Did youever find out what was wrong with this? I have a 10yr old Payne unit that is doing the same and after $800 this is still not fixed. We've replaced almost everything. Thx!

Payne AC not working. 1. Thermostat set 68 to AC w/fan on. 2. Breakers and switch near heater are on. 3. Outside unit has 220v but is not running. 4. Fan in heater/Ac unit is not running 5. ...


Dan is this a new system, or has some work on the system (to include the thermostat) been done recently?

Sounds like the thermostat may be wired wrong. From what you describe, the igniter element is coming on, as though you are calling for heating. Do you allow the ignitor to keep going and see if the gas fires off, or are you seeing this and shutting down the system immediately?

If you had the t-stat changed recently, or this is a new system, contact the installing contractor. It may be under warranty.

I have a central air and heat heat uses gas so when the heat is on should the main fan be turning


Typical systems are designed with a thermostatic "fan limit switch" which protrudes into the heater (house air portion of the passages). The "fan limit switch" is mounted to, and protrudes into the duct within the burner section of the heater.

This switch triggers to fan to turn on only after the air in the duct has reached well above ambient temperature. This prevents the fan from coming on too soon and the system blowing cold air, which people don't like.

Depending on system design, installation and current operating conditions, the time delay from main burners on to fan on can be up to a couple of minutes.

This same limit switch, if the temperature goes high enough, will also turn the gas valve off; a fire safety function.

Problem with amana central air conditioner saftey switch


The switch he jumped out was the high pressure cut out switch which tripped because you left the cover on. Sounds as though it did it's job and he cut it out to sell you another. Yes it is important to have as it protects the compressor.

Unit not coming on. air isn't getting cold


First check the breakers for the condensing unit (outside unit) and the disconect outside by the unit (could be a breaker ,a pull off/on switch or fuses)If its ok , you should have 220 ,240 volts to the unit contactor (you'll see it after removing the cover on the condensing unit).When the termostat is in the cold position and the temperature its set is lower than the one inside the house the contactor should be pulled in and give power to the compresor and the fan.But if the termostat is in the cooldest set and the blower inside the house works and the contactor in the condensing unit is not pull in the problem is in the termostat or in the low voltage wire.

Arcoair central heat /air conditioning unit


The blower motor kicks on when there has been a 24 volt control failure.

This usually means that a limit switch has tripped.

Most likely that would be a high temp limit switch or a rollout switch.

First, make sure the filters are clean. and the evap coil is clean. If eaither are dirty/clogged, it will partially block airflow, causing the furnace to overheat, causing the high temp limit to trip.

A rollout switch typically trips for three reasons.
1 flame rollout into the burner compartment due to poor airflow.
2 overheating af teh metal plate the rollout is mounted to, due to dirty, old, rusted components.
3 a bad limit switch.

If your unit has an LED light, count the flashes and it will hepl popint out the problem.
(locate the wiring diagram/flash code list, and correspond the flash count, with the code.)

First, check filters.

Slimline storage heaters with no switch to turn on/off - how do you turn them on? have taken off the front panel but can see no switch/override - the electric cable comes straight from the wall into the...


The principle of electric storage heaters is that they take in electricity at night through a central time switch (normally owned by the electricity supply company and usually not controllable by the user).

There should then be a main switch/ fuse box to control the heater circiuts, check for such a box and that it is switched on (This would normally be sited near the electricity meter).

There should be an isolator switch next to each heater but from what you say this is not the case.

There should be some controls on each storage heater marked INPUT with a dial from 1 to 6 or similar then another marked OUTPUT or BOOST.

When you have ascertained the fuse box is on and the heater controls are set to maximum you then have to wait overnight for the heaters to warm up.
