How a Central Air Conditioning System Works
Boiler doesn't fire up.
25 years - amn_howac.jpg


Facts:

  • The typical central air conditioning system is a split system, with an outdoor air conditioning, or "compressor bearing unit" and an indoor coil, which is usually installed on top of the furnace in the home.
  • Using electricity as its power source, the compressor pumps refrigerant through the system to gather heat and moisture from indoors and remove it from the home.
  • Heat and moisture are removed from the home when warm air from inside the home is blown over the cooled indoor coil. The heat in the air transfers to the coil, thereby "cooling" the air.
  • The heat that has transferred to the coil is then "pumped" to the exterior of the home, while the cooled air is pumped back inside, helping to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
  • Central air conditioning can also be provided through a package unit or a heat pump.

Benefits:
  • Indoor comfort during warm weather - Central air conditioning helps keep your home cool and reduces humidity levels.
  • Cleaner air - As your central air conditioning system draws air out of various rooms in the house through return air ducts, the air is pulled through an air filter, which removes airborne particles such as dust and lint. Sophisticated filters may remove microscopic pollutants, as well. The filtered air is then routed to air supply ductwork that carries it back to rooms.
  • Quieter operation - Because the compressor bearing unit is located outside the home, the indoor noise level from its operation is much lower than that of a free-standing air conditioning unit.

    Every air conditioner is equipped with at
    least two motors, the compressor and the fan motor. It is possible
    for the fan motor to be defective and the compressor to be running.
    If this is the case the unit will appear to be running and may even
    sound "normal" but no air is blowing out the front or back of the
    unit. If, after removing the cover of the unit you discover the fan
    blade is very stiff and difficult to rotate, the fan motor should
    be replaced. If the fan blade turns freely the circuit powering the
    fan motor will require electrical troubleshooting. It will be necessary
    to have a qualified technician locate the cause of the problem, which
    may be either a problem with the capacitor,
    the selector switch or the motor itself.

It just needs a cleaning .. I bet it hasn't been serviced in years since you had a leak.

.. just like a car .. you heating equipment needs regular maintenance.

.. get a certified technician to give it a tune-up.


.. the burner assembly needs to be removed and cleaned .. as does the pilot tubing, flame sensor, and heat exchanger.

You could eliminate the boiler thermostat by temporarily removing the two wires from the rear and connecting them together. The thermostat is in series with the live feed to the gas control valve.

Just because you replaced the thermocouple last month doesn't not mean that this is not faulty, can you measure any output voltage from it? Has the nut loosened?

I have a 9610 thermostat turns on and off to frequently


I am guessing but the thermostat is either faulty or is in conflict with another thermostatic device in the system. The room thermostat measures the air temperature in the room but with a modern intelligent boiler there will be other sensors measuring all sorts of things including the water temperature.

Personally I prefer to have thermostatic radiator valves rather than a room or zone thermostat.

Johnson Starley boiler main board fuse blowing


Chances are the fuse on the circuit board is for control circuit protection. Take note of the location of all the thermostat connections on the circuit board and remove them. Do this with the power OFF. Replace the fuse and re establish power. If the fuse did not blow, the problem is in the wiring to or from the thermostat. It could even have the insulation rubbed through and making contact with the side of the boiler or a mouse could have chewed through the insulation causing a short to a metal object.

Once the issue with the thermostat wiring is resolved, reinstall the low voltage connections and you should be good to go.

Is it cost effective to replace draft inducer blower on 22 year old furnace?


Depends on the cost to repair. Probably a 22 year old furnace is not very efficient also. Take every thing into consideration.
If it still works it may work for a while but you don't want a break down in the middle of winter.
