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.)

Possibly a bad run capacitor, have a service tech test it and replace if it is bad. That clicking you hear is the internal overload in your compressor clicking off on high heat/amp draw and then cooling down and resetting itself.

I'm not getting heat from my unit..

the compressor is controled seperately from the fan, this is done with the thermostat, try turning the thermostat on then of or untill you hear the "click" sound from the thermostat. If the compressor is still not turning on this may be more than you can fix if your not familiar with electrical hvac troubleshoting... more than lilkely the thermostat may be bad, or your compressors starting components are failing...if the compressor is comming on when the unit is turned on you could have a freon leak causing no heat. hope this may help some there is just too much to write on the causes this will give you a start though!!

AC, but no heat

The clicking noise appears to be the igniter. Since it is not getting gas for some reason it will not operate and will shut down. This could be due to the burners being dirty or it could be a bad gas valve or it could be in the electronic mudule. Make sure there is gas coming into the home to the gas valve.Since you hear the igniter operating , for the time being we will assume it is ok. Clean the burners with a wire brush. Make sure they are clean. When reinstalling the burner. Make sure the igniter is directly over one of the burners in the path that the gas will take. This is important. Before attempting any repairs make sure you understand what to do and what not to do. Gas furnaces can be vary dangerous. If this is something you are not absolutely sure you can do. Get a qualified service man to repair and service the unit.You can get a qualified service man right here on this site for your area. I hope I have been of some help to you.

Intertherm E1EH-015HA FURNACE no heat

Sounds like a downflow electric furnace? If so it sounds like you have 15kw worth of electric heat, you might have a defective heating sequencer, witch is what they call a dual on one plate.

Fan keep,s blowing

Your thermostat is calling for blower, your fan relay is stuck, or that model had a time delay blower solid state board on it which had the blower relay on it, and it could be bad. I would turn the power off to all of your system for a few minutes and see if this could make something happen.
