Question about Amana Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have an AMS9 Amana Heating and Air Conditioning unit that is not working properly. There is no flame and the igniter can't seem to start a flame when it goes through it's sequential iginition retries. The diagnostic LED light code is of a continuous/rapid flash, which the instruction manual attributes the problem to "Polarity of 115 or 24 volt power is reversed." The unit is only 2 and a half years old was working prefectly fine before this issue occurred. The only anomaly that occurred the day the heater stopped working was the power went out of the entire house for about ten minutes - I had thought the heater was working after the power was restored by I could be wrong. Maybe the outage had something to do with this or maybe the igniter is bad? Any ideas on how I could fix this? If this is a polarity issue, what do I need to do to "reverse" it? And if it is an igniter issue, is this something I can replace? thanks, bill

Imperial 40 ignites but does not extend flames into heating tubes. Burns only fron


It sounds like your gas line either is clogged or your heating tubes are clogged up with oil/dirt/gunk? You can blow these out with a small hand held compressor or if you have a small enough brush, you can use that to clean it. The compressor is the quickest way, but have you cleaned this unit at all? Using a fryer boil out and running the fryer will also help clean out your holes, but again, the compressor works best.

How a Central Air Conditioning System Works
amn_howac.jpg


Facts:
  • The typical central air conditioning system is a split system, with an outdoor air conditioning, or "compressor bearing unit" and an indoor coil, which is usually installed on top of the furnace in the home.
  • Using electricity as its power source, the compressor pumps refrigerant through the system to gather heat and moisture from indoors and remove it from the home.
  • Heat and moisture are removed from the home when warm air from inside the home is blown over the cooled indoor coil. The heat in the air transfers to the coil, thereby "cooling" the air.
  • The heat that has transferred to the coil is then "pumped" to the exterior of the home, while the cooled air is pumped back inside, helping to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
  • Central air conditioning can also be provided through a package unit or a heat pump.

Benefits:
  • Indoor comfort during warm weather - Central air conditioning helps keep your home cool and reduces humidity levels.
  • Cleaner air - As your central air conditioning system draws air out of various rooms in the house through return air ducts, the air is pulled through an air filter, which removes airborne particles such as dust and lint. Sophisticated filters may remove microscopic pollutants, as well. The filtered air is then routed to air supply ductwork that carries it back to rooms.
  • Quieter operation - Because the compressor bearing unit is located outside the home, the indoor noise level from its operation is much lower than that of a free-standing air conditioning unit.

Hi,
If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

WAN'T START


Not starting can be a door switch problem. Maybe when you removed the cover, something came unplugged. Flame suddenly stopping can be a sooted or dusty flame sensor. They do go bad, too. See if it can be bypassed for a test ONLY.

Gas dryer not heating properly, burner ignites at start up, then not again


Please provide the brand and model number of your dryer.. However.. you state that your dryer is not heating properly and yet the burner ignites.. If you have a flame after ignition and your dryer is drying slowly, I would be inclined to look at the blower and or vent for restrictions in air flow. The heat generated by the burner will not be optimized in terms of drying clothes if you do not move that air out . Any and all restrictions to normal vent flow will make the dryer less efficient and dry times will be longer. If you are bound an determined to get into the flame sensor and thermostat logic, then please provide a brand and model number..
Hope this helps...

My bosch 21E (infinity style) hot water system has an intermittant fault where the flame does not appear to be able to stay on (or properly light). Once water is started to the unit I can hear the ignitor...


moisture is getting into circuit board, usaully this sealed in a jell which keeps the board protected from any kind off dust,moisture etc which would comprimise the thinking side off the unit. a bosch engineer should be able to do a diagnostics on site.
