Why doesn't remote control communicate with Fischer heat pump mini split system


It sounds like the batteries leaked and oxidized the terminals. If you cannot get them clean enough then I would suggest getting a new reomote from the manafacturer.

Tip

A Great Tip For Saving Money


While everyone usually remembers to change their AC and Heater filters, no one thinks about cleaning the heating or cooling outdoor coil. If you have an outdoor unit for heating or cooling, those coils need to be clean too!!

The principle of an HVAC unit is to remove heat or cold from your home to make sure you have a comfortable temperature inside.

If you have a gas furnace, your good to go in the winter. Make sure you change your filter every month and you should be able to keep your home at an nice temperature for you and your family. BUT, if you have an air conditioning unit hooked up to cool your house in the spring and summer, you need to do a little maintenance every spring to make sure you get the most out of your unit and save money. The same principle works for a heat pump, so i'll break it down for each unit.

1. An air conditioning unit that has a gas heater works just like it sounds. In the winter, your thermostat will tell the heater to turn on. You will have your burner running until the fan switch in the heat exchanger gets to the right temperature to turn the fan on. This is so you don't have cold air circulating through the house. Cooling on the other hand works a little different. If your thermostat calls for cooling, your fan will turn on right away and your condensing unit outside will turn on. What you AC is doing is removing heat inside the house and putting it somewhere else. That;s where your condensing unit comes in. The heat you removed inside the house is transferred outside where it is compressed and cooled through the use of the outdoor fan.

Now, imagine if this outdoor unit has dirty coil. You are no longer able to remove the heat from the house because it's not able to be removed because of a dirty coil. This means a huge loss in cooling capacity, higher running amperage on the compressor, and your electric bill being alot larger than it needs to be. I'll have the solution after I address the heat pump.

2. Now, the heat pump. It is basically an air conditioning unit that can reverse. In the summer, the outdoor unit will blow hot because of the heat it removed in the house. In the winter, the outdoor unit will be blowing cold because it is using the heat outdoors to add heat into your house. While this sounds weird, it's engineering at it's best. In the winter, heat is able to be removed from very low temperatures and your able to transfer heat into the house because you have a compressor in your unit. It does what it says. It takes a low pressure-low temperature refrigerant and compresses it into a high pressure-high temperature refrigerant.

Now, getting to the coils of both units. You need to clean the outdoor coil on both units every spring to make sure you have a clean coil. In the long run, this will allow the unit to expell the heat gained from the house and in the long run will add life to your compressor and save you money.

On the heat pump, you'll also need to clean the coil every fall. This is because if you don't, you could have a problem with freezing your outdoor coil. If you can't remove the heat from indoors, you will slowly turn your outdoor coil into an icemaker!!

So, based on what you have, turn the power off to your outdoor unit. Spray very good with a degreaser such as simple green and let it sit for about a half an hour. Then, grab your hose and wash out the coil. You'll be amazed what comes out. Let it sit for a coup0le hours to dry out, then turn the unit on.

This will not only extend the life of your compressor, it will also save you money in the long run!!

Why does my bosch 25e ingnite then blows out repeatedly and occasionally stays on if i turn tap on and off and on for abit.


Does the unit have a flame sensor? Check manual. Flame sensors get corroded and need cleaned or replaced. I have had success cleaning them but when you can buy a new flame sensor

It heats for a minute or two and then stops heating.


The heater overload switch is sensing an over heating problem and is turning the unit OFF. It may be as simple as a clogged heating element. Over time they do become clogged with dust, lint, pet hair, etc. This is because the air intake for the heating element is a floor level. So, whatever is floating in the household air gets sucked into the heating element when the fan is ON. Using a vacuum with a hose and brush attachment works well in cleaning the heater element. Be sure the unit is OFF & unplugged, before attempting this. You may be able to access the heating element thru the lower louvered door. Or consult your Owner's Manual regarding the cleaning of the unit.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

We have a 2005 Country Coach Allure with 3 Dometic rooftop air conditioner/heat pumps. One of the units will come on start to cool then quickly turn to heat then cool then heat. What could the problem...


Hi; Sounds like a problem with the tstat or the defrost sensor. Also have these units been cleaned yearly. Also if the differential between heat and cool is small this will cause the unit to cool then heat due to the low differential at the tstat...alpharome416

The Amana air conditioner is not getting cold.


when is it the last time you cleaned the unit and changed the filters? it may be working good but you need to maintain the unit...clean all filters and see if you can vacum alll parts especially the condensing unit (you may need air pressure) can you move the unit to outside so you can clean it good? if you can use air or water pressur to clean it after you cover the lectrical parts. Good luck. (save your money this unit need cleaning only)

Notebook fan is not running and unit is getting hot


the fan vanes are clogged, this may happen if you have pets or live in a humid region.
take the unit apart and remove the heat sink from the laptop, get some arctic ice silicone from a computer store and apply an amount equal to that of a piece of rice to the processor (after first cleaning of the residue on the heat sink), clean the cooling vanes out and replace the heat sink, put the unit back together and the unit should not overheat again.
The silicone will take a while to solidify to the optimum.
