I am renting an apartment that has 3 Singer Conditioners installed in the exterior walls of the unit. They appear to be at least 30 years old (and may be 40+ years old). The main unit (for heating and cooling all but the 2 bedrooms) broke down. The landlord is out-of-state, so we took care of getting it repaired. It needed a new motor. After the unit was installed with the new motor (and a cleaning), it emitted a foul, unbearable odor. I made the repair company come back and rinse the unit

We installed a Daikin heat pump in June 1996 Model FVY453CBV1 in Dunedin NZ. It stopped and a repairer said the compressor unit is rusted through & recommeneded a new heat pump. I am looking at whether there are alternative solutions and want to check whether it is economical to replace the compressors, or alternatively whether a new external unit can be purchased. Do heat pumps have a life in years? Is it risky to marry a new external unit to the existing internal unit? I appreciate your help
Don't waste your time and money repairing a 15 year old unit you will just create more \015\012headaches for yourself, And a new outdoor unit would not be compatable with your \015\012old indoor head there have been to many changes over t ... Air Conditioners
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

Carrier CNPVP6024ATA I have a 2 yr old unit and was told that the evaporator coil needs to be chemically cleaned at a cost of $292. The unit was installed in new construction, and the technician said it was very dirty with construction dust, etc. and most likely the crew was operating the unit without a filter.

I had a new sears heating unit installed by sears contractors yesterday. Before I purchased the boiler, I was told by sears salesman that I had a maintenance plan that included 24/7 repairs. 6 hours after it was installed, the unit started linking and is still inlinking. Upon calling sears repair, I was told that repair dept. is only opened monday thru friday, 8am to 5 pm. and would have to wait until monday. I was told by a sears answering service that the salesman had lied about 24/7 coverage,
Yes as with all big companies problems with comunications are a pain to say the least. Anyway it sounds like someone left a loose fitting. If you can locate the place where it is leaking there is probably a fitting loose there which you can tighten u ... Air Conditioners
I have a Carrier 58DX080CC Forced air furnace that is leaking water onto the floor, but otherwise works perfectly. A service guy told me I need a new Coil, but it probably wouldn't pay to repair it, and that I should replace it. His quote to replace was about $6K. I found the part, Z7-58DX080CC-91CW at United parts supply for $890. The unit was manufactured in 1988 and is 90% efficient. What should I do? Buy the part and hire somebody to fix it? Buy a new one? The new price he quoted wa

3 new Coleman 47073-879 ac units don't shutoff cleanly. 2 have heat pumps and they change fan speed quickly when starting and stopping. I've never had heat pumps before but find this start and stop sequence annoying. This is a brand new coach so I expect any needed service would be covered by warranty.

I have an old unit approx.11yrs old.When turn on for heat,kicks my breakers off. It runs for about 1/2 hr. before shutting off. Tried running the emergency heat bu t, it continues to kick the breakers off within 1/2 hr. Were can I find parts for this unit, I just need to get through the winter. I will be leaving this home come the spring. I do not want to spend the money on a new system for a home I will not continue to live in.
Well, obviously your furnace is overloading the breaker it is on. Try this, turn off the breaker that the furnace is on and go through your house to make sure everything else still works. Furnaces are large power users and should preferably be on t ... Amana Air Conditioners
Hello, my heat pump is a 4 ton unit, it heats ok but it keeps tripping one of the breakers, the 40 amp cooling breaker. I have put a new thermostate, it keeps running after the breaker is tripped and the outside unit is off. I am thinking the breaker could be bad the other two breaker are 60 amp. do all three need to be 60 amp. Thanks
Hello Jack, \015\012\015\012Let me see if I have this right. Your heat pump keeps triping the breaker that is going to your airhandler. The Heatpump is on its on breaker and can not trip the breaker on your air-handler. However, the 40 am ... Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner

Have a bristol compressor fitted to a prototype air con unit designed for military application, been through a TUV vibration test and failed due to pipework failing, pipework repaired, pressure tested, vacumed out, gas introduced but suction and discharge pressure the same, compressor runs but seems noisier than sister unit and gets warm very quick, replace with new compressor ?
Please check your compressor pumping. How to check?Keep pressure gauge in discharge pipe and also keep open suction pipe, test run. It builds the pressure up to 300 psi or slightly more than that. If it's less than 275psi, it's defective ... Air Conditioners
The refrigerant from my outside althema unit leaked out completely and my underfloor heating is no longer functioning. The unit was accidentally punctured when attempting to remove ice which develops in very frosty weather from the base of the unit. Does this mean the entire unit will need to be replaced, is this a major job and does a replacement unit come with refrigerant already installed? IS this an expensive repair? I am in ireland
Before giving solution, my humble advise not to try to remove ice by harmer or any tools. With help of heat torch you can remove. Now the solution is :No need to replace complete set. Yes little costly expensive. Call repairman, he will arrest ... Air Conditioners

There must be a thermostat that is interchangeable. I have the coach for sale and this is holding it up. Please answer asap.
