Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Honeywell thermostat T8400c started flashing, heat/cool was off. Display flashes all icons (heat and cooling icons, temperatures, everything) and on the oppposite flash, the setpoint is displayed. The fan comes on when turned to ''ON'' but heat or cool does not when in ''auto''. The compressor can be turned on outside at the switch, but appears to have no freon. Heating & cooling worked within 2 weeks prior to this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Answers :

Based on the simplicity of this particular t-stat, I really think that it is bad and needs to be replaced. They do not make this particular model anymore. I have included a link to the operators manual for the stat. Good luck!

I have 2 heil heat punps (manufactured 1989), a 3T for the lower level and a 2.5T for the upper level. The 3T unit functions normal. The upper unit functions normal if each spring, when switching from heat to cooling, the technician adds 4 pounds of freon to cool properly. In the fall the tech must draw out 4 pounds of freon for this unit to heat properly. The outside and attic units are a matched set and the expansion value in the attic unit has been replaced.

Hi guys, I try to solve this problem i have with my AC unit American Standard YCC048F. Short: The heating and cooling are ok, the only problem is the fan doesn't turn off even if heat or cool turns off. Some times even if i put the thermostat is on off the fan starts running. I try to find a relay for the fan but i don't know what can be the problem. Please help, for now i am switching on/off the unit to have it run. Thank you. Costi

Hi, I have a goldStar GA 1866VHR split Airconditioner, (5050w cooling and 5040w heating capacity). Today I noticed that compressor/condenser unit was still running after I turned off the aircond: from the remote control. The fan unit turned off as normal. I had to turn off the isolation switch to turn off the compressor/condenser unit. After about 2-3 hrs I turned on the isolation switch and the compressor/condenser unit came "on" stright away without the fan unit. Went inside and turned on fro

My intertherm heat pump has freon but will not heat is it posible that the reversing valve is stuck in the middle and will not let it heat if so where can i get a new one. My heat pump cools good and when I switch to heat the lines to the coil inside are very hot but coil is not. Is my coil stopped up and if it is how is it cooling?


You can't replace a reversing valve (must remove ALL refrigerant first), unless you are EPA certified and have the equipment to recover the refrigerant and to braze the old valve out and the new one in. That said, it's probably an electrical problem ... Air Conditioners

I have a Lennox pulse 21 furnace. It will not turn on when I turn it to cool or heat. I checked the main computer module and the LED light is off. I had reset the furnace by using the switch next to the furnace, and this will not turn on the light. Is there anything else I need to check before I call a service tech to look at the main module? The switch to turn on and off the furnace with the removal of the bottom door may be bad. Is there anyway to check this?


The switch you are talking about can be checked. Turn power off to unit. Disconnect wires on both terminals of this door switch. Next use a meter that will show Ohms or just connectivity to see if switch is closed when pressed all the way in. You cou ... Air Conditioners

My Towerchron 2000 timer appears to be faulty. It is about 20 years old but has always worked well. The problem is - the central heating will often not come on without the hot water. In the evening when the hot water switches off, the heating turns off. I have to turn the water on again to keep the central heating on. The room thermostat is high enough (18-20C). I suspect the timer is faulty and needs replacing.

Indoor fan motor continue to run even if the thermostat is in auto position with the cool and heat switch in the off position. The furnance don't have a fan on and off switch in the furnance like most. The only way to turn the fan motor off is to turn off thr high power switch. I change indoor fan relay but the problem still exist.


Try this, disconnect the fanwire (green) on the furnace, if it shuts off then the hot wire from the thermostat is touching the green wire or bad thermostat. Thank-you-very-much! ... Intertherm Air Conditioners

Our Furnace doesnt seem to be working correct. We an: Air Pro BGM075128 and is Natural Gas. It will turn on when we turn up the thermostat.. but we never get any heat through the vents. There is a switch on the side that is "on" and one that is "fan". If we turn on the "fan" only cold air gets blown through. It looks like this is for cool air. So, if we leave the fan off and the "on" swith on, we get the furnace firing up, but no heat ever comes through the vents. I tested out the thermo

I've installed a Hunter 44550 thermostat. When I programmed it to cool and turned it on, the heat came on. I then switched the two wires I had running between the RH and RC switch and now nothing comes on: not the heat, not the fan, not cold. I know I just have the wires mixed up, but am not sure which ones to switch. I have a 5 wire setup.

I have an electric furnace and heat pump that will at times blow only cold air during the heating season. I have checked the filter and don't believe that to be a problem. I usually have the temperature set to 74 degrees. When the outdoor temp. is extremely cold the axillary heat indicator will be on and still no heat. I can turn the heat pump off by switching to emergency heat and will get some heat from that but not as warm as I think it should be and even that will at times only blow cool

Reversing valve Model: PHJ030-1A Seral: 9705062008 The reversing valve is not reversing to heat. I found a small hole at the condenser coil, with oil residue around the "U" shape joint. When the heat stop, the condenser froze up. I think the a/c part will continue to cool with low pressure. Could low freon keep the reversing valve from switching. Reversing valve need more pressure to work. I check coil, the ohms is 17.6, and I do have 24 volts going to the coil, but I did not check it in cool fo

Reset button for Ruud Achiever 14 heat pump/AC compressor? My Ac/heat thermostat was blowing fan on and would not turn off. I switched it off at the circuit box, and bought a new thermostat RTH221, wired it and it would not blow cool air when on cool nor warm air when on heat. Called the 800 number for Honeywell and tech said I had wired it correctly, to check outside and see if the compressor was running. It was not.
