Broken Knob for fan control

\015 The knob broke and we had been using a pair of pliers to turn the knob post, but now that broke. We need to take the front plastic molding off to see if we can repair the broken knob/post ourselves. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

Once you take off the front housing, the switch itself shoud be easy to remove and replace...sometimes, a used appliance store/repair office can get a suitable replacement part. Trick is to mark the wires as you remove them from the switch and take hte switch with you while you go part hunting. Also would help to have model and serial number (and brand name) noted to take along.\015\012\015\012Papdaddy

Intertherm G4RK096C-16 Gas Furnace Fan not cutting in during heating cycle. If we wiggle the wires, fan cuts in. Some time ago during servicing, a variable speed control for the fan was installed. There is now a red wire going to the fan connector on the control panel and a blue wire with a spade tip is taped off. If we were to disconnect the variable speed control, which wire (red or blue) should be connected to the connector on the control panel?

I have a LUX TX9000LC control, connected to a Carrier Model 394GA036100. The controls don't seem to control the furnace or air conditioning. The fan on the furnace runs continuously even when the switch on the control is in the off position. The only way I can turn the fan off on the furnace is to switch off the power to it. I put new batteries in the TX9000LC. No change. Thank you, Ron Casto


Ron, \015\012It sounds as though a "safety device" opened on your gas furnace......which shut off your furnace and has the fan running non-stop. Go to your gas furnace and look for manual reset switches......these switches typically have a smal ... Air Conditioners

My Airworks ceiling fan with remote stopped working. With Room light switch in 'on' position, remote no longer turns light on or controls fan speeds. Changed 9-volt battery but did not make a difference. In the compartment where 9-volt battery sits there is a small switch that has 4 tiny switches. Are these for any particular function of the ceiling fan? If it was only the bulb that needs replacement why should not the remote control the fan operation? Can you help or make suggestions to try?

My compressor unit outside runs and cools Freon but the inside blower has a problem running. the model # is 2TEE3F31A1000AA. The fan control, in fan run control mode, shows a bright green for the fan LED and the CFM selection LED varies with the rotational speed of the fan. The motor tries to start showing , initially, a jerky back & forth movement. It squeaks some and may, or may not, start rotating. If it starts the CFM LED goes bright/on no flicker and the motor runs briefly (5 seconds) then

I have a Goodman Package unit Model # PGJ 03075-1. The blower motor only rocks back and forth while the compressor and fan run and begin to form frost on the pipes. I replaced the large capacitor, main control board, fan control board, thermostat, and removed the control module off the back of the ECM motor to look for burned areas. There are no visible burned areas. Any ideas on what to check next? Rick
