Sounds like a bad thermostat. First test it by making a "jumper" cable. 2 alligator clips connected by a wire.(wear rubber gloves to prevent shock) Remove the cover to expose the wiring. Touch one end to the R- RED terminal and the other to the Y-YELLOW terminal. Your A/C should kick on. If your A/C works the thermostat is the problem. Buy another at the hardware store. BEFORE you replace it cut power from the breaker box. (Keep the gloves on just in case.) Their are 4 terminals on the thermostat with color coded wires attached. R-Red, W-White, Y-Yellow, G-Green. Mount the new thermostat replace wires and restore power. If this solves your problem great; If not call a HVAC tech. Good Luck

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.

Furnance not heating


Make sure that the thermostat is set for the proper medium that you are using being gas or electric. Inside the cover of the thermostat should be a setting for either eletrical heat or gas heat. Set this switch for what your system is G for gas or E for eletric. This may solve your problem. Good Luck hope this helped you some

97 Ford Econoline air conditioning and vent settings blowing hot


I know from experience that if the coolant is to low ( not just the freon levels in the compresor but the antifreeze/coolant level as well) the AC system will not cool and will blow hot. Check the coolant Antifreeze and freon levels, even with the Coolant being a little low my 1998 Ford E150 Van will blow hot. After you have ruled out of these possibilities and the chance it is the thermostat most likely the problem is what Ford calls the "Flap" it controls the air flow through the vent system when you switch from Heat to AC. When the Flap is working it closes off one systems air flow so as to not interfere with the current climate selection.
