Hi, most of the time generic parts are used to replace bad ones. The voltages and microfarads or UF is what's important on the capacitors and the amperage and control voltage on the contactor. Your unit will not run better with new parts and I suggest your time and money be used to clean and check your unit instead of "tuning it up" with new parts. If the capacitors are swelled or leaking oil they need replaced. If the contacts are pitted or burned, they need replaced. The condensing unit will need cleaned from the inside out. Remove the fan assembly and spray from the inside out on each of the condensing coils to remove the debris stuck inside the fins. If there are oil ports on your fan motor, add about 4 drops of oil into both of them. The same on your inside fan motor. If it has a fan belt inside check it to make sure it isn't worn too badly. Adjust it if needed to give about 3 inches of play. Too tight will make your bearings go bad. Oil your bearings if the fan has then and they have oil ports. Check the evaporator inside to see if it has a blanket of fuzz on the side where the air enters it. It can be removed with a credit card when wet. Scrape along with the fins if it needs cleaned. With the unit running and the inside of the house fairly comfortable the large refrigerant line outside should sweat all the way up to the compressor but the compressor should remain fairly dry. If it does, you have a good refrigerant charge. With this cleaning and oiling your unit should work more efficiently and be ready for another year. NOTE: The heating/air-conditioning companies usually run a special on seasonal checkups. If you have one come out, Have them do all the above plus get your furnace cleaned and ready. If you want more information on the furnace, please let me know what kind it is and I will try to help. If this solution does not rate at least (ALMOST THERE) Please do not rate. Thank You. kstfas

SOURCE: bought open box product didnt come with owners manual. Just wondering what the evaporate option does on it. Does it make it blow colder air or no

The evaporator button turns on what is similar to a conveyor belt on the back of the unit. The two rollers, one at the bottom of the tank and the other is above the blower, is just like a conveyor belt, but instead of a black belt it's a white absorbent cloth. When turned on the rollers start moving the white cloth in a rotation into the tank at the bottom that is filled with water and two ice packs (you get 4 w/ it) and I put in a tray of ice cubes at night. . As it goes down into the tank it absorbs cold water and as it goes up the blower is drawing in cold liquid molecules from the white cloth, then the cold liquid molecules are drawn through the blower and out the front of the unit. This conveyor system does remove so you can remove the tank to add or change the water. This is also a filter on the back. When the Evaporator is off the conveyor just is not on. I hope I made any sense, lol. I am not a technical writer and spent 15 mins trying to explain it. I hope I helped.
I just purchased one at WalMart. I realllly like it. I have a room w/ no windows. One little air conditioner at the end of the apartment so I get none of the cold air. I heard about this so I got it. I love it! At night I don't have to have all these fans that stiffen my neck and makes it sound like I am in a airplanes turbine. Just this baby with two frozen packs at a time. I put a tray of ice cubes also at night. You do not feel water on you but it's definetly much cooler then a fan. Especially in humid conditions. People who say it sucks or does not work. They probably expected to get a stand alone air conditioner for $80 instead of $300.

The customer service # that came w/ mine is 866-876-4332 9-5 cst M-F or MideaUSA@aol.com

SOURCE: open vent or closed vent

The vent open draws in a small amount of fresh (outside) air to mix with the air being recirculated in the house to provide an air exchange. The vent closed will circulate the air already in the house.

In most cases its a good idea to leave it open unless you have a drafty house or find it difficult for the air conditioner to keep up.

What does code 446 mean on the 1996 Chevy Blazer?


P0446 = Evaporative Emission Control / System Vent Control Circuit Malfunction.

Check it, and before you replace the Evap Canister read this:

Subject: DTC P0446 (Restricted/Blocked EVAP Vent Path) Set, Service Engine Soon (SES) Lamp Illuminated (Replace Hose/Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Canister Vent Asm) #02-06-04-037A - (02/02/2005)
Models: 1999-2003 Chevrolet Silverado Models
1999-2003 GMC Sierra Models
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This bulletin is being revised to add model years. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 02-06-04-037 (Section 06 -- Engine/Propulsion System).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Condition
Some customers whose vehicles are operated in dusty type environments, such as farming or mining off-road type applications, may comment about the illumination of the instrument panel SES light, with a DTC of P0446 (Restricted/Blocked EVAP Vent Path) being set.

Cause
Dirt and dust intrusion into the EVAP canister vent hose assembly, resulting in restricted air flow, may cause this condition.

Correction
After following the Service Manual diagnostic P0446 and determining that the EVAP canister vent valve is the cause of the SES light, replace the existing EVAP canister vent hose assembly with a new assembly, P/N 15086429. This new assembly has an enhanced filtering capability and a filter element that can be easily removed and cleaned. To ensure correct installation, follow the procedure below.

Raise the vehicle. Suitably support the vehicle.
Disconnect the EVAP canister vent valve electrical connector.
Disconnect the vent valve pipe at the EVAP canister.
Remove and retain the EVAP canister vent valve bracket mounting bolt.
Disengage, from the underbody, the two vent valve pipe clips securing the pipe to the underbody.
Remove and discard the complete EVAP canister vent hose assembly.
Position and secure the new assembly to the underbody using the existing hole and mounting bolt.
Tighten
Tighten the bracket mounting bolt to 12 N·m (106 lb in).

Install the two vent valve pipe clips into the existing underbody holes.
Connect the vent valve pipe to the EVAP canister.
Connect the EVAP canister vent valve electrical connector.
Lower the vehicle.
When properly installed, the new EVAP canister vent hose assembly will be positioned outboard of the original installation location. This new location provides clearance for accessing the filter element for cleaning purposes. To access the filter element, disengage the filter cover to valve locking finger by gently lifting the finger upward while simultaneously rotating the filter body clockwise. After approximately 45 degrees of rotation, the filter can be disengaged from the valve by gently pulling outward. The filter cover can then be removed and the filter element and body can be washed with soap and water. Prior to reinstalling, ensure that the body and filter element are dry.

1999 Olds Alero, unleaded gas. Am having problem with gas tank


have your evaporative purge valve solenoid check. because its controls the gas vapors going to canister purge or vent valve.take it to dealers have the evap system scan because its not venting or controling gas vapor.it suppose vent gas vapor to intake to be burn.if it dont work it causes excess gas vapor pressure built up in tank. make it hard to pump gas into it.

  • Check for missing fuel filler cap.
  • Check for loose fuel filler cap.
  • Check for possible cross-thread fuel filler cap condition.
Is a fault present concerning the proper installation of the fuel filler cap? Yes No REPLACE cross-threaded or damaged fuel filler cap. RECONNECT and TIGHTEN the fuel filler cap only one eighth turn so that the cap initially clicks by sound or touch. CLEAR Continuous Memory DTCs. COMPLETE an Evaporative Emission Running Loss Monitor Repair Verification Drive Cycle (refer to Section 2 , Drive Cycles). RERUN Quick Test . If DTC P0455 or P0457 is present, Go to HX44 . CLEAR Continuous Memory DTCs. COMPLETE an Evaporative Emission Running Loss Monitor Repair Verification Drive Cycle (refer to Section 2 , Drive Cycles). RERUN Quick Test .

For DTC P0455 still present: Go to HX44 .

Otherwise, INFORM the vehicle owner that it is important and necessary to immediately install the fuel filler cap after every refueling event. HX44 DTC P0455: VISUAL INSPECTION FOR SUBSTANTIAL EVAPORATIVE EMISSION SYSTEM LEAKS
  • Check for missing fuel filler cap. If the cap is loose DO NOT DISTURB EVAP system.
  • Verify that both the input port vacuum hose and EVAP return tube are attached to the EVAP canister purge valve. Note: If the EVAP canister-CV solenoid assembly is not accessible during this pinpoint test step, GO to Evaporative Emissions, Section 303-13 in the Workshop Manual for removal and installation instructions.
  • Verify that the CV solenoid is properly seated on the EVAP canister (if possible).
  • Visually inspect for disconnected or cracked fuel vapor hoses/tubes between the intake manifold, the EVAP canister purge valve, the EVAP canister, the fuel vapor vent valve assembly and if applicable the fuel vapor control valve tube assembly.
  • Check for damage to the fuel filler pipe and the fuel tank.
Is a fault indicated? Yes No CONNECT or REPLACE fuel vapor hoses/tubes as required. REPLACE damaged EVAP system components (fuel filler pipe, fuel vapor vent valve assembly, fuel vapor control valve tube assembly, EVAP canister purge valve, FTP sensor and EVAP canister-CV solenoid assembly) as necessary. REFER to Evaporative Emissions, Section 303-13 in the Workshop Manual for removal and installation instructions. GO to HX45 . GO to HX45 . HX45 DTC P1443 and P0455: CHECK FOR EVAPORATIVE EMISSION SYSTEM LEAKS
    Note: When checking for leaks or blockages in the EVAP system, energize (close) the canister vent (CV) solenoid through the scan tool for a maximum of nine minutes per pinpoint test step. Then de-energize the CV solenoid prior to performing the subsequent pinpoint test step. This is done to assure proper closing of the solenoid.
  • Disconnect and plug the EVAP return tube (EVAP canister purge valve to intake manifold) at the intake manifold vacuum source.
  • Connect scan tool.
  • Key on, engine off.
  • Access VPWR PID. If the voltage is not 12 volts or greater, GO to HX61 .
  • Locate evaporative test port [marked EVAPORATIVE SERVICE PORT DO NOT USE UNREGULATED PRESSURE ABOVE 6.89 kPa (1 PSI)] near EVAP canister purge valve or EVAP canister.
  • If vehicle is not equipped with the evaporative test port, GO to HX50 .
  • Install the Rotunda Evaporative Emission System Leak Tester 310-F007 (134-00056) or equivalent at the evaporative test port.
  • Close CV solenoid by accessing Output Test Mode on the scan tool.
  • Select ALL OFF mode and push START button.
  • Regulate the nitrogen or argon gas pressure on the tester to 3.48 kPa (14 in-H 2 O).
  • Follow the instructions that come with the EVAP System Leak Tester and pressurize the EVAP system.
  • Perform the EVAP system leak test.

Carrier evaporator coil


I recently contacted Carrier Corp after our routine annual HVAC check on our residential system indicated that our 4 ton AC unit and 3 ton unit had leaking evaporator coils.
>
They basically told me to shove it in a very curt letter - In other words even though a leaking evaporator coil is a manufacturing defect they will not offer any financial assistance in replacing the failed evaporator coils.
>
I spoke to several HVAC engineers and they indicated Carrier has a high percentage of evaporator coils and compressor failures on residental HVAC systems.
>
The copper wall of the evaporator coil is being drawn thinner than in earlier years and the R22 being acidic slowly eats through the copper tubing.
>
Evaporator coils should not fail according to the HVAC Engineers if properly manufactured.
