Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Solahart hot water system (Blackchrome flat panel) no longer heats up. Any ideas on what the problem is?

It made gurgling noises for a while, but no longer shows any sign of life. System is about 16 years old. Its a thermosyphon type, and so it seems that the thermosyphon is apparently no longer working. Why would this happen, and can it be fixed? The only heating is now by the electric booster.

Gurgling noise indicate air in the system . To properly circulate all air must be removed from system . Purge system and see if that does the trick. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Heat Pump/Furnace Trip Circuit Breaker

My system will run for a short period and then suddenly trips the circuit breaker in the main panel for the heat pump.

I have a Goodman - 3 ton system about 8 - 9 yrs old. I'm being told that I need to replace the heat pump/air conditioner compressor?

What do you think?

Why does a 2005 dodge caravan gurgle when turned off?


that indicates that the engine is on the point of overheating
when the engine is turned off the water is no longer circulating around the cylinder walls and head and the heat from those items makes it boil off hence the gurgle

Freezer gurgles


    • Give it mouth wash lol

      Check the water valve on the back of the refrigerator if it has an ice maker. Make sure the valve is turned completely on and not constricting the flow of water to the refrigerator via the water supply line. You might also hear a simultaneous buzzing sound when the gurgling noise occurs. In some refrigerator models, this filling process is on a timer, and you might hear the buzzing and/or gurgling every 15 minutes or so.


    • Check the water supply line for leaks or damage. You might see a puddle of liquid on the floor. If air is pulled into the water line as the refrigerator is pulling in water, that can create a gurgling noise. Replace the damaged hose yourself, or contact an appliance repair technician for assistance

      • f he refrigerator to feel a slight vibration. This is probably the compressor processing the refrigerant, which is a liquid. This flow of refrigerant can produce a gurgling sound, and it is normal. However, a simple way to reduce this noise is to make fewer trips to the fridge. When you open the door, you let hot air in, which means the compressor has to work harder (and gurgle the refrigerant more) to cool things back down.

    • Wait while the refrigerator completes its defrosting cycle if you hear water dripping and gurgling in the freezer area. When the heating coil turns on, the melted water from the frost flows down to a drain pan for evaporation to take place. The defrost process usually takes about 30 minutes. This is automatic and cannot be prevented in most refrigerators. Keep the closed to try to prevent unnecessary frost buildup.


    • Wait while the water equalizes in the refrigerator if you hear a gurgling sound when shutting the door. This is normal and is a result of air being forced through the drain tube. The gurgling can last several seconds but should eventually dissipate this usually happens with old fridges upgrade its a good investment

Sounds like a faulty temp guage/r a strange malfuntion in a sensor to me as well, only doing it when it going up hill really makes no sense for the way the cooling system works so I doubt that its actually running hot, which is likely why he asked about the gurgling noise, it would force water back into the resivoir if it was running hot assuming that the thermostatic radiator cap is working properly.

Change the thermostat and make sure you blead the system of air and if it still keeps heating up then you have a bigger problem and that is the head gasket.

Check the water coolant level because some of the hot water goes into the heater radiator behind the dash. Seems you have air in the system.
