freon seems to be pulsing. By that I mean that you can feel the pulsing thru the insulation of the large


It could be that the unit is to small and the compressor does not cycle on and off Try turning it off for a 1/2 hour then turn it on again and then check the air temp of the air coming out. If that does not work it might be low on freon. ... Air Conditioners

I have a 98 Sunnybrook w/Dometic Furnace-A/C thermostat control. Just the other day, the furnace would keep running and it got very hot in the trailer until I could shut it off. The thermostat was set kind of low, but we needed to keep a little heat on in case we got a freeze. Do I need to replace the control unit which is electronic to correct the problem? I am assuming the thermostat went bad, but am also assuming it is a part of the control unit?! Thanks for your help. Dave

I have two Dometic roof top units both have sepreated controlls. The smaller bedroom unite will not shout off. When turned to off, when the thermostate is lowered, or when the controll is switched to furnace. Still the unite will keep running. The fan can be low or high but the unite will not shout off unless the breaker is opened. I thought the problem may be the wall mounted controll so I switched the one from the front (knowened to be good) to the back bedroom. No change. The bedroom controll

Batteries on the control unit thing ran out, so I took the whole thing off the wall (not realising that the batteries can be replaced by pressing a button at the back of the unit to reveal the battery compartmnt), replacd the batteries and it looks like it works (display on, showing temperature etc), put the unit back on the wall and ... nothing, zip, no response.

Bought a new dometic a/c and it won't run. voltage is present in the control box until the upper unit is plugged in/connected, to the control box/thermostat. the voltage to the upper unit then disappears like it's shorted or grounded. prior to plugging in the upper or main unit there was 110v a/c present on the lo and hi fan terminals as well as the output to the female plug for the roof unit. when plugged in the 110v is no longer present on any terminal of the control box or thermostat. any ide

Carrier Comfort Zone II Smart Control in one zone frequently cycles unit (every 20-30 minutes) even when temperature in the room does not change significantly and the indicated thermostat temperature does not change at all (stays on 77 for example). Shouldn't the thermostat temperature change at least a degree or two in order for it to turn the unit on or off?? Is there a way to adjust the sensitivity of these controls?

I have a Mitsubishi MS-09D wall mounted air conditioner. The cooling function does not seem to be cooling. The fan is running but the it seems to be recirculating the air only. The defrost light is red on the wall unit. I don't recall this light ever being on before. Could a button or combination of buttons on the remote unit have been bumped somehow? Could you please tell me how to reset the remote control or wall unit to have the cooling operation to come on again? The air ducts are clean,

I have a DuoTherm BriskAIr 13.5K BTU. The Dometic thermostat also controls my HydroFlame 8531-IV furnace. This morning, the furnace would not come on. I checked the wiring and there is no voltage at the thermostat blue wire on the furnace. If I jump 12 volts to the thermostat blue wire, the furnace works normally. Replaced thermostat; no change. I hear something clicking in the air conditioner unit when I switch the thermostat to furnace mode. I assume the A/C has a relay to control the thermost

My air conditioner won't stop running. The fan won't stop on the upstairs unit unless we remove the thermostat from the wall. The condenser runs constantly. It does cool when the thermostat is plugged in. I took at look at the unit and the fan came on, even when I had removed the thermostat. I don't think I have a thermostat issue.


Does the compressor also run constantly? If it does, the problem with the outside unit may be a stuck contactor. You can remove the cover where the power goes into the outside unit and the contactor should be located near there. If it is stuck, turn ... Air Conditioners
