Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have an almost 2 yr old 4 ton, Carrier a/c. Performance Series Fan Coils. After no use for approx 2 weeks, when the a/c is turned on, I get a very bad odor that vanishes in a couple minutes. Opened the unit, there is some standing water in the bottom pan. Also, the galvanized steel (I think) coil end caps are pretty heavily rusted. Any comments? Thanks I couldn't find a category, so choosed "fridge".

    Sorry for the response delay, Candyh.

    Is your solution for the odor or rust or both? Is the coke "poured" over the coils or rustewd endcaps?

I have a new home 1 yr and when the furnace kicks in, I am assuming the fan it makes a noise but as soon as the heat starts the noise is gone, could this be the furnace blower

Check by turning the unit off and turn the fan to on. Do you hear the noise now? The noise your hearing could be coming from your combustion fan assembly instead. Newer furnaces have a in-shot burner and are nosier than the old style of heater.
