Question about Amana Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

My Amana unit ARUF182416BA remains always on with the heater on, the only way to disconnect is with breaker. For sure the problem is not thermostat since I switch it with the unit downstairs and is working properly there.

I would suggest getting a service tec to help you, this is an air handler and can be configured many different ways. From what I gather the heat is a different source, this just moves air or that is what I can find on it.

AC chronotherm IV plus thermostat has no display and AC has gone off and will not come back on.

Either the 5 amp fuse is blown on the indoor unit, transformer is bad or float switch is tripped.

Amana dryer not heating, replaced Thermal Cut off, High limit thermostat and Thermal Fuse, and new breakers in fuse panel

Hello, Before you replaced all those parts did you check each with a multimeter by performing an ohms test or measuring for continuity? By doing this it would tell if any of the parts that you had replaced were at fault. You can also conduct the same test on the heater as well. when performing any ohms or continuity test make sure the unit is unplugged and that you also unplug the part as well from the wires that are connected to it. I await your reply if you have any other questions. Thank you

AC unit will not turn on and will not cool down

The first thing you want to check is all your breakers and disconnects. You should have 2 breakers in your breaker panel, one that runs unit inside and one that runs unit outside. Turn both off and then back on to make sure they are not tripped. Next go to your unit inside and you want to look for a breaker on the unit and/or a disconnect somwwhere in the immediate area. If it is a breaker, reset that, If it is a disconnect, you have a lever on it or, it may have a pull out piece your going to want to pull out and inspect to make sure it doesn't look burnt. It should say "on" on it and maybe an arrow but when properly installed, you should be able to read "on" right side up not upside down. Next, you want to go to the unit outside. It should have a disconnect of the same fashion, so check it also. At this point make sure your thermostat in in the "on" or "auto", auto would be the right setting but, does the unit run? If so, is the unit outside running as well. If only the inside unit runs, you either have a bad thermostat or a bad capacitor or wire in the unit outside, it could be other things with the unit outside but, these are common items. If everything runs, and it is still not cool, again, the thermostat could be bad or it may be time for a charge. Make sure you filter is clean as well because limited air flow acn cause the unit to freeze up and not work.

I have a Rheemglas 250 litre electric hot water system. It seems to have stopped working. Is there anything I can try to get it working again? Otherwise I'll need a technician but hoping it's...

Make sure you have power to unit. Check the breaker in your breaker panel and look around unit for a timer or disconnect that may be having problems. I don't know if you are electrically inclined so if you are scared to take off front panel, don't do so. If you believe your breakers and/or any disconnects etc., are on and working, you can remove the screws holding the inspection panel on and press the reset button on the thermostat. There may be insulation covering the thermostat. The thermostat should have a plastic cover on it shielding the live wires while making it possible to press the reset switch. Again, if you are electrically inclined, you can check for power at the thermostat. These are the simple things you can check. If you reset the button, within about 3 to 5 minutes, you should here noise from inside the unit if it is working.

My 40 gallon whirlpool electric water heater stopped working today

The thermostat (either the upper or lower if it has two thermostats) has an integral circuit breaker that trips if a problem occurs. First try resetting the breaker. Look for a red button in the middle of the thermostat (which will most likely be behind a metal panel. BE SURE to shut of the breaker in the electrical panel that serves the water heater.

The water heater should start to heat up if the thermostat breaker doesn't trip right away. However, if the breaker on the thermostat trips again at any time, there is most likely a short in the thermostat and it needs to be replaced.

They two thermostats are not identical. The upper unit typically has three wire connections while the lower unit only has two.
If you find that one of the units must be replaced, ensure that you get the proper replacement. Then, you should mark the wires and their connection points and then disconnect them. The thermostat can then be slid out of the clasp that holds it to the tank. Slide the replacement in and reconnect the wires and ensure that they are tight.

You should complete your water heater thermostat replacement by turning the power to the unit back on. Observe the proper operation of the water heater and ensure that the thermostat is set at the desired temperature. (The temperature should normally be set at 120 degrees to save energy and avoid burns.)

Only you know your level of ability. Water heaters are high voltage and draw a high amp load. If you feel you cannot safely perform this work, do not attempt it. Call a plumber instead.

Hope this helps.

Everytime my central air unit kicks on my circuit breaker trips. It didn't do this last year or even earlier this year

A circuit breaker 'tripping' everytime the AC unit kicks on 'most always' indicates a direct short (somewhere in the condensing unit), although it is possible that the breaker itself is bad - (but not likely).

Usually the cause of this 'short' will be - either the condenser motor in the condensing unit (outside unit) or the compressor - also in the condensing unit.

If you're mechanically inclined - and "very careful" around electricity - there is a fairly simple way to find out which component is causing the short.

Step 1 - Make sure the condensing unit (outside unit) is completely disconnected (electrically) , i.e. pull the fuses/turn off circuit breaker on outside unit and turn off thermostat.

Step 2 - disconnect the condenser motor (this is the outside fan motor). Note: when you disconnect the wires of the condenser motor "be sure" you mark/write their location, and wrap them in electric tape.

Step 3 - start the AC unit. If the breaker trips again you can pretty much rest assured it's the compressor that is shorted.

To prove it (without a doubt) - go to next step.

Step 4 - "be sure circuit breaker and thermostat is turned off" - and - 'reconnect' the condenser motor - and - then disconnect the compressor wires (mark wires and tape them).

Step 5 - Start AC.

If breaker doesn't trip - you know it's the compressor that is shorted.

If breaker 'does' trip again - then it's possible the breaker itself is bad (not likely) or there is a 'short' in the condensing unit's "wiring" somewhere (not likely).

My guess is that either the condenser motor or compressor is shorted.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck!

I have an Amana PBE12 Thru-Wall AC/Heater for my Florida Room. The unit will run for a short time before it trips the circuit breaker. Any ideas?

is the breaker large enough for the unit? this could be the compressor locking up if if it a heat pump style, or sticking thermostat..

Thermostat has no power heater not working

Make sure the powr is on to the unit.
There should be a disconnect at the airhandler/furnace.

If it's a breaker, try flipping it off then on. If fuses, check the fuses.

Make sure you are actually getting power to the unit itself first.

If you are, you could have a bad transformer or low voltage fuse on the board is bad.

Does your T-stat have batteries? if so, replace them.

Check these items first, then we can go from there.
