Ruud 300 thermostat in heat pump mode and I don't have the manual to get it out of that mode. It was working fine then switched to this mode. No more cold air.

I just had a new a/c - heat pump installed on my 5th wheel. The a/c works well but when I turn on the heat pump it seems to blow air about the same temperature as inside the coach. I seem to hear the compressor turn on, outside temp is around 55 degrees. I had a rv service company come out (was about 75 degrees then) and they said it has no problem and that the heat pumps don't really work that well. I can tell you that I left it on for close to an hour later that night when it cooled down and n

Hello, I have two Yokohama Split type air conditioners that work fine for cooling, but when switched to heat they just blow air at room temperature and then after about 1 minute go into a standby mode indefinately. They work perfectly for cooling. All fans work perfectly and the compressor works perfectly for cooling. Thanks...

Is it ok to replace outside unit of central air and heat and not the inside air handler ? The upstairs A/C( over 10 yrs old) is not keeping up with South Texas heat. The temp upstairs climbs to 84-86 degrees by the afternoon and takes 4 or more hours after dark to cool back down. I have cleaned the entire unit outside- no help. I have replaced the downstairs unit 2 yrs. ago and it works fine. I don't want to replace the upstairs air handler if I don't have to---much more cost.

Hi Expert, my reverse cycle aircon is Samsung model name=AQY09NSBN, only fan is working on the outside and inside unit at the moment, no heat air or cool air coming out of the inside unit, even tried with different temperature setting. Everything was fine till my gutter downspout was blocked and the switchbox outside near the unit was flooded and the aircon was on and off by itself every three seconds, so I turned the aircon off from the main switch outside. I got an electrician to replace the

Have a Grand Aire Central Air and Heating unit a/heat pump...has been working fine. Switched it over to heat and nothing came on. Switched it back over to air, which was working and still nothing came on. Switched fan from ''auto'' to ''on'' and the fan will not come on.

The air conditioner has a flashing red light on the thermostat. The heat is not working. The fan will turn on if switched to ON, but will not engage if just on AUTO. Even when the air is blowing, there is no hot air. It is about fifty degrees in the house right now. - I checked the breakers, and put everything through a power cycle, nothing is having an effect.

I have an American Standard Freedom-80 Two stage furnace/AC. After replacing my old Honeywell with a new Honeywell RTH2310 thermostat (which the guy from A-1 Heating & A/C assured me was compatible with my system) the A/C won't kick on. The thermostat is registering the ambient temp & when I turn the thermostat fan switch to ''on'', the fan turns on, but not with cold air. I have not even tried the heat because it was 89 degrees F inside already, but would expect the same issue. The metal doo
If your system worked prior to installing the new thermostat, then you may have to change how your thermostat is wired in the rear, as I encountered the exact same problem in that regard. Beyond that, if you have a blinking light, chances are it may ... Air Conditioners
I have a 18000btu LG mini split heat pump installed about 1 year ago in vacation home. In heat mode the unit cycles on and off when room temp is within 2-3 degrees of set point. Cycle on time varies between 35 to 60 seconds (sometimes more). The off time is 2-3 minutes. During this time, I check inside temp with accurate digital themometer mounted at the air intake of the unit and the temp does not change, assume because unit does not run long enough. When I put temp set point more than 3 d

I have a problem with my central heat / air unit. As it is getting cold now, I am using the heat. My problem is that I must turn the thermostat to the on position to get the unit to come on. In the auto mode, nothing happens. I can get very cold but not ever kick on until I move the switch to the on position. In the on position it works fine. Thinking that my problem was with the wall thermostat, I replaced that. I do not remember having this problem with the A/C. What should I look for to fix t
Look on your thermostat one switch (for the fan) will say off/on/auto. The other switch (for operation mode) will say off/ac/heat. The switches should be set at fan auto and mode heat. Some have an auto for the heat/ac if that is the case your thermo ... Air Conditioners
I just had a new compressor installed in my heat pump. My heat pump compressor turns off (I can hear it) in air conditioner mode when the outside temperature is greater than 95F. The temperature inside the house rises quickly in the afternoons during these conditions. It works great when outside temperature is < than 95F. Is there a problem?
It sounds as if it is tripping on high pressure. This can be directly related to outdoor temp. Most residential a/c units will run a maximum capacity over 95 degrees. The compressor should not be shutting down though.The best thing you ca ... Air Conditioners

This is a heating and cooling through the wall heat pump. It works normally when heating is selected - the heat pump runs and both speeds of the fan blow warm air. But nothing runs when cooling is selected. In other words the unit works normally when "High Heat" or "Low Heat" is selected but nothing runs when "High Cool", "Low Cool" or "Fan Only" is selected. The position of the Fan Cycle Switch has no effect - behavior of the unit is the same in both positions of the Fan Cycle Switch.

The heat pump is not working properly. i think the problem is in the switch mechanism. when the heat is on and the thermostat is turned up it blows cold air. sometimes the compressor turns on and off. if you turn the other switch to the off position, then turn the thermostat up then turn it back to heat. it will blow hot air. if you then turn the thermostat down, wait till it turns off, then turn it back up, it will blow room temp air and sometimes the compressor will turn on.

My 1991 model Intertherm 2 1/2 self contained heat pump was fine Sunday morning, then in evening was blowing 75 degree air and not having success against current mid-to upper 90's.

Next day, by evening in same terrible heat wave, is blowing 73 degree air. Is there a leak??? Seems the repairman spent long enough to tell pressure was being kept... My call to his

I have an intertherm rpbmb030k combo a/c and heat. Had frion put in the unit over the summer and a new digital thermostat. Unit has worked great until we needed heat. Unit works great on aux. heat but keeps switching to to defrost mode when standard heat is on. Switched out the defrost board on the unit to no avail and an a/c guy checked to ensure the new thermostat was wired correctly.
Hi, if the unit had a leak in it, was the leak located and repaired? Did he check the pressures in the unit now? If it switches to the aux mode ( Heat Strips ) is normally caused when your primary unit, compressor and freon are low on charge. I would ... Intertherm P3RA-060K Air Conditioner
