Hello
Tons of cooling is in btus.12000 btus is one ton,24000 is 2 tons.

Somewhere on your unit is the cooling capacity in btus,take that number and divide it by 12000.

Usually a 2000 sf house will need 3 to 4 tons of cooling,more is always good.

Im sending a link to do an easy calculation that should be helpful.

### I need to know the seer number for an air handler. I'd

On the air handler take the top panel off, look to the left on the inside, this will give you general information on the unit on a stampede plate. This will
give you the date of manufactuer as well.

On the outdoor unit, there is a stamped plate on the
condensing unit. Should have year of manufactuer, it
should also say how many pounds of freon should be
in it. The Model number is what you need to know
to find out how big it is.

024=24,000 BTU= 2ton unit
030=30,000 BTU=2 1/2ton
036=36,000 BTU=3ton
040=40,000BTU= 3 1/2ton
and so on.

My guess is that it is an older unit and since I have
been installling units since 1995 I have only known
any older units to be at least a 10 SEER and no more.

### My icemaker is making huge chunks of ice in bin

You will need to replace the termination thermostat. What sounds like is happening is. Every 8 to 10 hr. your freezer goes into defrost for a set period of time. There is a termination thermostat that senses the temp at you evaporator coil in you freezer. When you heaters come on they defrost the ice from your coil. once the termination thermostat senses the temp has gotten to a preset degree, it cuts the power to the heaters. This keeps the heaters from staying on the whole period and making your freezer warm. After the pre set time period the timer turns the compressor back on. What it sounds like is happening is the termination thermostat is not opening, cutting the heaters off. By not doing so, it's letting your freezer get above freezing, melting your ice some. When the timer advances into cooling again it freezes your ice together. I would say it's your water valve leaking but that would make large pieces of ice that the ice maker has trouble dumping and also sometimes a large chunk that does not look like cubs. That would also eventually freeze the inlet tube closed..

### The bin on my ice maker forms big chunks of ice

check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice, OR cause the thaw-freeze cycle resulting in chunks. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.
