Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Turned on the a/c for the first time this year and no fan. The compressor turns on but no fan. The fan works when turned to heat and t-stat cranked up. This is a BDP CO. 2085C02135. Is there a relay or limit switch that only works with cool?

Depending on the thermostat you have, there may be an issue there. Some stats have a subbase that controls the fan for AC. I would like to know the model of your stat

Warning light indicating comressor problem

Hi, if you have a warning light on your thermostat saying you have a compressor problem, you must have a heat pump. You may have lost the compressor, not knowing the age of this unit, and so on, it makes it more difficult to trouble shoot it. What you can do, is turn it off at the thermostat for around 10 minutes. Go to the out door unit. If you can, this is a Carrier, remove the hex head screws where the 2 copper lines are at and stat wires. It should take a 5/16 nut driver to remove them. You will then see the electrical components, such as the contactor, run capacitor that starts the outdoor fan and compressor. Even with the stat off, don't touch any wires as they are high voltage. With a helper, while you watch the contactor, it will have the main hot wires going into it, and coming out. When the stat is turned back on, make sure the temperature is set low enough or high enough for what ever you are using, heat or cool, and when its turned on you will hear and see the contactor pull in/close to start the fan and compressor. Look all of the wires over good to make sure none are burned off, ect. If nothing happens at all, nothing, go to your main breaker box to see if the breaker tripped. If so, turn it off hard, and back on hard to see if it holds and all comes on. Listen to see if you can hear the compressor running. If the fan is on but no compressor, it may be faulty, or you may have a small time delay relay board that has failed you. These are just things you can check. If the breaker trips out every time, the compressor is more then likely shorted to ground. You will then have to call a service company out to check it.Just follow the steps I have told you and you may solve it your self. Please get back to me, and I wish you the best.

We gave a Goodmn Hertz 60 Phase I heat pump - installed this summer....worked great for that temps are dropping we are needing heat. When we turn it on it comes on but never heats. Think it...

If you changed the unit but didn't change the thermostat it is possible that the thermostat that you have will not work with that unit. I see that the unit you installed is a heat pump, you may have a straight cool T-Stat. If you put the T-Stat in the "Auto" "Heat" mode the outdoor fan and the compressor should be workng as well as the blower fan. If it turns out that the outdoor fan and compressor are not running you will want to buy a Thernostat that is compatable with heatpumps should be 2 heat/ 1 cool

5 year old top freezer, no ice maker. Fans run when turned on, not sure about compressor. Does not get colder than RT. Is it compressor or thermostat? Installed in cottage, left running, power outages...

Unplug the refrigerator. Then take out the t-stat. There will be two wires on the back of the t-stat. Tape them together. Plug the frig back in. Now place your hand on the compressor to feel if its running. If it is you have a bad t-stat. If not look in the cover on the side of the compressor that has the wires going into it. You will be looking for burned wires or a burned relay coil. If everything there is okay look at the cylinder with the two wires. That's the capacitor. Does it look okay? If all of that seems fine then you may have a bad compressor. I hope this was helpful. Please leave feedback.
Thank you.

Old (20+ yrs.) Bryant-Carrier 397HAW060140 Furnace Fan Stays On

Its a bad high limit temp switch or sensor in the furnace that is out. The sensor is telling the board that the heat ex-changer is not cool enough to turn of the fan.

Bryant-Carrier Furnace Fan Stays On

I suspect a bad fan relay or bad fan control. Maybe the longer the control or relay is in the on position the more chance of it sticking on.

Based on the simplicity of this particular t-stat, I really think that it is bad and needs to be replaced. They do not make this particular model anymore. I have included a link to the operators manual for the stat. Good luck!

HELP!! I got a problem with my A/C

I looked at the pdf file page 20 of page 124 for t-stat says for a Y594g1476 to remove the jumper IF W1 is used. I don't know if you have 2nd stage of heat such as electric heat. I would check wiring according to your outdoor unit and indoor unit and the t-stat. At the very least you will need R and it looks like X terminal giving you the 24 volts. for the control circuit. O is for the reversing valve. G for the blower. Y for the compressor contactor. W1 goes to the fan section to operate 2nd stage heat if you have it.You can also remove the t-stat and make sure you have the correct subbase which the PDF file shows for a y594g1476 stat it should be a Q674 series. Also what you can do with the stat off is jump out R to G to O to Y that should bypass the t-stat and bring on the fan and compressor contactor and the reversing valve. ( reversing valve is energized in the cooling mode ) see what happens ,you may have a built in 5 minute timer before it starts.I was unable to find the PDF on your Tempstar. So I am not sure what the outdoor coil temp. sensor is. I know that to initiate a defrost heat pumps use an outdoor sensor strapped on the outdoor coil bend. it usually labeled DFT (defrost thermostat ) but that should only work in the heat mode. Also they may show an OPITIONAL outdoor sensor/stat to stage 2nd stage of heat if using electric heat. But as far as I know that is installed by the contractor and is optional. In closing I would double check the control wiring from the t-stat to the outdoor unit to the fan section. Then I would bypass the t-stat with the method I told you. You can also take it one step at a time R to G blower fan starts .R to O reversing valve energizes. R to Y compressor contactor closes (after 5 minutes).Also the PDF shows an optional outdoor sensor that hooks up to the thermostat. If your handy with a volt meter check that you have 24 volts between R and X terminal at the stat
