Ours was leaking water. After taking the covers off,cleaning it,and draining all the water out, I started getting the same problem with the light coming on every 7 minutes. I actually added some water to the system till it was too full and then drained it out through the plug. The light still came on every 7 minutes until I turned the unit off and then unplugged it for a few minutes. I plugged it back in, turned it on and reset the temperature. It seemed to reset itself and kept running normally. BB

Hello Tom ,   I'm sure i can help you with this.... I work on these units everyday. unfortuneately im not there to put my hands on it but i will explain as clearly as possible.    The most common problem I tend to find with these units is that the control board  and indoor fan motor tends to go bad in these quite often.  If you put the unit in A/C MODE  and/or Fan mode and set it to high if it will not speed up from low , then your problem could be in a couple different places.   1st.  The bearings in the fan motor could be wearing down ,  2nd  The Control board could be bad  in that its not telling the fan motor to speed up.     

 

And when you tell me that the compressor doesnt run in that mode at any given time..... which the electric heat and heat pump itself works together so that when the load is really tough  that the heat pump doesnt over work and in general saves life on your compressor.      

 

Solution is this.

 

Take your indoor fan motor off and and drill out the rivits  and it pulls apart easy, and replace the bearings and grease them.

 

ALIGNMENT OF THE FAN IS A MUST.   doesnt cost much at all the fix this. Just a little time and bearings

 

Replace the Board in the control box

 

 

This my friend will definetly solve your problem.    These problems i see everyday with these same units.

If this is a heat pump system it is possible that your fan blade is hitting ice on your condenser coil.

SOURCE: GE zoneline heat not working

Is it not heating in heat pump mode, emergency heat mode, or both? The default heat mode on the AZ55 is heat pump. Does the fan blow in heat mode? It's difficult to diagnose a heat pump with the information given. Since you say the unit cools, it's not a compressor problem. Possible problems could be reversing valve, thermostat, control board, or switch, if it is in heat pump mode. If it is running in emergency heat mode, problem could be switch, thermostat, control board, or heating element.

To determine if the unit is in HP or emergency heat mode, have a qualified technician check the auxiliary control switches. There are 2 sets of these. The set on the left, switch marked ALL I2R. If it is down, the unit is in HP mode, up is resistance heat. Hope this helps some.

SOURCE: Amana PTAC PTC093A35AA won't blow heat

The reset button is located behing a panel on the front of the unit that is labeled Heat Reset. If that label is gone then look around, it is a small hole, small enough for a paper clip to fit through.
That being said, I have 137 of these units in one of my hotels and have not had a single one needing to be reset. You probably are going to need a new control board kit. These can be purchased from Amana. They are $130. Make sure that you have pulled the heater coil out and inspected it first. Also, there was a recall years ago where Amana was supposed to contact and send out new voltage switches. These are the round black things that the Brown heater wires connect to on the upper and lower side of the heating coil. You should also try to replace those if you find the coil in good condition. I have had those resolve heating issues. Most of the heating issues were a result of a bad relay on the control board though.
Please remember to rate this fix.

Problem with GE PTAC-Model# AZ28E09DABM2 - Why won't condenser kick on when switching to AC from Fan. AC was working fine until today...Fan is still working...Pulled the unit out and could feel the h


Hummm. A bit difficult to solve this problem. Seems like the condenser outside is not working, I mean the fan of the condenser. Looks like you have a wall A/C and a wall A/C always have condensers outside the house and near the A/C. Have you checked if the fan is spinning? I don't think the compressor is at fault but check it anyway. You should be able to hear the compressor running either in the wall unit or in the outside condenser housing. The only heat you should feel is from the condenser itself. If you blows warm air, that means the fan is working, if not that means the fan is not working. But don't be confused with the fan not working because in winter time sometimes the fan is not working and some times it does. As I said, it's a difficult problem to solve but at least start with checking the situation with the fan in the condenser.

Condenser won't kick on, and is hot. Fan works? What's should I do?


Check whether the AC is on fan mode. There are two mode for this type. FAN and AC mode. Put it to AC mode and set the temperature. Solved!! :)

If it doesn't work, call the AC repair guy.
1) Either there will be error with the capacitor circuit which triggers the condenser.
2) there is an issue with your condenser and the circuit.

This is a small repair.

You're going to need a wiring diagram to be able to follow the logic of the cooling fan circuit. Working on electrical without a diagram is like going to a strange town without a road map....won't take much to get lost.

My GE portable a/c will cool when I first turn it on. The compressor kicks on and it cools fine, but after it runs a few minutes it kicks off and never cools again. The fan just runs. It does not appear...


I would say that if it starts cooling when it's turned on, then it has freon in it. Sounds more like it's kicking off on high head pressure, meaning the condenser is not getting cooled, head pressure builds up then a safety limit switch shuts it down to save the compressor from burning out.. Is there a condenser fan maybe not operating? or are the condenser coils clogged up with dirt?

Sounds like the AC relay/switch is sticking on sometimes. Locate and swap this relay. Look at your fuse box lids for location or search online for the exact location. You also might have a leak in the ac lines or the AC condenser clutch is not engaging to kick the ac on. You should feel a slight power loss or hear a slight stutter in the engine when pressing your AC switch. This means everything kicked on. It's a millisecond before the ECU realizes this and kicks up the idle to compensate.

you may want to check the fan for the AC condenser under the hood of the car. Your AC condenser should have a separate fan similar to that of the radiator. See if it turns on while the AC is on. If it does not, you may want to swap the relay of the two fans. If swapping the fan relay would start the AC fan then have the relay replaced. If it does not turn on then have the fan tested. Check the wires. If the fan is Ok you may have to check out the condenser if it needs cleaning.

Will not switch to cool mode. heat and fan work fine


hi,
regarding on switch mode theres a common line between heating and cooling although fan is always connect on them.,also with the thermostat,the sequence on this when you switch to cooling and your connection is on heater,the contactor will shift to compressor source,so if there is no cooling, the contactor supplying the compressor is not functioning when you switch on cool mode.try to tighten screw on compressor relay maybe only loose.on control panel,or check continuity of compressor if the compressor still good,check also the freon charge using clamp ammeter,this should be done by ac technician.have a nice day
rate me up,thank's
