Thermostat is off? Thermostat is defective or start relay is defective, make sure compressor is not getting hot when plugged into power source. If suspected compressor start relay we can jump the thermostat to eliminate that possibility. Let me know should you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have an upright freezer Kelvinator I got it at a garage sale, we brought it home and it has sat for a while and we never tried to get it to work until now, it doesnt turn on at all no light, no sound,...

I looked at the parts diagram (GE model#FUF14SUDRWW) on Searspartsdirect. I didn't see an actual on/off switch, but it does show a temperature control switch in the inside of the unit. On some of the freezers, if you turn the knob all the way to the left, it acts as an off switch and kills the unit. It looks like the knob inside the cabinet, on the lower back right side (it could be upper..hard to tell by that diagram). If there is no knob, but an empty hole, then the knob is missing and you might have to turn the shaft with pliers to check it. If you get a click at one limit of the switch when it is turned, that means it is acting as an on/off switch. If nothing happens when turning it after the click, I would suspect a bad switch. Since the lights nor compressor are working, it would point at a switch. You can probably find it cheaper than Sears by googling the part # WR09X10064. I saw it as low as $84 at some of the appliance parts site. A local place might have a used one for cheaper.
Hope this helps

Pilot light stays lit when I turn the gas valve to on. But nothing happens when I Turn the thermostat on. Help

The thermostat control is bad, you will need to replace the thermostat switch and everything will work just fine. Basically the thermostat switch is not sending a signal to the gas valve telling to to turn on

HEIL 80% furnace T-STAT calls for heat, Inducer runs and nothing else happens, Ohm meter reads 4.9 on ignitor. MDL#NTGM100EHA2....Any help with this?

On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).

Omega he60 not blowing air

Check for bad breaker. Check power where it enters heater. If It has power check for broken or burnt wires or bad relay switch or thermostat.

You have a safety limit switch that is either bad or needs to be manually reset. Some have little buttons between the two wires going to the switch that you can push to reset. If not they are automatic switchs then one is bad. You have to do an ohms test to see if each switch is bad or good.

Tower gets no power

90% of the time this symptom indicates a bad power supply.
If a generic system and in some name brand systems, the part is quite cheap (about $40) + labor.

In rare cases, the power switch could be bad.
