Question about Heating & Cooling
A. You can write or all a York authorized dealer or The YORK plant itself , theres one one the east coast in Pa, near philly or go internet to find the nearest service place or dealership and ask them f the could send you new manuals . as a certified york representative and former York HVAC installer and member of the pennsylvannia heat pump association. I can say I have not seen many of those old seling jobs their usually in bars combined with smoke eaters and air cleaners ( electric ) so tell mr. fix it to be warry of anything that looks like screens or raxorwie in there or it will blow him right off his ladder if they are activated 220 smoke eaters or aircleaners .
but since the have remotes Id say they probably arent that old. Id get the model and serial #'s of them and try to call a dealership and tell them what you need. it kind of sounds like you have an issue with these "timers' you mentioned. they could be on their way out as in dying... or since somethin like that is usually mounted on a wall instead of on the unit itself so , I may be suspecting they arent timers really at all . if thee are no outdoor condensors for these things it means they are self ontained and probably water cooled or a fan somehow must cool the refriegerant off and blow over the hot condensor .if its just an ac unit or if its a heat pump it would blow cold air over the coil in order to cool off the bloing ot gases in heat mode once the reversing alve opens. I doubt there heat pumps. just staright ac.
now the thing that comes to my mind about these timers. is that usually they woul die after a few weks are you exactly sure they are TIMERS ?? they could be for heat pumps to set them in defrost mode. what Im thinking now this is wthout seing them isthat they are hi and lo limit pressure switches on the ac units themselves and if he turned the limits down and they an better for a while it could be they need to be charged with refridgerant . they way you could tel that is if there are small bras or copper coils or tubes coming out of them connecting to the compressors or to the evaporator coils. which sense the units specific pressure they need to run at top efficency. if he is monkeying around with those limit switches he may already have killed them . but older equipment is fairly durable so I would try and determing the make and model and ask one of the places I mentioned to try to get manuals. Ive mounted an aful lot of sanyo wall mounted units but only a few in celings.
tell you husband to get a flashlite and find those number and write the make and modl of these old yorks , they were very well made back them and could take on hell of a beating , like running them with very little refrgerant in them.
first off is there going to say of we stopped making them and we call sell you new ones for x amonut of $. but Im not a big fan of the new stuff. with puron refrgerant in it.
tell the hubby to look around the compression fiting in which the gas tarvels thru for oil spots which is surely a clearsign up the refridgerant leaking out there. they also have an invetion called a tiff which can search out refridgerant leaks and they can be fied hopefully. dont let them talk yoy nto going into a conversion kit to change them into the new puron gases . if its a matter o a refridgerant loss get some kid who isnt a stickler fo the law and have him put in the refridgeant of the old variety. it should be on the plate, and have him ue that stuff the older refridgerants are better use less electric making cool air . its proebly r-22or r-500 ue them and shhhhushh.... they will out live you. now that only if its a leak othrwisethese controls are usually down where adjst them without taking the celing down.
let me know what you findout. I dont have my pay pal acconut set up yet so this is a feebie...lol tom.m. please excuse my typing and spelling iM tied and must go lie down.
