Question about Carrier TSTATHCP Programmable Thermostat Air Conditioner

1 Answer

We had two new carrier HVAC units installed a year ago and both thermostats have failed. The contractor told us the thermostats were only warranted for one year and were just out of luck because the carrier T-stats are junk and they all fail quickly. Is this true?

I have a carrier Day & Night a/c - heater unit. the model # 591ANX0480000ACAA, 208/230 volts. my blower fan stays on continuously, even after turning the thermostat off. the condenser fan does not come on...


If the blower fan in the furnace won't turn off, there is a tripped/blown limit. It's a safety. As for your condenser fan it could be a run cap or motor. Do yourself a favor and have a licensed HVAC contractor take a look. Find a NATE certified or ACCA member. You will find a much better more qualified contractor.

Condenser fan replaced one year ago, fan not turning but can hear motor


the answer to your problem is most likely the motor start capacitor. A AC motor can run in both directions. The start capacitor is used to cause the current to lag behined the voltage which determines the direction the motor will turn. Its posible the start and run capacitors are in one can. so changing one will change the other. However look for a wiring diagram. Do not asume that both capacitors are wired in properly. They may be fighting one another causeing premature failure.

I replaced my whole heat pump system 3 years ago with a Carrier Puron unit. The installer called me this week and told me that I needed to replace the puron after the third year at a approx cost of...


Tell him you already had it done. lol. Unless you misunderstood what he told you no! You don't need to replace the Refrigerant weather it's Puron or Freon. It doesn't wear out. Ever. If your system develops a leak and you loose the Refrigerant it will have to be replaced but you will know you lost it because the system won't cool and heat like it's supposed to. I would report the installer to the better business bureau.

Compressor won't come on, thus A/C is not working.


Tell your contractor that you are notifying the local building inspector. He will not like this. I hope he applied for a permit to do the install. If he did, tell your local building department and demand that they activate the contractors bond to pay for another contractor to complete the job. And/or call the local Goodman distributor and let them know how dissatisfied you are with that particular contractor that they are selling to. See if they can help you. Worst case scenario, accept your loss and call another contractor. I would write a letter to the local newspapers editor and the better business bureau regarding this shady contractor. Put an add in the newspaper notifying everyone what happened to you. Put a sign in your front yard stating DO NOT USE THIS CONTRACTOR
This contractor can not afford to have the bad publicity that you can inflict upon him. Call him ten times a day. Call him at 3 AM every night. Haunt him.
Good luck........

Carrier air handler tonnage?


That is a fairly large difference. It is usually ok to have the inside evap. coil and blower up to 1 ton larger than the outside condenser. That will make the unit slightly more efficient as well as less likely to freeze up on low airflow situations. It is not recommended to install a new condenser on an old evap coil. There has been a lot of changes to the design of the coils in the last little while. For example a 10 year old 2 ton coil may only have 3 cubic feet of volume but a new 2 ton coil may have 4 cubit feet of volume.

There are many factors that may have infulenced the decision on what size condenser to install. Many of which can only be done by visiting the home and doing alot of work, checking the duct sizing bioth supply and return, inspecting the insulation and windows of the home etc. etc. Most of the time that never gets done. You can blame the contractor for not doing a complete check, but at the same time you can blame the customer because many contractors that are that good loose the job to a cheaper bid that did not no any of the research. It is a catch 22 for everyone involved.

There is ALOT more to sizing equipment that many people think, sadly that also includes many HVAC contractors. Way too many people use "rule of thumbs" or flat out "guess".

Sorry for the rant but your queston can only be answered by a good well educated HVAC contractor visiting your home. That type of a contractor is getting hard to find these days in such a price competetive world.

Carrier evaporator coil


I recently contacted Carrier Corp after our routine annual HVAC check on our residential system indicated that our 4 ton AC unit and 3 ton unit had leaking evaporator coils.
>
They basically told me to shove it in a very curt letter - In other words even though a leaking evaporator coil is a manufacturing defect they will not offer any financial assistance in replacing the failed evaporator coils.
>
I spoke to several HVAC engineers and they indicated Carrier has a high percentage of evaporator coils and compressor failures on residental HVAC systems.
>
The copper wall of the evaporator coil is being drawn thinner than in earlier years and the R22 being acidic slowly eats through the copper tubing.
>
Evaporator coils should not fail according to the HVAC Engineers if properly manufactured.
