I have an Amana RHE30A2B heat pump. I installed a new thermostat, Honeywell, last night and now the coils are not cooling & the unit is blowing hot air. I have double checked all the wiring & everything seems to work as it should. Is there a breaker or fuse on the outside unit that I am not aware of before I call a service man out. We also had an electrical storm last night. It could be a freak thing, but I am still concentrating on the thermostat.


Hello,If you can hear a click or see a light when you turn your thermostat from up to down you do have power there. Or, you can put a meter on your thermostat and see if there is any voltage or not. If not in either case, you can try this ... Amana Air Conditioners

We live in southwest Florida. Our HVAC system consists of a air conditioning system with heating coils when it is cool. Yesterday morning we tried the heat nothing come on. Later in the day I tried the air nothing. I tried turning in just the fan nothing. I just checked the breaker I have power where the wires are connected. I went out to the outside unit and pulled the cover. Pushed in a spring loaded plastic switch the fan on outside unit works and shut off when I released the switch. But noth

I have a duo therm a/c roof top unit that is not cooling properly it has been approx 2 years since the unit has been run I have checked breakers and fuses in breaker box I removed the cover from unit the compressor is running and getting hot the lines are cool but not cold the fan is running I am thinking that the unit is low on freon can some type of self tapping ports be installed to add freon or have ports soldered in place or could there be another underlying problem that can be checked or i


You have a leak in the system that needs repair. If you have to add freon to system there is a leak. You need a service tech to do the repair. If it is out of gas you may to replace it. Leaks do not correct themselves. Russ ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

AC Out. Two year old house. Goodman A/C, two units one for upstairs. Cleaned coils of both outside unit, replaced filters, re-set breakers. Upstairs is cooling. Downstairs unit is running outside, not circulating air inside (inside temp 87). Vents inside are cool to touch, no air. Outside unit fan is pulling, but air exhaust is cool. Compressor ? Should air be circulating even if compressor not functioning. Is there anything in attic exchange that would affect downstairs circulation. Thanks.


Assuming that the 2 systems are isolated, that there isn't any cross over between the systems...It is normal for an air conditioner system, from window unit to central, to be able to circulate the air, even if not cooling. This is known ... Air Conditioners

57915-341G9 AC. unit is tripping the 20amp breaker intermittenly. while unit is running it is pulling between 13 and 17 amps on high cool. then the compressor will drop out pulling 2.5 amps then it will spike up to 39 amps until the breaker pops. reset it and it will work fine sometimes and then start again.


Sounds like the compresser is bad,I have seen a freon overcharge also do this-but it is rare. ... Dometic 57915531 Air Conditioner

Goodman heat pump model CPKJ421B. Tripped breaker for outside unit two weeks ago. Reset breaker, tripped again today. Unit won't run now. Did some basic checks and found that the 28 vac from the inside unit was not going through the low pressure switch to pull in the 220 vac contacter for the compressor. Possibly either the refrigerant is low or the low pressure switch is bad. Could a faulty switch, maybe losing and regaining contact quickly, trip the breaker? Could the refrigerant, just before

Turn the breaker on and remove the cover from the A/C and check for proper voltage coming into the unit. If you don't have it the circuit breaker may be bad. If you do have it, set the thermstat to make the A/C try to come on and check the contactor ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

I'm not sure about the Trane brand, but I'm having a hard time finding Armstrong service information and I was told this was a "Trane" I believe, or possibly a Ruud. I have a "combo pack" 3 ton heat/air unit. It quit working late summer, and I haven't had much time to look at it. It was totally dead, and I checked the main breaker service panel, none tripped, the fuse block on the house, both fuses were good.

Earlier this week, I noticed that the house felt "stuffy" but the thermostat showed everything to be cooling as expected. Last night, the house was definitely warmer than expected when we got home. My husband did some checking and found that the outside unit was running as normal, but there was no cool air coming through the vents inside the house. turning the a/c unit off at the thermostat did NOT turn off the outside unit...was only able to do this at the circuit breaker.

If both fans runs (inside and outside), check if the compresor runs , if does probably the unit is low in freon and needs to be recharged after the freon leak has been fixed (remember this is a seal system and it shouldn't leak), but if the compresso ... Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner

I have a Duo Therm Quick Cool, model 59516331, mounted on a 2001 Dutchman. With the A/C on it cools great but the compressor does not kick out or cycle. The unit runs until it freezes and can't blow air. When I shut the unit off manually from the thermostat the compressor continues to run, the only way to shut it off is to shut the breaker off. I am wondering if it could be the thermostat? I have checked everything I can think of. Any advice for me?

Not Cooling When I checked the unit outside, the fan is blowing cold air. Both, the unit inside and outside are runing well, but air flow in the house is not cooling. I took a look at the breakers, but they are fine as well. Can this be the compressor?


Yes, the compressor might not be running. Possibly a bad run capacitor or maybe burnt wires on the contactor or compressor flags. ... Weather King 10AJA3601AH Air Conditioner

I went outside to the A/C unit, and nothing is moving. I checked the circuit breaker and the exterior fuse box, but nether are tripped. The A/C unit is a Goodman SSX 16 series.

Had a ac tech service central heating unit for the fall. Tech left and I left to do some errands . Now AC unit is not cooling its blowing warm air. I turned the circuit brks off and on inside and outside. I have also checked to see if unit was left on heater. thats not the problem. If I turn theAC on the fan does not turn on outside and there is no sound coming from the unit outside HELP!!! AC was working properly before this.


It may not help but it sounds like the tech took a control wire for the cooling circuit loose at the indoor air handler/furnace so that he could bring the heat on to check it, and forgot to hook it back up. That may not be the case, but if it is it w ... Air Conditioners

My ac unit will not go below 77 degrees. It quit working about 1.5 weeks ago, and I had a service technican come and look at it. He replaced the capacitor and the unit started back up and would cool to 75 degrees (where I usually have it set). He checked the pressure of the unit as well and said that it was fine. However I came back from a trip and the thermostat read 77 degrees even though I have it set on 75, and the temperature will not go any lower. This is the same thing it was doing

Fan would continue running. Any suggestions?
