Theres a foamy brown oily substance in my coolant and now car is running hot on my 2000 suzuki esteem 1.8 any soulutions

Not sure what you are saying. However. If the car has ran hot. Check the oil see if it looks like chocolet milk or brown spots on the oil dip stick.If thats the case you have either. A cracked head, Warped head,or a blowen head gasket. First thing check the fuses to the fan relay to the raditaitor. If fuses are good. Make sure the fan is turning on when it starts to get hot. If the fan works. Change out the Thermostate. Good Luck.

How can i install the transformer for intermatic timer t10004rt3

Intermatic phone number: 815-675-7076

T104RT3 has 120Volt 300 watt transformer with 12-13-14Volt output.

The timer mechanism is 240Volt T104M.

Since both 120Volt and 240Volt are needed, the wire coming from breaker box should have 2 Hots and a neutral, plus the ground wire.
So you need 12-3 with/ground wire or 10-3 with/ground wire.
See image of typical wires plus ratings:
See example image showing 2 hots and neutral and ground coming from breaker box:

The 2 hot wires come from a 240Volt circuit breaker.
The neutral comes from the neutral busbar, or can be accessed from tying into any white neutral on nearby 120Volt outlet.

How to wire timer:
Connect 240Volt hot wires to terminals 1 and 3 on timer. Connect 240Volt timed output to terminals 2 and 4 on timer.

How to wire transformer:
Connect 120Volt transformer two different ways. (a) white wire connects to neutral wire and black wire connects to terminal 1 on timer. With this wiring, the transformer is ON at all times. (b) white wire connects to neutral wire and black wire connects to terminal 2 on timer. With this wiring, the transformer will be ON when timer turns on.
Do not put both stranded wire and copper wire under same screw terminal. Instead connect transformer wire to solid copper wire using wire nut.

Hello, no cold air The fan out side is not turning on... inside the unit is a brown connection box all the wires go in... on top is a contact switch... when I manually make the contact buy pushing do to...

You have an issue on your low voltage side. More then likely its an open safety switch or comp delay on circut board if your curcut board has one. Could also be a bad stat or blown transformer. You need to verify you have 24v power on your low voltage side first things first. If you have 24v your transformer is ok, if not start there.

1/3 Hp 115 volt 24 year old motor 40 amps. single Phase. is this for 110 volt Plug in to wall.It also 3 wires , Orange,Red, White, were do i hook these up to on a 110 Plug. Can you Please help.

You looked at nameplate on motor to get the rating information?
Rating plate may also have small wiring diagram.

I was looking at AO Smith single-phase 2-speed pool pump motors yesterday.
The rating plates show wiring.
Open following link:

Notice the image shows the words: Brown White Line Line.
Brown and white are wire colors. Line means 'power' from breaker box.
240V will have two Line wires, L1 and L2. 115Volt will have Line or L1 and N or Neutral.
Look at your rating plate and then add a comment with clear description of what appears on rating plate, or include in-focus photo. Put your camera in macro to take close-ups.

Your wall outlet has 2 plug-in slots. One is wider that the other.
'Line' will refer to Hot wire from breaker which corresponds to smaller slot on outlet.
'N' or 'Neutral' is neutral wire from breaker box which corresponds to wider slot on outlet.

Water runs when furnace is off, but stops when furnace is on.

the 760 humidifier does not need a transformer wired externally. the 760 has its' own 24v transformer inside the fan compartment. this transformer will provide the power to enrgize the water solenoid as needed. it sounds like to me the additional trasnformer is hot all the time. when the furnace comes on, the unit gets power and the internal transformer is cancelling the power from the external transformer. this would explain why it quits running when the heat is on. since the external transformer is hot all time, when the heat shuts off, the solenoid is getting energized by the external transformer. to make this run correctly, you need to get rid of the external transformer. leave the humidifier high voltage wires hooked up so they are only hot when the furnace runs. if you have a humidistat that has a r and c terminal, you will need to wire these directly to the r and c on the furnace control board and move the switch inside the humidistat to "power". make sure it is not on "bypass". then wire your 2 brown wires from the humidifier to each of the "h" terminals on the humidistat. if you have a humidistat that only has 2 terminals, wire one brown wire to each of the terminals. this should allow it to run properly.
