Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I live in an apartment building; the A/C has been "broken" the entire summer and, although multiple reports have been filed with the landlord, nothing's being done. I've pulled the A/C out, the receptacle it's plugged into (a NEMA 6-20 208/240) gives 0V, the unit's getting no voltage. The apartment breaker box doesn't have a breaker controlling the A/C line (only regular plugs stove). Is there a standard place to hide the fuse/breaker for such an outlet if it's not in the regular breaker box?

Unfortunately it could be anywhere in the building. I have seen the conduit and breaker boxes for units placed several stories away from the outlets. Often times in the basements or other utility rooms. Breaker panels in your apartment are for your convienence with normal items such as your stove, fridge, or normal appliances. However, some landlords will place the breaker panels for airconsitioning and heating system in a separate, locakable arear or room. Especially if the landlord pays the utilities for air or heating. I suppose it gives them the added benefit to cut you off in the event you don't pay the rent.

Sorry for the problems, hope it works out for you.

Fix F-20 Error Code


We had a shared machine between the tenants in my apartment building. We would see this code a lot. The landlord had to clean out all of the debris that collected in there. Don't know if you have done that already. Seems you have done more than our landlord did.

I am in a new apartment and this is a digital thermostat but no model number visible, the landlords have fixed the furnace but i still cannot get the heat to go on, please walk me through how to turn on...


Contact the landlord or rental agency again for help. If they don't have instructions for the thermostat the Operating Manuals for many White-Rodgers thermostats can be found in PDF form HERE, however they are not indexed by model number so you will have to download each file in turn until you find the one you want. All of the file names beginning with "0037-" seem to be W-R products.*Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, despite the handle.

How often do i need to replace my fuel filter?


SIMPLE MAINT SCHEDULE , IS CHANGING IT ONCE A YEAR, but it depends where you live, If this truck is a diesel & you live in a northern climate, change your filter once a year but not until you know for ceretain that you are buying winter grade fuel, ie: nov
Reason for this is that there will be wax/parafin build up in the filter that your ran on the summer fuel, it can congeal in the filter in winter becasue of this build up. If you replace the filter in late autumn, then tat filter will not have a congeal problem because the there hasnt been anything but winter grade fuel through it, , and its safe to run all next summer , but the summers residue will cause problems next winter , so change again in late autumn .

This is insulation from a piece of flex duct that is most likely broken or falling apart. It is not good to be breathing insulation I would take to the landlord about having the piece of flex duct reconnected to eliminate any further insulation infiltration.
