Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a 5yo Inertherm Unit in my mobile home, and the Heat unit will not come on. I hear the click in the thermostat, and no signs of burned wiring, but no heat. Was working and just stopped blowing. Could this be in the Capacitor?

Are the filters clean? Is the evap (indoor coil) clean?

If not it will cause a lack of airflow. A lack of air flow can allow the heat stripos to get to hot, causing the temperature limit switch to trip off.

If the fan is turning, then the problem you described is not capacitor related.

You can also turn off the power to the unit and look for any blown fuses.

(small fuses on the control board, or large fuses in the pull disconnect.)

Display works but no heat

Keep in mind that this unit will take a while to heat up. I have the same unit and it can take up to an hour to get really hot. Once up to temperature, you should hear the thermostat cycle on and off. To test it, set the thermostat to a low setting and leave the unit for an hour. It should be warm. If it is not, then the problem is after the thermostat such as a broken heating element wire. If so, it is probably not worth fixing.

Intertherm furnace burner comes on, but blower does not. If I turn thermostat off then back on until it clicks the fan will then come on. It does not do this all of the time, just now and then.

Furnace burner and heat element are not the same. I think the fan time delay, a sensor that turns the fan on when this sensor senses heat, is shot and needs replacing, for a furnace type heat ( gas heat)

99 continental temp gauge not rising

Usually a sign of a faulty thermostat or temp gauge sending unit.
If the engine really is not reaching normal temp you would be burning more fuel.
Assuming the radiator is full of coolant, you could test the sending unit for the gauge, but my money is on a new thermostat.

Unit does not stay on for more than 5 to 8 seconds. I opened the case and inspected the boards. All capacitors appear normal, there are no visibly burned components, No visible signs of heat. Unit worked...

from your suggestion, i think the problem is come from power supply unit, maybe the transformator was burned or damaged that make no power to the board
the other suggeastion is the power supply componen was damaged
try to check it

My programmable thermostat does not work properly. When I attempt to push "temporary hold" and set a temp, it responds sometimes but will not continue to hear the house. OR it does not respond...

you should hear the themostat make a light click when it calls for heat...the hold or as you said temporary hold overides any programming you have and should maintain that temperature you are setting it on indefinetely of until the next programmed cycle... to check and make sure the unit is actually working properly try it again ... actually go after you hold the setting and see if unit is thermostat have a five minute time delay built in so from the time you press hold and raise the temperature above house temp a few degrees start a counter for 5 mins... if the unit does not come on then unplug the unit or reset breakers to heat and try again watching the unit to see if anything this a gas unit or electric unit? if the unit never responds then go to thermostat and remove cover take a small jumper wire and jump out the "r" terminal and the "w"terminal which is power and heat circuit see if it comes on if it does and should immediately as this way bypasses the thermostat operation then you have a faulty t-stat.

Make sure the filter is clean, then could be a dirty, or faulty thermocouple.If you can ,check the thermocouple,or call 2 or 3 companies to see what they charge to check and clean your unit.

Smell of electrical burning.. no more heat in house!

First of all keep this in mind.
You will need to locate the wires that got hot. If you can't or if your not sure, I suggest that you call a service company. If they ok the unit and it catches on fire after wards, their insurances will cover you unit and or home if god forbid it burns. This is to be on the safe side.
Now, this is where I would look. Your element should be on it's on circuit. There should be a disconnect within reach of the air handler. Some are fused and some are not. The wires that got hot enough for you to smell them should show signs of being hot like the plastic will be melted around the wire. You said that the heater was running. Was this the first time you have used it this year? If so, are you sure it was not the dust burning off the elements? They will smell like something burning when you first turn them on each year. Although if your sure you smelled wires getting hot, please continue looking for just that. Keep in mind that the elements have 220 volts coming to them. It comes into the unit and go to a switch or relay. From there the power goes to the elements and then to a neutral. These are the wires you will need to pay the most attention to. Good luck.
