It is hard to say without knowing weather knowing if this is a milivolt or electronic heater. In ether case you can replace parts, just witch parts is the question. A milivolt heater the thermostat will be sold as a unit that screws onto the faceplate and has a temp probe that will snake around to the water header and slip into it. An electronic heater will have a thermister that will also go into the header and ether have wires that plug into it or wires connected to it that plug into the board. This is often the problem with these and are cheap and easy to fix. If it is not this then it will probally be the board but it will usually only go bad if it has gotten wet. As for where to get parts any pool store can get them if they don't have them on hand or go to your heaters web site and find a retailer through them. I hope this helps, good luck.

Frig stops cooling. freezer on bottom. frig is running just not cooling. made in 2008. we clean it let it set for 24 hr it cools again. is there a defrost heater that we can turn on, to solve this problem.

Hi, this model i believe has a calrod heater, and those usually dont go bad very often, its more than likely a bad defrost thermostat or control board, the thermostat is located in the freezer behind the back panel on the evaporator, the control board if it has one is going to be up in the control panel by the the thermostat, if it doesnt have a control board it will have a timer, I would change the timer and the thermostat in that case. It is also possible you have a bad heater which is also located in the freezer behind the back panel, under the evaporator, If you know how to use a meter you check this heater with an ohm meter. Let me know if you need further assistance.

We put in a new baseboard heater thermostat a couple of years ago in our 20 yr. old apartment. When we turned it on yesterday, it shorted and we no longer have any heat coming from the baseboard. Do we...

I have base board heaters in each room and each with a thermostat and hooked to a controller. The controllers activate the heat in the base board heaters. I believe this is how it works. When you activate the thermostat, it sends a message to the controller that sends a message to the base board for heat.
The controllers are Singers. Prbkem 2:. When I turn down the thermostat (to off), I still get heat in the base board heaters. WHY.
I was going to get rid off the controllers and thermostats and buy new base board heaters at Home Depot. The thermostats are on the base board heaters. Will this work.

Take a jumper and jump between the two wires going to the R and W terminals. Now you have eliminated the thermostat, if the heater starts, you have a bad thermostat. If it continues to not start, take that jumper and jump out the wires at the furnace that went to the R and W terminals of the thermostat. They will either attach to the gas valve or a control board. If the unit starts, you have a bad thermostat wire. If it continues to not start, you will need a technician.

Mr. Heater Natural Gas Garage Heater - 45,000 BTU. Power 120 volt and 24 volt good. Thermostat calling for heat, but nothing happening??

Check for a fuse either in-line or on the circuit board. There should be 24 volts going to the thermostat. If not, you have either a bad transformer or a bad thermostat wire. Jump out the terminals that the thermostat wires are connected to. This should force the unit to fire. If not, bad circuit board.

My Goodman furnace wont light.

Open up the unit to get to the control board. Make a short jumper wire and disconnect the wires going to R and W terminals on the board. Connect the jumper to R and W. Depress the door safety switch. The circuit board should indicate a call for heat and the furnace should start. If it doesn't, look for a fuse that may have blown either on the circuit board or in the wiring. If the unit started by jumping the W and R but does not when you reconnect the thermostat, you either have a bad thermostat or a bad thermostat wire.

Compressor on sxd20tw wont shut off. just cleaned

How to check everything
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

Air does not work

hi! there, no matter what it is,so heater is the problem and replace the capacitor of fan that's it,what about the thermostat,you gonna check also your thermostat, if thermostat is deactivated the source going to your fan motor is also cut off,check resistance if there is does you know if cacitor is busted so you also know how to work on it,so use your multitester if thermostat is good,go to control panel board and check if theres power source on the terminal of fan motor,if there is you have problem on fan motor check thr resistance of fan motor if busted replace,if good isolate the source fan terminal to control panel board if there is a relay holding supply check the contactor point.replace,check also the heating element,doing this should done by cetified a/c tech.take allnecessary precaution to avoid electric shock regards and have a nice day

Carrier electric furnace

what are you talking about. Turn the thermostat back up. It shouldn't matter what you set the thermostat too because it is just a switch that tells the temperature.

Furnace blower motor

I would check the "G" wire at the Thermostat and make sure that it has a solid connection. The other end screws on to a terminal in the furnace. Check this connection as well. This green(G) wire is what activates the 120v relay on the circuit board. You can test this by turning the thermostat to the off position and then jumping the 24v R terminal with the 24v G terminal at the furnace. if the fan comes on then the problem is in the thermostat wire or the thermostat itself.
