Flame roll out protection device just started tripping a couple of days ago. Can be reset and unit runs for 10-12 hours and device trips again. 14 year old furnace and this just started happening. Anything i can do until the repair technician comes?

    Thanks. Is a cracked heat exchanger is the only possibility? The flames seem to be coming out of the burners more aggressively than in the past, hitting the manifold structure and rolling up the outside of the manifold at times. No chance a minor adjustment could pull back on the flames and solve the problem? I may be in denial, but what the heck.

No, heat exchanger is most likely cracked. Time for a new furnace. I cannot see your reply due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

    Unless your gas pressure is too high from a bad regulator I really cannot think of anything you could do. If bad regulator then otherb gas products you have would be acting up too.

What is causing RCD to trip repeatedly?


RCD is a safety device and is meant to trip if it sees a ground fault or phase to phase fault and protecting you from a shock sounds like you have a heater problem or a fan,if unit runs for hours with no trip then heater, if trip a few minuets then fan ,the only way to find it is to mega ohm each part with in the unit.

I HAVE A FEDDERS AIR CONDITIONER MODEL AED24E7F-C THIS UNIT TRIPS THE RESET BUTTON ONCE IN A GREAT WHILE IT RUNS FOR HOURS OR DAYS ON END AND THEN TRIPS. IT TAKE AWHILE AFTER THAT BEFORE I CAN RESET...


The reset button is part of the cord. The cord has built in arc detection. This is a complex circuit that monitors the unit and senses potentially dangerous sparks or arcing inside the internal components of the A/C (motors, switches, etc.) It sounds like the problem is getting worse - as they usually do. Sparking and arcing happen when dirt, corrosion, etc. accumulates and can result in pitted contacts. All of these conditions only make the sparks and arcs worse. Page 1 of the manual (left column) says this:

If the Arc Detection Device has tripped, the
reset button will pop up.


Follow these steps to reset the Arc Detection
Device:


1. Unplug unit from electrical outlet
2. Press the reset button
3. Plug the unit back into electrical outlet
4. Check to see if power has returned to the unit

Testing


You should test the Arc Detection Device
equipped power cord monthly, after every major
electrical storm, or if power to your Room Air
Conditioner has been interrupted.

Follow these steps to test the Arc Detection
Device:


1. Unplug unit from electrical outlet
2. Press the reset button
3. Plug the unit back into electrical outlet
4. Press test button. Unit should trip and reset
button will pop up.
5. Press reset button again for use
If above test fails, stop using the air
conditioner and contact customer service by
calling the following toll-free number:
1-800-332-6658 or email:
customerservice@fedders.com

I hope this helps & good luck!

It runs for a few minnuts and stops. the reset button pops out. i reset and it runs again for a few minnuts and stops


If this reset is a flame saftey reset, either the bimetal
disc is getting weak or you have a problem with the heat exchanger or your venting system. The cause
of a flame rollout switch being tripped would be the flame rolling back out of the burners.

Both inside and outside units did not come on in cool mode


hi there,
thermostat located on your evaporator is adevice where in if temperature set up is acquired the power source will cut off until on specific time that when small heat absorbed thermostat will activate again or this auto activated.meaning there is a differtianl temperature acquited to run this device.this depent how you set up your temperature setting.the over load protection device located mostly on control panel is one tripping off.this is the device you have to reset in order to run the unit again if malfunction., if short circuited or highr current occured on compressor this device protect your motor to burn it will trip off your unit.several factors you can consider in tripping unit,fan motor not running,dirty evaporator and condenser,loosen wiring connection and faulty wiring.sometimes circuit on panel board are envaded by insect mostly ants they need heat for there egg to hatch, they davastated the circuit.check on this.have a nice day don't forgert to rate me thank's.

15 amp Gould breaker trips every 24 to 48 hours


As seemingly with everything else, these devices were once very reliable but now fail early in life.
Assuming that this is no GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) equipped breaker, you must  have a bad one. If it is, you may have some stray currents tripping the breaker.
While finishing up on our new home and putting breakers in the main box for the first time, one brand new breaker refused to stay set even though the circuit was OK and no loads on that branch connected at all. In the two years we have been here, we had to replace a second one acting just as you describe.

Flame backlash


The burners have an adjustable vent in the front that may have been moved. Also the vent pipe may be inadequate, that is why the roll out switch that you by-passed tripped. If you replace the switch that was by-passed I bet the over flaming stops,as the gas will quit overflowing. Most of these switches have a little reset button on them so look at it next time before you by-pass the wires.
