Thermostat don't work

The thermostat for my comfort air model # R-183A-2 is bad. All I see in your parts listing is a RAC-183A. Would it fit my AC?

Hi! there,
how do you able to test thermostat,i've experiencing even i buy a new one it doesn't work w/ at all same spec,before i put it on a new one i've test it with multitester setting in resistance R1 hook it on two terminal,thermostat is a switch,then
the filler bulb of thermostat soaked in ice bucket or cooler styrofore filled with ice,observed in 12 minute or 15minutes if will click off. the pointer of tester will deflect at rest position or high resistance,meaning the thermostat is working good,if you pull out the filler bulb it click on again and it has a connection again,if has no click or no response to tester for a 30 minutes this thermostat is defective.if you dont have tester ,service extension light can be a tester,connect terminals of thermostat it on a series connection,same process with the tester,have a nice day,regards

Dryer not making hot air

1. If you are not comfortable with electricity.
2. If you do not know how to use a volt/ohm meter
Beware, you can get electrocuted.
I found a simple wiring circuit on page 7 of
  1. Dryer does not run: check the electrical outlet.
  2. Dryer runs, no heat: there are 4 parts to check: timer, thermostat, heater, and fuse. UNPLUG the dryer, set the timer to OFF, and use an ohm meter with a high OHM's selection to check continuity between the thermostat, heater and fuse. OK if it shows some resistance: then the timer is probably the problem. If OPEN, check each part individually, the ones showing some resistance are OK, the bad part is the one that is OPEN.
  3. Checking the timer, use a voltmeter set at range that measures the range appropriate for 220/240 Volt AC. This can be dangerous. Using the PDF as a guide, put one probe on "3", the other on "4" , when running you should see 220/240 range, if not, the timer is bad.

Duo therm ac in my rv quit when the converter burned up does the ac need 12v to work?

there is a fuse located under the shroud on the roof AC on a circuit board that controls the thermostat to turn on the power to the Air Conditioner replace it it is marked F-1 or, on some F-2 etc.
the air conditioner works on both DC voltage for the thermostat and AC voltage for the compressor

Have Goldstar Model R1804h ac/heater window unit when turned to heat blows only cold air what is easiest thing to check and purchase first.

If your thermostat is working on the Heat cycle (listen for "click" when turned up and down on Heat), then your heating coil assembly is probably bad. The heating coil is in series with a Fusible Link and a Bi-metal thermostat, if any of these three fails, there will be no heat from the coils.The Link and Bi-metal Thermostat are made up as part of the heater coil assembly.

My 6 yr old simpson fridge model STM3900MA-R1 has stopped cooling but the frezzer is still working??

There is a fan that sits behind the rear panel in the freezer compartment. The refrigerator part of your fridge gets its supply of cold air by this fan. With everything out of the freezer, remove the panel that covers the fan so you can see if it is running. Almost certainly, it will not be running.

So, 1 of 2 things can be the problem. Either the thermostat that turns the fan on and off, or the fan motor itself has gone bad. If you have a multi-meter, set it to "AC Voltage". The fan should have 120 volts going to it. We know this because the refrigerator is warm - therefore, the thermostat should be in a closed position, sending voltage to the fan.

If it has voltage going to it but is not running = the fan motor is bad. If it does not have voltage going to it the thermostat is bad.

If you have some experience working with electricity and appliances, either job is not too difficult. The internet is swimming with appliance stores that will sell these parts at very reasonable prices. They will need "make" and "model" numbers. Be sure the power is off before starting.

PS--All that I've ever worked on so far; If the thermostat/switch is turned to the "OFF position, the power is completely off and the appliance is safe to work on. But always use your meter and check the wires after turning off.

Good luck and if this has helped you I hope you will take a sec to rate me. Thank You!

2000 Buick LeSabre A/C blows hot out drivers vents and cold out passenger vents history codes are BO179output air temp sensor 2 short to ground or open,,BO234 Air mix door 1 range error,,,BO237 air mix...

Depending on the model, normally there is a door at the center of the air duct for the AC. It should be found underneath the dashboard at the center. Normally when the motor of the door is faulty you would not get the correct mix or will not get a constant air temp blowing on the two sides. Have the motor checked out. The other scenario is the thermostat or the temp sensor found near the same location towards the evaporator or the part where you can see the coils if you remove all the cover. Inspect the wiring to that part make sure that there is no exposed wire or loose wire. Either there is an issue with the wiring or the thermostat has gone bad. A bad thermostat would mean no signal to the AC which activates the door to send the correct air temp.
