Code 1 on a goodman furnace. Changed filter, reset thermostat, hit the breaker for reset and still the temp is dropping and the unit is not kicking from the thermostat. Thermostat is only a year old.


You unit is under locked out mode due fail on start up. Get sand paper clean out the flame sensor, and jump the 2 wires that go to the pressure switch as soon as the inducer came on. Doing this the flame should stay on until it meet set temp at thermostat . If it does what said your pressure switch need replacement . Good luck and keep me up to date .

What is the operating tempreture at mid range setting & coldest setting


There is no certain temp at mid range . If there was , I'd say 40 degrees . If there was a certain temp , at any setting , then there would be no need for a thermostat , only an on/off switch . The mid-range , is set by the factory , as a normal operating temp , to keep food safe . However , some people like their milk colder , so , they turn the thermostat higher . Like milk warmer , turn down the thermostat . Basically , the settings are a personal preference of the temperature you like your food .

My air handler comes on ,not the outside unit when my thermostat is in the off position even if i turn the thermostat down to 50 and have it turned off the air handler comes on for about 5 to 10 minutes...


If you have a standard thermostat the fan switch is for the air handler only. It completely over rides the thermostat for most settings. Now lets see this is what I'd expect:
fan switch on Indoor fan runs all time
Fan switch auto Indoor fan only runs when thermostat is set to cool or heat and the thermostat is turned up above room temp for heat or below room temp for cooling. In both of these modes the furnace blower comes on and stays on til the room temperature is satisfied. The outdoor unit only comes on for AC the out door unit will not come on for heat or the "on" setting on the thermostat. See exception 1 & 2 below...

Exception 1- (in a heat pump the out door unit runs in both heat and cool mode unless it has emergency heat turned on then it will not come on outside in the heat mode, and depending on the type of heat pump and furnace or air handler it is). A heat pump thermostat usually has "backup heat" and an "emergency heat" setting switch on the thermostat.
Exception 2 - On some thermostats they are made to cycle on the heat if the temperature reaches a preset temp (around 50'f usually but definitely by 40'f). This mode prevents freezing when if instance the homeowner is away or while the home is under construction. In this mode the fan inside can run but the heat usually comes on with it.
Exception3 - On some electric furnaces the heating strips may be individually controlled and thus not all come on at one time. This may give the feel of no heat especially if the room is cold.

Now there may be other exceptions but Ive tried to give you a heads up on some of the most common ones.
If you need more help please post more specifics about your unit/system as to for sure what switches are set to what setting and what is happening with each. My first though was that maybe your system is OK and you needed to know if the thermostat was working properly.

If this helpd you understand your problem would you please give me as hifgh a mark as you can. Thnaks for using fixya and good luck.

Heater shuts off as soon as the room is warm


I take it once the temp is set to 71, and the ambient temp reaches 68 or so, it shuts off, never to come on again?

If that is true the thermostat in the unit is damaged, worn out or in need or replacement, but try a couple tricks.

First, if there are access panels to clean, clean it per the manual, it could be that a dirty filter or air inlet is confusing the thermostat.

Next, unplug the unit for at least 5 minutes, try it again.

Next set the unit on it's highest temp and blower setting, let it rip for 20 minutes, shut it down, unplug and remain unplugged for 5 minutes.

Next set the unit at 71 HIGH MODE.

see if we have a mode switch problem or thermostat if it works on high mode, it is not the thermostat, but I imagine it is, but I am curious as to if it once goes off, it never again comes back on?

Unit not freezing , evaporator fan wont run


If this is a Bev-Air, don't think the door switch will control the fan. At the evap, there is a temp sensor called a fan delay. When unit goes into defrost mode, this warms up. Some also serve a dual purpose. It will terminate the defrost cycle at a certain temp., say 51 degrees or so, at the evap. Anyway, when unit comes out of defrost, it keeps the fan off so it allows the evap to cool quicker and to prevent circulating warm air. This could be your problem. Not a hard fix but they can be a pain sometimes. Outside chance that the unit is low on refrigerant (freon). This will not let the evap get cold enough to trip the sensor back into position to turn the fan on. Good Luck. Restaurant Parts and More carry alot of Bev-Air stuff. 1-888-814-1110. Ask for Rick
