I have a new Tork 1102 timer 240V. It works dial rotates clicks on and off but loses four hours in a 24 hour period what is wrong.


The timer motor is syncronous and meant to run on 208-277 Volt, 60 cycles per second. It appears that you have 50 cycle current running it, which would result in a 4 hour loss in every 24 hour period. There is no adjustment for this.

Why does the inside unit only blow for a short period then die?


The blower motor or controls to it are at fault. The unit may need cleaning. Call a tech! There's so many reasons you are having trouble. Its hard to tell without looking/troubleshooting. About the only thing you can check is your air filter or the indoor coil, if you can see the air entering side, to see if its covered by debris. If the unit runs for an hour and stops, it may be a simple part. But it may end up being expensive if it persists.

If it has never worked maybe your speaker connections are shorting.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it '*****'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as a root cause for intermittent shutdown.

Just for GP, disable the auto shut down.

I just got a new Honeywell Utility Pro Thermostat. The digital temperature gauge seems very sensitive which results in the unit turning the furnace on and off for very short periods; much shorter than my...


Sounds like you also have a high efficiency furnace like mine.
Here is a procedure to slow down the number of cycles you are experiencing.
1. press System
2. press and hold buttons 3 and 5 on the bottom of the screen. (there should be 7 buttons displayed)
3. set code to 240
4. change setting to 3 for 3 cycles per hour. (your thermostat probably shows a higher number, probably 5? That is why your unit is cycling so often).

I have a Lennox model CB19-51-1P air handling unit with HP19-511-1P compressor heat pump unit. I just turned the heat on for the first time this season. And I am getting low heat volume. The heat pump...


first thing you need to check is if the reversing valve is working you maybe running your A/C with the heat strips on depends on the t-stat your using some heat pumps will bring the strips on with a high degree difference in setting and room temp .

1- turn t-stat to heat set temp 10 degrees above room temp if you have a programable t-stat it will have a time delay on it allow to for the outdoor unit to come on 2 to 5 minute usually .
2- walk around to the outdoor unit when it comes on feel the big line the insulated one and see if it is hot or cold let it run for a 5 minutes peel back the insulation and gently grab the line with your hand it maybe real hot so be careful if this line is hot then your heat pumps is working mechanically and if it is just warm then you may need the charge topped off

there are so many different option's from this point i will need to know the findings of this test first thanks : Michael

Defrost cycles needlessly for extended time period


Without knowing what the problem was with the old board, you're not going to be able to figure much out, I don't think.

Did you check that temperature sensor I mentioned? You will have to pull the top off to get access to it. Normally found connected to one of the tubes for the coil, silver in color, with 2 wires connected to it, near the bottom of the base of the unit.

How can I determine if the ac is removing the correct amount of moisture from the air?


tech answer is:3 pints of water per hour per 1 ton of cooling.
General rule of thumb is 20-25% of the capacity of the unit is devoted to dehumidifying.
If unit runs constantly and the temp really does not seem to be effected, unit is probably too small. If unit runs and cycles off frequently, i.e. short run times, and humidity is high, unit is too big.

Hope this helps

AC is off but compressor cycles periodically


most likely your compressor contact is stuck closed, and will need to be replaced. if the fan also runs when the compressor comes on you may have a short between the t-stat and unit. hope this helps.
