Answers :

It could be plugged up, have you checked the drain assembly? You may have a float switch like deviced that is sensing the unit is not draining correctly. If the unit is draining but is still doing it, more than likely the sensor is bad.

Electrical Schematic?? Hi, Here is our problem:  We have this unit installed in our desert vacation home in the wine "cellar" room, at times when we are not here, the electricity has gone out (even just for a second) and this unit shuts down and doesn't come back on until we come here and physically turn it on again. We are looking to bypass this so we don't have wine ruined while we are away.  How can we get this unit to come back on by itself?   Another problem is: this unit is installed in su

I have a Coleman Central Air/Heat System. This year, the outside compressor (or whatever it is called) is shutting off within minutes of the air conditioner coming on. This is resulting in the home never cooling down. I can reset the system by shutting the air off inside the home for a few minutes and the outside compressor comes back on, but again, only for a minute or two, and the unit only blows what seems to be room temperature air.

American standard thru-wall heater air conditioner (PTEC1501GAA) will not heat. When wall mounted thermostat is turned up for heat, the fan turns on but no heat comes out. I opened it up and checked the fuse which was okay. I suspect the unit is of mid-1960s vintage. I tried to locate a manual on the American Standard website but it was no help and mostly focuses on plumbing products. Ron

I have a Comfort-Aire Model RAH-123A Room Air Conditioner and Heat Pump. When depressing the low or high heat control button, the unit hums like it wants to start but shuts off in about 3-5 seconds. My suspicion is that the compressor is trying to start but a thermal cutout shuts it down when it does not start. The unit was installed as part of a sun room addition and the remodeler is no longer in business. If I cannot solve this problem through the internet, I need a local contact fro servic

Need help for Toyostove vented heater- Laser 56MH heater comes on when thermostat sensor calls for heat. It brings room up to correct set temperature and begins normal shut down. But here is the problem...the circulation fan stops and I think the blower moter stops? But fire remains in the burner chamber and a moter is quitely running...I think it is the exhaust? The only way it will completely shut down is when I turn back the temperature selection 10 degrees. It immediatly shuts down. Then


Hi, there is a problem going on here, and its not the unit it self, but in the control circuit. From what you have said as to how and what is taking place is, the control thermostat works on a call for heat and cycles down when the desired temperatur ... Air Conditioners

American Standard Gas furnace acting weird


I am concerned of the readings you have given. 120 volts to ground, but 168 volts to neutral? And having 10 amps of current at the "ventor", but only 1 amp for the whole furnace worries me, because power for the "ventor" comes through the furnace. ... Air Conditioners

The fan comes on, the burner ignites and then goes out withing 3-5 seconds. Fan continures to run another 30-60 seconds then it too shuts off. Also want to know if this furnace has a filter. We could not find one and I live in my trailer in an area that is very dusty.

My indoor fan comes on but the compressor does not. I checked voltage, fuses and wiring and everything was ok. When I depressed the contact (single pole) the compressor would run and make cold air. When I did it a second time it held in and ran so we cooled the house down. Thinking the contact was bad I got a new one but it wouldn't come on but would run if I held it in and would shut off if I let off of it.. It has control voltage to the coil on the contact. The contact just wont kick in or sta

My heater is not working reliably. With the setpoint above the room temp, it may come on right away, or not for 12 hours. Pilot/igniter is ok, and will sometimes start the furnace heat going, then shuts off. New digital Honeywell thermostat, worked fine until 3 weeks ago. Thermostat says Heat when it's trying to turn on the furnace, but often nothing. Sometimes when it's starting up a loud buzzing sound comes from the furnace, perhaps a relay oscillating.

I have a LP gas log heater, the thermostat is in the living room and I would like to shut this room off this winter. Is it possible to add a second thermostat elsewhere in the house so this can be done?


Yes. If the thermostat is connected with electrical wires you can buy some wire and move the thermostat or add a second thermostat. Just be aware that dual thermostats can cause people to forget that they have to shut both of them off to stop the h ... Air Conditioners

Compressor problem? My outdoor unit comes on with the fan blowing just fine. Then I hear a buzzing sound for about 2-3 seconds which I believe is the compressor trying to come on. (Incidentally, a couple of lights inside the house seem to dim at the same time that the buzzing sound occurs.) The buzzing sound reoccurs every couple minutes while the outdoor unit fan and the indoor blower both continue to run. I have shut down both the outdoor and indoor units for a couple hours and tried restarti
