Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Our dog chewed on some of the wires, which I've reattached before and had the thing work. This time they won't reconnect, though the unit itself can be run by pushing a button in the unit.

If this is a central unit and the button you refer to is on the outside condensing unit, the wiring is propbably not the issue, the manual reset button is generally a high pressure safety switch, when you reset it if it runs for a few minutes then shuts off again unit you can reset it, you probably need to wash your outdoor coil. (it may look clean from the outside and still be blocked from the inside) shut off the power, verify that power is off, remoave the top of the unit and wash with a hose from the inside of the coil to the outside, make sure you clean all ares of the coil, use the hose pressure to "push' any debris through the coil then rinse the outside, reassemble, let dry completely and then start the system

My acer aspire one notebook won't boot up.


Is the new cord/charger/transformer the EXACT same power specs? When your "dog ate your charger", it may have shorted out something in the Laptop? Was it plugged it when your dog ate it?

Laptop keyboard does not work after dog laid on computer


Tell dog to grab it's allowance, and buy you a new laptop

NO?

Then protest around the dog daily until it does

(No, you have to feed it)


[Hold the dog's chew toy for ransom. Chew on it a little bit so dog will get the message.
"Hey! Ain't kidding around here! Laptop or I keep this!" ]

OR,

Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
Press the Power On button, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds.
(And I mean 10. Count; 1001,..1002,..1003,...etc)

Let go of the Power On button. Do this procedure two more times.
Reinstall Battery, THEN reattach AC adapter to laptop, and THEN plug AC adapter into power.

WAIT 1 minute,....turn the laptop on.

What types of toys should be given to dogs that play for a long period of time?


If your dog is very playful and can keep itself busy for an hour or more a day, then you should give it rope and chew toys.

How can I keep my dog from chewing on her leash?


There are a few thingsyou can do to keep a dog from chewing on their leash. You could get a short leash so that it won'tbe comfortable to turn and bite it while you are walking. You can put some bitter apple or some otherunappealing substance (do not use hot sauce!). You can also simply train your dog through standard training methods notto bite her leash. Also, once you havefinished your walk, put the leash away immediately so that she knows it isn'tone of her playthings.b>

Hello,Yes there is a 3 amp blade fuse(same as in a car) in the blower unit,take off the door and it is plugged in to the(curcuit) board.Pull it out and slip a new one in.That will restore the control voltage.Your repair sounds correct.Some times there is a tiny button on the transformer itself (square box) that pops up instead of a fuse just push that in to reset it(if applys).

Our dog chewed through the wires that i believe run to the thermostat, tried to reconnect the wires and still not running, also tried new fuses and still nothing, just wondering if another part needed to...


shorting the wires usually just blows the fuse on the control board in the inside unit. BUT there is a chance the contactor coil was shorted out as well. Will the inside fan come on if placed in the ON position but the system switch in OFF ? If not check the transformer in the cabinet of inside unit.

The dog chewed the wiring to the condesor outside. i re wired and now the furnace turns on but not the a/c unit ouside?


Hi, well you have 1/2 of it right. Recheck the wiring and wire it color to color as you are not getting 24 volts to the condenser. If you have a gas furnace and not a heat pump you will only need 2- wires to run the outdoor unit, red and yellow. Make sure the dog didn't chew through another section also.

Can't get my programable thermostat


when the dog chewed on the wires were there any bare spots where the wires could touch one another, if so the transformer is is probably bad or if there's a fuse in the 24 volt line then it is bad.

That wire is to your thermostat which of course turns the A/C on/off. One thing you can do is to splice the wire back together w/ small wire nuts (available at hardware store or wal-mart, and just hook it up color to color and then tape w/ electrical tape. Make sure you turn your breaker off and turn off the thermostat control.
