2002 dodge stratus v6 4dr sedan. the a/c worked fine but the heater stopped working. had the thermostat & actuator replaced. now the heater works but not the a/c. how do I make the a/c work agai


Used to be vacuum controlled, but now the doors inside the heater/AC suitcase (housing under the dash for the heater and a/c unit) are electrical rheostat controlled, and tend to give problems. These rheostats open and close the doors used to control where hot air and cold air is tunneled to the dash vents. (the hot to cold dial on the dash is a rheostat which controls an electric motor connected to a door, which opens for hot air, and closes for cold air). The rheostat or motor, it controls, has gone bad. Find an independent garage that you like, (NOT the stealership) and the price to fix will be a lot cheaper and more reliable. Good Luck

In terms of products used to heat a reptile's tank, what is the difference between a thermostat and a rheostat?


A rheostat is a dimmer, while a thermostat senses the temperature of your tank and adjusts the temperature accordingly.

Purchased Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan, Midili White 44", Model #71606 with remote from Home Depot. I have 2 switches wired to the lattter with 1 for the fan and the other for the light. Can I install...


Yes, you could, but you want have any way to control the fan speed. Unless, you install a rheostat that is rated for electric motors. A light dimming rheostat is not heavy duty enough, to handle the fan motor without over heating.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

CAN YOU PROVIDE ME WITH A WIRING DIAGRAM AS MY HEATER CONSTANTLY BLOWS THE CIRCUT BREAKER. IT IS 3 YEARS OLD AND THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IT IS HAPPENING MODEL 1102-2


Not much to a heater , you have a rheostat that goes from high to low heat . A coil or maybe two ,one for high heat and the other for low heat . Most of the time though they use just one with different voltage levels contrlled by the rheostat and a thermostat (keeps it from over amping the coils ). So it is one of the three ,I would guess the thermostat especilly if trhe coil is still in one piece. Rheostat you can test with an ohm meter to see if the value changes (Power Off!) and if it does it works. The coil if you have resistance its good (Power Off !) . Unless the resistance is real high then it could be in bad shape . The circut breaker is saving you from a house fire so thnk God for that. If it does it on low heat as well then I would suspect your coil if only on high Its definately your thermostat

We had a new Hunter fan installed today and it works fine but it makes a whining noise. The electrician says it may need a "dehummer" reostat. Was he joking? R.B.Doner


LOL - He was half joking. Not all wall rheostats are designed to work with electric motors and in fact, it could burn up the rheostat. Most home centers have what you need in their electrical dept. To find the right one, look at the specifications in the Owner's Manual, for the amount of amps the fan motor draws at high speed. This will help determine, which rheostat fits your application.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

I need to rewire the hydrator and need diagram to complete the wi


1st -If you don't see how you can hook up 5 wires with 3 caps - you're forgetting the household cord wire.
How to wire it correctly:
This is how mine is wired (same brand perhaps a different mode)l:
1. Connect one side of the household current (big white wire) to the part going into the knob for the temperature control (the rheostat )
Put on one of the twisty plastic caps.
- Now variable current is going into the heating elements.
2. Find the two wires coming out of the heater part.
One carries the juice, the other goes back to complete the circuit.
(Red & black are always IN current - white & blue are always return wires to complete circuits coming OUT of a device)
3. Connect the black motor wire to the red (juice carrying) wire from the heater. (put on a twisty cap) Now you have variable current going INTO the fan.
4. Connect up the rest to the other part of the big white plug to complete all the circuits. (should all be white or blue) Put on a twisty!

You're done. When testing be sure to not let the elements touch the plastic they can melt and stick to it very quickly.
-----------------------------------------
How to bypass the switch if the motor isn't working:
I would NOT recommend doing this for the heater element. You might cause fire.
note: I had to bypass the rheostat for the fan because it was putting out enough current for the motor and the heater.
In that case I only need two twisty caps.

Just hook the motor up directly with the juice going before the rheostat and then the rest of the outgoing circuits to the other return wire of the household electric cord.
Now I vary the temperature but fan will run at a constant rate.

Heater valve is not getting any vacuum


Try removing the vacuum hose at the back of the vacuum pump start the engine and see if you can feel it pulling a vacuum it should **** you're finger in a bit or if you have a vacuum gage hook that up and see what it readsshould be at least 12-15 in vacuum. Also is the heat stuck in defrost mode ?

Rheostat vs. Thermostat Temperature Control


yes, it should work. Just ensure your rheostat will handle up to 1500 watts at reasonable settings. A better approach is a 1500 watt pulse-width modulator circuit that draws little power itself. these are available where power tools are sold (like harborfreight.com and known as speed controllers. I use one for a large air fan in my garage.
