Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Condensor? There was a build up of water in the tray and I heard the fan in the back going through it. I had to drill a hole to drain the water because there was not one. It is know much quieter and running better except that the condensor or motor does not kick in even when set to 60 degrees. I waited the 3 minutes still nothing. It just runs in fan mode even when on cool.

Answers :

It probably shut off on high pressure. Let it cool down, plug your hole that you drilled and give it another try. The water is suppose to collect there and the fan is suppose to throw it into the condenser to keep it cooler and make it run more efficiently. Good Luck,

Have a RHEEM Central air/heat system.Model: 13AJN36A01All works well, except when my heat is on, if I switch the fan on the thermostat from AUTO to ON, my condensor unit outside kicks on. Looked up this model and it doesn't contain a heat pump so I don't believe it should ever kick on the condensor unit when the heat is on (regardless of fan setting).

Air conditioner I have a Honeywell air conditioner unit. For the last several days it has failed to cool down to the temp I set except at night. When I came in this evening it was 87 degrees in the house. I went to the main unit in the garage and flipped the fuse buttons to off and then back on. Then I dd the same at the main fuse box for the house. (Dont ask me why I thought this would help). Now I can't get the unit to turn on at all. Any ideas?

Yes, first turn your thermostat to the off position. Try to reset both fuse boxes again. If the ac comes back on problem solved, if not fuses and or breakers may need to be replaced.\015\012\015\012Let me know if this helps and we can go futher into ... Haier Energy Star ESA3183 Air Conditioner

I have a Dometic 15,000 btu, ducted air conditioner in my 30 ft fifth wheel. It seems like the unit has never cooled very efficiently. Dealer has checked out. I noticed yesterday, outside air over 100 degrees, that the air conditioner would put out good flow of cool air, but once in a while compressor would stop running even though not close to thermo setting. Fan would continue running. Any suggestions?

Not sure what the pressure sensor should ohm at but i would suspect a faulty sensor if everything else checks out. Its very common for these sensors to exhibit issues when they get hot. Also you may have a filter in the system that may be restricte ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

When I switch the T-stat to (fan on) the blower won't come on unless I move the Fan limit up close to the 100 degree mark and then I move that limit back down close to 130-135 degree and after approx. 10 seconds blower shuts off. I'm not sure where that fan limit is supposed to be set at, it was originally set around 130-135. It's a 2 wire limit and the range is 100-140. I know the stat is sending signal, I get 24v on green term. at fan center relay. Thanks, Dave

To help you we need more info. What thermostat and what furnace or air handler. There are two circuits involved. One is the green wire or g terminal that switches the fan relay into high speed for ac. The other is the w white that actuates the fan cy ... Air Conditioners

Our thermostat is set at hold with the fan on auto. The house and cool temp is set at 75 degrees, yet the fan will stay on CONTINUOUSLY unless I manually take down the temperature OR the outside temp falls below 75 degrees over a several hour period. This can't be efficient? HELP!

It is ok to run your fan continously. constant air filtering as long as it pauses before a/c cycles on. will not use any more electricity than a toaster. is there a fan programing feature on t-stat. if so you will need to turn programing to fan o ... Amana Air Conditioners

I just moved into a new place and it has the RTH230B thermostat installed. I turned on the furnace, set the thermostat to "Heat" then the fan to "Auto" and used the up and down arrows to set the temp to 72 degrees. The temperature seemed fine for the first hour or so. However, the heat and fan stays on full power and continued to heat at full power well into 80 degrees on the thermostat screen. I could only shut it off by turning off the actual furnace switch. I first tried reducing the temper

I just bought a house that has a Lochinvar heating boiler RB945-RB500 PKG-7002. Ive heard it has never heated the space adequately. Today I looked at the water temp setting in the control box and found that it was set at about 200 degrees. However the best I can tell the actual water temperature never gets above 130 degrees according to the meter on the boiler's side.. What is my problem?

Hi,\015\012Not finding that exact model number...but...\015\012I think what you have is a modulating boiler that also varies the water temperature based on the outdoor temperatures...\015\012Because of that what you are seeing is th ... Air Conditioners

My bonaire evaporative cooler cycles from high to low fan speeds when set in the cool mode. It works fine at the required speed setting when just the fan (no water) is selected. It also dumps water immediatly the cooling cycle is turned off rather than holding it for about 40Min as it should. Sounds like a controller problem, but I'm not sure if it would be the touch pad or the board up on the roof mounted unit.

Air conditioner/furnace was working for the past few months. Came home today at it is at 81 degrees, although my set temperature was set at 72 degrees. Temperature is rising to 83 degrees and I can't figure out why the air conditioner won't run properly. I turned the fan on from auto to on and it's blowing warm air. The default scree on reads the current temperature at 82 degrees with a circle and snow flake above it and an downward arrow where the word room is written. Any suggestions? I t

Check outside breakers. Open up outside panel and see if contactor is pulled in. If so you have a voltage problem or a bad capacitor. Sometimes a wire burns off. So look for this. If you have a float switch on the inside unit it may be tripped. Stopp ... Air Conditioners

Have an oil fired boiler for baseboard heat and it also has a tankless heater for domestic hot water. No heat being called for only getting hot water for use. Boiler goes to 210 degrees before it knocks off. It seem to push hot water through baseboard eventhough not calling for it. The controls are set to high limit 160 degrees

These boilers usually have multiple controls. The control that would take it out of the circuit at 210 degrees is a safety. \015\012\015\012You should definitely have a professional take a look at this unit before you continue using it. ... Air Conditioners

Hi there, I just moved into a new house with this heating system. I have it on winter mode to heat water for showers etc but the last 3 days the water is still luke warm.. i have tried the extra hot water function for a day but nothing happens.Is there a particular setting it has to be on or does the fan speed need to be at a certain setting? thanks, Sarah.

There should be an access panel on the water heater.Take it off and check the temperature setting.If there is insulation covering it,just cut a **** in it,about near the middle toward the front side facing out from where it is,or it could be on the s ... Air Conditioners

Our total line thermostat was set on 73 degrees and all of a sudden it went to 99 degrees and I counld not turn it off, it just kept running. So I turned off the breaker and turned in back on and now I can't set the temperature. It's just set on 99 and won't do anything. When I turn the fan on, the air won't get cold.

Hi, it sounds as though you have a faulty thermostat that failed before your eyes. The circuitry in the sub-base has failed. If the stat is set in the off posistion and you turn the fan switch on, just the fan will run. If it is on cool and you turn ... Air Conditioners

I have an old Kenmore window unit that looks like a 72055 (control panel on top left). Although I have it set at 90 degrees and the room temperature is 75, the fan cycles on and off. How can I set it so than neither the fan nor the cooling comes until the set temperature is reached?

Most have a 'continious \012\012 mode' that operates the air moving fan whenever the unit is on, or a 'cycling mode' that operates from a temp sensor usually near the input over the evaporator coil.Look for the instruction for setting the mode ... Air Conditioners

My ac unit will not go below 77 degrees. It quit working about 1.5 weeks ago, and I had a service technican come and look at it. He replaced the capacitor and the unit started back up and would cool to 75 degrees (where I usually have it set). He checked the pressure of the unit as well and said that it was fine. However I came back from a trip and the thermostat read 77 degrees even though I have it set on 75, and the temperature will not go any lower. This is the same thing it was doing

Hi, It sounds to me like you have covered all of the basis. The evaporator coil should be clean if you keep your filter clean and the condensation is showing that it is cooling properly. Normally, when the temperature increases outside, you will loos ... Air Conditioners

1998 rover 214. after few mins of switching car on, the water bottle will start to bubble like mad,and its like a creamy gunge,if i switch my heaters on, the heaters stay cold and the bubbling in water bottle gets violantly worse,(even banging the bottle with the pressure).The temp gauge will stay at half way even though fan kicks in,but it will go up to the red if i drive.

This sounds like you have an air bubble in your system, I would pressure test for leaks. The creamy grunge sounds like oil in the coolant...if that is the case, exploritory surgery is the next step. ... Air Conditioners
