Grounded or shorted compressor. remove power. remove compressor leads and tape off . does breaker stop tripping? if it stays set on, then compressor is gounded or shorted. if it still trips then wiring or condensor fan is shorted or grounded, remove wires there and test same way . the item you disconnect that keeps breaker from tripping is your shorted or grounded item. usually the compressor. time for all new 410 a equipment. r22 is obsolete and out of production next year and equipment, and oils ,and gases dont mix at all. it must be all or nothing. don't invest a big cash repair in something unusable in a few years. good luck.

3 amp fuse blows when call for gas after pilot runs for 30 seconds


check the blower motor for seized of burnt out. Fuses blow because of excess current draw and in this case if the fan is not starting everything will stop. The gas will be set so that if the fan is not running the gas will not be allowed to turn on

Tempstar 2400 blows the a/c breaker when heat is on


How long before the breaker trips?,does the a/c work ok,gas heat or heat pump?,electric strip heat on auxiliary heat,if these are shorted they will trip a breaker,if the breaker trips instantly you have a dead short in the system,if it runs for a while it may be a weak breaker,you may have a bad compressor if it trips fast or a shorted out heat strip,need more info!

I have a E2EB-017HA air handler and I want to change it to a variable speed motor. Is this possible


Some companies do sell a variable speed kit. It includes the motor and controls. Get your model and serial number of your unit and contact your local Payne dealer. The can locate the proper kit if available for you.

I have a 5 ton goodmsn heat pump it only blows cold air the heat doesnt come on have a new heat strip in it but still blows cod air


Heat pumps require a reversing valve for heat operation on the outdoor section, a control signal to a "O" terminal or orange wire is required for heating and cooling depending on the thermostat and out door unit requirements. The thermostat also has to be heat pump type for the system to operate heat for electric system with heat strip, two stage electric heating.

My lennox ecb29 electric heater heats but the blower does not come on and the breaker flips. . It will heat the room if I leave the fan on.


Hi,

Okay... does the blower work or not???

Are you saying that if you turn on the blower first then it will run and the heater will then heat???

If that is the case then I would say that the blower is pulling too much current on the startup and then tripping the breaker if the heater is drawing also...

Try changing the motor capacitor...that may be bad or going bad...

Also you may just have a breaker that is going bad...

Try changing the breaker if changing the capacitor does not help...

My 5 ton Goodman Heat Pump won't go into heat or ac mode. Fan won't turn on. No noise from compressor. System is 1 1/2 yeras old.


Easy: Turn the "fan" switch to on at the thermostat and see if the blower starts. If no start, check breaker at breaker box. Check service disconnect at or near the air handler. With the breaker and/or service disconnect OFF check the 3 or 5 amp fuse inside the top cover in the air handler.
Not so easy: (You must know what you are doing for this part or let an HVAC Tech do it for you) Open thermostat and firmly jump the Y and R terminals to see if you get the compressor to start for no more than 30 seconds. (don't do it more than once.) Jump the G and R terminals to see if you get the blower to start. If so, u have a bad thermostat. If not, check the transformer inside the same cover in air handler for proper voltage. (24V. Make sure you also get 220 on the opposite side of the transformer)
If the blower comes on, but the heat pump doesnt start, open the side cover of the heat pump, with the thermostat on cool, and the temp. setting as low as possible for at least 10 minutes see if the contactor is pulled in. If so, check the capacitor and see if it's blown out. Be super careful these systems operate with 220v and the amperes are enough to kill you if you make a simple mistake.

Every time my heat pump turns on, the blue auxilliary light comes on, and it only blows icy air. I do not want to use that much power, so I turn it back down a few degrees. Now, it is 50 degrees in the...


A heat pump starts losing efficiency below 30F or so. The aux. heat helps the heat pump keep up with heat demand. The Aux heat can be electric heat strips or another type of heat. Check to make sure you have power to whatever type of aux heat you have (breaker not tripped, no overloads tripped). If it is electric heat check the heat strips to make sure they haven't burnt in to. Hope this helps.

Rheem Heat pump 5 ton heat strip 10KW what


I would say this is around 75 amps of draw at max for both the compressor and heat units. . Therefore--at least 90 amp breaker, and probably 100 amps for good measure, and at least #4 or #2 wire to the unit.
