Question about Coleman Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Heat cycles off too often

When the heat is on, it blows plenty warm. Good airflow. However, after being on for a few (30-60) seconds, the heat will cycle off and the unit will just start blowing cold air until the heat unit kicks back on.

SOURCE: reverse unit. Heater only blows air, not warm air

If you have a reverse cycle unit (heat pump) your compressor and your fan should be running. You need to determine if your compressor is running.

FIRST YOUR OUTSIDE UNIT PROVIDES HEAT BY USING A REVERSING VALVE TO CHANGE THE REFRIGERANT FLOW.THERE IS NO HEAT STRIPS OUTSIDE SECOND YOUR EMERGENCY HEAT TURNS ON ELECTRIC ELEMENTS INSIDE YOUR AIRHANDLER UNIT.IT SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE HAS WIRED YOUR UNIT WRONG OR HAS THE THERMOSTAT SET IMPROPERLY.WHEN THE HEAT PUMP CANNOT SATTISFY THE SETPOINT THE THERMOSTAT IS SUPPOSED TO TURN ON YOUR ELEC. HEAT UNTILL THE LOAD HAS BEEN REACHED AND THE HEAT PUMP CAN CONTINUE TO MAINTAIN IT.

SOURCE: Electric furnace blows cold air before and after warm air.

It is normal. Your house has to go down a couple more degrees because the heat pump is not working. You can solve this by rewirng you thermostat. Take off the wire that goes to Y and tape off. Then take the wires that are marked w and e or w1 and put the wires to yellow. Do not run ac with it wired like this. If you need more information please post me back

SOURCE: my heat pump blows cold air for the first 10 minutes or so

Don't know how long you have had a heat pump but thats the nature of them in colder weather. Some people prefer to switch to "emergency heat" on the t-stat when temps fall below 20 or 25 degrees. This bypasses the heat pump and allows your back-up heat to heat the house. If your house is total electric your emergency heat is an electric furnace and it should handle the load if it was sized properly. Don't leave it on emergency when it warms up because your heat pump is much cheaper to operate than the furnace. As always, check your air filter since it can restrict the amount of air that moves thru the furnace, which is critical. Hope this helps

I get code E6 and my Maytag dryer keeps stopping


BAD MOTOR WINDINGS OR DRYER OVERHEATING:

Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

Gas dryer wont stay lit


I'm assuming it "starts" to heat but then cuts off. Usually after the first minute of running you can open dryer door and feel heat but after awhile it doesn't heat.

1st, most common problem on a gas dryer not heating is "airflow" . They will "short-cycle" if there isn't near perfect airflow. Turn dryer on and go to outside exhaust vent. It should blow about as hard as you can blow into your hand. If any doubt disconnect dryer vent line from wall and let blow into your laundry room for one cycle and see if it is now working correctly. If it does work correctly when vent line is disconnected at wall you KNOW there is blockage somewhere in your vent line.

2nd, most common problem are gas coils. Easy to replace. 99% of all gas coils are the same so here is the part# (WE04X10020) (write it down.

The dryer fails to dry unless it is run for asecond cycle 2which would be usung substantial power


I assume this is an electric dryer. First, make sure you have a clear airflow path. Lint screens are not perfect, and some dryers are very prone to packing stray lint in the ductwork, especially where there are turns or changes in cross-section shape. Be sure to also check the outside vent to make sure it is not clogged.

If you have good airflow and still have problems with slow drying, check for heat. Try running one load on low heat, and another on medium heat. If on one of the cycles, the dryer never gets warm, you have a burned-out heater element. If it never gets warm, you should check for an open thermostat first, then the heaters. (High heat uses both the medium and low heaters, so you don't have to check high heat separately.)

I can't tell you what the capacity of your dryer is without the make and model (you can probably get the specifications from the manufacturer's website or user's manual). Usually, it is one full washing machine load, if the washing machine is loaded properly and the laundry is not packed in.

Fan blows no heat


With engine warmed up, feel of heater hoses under hood to see if both are warm (careful don't burn yourself). If they both are warm, flapper door which directs airflow through heater is not working, probably because the actuator is bad or you have a vacuum leak. Check line under hood which goes to vacuum reservoir for vacuum, and check one way valve(check valve). Replace any old soft or cracked vacuum lines.

I have a 2002 Ford Taurus, I may have a slight antifreeze leak (strange smell when heat is on), however my heat is very tempermental: it takes forever to heat up the car and when it does, it will only blow...


Check the thermostat. It's almost like a "float" that allows coolant to pass through a hose. If it gets stuck, you have heating issues. Since yours seems to fluctuate, I'd bet it's a thermostat about to go. Fortunately, it's easy to fix and inexpensive.

Whirlpool ggw9868kq .Ducts are clean, airflow is good. Drum rotates. Dryer warms up then heating stops. happens in both auto and timed cycles.


My whirlpool dryer Model GGW9896KQ2 seems to run ok but it doesn't seem to heat up properly and takes several cycles to dry clothes. I checked the exhaust vent and it seems to be blowing air out ok. Also, it appears the dryer goes to the cool down cycle way to early. In addition, the dryer will sometimes shut off before the time is acutally done. help--I don't want to spend money for a tech or even a new dryer. It's only 8 years old.

I have to dry my clothes t 2 or 3 times before they are dry


Off hand I would think that you are not getting either the proper amount of heat (or no heat) or you have plenty of heat and insufficient airflow to release all of the moisture outside.

Both of the above possibilities are connected to airflow. Most dryers when the air ducts are restricted will burn out their thermal fuse, thus you don't have any more heat to dry your cloths.

Check your dryer venting outside when it is running, see if you are getting a healthy amount of air coming out, it should also be a good deal warm if it has been running for a while on high heat.

If it is warm and not much air, stop your dryer immediately so you do not burn out your high temperature limit fuse. Then disconnect the dryer hose from your dryer, start the dryer again (no heat setting) see how much air is coming out. If it is significantly more, you'll need to clean out your dryer venting in the house, if still low, the dryer itself is plugging up and needs to be cleaned from the lint trap to the blower wheel. (90% or more of the time they do not plug up after the blower motor to the back of the dryer.)

Hope this helps

Ihave a kenmore 70 series, i have heat but for only e few minutes, is the thermostat bad or something else?


In the air path between the heater and the dryer drum, and also in the exhaust air path, there are temperature detectors. First thing is to make sure there is good airflow blowing from the dryer exhaust -- not enough airflow will let too much heat build up. Not enough airflow means too much lint somewhere in the exhaust path, or the fan loose on its shaft. If the airflow is good, the one of those temperature detectors is probably dirty or bad.

Amana heat/air conditioning pump


You are going to have to increase the amount of heat absorbed by the evaporator coil on the indoor section of your system. First change the filter. Second turn the power off to the outdoor section and leave the indoor fan running until all the ice on the evaporator coil has thawed this could take a few hours. Third you need to verify that you are getting adequate airflow across the indoor evaporator coil and the outdoor condenser coil both fans should be spinning at full speed and airflow should be unobstructed by dirty coil fins or debris Hopefully after you've done this you will have cold air blowing inside and the larger of the two lines entering the unit outside will be cool to the touch but not frozen or even frosted regardless of run time and the small one should be the slightly warm but not hot. If the larger line continues to freeze then it could indicate a number of problems but essentially your condensers cooling capacity is outrunning your evaporator coils ability to absorb heat from air stream circulating in your home.Hope it works out for you GL!

Not enough heat


first check for proper voltage, second check for open limits, third check airflow,( make sure there is plenty), if not enough airflow the limits will turn off elements.
