Question about Intertherm P3RA-048K Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Short Cycle I have an Intertherm Model 497580 in a manufactured home. It continually short cycles. The blower will cut on and cut off about every 2 mins. I have had two different "professional" HVAC people come out and it still does the same thing. One replaced what I think was a relay. Small round black disk with two wired. That was $138.00. The other came (twice) and check Tstat adjusted something on it. That was $50.00. It does seem to run longer if the grate and filters are off and it is completely open on the front. Yes it does have brand new clean filters in place. Any suggestions, I can pass on the the repairman. It's getting pretty cold here in Montana!! If not for my pellet stove, it would be too cold. Oh Yeah there is no vent under the Tstat or close enough to blow on it either. It is located on and interior wall and no drafts nearby. ANY Help or suggestion will be greatly appreciated!! Ron Boswell East Helena, Mt. I know listed below is not the correct model etc. but I could not send this without something in there.

    I also have the same problem. The unit will turn on and off before it reaches the correct temp. I don't have any problem with it heating, just staying on without cutting on and off. I have the InterTherm Model M1GC056ABW. I have also had a repair man look at my unit several times, and also changed out what I believe was some type of relay switch at a cost of $130.00, although the problem was not corrected, it did make the unit run longer than before. Now the unit has begun to cut on and off more frequently than before. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It sounds to me like the motor itself is going off on its overload protection. taking the panels off may be allowing it to stay cool a little longer. also it sounds like the first guy replaced some type of temp. sensor.

It sounds like the flame sensor is bad. If thats not the case you may need to replace the control board. You should make sure the flame sensor is directly into the flame.

AO Smith Water heater FPSH50-260 keeps blowing fuses


FPSH series is a power vented residential gas water heater.

1) The blower is plugged into 120Volt outlet. If blower has short, then it will trip breaker.
Blower could be Fasco model 7021-10195, or 7021-10770. Call AO Smith: 1-800-527-1953. They will need model number and serial number located on label on side of tank.

2) Before calling AO Smith, check outlet with circuit analyzer. Outlet must have correct polarity and must be grounded. Unplug cord to water heater and run continuity test from ground prong on electrical plug to manifold tube on gas valve.

3) Also if a fluorescent light fixture is on the same breaker, that can cause burner to short cycle.

4) Connect water heater to different outlet and see if problem continues.

5) AO SmIth has service manuals for the FPSH series that download to your computer:

Do you use 2 cycle or 4cycle oil for mix in shindawai blowers


Not knowing what model blower you have, I do know that Shindaiwa manufactured both two cycle and 4 cycle blowers. In either case, you run the required 50:1 ratio. I would also recommend using the Shindaiwa branded oil since it is formulated to run in their equipment at that ratio.

Other manufacturers have 4 stroke blowers on the market that run "straight" fuel because they have an oil sump for the engine oil, much like a 4 stroke lawnmower. However, that is not the case with Shindaiwa's 4 cycle design which still runs "mixed" fuel.

If your furnace lights and the gas stays on for 8 to 10 seconds, then shuts right back off, then you need to clean your flame sensor with light sand paper or steel wool. You might need a new flame sensor, but most of the time they can be cleaned an will work well after cleaning.

Intertherm Furnace - Blower cycles on and off (varies in length)


Its still hard to say from your info...does it seem that the furnace is running a normal cycle except for the fan???...could be a wiring problem , circuit board/relay problem , or fan control problem....really the make and model of the furnace and age would help ....could be several things....does it heat your house to the correct setting??

My intertherm furnace (old model) has recently getting quite loud and clunky during its heating cycles, sound like the blower maybe??


Your blower motor has several speeds to it and by the problem you are having it sounds as though the blower motor may be going out. The motor has a slower speed for the heating cycle and since you have the noise in the heating mode I suggest having the blower motor changed as soon as possible since it could cause other problems in the heating section of the furnace( possibly burning out the high limit switches). Good Luck on your repairs hope this helped

Furnace Blower cycles on & off


check out the fan switch on the unit and make sure that its the correct one. it should cycloe on @ 120 degrees and cycle off around 100 degrees. Someone may have put in a different one and that is not the approve one.
