Question about Heating & Cooling
The unit is the older model that doesn't have a remote. You have to press the button on the wall unit. Lately it started to turn itself on and then after a few minutes it turned itself off. But today it turned itself on and keep going. We tried to turn it off at the wall unit but it wouldn't work. We then turned off the main for a few minutes and turned it back on and it still automatically started running. Please help as we have had to turn on of the main switches off but that has also affected half the hours sockets. Thanks and much appreciated.

If you are electronically inclined, replace the three 1000uf 16v electrolytic capacitors in the power supply board located above the power switch. They are likely bulging out at the top and failed. They are the three in a row at the top - center of the board, located between the two black heat sinks. Make sure you get caps rated for 105c degrees! I recommend replacing them with 1000uf 25v caps. 35v caps will work but might be a tight fit as they are larger diameter.
Should cost you about $8 for the parts shipped. You can get them from partsexpress or digikey or any good local electronics store. Your local radio shack may have them but they won'y be 105c and thus may not last long.
Not handy, ask around, there is usually some electronic tweaker guy around that will install them for a few bucks.
This has solved the turns on / then off problem every time in the 3 I've done.

Check your remote control using your camera or cellphone camera as your eyes. Point the remote control transmitter to your camera and "on", light should emit in your remote control transmitter (means good remote). Reset the unit by disconnecting the power supply for 10 sec. then "on" again and start the unit. If it wont work you need a qualified tech. to solve the problem.Some of your safety device might be defective.
