Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

Hello, I recently purchased a new home which has a Nordyne model # JS58D-060KA air conditioning unit. Both times when the home was appraised and inspected, the AC worked when they provided power via a generator. Now, the standard electrical supply has been turned on and I cannot get any results. When I turn the temperature down on the thermostat I hear something kick-on in the attic above the thermostat but no air. If the thermostat temp is adjusted for heat or is disconnected, whatever is kicking on, goes off. Yet when I go out to the unit, there is no fan movement, no humming, nothing. I checked the fuses for continuity and both are in good shape. Connections to the unit look in good shape. Not sure what I'm overlooking that might possibly be causing this, as there is no damage to the unit and it worked less than a month ago without issue on the generator.

SOURCE: AC does not cool. Compressor kicks on and off (Humms when trying to start, electrical smell)

There are a couple possibilities:

1. If this is the first time you've started them for the season, one of the compressors might be seized up from sitting over the winter. In which case, new compressor required.

2. If you've just had the compressor serviced including recharging the system, it's possible that the system is simply overcharged. This will stop the compressor from working and giving you the same symptoms as above. If this is the case, you should have the service people come back with some guages and recover some of the refrigerant and the compressor should be fine.

3. If the unit has been sitting and there is a slow leak then there is not enough pressure in the system to allow it to run. The compressor will shut down if there is not enough pressure, but since you say there is a smell, i really doubt this is the case.

Most likely it's #1 or #2 above. If you haven't had it serviced recently, then yeah, it sounds like you're in need of a new compressor.

Good luck.

Blank screen sounds like a fried thermosat. Abrupt outages can affect certain types of thermostats. Make a jumper wire and jump across R and G. See if you get any action from anywhere. If a fan or compressor kicks in you know you have a burned out thermosat...

SOURCE: arcoair central heat /air conditioning unit

The blower motor kicks on when there has been a 24 volt control failure.

This usually means that a limit switch has tripped.

Most likely that would be a high temp limit switch or a rollout switch.

First, make sure the filters are clean. and the evap coil is clean. If eaither are dirty/clogged, it will partially block airflow, causing the furnace to overheat, causing the high temp limit to trip.

A rollout switch typically trips for three reasons.
1 flame rollout into the burner compartment due to poor airflow.
2 overheating af teh metal plate the rollout is mounted to, due to dirty, old, rusted components.
3 a bad limit switch.

If your unit has an LED light, count the flashes and it will hepl popint out the problem.
(locate the wiring diagram/flash code list, and correspond the flash count, with the code.)

First, check filters.

SOURCE: problem with my AC unit

Hi Phillip,

Check your thermostat wires to see if you have any of them which are bare and touching. If any are touching separate them and tape em up and try unit again. You have a direst short in your cooling portion of the unit.

What is the output for a Nordyne Model B5BM-X36K-B


http://gemaire.com/nordyne-b5bmx36kb-3-ton-13-seer-multipoise-air-handler-r410a-b5bmx36kb (via google search)

Looks to be about right. This is an older unit. Have you had it checked or serviced? I'd guess you have a freon leak and it will not work without the right amount of "blood". Or filter's havnt been chanded, or filters failed sometime and the coils are "clogged" especially if house had pets. Your careful inspection should revel those problems. If no problems and not been serviced recently call HVAC tech.

Your unit (B3BV-036K-BB) is a Westinghouse / Nordyne Unit.
Vertical Flow only, 36,000 BTU, 208/230 volts.
You cannot tell the manufacture date from a model number, only from the serial number. Try contacting manufacture with the serial number...

My Friends Unit is not working properly. He has a Interthermal AC unit. Model # S38C 060KA . He tells me the unit just blows air not cold air like it should.


Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. The first thing to check is the filter in the furnace or air handler. Also check the inside coil to be sure its not frozen up. Does the air coming out feel cold? It sounds like the unit could be low on charge which means it has a leak and should be leak checked repaired and properly charged. You would need refrigeration gauges to put on the system in order to properly check the refrigerant charge in the system. One other thing could be a dirty condenser coil. Turn the power off to the unit and use a garden hose with a strong nozzle and spray water through the whole coil to try and blow any dirt or debris through the condenser coil in the outside unit.

We have a hvac Nordyne model P3RA-048K Everything


Hello
Either the filter is clogged and needs to be repaced.Or check the coil inside the unit and see if it is getting iced up.You can try shutting the unit down for an hour or raising the temp.If this helps the motor speed then you know the coil was iced up.
It is also possible the motor may be going bad,doubtfull though since they will run for a while then shut off.
Check your filter
Check for ice
Possibly clean the inside coil.

I have a unit with a burnt transformer the original transformer has a red blue black on one side and a black with white stripes yellow and red on the other while the replacement has a green and red on one...


Hi, I have a suggestion here that might help. Contact the manufacturer to get an exact replacement sent to you. The manufacturer is Nordyne. Nordyne makes the same unit and private labels it for other companies, like Sears, Westinghouse, Intertherm, etc. Without out the correct color codes identifying the correct secondary (24Volt ) labeling of the wires the colors are meaningless. The colors of the original transformer wires are coded for the original Air Conditioning diagram that was packaged with it. The only standard coloring found on any transformer is for the primary side. i.e. 120 Volts 60 Hz Alternating Current. Those colors are Black for Hot and White for Neutral (or return).
If you get the transformer from Nordyne or a distributed for their products, Installing the new one will be very easy.

Hope this helps,

Condensation leaking out of unit


if it is the indoor unit leaking, make sure that all your drain lines are clear.... if you're talking about the outdoor unit leaking water in the heat cycle...that is normal.

I have a intertherm model feh-017h electric


It's the heat kit in the unit that is causing the problem. You need to do a continuity test on it to eleminate that they have shorted. This is the only thing in an electric furnace that will blow a fuse on it. Intertherm is a Nordyne product for manufactured homes. Of coarse they still sell them! I am a Nordyne dealer. Also a sequencer can not cause a fuse to blow. The service guy just wants to make money from you by installing a new unit. You can either re-wire the heat kit or you can purchase a new one and have it installed. If you are referring to the heat kit for 159.00, then that's a fair price for it if you are a non licensed person.

Loud noise


It is probably a rotary compressor unit.
They tend to make a start up noise.
Some technicians advocate adding a booster starting device to help the compressor start more quickly, thereby reducing startup noise.
