E3 error on LIfesmart heater


Even after replacing thermostat and motherboard offered from company, my heater would trigger e3 error code and shut off. After several (maybe 100!) different attempts to plug in and operate, here is what worked for me!
Depress the power button on the heater while plugging in to wall circuit. Continuously depress power button. It will run through a test cycle and attempt to start. Keep depressing the power button as the heater tries to start, then shuts down with e3 error. While the power button is still depressed, unplug the unit from the wall. When I plug back in the wall the E3 error is gone. Good luck

sounds like that thermostat has reached the end of the road. My advice is to replace the thermostat because its 6yrs old and is worn out due to continued use. programmable t-stats have a wide price range to meet your needs. and the batteries in a thermostat are only for back-up power because the thermostat runs off of a 24volt power supply from the air handler.

Dometic unit cools great but compressor does not cut off when desired temperature is reached. The thermostat is on wall. The fan will cutoff at proper temperature but the compressor keeps humming and...


Hi, as you know the thermostat controls the unit. Here's what you need to do first. Go to your thermostat on the wall, pull off the cover. You are looking for the main control wires that come in from the back to connect to the screw terminals. Don't be afraid of shock as these are millivolt wiring connections.You say the fan shuts off but the compressor keeps running causing it to ice up. You need to get a screw driver and disconnect the wires from this stat. This should cause the compressor, fan, and all to shut down. If it does, you know that your thermostat is faulty and you will need to make your self a drawing on the wire connections, remove the stat, and you can get a new one at a RV sales and parts house.Find your breaker box where your main wiring comes in and shut off the a/c breaker if you like. Now, if the compressor keeps running after you disconnect it from the thermostat, then somewhere from the stat to the controls on the top have a hot wire that is touching somewhere causing the compressor to be energized all of the time. If you can go up top and find where this thermostat wire comes in, look it over good to see if the red is touching the yellow wire some where. I believe you just have a faulty stat at this point. Do what I asked on the stat, disconnect it completely, and we will go from there. You can get back to me by leaving a comment under my user name. Please let me know and we will take care of this problem.

Bryant programmable thermostat will switch on furnace


Turn the power off to the Air handler unit.
Remove the thermostat from the wall, (Just the face part).
Look on the back side of the thermostat and verify that the jumpers are set to electric and not gas, otherwise the fan will not run during heat mode, they come from the factory usually set for gas.
If this is a electric heater this will solve your problem, If it is gas then it will be more detailed. Once you put it back on keep in mind that most thermostats have a 3-5 minute delay so just give it a little time and the fan should then work once you have the jumpers in the correct position.

If you take thermostrat back off and connect the wires together will baseboard heater get hot. If not you may have bad heater. If it gets hot your new tstat may be bad. The way you have it wired is correct. Most line voltage tstats have a ground screw. Your 's may not but will work without one .

LG PTAC acting strange in heat mode


I believe the problem in lies in the dual stage heat mode setup on the thermostat, but the unit going into defrost does make the unit act kinda strange. Even more so than other types of equipment. I would suggest hiring a licensed HVAC service technician if the problem cannot be resolved by yourself.

Outside Fan Problems


TRY CHANGING THE CAP FIRST BUT MOST UNITS ONLY USE THE CAP TO START THE MOTOR NOT TO KEEP IT RUNNING SO IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A BAD CAP AND THATS WHY IT DOESNT START HOWEVER IF IT STOPS RUNNING WITHOUT THE THERMOSTAT TELLING IT TO (OR IN THE MIDDLE OF A CYCLE) THEN YOUR RUN WINDING IN YOUR MOTOR IS GOING BAD YOU CAN REPLACE THIS MOTOR PRETTY EASY AND IF YOU USE AN AFTER MARKET INSTEAD OF AN OEM MOTOR YOU CAN SAVE YOURSELF ALOT OF MONEY. PS BE CAREFULL WHEN CHANGING YOUR CAP BECAUSE EVEN WITH THE POWER OFF IT CAN SHOCK YOU.AFTER SHUTTING THE POWER OFF USE AN INSULATED SCREWDRIVER AND TOUCH IT ACROSS THE POLES AT THE TOP OF THE CAP TO GROUND IT AND REMOVE POTENTIAL ENERGY.

YOU COULD EITHER HAVE A THERMOSTAT PROBLEM OR FAN CONTROL PROBLEM.TURN THE POWER OFF AT THE FURNACE AND TAKE THE THERMOSTAT OFF THE WALL.MAKE SURE YOU MARK THE WIRES SO YOU KNOW HOW TO HOOK IT BACK UP AGAIN.RESTORE POWER TO THE FURNACE.TOUCH THE WIRES THAT WERE HOOKED TO THE R & G TERMINALS ON THE T-STAT TOGETHER AND HOLD THEM THERE.OBSERVE THE OPERATION. WHEN YOU TAKE THEM APART DOES THE BLOWER STOP?TRY IT A FEW TIMES. IF IT CONTINUES TO START AND STOP YOU GOT A BAD T-STAT.JEFF
