Question about Weather King 12AJA6001AH Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Thermostat setting I just bought a new house and I have a heat pump-we live in North Carolina. The name on the thermostat is Braeburn and it is a multi-stage 2 heat/ l cool digital thermostat. We have it set at 68 and when the blower first comes on it blows warm air-however then it switches to cool air. And sometimes cool air comes out first. We have set both stages to 68 and it is in the heat mode. Should the 1st and 2nd setting be different?

What i would do is see if the outside unit is working at all. when you first turn it on the air was warm due to the fact that the temperature inside was cooler than the set point. when it get within 2 degrees the unit shuts off the backup heat and your running on the hp alone. with both stages at the same temp you are running the hp and the electric heater and that can become very expensive. What I would do is make sure that the filters were clean and look at the outside unit and see if it has a red reset button on it, if it does reset it and see if the unit runs. If it doesn't then you need to call a quallified service person out to take care of the problem.

We have 2 furnaces in our house, both on the braeburn 3200 model thermostats.


If you have a dual fuel system - gas/heat pump the heat pump should lock out at around 41 degrees depending on what the outside lockout sensor is set at. It may be that both the heat pump and furnace could be running at the same time if the outside lockout isn't working or there could be a problem with the thermostat. Best bet would be to have a service tech check it out. However if you want to check it out here are the terminals Terminations: R,Y1,Y2,W2,E,G,O,B,L,C. W2, E and B are the heating terminals for 2nd stage heat and emergency heat. First stage heat, compressor Y1 with B (reversing valve on heat pump) energized together. 2nd stage W2 energized for gas or electric heat . No power to Y1 and B when W2 is energized if gas. E can be energized with Y1 and B if you have electric heat or if you switch over to emergency heat, E will be energized.

I have a Braeburn 3200 and when the the temperature reaches the desired heat setting. The furnaces heat will shut off, but the fan will continue to run indefinetly. eventually blowing very cold air up


The fan relay is stuck in the on position. When the temperature drops the heater does not ignite because the fan is already running and ignition is locked out after the heat cycle starts an the fan turns on

I have a braeburn ac,on the thermostat when push down it goes in sec, the up take 30sec or more, put new battery no luck di i need a new1


Sounds like temporary timer application, if you want it stay at that temp ( if it's a programsble Th) if so then set your temp and press hold once then twice to enter into the "permanent hold" configuration. Although it it is a bit of a waste of what the thermostat is capable of it's no worry!

We have a new a/c and the system has heat strips. For a/c. we have had the thermostat set on AC at 72degrees. Now that it is getting colder and may need some heat in the house, do we switch the...


If your thermostat has an emergency heat setting this means you have a heat pump system.
Yes you need to set the thermostat to heat for heating the house.
The emergency heat setting should never be used unless your outside unit is not functioning.
The emergency heat setting overides the heat pump (the outside unit will not be energized).
The emergency heat setting will run the auxillary heat (heat strips) only.
When the thermostat is set in the heat position the heat pump will run to heat your house.
If the heat pump can't keep up (extreme cold) then then the auxillary heat will kick in to augment the heat pump until it satisfies the thermostat settings. If your room temperature gets 2 degrees below your thermostat setpoint, your auxillary heat will kick on. Example, say you are going to be gone a couple of days and you turn your heat down to 60 degrees. When you return and it is 60 degrees in your house, you turn the thermostat up to 70 degrees. Since you are turning the temperature up 2 degrees or more (10 degrees in this case) from the 60 degree room temperature then the heat pump will come on and the auxillary heat strips. The unit will continue heating like this until the temperature in the house gets to 69 degrees and the heat strips will turn off and the heat pump will continue to run until the 70 degree setpoint is reached.
Hope this helps.

I have a new Rheem heat pump. The cooling works fine but won't blow hot air in HEAT setting. I have reset the breakers for heat pump and air handler, changed filters and pulled batteries and reset the...


if this is indeed a heat pump you rthermostat should also have a emergency heat setting does it work on that setting... a heat pump on heat wuns the outside unit and has a recersing valve that changes the refigerant flow ..is the outside runnignduring heat mode... if you turn the thermostat in emergency heat the outside should shut down and indoor heat should come on...of this is not happening you have a wiring issue if both are not working... braeburn thermostats usually have behind the cover dip switches... i am not exactly sure what model this is but if indeed a heat pump the thermostat should have a r,w2,y,e,g,c,o,and b terminal... rheem wiring should be as follows
red to r white to w2 , g=green , yellow to y terminal there should be a wire hooked to the b terminal usually brown sometimes orange on the b terminal that is your reversing valve terminal.
you are going to have to make sure the thermostat is configured to energize the b termianl and will have to go into the installer setup to do this...hopefully you still have the paper work on thermostat... most heat pumps use the o terminal for reversing valve but rheem uses the b terminal
hope this helps out some repost with anymore probs...also make sure the switches are set to electric or gas whatever you have heat pump or not etc. inside thermostat

Heat pump cycling on and off.


It sounds as if you you have a low charge of refrigerant, r22. When the unit comes on outside, the outdoor coils become the lowside, there is a low pressure switch that is tripping out contactor protecting the compressor.
