Question about Bryant Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a Bryant Heating/Cooling unit. Serial # 4698E18469, Model # 597CN042-D. The water pump that pumps condensate out was replaced last weekend. A couple days ago, we stopped getting air flow. I replaced the filter, but the house still isn't cooling. I think there is more air flow, but it's not cold air. I'm not certain how to check the condensor or even if this is the first place I should look. Any advice? Thank you for your help! Rena

Is the compressor motor running? The compressor is a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts. It is located inside the air conditioner at the center. Is it humming or making any kind of continuous noise or causing the lights to dim? If it is making a continuous noise, and your air conditioner is still not cooling at all, there may be a serious problem with one or more of these areas: Compressor Condenser Evaporator These items are not user serviceable. You will need to contact a qualified appliance repair technician to repair these components. If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the air conditioner there may be a problem in one or more of these areas: Compressor Overload and/or relay Thermostat (Open thermostat) Burnt wiring Bad selector switch Capacitor.

The condensing coils will always be on the "warm" side of the air conditioner. That is, on the side that faces outside of the room to be cooled. Air is drawn into the back of the air conditioner on the sides through vent slots and is blown directly out through the condenser coils. If the coils get clogged with lint, dust and dirt the cooling system cannot provide the cooling necessary. To clean the coils it will be necessary to remove the entire cover of the air conditioner or pull it out of the wall to gain access to the coils. They can be cleaned by blowing compressed air at them or by using a soft bristle brush to wipe the dirt off. It is important to also clean any dirt or lint build-up in the bottom of the air conditioner so the condensate water will be picked up by the condensing fan slinger properly.

Take care.

When condensate water pump must run in LG cassette unit.

There is 2 float switches inside the drain pan. One turns on the pump when water gets to a certain level, one shuts the system down if water gets up to that one.

I have a Bryant heating/cooling w/ heat pump - E3 error on thermostat and the house is 61 degrees and smells of burnt air

I asked Mr. Google " carrier e3 error code", and I found this.

The outdoor thermostat is in error, not connected, or shorted out. This code is displayed only if auxiliary heat and/or cool lockout feature is enabled.

What this means is that your o.d. unit has a component failure. The smeel you have inside is probably you electric heat elements that are energized. And if they haven't been energized in a while, its burning off some debris.

My Bryant air handler with V coil is dripping condensation outside of drain pan and onto my return plenum. I have to keep a bowl to collect the condensation. Pan not clogged and refrigerant ok. Con

Either the coil pan is cracked, or the coils are not set properly. if coil pan is cracked, you have two options, Replace the coil, or get a condensate pump. The condesate pump is a temporary fix because some water would stay in the secondary pan and eventually rust it out, causing damage to whatever is below it, which is usually your ceiling.

Coolant level keeps dropping and fan shays on after the engine is switched off

this could indicate a leak, you may want to check the pressure, I would suggest upgrading you liquid cooling system to something that includes a condenser. You can get these systems now for the same price as Water cooling systems were when they first came out. Condensed Cooling systems are cheap as chips considering they used to go for over 800 now you can pick them up for between 150 and 300 Water cooling systems have a top price mark of 150 while liquid cooling systems have a top price of 160

Condensed Cooling systems are reliable, compact and will keep your computer cool is a fridge, I have a Computer with a Condensed Cooling system in it, I have a custom built compartment on the side of the case were I cool my drinks. The condenser is a sealed unit and the coolant is already in it so you dont have to worry about coolant level drop of with these, the pipes are insulated, though you can get pipes for the system that have lights on them, the radiator is always warm but i would say thats the only thing in the system or entire computer that is warm, there is no fluid to top up, there is a sealed unit which comes connected to the condenser which is ice cold I think it is some kind of tank. But that is it ! 2 bracket mounted sealed units a radiator and a load of insulated pipes that connect to the heat sinks.
I assume everything is pumped around by pressure or that the pump is in the tank / other sealed unit, but I don't know wear the pump is, it just works.
I have herd many good things in reviews of Condensed Cooling Systems one of the main things people seem to pick up on is that it saves on the cost of having to buy fluid, to top up the tank and the radiator and the cost of all the replacement parts any time there is a leak, accessories. You just buy these things and they last forever, they are rated to last 16 years before needing maintenance. I was like what ? in 16 years condenser technology will be as old as the straw hut and I will be 42 and hopefully in University by than.

But what got my is that it uses a condenser (a computer with a condenser in it) and will last 16 years before in needs maintenance (maintenance not replacement)

Dude that seems like a pretty reliable piece of kit and well worth the money.

I am replacing a four year old Bryant thermostat (7 wire) that runs a Bryant heat pump and gas furnace. I connected the Honeywell EIM to the old wires using the same colort codes: W = W (o/b); Orange =...

Well you are naming 6 colors, where is 7?? I'm guessing you don't have a constant 24 going to the heat pump and there is no transformer outside. Send model number of indoor and outdoor, double check your wiring, double check your setup.

Hi We have just arrived back in Wellington from overseas. Our house has a gas central heating system - the unit is Brivis Buffalo 20. What we would like to know is how cost effective the Brivis Buffalo 20...

Hi, if you are planning to change this system out, please stay with a gas fired central system as compared to a heat pump, they are much more cost effective. Heat-pumps have so many problems as there are more parts on them to go wrong. The compressor and condenser fan motor run year around as with a heat-pump they use what is called a reversing valve that changes the flow of freon making the indoor coil the outdoor coil and the same with the outdoor coil becomes the indoor coil in the winter season. I can recommend excellent gas fired units compared to the Brivis unit you have that is much more cost effective, such as the Bryant, Carrier, Goodman. I would go with a Bryant and talk to a dealer. Stay away from a heat-pump no matter what they tell you as I have worked on them for many years and if you have gas available, stay with gas. You will heat your home much faster and save on electricity as this heat -pump units need heat strips for back up heat as they can't keep up the temperature with out them. I hope I have been of help to you on this, and you will be kind when rating me as I know you will. Please contact a Bryant dealer as you will not regret it.
