Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

We have an American Standard YCD240B3HAJB that will not ignite on start up every time. When it does it will shut down intermittently. We have tried testing everything we can think of and replaced the board and igniter. If someone has an idea let me know I am at my wits end.

Try using a jumper wire between w and red on the stat subbase. that will take the stat out of the equation , if it has a bad heat anticipator etc. if furnace fires every time and stays on stat is the problem be sure glow ignitor is positioned in the flame after lighting as it proofs flame on some models . also look for a needle like sensor sticking into the flame on some it also proofs flame. you can gently remove and clean with sand cloth and theyll work sometimes but best to replace if to coroded.

Take a look at this YouTube page that explains with good videos what are some of the common problems with heat pump noise. The one that seems dominant is the defrost cycle a heat pump goes thru when it melts ice off the evaporative coils. In defrost cycle, The compressor runs but the cooling fan does not, so you will hear a loud buzzing sound and the unit sounds like it is stalled...because only the compressor is running to generate heat to melt coil ice.

My furnance keeps turning off and I could go to furnance flip switch on and it only last 5 minutes then shuts off again

You may want to check the limit switch or you could have a issue with the gas valve or transformer. I would check the low voltage transformer first, Sometimes I have found that under load the transformer will open ( quit working) and will close after power is removed and it cools down, It indicates a bad internal connection.

The circuit breaker for the outside unit of an American Standard central AC system started tripping and when reset only runs for about 15 minutes before shutting down again. It just started doing this...

It is tripping for one of two reasons. Either the a/c unit is pulling too many amps or the breaker is weak. If you have an amp meter then check the amp draw on you a/c, if it is pulling more than 24 amps then you need to have it serviced. If it is not pulling that many then you have a weak breaker and need to replace it.
