We purchased an american standard whirlpool corner tub, installed it and 5 minutes after plugging it in the heater somehow turned itself on and caught on fire almost burning down a brand new home and the wiring was all correct on it.

Usually there is a safety pressure switch that requires there to be water in the tub and the pump to be running before it will allow the heater to come on. Either this switch was faulty or the controls for the tub were wired incorrectly, that's about all it could be

What is the cost of the of having a person replace a capacitator on an Amercan Standard furnace


Most of that charge (the $200.00) was likely the service call itself. IF you don't have a maintenance agreement with these folks they charge an arm and a leg for service calls. The fan will be much more pricey than the capacitor, and you will certainly get another service call charge. You may want to ask about a maintenance agreement at that time. Some places will waive the service charge if you purchase one. Then you basically get the semi-annual servicing for the same price as you would have paid just to have the blower replaced (depending on the contract cost)..

My furnance keeps turning off and I could go to furnance flip switch on and it only last 5 minutes then shuts off again


You may want to check the limit switch or you could have a issue with the gas valve or transformer. I would check the low voltage transformer first, Sometimes I have found that under load the transformer will open ( quit working) and will close after power is removed and it cools down, It indicates a bad internal connection.

I have an error code on my american standard model # ACONT900AC43UA communicating,programmable comfort control. Says to find the Error codes from American Standard Pub 18-HD32D2-8 but I don't have...


I am experiencing the same error code on my American Standard AC and according to Public. #18-HD32D2-8, error code 126 is in the Equipment Change Alert Group and the description says "Equipment does not match value stored at startup." Then, in a footnote, it says "A device has changed since Auto Discovery (See Installer Guide *S& 0706 to reset)."

This is all Greek to me so I'm calling my AC guy. I can tell you this, however. I bought an American Standard AC brand new just two years ago and one year ago exactly, it blew up. American Standard replaced it. Now, one year later, more problems.

I question the quality of American Standard and would not be inclined to buy this brand again.

Im looking for a parts list and manual for an american standard system as well as an indoor blower motor. model # wcc030f100bb


Instead of looking for an OEM motor which can cost an insane amount of money...

try taking the information off the motor itself and taking it to a part supply house or motor shop. i.e. an 875RPM 1/4 HP 208 V 1 PH motor with a 1/2" shaft.

Maybe taking the motor itself to the parts house or motor shop will get you further than internet searching a blower motor part number. These systems are designed so that universal parts can be put back in place....at least most of them.

sounds as if the heater coil itself is burnt out. These coils may be repaired if you can get an universial coil repair kit and rewire the heater coil yourself. Since the age of the unit is in question I don't know if it is possible to get a kit for repairs but you never know. I would check an a/c supply house for this kit. Good Luck on your repairs

I have just replaced my HVAC Control board &


Once you have installed the jumper, you will need to kill power to the furnace for about a minute to reset the board. Make sure the the jumper is making good contact. Sometimes they appear to be plugged in but still are not making contact.
