Check your thermostat first. take of face of therm, disconnect wires, tie in red and white together, ,if your furnace runs ok, then your therm is bad. Thats the easiest way to test.

SOURCE: Thermostat setting

what i would do is see if the outside unit is working at all. when you first turn it on the air was warm due to the fact that the temperature inside was cooler than the set point. when it get within 2 degrees the unit shuts off the backup heat and your running on the hp alone. with both stages at the same temp you are running the hp and the electric heater and that can become very expensive. What I would do is make sure that the filters were clean and look at the outside unit and see if it has a red reset button on it, if it does reset it and see if the unit runs. If it doesn't then you need to call a quallified service person out to take care of the problem.

This is the problem you have when you rely on "modern electronics". Suggest you buy a manual 'stat and just turn down the temp at bedtime. Make it cold and use a blanket, that is what we did in the " good 'ole days".

I'm not quite sure I understand what you have done but, make sure your compresor(outside is running and, that you don't have the thermostat set to "fan". You want the display to show "cool" and then adjust your temp. It sounds like you have the system set to fan and not cool. Provide me with a model number and I will see about getting you a manual.

My Honeywell thermostat isnt keeping my house cool even though the temp is set to 69. Currently 90 degrees in here


Its probably not the thermostat. The air conditioner may be stuck on heating mode. If its a reverse cycle, the reversing valve may be jammed so even when the thermostat is calling for cold air, it stays on heat. If the machine is on heating mode, it should be blowing cold air out of the outdoor unit of the air con. If its on cooling mode, the outdoor should be blowing hot air.

I don't know a good setting on a robertshaw 9420 thermostat, for really cold,and fast air condition.


Well Brian, an air conditioner creates the same temperature drop across the evaporator at any thermostat setpoint, so there is no setting that will get it really cold really fast. If your return air is 88 degrees (in a hot house where the system has been off) the supply air temp is going to be near 68 degrees..... as the a/c runs, the air changes within the structure cause a reduction in the average return air temperature and slowly drops the return to 87, then 86 then 85 etc, etc and the corresponding supply air temp continues to drop from 68 to 67 to 66 to 65 etc etc. Eventually the supply air temp after the appropriate 'air changes' within the structure will drop to 55 degrees and possibly even lower to satisfy the average room temp at 75, 74, 73 etc. to a point.

There are SOME newer a/cs that have two speed compressors that may effect the supply air temperature drop under differing load conditions, but thats a different ball of wax.

So, if you want it cold quickly you are out of luck, just leave the t-stat set at 70 degrees and pay the electric bill when it comes in.....

I've used you guys once before - right the first time so trying again for a different problem. I've got a Frigidaire glass-top electric range (model PLEF398CCD) and 2 of the four burners stay on...


Hello,
Thanks for using Fixya once again we appriciate it!

The problem with your stove is going to be with the infinate switch(what ya are calling knob) for the burners that giving ya trouble are shorted and the contacts inside of it are welded so they permanantly are stuck on the HIGH setting. To repair that the switches for the affected burners would need to be replaced.

The part number for those switches is 316095503 they could be purchased at your local appliance partstore or online at;

Unit will not stay cool. Is it a thermostat, compressor?


Small refrigeration units like this one like to fail to cool by developing a small leak and slowly
leaking refrigerant.
THERMOSTAT FAILURE CHECK:
A technician will check the thermostat using using a DMM (digital multimeter). But you can suspect the thermostat if you set the thermostat high and the compressor motor does not run,
then set thermostat low, and the compressor motor also doesn't run - in other words, the thermostat is failing to start the refrigerator's refrigeration system no matter what its setting - an obvious failure of the thermostat.
COMPRESSOR FAILURE CHECK:
If the compressor is dying, you would hear the compressor running almost constantly, but not
sounding quite right (uneven noise, clunking, tapping).
REFRIGERANT LEAK CHECK:
If you unit is low on refrigerant (due to a leak), the compressor motor will be running
almost constantly, but it will sound Ok.

I bought a house with a Hunter # 44100A programmable thermostat but have no manual to program it from. How can I program it?


To change the time, press Hour once. Then press and hold Hour to until it reaches the correct one (pay attention to the AM/PM notation). Do the same with the Min and Day buttons. Press Return when done. (The thermostat will leave return to the normal mode after 10 seconds without a button press.)

Now to set the program, set the switch to heat or cool depending on which you want to program first. Press Prog (this will program M-F settings) then press and hold Hour until the time you want Prog 1 to start. Press the Up or Down arrows to get to the temperature you want to reach and stay for this period. Press Prog again and use the Hour/Min/Up/Down keys to set the time and temperature for next period. Repeat for program 3 and 4 for weekdays. Press Prog again to do the same thing for the 4 possible weekend program segments. Any time left at 0:00 results in a program being skipped.

Press Prog to set the Program. These settings will not take effect until the next time change in the program. You can review the settings by pressing Prog and scrolling through the settings.

Change the switch to the other setting and repeat the programming if your system has both AC and heat.

If you want to press the AutoProg button the thermostat will use preset times and temperatures. For Heating that is 5 am 68, 7 am 60, 3 pm 68, 10 pm 62. For cooling it is 5 am 78, 7 am 85, 3 pm 78, 10 pm 82.

For more information, you can get the manual from Hunter: http://www.hunterfan.com/Support/Manuals-and-Parts-Guides/ , just enter the model number in the Search line.

I hope this helps.
