Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I am renting a unit and just moved into a brand

I am renting and just moved into a brand new unit. I have been advised that the heating unit is a Vulcan ILEC P320. The thermostat was working for the last two weeks and since last night has failed.
I can see the time at the top of the thermostat, however the on/off button (or other buttons) do not work. I do not have a manual for this unit to be able to troubleshoot the problem.
This unit must be under warranty and just wondering how the landlord can go about getting a replacement thermostat (if needed) as quickly as possible.
Thanks, Lisa

Renting and Paying the Gas Bill


This past week I changed out an old hot air furnace in a rental unit that made me question why the tenant did not go to the owner and offer to pay more rent in exchange for getting the furnace changed out sooner. If you are a renter that is paying the gas bill, then you need to think about this.
The hot air furnace was at least 60 years old. It had been coal fired furnace that was converted to gas many decades ago. The pilot light of this beast was more of a torch than a pilot light. When the thermostat called for heat the flame roared for 15 minutes before the exterior blower unit that was added when the furnace was converted to gas, started up to move air through the furnace and into the house.

As I was starting up the new unit, which took up less than 1/3 of the space of the old beast, the renter came and sat down on the basement steps looking on in amazement. How would that little thing make enough heat for the house? A few minutes later those questions were put to rest very quickly.

After starting the new furnace and burning off the oil that always smokes up the house a bit on a new startup the new little unit had the house warm as toast and was shutting down. Wow, that took less time than the old beast took to just warm up!

The renter related to me how that the old furnace cost over one hundred dollars a month just to run the pilot over the summer months. The wintertime heating bills were many times higher than that. The difference between the bills of the old unit and the bills that will be coming now will be unbelievable. A savings of 40-50% is not at all out of the question.

Now, if you are renting and are paying the bill to feed an old monster of a heating system, I suggest that you make a proposal to your landlord. Offer to pay a bit more rent in exchange for a new heating system. Not only will you decrease your gas bills enough to pay some extra rent and still come out ahead, but you will have the peace of mind that you have a safer heating system under the roof that you also live under.

Brand new microwave lights up plate turns around everything works except nothing heats up! Please advise!


If everything works, but no heat sounds like the magnetron circuit has failed. Since it is brand new, just take it back to the store and complaint that it does not work, and ask for a refund or replacement oven.

if you did not used heat sink paste between the heat sink and the cpu unit, that, will be you problem initially
the paste is used to exclude any air and gaps between the cpu back and the heat sink and makes a perfect heat transfer medium
cpu units will hit critical temps within seconds if the heat is not being transfered correctly

Tappan electric range, brand new - top heats up


Call the manufacturer and ask them what to do, they can advise you as to what to expect when unit operates and possible cause. Most ranges on broiler will have some heat transfer to top, but this sounds extreme

Microwave turntable is loud and clunky sounding.


If the unit is brand new as you say then it is covered under the warranty and the 800# for Bosch is in your paperwork that came with it.

It sounds like the glass platen (turntable) hub is either binding or else the drive mechanism itself either has a bad tooth on the main gear or tooth wheel. Some may still use a chain type drive mechanism as well.

If you call that 800 number - the customer service dept there will advise you as to what needs to happen next. It's possible they will either replace or repair at their expense.

Who installed the unit?

Let me know?

Best regards,

Frank
