Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Hi, I have 2 Toshiba compressors (PH170X & PH160X), New, for air conditioners. Can they be used to pump air? Does this cause any problems? Do they need to be filled with oil, and if so how much? They have 3 electrical connections on top marked S / R & C. I believe R is for Red - Active, what do the other letters stand for? I would appreciate any assistance. Regads Helmut.

Answers :

No they will not pump air. the oil in the compressor circulates in the freon, the freon also cools the compressor. these run on 230 volts c-common r-run, and s- start from a capacitor. Sell them to a dealer

Have a 620765 capacitor for my Intertherm ac outside unit. There are three connections on the capacitor. 1. Fan 2. Herm 3. C I have a yellow and red wire coming from the compressor. There is an orange wire from the fan and then there's a green wire which I think is ground. On the top of the capacitor there are three sets of push on blades sticking up. Two of them which are marked Herm and fan have 4 blades each. Then there is the third one which has 2 blades sticking up which has a C next to it.

5 ton carrier. we changed the condenser motor and marked where the wires connected. Old motor had yellow and brown to capacitor. New motor has an extra brown wire with white stripe... I connected it the same way as the old one without using the extra wire.... didn't work. Advise how to connect the new 5 wire motor... red and black wires I'm confident are connected correctly.

The best way to wire that motor is to connect a separate capacitor to it. The brown and brown w/white stripe go to the capacitor. The black and red wires go to the contactor. ... Air Conditioners

We installed a Honeywell RTH230B thermostat on a Trane XE60 Air Handeler this winter. When we put the system on heat it works fine. However, when we put the system on auto for cool the compressor fan comes on but not the air handeler fan. On the air handeler the terminal strip from left to right is R W Y G B/C. The red wire on the R terminal comes from the contactor on the compressor unit. The other wire from the compressor unit is connected to a gray wire that goes to the thermostat. The W

Hi, I have a Convair TRB portable air conditioner and I dont have an instruction manual. I'm wondering about the drainage outlets on the rear of the unit. The top one (half way down) has a black tube connected to it that runs out the window with hot air duct. The bottom one doesn't have any sort of plug in it and water constantly drips out. My question is "should that outlet be plugged to stop the water draing?" If so where can I get a plug from to fit it?

That is the drainage for the condensed steam from the installation ....if you are bothered by the dropping ..just plug a tube ...and get it somewhere to be collected...it will not have to be covered for any any reason...it assures the well function o ... Air Conditioners

I have a 20 year old honeywell quartz air/heating control. I'm not really sure how to use the heater. It has two separate toggles at the top (one blue and one red), a button that you push "up" at the bottom, which appears to turn this dial inside to either red or blue, a clock thing that doesn't work, or at least appears to do nothing. The air comes out warm for a bit, and then goes cold.

The Blue knob is for cooling the red for heating. I would reccomend replacing it due to the fact the age and it probably has yrs of dust built up on the mercury bulbs which can throw the tempurature off. Dust on these old mecury style thermostats i ... Air Conditioners

A water mess in my 8 year old Aprilair 550 humidifier. The water goes into the pad and is blown right through and it splashes on the inside of the unit wall and goes down to the floor. The drain that is connected to the unit cannot catch all that water and it is not designed for this messy situation that would harm the furnace if I were to use the unit, which obviously I am not. The pad is the appropriate one and is installed properly with the black mark at the top. The unit is connected to the

Where do the 3 wires from the blower motor connect to on the control board for high speed use in the summer time? Black, Blue, and the Red one? The white is a no brainer. I can go to M1, cool, and heat. Ruud, lateral in the attic. UGPJ-10EBRJR. I have blue on M1, Black on cool, Red on heat. Does that speed take air across the evaporator the quickest? New motor ha same specs as old; 3/4 hp, 9.4 amps, same frame...matches up perfectly to the old. I'm freezing up.

Hello, the black wire is your high sped motor tap and it should be on cool as you have it. Blue is med-hi and red is your low speed motor tap. You have it wired correctly. Now the freezing can be caused by 2 things, low airflow or a low refrigerant ... Air Conditioners

The heat strip was never hooked up, there is three wires on top of the heat strip, grey, brown, and white , the thermastat is only hooked up with green yellow and red. There are two wires not hooked up a white and blue. There is a blue that is not hooked up on the unit. this is a package unit. I know that the three wires activate a relay to turn on the strip, and the white goes to both the grey and brown relays if they are some sort of relay. So I hope you can help me. drew

First find out your voltage..240 or 208...then it is 2(two) wires high voltage and ground. Both high voltage should go to transformer one on common lead another to 240 or 208 lead( if you have up to 218 use 208 lead...), transformer ground it self so ... Air Conditioners

I have an old Ruud(ac/heater)top house. Maybe 20 years old. the fan extracting hot air from coils sometimes stops working and the unit does not cool. I called a local repair man and he changed a small module of some sort. he said it was the problem. two weeks later the samething. I believe he's an idiot and im relectant in calling another repairman. I went up and with a small screwdriver i gave the fan a little push and it began to work. Can the fan motor be the problem?

Agree, this clearly is a fan motor problem when pushing it made it run.Most fans that have the same issue may need bushing / bearing replacement. and if that did not resolve the issue, then a recoil will surely put the rotating power bac ... Ruud UAKA060 Air Conditioner

Air is cool, but I hear a roaring on an off. I looked at the unit on top of the rv and notice what looked like an red insulator that has two wires coming out of it had cracked. This piece was attached on the tubing on the compressor by a screw. Is this something I can replace that will fix the problem?

That sounds like cover over compressor connections. Make sure breaker is off inside before you do, but my guess is that you may find some bad connections under there that have overheated with time. With that said, it could be caused by unit working t ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner
