Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I have purchased a freestanding pellet (biomass) stove and am looking for an installer. However, I also need to convince the Dayton building inspector that it needs to be installed in accordance with ASTM E1509 and UL 1482 and follow NFPA 211 for chimneys, fireplaces, vents and solid burning appliances. He is insisting it is a factory built fireplace and must meet UL 127, and also insists that the exhaust be 10 feet from my property line, as it will belch smoke. I know different. Can anyone help

When we built our home 6 years ago, Airtron installed a Majestic NVBR36RN vented fireplace system. We had to turn our gas off a while back and never thought about the fireplace until now when we wanted to use it and realized the pilot wasn't lit. Airtron no longer installs fireplaces and was no help other than providing the model number they installed. I contacted a Majestic dealer and they showed me how to light the pilot on a model they had (said they weren't familiar with my model number).


It has a panel hidden under the white fiber hearth bricks at the front bottom of the unit. you need to clean the lava rock off of them, pull both of them up, and then you will see the hidden linear cover that allows you to access the valve and light. ... Air Conditioners

Ive got a DESA vented gas fireplace heater Model CD36RN in which I loose the flame after a few minutes of operation. I would re-lite the pilot , turn the gas valve back to the ON position, the flame will come on once again and will go out after a few minutes to an hour. Also Humidity somtimes appears on the glass inside the fireplace. It's about 3-5 years old and Id appreciate any advice. Thanks Bob

We just moved into a house with a Superior UVFC-500 gas fireplace. Our pilot will light and burn but the fireplace burners do not ignite. The blower works. There is a key on the wall that says on/off. The key spins freely in both directions - it does not have a positive stop. There is also a switch on the wall. I took the cover plate off and it looks like it has telephone gauge wire attached to the poles. I tried to test for current with a multimeter but I don't get a reading. I may not

My wife and I just purchased a home built in 1900. It has two separate HVAC systems, with a package unit downstairs, and a traditional compressor/furnace combo in the upper. Most of the windows are in need of replacement as they allow quite the draft. Also, the original hardwoods are not insulated underneath the house. Everything aside, my problem lies with the package unit downstairs. With the unit turned on there is very little heat coming out of the 2 or 3 vents closest to the unit, and no he

I have a 2001 Lincoln Navigator, There is a leak somewhere in the AC, so I understand that's why it no longer blows cold air. What I can't figure out it this. The AC/heater will rarely blow through the vents. I have to be stopped, turn the system off, then press the vent button. As soon as I step on the gas pedal it blows through the defrost again. Also I often get a noise that sounds like a faint horn until I step on the gas. There is a plug I can unplug under the hood to get the noise to
