Just from the brief description you have given sounds like the pc board in the thermostat has failed... on some models behind the cover there is sometimes a reset button ...it usually is very small and hard to locate if there is one on your model ...you may want to give it a look.. if not i would recommend going to local home depot or lowes and replace unit...beware these are low voltage units but if wires are crossed up you can short out the low voltage transformer in the blower unit so recommend turning off heater circuit while replacing just as safety percaution... and mark your wires get alot of people that forget where something goes and guesses and the problem just got worse. good luck.

My electric baseboard heater makes an annoying clicking sound constantly. I know it is the expansion of the metal but is there a trick to get rid of the noise. I just moved into my new home and had never...


You are correct, the "clicking" sounds you hear are the result of the metal expanding due to heat. You're probably hearing it more now probably because the thickness of the metal parts is thinner than that of those your old house's baseboard heaters. There is really not a whole lot you can do about the issue outside of replacing the units that bother you. Fortunately, these hears are pretty inexpensive to purchase and easy to install when used as a replacement for existing heaters. If unsure or uncomfortable doing the work, contact an electrician.

Bring a short heater's cover and compare the thickness of it to those you find for sale elsewhere. A thinker cover will be less noisy - but will make *some* noise when heating.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I have a1999 honda civic. what happens if timing belt goes out? does it make a grinding noise or clicking sound?


If the timing belt goes out the whole engine will freeze up and blow it if its making a clicking sound but only when you turn then that means that the cv shafts are bad and need to be replaced

We moved in in Oct. of last year and our freestanding gas heater (williams) just started making banging noises every time the thermostat turns it down. IT's very annoying. we'd like to have the landlord...


The banging could be a sign of a failing gas valve or an indication of an air adjustment. The best efficiency you can get out of this heater is about 65%. The best thing is to replace it with a Rinnai ES32 which will give you 82% efficiencies (read, less money to run if you pay the gas bill).

No heat. blows but not hot


same problem here. so far ive determined that the car has the right amount of coolant, and the engine is running at the right temp the fans turn on and off and the thermostat seems to work correctly. someone advised the problem was the heater shut off motor but I dont know where it is or how to check it yet, anyone? also the car did make some noise from the blower motor so maybe the heater core is blocked with leaves or someting, ill check all before i bring it to the dealer.


I also ran into this problem on my 2002 Galant. I've found that the heater control value tends to get stuck on these vehicles, especially when the heat has not been used all summer. It will make a clicking noise from behind the dash when it fails. This is a common problem. See

Compressor makes noise and goes on and off constantly


That foam block is an anti vibration dampening device. My guess is is goes up against the underneith od that compressor. The real problem is with the short cycling compressor. I would return that piece of junk.

SQUEL at all speeds..


Bearings in thermostatic fan. Try and run it without the fan on for a minute. Maybe you can even get the fan to squeal by turning it by hand, but you probably won't get it to go fast enough.

Carrier XHD183D Through-the-Wall Heater/AC runs constantly


YOU COULD EITHER HAVE A THERMOSTAT PROBLEM OR FAN CONTROL PROBLEM.TURN THE POWER OFF AT THE FURNACE AND TAKE THE THERMOSTAT OFF THE WALL.MAKE SURE YOU MARK THE WIRES SO YOU KNOW HOW TO HOOK IT BACK UP AGAIN.RESTORE POWER TO THE FURNACE.TOUCH THE WIRES THAT WERE HOOKED TO THE R & G TERMINALS ON THE T-STAT TOGETHER AND HOLD THEM THERE.OBSERVE THE OPERATION. WHEN YOU TAKE THEM APART DOES THE BLOWER STOP?TRY IT A FEW TIMES. IF IT CONTINUES TO START AND STOP YOU GOT A BAD T-STAT.JEFF
