Question about Friedrich TwinTemp YM18J34 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Friedrich YM18J34 will not heat

Fan runs when not in "money saver" mode but will not heat. In "money saver' mode, fan does not run and unit does not heat. Unit was purchased in 2003. Unit has functioned fine cooling and heating for 5 years. I was able to get the heat strip to work for a few minutes (smelled the dust collected over summer burning off). However, no heat function works now. When the unit is on "heat", I can hear a barely audible noise in the unit, but the fan is not running.

Sounds like a bad limit switch. Open and test continuity on all limits with power off and at least one wire off one side of each

SOURCE: I have an 8 year

Honestly, repairing and 8 year old AC unit (assuming parts are still available) can cost almost as much as buying a new one. If this is the first time you've had a real problem with it ... You've gotten your monies worth over the past 8 years. But, the decision is yours to make.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a ep08g11b fredrich and on heat it runs all night and when i try to put it on energy saver it blows cold air.


Doesn't this unit only have electric heat, fan and cooling where the energy saver mode is only controlling the cooling? I think it does not do energy saving mode with heat.

Friedrich CP24F30 money saver mode not working


Money saver mode dose not regulate room temperature. All that mode dose cycle fan on and off with the thermostat if in the yes position then fan cuts on and off with the call for cool. if in the no position than fan runs all the time even when cool is not needed. that switch is like the auto/on on a thermostat for central air. the thermostat is what regulates temp in room.

Why does the fan run non stop? the compressor runs and shuts off but the fan just runs on high and low. I have 3 other dehumidifiers that the fan runs only when the compressor runs...why doesnt the...


Depending on the time sequence you have this unit set to run, Fredrich's are designed so that the fan runs almost constantly, to keep the air moving. When it senses a rise in humidity above the level you have it set on, the compressor turns ON and runs until the level of humidity is lowered. This is especially true, if you are operating this unit in continual mode.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Shut the power off to the unit, spin the fan blade to see if it spins freely. If it doesn't spin freely, (there appears to be a little drag when you spin it),the bearings are bad, if it does spin freely, then try moving the motor shaft from side to side if there’s any play in the shaft side to side then the bearings are worn and motor needs replaced. Then, check the capacitor, if it’s bulging even slightly, the capacitor is bad and needs replaced. Most of the time people replace the capacitor if motor seems ok. If capacitor is ok, turn power on to see if the motor is getting the proper voltage, if it is and not trying to run, then the windings are probably open, the motor's bad and needs replaced.

This goldstar air conditioner model is WG2405RY7 It has an energy saver, but the unit just keeps running and won't shut off, everything else works.


Doe's the temp reach the set point? If not then it will run until it doe's. If you set the stat warmer and the fan keeps running after compressor shuts off check to make sure it is in power saver mode. Most AC units keep more even temp when fan is left on.
