Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?
I turn the thermostat down at night. When I get up in the morning I turn it back up. The heat kicks on for a minute or two then the unit starts blowing colder air. If I turn the thermostat to the OFF position, wait until I hear all blowers stop, then turn it back to the ON position, it will start blowing HOT air again. Some times I have to perform this cycle 3 times to get it to keep blowing hot air. Any ideas as to what is shutting the furnace off?

The heat pump is not working properly. i think the problem is in the switch mechanism. when the heat is on and the thermostat is turned up it blows cold air. sometimes the compressor turns on and off. if you turn the other switch to the off position, then turn the thermostat up then turn it back to heat. it will blow hot air. if you then turn the thermostat down, wait till it turns off, then turn it back up, it will blow room temp air and sometimes the compressor will turn on.
Hi,\012The problem may be the switch, but it sounds more likely that the contactor in the outdoor unit is bad and is not making all of the time...then the compressor will not always run...\012To figure it out you will need to catch it at ... Air Conditioners
I have two heatpumps up and downstairs and two furnaces (piigy back). At times my pump outside freezes up and cold air blows in the house. I was told that I needed a kit to tell my furnace to turn on when it gets to cold for the heat pump. It will cost 400. This is the third time they came out. 1-nothing wrong. 2-New thermostat 3-Need kit. Is this something I can do? Amana Heat Pump RHA36B2A

My panasonic cs-e12hkr airconditioner will only run for approx. 20 mins then always turns off and will not turn back on no matter how hot the room gets. I have the timer turned to off, but it still turns off after a short while every time. I checked for a fault code and got F95, with 18 beeps from the unit. It seems that the timer is set to run for 20 mins and will not alter or turn off. The timer shows 8.00 as a start time and no end time, even when turned to off.
My air-con will run for about 5 mins thens switches off with timer light flashing. i have tried to retrieve the error code but it doesnt work, not sure what Im doing wrong there. I have to reset the air-con for it to switch back on again but still wi ... Panasonic CW-XC243HU Air Conditioner

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. I had service check it out but that day they were here it was in the 80's and it worked fine. I replace the thermostat to make sure that wasn't the problem. 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

When you change from cooling to heating the fan will not come on immediately. A solenoid valve is energized (check that it is working) and operates a reverse valve, changing the gas flow in the system. It takes a few minutes for the system to build u ... Air Conditioners
My Dometic rooftop rv ac runs for approximately 5 minutes. During this time the fan blows cold air. However, after 5 or so minutes, the unit stops completely except for a humming sound. I turned off the thermostat for a few minutes and turned it back on. The same thing happens repeatedly. Do you have any suggestions?

Air conditioning unit not running but fan keeps running even though thermostat is turned to off, auto, and temp set to highest position 90degrees. 3 amp fuse keeps blowing on the circuit board in the blower compartment. I replaced it 3 times then installed a new thermostat. no change. I can usually figure it out if I got a little input or direction. Any help would be deeply appreciated. I would much rather have a trained expert easily repair my hvac unit but I can only call the professionals in
If the fuse is blowing then this is generally indicative of a short in the low voltage wiring, isolate the wires on the thermostat and the unit ends, use an ohmmeter to verify that there is no path for continuity with no wires touching, if there is t ... Air Conditioners

Every time my heat pump turns on, the blue auxilliary light comes on, and it only blows icy air. I do not want to use that much power, so I turn it back down a few degrees. Now, it is 50 degrees in the house. Tonight it will be around 16 degrees outside. How can I get my heat pump to produce warm air?

Fasdfas My Armstrong 80 furnace will work fine for about 10-20 minutes then turns off before reaching desired temperature. I sometimes have been toggling the thermostat set temperature to get the furnace to kick-on. Furnace does blow hot air. Example: My new thermostat reads 62 but is set for 70 degrees. When furnace kicks on, it only stays on for about 10-20 minutes and increases room temp to 65. I already cleaned the flame sensor which didn't seem to make a difference.

AC unit blows cold air in the AM and hot air in the afternoon. Repairman has come out 3 times. 1st time added freon and worked for 1 month, 2nd time he said was compressor, a new compressor was ordered, came back with new compressor and said that is not the problem, added 2 lbs of freon again and it is currently working. He said to call him when it is blowing hot air again so he can see everything when it is blowing hot air.
That is ediculous. He can charge it, leak chk and repair in one trip. I hope he isn't popping you for a service call each time. ... Air Conditioners
I have an old RUUD central AC unit that started blowing hot air. I set the thermostat to off and set the temp gage higher than air temp to turn the unit off and save money, but inside blower unit runs constantly. I'm trying to save money to have it serviced, but noticed my electric bill was higher that last month when the ac was working. The bill was about 4 times higher than the winter when ac is off and the gas heat kicks in. Can the blower running constantly cause this power usage and what is

I have a multifuel stove which runs my central heating system from its back boiler. When it gets really hot there is a loud clicking and knocking sound from the rear of the stove where the thermostatic control is. The noise stops when I turn the electric pump off. How do I fix this please?
That clicking and knocking noise you hear is called cavitation. It's when the bubbles of steam are cooled down rapidly and implode upon themselves. Cavitation is not a good thing to have in a boiler as it can cause dramas. This cavitation is more ... Air Conditioners
Whirlpool 240V ADF18040 18000 btu A/C started shutting itself off. Only way to turn back on is to cycle circuit breaker off-on. Did this 5 or 6 times over the course of 2 or 3 days...now won't work at all. It's not short-cycling the compressor, since it did this even with the thermostat off (warmest position). ???Maybe fan motor capacitor???

I have a problem with my central heat / air unit. As it is getting cold now, I am using the heat. My problem is that I must turn the thermostat to the on position to get the unit to come on. In the auto mode, nothing happens. I can get very cold but not ever kick on until I move the switch to the on position. In the on position it works fine. Thinking that my problem was with the wall thermostat, I replaced that. I do not remember having this problem with the A/C. What should I look for to fix t
Look on your thermostat one switch (for the fan) will say off/on/auto. The other switch (for operation mode) will say off/ac/heat. The switches should be set at fan auto and mode heat. Some have an auto for the heat/ac if that is the case your thermo ... Air Conditioners
Furnace problem I Have a 2005 Montana3295RK with a duo-therm air conditioner,suburban sf35f furnace and a dometic thermostat with remote. The problem lies with the furnace. It will not turn on, and in the rare event it does it will not turn off unless you either pull the fuse, turn the switch to the off position on the furnace or turn the gas off at the tanks.

No heat My 7500 zoneline will not provide heat consistantly. I can unpplug the main power source to the control boards and plug it back in, ,and I will then get heat. If I turn down the thermostat (80 to 70), then turn it back up, I do not get heat again, only cool blower air. Is one of my control boards bad? Thanks.
It sounds like it could be the tstat itself. Unless you use a voltage meter to take some readings it's hard to determine if it is a board. The best thing for you to do is remove the tstat from the system and manually operate it with a jumper wire t ... GE Air Conditioners
