SOURCE: Air handler only blows air for 3-5 minutes before shut off & not cycling frequently

Sounds like it could be a very weak run capacitor on the blower motor. Run capacitors are sized specifically to the needs of the motor. When a run cap gets weak, the motor trys to compensate for it by drawing more power. More power draw = more heat in the motor, then the motor will overheat and shut off to protect itself. When the motor cools off it will automatically restart and run until it overheats again. Keep in mind that I am a technician that normally diagnoses equipment in a hands on manner. There are many practices and concepts that transcend all air conditioning systems but it is a constantly evolving industry. I live in south eastern WA and I don't see Amana units except as window units. It is possible to have something else causing this problem (faulty thermostat, failing thermal relay(if used), problem with electronic controls(if used)) there are a lot of potential variables

SOURCE: Amana Heat Pump Emergency Heat will not come on

On the heating element [behind the coil, (the springy thing)], at the top end of the element, there is a little thermistor I think it is called. You will have to remove the fan shroud. With the power off, check for continuity if you have a multimeter. If that is the problem (no continuity), you can pick one up at al local heating supply. Just have it soldered back in and reconnect. If the thermistor 's continuity is okay, remove the main board under the control knobs. I have seen these boards burn in the back where the relays are soldered on. If you're really good with a solder you can try to re-solder it. If not, it's about as cheap to buy a new unit as it is to buy the board. Good luck.

Amana Wall unit blows cold air before heating


the unit works by chilling air and the byproduct is heat in the compressor, this is used for heating in the winter and then reversed in summer to blow cold air. It has to blow cold and warm up before it can blow heat.

2002 Buick Rendezvous no heat and over heated after warming it up for over 30 minutes.


Have a pressure test done on your cooling system, you sound like you could have a leak in your system or your system just needs to have the air bled from it. Check your coolant level also, with air in the system and not enough coolant it will blow cold and cause overheating.

My air conditioner starts blowing like a fan before my apartment is cooled off, why does it kick off and on like this?


When you first turn it on the fan runs and after a few minutes the outside unit comes on, once the outside unit comes on it take time for it to cool the coils which cool the house, And a/c does not really cool the air,It removes the heat that is in the air.

Thermostat not registering on auto when below temp set. Have to set fan to on before will blow; can hear pilot light kicking on?


This could actually be a couple of things. When below set temp does the unit turn on (ie produce heat), and the blower just never starts? If that is the case then the air coming from the registars will be cool to cold. This would indicate a problem with the "heating" side of the system. If the air from the registars is cool to warm, then it is a problem with your blower motor. Turning the switch from Auto to On, changes the blower from Low speed (used for heat) to High speed (used in cooling). The first thing to do, is to isolate which side of the system is failing, then troubleshoot from there. Hope this helps

Have an amana central air duelfuel heat system.when aux heat[gas] heats the house and shuts off the fans still blow for 3 to 5 minutes with the last couple of minutes being cold air which cools the...


Change your heating delay to shut off sooner, you can find this in the installation manual. Also the Thermostat may have delay after heat as well. It is true there could be many variables, but it also sounds like the Heatpump is not charged properly, you will have to have a different tech come out and check that. No need to have the installer mess your system up any further. This solution will only correct the auxilary heat, your heat pump on the other hand will require expert skills.

Heat not working or diles


You most likely have an air pocket in the cooling system. The heater core on these vans is much higher than the engine and they can be tough to get all the air out of them.

Make sure the coolant in the radiator is full when engine is cold- also fill the overflow bottle to the top. Chock the rear wheels. Jack up the front of the van as far as you can and support with jack stands. Run the engine until it's warm and then hold the RPMS at 2000 for about 5 minutes while checking for heat inside the cabin. You may hear some funny noises like something is trying to come through the firewall forcefully! That's the air pocket moving... you might not hear this also. Once you have good heat inside, let the engine idle- if the air coming form the vents cools off after a couple minutes, the air is still there- keep doing this until the air is hot coming from the vents at idle for more than a couple minutes. Once you have good heat, turn the engine off and let the engine cool completely- at least a couple hours... you will most likely see the level in the overflow drop dramatically. Lower vehicle and make sure overflow is at COLD FULL mark.

Newer Altimas also had a similar situation in which heat would go away at idle- usually not a problem with an air pocket, but Nissan has a bulletin out on putting the correct concentration of coolant/water in the system- these cars are very sensitive to changes in coolant mixture concentration.

Not cooling


every single component in your cooling unit is needed for it to work, so anything can shut it down. If you could provide more information as to what type of unit you have: is it a central heat and air package unit? or central split system (furnace indoors and condenser outside)? or a wall a/c? Does any part of the system/unit do anything?
