Please give the model number, is the furnace gas or electric, and is the system a heat pump (which that can be determined by the model number.)?

Can not get fan on to turn on. All else fine. heat only furnace. No air conditioning...only air circulation.I used to set it on "Cool" and "Fan On"and get air to circulate. Do I need new thermostat?


Since you have two thermostats that operate the heating unit and the fan, and the fact that neither will turn the blower on, I would suspect the furnace/ air handler. Turn the thermostat to heat and see if the heat and the fan comes on, if it does operate normally in heat, the fan relay or the high speed on the blower is most likely the culprit. (If the furnace is equipped with a circuit board, the fan relay is integral to the board, if it an older furnace it has a separate fan relay). If it does not operate normally in the heating mode, verify power to the furnace, see if the flame comes on, if it does: the fan motor, circuit board or the fan relay are most likely the cause. hope this helps!

We have an amana ac. It recently started making a loud noice from the furnace closet which is upstairs. 2 different ac repair companies came out but could not find anything wrong. The line to the outside...


Hello, if the line is freezing there is either a airflow problem or low refrigerant charge. If there is a loud noise most likey the bearings on the motor or the blower wheel is bad and causing a lower amount of air passing over the evaporator coil and thus the freezing of the suction line.

Bryant furnace model FX4C, FY4A with heat pump and a/c will not switch from a/c to heat pump. Only have heat with emergency heat on.


WELL this could be a couple of problems the reversing valve could be stuck either from not enough pressure which would be a leal and low on freon or the unit is off on low pressure switch/high pressure switch from either being low on freon or something restricting it and caused unit to shut down, ive been a servicer for many years and if it gets below 30 degrees outside i would recommend running the e-heat anyway it does cost more money minute for minute. but you will find it will heat alot faster in those colder nights than the heat pump therefore cost is about the same.
as far as not switching over could be low on freon or a stuck reversing valve... is the outside even running in cool mode if not the you may have a tripped pressure switch...good luck

Flame sensor dirty


Sandpaper lightly scrubbed over the sensor tip to remove any contamination.

Sometimes cleaning is not enough and the sensor must be replaced.

Condenser shuts down after a couple of hours.


check capacitors, make sure the condensor coil is clean. sounds like the compressor is overheating. is the condensor fan motor still turning when it stops cooling. if not check low voltage wires to condensor, furnace and t-stat

A/C unit turned off- didnt realize we had a mat covering the unit


Hello,
If the breaker had tripped, you'd detect some looseness in the trip switch, even though it may not appear to be tripped. Once you have identified the correct breaker, trip it to OFF and then back to ON. Also check at the unit; it will either have a service disconnect, a fused disconnect or a circuit breaker at the wall. Compressor units have a thermal relay that causes them to shut down on high temperature. Let the unit cool down thoroughly. If this is the issue, and you are standing close enough, you may hear it reset when it cools. Usually, cool down occurs in 30 minutes or less. Try it again, but don't leave it unattended until it has made it through several cycles and you are confident that the unit is back to nornal. If any further issues develop from this incident, shut the unit down, trip the circuit breaker for the unit to off and call a serviceperson.
I hope this gets you going again!

Best regards, W/D

Not cooling


every single component in your cooling unit is needed for it to work, so anything can shut it down. If you could provide more information as to what type of unit you have: is it a central heat and air package unit? or central split system (furnace indoors and condenser outside)? or a wall a/c? Does any part of the system/unit do anything?

Janitrol Heat Pump


Jenny,

Sounds to be a system freon leak. The unit and the stat talk to each other and if the temp is not reached and the unit shut down in a set amount of time it turns on the E-heat. Now there are other facts that could be involved, plugged filters, dirty coils inside and out, etc. Check your filters first to eliminate that problem.
