I have a dual carrier condensor system for two story house. Gas furnace in attic. one of the condensors makes a loud noise when it automatically turns off. Loud enough to disturb sleep. otherwise it works fine. The model number is 24aba336a300. It was put into service June 2007. What's getting ready to happen?

SOURCE: ignition proving failure

is unit a two pipe system? if it is have you tried removing the black cap opposit the combustion pvc pipe? If you remove the cap, and furnace stays check for an obstruction in intake pipe.
If that isnt the problem check the condensate drain system.

Air conditioning condensor on side of house not working


sounds like you need to check your run cap it is silver in the outside unit and it runs the compressor and fan motor. Check on the capacitor what size it is and replace it for example 45+5 uf.

I had my a/c charged today because it has not been cooling the house down. It took less than a pound, but it still blows worm air. Fan and compressor all running. I cleaned outside unit, filters, replaced...


It could be that it is not charged correctly. Check the insulated copper
line outside if it is sweating and the condensor is discharging hot air, then the ac is doing all that it can. Check the evaporator inside to see
if the drain has condensate coming out of it.

Getting the heat out of the attic is a good idea, but you must have enough make-up air in the attic for the fan. If you do not have enough
make up air, it will start to draw air from inside the house. One way to check this is if you have a gas water heater and or furnace. If you put
a flame by the exhaust pipe in the basement and it blows it out, then you now have a backdraft problem.

Run the AC withoutthe fan, my real guess is the unit is not properly
charged or you do not have a big enough AC unit.

What are the annual checks and servicing that should be done can these be done at home by a handy man?


Are you refering to a split system/ furnace and Central Air? Start with the furnace filter at the indoor
unit. Most newer furnaces do not have an oil plug for
the blower motor but it does not hurt to check to see
if it has oil ports.

You can take a thermometer and take a temperature difference across the coil which should be between
14-20degrees.

At the outdoor unit you can check the condensor fan
motor to see if it has oil ports. After you have the top
of the fan off to the side, you can take a garden hose
and wash the condensor from the inside to the outside of the coil.

You can start the cooling and make sure that hot air
is discharging out of the top of the condensor. Check
to see if the insulated suction line is getting cool.

Outside unit runs continuously, even when system is off.


On A/C units, there is a low voltage line that leads to a contactor, which engages to close the high voltage circuit to the condensor unit. Over time, the accual contacts in the contactor can weld themselves together. Try shutting off your furnace breaker but leaving on the one for the outside condensor unit. If it still runs, your contactor probably needs replaced. Contact a licensed electrician or HVAC contractor and tell them you think your contactor is in need of replacement. Is a fairly simple and quick replace, but the contactor itself is not cheap.

I need help selecting the best Amana 5 ton furnace/ac.


I believe you are asking which furnace to go with?

Just some clarification first.

The "condensor" is the outdoor unit.
A "Compressor" is the device inside the outdoor unit that pumps and "compresses" the refridgerant.

An evaporator is the indoor coil, it has refridgerant running through it.

The furnace is completely seperat from the condensor and evaporator.

I "THINK" you are saying that you are looking to buy an AMANA system with a 5 ton 14 to 16 SEER condensor, and a furnace, but you need suggestions on the furnace.

typically when you purchace a condensor, the evaporator coil is simply matched by the manufacturer to the specific condensor you purchace, there is no choosing to deal with. All condensors ofcourse come with a compressor already installed.

If my assumption about your request is correct, maybe this will help.

Amana's 90+ furnaces are great units. I would recomend them to anyone. The 80+ uses a somewhat inferior heat exchanger, and is ofcourse less efficient.
Anything higher than a 90+ can take quite a while to recoup the costs of the enitial purchace through your efficiency savings.

If it were my home, I would go with the 90+ furnace, and the 16 SEER Condensor/evaporator system. But ultimatly, its up to you, your efficiency standards and your wallets potential.

If you live in a northern state where AC is little needed, I'd go with the 14 SEER AC.
Again, an initial cost verses long term savings issue.
