The heat pump is not working properly. i think the problem is in the switch mechanism. when the heat is on and the thermostat is turned up it blows cold air. sometimes the compressor turns on and off. if you turn the other switch to the off position, then turn the thermostat up then turn it back to heat. it will blow hot air. if you then turn the thermostat down, wait till it turns off, then turn it back up, it will blow room temp air and sometimes the compressor will turn on.
Hi,\012The problem may be the switch, but it sounds more likely that the contactor in the outdoor unit is bad and is not making all of the time...then the compressor will not always run...\012To figure it out you will need to catch it at ... Air Conditioners
The bard geothermal (open loop) furnace will not produce heat. I will turn on the heat and the furnace will begin to turn on. The water will start to flow and then the furnace turns off. A green light on the top of the bard thermostat will then turn on. The fan unit will not turn on when the fan control is turned to ON not auto. Help.

My panasonic cs-e12hkr airconditioner will only run for approx. 20 mins then always turns off and will not turn back on no matter how hot the room gets. I have the timer turned to off, but it still turns off after a short while every time. I checked for a fault code and got F95, with 18 beeps from the unit. It seems that the timer is set to run for 20 mins and will not alter or turn off. The timer shows 8.00 as a start time and no end time, even when turned to off.

My unit is 4 years old. I always turn it off when I leave for work in the am and turn it back on when I get home in the pm. Last night I turned it on at 7:30pm. When I went to the front of the house about 45 minutes later, I noticed the unit outside was trying to turn on but would immediately turn off. I checked the breakers in the garage, turned them off and back on but still had the same problem. The fan inside the house is running but unit outside will not kick on. I looked for a magic

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

We have a new house and it came with central air. I have turned on the air and turned on the circuits and noticed that the outside fan on the outdoor unit was spinning round (good) now, I checked and the fan is not turning. Turned the unit on and off, still no turning and checkecd the circuit breakers...Any help please. Model is Aire_Flo Outdoor unit AFAIR12B30-A P I hear a low hum to the unit outside. I see trouble here.
First check to be sure the circuit breaker for the outside unit is not tripped. Turn the two pole breaker all the way off all the way off and then back on. If the outside unit still does not run you may have fuses in a disconnect box by the outside ... Air Conditioners

My fedders aircon compressor does not turn on again whenever its thermostat turns it off. what i had to do is unplugged the power cord and turn it on again to work. i already replaced the capacitor. what i observed is that the big normally open rely does not switch on. maybe a board problem? if i turn it off and turn it on again, only the fan rotates and not the compressor. i had to unplug the power and put it back again for the compressor to run again.
You have a time delay build in on the pc board of 3 minutes. If it takes longer than 3 minutes check your compressor overload protector, Maybe the compressor is overheating, check your coils for proper air flow. ultimately if the compressor checks ok ... Fedders A6X05F2D Air Conditioner
I have an old samsung airconditioner (Arc-102) and when I turn it on, it turns itself off at random times. Sometimes it stays on for 2 mins and others times 30mins. When it turns off the timer light flashes. I have turned off the timer settings using the remote and it still turns itself off randomly. We have 2 of these aircons. The other works fine, and when I use its remote I still have the same problem.

Dometic roof top AC unit compressor turns on even if T-stat is off. Only way to get the compressor from turning on is to turn the breaker off. Unhooked T-stat wires to see if issue was there but the compressor still kicks on when I turn the breaker back on. If I leave the auto t-stat on, the compressor will turn on for a bit with a loud hum until after a couple minutes or more it shuts off with a loud thud that will shake the RV. Then after a while it will do it again. Only let it happen twice
Sounds like you may have a couple of problems there. First, have you checked incoming voltage to make sure you are getting 100-120 VAC at the AC control board in ceiling? If that's ok, try removing/disconnecting Ac compressor wire at ceiling control ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

I have a Fedders AZEY18F7B a/c unit. I want it to turn on at 7pm and off at 7am everyday automatically. The timer setup is stupid. It says something like, how many hours from now do you wnat it to turn on, and how many hours from now do you want it to turn off. It doesn't not turn on when I tell it to. And if it did do what I programmed it to do, the instructions don't even say if it will repeat everyday. How can I get this stupid timer to actually turn on my a/c at 7pm and off a

I have a honeywell PA404A pressure control switch on my home gas steam heating system. I'm having a problem with the switch turning off the system. It will only come back on if I turn the top screw all the way out, then back down to approx 5psi. At this point the heat will turn on but when the thermostat shuts down the system it will not turn back on when calling for heat unless I adjust the screw again. Also, the switch will only turn on the system when set at 5 on the dial on the inside. Any i
This may be caused by accumulation of sludge in the steam trap (the looped tube that connects the pressuretrol unit to the boiler). the sludge restricts the pressure from reaching the diaphragm in the pressuretrol unit. So it gets a false reading. ... Air Conditioners

When we turn the heater on you hear something turn on but sometime it doesn't blow any air out. If we turn it off and on a few time we can usally get it to work. When tries to turn on again when it reaches below the set temp. its sometimes does work and sometimes not. Do you know whats going out possibly?
Sounds like a relay clicking but not activating. You can test it with an ohmmeter to see if it is good or not. You can check power to the motor itself with a voltmeter if you'd like to see if the power is getting cut off at the power supply. ... Air Conditioners
