Zoneline Airconditioning - Winterizing and drain line

I have recently installed a Zoneline GE airconditioner in a room addition. The cool and heat model 2900 has a grill on the outside of the room. In the winter time I intend to use the unit to heat the room. Does it heat the air inside the room or does it pull in air from the outside?

should I wrap the outside of the unit to protect it from the winter elements and to stop drafts.

There is a drip line kit. Without this I assume that the water from the air conditioner will run out the back and onto the ground? It will not leak back into the room or the wall of the room?

Sincerely, Dave Burke.

Yes this will recycle the room and can be cover outside if it is not a heat pump and will use elec heat strips to heat. As long as it is tilled toward the back the water will run out the back without a drain kit there should also be a drain hole in the bottom.

Why is there a ***** smell?


I worked extensively on GE Zoneline AZ Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps while a Maintenance Superintendent at a Senior Citizen's Apartment Complex. Not knowing what type of smell to which you are referring, I can assure you that other than "burnt electrical" smells, the only smell that could possibly be produced would be that from within the INDOOR SPACE. Perhaps something has made its way into the INDOOR AIR FILTER? Perhaps that INDOOR AIR FILTER needs to be cleaned. To clean the INDOOR AIR FILTER, simply lift both of the filters from the front cover, take to your clean bath tub. Run EXTREMELY HOT WATER from the back of the filter to the front of the filter. Then, fill your bathtub 1/4 way with EXTREMELY HOT WATER. Add 1 cup of Hydrogen Peroxide and 1 cup of Real Lemon Juice. Set both filters in this solution for 30 minutes; then rinse with clear water. Set filters up to dry for at least 2 hours in the sun or an air breeze. Replace filters into the GE Zoneline.

Also, not knowing how OLD your GE Zoneline system is, the COILS may need to be cleaned. To do this, simply turn OFF your GE Zoneline unit and remove the front COVER of the unit. Next, mix in a spray bottle 4 packets of LEMON flavored KOOL-AID (without SUGAR) and water. Shake well. Spray the INDOOR COILS of your GE Zoneline unit with the entire contents of this mixture. Let set for at least 10 minutes. Then turn your GE Zoneline to the COOL position. The citric acid in the lemon kool-aid will be forced through the coils to continue to remove any dirt, dust, debris and effectively CLEAN those coils. This will also provide you a LEMONLY odor within your room. Simple and cheap.

Enjoy your GE Zoneline unit.

I have an airconditioner a Kelvinator KSR20C Split system


Your condensor fan motor has more than likely gone out. This fan should run at all times when the unit is on. Since the fan isn't working then the motor must have gone out.

GE Room Heat/Cool unit will not heat with heat pump


If it was me I would cnage the sensor first. Simply because it is way cheaper than the control board and these sensors are fickle as hell to begin with.

Ptec allways draines water back in to room pisspoor design


This is most likely due to the installation. The unit should have at least 1/4 inch slope towards the outside to provide for proper drainage. If it is sloped towards the inside, that's where the water will go. To check, take the unit out of the sleeve and place a level on the inside bottom of the sleeve, and check the slope. If its flat or sloping towards the inside, the sleeve will need to be removed and re-installed.

How to best run this thing


Hi Laurelrobin,
When the unit is on "low fan", it is fan only, and is recirculating room air. If the damper is open, it can also bring in outside air. If the space is not occupied for extended periods, it's OK to turn the unit "OFF", as long as you have a newer unit with Heat Sentinel, and the Heat Sentinel is turned on. Heat Sentinel will not let the room temp get above 85F, as long as the unit is OFF. Also, in most cases it's best to keep the damper closed. You can check your owner's manual for more info on the Heat Sentinel and other auxiliary functions. I also have an article on the temperature limiting functions of the GE Zoneline.

Feel free to contact me at greg.mcnary(at)airdistributors.com if you need further info.

Problem with GE Zoneline 5200 model


Heat pumps have saftey circuits that prevent liquid flooding of the compressor. Inadequate airflow across the evaporator in cooling can trip this circuit. Have your package unit serviced with particular attention to cleaning the evaporator coil and be sure your filters are clean and changed frequently in the summer months. Hope this helps GL!

Temperature varies 13 degrees around setpoint on aux heat


I don't have the book for this particular unit but, check the sequencers that control the electric heat mode, as the regulator heat pump works good. The part may have a time or temperature delay that is too long for you. Also if it has a remote thermostat, check the heat anticipate setting. You will have to check the installation manuel, but its usually .6 to .8, but I don't think that is the problem.
