The blower is smoking because you have it hooked up to the same wires you've hooked the electric coil to.  That coil runs on 240 volts.  Those wires are typically red and black.  The motor runs on 120.  One of the wires should be shifted to a neutral (white wire).  Assuming the motor is still alive...this will fix it.

Ok. heatpump change out, 17 year old rheem to adp air handler and weather king heatpump 3 ton outdoor. The wiring from the thermostat is killing me in the attic. I got the cooling side to work, and also...


If your heat strips come on with out the fan then you need to change the settings on the tstat for electric heat rather than gas. Or change the setting to where the tstat controls the fan. But, sounds to me like you have your tstat miswired. Did you wire in the reversing valve? Is the valve energized in heating or cooling? Tell me what colors land where at all three locations.

I have a older Intertherm heat pump that has quit heating but still cools alright does anyone have any suggestions what could be wrong??


Check your reversing valve, When you set your thermostat for heat the reversing valve circulates the heated freon through the air handler instead of the cooled freon. The valve is called many things but it reverses the flow of freon See http://www.google.com/images?hl=&q=heat+pump+schematic&rlz=1B3GGGL_enUS329US330&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=univ&ei=npcOTfLEPMO88ga4poDGBQ&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&ct=title&resnum=2&ved=0CC4QsAQwAQ&biw=1024&bih=576 and look at the different schematics

Can somebody help,why is my Central AC blows


Most heat pumps have an auxillary heat. Many are electric auxillary heat with a heat strip in the air handler. A common malfunction is for the electric auxillary heat to operate when the heat pump is set on cool. To confirm this, locate the conductor that runs from the heat sequencer to the connection on the heat strip. You will see this on the top section of the air handler. Use the clamp on part of the amp meter over that wire. If the thermostat is set on cool and the heat strip is drawing amps, it means the heat is coming on while the heat pump is set on cool. There is usually one or two causes for this, either the sequencer is bad or there is low voltage wires usually behind the thermostat or in the air handler closet that are touching that shouldn't be touching.

If this is not the case, if its not a problem of where the heat is coming on with the air conditioner, it could be a case of the reversing valve malfunctioning. The way a heat pump works is it reverses the flow of the refridgerant. For instance, many heat pumps the reversing valve is activated in cool. That would mean that there is a low voltage circuit that activates the reversing valve when the heat pump is in cool. I'm not sure what model/brand your heat pump is, Goodman and Janitrol for instance, the heat pump reversing valve is activated in cool. In any case, if the reversing valve is not operating properly, when the air conditioning is set to cool it will actually be heating. Or you could set it to heat and it may actually be cooling instead of heating. Please check these two items first and if you have any further questions, please let me know. Especially if you know of any additional problems like the evaporater is icing up or if the air handler fan is not operating when it should.
