    take the cord back off and go over the instructions again. If still does the not worken put the origonal cord back on and see if it still works with it. If this works maybe a ground problem look for a loose connection on the green wire. The unit may be 220 but the board may require a ground.. Take a VOM and check the power to L1 & L2 OR L1 & N. iF ITS 110 VOLTS YOU MAY HAVE REVERSE POLARITY AT THE WALL PLUG. If its 110v get back to me and I'll explain how to check polarity.

First off, you need to unplug power from the unit before handling anything on it, not just the master switch on the control board. There is still live power being fed to the unit while it is plugged in!
Now, the clicking sound you are hearing is a faulty relay on the control board. You have to replace the control board. The new ones are available from Amana/Goodman Mfg.. You will find, assuming you have more of these, your other units are going to start doing the same thing. It will be the same problem. When they send out the new control board, make sure you program the board. They no longer come pre programmed. It is actually a huge improvement on the older control board upgrades. Hope this helps, I have 140 of these in my hotel, I know them all too well. Let me know if you have any other questions and please rate this as a fix ya.

I just replaced the lamp, but the projector won't power up. It has 2 solid red lights


To resolve the issue, follow these steps:
1. Turn off the master power switch, disconnect the power cord, and then wait a short time.
2. Reconnect the power cord, and then turn on the master power switch. 3. If the previous steps don’t resolve the issue, the lamp might be at the end of its life. (double check that you get a good one lamp, and that are installed correctly)
4. If your projector still doesn’t turn on, turn off the master power switch, disconnect the power cord, and then contact your local repair shop for Fix the Board on the prjector

Amana air and heating unit model # ptc153b50am w/ power cor 37470


Sounds as though the power cord reset switch might be bad and need to be replaced. If not, then there is a short somewhere in the system. Do an ohms test on the switch to determine if it is bad.

You need a new control board. The relays go out on these. If your unit is less than a year old then you should still be under warranty. Unless you did not send in the warranty card, then the company only warrants the unit for 1 year after the mfg. date. You will need to provide the serial and part number to find out from Amana. The new control boards are much better by the way, and worse come to worse, they are only $130. Please let me know if this has helped in any way.
