Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

We have a Dayton Electric thermostat model # 2E215 in our master bath, controlling the under-the-floor, hot water, heating in the room. There's an adjustment under the cover re "cycle time" that goes from essentially 0 to about 1.0 - and a counter-clockwise arrow to adjust from the smaller number to the larger. Our winters here (Vail, CO) can get very cold, and I'm wondering what is the best cycle setting to use keep the temperature as close to the desired temperature in the room. Thank y

Carrier Comfort Zone II Smart Control in one zone frequently cycles unit (every 20-30 minutes) even when temperature in the room does not change significantly and the indicated thermostat temperature does not change at all (stays on 77 for example). Shouldn't the thermostat temperature change at least a degree or two in order for it to turn the unit on or off?? Is there a way to adjust the sensitivity of these controls?

I have a camper with a Dometic rooftop air conditioner. The Model No. appears to be 3310700.012. The thermostat it the type that fully shuts off the unit (compressor and fan) when the set temperature is reached. The problem I am having is that the "dead band" (time between unit shutting off and coming back on) is too long, allowing the camper to become uncomfortably warm. A. Can the band width be adjusted to cause the unit to cycle sooner. Or, better still... B. Can the thermostat switch be bypa

I have a Mastercool 2 speed 1Hp 220 volt cooler with a low voltage Mastercool CC2000B therostat. The problem is the swing time once my house reaches temperature. The swing is only 30 seconds to a minute. Besides the annoyance of the on and off noise, my motor only lasts one season...$$$$ Power bills$$$$ As far as I can tell there isn't any adjustments. My neighbors have the same problem. What can I do about the cycle time? Different brand thermostat....

The room where the vent and thermostat are located is in the middle of a building and has no windows.

We have anintertherm M3RL series downflow condensing furnace in our park model home. When heat is required, the furnace cycles (seems normal) and then as soon as the cycle is complete it imediately cycles again and again until the desired temperature is reached. Each cycle is only a few minutes. Seems to me that it should run until the temperature has reached the desired setting on the thermostat.

My Simple Comfort 2000 worked normally for about 2 years until recently. It was already a part of the house when we purchased it. There are several issues: 1) The "set" Temperature mode remains on constantly. It (inconsistently) will switch to the room temperature or even allow anyone to adjust the temperature. If it remains in the "set" mode it consistently sits at 45. Obviously its not 45 degrees in the home but nevertheless thats what it does. 2)After I sit there and try adjusting the te

Townhouse has an old slide, mercury bulb thermostat. Our furnace is now cycling and the flame only takes a few seconds before it turns off again. Most of the time it just blows cold air.

We have this air conditioner in our sunroom. From the beginning, the temperature set is not maintained. When the unit is set to cool, no matter how high a temperature I select, the unit cuts on approximately every 10-15 minutes, and cools the room to about 66 degrees. When set to heat in the winter, no matter how low a temperature I select, the heat cuts on about every 10-15 minutes, and the room will heat to a much higher temperature than selected. Any idea what the problem is, and how I ca

Temperature regulation GE Zoneline AZC906DAV1. Problem started in summer when I had to set the the thermostat control knob to a higher and higher temperature to prevent over-cooling. I replaced the room thermostat. Now it's winter and I have to set the the control to a lower and lower temperature to prevent overheating. It turned cold here last night (20 F), and I now notice the compressor only runs for a short time (maybe 30 to 60 seconds), then shuts off and just the heat strips are working.

Honeywell Receiver/Valve Model No. RV8310D,E can be operated by switching to a manual mode which will turn the fireplace insert on at level 6 flame hieght (the highest), and top fan speed, no adjustments possible.

We ran it on dehumidify the first 2 years we had it, then moved provinces and it sat outside. Last summer since we live in a dryer climate, we only ran it on AC and only for about a month then it spent another winter outside in our shed.

Haier HWR05XC5 I have a Haier A/C window unit, model mentioned above, and I have lost the remote control. Are you aware of how to manually adjust the temperature on the unit?

Weather King II Acclaim furnace cycles on and off and the house temperature never gets above 67. I've cleaned and sanded soot off of the temperature sensor. I've cleaned all the sensors and vacuumed out the burners and changed the air filter. The burners cut out after about 10 minutes and then the furnace shuts off and then restarts. This occurs for about 4 or 5 times and then it shuts down for about 20 minutes before it starts again. The house never heats up.
