Hello, When I set my AC unit to "Heat" and turn it on, the air will come out warm, then after a few hours the air starts to come out cool. To make it warm again I need to set the thermostat to Off position for a few minutes then turn it back to On position then the air comes out warm again. Any idea what could be going on here? thank you!


It sounds like you have a heat pump. When you first turn on the system the heat strips will come on and produce warm heat (referred to as supplemental heat strips), as temperatures rise the heat strips will turn off and the "A" coil will just exchang ... Air Conditioners

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.

Ruud Silhouette II furnace: comes on and runs for as long as it wants, then turns off. Sometimes turns off at pre-set temp, other times just when it wants. May turn on again, behave well for several cycles, or for 20 minutes. When I get too cold, I go out, downstairs, and thump it near the fan. Starts right up, runs for as long as it chooses. Nearly least energy-efficient kind, v. frustrating. Had trouble-shooter out a few years ago, couldn't find anything. An intermittent short?

I have a goodman gsh130361 3 ton heat & air. It was installed 05/05/2008. all seemed well until cold weather, in 2009. The fan turns on and start blowing before the heat box is even warm. The heat set on 70----- when it gets 68 or 69 {in the house} the out side pump kicks in, 10 to 20 seconds later the fan turns on and blows freezing air into the house. the temperture will drop dramatically for the next 1 & 1/2 minute. The box will heat up and then all is well untill the next cycle.

I have a Bryant split system AC that is 18 years old. We have been away all summer (2 1/2 months), during which time the thermostat was set to 80°F. We live in SE Virginia and summer temps are 80's or 90's. We arrived home less than a week ago and turned the thermostat down to 72°F (at all times - we have small children and I am pregnant, so we need the house to be cool 24/7). The system was working fine until this afternoon, when I noticed the house was warming up. The temp had reached 76°

I have an electric furnace and heat pump that will at times blow only cold air during the heating season. I have checked the filter and don't believe that to be a problem. I usually have the temperature set to 74 degrees. When the outdoor temp. is extremely cold the axillary heat indicator will be on and still no heat. I can turn the heat pump off by switching to emergency heat and will get some heat from that but not as warm as I think it should be and even that will at times only blow cool

I have a SC 2210 thermostat. It has worked fine the last 4 years. Last night I woke up uncomfortably warm and realized the display on the thermostat was blank. I switched it to off, then a few minutes later, back to Auto. The display popped back up and found the temp was at 76. I changed the Set temperature back to 71 and went back to bed. When I woke up this morning, cold, the thermostat never kicked on, and the display was blank again. After opening the thermostat and hitting the reset sw

Why does the heating element in my gas furnace keep shutting off before it reaches the desired temp? The fan keeps blowing but the air is cold.

My Ruud furnace used to regulate 1 deg +- the set temp. Now it regulates right at the set temp and the fan cuts off while the burner continues to fire for a minute or so then the fan kicks back on for another few minutes then it kicks off. But now the furnace tends to kick on more often than before when it was regulating +/- 1 deg around the set point. How do I fix this?

When I turn on the heater and set it to the temperature I want, it goes off when it reaches the temperature. It is not merely in standby, it is off. It beeps repeatedly (when it shuts itself off after being on for a few minutes) at odd intervals. I have tried not setting a temperature for it, and it still goes off after a few minutes of being on. When it shuts off, it will not stay on when I try to turn it back on. I just bought it today. I don't see how it could have a clogged filter or anythin

You can set the temp for the unit to come on and it comes on and runs and cools for a few minutes then the compressor cuts off then the fan a little later. After a few minutes it comes back on and does the same thing. It never cools down to the set temp. The coils are wet but not frosting.

Bought this last year, and upon setting it up this year, it won't cool below 73, even though i have set temp at 60. i have tried turning it off at night, opening all the windows to let in 60 degree night air, then closing up house in the morning and setting temp to 60, but temp slowly rises throughout the day to 73 to 81, never getting any cooler - help!


Did you use it at all last year? My first impression is that it's just too small to use for your whole house... If this isn't the case, it may have lost some of it's refrigerant charge since last year, or may need the temp sensors service ... NewAir ACP-1000E Portable Air Conditioner
