Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Amana #PTC153b50AJ ser 0410686783 Customer heard a pop in unit and it went off. Breaker was tripped. Reset breaker and unit runs in a/c mode but does not heat in heat mode. This is not a heat pump but electric heat strips. Unit says there is a manual reset for the heat but we have not located the reset. We turned power off to the unit to reset fault etc and still no heat. The flashing light just blinks once every 4-5 sec. Could use some help in diagnosis Thanks DK

10yr Vulcan Central Heating unit. Had tech come out and said main fan unit was faulty. I replaced myself and still not working. I discovered the O/Temp manual switch had cut off power.

My fridgedaire window unit A/C and heat won't come on. I had replaced an outside light fixture a couple of weeks ago and had turned off the circuit breaker that affected this unit too.

Hi Guys, I work on a mine site and the temperature on my Mitsubishi model MSZ - 25GEVA split air con has been set and I cannot change it via the remote control. In any mode i.e. cool/ heat if you push the temperature buttons nothing happens. The remote works fine ON/ Off/ Fan etc but they've locked the temperature so it can't be changed. Even if I push the reset button the temperature still remains pre set. I'm of the thought that I might need to remove the batteries and hold done specific bu

I have a 10 SEER heat pump about 16 years old, yesterday I notice that the outside unit was making a loud click noise in the heating mode. It's very close to the defrost electrical curcuit board. The unit still was putting out heat inside but decided to turn off the unit and use the emerg. heating. What could that loud clicking sound be? concern, Gilbert


Depending on make and model sounds like a check valve clicking. It can sound like it is coming from that area. You say your unit is 16 years old. Honeywell did servey on unit 10 years and older and found out they loose 25% effeicency after 10 years. ... Air Conditioners

I left the old unit under the house since it seemed to be in good condition. the pump worked fine on ac to start off. But then you had to switch it in heat and back to ac for it to work. So the tech replaced the expansion value and put filters in both lines. I still have to switch it back to heat to get the ac to work. The tech told me that i would have to repla

I have a Tempstar model NFCP3600A1 (style # FCP3600A) ICP Heat Pump. Starting last week, the unit kept heating well over the set temperature. I swapped out the thermostat thinking it went bad, but it still continued heating and the "off" wouldn't work at the new thermostat either. Next, I checked for shorts in the thermostat wires and they seemed OK. I then replaced the TI 26FC-2 circuit board. Once the unit heated the house to the set temp, it continued running up to 75 degrees. "Off" and lowe

Hi - our Siemens RDJ10RF remote thermostat controller fell off the shelf and went off as the batteries came loose.

One of our Fedders AEY12F7F through-wall AC/heater units has stopped heating (AC still works fine). Unit is about 4 years old. I know it has a separate heating coil (it's not a heat pump). Is there a fuse I should check first? (where?). If there isn't, or if that isn't the problem, do I assume the heater component needs replacement? If so, is this something that a skilled handyman could do? Is a manual available? If we need professional help, is someone recommended for the Portland,

I've checked the outside unit using the "test" switch inside on the start relay and the unit will come on, but won't stay running on it's own. When I select HEAT, I wait the necessary five minutes for the un
