Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Clicking noise at the gas valve/pilot light unit

\015 My heater when running works fine. At the end of the heating cycle I get a loud clicking sound coming from the gas manifold/regulator unit. It sounds like it is trying to relight the gas. I have to turn down the thermostat the stop it.\015

Answers :

It sounds like you might have a spark igniter on the unit that is being told to relight the burners. This is probably the tstat as this is the only control that "tells" the unit to come on. There isn't anything else internally that will cause this problem. Replace your tstat and I bet this solves your problem.

Hi , I have a Electronic pilot lighting system on my RUUD package unit. The pilot light flame keeps blowing out or is not working properly. I removed the panel to look and see what was wrong.

I have a mitsubishi air conditioning unit model MUH-12v. The fan on the machine outside has stopped and of course inside the air is not cold.

I noticed lots of clicking in coming from the gas valve. help please
