Re: Maintance

Check for dust buildup on both hot & cold coils, including any filters. Clean as required. Power washing can be used, provided water is kept away from the fan motor & controls. Allow to dry thoroughly before using. Vacuum cleaning is also acceptable. Note than on some units, the hot coil will have dirt buildup on the inside of the coil.

I tried to turn on my air coditioning today for the first time this year and my Totaline Themostat P474-1050 won't turn on. Worked fine during the winter and last summer.

the thermostat is powered by the unit or batteries if batteries they may be dead if the unit you need to check fuses outside at unit or reset breaker outside depending on age of installation

Since you remove the window unit in the Winter and reinstall it in the Summer, as you should. Check the inside of the unit to make sure there's nothing blocking the fan blades. If you stored it in a basement or exterior shed or garage, a Field Mouse may have built a nest in it. Believe me, I've seen stranger things than that happen.

Goodman with 2 thermostats, freezes in summer, no heat in winter

is the system zoned? if so maybe the zoning control board to the damper motor is wired improperly. when a system freezez its because of 1- restricted air flow across coil, (maybe dirty filter) or 2-low refrigerant charge. again could depend on how its zoned.

Clunk noise Ruud Furnace

I had the same problem, the motor shaft and bearings were going bad. There was about 3/16" travel on the shaft that the blower attaches to. I replaced the motor myself and it runs nice and quiet. I have had that noise that you describe for over 8 years, but it got real noisy about a week ago. I talked to the maintance department about it where I work and they said the motor bearings were probably going bad. They were right, I took the motor out of the furnace and they took it to a parts store and got me a new one $270.00 for it. It is a special motor due to the fact that the frame mounts bolt directly onto the motor housing. Make sure if you do this job yourself that you take the motor to the parts store so that they can match it up. The guy at the store told our maintance man if it didn't require the bolt holes in the motor housing it would have been $100.00 cheaper.

I have a Simplicity dehumidifier/humidifier model SHCC6026 by Danby, bought new, used 2 months last summer as a dehumidifier, was emptied and dryed before storing for the winter. On start up this summer,...

I contacted the Danby Co. and found out the unit was still under warranty. They gave me the name of a local repair shop who replaced the float sensor "free of charge".
Thank you for your time and interest. If I have another problem later I will be in touch with you.

After storing away for the winter, unit has no power.

Just a wild guess but maybe it's not warm enough to activate the display?
