Furnice air blows, but my ac unit outside want cut on


if the inside unit is running but the outside unit isn't - I would check the fuses or breaker. I suspect you have a blown fuse or a tripped breaker.
What is also possible is that the 'low voltage' thermostat wire (coming from the thermostat inside the house) has been cut - possibly by a lawn mower or weed eater - or chewed into by a dog.
If this is the case - you easily splice (with all power off) the wires back together using the color of the individual wires.

Dogs chewed up wiring from house to outside ac don't know what goes where


Wires used in AC for power are of different color like red for (+) black for (-) and green for (N). You can slice the rubber (about half inch) ends of broken wires and then reattach them matching the color, like red to red, black to black and so on. After that apply insulation tape on the joints. Make sure you switch off the power before you do all this work. If you are unsure, please call the AC service center and they will send an electrician to fix this.

My dog chewed my wires,how or where can i fix it?


Well depending on where the dog chewed the wires. If you have 2 or however many internal wires, as well as a decent length of wire If you have 3 - 6 inches that you can work with I would suggest the following. Take and individualize the colors of wire on both ends. Strip about an inch and a half long peice of wire with either a wire stripper or carefully with a needle nose plyers. After that match the color wire on the other half and twist them together. Once you have the colors all matched use electrical tape and seperate each color with a layer or two of tape. Then tape it all together. Hope this helps you out. happy gaming

The dog chewed the wiring to the condesor outside. i re wired and now the furnace turns on but not the a/c unit ouside?


Hi, well you have 1/2 of it right. Recheck the wiring and wire it color to color as you are not getting 24 volts to the condenser. If you have a gas furnace and not a heat pump you will only need 2- wires to run the outdoor unit, red and yellow. Make sure the dog didn't chew through another section also.

Can't get my programable thermostat


when the dog chewed on the wires were there any bare spots where the wires could touch one another, if so the transformer is is probably bad or if there's a fuse in the 24 volt line then it is bad.

No spark


If the dog chewed up the coil wire you will need a new coil. How did the dog GET to the wiring? Did you let the dog live? The wires are color coded. Splice the wires color to color. Depending on how badly the dog tore up the wires, you may want to get a new, (or used) wiring harness and re-wire the bike following the pattern of the existing wiring.

That wire is to your thermostat which of course turns the A/C on/off. One thing you can do is to splice the wire back together w/ small wire nuts (available at hardware store or wal-mart, and just hook it up color to color and then tape w/ electrical tape. Make sure you turn your breaker off and turn off the thermostat control.
