I have a Coleman mach 3 ac unit. ive replaced everything except the compressor. the fan will come on but when i put it on ac it blows the fuse in the thermostat.

Fuse in the tstat?? First inspect the low voltage wire outside for imperfections, such as bare wires. Unhook the low voltage wires to condenser outside and cap with existing wire nuts. Then replace fuse and turn system on with cooling. If fuse still good then you have a short in the contactor coil in the condenser. Need new contactor. If fuse only blows when a call for cooling it's in the wire for low voltage or the contactor itself.

I have a 1974 harley I can't get it to fire. One port on the coil (bottom) has real slight fire. The top nothing? fxt lowrider

Test the primary side of the coil. Disconnect the small wires from both ends of the coil. Then, use a digital volt ohm meter to test the resistance of the coil. Put the meter's function switch in OHMS, R X 1 scale. Touch one meter probe to each one of the terminals on the ends of the coil. The meter should read between 5-6 ohms of resistance. If it does this, reconnect the white wire to the top terminal of the coil. Take a plain piece of wire and strip about an inch of insulation from each end. Connect one end of this wire to the bottom terminal of the coil. Put both spark plug wires in the coil with a spark plug in each wire. Make sure the plugs are grounded to the engine. Turn the ignition switch on and MOMENTARILY touch the wire you connected to the bottom terminal of the coil to the engine and then take it away from the engine. When you take the wire away from the engine ground, you should see a spark at both plugs. If not, the coil is bad. Have you cleaned and checked the gap on your points? Clean the points using a thin piece of stiff paper like a piece of index card with a bit of alcohol on it. Set the gap on the points to 0.020". Make sure the gray wire from the points is connected to the bottom terminal of the coil.

Good Luck

We live in southwest Florida. Our HVAC system consists of a air conditioning system with heating coils when it is cool. Yesterday morning we tried the heat nothing come on. Later in the day I tried the air...

Hello. Sounds like you do have power. That spring loaded plastic switch is a 24v contactor. It pulls in when energized. If you push it in manually everything shoud run normal. Ck your 24v transformer. On one side (feed) you should have 115v or 220v depending on what kind of transformer is used likely (115v). Coming out of the transformer you should have 24v. If not you need a new transformer. You will need a mutimeter for this. If you know you have power where the wires are connected then you know how to use a mutimeter. Only way to know for sure outside of manually pushing in the contactor. Good luck. Be sure to kill the power before making repairs.

Son weed eating and hit wire outside now have no eletric to thermostate and wont come on wire is not broke into

The transformer may be shot. Place the fan switch on the thermostat from auto to run. The indoor fan should come on. If it doesn't then the transformer is probably bad. You can check for power on the transformer primary and then the secondary. If you have power on the primary and not on the secondary then it is no good either.

The outside fan motor (OFM) will not turn off.

it sounds like your fan connector is on the same side of the contactor where your high voltage enters you should have 3 wires 1 wire for each pole of the contactor and 1 wire off the capacitor does the compressor run all the time too? try turning the power switch off on your indoor air handler / gas furnace if the power goes off the fan goes off then it could be low voltage wiring

The window unit is turned on, but doesnt seem to be very strong with blowing cold air . is there something that can be checked on the unit? something that can be replaced on the unit-like a filter? since...

first make sure the filter and coils are clean, then be sure you have it set for recirculate and not outside air allowance, and if ou wait til the room is very hot it will take a while to cool that room down to a comfort level. the fan and temperature control should both be at maximum if the room is very hot.

Fridge not cooling, freezer is ok.

Its usually a bulb of heat sensitive Gas then a long thin pipe that eventually connects to thermostate switch, bypass this switch to seee if that could be the faulty part. Good Luck , the Yeti

Problem with lights on install of a ceiling fan/light

ok...assuming the blue wire is the second wire coming from the light switch, it should be connected seperately to the black wire leading to the light(s). so the black lead of the switch should be connected to the power wire from the ceiling box and the blue wire should be connected to the black lead that goes to the lights. it sounds like you have the light leads connected to the main power, so the light switch would be bypassed, thus not operating correctly.
all white wires should be connected together unless one is being used as a return power from the wall switch, (which is often done).
hope this helps..........................jay
