Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Our air conditioner has been switched off for some months. Last week we had a power outage. When I switch the unit on now it runs for a short time then P8 along with two zeros flashes on the control unit. The outdoor units are clear of foliage and other debris and the filters are clean.

P8 due to outdoor pipe temp high. Due to condenser blocked. But you said it's cleaned. Check speed of fan rpm. After short time fan may rotates slowly. Please replace fan capacitor in out door unit.

Had a short power outage now the unit will not run. breaker ok and 234 volts to outside unit but inside unit will not come on. is there a reset or something


Try turning the unit off at thye meter box or the isolator switch out next to the outdoor unit of the air con. Leave off for 15 minutes and then switch back on again. Some Air cons get screwed up with power surges... Leaving off at the mains for a while often resets them. If the air con was running at the time the power went off, it may have damaged one of the electronic boards... Do you get any flashing lights or displays showing what could be an error code ??

8 year old Air conditioner only used in the last 3 years more than a week or two a year. capacitor changed last year Unit was working a week ago now fan is not turning, Connector clicks when turn on...


Outdoor units require there own power supply, check the breaker panel and the fuses in the disconnect switch box next to the unit if there are fused, If the capacitor that was changed last year was not the right rating or configuration it may need to be corrected. One of the most common mistakes is to find a dual run capacitor with on side not functioning and jump in a capacitor for the non functioning side, if this was done it needs to be corrected with the proper capacitor or capacitors.

My Coleman powermate generator 6250 won't start. We used it last month when we had a power outage during the coldest of winter weather. We checked the oil, gas compartment and found that there was...


Make sure the sparkplug is clean and gapped. Unloosen the float bowl slightly and drain about a half cup of gas out of the bowl. It is possible a little condensation got in to the fuel. Tighten the bowl nut slightly and try to start the generator.

DONT KNOW EXACTLY WHAT IS WRONG. OUR POWER BILL LAST YEAR WAS 211.00 AND KNOW WITH THISE BILL IS 678.00. IT IS H EATING AN 18X23 ROOM. THE SETTING FOR TEMP. IS ON 72 DEGREES. THIS THING HAS RUN OUR BILL UP...


Simple way to pay less bill with big comfort.
Tips for it: To get proper cold air set temp 23 degree and mode"cool". To get heat set temp 30 degree and mode in "Heat" Clean indoor and out door periodically ( Once in 4 months) Clean Air filter every fortnightly. Avoid frequent opening of the door where it's air conditioned. Avoid keep closing the doors even a/c is switch off. It helps to cool the room next times in short minutes. Use proper breaker, wiring for your air conditioner plug points. Make sure your elect meter is working properly.Check your Elect meter with 1000watts bulb for one hour. It should consume one unit only. Hope, it's helpful.

I had a power outage and my GE 10000BTU window a/c unit stopped working after 4 weeks. When the power was restored the unit wouldn't come on.


I bet that your ac was running on low voltage for awhile before the black out and the compressor burnt out and or seized. indication . A hum and a click indicates a bad compressor

Air conditioner compressor runs for about 1-2 min, then cuts off


well when u have outages the voltage drops obviously, the one that suffers are the capacitors the capacitor for the compressor might need to change, change it with the same capacity as the old one example if labels say 55 microfarady ( mf ) ( 55 mf ) get one of the same I am not saying it is a 55 mf capacitor vary depending on motor and brand. So check the label

Problem with amana central air conditioner saftey switch


The switch he jumped out was the high pressure cut out switch which tripped because you left the cover on. Sounds as though it did it's job and he cut it out to sell you another. Yes it is important to have as it protects the compressor.

Intertherm ac/heater in a mobile home shuts off and won't come back on for quite a while. Then it runs fine for days, weeks, sometimes months. HELP


I am assuming it's an electric unit (most are). Sounds like there is a low voltage short somewhere. This could also be a thermostat problem as well. If it were a relay switch, it would not work at all because when they go bad, thats it they dont work anymore. There isn't an inbetween. I'm leaning more towards a low voltage short. Make sure that your low voltage wiring is tight and not loose. Be careful not to work on the unit with power to it.

Mr. Slim msz-a17na won't turn on after power outtage


after a power outage, normally as power comes back in, it's a little bit high than normal.

with a dead set that you got, it would probably be the control transformer. the primary could have been burn by a spike voltage.( sudden rise in voltage above normal).

or im sure it has a fuse. check first the fuse. if the fuse is ok, then it would be the transformer.

tnx 4 using fixya,
