Check your thermostat and mode selector setting, thermostat setting should be set at warmer and mode selector setting should be at low heat or hight this is applicable for manual unit.
If it is a remote control just set the remote to heat mode.

If the inside fan got loud because it developed mold, the only cure is to keep cleaning it.

SOURCE: central air conditioner doesn't cool

The capacitor is located inside the control panel on the outside unit. It is round or oval and silver in color.It runs the outdoor fan and the compressor both.
The terminals are marked= C, /F or fan/, H or herm. C-F-H.
The microfarad rating is printed on the capacitor. Make a color code wire diagram before removeing wires.
Disconnect power to the unit. Use a insulated screwdriver to short out the terminals on the capacitor before removing it.

SOURCE: A/C drain pan not draining.

The drain must have one and only one trap in it. A trap is where the pipe goes up then back down so that water is kept in a section of the pipe - will stop the air from blowing thru the drain and not letting the water drain - may not sound right but it is! I've seen this many times! Drain traps are not understood at all by the HVAC industry.

SOURCE: Kenmore DX1400 central air unit when running turns

Kenmore DX 1400 should be an ICP products central heat pump unit. As such, it will have the exact same charactoristics as the Tempstar, Comfortmaker, Heil or Arco air brands R410A, 14 SEER series of controls.

I am assuming when you say unit is shutting down that you mean only the outdoor unit, and the inside blower( air hanler / furnace? contiunues to blow.

First, there is a control in the outdoor unit called the "comfort alert module" this module closely monitors the compressors operation, as well as hi and lo pressure switches and amps of the compressor. If it senses a fault, in some cases a specific fault will cause the unit to shut down, it may not restart. The module has a set of lights. there is an index to translate the code faults by what color and timing of the flashes.

Secondly, there are several things that can cuase the result you have posted. Unit shutting down due to low pressure control could mean low freon charge, or freon restriction in the system. Both of these require a professional to look at the problem. if your installer put in an aftermarket time delay relay, this can cause the problem.

Last but not least, the rsult you are getting could be caused by a circuit board failure. heat pumps will have this.

End result, call a service company known for their ability to solve problems. Without more precise informaiton, the above suggestions are just avenues to look at. More information needed for a precise answer

My central vac unit does not turn off even when hose is disconnected. I have to unplug the motor unit in the garage to shut it off. What do you think the problem is? It is a 7 year old Electrolux


Possibly the power module. Or a short in the wiring. Take it to the local Aerus Electrolux store and have it checked by a service tech to be sure. The pm is a lot less expensive to replace than a whole cv.

We just moved in - the house is about 9 years old. I have a Eureka Mega Boss central vac - looks like model # is CV20220. 12.4 amps, 120 volts. Can't figure out what type of bags I need. Can you...


Well, for this unit you will need any of the following bags,

Eureka genuine Part# 90610
Eureka replacement (Central vac bag)
another genuine bag style called CV-1, and/or CV-2
Kenmore Central vac bags

Most of the bags there are available at your local vacuum shop, and sometimes even Sears. The Kenmore central vac bag is, can and will fit your Eureka Mega Boss. Prices range on these bags anywhere from $12-$20 for packages of 3. Generally you will replace a bag once every 3-4 months.

Good luck,
Mark

Water leakage, just started using since June.older 10 yrs +_ Marty Margolis


Hi!!
Make sure unit is tilted backwards about an inch so condensed water can drain in the back. Make sure drain hole is not plugged, if so, use a piece of wire to unplugged.
AC units have to be serviced at the beginning of summer every year or at least every other year . It will be cheaper to take unit to service shop than to have a HVAC Tech come to your house.
Good Luck!!

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Beam Central Vac may have more than a one year factory warranty and it sounds to me that you may have a bad relay switch the Central Vac, if you do it should be covered under the factory warranty. Otherwise, you may have a bad supervalves or a wire came loose, if the hose switch turns on the power nozzle then it may be a bad supervalve or a bad relay and to contact the installer or the manufacturer of Beam. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
