Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Ruud Problems I have a Ruud Acheiver 90, I'm having some problems, the rollout (burner) limit switches are opening, and there is an electrical burning smell. It seems that sometimes the squirrel cage isn't kicking on, but when I reset manual limits and give the squirrel cage a manual turn, the heater runs fine, sometimes.

Thanks for your question,yup your fan motor is bad, if you need to manually start it each time then the motor winding are bad and it is not getting the air across the coils, which in turn are over heating, thus causing a burning sm ... Air Conditioners

Totaline Thermostat. P474 1035 Batteries died while I was out of town. I thought a simple replacement would have it up and running! Screen comes on and reads the room temp just fine but will no longer turn on the a/c in any mode (manual or auto). I looked at the manual and it gives a wonderful warning "The manufacturer cannot be liable for improper operation of the thermostat if the batteries are not immediately replaced." Help!!! Is there any way to fix it? This is a time I wish I wasn't


Not good news...the manufacturer is issuing this disclaimer because of a reason. I would contact the manufacturer and explain the situation to them, since you couldn't replace the batteries as you were out of town. \015\012Here's a web blog ... Air Conditioners

My Carrier 58WAV136 forced air heater's problem is as follows - Thermostat works fine, when desired temp is reached, the fan motor (blower) kicks on. Sometimes it stays blowing for a couple of seconds, sometimes a minute. Often, the electric heating element will heat up and the gas furnace will light. But, the system will shut itself off within a few seconds and will try all over again. The LED sensor will blink 3 times fast, then one time. I do not have the manual to look this info up. Thanks f


There should be a code list inside the furnace panel access door. Find it and see what code 41 says, as I can't remember right off hand. Some of the possible causes could be air in gas line or low gas pressure. Could have blocked vent especialy if ve ... Carrier Air Conditioners

Blower fan in the inside unit tries to turn on but wont. It can be turned manually and air conditioner comes on and runs fine. The " squirrel " cage spins completely freely and is not sticky or jammed. Is the motor bad or is it a run capacitor. Model number of inside unit is a49-15

Our compressor burnt-out with a smoke and electric isolation burn smell. A disassemble has shown that the relay was gone with one of the cables burnt out. I would like to check if the motor is fine, how can i do that?


You have a very good chance that the compressor will still work. If the clixon and starter are loose in any way on the terminals or if the wire connections are'nt connecting tightly, that will result in the wiring and components burning out. Contac ... Air Conditioners

Kenmore 580.75151500 A/C unit smells... We've had this window unit in place for 2 years. We've cleaned the front filter and coil, but we're still getting different, peculiar smells from the A/C. Sometimes it's vingar, sometimes urine-like, sometimes moldy smelling. Is there some place else that we can clean it? I've downloaded the user manual, but it's really just a parts manual - doesn't say anything about maintenance or upkeep. Thanks


Hi!!\015\012\015\012As you know, the evaporator unit (the one that the filter covers) gets a lot of condensation which is drained thru the back (outside) of the unit. That's why the unit is installed a bit tilted to the back.\015\0 ... Kenmore Air Conditioners

Hi, just replaced the capacitor thinking that would solve the problem but it appears it did not. The motor outside would kick on the unit inside would kick on but the blower motor inside works sometimes and wont other times. Basically, the unit will work just fine all day then we notice the house is getting warm, check the inside unit and everything is running fine but the blower motor is not circulating the air. I have a goodman a30-10 unit. I read where some people said the relay could be bad

B93-366 Indoor Unit Ours is mounted on the wall in a new room addition (3 years ago). Has worked fine. Used it with remote control a few days ago. It worked fine. Turned it off with remote control. next day would not turn on at all. Replaced batteries in remote. Didn't Help. Tried manual override on the unit itself. Still nothing. We have misplaced our manual. Any suggestions?


You will have to remove the front panel and check the fuse to make sure that it did not pop. Also check your breaker switch to make sure that your breaker did not pop. Those can be your really only two issuesPlease rate ... Air Conditioners

Unit will only hum and won't start up on its own unless I spin the squirrel cage ( with unit off ) by hand. After spinning cage for varying amounts of time it will free up the resistance and I will turn the unit on - give it a few more spins by hand (being carefull of my fingers getting caught ) and the cage will start spinning on its own. If the unit is turned off the problem occurs again and I have to start all over. (Whirlpool Air Conditioner Model Number ACQ122XK1) Any hints will be apprec

Have Sunbeam Electric Blanket T067PH Style 85KQP. One side works fine. The other dual control has two squiggly lines where it normally displays a number and that side does not heat.

Turned it on for the first time this year. After a few minutes it would stop working but all the light indicators are still on. I made sure that the energy saver is off, that is is getting the full 220 volts, and presst the test and reset buttons on the plug. No results. Unplugged it for a few minutes and tried again. Same deal -- would start and then stop working after a few minutes but also noticed a burned electrical smell. Could it be the capacitor or something?


Yes, it could very well be a burned capacitor or a burned wire from over heating, Best advice is to unplug the unit and do not attempt to use it, until it is repaired.To find an authorized service in your area, click on the link below. ... Friedrich Compact Programmable CP24N30 Air Conditioner

I have a Coleman Evcon gas furnace model# DGAT095ADA last year I replaced the T-O-D #60T82 - 313675 fan switch and works fine. This year the unit started fine, but slowly started taking longer & longer to heat up, then finally not heating up enough to trip fan switch. Manually tripping fan switch resulted in some warm air through system, but not enough to heat a house. Gas comes on and is blue what would be my next course of action ?

I've had to replace the blower motor on an old GE electric furnace three times in the past year. The first time the motor just stopped working. So I replaced it with an A.O. Smith motor for the summer. It worked just fine during the summer. Winter comes along, switch the thermostat to heat and the house fills up with light smoke with a smell of burning plastic. I replace it again with the same brand and model # along with a new capacitor. It ran fine for about an hour or two, then it began to bl

AC Condenser motor will stop at 1pm but inside unit is still running but no AC. If I turn the AC unit breaker unit off and then an hour later turn it back on. The unit runs fine all day until 1pm. Had a tech out and he checked the system and it's fine. He said I may have a thermostat problem and he would need to see the manual. My theromastat is programable (Carrier, 4 zone, Comfort II) with 3 remote temp sensors. How do I troubleshoot this?

Strange smell The A/C has been operating normaly until last week. we used it 2 weeks ago with no problems. It wasn't used for one week. The next time we went to use it there was a strange smell with the cold air. I have since removed the case and used Clorox wipes to clean the squirrel cage. I did not notice any mold. I noticed some rust stains at the bottom of the radiator (the cold one). The rust was around the bottom of both side supports for the cooling pipes. I could just faintly sm
