Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

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.

A Nordyne air handler, model B3BV-030K, with 4 wire thermostat. Thermostat and AC works fine in "cool". Switch it to "heat" and nothing happens.No fan, no heat.(I have built in heat strips -resistors). I jumpered (on the nordyne circuit board-input from thermostat) from R to W. (24 volts from R to W, which should start the heater. Nothing. No relay "click" like when AC comes on. If i jumper R to Y, AC comes on ok. Does this sound like a relay gone bad on the circuit board? Or what? If relay bad,

HONEYWELL RTH230B thermostat: we just installed the honeywell rth230b. The fan is working, but it's not turning on the outside unit. We pressed down on the thermostat slightly and it triggered the outside unit on for a split second, but it wouldn't stay on. After reading one of your forums, we disabled the blue wire, and made sure red, green, and white were in correctly. (we don't have yellow). Any ideas?

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

Coleman mobile home furnace Model #7966-756 will not turn on. The pilot light is lit, there is power coming to the step-down transformer inside the furnace. The reset switch is in the right position. It worked fine when i turned it off last spring, just wont start back up now. The blower fan will not even come on when i switch it from the auto position to the on position on the thermostat.

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

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. The thermostats seem to be functional because relays can be heard clearly when changing temperature se

We had a Honeywell 5220D installed by a HVAC company in April. Now my AC runs fine during the day and at night about 10PM the inside fan continues to run the thermostat is not yet at temp and the outside compressor fan does not run until the sun comes up. I have checked to see if it was in economy mode and it is not. The temp inside will warmup 6-8 degrees buy morning and the unit will come back on some time after we have gone to work. any ideas? Thanks Gary [email protected]

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

Turned AC thermostat to Cool today - AC didn't come on. The last time we used AC (March 2009) it worked fine. I can hear the AC Relay Board, inside the trailer, click when switching from Cool/Off & Off/Cool. Any ideas? Thanks.


Just clicking is all your getting from ceiling assembly? No other modes work such as fan, or furnace? If that's the case, check your circuit breakers to make sure it didn't trip. ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

I have installed a UPM model THM101B thermostat on my Intertherm model E3EB-015H electric furnace. I wanted the feature of turning the blower "ON" without the heating elements. I picked up the green 12v for the fan relay. Once the power is restored the furnace comes on even though the temp setting is low and the only way I can turn the furnace off is by disconnecting the green fan relay wire? The jumper has been properly set in the new thermostat for electric furnace operation.Right now I feel t

I have a Goodman Split Air Conditioner and the outside condenser fan was not working. relay tested ok breaker wasnt tripped, then discovered 1 leg of the 220 line was out. Replaced the breaker, cleaned the unit turned it on, cooled the house 2 degrees then it stopped working. Turned the stat off ,pulled the 220 block waited 10 minutes, turned it back on and it is currently running. Can the relay and/or start-run cap behave in this kind of intermitent way ?

I have a goodman gsc13 ac unit about 4 year old. When the temp gets around 90 or above outside the fan on the unit starts but the compressor does not.

Interesting if I turn the unit off at the thermostat and wait 15 minutes and turn it back on it will run fine. But the next time it tries to turn on automaitcally it will just be the fan o

The fan on my central ac will not turn off when I turn off the thermostat - keeps running. I think it is the fan relay possibly? Model is 38CK048 - does anyone know the relay part # and repair manual

Compressor does not run. On turning the AC on, the compressor does not run. The blower fan does though. Checking the relay panel, the relay for the compressor does not engerize. a temporary solution is to put a switch across the contacts the compressor on and then the thermostate is set so that the AC should work, the fan comes on and the unit works as usual. The only exception is that the temperature must be controlled manually.


Hi, if you are energizing the contacts on the contactor, and the compressor runs, the thermostat is faulty. This is what energizes the contactor coil that you have. You need to check to see if you have voltage to the coil on the contactor. You need t ... Coleman Mach 15 Air Conditioner

Our Furnace doesnt seem to be working correct. We an: Air Pro BGM075128 and is Natural Gas. It will turn on when we turn up the thermostat.. but we never get any heat through the vents. There is a switch on the side that is "on" and one that is "fan". If we turn on the "fan" only cold air gets blown through. It looks like this is for cool air. So, if we leave the fan off and the "on" swith on, we get the furnace firing up, but no heat ever comes through the vents. I tested out the thermo
