Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

My 3 year old Amana is giving me some serious issues. I have had 5 servicemen over now who haven't been able to fix it. The problem seems to be that after a successful heating, the inducer blower does not turn off. The unit is then unable to fire again. At this point I get the double blink from the control module that translates to "Low fire pressure switch stuck closed" Any Ideas? Help!

    Yes, they replaced all 3 switches :(

    Replacing the control board does seem to be the next step. I don't know why the servicemen didn't suggest this. Thanks!

A service tech "should" eliminate each potential problem part before replacement.
If the problem is intermitent, that can be a challenge.

If its not the the swithc, and three techs have looked at it, I would suspect the board as it is what sends signal to all the switches, and produced the diagnostic codes.

Bad boards can also send false failures to other components.

I'd replace the board.

My 7yr old Amana PTAC unit, Model PTH123B50AJ sometimes works and sometimes not. I had a repair tech check it & he told me the control board was bad and they wanted $440 to fix it. I told him no,


EBay often has the control boards for Amana heat pumps, and installing them is fairly straightforward, provided you have some experience with electronics, a soldering iron, etc. Amanapartsonline.com may also be able to sell you the part, which should run between $50 and $150.

Given, however, that the thermostat is also showing problems, as well as what parts are going for these days, I'd seriously consider upgrading to a new unit and selling the old one on Craigslist to offset the cost a bit. If you can find an HVAC technician, someone who's learning HVAC, someone who just wants it for a guestroom where it need not work perfectly or a landlord who can afford to have a secondhand unit fixed and put it in one of their properties for their tenants to buy your fixable old one for a few hundred dollars and a new one only runs about $700, your upgrade will cost less than having the 7-year-old unit repaired, plus you'll be recycling.

I have an Amana Gas Range inwhich the oven ignites at times and not at other times. Seems to be an intermittant issue. The range is about 12 years old, model #AGS730.


Hello,
That sounds to me like a weak igniter. That is very common for the igniter to work at times if its weak and at other times it wont work at all.
Read this i wrote about that before http://www.fixya.com/support/r9947539-problem_when_gas_oven_ignitor_glows_but

Clicking noise + not cold enough


my Amana did the exact same thing. I had a reparman come out and he fixed it. There are 2 reason for it. It is either the compressor that needs to be replaced (about 300-500 to fix) or the relay for the compressor (around 100 to fix). once it is fixed remember to vacuum the coils from the back of the fridge once a year to extend the life of the compressor.

Amana won't fire, inducer blower constantly runs.


It sounds to me like the pressure switches need replaced or they need removed and shaken upside down to get the condonsation out of them!Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Color issues with Hitachi 60V715


You likely have a problem with your Optical Engine. It is very expensive to replace and should fix the problem. The lamp cannot cause color issues. You may have dust/dirt contamination in the engine and it could be clean by a servicer or technical person. The blue LCD panel or polarizer may have failed in the engine giving you blue and yellow (lack of blue) type symptoms.

F 70 code on the Kenmore elete smartheat HE4


hello Whgispers42,
Huuum At your service!

You said,
We frequently have to start the dryer several times during one load. The dryer will run fine for a while then all the sudden give 3 beeps and then the F 70 code. Sometimes when you go to start the dryer you can press power and the panel will light up for about 3 - 5 seconds and then shut off again, this will happen several times in a row. We have been unable to solve this issue ourselves and are becoming very frustrated since this washer/dryer set are less than a year old. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated. (If we are unable to fix this problem soon, it is likely that the dryer will make a sudden leap from the second floor window to the backyard)


Try this first!!
This is an error code.

This can reset the system.
First unplug the washer and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

If this does not help, you said the machine is not one year old.
All appliances have a 1 -year warranty and the service and parts are free for that first year!
I hope you succeed with my recommendations.
Please contact me with your progress1

Bless You
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING HERE AT FIXYA.COM BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF.

Thank You
