Heater coil has possibly burnt out. his coil is located rightr behing the front coil of the a/c You need to pull the unit from its sleeve and look inside behind the a/c coil and there it is. It looks like the inside of a toaster the elements should be incased in a metal box. What causes the burn out is 1 poor air flow over coils due to dirty filter or dirty coil, 2 dust build up, the minute particals the get through the unit 's filter and build up over time causing burnout, 3 possible high limit switch on the coil housing itself. This switch prevents the heater from overheating and causing a fire. Have this look at by a tech the cost incurred isn't really that much.

Good luck on your repair hope this helped

My Honeywell thermostat isnt keeping my house cool even though the temp is set to 69. Currently 90 degrees in here


Its probably not the thermostat. The air conditioner may be stuck on heating mode. If its a reverse cycle, the reversing valve may be jammed so even when the thermostat is calling for cold air, it stays on heat. If the machine is on heating mode, it should be blowing cold air out of the outdoor unit of the air con. If its on cooling mode, the outdoor should be blowing hot air.

LG LP0711WNR blows cold air for a few minutes, then starts blowing warm air. It will start blowing cold air again if I wait several minutes. Or if I turn it off and wait a few minutes it will blow c


I just experienced this problem myself. What helped me was cleaning out the lint trap. My guess is that the until sucks in air through there, then conditions it. Blows the cold air out the top, and hot air out the tube. When it can't suck a decent amount of air in, the condenser can only condense so much of that limited amount of air. When it runs out, the unit just runs the fan until enough air has been condensed.

My lint trap was filthy, hadnt Bern cleaned in years. Soon as I popped it off, the unit started belching out cold air nonstop. Clean your lint traps! Don't make my mistake!

I have a 2000 pontiac grand prix with a digital climate control system. The heat quit working, it doesn't blow out any heat. Now that it is warm outside the air stopped blowing out any air. The digital temperature on the climate control is not correct. When it states that it is below 30 degrees on the ext and it is warm outside the air wont be cold. Once it starts going above 30 degrees the air gets colder. Today the blower stop working all together. Was told it maybe the climate control unit was bad. You can hear the door opening/shutting when you switch the temp from cold to hot. But there was no heat blowing out whatsoever in the winter time. Could you please give me your opinion on whether or not it is the climate control unit or something else?

Uotside unit blowing cool air but hot on the inside


It sounds like you have a unit called a heat pump. When a heat pump unit is in cooling mode the outside unit blows hot air and the inside unit blows cold air. If the outside unit is blowing cold then the indoor unit is most likely blowing room temperature or warm air. It sounds like the thermostat could be controlling incorrectly or you could have a failed reversing valve which is the device that switches the unit from heating to cooling mode.
