Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Recently, the power went off during a storm and now suddenly my thermostat stopped working. I changed the batteries and it worked, but now I'm changing it every couple of days. The batteries used to be for emergency back up and now it only operates with batteries. Can anyone figure out what may be the problem? Thanks

Hello

You have lost your a/c power to your T stat.

Have a look in your fuse/circut breaker box for a blown breaker and reset it.

You may need to have your heat unit checked for a blown low voltage fuse also.

My Hp Pavillion dv60000 went through a power surge during a storm.


From the description the power surge went through the power adapter and into the main motherboard, I would have the power supply checked out, if okay! it means the motherboard has been compromised and at this point replace the laptop computer

Will not heat we replaced both elements but still no hot water rheem model no.82v522marlene we suspect we had a power surge during last storm because the furnace went out also at the same time


Hi I suspect your thermostat will have also been damaged if you had a surge I always replace thermostats at the same time as the elements
Also check the wiring as sometimes surges can melt the copper core of the wiring, but be careful always turn off the power first before any electrical works!

Nothing shows up in the display. This has only been recently after a power glitch. The display lights when a call is made or received.


I unplugged the base unit from the wall for more than 10 minutes. Sometime after I plugged it back in (not immediately)the display re-appeared.

Central air does not kick in.


It sounds like you have a bad capacitor to the compressor. The humming noise is the compressor not starting up but is trying. It is either the capacitor or the compressor form your description. If you had a lightning storm or power surge about the time this happened it is most likely a bad capacitor. You can have the capacitor tested to see. Disconnect power before working on unit!

Thermostat message battery low. Put in two new batteries and it will not reset or start. Lost Power during storm and cannot get it going again.


Let me see if I understand your question.. your thermostat indicated the batteries needed to be replaced so you changed them with new ones.. With new batteries, you cannot get your thermostat to initialize or program correctly and as a result of that, you cannot get your AC system to start up.. If that is true, please provide the Honeywell Model # and verify the batteries you installed were Ok,...
Will attempt to assist once you've provided this info..

( on an off chance, have you checked the fuse or cuircuit breaker for your AC system to make sure it has power available?) This is especially important after a power outage..
