A/c will not come on with the remote or manual bypass

My unit will not come on with the remote or the bypass switch. i had this problem back in oct. and again now 1/20/09. back in oct. i check all connections and also changed the batteries. i then reset the settings and after several tries it started operating properly. now it is doing the same. for some reason the remote will not let the unit come on. the indicator light in the unit control panel is blinking twice then off in series. getting very frustated with the unit. can i install a wall mount thermostat and do away with the remote system. if so, please send me the information i need to order it and the cost.

Blinking led in the unit means some error or defect in the unit. It stops the remote control from working to protect the unit from operating with defective parts to avoid severe damage to the unit.

Try to reset the unit by disconnecting the power supply for 10sec. then on the power supply again and test. If it wont work then there are some defective parts in the unit that need to replace.

I have a Royal Sovereign ARP-9411 Air Conditioner that is not cooling. On the display it says 14. I have tried to drain the water from the unit, make sure that the drain was correct, clean the filter and...

Not familiar with that particular unit, but some units have a float switch in the trap of the drain plumbing (to protect against condensate overflow). Upon a blockage the switch cuts off power to the unit. This switch can be bypassed, at least for testing if you don't have an ohmmeter. If there is a switch, just remove from the switch from the circuit and connect back the wires without the switch. switches are connected in series, power goes in one end and comes out the other.

How to change the temperature without remote control on air condition Sanyo KS1872?

The same controls that are on the hand held remote are also on the unit below the LED screen. However, you may need to manually turn the ON/OF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 10 minutes, so that the electronics will revert back to the original factory settings.So, the control panel on the unit will activate for manual use.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

You need to bypass the on/off switch by jumping it, thereby taking the switch out of the circuit. If it works you have a bad switch. If it doesn't you have a power to the switch problem. Do you have a multimeter and a wiring diagram for this unit?

Previous tenant left ac window unit Haier HWF05XC5, but took the remote. Can I manually turn on this ac unit? when turning the power button, only the fan turns on, I'm unable to switch to AC

According to the Model Number you listed, it's a Mechanically or Manually Controlled AC unit. There is no remote control for it.Please be certain the Model Number you listed is correct and get back to me.

If it's the correct model number and it's manually controlled. You should have 2 rocker switches. One is to turn the power ON & Off. The other is to set the Fan Speed either on Low or High. Then there is a dial, numbered 1 to 10 to set the cooling level. 1 is min cool and 10 is Max Cool.

If the controls on your unit match what I described above, it's a manually controlled unit. No remote.

I hope this helped you. Please advise. Thanks.

Bulb blew in my dimplex michigan fire, model MCN20. I now can't get the bulbs to switch off with either the remote control or the on/off switch.

Stewart, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and wait 12 - 15 minutes. Then plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set the function controls manually (not with the remote) one at a time. If everything works as it should, the fire reset itself during the 12 - 15 minute timeout. If it didn't or that problem continues to reoccur, contact Dimplex North America, Technical Service at 888-346-7539.

Hope this helped you solve the problem.

A/C starts, goes immediately to heat

Unfortunately, your rear unit is calling for heat. If you put the rear unit on heat pump mode, does it then cool?
moz-screenshot-2.jpgmoz-screenshot-3.jpgThe reversing valve is energized in the cool mode of these AC's. So there is no real way to bypass it. I would check the thermostat and the control board in the unit to make sure that the switches are set correctly.

In the service manual section of the dometic/Rooftop RV Air Conditioner section. I have posted service manuals for the Heat Pump and the Comfort Control.

Hope this helps,


Rate me please.

Goodman split not responding to remote

First turn the main power off to the unit at the breaker, wait about five min. and switch the breaker back on, then see if this solves the problem. In the instalation manual that came with the unit on the last page you will see a code of the red blinking light, this will tell you the most likely problem if not solved by switching the breaker on again.............Hope this helps
