The inside of my air conditioner is full of mildew. When turned on, it spits out small pieces of black mildew. The odor is very obvious. I cleaned the louvers (as much as I could reach) with a Q Tip and sprayed the inside with Tilex Mold and Mildew Remover. That helped, but the mildew continues to build. The air conditioner is in my bedroom and since I have asthma, this is not good. I have a Fedders in my living room and have never had this problem with it. The Haier is only two years ol

I purchased your model 68069 ceiling fan light kit to install on an existing fan..

There is a condensate build up in my Trane XP 100 Air handler located in my hot Florida garage. The unit sweats on the out side and inside water drips through the heating unit which now shows rust marks and onto the squirrel cage fan. Condensate water is then splahed onto the fiberglass insulated walls of th air handler. Mold is beginning to build up both on the inside walls and on the fan unit. The air handler performs fine. My home is kept cool, but I am concerned about this condensate and

We have a carrier heat pump/ac unit. Our ductwork in the attic has condensation all over it and it is dripping thru our newly installed insulation to the sheetrock on the second floor thereby staining, leaving sheetrock wet and possibly being taken over by mold and mildew. What can be done to improve this problem. We are under a 10 year warranty plan with this unit and the company that installed it. Windows have condensation on them. Humidity is 60 to 70 percent.


Usually if there is a lot of condensation, then there is bare/uninstulated metal in the duct work. Now if the unit itself is condensating then putting a condensation pan under the unit with a drain should fix this problem. A far as the windows it w ... Carrier Air Conditioners

I installed Minka remote controlled Ceiling fan for a friend. The fan itself has 4 wires, black,orange,white, & blue.

I have a Honeywell oscillating quiet cooling tower fan that was bought two years ago. Loved it, till yesterday it just stopped working. the oscillating feature still moves, but the fan does nothing. the buttons still beep and turn on and change while plugged in, and it sounds like something is working...but obviously not everything cause the fan doesn't fan. Is it fixable? Should I send it to the manufacturer? Or just eat the cost and buy a new fan?


Could be fixable but until someone determines the problem there is no way of knowing if it is fixable. Could be a broken wire between the selector switch and the motor or the motor itself could be bad.When you are trying to operate it does the ... Air Conditioners

I have a Coleman Presidential 7670 furnace in a mobile home. customer said it came on a couple of times by itself. I ran new wire, fan won,t shut off. Replaced fan switch, fan still won't shut off. Replaced t-stat, same problem. This is an older unit and has no board it has a fan switch a low limit switch, i,m guessing the other is a high limit and a fan relay. I have no schematic and am very frustrated can anyone help me please. Thanks. Brian from california


Brian, it sounds as if possibly the fan relay is stuck however, if the fan will not shut off I would suggest the following, Follow the wires from the fan to the relay on the relay disconnect the fan wire there and see if the fan shuts down if so t ... Air Conditioners

No Fan Somebody junked this thing, I guess because the fan doesn't work. Does anybody have any experience with the fan? I figure it has to be the relay (but I hear a click), the capacitor, or the fan motor (fan rotates freely). Before I perform surgery, I'd like to clarify the diagnosis. Thanks.

A mate has a fujitsu ast24rba-w, the outdoor unit runs but the indoor fan won't go. Found indoor board buggered so I replaced it, fan still no go. Got hold of a fan that I know works and still won't run!! Checked the start capacitor and that meters ok. It won't even run on fan only. From what I can see the fan should run, there is nothing left to replace. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
