Money can fix everything in life.

You can't get impatient with a/conditioners.

Put the a/c to cooling, make sure the set temp is below the indoor air temp(not just one degree either...way down) and give it 5 to 15 minutes.

There are anticycling devices (safeties on modern a/conditioners) that prevent them from burning up.

You'll never mentioned if you are in house or a commercial building(at work).Commercial building stats may be off ine on a built in timer.

if the breaker has tripped the test button won't do anything ,, for the breaker to trip something down stream of it is causing this to happen,, check all the switches and or receptacles in the circuit that are controlled by this breaker, 3 types of line problems cause tripping,, ground to line, Line to line, and line to neutral. in this ,, also consider that extension cords, faulty appliances , ( lamps, radios, anything plugged in with a feedback short ) will cause the breaker to trip. even a nail to hang a picture that pierced the wire can cause this, add to that , a AFCI breaker will trip much more easily than one thats not, or even a GFI breaker, , try this, if you have the knowledge to do electrical work in a panel, if not get someone who is, switch the tripping breaker with another one of the same value, ( in this case 15 amp) see if the one you put in place of the one thats giving you problems trips. If it doesn't, you have a weak or bad breaker, so just replace that one, if it does, your going to have to trace out that entire circuit to find the reason for the feed back into the panel

Washer won't turn on


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Check that the washer supply is OK using another item - a kettle for instance. If it's not check your breakers/fuses. Reset/replace if necessary and if the same thing happens, or if there was nothing wrong with the breakers/fuses in the first place, sorry but with such a fault it is impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what could be wrong with your washer. It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB
.
I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Washer won't start


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

From your comment 'washer won't start' I am assuming that there is no power indication i.e. no lights/LED's?
Check that the washer supply is OK using another item - a kettle for instance. If it's not check your breakers/fuses. Reset/replace if necessary and if the same thing happens, or if there was nothing wrong with the breakers/fuses in the first place, sorry but with such a fault it is extremely difficult for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what could be wrong with your washer. It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB.

Plug the new fan motor, nothing


Sounds as if the Fan Switch may also be faulty. Or the new fan motor is defective. Is the flame function on the electric fireplace working? If the flame function is working, than obviously the fault is either in the fan switch or the new fan motor.

If the motor has a regular receptacle type plug on the end of the cord, try plugging it directly to a wall outlet and see if it works. If you're able to do that, then the problem is in the fireplace's fan switch or in the wiring circuitry going to the fan motor. Perhaps, this is what was wrong all along and not the fan motor, itself.

If nothing is working, check the wall receptacle that the fireplace is plugged into, by plugging in an electric lamp. If the lamp won't turn on, then there's a circuit breaker tripped in your homes circuit breaker panel. Check the circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker and with nothing plugged into the offending receptacle, reset the breaker. Plug the fireplace back into the receptacle, turn it on and see if it trips the circuit breaker. If it does, there's an electrical short some where in the fireplace. Look for burned or frayed wiring, as well as bad connections.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

Power turns on but nothing else turns on, just the display screen. is there an easy fix ie fuse or something?


CHECK BREAKER AT MAIN BOX , SHUT OFF BREAKER ALL THE WAY OFF AND BACK ON. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE BLOWER WHEN YOU TURN FAN SWITCH TO ON THEN YOU STIIL HAVE NO POWER TO UNIT . GO TO OUT SIDE UNIT ON GROUND AND PULL OUT DISCONNECT FUSES AND TEST THEM OUT OF FUSE HOLDER LIKE AUTO FUSES. IF UNIT IS ON ROOF SHOULD HAVE FUSES UP ON ROOF IN 6  X4 GRAY BOX. SHUT OFF BREAKER FIRST BEFORE FUSE TEST. IF FUSES OK AND BREAKER OK THAN YOU MIGHT HAVE BLOWN TRANSFORMER.

Ac unit wont start


Sounds like a classic case of a burnt/pitted compressor contactor. The contacts can get pitted and sometimes burnt. This can cause them to stick and the unit will not shut off unless you shut off the circuit breaker. When you shut off the circuit breaker, the contacts would have cooled down which could have led to the problem you are now experiencing......will not come on. Open up the electrical box. Look near the bottom for a brown or black part with the wires from your circuit breaker wired directly to it. This is your contactor. In the center is the piece that moves up and down to allow the electricity to go to your compressor and fan motor when there is a call for cooling. Check to see if it looks burnt or otherwise damaged.

Pushmatic breaker keeps tripping everytime I hit


You have it shorted out somewhere along the line. If it is a light switch you are switching, what have you done lately to make this trip? Anything? You might have a bad breaker. You can check it by shutting off the power, pull the wire out of the tripping breaker, put it in another breaker, turn the power back on, switch the breaker on, then hit the switch and see what happens. If it snaps off, it is not the breaker, but the switch, the wires in the box, or the lights, or something along the line, you will have to check each one. New construction has made all lights and all receptacles separate, so if your house is old, you might be looking at receptacles too. Check anything plugged in to an outlet, make sure there is nothing shorting. Hope this helps.
