SOURCE: weatherking heat pump sounds noisy

Without hearing the "noise" it is difficult to diagnose via internet; however, I can tell you that the 20 degF temperature difference is a good sign.

If the noise is at the outdoor unit, try to determine if it is the casing or something else. Sometimes the casing can rattle and/or vibrate that can cause a sound. Sounds can also come from refrigerant lines rubbing against the casing. Other noise sources at the outdoor unit are the fan motor, fan blade assembly, and compressor. You can remove one of the fan motor wires from the contactor, tape off the end, and start up the unit for a few seconds to see if the noise is still present. Then you can replace the wire and remove the compressor wires from the contactor and repeat the test. This will help you determine where the sound is coming from.
If the sound is coming from your indoor unitl, the most common sources are loose tape, Blower wheel, blower motor, or blower housing. Also look for loose panels.

Without being onsite with toolbox in hand and being able to actually hear the sound, I hope you find this information to be helpful to you moving forward. :-)

Ihave 12 volts going into the ac but no power at the comfort control,


There is/are fuse/s in the Comfort Control. It depends on which model. There are also fuses in the control box in the AC behind a cover in some models. Heat Pumps have fuses on their control board on the outside, under the plastic cover.

Where is the fuse for a comfort zone model cz121b ocillating desk fan?


I've never seen a fan with a replacable fuse. There may be a thermal fuse inside the motor windings.

The comfort air air mattress pump on the model 833 has quit working it will not pump air I plug it in and it will engage the deflator but the air pump won't engage won't inflate the mattress. I check


If you feel like you can handle it you might try opening up the pump case to actually see the problem area. My guess is either the on/off switch is faulty or, if the motor is burned out, it just won't turn. THere may be brushes in the motor that could be replaced but all of this is speculation until you have a look-see.

B zone is only cooling to 49 degrees and leds at L3 and L4 are blinking at 1 second intervals at circuit card on outdoor condensing unit. Is there a service manual available for download?


Hi


The L3 and L4 lights are blinking means that the filter is dirty and obstructed. You’ll need to clean the filter. Also Inspect whether the evaporator air is blocked, remove the blockage. Check the air intake and outlet ducts of the condenser side are obstructed. Check both of the ducts. Check whether the unit is set on dehumidifying mode. Set at cooling mode, Set at low fan speed Re-set the fan speed at high speed and check.

However, if this doesn't help then it might have happened that the compressor is not runing and the connection to the compressor is cut. Please check the wiring diagram on Pg 22 in this manual---

My Ac do not cool enouhg, even it doesnt cool anything, i have my windows close and there is no equipment that produce heat!


Hi Cafe,
Ensure that the the discharge (hot air) is properly routed outside. Take temperature readings of the intake air (room air entering the unit) and the outtake air (cold air coming out of the unit). If the temperature difference is approx 18 to 22 degF, you might need more capacity. I believe your unit is 8,000 BTU. This is considered very small capacity. Not knowing what your situation is, it could be the right size. Below is a link to a site that will allow you to input information regarding the area you are trying to cool. It will calculate the BTU's needed to cool the area.

Noisy air conditioner


Sounds like the motor shaft and/or blower wheel have broke. The best scenario is that the blower wheel has only become loose. Shut the unit off. If you are comfortable using tools then use your manual to show you how to remove the blower assembly. When it is out you will need to check the Allen screw that holds the wheel to the motor shaft. If you are lucky you can just align the screw with the flat side of the shaft and re tighten! If you have the unit out, it should be pretty obvious if there is any other physical damage. Make sure you can spin the unit freely without any other complications before re installing it. Good Luck!
