Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Intertherm My home intertherm unit will only run on aux heat. We have replaced the compressor and the fan relay and nothing has changed. What else could it be? Thank you


Answers :

Is the contactor engaging? Make sure it is getting 24v. If not, check the low pressure safety, outside thermostat (if you have one) and the defrost board. Follow the low voltage from the thermostat to all these controls, up to the contactor. Check the thermostat too. If you need a walk through I can help, if you have a volt/ohm meter.

Fan Hello, my ac unit blower on the inside is working fine but, the outside fan isn't. i just bought a new relay switch due to that what it was a few years back. but, it's not working the outside fan. so, my question could it be another relay switch? or the compressor? Thanks


Hi wild 36.\015\012I think the problem may be a bad run capacitor. If the outside unit is humming with no action, that may be it.\015\012\015\012This could also cause the outside unit circuit breaker to trip.\015\012\015 ... Air Conditioners

AC, Fan-Auto, Fan-On... nothing works. the request from the Thermostat doesn't engage anything. Thermostat Dispay works. How do I know if it is getting the 24volts from the relay? I presume the display wouldn't work if the 24v from relay wasn't there. I have two separate systems in the house. So therefore, I pulled the thermostat off the base and tried it on the faulty system. No luck. Still same issue. Perhaps it's the Honeywell base itself? what electronics are in there that could fail? How ca


Open the air handler. Locate the low voltage transformer. One side is 220 volts input. The other is 24 volts output. Take your VOM and touch the test leads to the input to verify 220v in. Then touch the other 2 leads to verify 24v out.If you ha ... Honeywell Air Conditioners

Dear Sir/Madam, I have a 12 years old Goodman split AC. Recently the blower in the air handler was not starting sometimes. I changed the capacitor, but the problem is still there. I guess that the fan relay switch may be bad. Where can I find the fan relay switch for Goodman center AC? The model no for air handler is AW24-05c, the serial no is 9904464660. You help will be much appreciated. Thanks, Sherman

My fan on my heat pump turns off every time the compressor turns on. What could cause this. Could it be a faulty reversing valve? Fan relays? Bad thermostat? I am out of ideas and nothing has worked yet.

I have a Trane XE 1100 Heat Pump. It is not cooling. My air handler blower works. The outside fan does not. I changed out both capacitors. When you turn unit on you can hear the relay activate. Then only a hum. Is the fan motor bad or the relay? How do i test? The light on the module blinks once a second which is normal operation. Thanks


Probablly the fan. Do this test. Move the fan side to side. and up and down. Any more than 1000ths inch play and that motor is bad. When the bearing gets thin the rotor will rub the stator and lock up. This is called polling out. If the motor is stif ... Air Conditioners

I have an intertherm central air unit in my mobile home that does not change fan speed when I click the fan speed switch. I've checked the fan relay which is good and energized in the ac mode which should put the speed switch in the circuit. It is a PSC fan motor and I haven't checked the capacitor.

There is power to the fan and you can hear it trying to turn(it does spin so its not the fan)but no air is blowing,could it be the fan motor,is there a way to tell if the motor is any good,or is there something else that I can check.I am currently unemployed so anything I can do to save a service call would really help.

Hello my air conditioner is not blowing cold air. It seems like only the fan is working. I set the temp to between 16-18 celcius and the temp that is showing is 28 celcius. Also is showing E5 on the ac small screen. It was serviced about 3 weeks ago and was working fine. This problem started about 2 days ago. Nothing has changed and nothing has been tampered with. Hope you can help Thanks :)


What did they do when it was serviced?It sounds like there may be a leak if it does not get cold at all anymore.Although,lasting 3 weeks,depending on how much you used it,it would be a very tiny hole leaking.The other most likely suspect would be the ... Air Conditioners

Blower fan stays running. Fan relay attached to small circuit board (coil tabs [timer?]). Capacitor on small circuit board had ''fallen out'' of ic board. Tried to get replacement board, and was sold just a standard relay - told that relay alone replaced the previous relay -and- circuit board configuration (?). Problem still exists (no change). Also changed thermostat just to eliminate as a possible cause, but seems like problem must be in the fan relay area. Question about the wires attache

My Sanyo ks2432a unit's motor makes a gear winding type noise. Sort of like a classic hot rod car that has a gear drive installed instead of a timing chain. When the motor ramps up to the next speed the pitch gets higher. Question is there a bearing that I could change? or would I have to replace the fan motor assembly? Thanks in advance!
