My indoor unit on my heat pump will not shut off. The electric heat keeps running, and the fan keeps running. It only happens when it is really cold, like 25deg or below, above that and it functions fine. The outdoor unit shuts off, but the indoor stays running. I do HVAC work, but I have never seen a problem like this. I have switched the stat out, and its just so strange. I figured the relay may be stuck, but if I turn the stat off, it turns off shortly after which tells me it may not be the c

I turn on the Central A/C unit with the thermostat. The attic fan unit goes on and the system cools the house. When the system shuts down the fan unit shuts off but the outside compressor keeps running. The only way the outside compressor goes now off is when I flip the 240 switch on the main box. This just started. Is it a thermostat problem? Thanks.
Could be a thermostat problem but even more likely the contactor on the unit outside is stuck. In order to change this part you will have to get in to the outdoor unit. The contactor is the automatic switch that the thermostat energizes when the t ... Air Conditioners

Some times it gets warm other times I have to raise temp. to get unit to shut as it gets too cold.

Unit spits after it has been on for a while, i shut it off because i am affraid it will harm the unit it if i keep it on when it is spiting out ice and what can i do to correct the problem also should I shut it off and if so for how long .

I have a 98 Sunnybrook w/Dometic Furnace-A/C thermostat control. Just the other day, the furnace would keep running and it got very hot in the trailer until I could shut it off. The thermostat was set kind of low, but we needed to keep a little heat on in case we got a freeze. Do I need to replace the control unit which is electronic to correct the problem? I am assuming the thermostat went bad, but am also assuming it is a part of the control unit?! Thanks for your help. Dave

Our fan for the intertherm p3ra-024k will not shut off. We have put new wiring from thermostat to unit. He pulled the green wire like the serviceman told him to when he serviced it and it still keeps running. The only way it will shut off if you shut the power off to it. Any Suggestions?
You have a problem with the wiring somewhere it could be in the thermostat. When the service man said pull the green wire off that was the power to the fan. The thermostat should wire up as red to the R terminal on the thermostat this is the 24 vol ... Intertherm P3RA-024K Air Conditioner

My AC My Compressor keeps kicking off. I turn the unit on, the fan works. The Heat works but the compressor turns in about 60 sec. If I unplug the unit and turn it back on, it comes on but the compressor shuts off again after 60 sec. Can this be from dirt in the coils? They have some build up. Any other causes?

Did the 2 fans have the same rpm. If there is not enough airflow through the outside unit the compressor will shutdown on high discharge pressure. Also make sure the fan blades are positioned right if there is a shroud for them. Did the other motor h ... Air Conditioners
Have a GF500 Monitor Propane Heater - keeps shutting down. Once it reaches the set termperature the burner begins to back off, and then the "burner status" buttons start flashing and the unit shuts down. Restart - does the same thing, but will run on and off for a period of time fine.
This sounds like your thermo-couple has a short, or is defective, it is supposed to kick off at the set temperature, then turn the burner back on after it cools down, a temperature probe is usually coonected o this as well, either one of which could ... Air Conditioners
My unit's compressor will intermittantly stop working. The thermostat seems to keep the intake unit working but since it can't get the temperature down it never shuts off. We have been removing the batteries and letting the thermostat reset for 20 minutes. (thermostat Honeywell RTH23110B). After the reset the compressor will work again but will fault within a day.

Cooling well it starts just fine cools for about two minutes then the compressor shuts off unexpectedly? i thought it might be the thermostat? i bypassed the thermostat completely but no luck? i can here the compressor come on when the unit is switched on and it does appear to cool down before the compressor shuts off and the fan keeps running.
Check if the condensar ( outside fan unit) is getting enough free ventilation. IF there is no free air flow you will mostlikely be triping the unit due to short cycling. Ie the unit is pulling its own discherge air causing the compressor to trip due ... Haier HPAC9M Air Conditioner
