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

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

Heating blowing coo air downstairs and warm upstairs?


Some of this depends on where the air handler/furnace is located. Most often in two story houses, it's in the attic upstairs, or in a closet upstairs. A duct routes air from the furnace to the downstairs supply duct, so it is a distance from the air handler.
When the unit first initiates a heating cycle, that duct is going to be full of cool air, and the duct itself will be cool. So the furnace has to run long enough to push the cool air out, as well as warm the duct up, before your going to feel warm air at the registers downstairs.

Keep in mind, heat rises. And, your thermostat only monitors the immediate area where it's located. In your case, upstairs.
Two story houses are problematic because of this. And one way around it is to have a damper system installed that distributes the air upstairs or downstairs based on a thermostat located in those spaces. There would be 2 dampers, and 2 thermostats (one upstairs, one downstairs). Each stat would control a damper, and the call for heat or cooling.

Let me know if you would like to consider a system like this, and I can point you to components to use. I've put several system like this in.

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.
