LImit Switch on AC/Heater Unit for Home

We bought our house about a year ago, and joined the smart AC program with PGE. Our Heater worked fine until after a new thermostat (their smart AC one) was installed. Whether or not, it is linked, I don't know. But now our limit switch on our AC/Heater Unit locks and cold air is blown through our house in the winter time. The only way to stop this from happening until the limit switch can be reset by climbing on the roof to the unit, is to shut off the breaker to it.

My questions is, how hard would this be to fix on our own, and if it would be impossible, how much would a technician run to fix it for us. We know we cannot afford a new heater/AC unit at this time.

Get a diagnostic fee only, then determine if you can fix it yourself or not. Generaly you should only pay around 65. Depends on your service tech, call around. meBNme is on to something check your filters, if the unit is suffering from any air restrictions, it could be going off on high pressure. You could also be overcharged and or overcharged (from a leak).

Why is the dometic hot water heater not heating with 110 ac


This is assuming you have a 110vac unit. Could be breaker tripped in house, or high limit thermostat tripped on water heater, but most likely a burnt out element.

Keypad Chaimberlain 32B2171-1 does not work any more


You can try programming but if it still doesn't work then your keypad is just bad. Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release it and then walk over to your keypad and key in your 4 digit code and press enter.
