12AJB42AO1 WEATHERKING MODEL12AJB4LAO1 208 1PH DRAWING APROXIMATELY 6.5 KW, IS THIS A 3 TON UNIT OR WHAT AND WHAT KW IS EXPECTED TO RUN THE UNIT


Answers :

Hi, \015\012 Check the mod # again. They don't have a 4L. If it is a 12AJB42AO1 it is 3.5 ton, If it is 12AJB48AO1, Its 4 ton. Not sure of the KW but it should have the Amp draw listed on the name plate although it probably wont draw that much. If you want to see if it has a proper charge in it, the suction line should be sweating all the way to the compressor but the compressor should stay pretty dry. If no sweat back or if its froze, its probably low, If compressor is all wet, Its overcharged. Hope I have helped. If not, please go into more detail on what you need.\015\012kstfas

Hello, I have goodman 3 ton a/c that runs ok for about a half hour or so then the condenser stops running because the circuit breaker pops off. The a/c tech check the units draw ( 13 amps) and thought it was ok. We thought then it was a faulty breaker. We then put a new breaker (30 amp). Later same result. a/c works ok then trips breaker. Wait awhile then reset breaker and it runs again. What would cause the breaker to trip like that. Any ideas? Thanks


First of all, let me caution you to remove the 30 amp breaker and put back the 20 that was there. It's not to code. It's too big for the wire size. Second, you will need to monitor the circuit with a 'clamp on' amp meter to verify the current d ... Goodman CKL36AR36 Air Conditioner

Hi, we have a problem with our Weatherking heating unit/ air conditioner. We had it installed 07/20/06. It really never has worked properly. For the last 2 summers in run's constantly. Which of course makes our electric bills outragous. Our house is around about 2200 square feet. This unit is a 4 ton unit. What could be the problem. Please help. Thank you. The model # is 13AJA48A01


Lets look at the whole problem. Did you have a new unit inside. Is the charge correct for unit. 1 lb of refrigerant makes difference. Four tons should be big enough if you have proper insulation. I have three tons in a 2100 square foot house. Its ple ... Weather King 12AJA4801AH Air Conditioner

This is for a Friedrich QStar SQ06J10 AC unit - When switch is normally shifted to the 'cool' position ('on' mode), it seems to not complete the circuit. Jiggling or pressing hard on the switch will make the unit run, but one has to hold the switch. Can a DIY-approach fix the connection, so the unit will run as expected? or does the switch panel need to be replaced? Relatedly, might it be 'better' to simply swap out this unit for a newer, possibly more-efficient unit?

Earlier this week, I noticed that the house felt "stuffy" but the thermostat showed everything to be cooling as expected. Last night, the house was definitely warmer than expected when we got home.

I recently bought a 4 ton 14.5 SEER Rudd Spilt system using R-410 and matching Rudd furnace. This system replaced a Lennox 10 SEER 4 ton unit. Now that it has gotten hot in Baton Rouge LA 90-93 degrees. I have a programmable thermostat see bottom. It takes the one hour to drop the temp. 1 degree so starting at 5:00pm the unit runs non stop until 11:30 at night. The Lennox was about 3 times better and it was 15 years old.

I have a Rheem heat pump/air handler; it draws 2.9amps with only the fan running, 13amps when the heat pump is running and 38amps with the heat strips on. My question is why the unit draws that many amps when in heat pump mode? Isn't all of the work being done by the compressor outside?

I have a Duo Therm unit on the roof of our 1995 Nomad camper trailer. I think the contactors are stuck closed..here is why.

Have 3.5 ton scroll compressor, single phase, that will not run. Checked start, run, common windings all ohmed ok. Checked for case ground/short, none detected. Replaced contactor and capacitor with new. Still will not run. Force contactor closed to energize leads to comp and voltage is there, but comp will not kick off. Checked amp draw on incoming line is 4.5 due to only condenser fan running. If comp was locked amps would be very high and if internal wiring were shorted it would show open
