Question about Amana Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

My Amana 14 was installed in June of 2008. First problem was a loud whinning sound and a circuit being tripped. I called installer and they replaced a VALVE. Now the problem is a loud, loose hum that doesn't stop until I flick the thermostat off.

The breaker keep tripping


When you get a new air-conditioner it should be standard practice to call an electrician and have a designated plug installed with its own breaker that has been calculated with the correct wire size and amperage for the breaker. When you use a common plug that may already have 5 or 10 amps being used on that circuit and you add a 12 or 14 amp appliance to the system you are going to have troubles.

You need a tech. All 14 seer units have an X13 motor which speeds up and down on start up. A tech will adjust your tstat programing. Fan stays on after unit is done cooling to help drain water in cooling and cool off heat strips in heating,

I have a Amana PTAC model PTC123A50AC never had any problems until this a.m. walked into office were installed no heat. Breaker tripped, reset breaker, nothing. Checked outlet, getting power. Any idea's?


To all friends! Whenever you find breaker tripped or fuse blown, it's an indication some device/s are in problem.
To get tripped breaker:
1. Condenser too dusty- clean it.2. Fan motor or compressor grounded-Replace. 3. Compressor high amps due to capacitor weak-replace capacitor. 4. Burnt wire-rectify. 5.Short circuit-rectify.

Where is the reset button on an Amana ASZ14 unit?


I don't think the Amana ASZ14 Heat Pump has a reset switch, but you can still reset it by resetting the power (when it's not running... turn your thermostat OFF first).

To reset the power, locate your circuit breaker box. There should be a double-breaker for the Heat Pump and another double-breaker for the Air Handler. Turn them both off for at least 2-3 minutes. Then flip them back on and turn your thermostat back ON.

You're thermostat may also have a RESET button that you can push. I have to reset mine every time I change the batteries in it.

I have central air (Amana). Is it common to hear a loud surge sound when the unit comes on. It was installed this summer.


Hi, this surge sound that you are hearing is probably the freon moving through the lines on start up, and if this is a heat-pump and not a gas fired heater you have on this central unit, when the reversing valve is energized in either the cooling mode or the heating mode, you will hear a loud surge of freon gas moving the sleeve in the valve to switch it from one posistion to the other.It is rather loud but should only last for a few seconds or so. If it continues to make this sound after start up, it should still be under warranty, so I would call them out before it expires to be sure its not any thing else. I am sure if you have a heat-pump, and you don't have a gas heater, its just the reversing valve shifting over that is making this surging sound as this is the sound they make. Please keep me posted if it gets worse or you are not sure, and please don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind.
Sincerely,

My Amana heat pump model PHD60C02F1 Keeps tripping the circuit breaker


Is this kicking the ground fault on the cord or the breaker. If it trips breaker could be bad breaker. If it trips quickly it is a short in the unit. Russ
