Trying to determine whether I have a bad Ign/Lockout or inducer relay board on Mod 58SXA080-GG. If I shut off heat at t-stat or unplug ign mod. for 10 min. It will usually intiate a heat cycle but I only get inducer blower for 10 sec, no pilot, no spark. Then shuts down. Will not auto retry (normal?), I have to remove power. I do have 24V going to relay board when cycle starts but drops out when motor stops (I assume this is the ign module lock out). I checked the air switch by ohming out while


The inducer blower will put a vacuum on your pressure switch which in turn will tell the board to apply power to the ignitor.

I have a kenmore central air unit model KAC024AK5. Fan started making noise few days ago. I'm still getting cold air. Opened the top grill and the fan is not loose.

How to replace window air conditioner fan motor. Difficult to get at motor shaft on room side of AC to remove fan clip and thus remove motor without destroying styrofoam insulation. Even tougher to reassemble.

I have an old GE Weathertron which still works (except I need a new fan). The unit is about 30 years old, but some goob from Dave's H & AC screwed it up and they had to send a new guy (who apparently had some experience) and he basically spent all day replacing most of the internals for free. The problem is the 18" fan has a bent blade. I can get a new one, but I just can't get the old one off. I removed two hex screws (set screws) from the hub on top, but it still wont budge. Is the hub on top


Use sandpaper to sand the motor shaft.Then,Lots of WD40 on the shaft and hub. Wait for it to penetrate.Then hold the shaft with pliers between the hub and the motor and twist the fan blade right and lft to loosen it.Try and pu ... GE Air Conditioners

My home heating system consists of an ancient (but efficient and flawless) 1924 Richardson steam boiler. It was originally installed to burn coal, but in the 1930s a Honeywell Janitrol natural gas system was installed. This, too, is still working nearly flawlessly, but there is one, minor problem: The 2.5-foot-long bi-metal internal thermostat, which senses whether the pilot is lit (one end sits in the pilot flame) wore out some years ago. I cross-wired the system to make it appear as though

Have an old Rinnai Gas Heater (approximately 30 years old) still working well, but we had to turn off the gas, and now cannot turn it on again. We have two buttons, one below the other, one is red and say On, the other is black. We also have an ignition button at the side. However, we were under the impression that we had to push the red button to get the pilot alight, then hold it there for a few seconds for it to fire up BUT the pilot light does not stay on - just fades away. Can't find

Blower motor stopped, there is a medium-loud ''electric buzz'' sound every minute or so as if trying to start the blower motor. Could be relay switch. Last week, I extracted the entire motor and fan assembly (the one in the bottom of the furnace that drives the air through the house duct system). The motor was pretty filthy, so I took the entire thing apart an blew out all the dust, cleaned up the motor, Zoom oiled the bearing assemblies at each end, put it all back together. Started up and ran


You have a bad "starting capacitor" .. the capacitor is used to get the motor to start in the correct direction .. when its bad the motor doesnt know which way to turn so it just sits there buzzing until it gets hot .. that trips a thermal breaker in ... Bryant Air Conditioners

I have a Sharp Portable air conditioner Model CV-10NH. It will start up and cool and in just a few minutes, it's as if some one thru the switch. It just shuts off and all three lights on front start flashing green one yellow one and red one. The only way I can get it to turn back on is to turn power of and let sit for a few minutes, or kick the reset on the plug end. but it just runs again for a few minutes and shuts down again.

Hi, i am on a pre pay gas meter and when the gas runs out it shuts everything off, which means i have to relight the pilot on my boiler. the ignition won't spark and it takes me ages to get the pilot to light, when it does it stays on. was wondering if it woukd be safe to light pilot with a gas lighter? i know the obvious solution is to have the ignition fixed but can't afford this at the moment, but i don't want to end up blowing my house to bits either, hope you can help.

REPLACED A/C MOTOR ON OUTSIDE CONDENSER. NOW VIBRATING TOO MUCH TO ACTUALLY LET IT RUN. SHAFT SEEMS TO BE 6-6 1/2 LONG.

HOW CAN I GET THIS INSTALLED PROPERLY AND THE MAKE SURE OUTSIDE UNIT IS LEVEL SO i HAVE EVERTHING RIGHT? NO PROBLEM WHITH WIRING.

I have a Marco gas fireplace model# 794019C. It is the millivolt pilot generator type. I first changed the thermopile and cleaned the spark ignitor to get it to light. I have checked continuity and everything checks out. Damper switch opens and closes, burner wall switch is good. When I jump the the redundant gas valve with jumper wire from one of the three terminals it does turn the burner on. Some of the time it is hard to keep pilot light lit, it will trip gas valve when you move from pilot t


Mike, I suspect that the problem you're having is not related to the new Thermoplie (Pilot Generator) you installed. Its with the Thermocouple. The clue was "Some of the time its hard to keep the pilot light lit". The Thermopile controls the opening ... Air Conditioners

Amana PTAC PTH094E35 fan motors seem periodically unable to get fan turning. Have to sometimes remove the cover and manually spin the fan to get it going.


Check capacitor to be sure it's not weak also if after you push start the fan, if it has a chirping sound, it may have a bearing issue in the motor. Note if you are cleaning the units with a pressure cleaner be extra careful so you do NOT get the mot ... Amana PTH094E35 Air Conditioner

I bought a used furnace and when i hooked it all up the green light that says working is flashing instead of staying on constantly. dont know if that is good or bad. but the automatic pilot will not light and i am not getting the fan to turn on or anything. the draft induce motor is warm to the touch after a few minutes so i know that it is trying to work. not sure if that is the correct name of the motor exactly.

Our 7 year old Carrier 58CVX is experiencing an intermittent problem. Occassionally it will just 'hum' and when I go down to the unit and remove the front cover there is a very small motor with a rotor on it just above the gas tubes. All I do is turn the small rotor counterclockwise and it immediately starts and the furnace functions normally. I think there may be a flat spot in the electric motor and when it does end up stopping at that spot it will not start again without assistance. Most o
