The blend door in the heater box itself is what directs the air to where it needs to go as per selector switch. The heater box is located under the dash.

SOURCE: Air handler only blows air for 3-5 minutes before shut off & not cycling frequently

Sounds like it could be a very weak run capacitor on the blower motor. Run capacitors are sized specifically to the needs of the motor. When a run cap gets weak, the motor trys to compensate for it by drawing more power. More power draw = more heat in the motor, then the motor will overheat and shut off to protect itself. When the motor cools off it will automatically restart and run until it overheats again. Keep in mind that I am a technician that normally diagnoses equipment in a hands on manner. There are many practices and concepts that transcend all air conditioning systems but it is a constantly evolving industry. I live in south eastern WA and I don't see Amana units except as window units. It is possible to have something else causing this problem (faulty thermostat, failing thermal relay(if used), problem with electronic controls(if used)) there are a lot of potential variables

Yup, shortly after I posted this question I was able to find that it was indeed the valve coils. Very easy to get to and replace. Cheap too! Got both of them for about $20 thru www.appliancepartspros.com. Same parts would have cost about $70 thru Sears direct.

Patrick, they are located on the burner unit under the drum in the front left. You can get a diagram of the burner unit by looking up Parts for your model # at Sears.com.

Only tricky thing is you may need to have someone help hold the tumbler in place when you put the belt back on the motor. Personally I found it easier to use two hands to manipulate the belt around the motor and tension bracket and have my wife hold the drum in place rather than to try and balance it myself.

Good luck!

Found the coils. Had to pop off the entire front panel. They were then easily reachable.

Hello, I have a Calvinator A410 unit that I am working on it is a heat pump, I had a leak remove freon and vacummed for around 5 hours. Having a problem charging the unit as a thermo protect on the...


There should be a name plate with the model and serial # which will tell you what the factory charge is for the unit plus 15 to 25 feet of line set. If you weight in the charge you should be pretty close...... In AC mode you should run around 125# suction and about 265 head pressure with 70 degree ambient F. If you have the right charge in the heat pump and you are still running 25# suction pressure in the Air Condition mode then you have a restriction filter drier or TXV locking up..... Did you replace the filter drier when you fixed the leak was the leak on the suction side if so then you definitely need to change the filter drier.

Location of the thermostat in a franklin water. Model F-5 Serial # 974-196


Hello, the model and serial numbers you have given has came up with no results anywhere. But, if this is a electric water heater, you will have 2- heating elements, and one will be the thermostat with a control setting. They will be found on the front face. You should have 2 panel covers that are screwed on. They will be behind the panels, and insulation. If you have a gas heater, the control at the bottom is the thermostat. I hope this has been of help to you.

This sounds like the dryer coils are failing. They tend to fail as they heat up. Here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/gdryertroublevideo.html

I have a frigidaire gas stove model #FGF337AWJ.


I went through that once and believe it or not it was the ignitor. Instead of a thermocouple these new ovens use the amount of current going through the ignitor to prove the flame. Seems like after it gets ot a certain temperature the amps drop off enough to cut out the flame and then it will try to recycle. If it is not that it would be the thermostat but they very seldom go bad. I would reolace the ignitor first I think it will solve your problem.

Want to replace dishwasher panel with stainless steel


I'm not sure if that replacemetn part would work, but I know you can get cheap stainless panels and faux stainless options at applianceart.com. They have colors, textures, seasonal, designs, and stainless steel. You can choose between faux stainless (as seen on HGTV and the Today show) or regular stainless metal. check out www.applianceart.com
