Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Amana Prestige II -- breaks down every once or twice a year.

Hi, Im hoping someone could shed some light on my problem. I have an Amana prestige II unit in our home and it breaks down. Always when we need it the most. The hottest and coldest times of the year.

Its less than 4 yrs old.

Usually the "surface ignitor" in my attic is replaced. It has been replaced 3 times.

The last time a big capacitor was changed out in the ac unit itself outside the house(cost me 300$)

In the summer the ac stops the winter the heater goes out. Usually after being on for long periods of time.

    Amana Prestige II heat just went away. Cool blows fine. About to call a tech to the house... I will keep you posted!

    I know that this is an old post, but my cooling fan just stopped on my Amana Prestige 2. I am not sure if it is the Capistor or the motor. Could you provide a place to buy the parts?

    I just had the same problem. Well, not the frequency as the first poster reports. The compressor was running but the fan wasn't turning. I had a friend in the AC business come take a look. He said the problem was the fan itself but recommended we change the capacitor as well. He didn't have the correct parts on his truck so will come back to replace.

If you have to press the vehicle's door lock AND the remote starter button...something is definitely wrong with the installation. If the prestige is a one button unit, try pressing the button twice within two seconds to start vehicle (press...thousand one, release, press...thousand two,release) this is the default setting.

If it is an add on remote starter, then you would use the factory remote to start it. If using the factory remote to start there are a couple of combinations to start it. Try lock, unlock,lock for Prestige/Pursuit models. If Directed models, try lock, lock or lock, lock, lock. If its a GM remote starter, press lock and then hold the remote starter button(circle with arrow.

You did not mention the year/make/model of your vehicle but, the issue appears to be the factory alarm. The installer failed to make the connection. If you intend to make the connection yourself I would need information pertaining to the vehicle. The (-) pulse before start wire for Prestige remote starters is black with a blue stripe. It is in a 4 pin connector at the module. This wire can be used to disarm the factory alarm before the remote start sequence.

Good noon! I have an Amana prestige II, but the fan for working compressor keeps running out of door when fan stop in the attic.

This sounds like your contactor is fused shut. Normally the contactor disengages when your unit turns off, but if the unit is getting older and runs for long lengths of time the metal will actually meld together. I would have someone replace the contact switch. Good luck
