Put the thermostat on heat and set it at about 65 degrees or so and it should do the rest

Why does furnace heat cut back?


You might try checking your return filter. The new filters (pleated 3 month, ie real expensive ones) cut back your air flow 35% from the amount the regular 30 throw away allow. When air flow reduces the temperatur from furnace increases and can cause inadvertant high temperature limits to trip. If you are using a clean return filter, next you need to physically observe the air inlet side of your cooling coil to see if it is blocking air flow due to being dirty. If you have trouble with seeing the inlet, you might need to get a professional to take the air handler apart.

I live in a rented home and my heat is not coming up through the registers, could the filters be clogged, we know nothing about heat pumps. Should we check the filter first, before calling our landlord in...


If it is forced air heat then you should change the filters. Also check to make sure the heater is kicking on. The main heat trunk line should feel warm right by the heater.

4 problems: I am the homes second owner - I


Hi, let me try and help you locate this filter. They put them on the return side of the system. Depending on the size of you're home, you may have up to 3 or more.Normally, they put them in the ceiling to clean the air as it is drawn back to the blower fan motor.Check through out home to see if they are in the ceiling. If not, go to the unit upstairs.If the blower motor is an up flow with motor above, you should be able to see the filter above the motor.If it is a down flow, the filter should be laying below the blower motor.To sum this up, which ever way this motor is blowing the air would be the supply air flow, and the filter will or should be before the air heading out.It should have an arrow showing the direction of the supply air on the blower housing.The return is the air coming back to the heater, where the filter should be located to catch the dirt and start the cycle again.It could have a grill in the wall next to the furnace, or on the face of the furnace it self.Some will be marked on the furnace and will say return filter excess.It could be that the owner before you removed it, and never installed a new one?There will be some way, grill, in furnace for the air to go back to the blower section. Use a good light to look inside.This loud squealing, sounds as though you have a belt drive blower motor that is worn out.They are on split systems, the older ones.That would be the squeal you hear, go to the furnace upstairs, and by removing panels, you will find the belt and more then likely, the filter section.The belt will have a number on it like, 4L330, 4L460, or even A-37 ect.Easy to remove and replace.A direct drive motor has no belt.It also sounds as though this home has a zone control, using hot water that circulates by the use of a water pump in line somewhere in the system so when it calls for heat, this pump starts sending hot water through out different heating zones in this home, more like a commercial system would have.Gas would heat this water, and flow through pipes to VAV boxes in the ceiling, or maybe your supply vents are on the floor, I don't no this. As for the 9 degree difference in the upstairs and down, could be many causes, as the way this heating system is designed, and what type thermostat controls this unit. It will always be warmer upstairs, as you know heat rises, but you can check the way that the duct work has been installed, and see if indeed this is a hot water zone controlled system.You could have dampers in the duct work controlling the amount of air to different parts of the home that may be shut of causing this much of a differential.Take care of the belt, which you can buy at most hardware stores, keep searching for the filter or filters as they are somewhere on the return side, you may hear or feel the air being sucked back to the unit, that is the return side.Find out by looking for a boiler hot water supply if you have a basement, attic and so on.You will be able to solve a lot of these problems by getting familiar with the way this system is set up. I would like to hear back from you on this.Sincerely,

Have a Amana a/c heater central furnace. Model number PGA30R0452A. The a/c part works fine. The heater part does not turn on sometimes. We have to keep turning it on and off to get to work. No matter what...


When you change from cooling to heating the fan will not come on immediately. A solenoid valve is energized (check that it is working) and operates a reverse valve, changing the gas flow in the system. It takes a few minutes for the system to build up sufficient heat and then the fan will come on. The humming sound is very likely coming from the solenoid valve. Make sure the air filters are clean. Obstruction caused by dirty air filter can prevent the air sensor from sensing the return air temperature.

We have a 30+ yr old Ultra-Aire wall heater. The pilot light won't stay lit. We are replacing the pilot generator but it isn't working. What can you tell us about the wiring connections


You need to replace the thermocoupling.
Thats the flame sensor, and they cost around 8 bucks.

If the gas valve does not recieve signal from the sensor that there is flame it shuts down all gas flow.

Carrier weathermaker 8000


Hey Crystakwi, lets find out why with the informations you gave! this got to be a heat pump,-- up flow--you live in a cold climate--probably in the upper United States--! The Heat pump takes the heat out of the air down to 40*, then the auxillary heat kicks in , or you can just turn the thermostat to auxillary heat and it will kick in the back up heater, whethet it be gas heat --oil-- or electric heat to provide the heat from any degrees out side temperatures. Its cool , its just doing it job! Thank-you- very- much!

Laars Lite 2 pool heater will not fire. Pilot is on and I replaced the pressure switch. Had a similar problem at the start of the season but left on for a few hours it finally kicked in.Water pressure in...


I believe that the Laars Lite 2 heaters are a millivolt system . There is a thermopile in the pilot assembly that produces about 500 millivolts DC. This is the power that the gas valve uses to turn on. These pool heaters are notorious for getting resistive connections that restrict the flow of electricity through the circuit. A connection that looses 1/4 volt is no big deal with 110v but in a millivolt system that is half of your power. Start by checking the output of the thermopile then go through the entire circuit and clean every connection with sandpaper. usually this will fix it but if not then you will need to isolate each individual component to find out what is not passing power.
Good Luck,
Chillmaster

Edgestar 12,000 portale air conditioner and heater


There are 3 possibilities beginning with the most likely problem

1) If your heater heats up for a few minutes and then quits, chances are there is a blockage in the air flow, check for dust and grime blocking the air intake coarse filter , airgun blow to clear accumulated dust and otherwise clean the coarse filter .
2) If the heater fan blows but there is no warm air, the heating element needs renewal ( this happens very rarely)
3)If the fan stalls and the heater heats up and the thermostat kicks in, then this will be not be a DIY job. This is least likely as you said the air cooler works.
