Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I just got a new honeywell thermostat and it when i first hooked it up it wouldnt turn on so i check to find out which connections on the thermostat when open i changed my wire to make it correct now when it turns on it doesnt turn off. i only have 2 wire that were on the old thermostat and the new one shows spots for 3 wire do i need to run a 3rd wire to get the furnace to shut off after it reaches desired temp? right now i have to disconnect the thermostatto shut it off.?

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assit you. If you did not turn the power off to the furnace before rerplacing the thermostat then you may have burned out the board in the furnace. But first if there is a RH/Rc terminal in the new thermostat then try removing the jumper between the two and see if the thermostat will operate properly.

Hi i have a white rodgers thermostat model 1f58w-58. And I need help! We tried to change the thermostat to a new one, but for some reason the ac would not turn on. So we put the old one (white rodgers) and put all the wires back how they were and it still won't turn on! is there a fuse or something?

Goodman GSH130301AB heat pump with Braeburn 1200 multi-stage thermostat - both less than 1 year old and installed in new construction. Heat can be set at 60, fan on AUTO, with room temp at 70 and heat will kick on and stay on. When this happens, turning thermostat to OFF does nothing - system continues to blow heat - and I can only shut it off by flipping the breaker. This only happens now and then - typically works fine. All wiring appears to be correct though reversing valve for cooling is

I was installing a new thermostat and in the process lost power to the thermostat. I crossed the red and green wires and the fan didn't turn on. I check the outside compressor and inside air handler and found no 5 amp fuse. Does it have one or did i short out the transformer in the air handler and need to replace it?


You can ck the low side of the transformer to see if you are getting 24v with a mutimeter. If you are then look on the cicuit board for a fuse. It would look like a fuse you would find under thr hood of your car. flat with two probes. Purple or pin ... Air Conditioners

The blower in my Ruud gas furnace won't shut off. It just runs and runs. The thermostat is set to "off" and the fan switch is set to "auto". We haven't used the furnace or AC the past few months since we haven't needed it, so it's been in the off position. Then yesterday out of nowhere the blower randomly fired up and hasn't turned off since. It just runs and runs until I kill it at the breaker. The thermostat is about two years old so it's fairly new. I replaced its batteries and that didn't


I'm not sure what setup your unit has but the fan relay sound like it is bad. If your blower connects to a circuit board then the board could be bad. Different units use different ways to control the fan. Some use a relay like I mentioned. Some use t ... Ruud UAKA037 Air Conditioner

My thermastate went out and i cant hook up the new one because it is not labled, and i need to know how i figure out what wires need to go to with letters (o/b, y, r, g, w). There is a plug with 10 wires ( there are colored ) that goes from the a/c unit to the thermostate, and seperate red and wite wires going to the thermostate. Also there was 12v power going to the other thermostat. The only thing the new thermostat has for hookups is o/b, y, r, g, w. can you help

I have a Carrier Gas Furnace Model # 395CAV024055ABJA, I works fine if you keep the temp low, like 68, so that it doesnt come on very often, but if you try turning it up and it needs to run for awhile, it wil start this cycle where the flame will kick on and off, the blower is continously running and only blowing cold air, I have tried new batteries in the thermostat on the wall, and have tried putting it on manual heat, no change, another thing is that once it starts this cycle, if you shut it

Purchased a dometic duotherm a/c for rv partially installed it, but conected all the correct wires and it will not turn on. All new unit with new thermostat and control box. the Thermostat requires 7.5v dc to function but the control box is not producing the voltage.

First, my thermostat wouldn't shut off either my heat pump or my furnace (it runs both). Thought it was an issue with the thermostat...got a new one. Worked like a charm for 1 day. Now, there is a clicking noise coming from the heat pump - it did it at first when trying to turn it on....now, when it's warmer, it will turn on, then start to do it. Doesn't seem to be putting out hot air now. Any ideas? The thermostat came with a new box that sits inside the ceiling and it's been replaced, bu

Wiring compressor Replaced defective fan motor on my a/c unit. Old motor had three wires: black, yellow, brown. New generic motor has black, white, brown, brown w/white stripe. This new motor came with a new two terminal capacitor. Old cap. had three terminals. The black and white wires from motor connect across the line voltage and the other two wires connect across the capacitor. After install and trying to run the unit, found that compressor turns on for about two seconds and shuts down, but


The two terminal cap is only for the new fan motor. Connect the compressor wire back where you found it, on the 3 terminal cap. It's the terminal marked, "herm". The "common" terminal on the 3 terminal cap must still be connected to one side of the ... Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner

OK I am a dumb A--. I did not turn the power off to my Payne PG9MAA Condensing Gas Furnace. Also A/C. In my futile attempt at relocating the thermostat. I 1. did not turn off the unit 2. I did not have enough wire so I spliced in a new longer one. 3. Voila' there is absolutely nothing on the thermostat showing power. I used the voltage regulator and put the contacts one on red and the other I went in sequence to all the other wires and it read 11.00 or so volts.. If I changed the (lead) or

Our fan for the intertherm p3ra-024k will not shut off. We have put new wiring from thermostat to unit. He pulled the green wire like the serviceman told him to when he serviced it and it still keeps running. The only way it will shut off if you shut the power off to it. Any Suggestions?


You have a problem with the wiring somewhere it could be in the thermostat. When the service man said pull the green wire off that was the power to the fan. The thermostat should wire up as red to the R terminal on the thermostat this is the 24 vol ... Intertherm P3RA-024K Air Conditioner

Ihave an Intermatic mechanical timer model T104 that runs pool filter equipment. Had problems with the old timer and replaced it with a new timer - wired it exactly like the old timer - one wire at time so I was sure not to mix any wires. Turned it on and everything worked - set the off tripper and waited about 25 mins for it to shut off and it worked great. Set the timer for the on and off and it came on ok but didn't shut off. Have re set it and in came on and I was watching it when it was

I installed a new Honeywell Programable thermostat, When I turned on the AC it turned on the Heater... I followed the wiring but some of it is not making sense... G=Green, Y=Yellow, R=Red, C=Blue, W2=White, Y2=Brown... The problem is that I have an Orange and Black Wire left over, Which one do I connect to W? and do I have the wiring right... my unit is a central Heat & Air, not a heat pump.


Hi, the problem is you have bought the wrong thermostat for the unit if it is not a heat-pump. A heat pump will have W-1, W-2 for heat strips, and Y-2 is for 2nd stage cooling. G is Green for Fan, R is Red for Power, Y is Yellow for cooling, and W wo ... Goodman Air Conditioners

I just moved into a new place and it has the RTH230B thermostat installed. I turned on the furnace, set the thermostat to "Heat" then the fan to "Auto" and used the up and down arrows to set the temp to 72 degrees. The temperature seemed fine for the first hour or so. However, the heat and fan stays on full power and continued to heat at full power well into 80 degrees on the thermostat screen. I could only shut it off by turning off the actual furnace switch. I first tried reducing the temper

Reset button for Ruud Achiever 14 heat pump/AC compressor? My Ac/heat thermostat was blowing fan on and would not turn off. I switched it off at the circuit box, and bought a new thermostat RTH221, wired it and it would not blow cool air when on cool nor warm air when on heat. Called the 800 number for Honeywell and tech said I had wired it correctly, to check outside and see if the compressor was running. It was not. This Ruud unit is only 8years old so I'm wondering if a reset button has

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

I've replaced my very old (mercury) Honeywell thermostat with a new one (round, Model: YCT87K1011), but I can't get it to control the temperature. If I connect the two wires one way, the furnace comes on but won't shut off. If I reverse the wires, the furnace doesn't come on at all. I've actually tried two of these replacement thermostats with the same results. Any suggestions? John
