Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Amana PTH153B35AK This unit is less than 30 days old, heats fine cools fine, but when i have it in heat mode,set @ 70 or so, as soon as the room heats up, the unit will cycle into a/c mode and blow super cold air for about 5 minutes than return to heating. Sometimes it will reach the desired temp. and turn off like it is supposed to do, but for the most part it just cycles back and forth from hot to cold...Amana has the worse help/service i have ever seen, i was on the phone for an hour,everybod

Have a Bryant 340MAV condensing gas furnace. Installed a new thermostat for the A/C unit middle of summer (old one slowly died). Woke up this morning to no heat - thermostat didn't automatically kick in. Programmed it manually to kick in; fans work just fine and the unit is cycling, with thermostat reading heat. But furnace won't won't heat.

I purchased a AMCOR portable air conditioner Model ALD12000E/EH on Mar 30 2009. This unit does not heat or cool only the fan works. When the unit was first received the heater worked fine although there was a strong odor associated with the heat cycle. I am not sure if this unit is worth the cost of repair. Can you make a recommendation?

Hi, whenever this type of problem is exhibited, usually we suspect the thermostat itself, as this is what ultimately controls the fan.\015\012\015\012It still maybe a sensor, (the ONLY way to tell is by substitution with a "Known Good") althou ... Air Conditioners

My coleman Mach Rv air conditioner with built in heat strip keeps tripping it's internal circuit breaker when running for any length of time. Just replaced heat strip with new one experienced same issue. I ended up with the fan continuing to run but only cold air comes out of the vents! When I removed the old unit and reset the circuit breaker it too worked again. Have no idea what is causing this to happen. The airconditing part of unit works just fine??? HELP! Ron


There should be an overload protection device in series with the low voltage wiring(t-stat wiring) Is it resting on the heat strip or too close to it? It is a saftey device to shut off the heat strips if the fan quits or a fire in the heat strip sec ... Coleman Mach III Air Conditioner

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


Hi, and no your warranty is not void due to a flooded disconnect box, this is a lie!! If both fans are running, and you have no heat or cooling, the compressor is not running. This is a heat-pump with a reversing valve. The indoor unit has a control ... Air Conditioners

The outside unit is no0t able to start the fan spinning on its own. I have been able to manually engage the outside fan by turning the unit off, turning it on, and then manually spinning the fan when it starts up. The unit will then engage the fan and runs fine until the next cycle when it cannot start the fan on its own again. Can you tell me what part needs to be replaced and about how much it will cost?

My father has an older model two and a half ton goodman gas package unit. it has had two boards put in it, the problem is that the unit will go through a heat cycle and the combustion motor and the circulating fans will not cut off.

Amana PTAC Unit is not producing heat. Fan works fine. can not locate manual reset for heat although a label on the unit says there is one. I have an Amana pth153b35ae ptac unit that the heat will not come on. The compressor will run in the cooling mode but not in heat mode. I verified the switching valve is working and the capacitor seems to be fine as the compressor will run in cooling mode.

My goodman heat pump has frozen up 3-4 times already this summer. It is a dual system 10 seer (i believe are the terms). Every time someone comes out they can't figure it out because the system is running fine by the time that they come. Two years ago the blower or activator was replaced (maybe the replacement part isn't so good?) The unit is 9 years old. Last year a guy charged it and about a month ago when it was checked the freon was only a little low. I'm SO tired of this issue. Any ideas


After system has been running 10-15 minutes, the discharge air temp should be 18-22 degrees colder than the air being sucked in. If the air is more than 22 degrees colder then the problem is with air flow. Check filters, blower speed, make sure all ... Air Conditioners

I have a Lg LWC122RH-2 Window Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner. It is 5 years old. The fan works fine. The Cooling and heating don't work. When I turn it on to cool setting, I can hear the compressor trying to kick in and a popping sound and can hear the unit go up and down a bit, like a humming sort of sound.


Think yu must take your compressor to the specialist so that they can check if cycling valve is operating. or may be wiring problem to the valve. ... LG Heat cool Window Air Conditioner

Works fine on cool; on heat it puts out hot air for a minute or two and then gets stuck in a defrost(I guess) cycle with a strange noise from the evaporator/fan (inside) unit. It is a Rheem branded product I think the salesman said was made by Goodman when installed about 3-4 years ago.

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.
