Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?
I have a Carrier Weathermaker Infinity furnace model 58MVP100-F-1-20 with 3 zones and Carrier Comfort Zone II programable thermostat.
I recently installed ageothermal heat pump system which includes a hot water coil in the furnace plennum. The heat pump is sized to meet loads except for the coldest days of winter - (below 0 F) - when the gas furnace is expected to kick in.
My problem appears to be the Weathermaker's characteristics don't accommodate the low heat /slow response provided by

You can disconnect the wire attached to w2 on the new stat and that way the stat will be unable to turn on the furnace when you push it more than two degrees above the room temp. if you leave the wire connected to w2 then anytime the stats desired temp is set more than two degrees warmer than the house, the heat pump and the furnace are designed to come on together till the temp approaches two degrees of set point then the furnace shuts down and the pump maintains. this way the pump will do its thing till it gets cold. (below 40 degrees). when that happens you can go to the stat and switch to emergency heat. this will power up only the furnace as soon as there is a first stage call for heat. it will not wait to see what the pump is doing and go to heating with furnace right away. you simply switch back to normal heat setting when temps go back above 40 degrees. the furnace is actually wired to two terminals on the stat. w2 is backup heat terminal you disconnect and the x terminal or aux terminal is energized only when you are switched into emergency heat.

We have a Carrier Heat pump. Today the heat pump and (gas) furnace turned off completely and the thermostat is blank. We've checked the fuses and they seem to be fine and everything else is working well. It's forecast to be in the high 30's over the next few days so having the heat pump/AC working is a necessity. The installer can't get here for 2 more days ( he doesn't work weekends). I don't have any idea what to do. Help - help!
Is the thermostat battery powered or powered by the transformer. If it is powered by the transformer then the transformer may have gone out. Turn the thermostat to off. Use a multimeter to check for 24 vac between R and G on the thermostat. If you do ... Air Conditioners
Dear FixYa Experts, I am a new home owner. I have a Kenmore Air Conditioner (heat pump?, see more details below) with Lincoln Gas Furnace. According to the former owner, the heating system will start heat pump first when the temperature is above -15C and then turn on the gas furnace when the temperature drops below -15C. Recently, when I turn on the heating system, only the gas furnace was always running but not the Kenmore air conditioner. And our average temperature was always above +5C for

I am trouble shooting a Bryant Hi-bred system that uses an air cooled heat pump with high efficiency gas furnace for backup and low ambient operation. How does the system decide whether to use the air cooled heat pump or the gas fired high efficiency furnace. It appears to be outdoor air temperature related, but I can't find the setpoint for it. The main zone Bryant thermostat appears to control the system, but it doesn't always bring the backup heat if the heat pump doesn't function.

I have a Kewanee model#1736 hot water boiler furnance which is gas fired.I had to change the heat pump and the heat pump switch.The heat system is wired through a Webster Heating Contol unit which has three settings,Run,Auto,and Off.Normally when the heat control unit is in the Auto position the furnace and heat pump will start and run automatically until it reaches the desired thermostat temp.

Carrier 58rav gas furnace won't stay lit. Vent assist fan comes on ,burners ignite but just before the main blower comes on the flames go out. then the fan runs for 30 secs then the process starts over again. Usually the 3rd time it stays lit and actually heats the house. I have changed the flame sensor and if i unplug the power for 10 min. it usually works OK for a few days and then starts doing it again.

Hello, I have a Heater/Furnace problem. I have a Carrier 58RAV095-16 Natural Gas Furnace. My furnace keeps restarting it's heating process. Upon turning the heater on, a small fan will engage and run for about 60 seconds, then the fan turns off and the gas engages and the igniter clicks and you hear the gas combust and the flames spew out onto the heating rods(?) and after a minute or so, the big fan will turn on and begin circulating air throughout the house.

I have a gas furnace that was to have a 10acc air conditioner unit installed with it. Instead of the 10acc unit a 10hpr48 heat pump unit was installed, The house is 4 years old and the reversing valve has failed.

Carrier thermostat Hello, My Carrier electronic thermostat is connected to a heat pump. It was set to the COOL position during a summer thunderstorm when the AC suddenly began running no matter what the SET temperature was. It works normally when I change it to the AUTO position. The HEAT and EHEAT positions work normally. I tried cutting power to the unit for 2 days, after which it worked normally even on COOL, but after a short power failure it resumed the problem of running the AC continuo

I put a 3 ton RUDD 15 seer heat pump in my own home,R-410 A. Here is what it is doing. When I get the pressures near where the chart says,such as 150 357 on a 94 degree day I lose all my heat on the hot gas line and my split goes way down. As I remove freon and the pressures go down the hot gas line begins to get hot but then I get alot of bubbles in the sight glass. This thing is really driving me nuts do you have any advice for me.

First, my thermostat wouldn't shut off either my heat pump or my furnace (it runs both). Thought it was an issue with the thermostat...got a new one. Worked like a charm for 1 day. Now, there is a clicking noise coming from the heat pump - it did it at first when trying to turn it on....now, when it's warmer, it will turn on, then start to do it. Doesn't seem to be putting out hot air now. Any ideas? The thermostat came with a new box that sits inside the ceiling and it's been replaced, bu

My Carrier brand gas furnace quits working, so I move the thermostat to 50 degrees, it clicks, then clicks at 70 degrees and starts working again, sometimes for one cycle or sometimes for a day or two. Then it quits again. I replaced the thermostat and it still does this, no change. It appears something in the furnace itself is causing the problem. Also, if I switch the power switch off and on, then the furnace starts working again temporarily.
Yes it is the relay that pulls in that turns the furnace on. Sometimes they get carbon build-up on the contacts. I guess the easiest way to describe how to locate the relay is to have someone operate the thermostat and you listen at the furnace for t ... Air Conditioners

I have a Rheem A/C Heat Pump split with gas backup. The gas unit is mounted in the air flow directly before the A/C HP coil. Should the gas unit be wired as stage two heat, or is it OK to wire it as just aux/EM heat? There is no other heating unit. What is the difference between stage two and aux? Please note that the aux gas heat cannot come on if the heat pump is running or it may hurt the heat pump due to the gas heat units location.
Stage 2 is okay as long as there is a fossil-fuel kit accessory wired in the field control wiring. EM heat would only allow gas furnace operation if the thermostat is set for EMER HT mode.......this is not ideal and not recommended. Dual-Fuel applic ... Air Conditioners
