    My unit is almost 2 years old. I was told it had a 5 year warranty. Do you know anything about warranties?

Wall ac in off position plug in surge protector blows instantly


It may be possible the it has fried the surge protected internally causing it to short out or blow when plugging in. I would try using another surge protected if you have one or if possible replace the cord going to the unit with a new one and see what happens. Also possible that the outlet your using went bad during the storm as well. Don't know 100% but should be a couple tips to help get you going.

1 posible cause.the thermostat supplies 24 volts to the outside unit to control the contactor if you hear a ligth huming on the outside unit this is the being activated. if this is the case then
check to see if any ants are in or around the unit see video, they will usually climb to dry areas before during or after a storm and for some reason they like the contactor if this is the case cut all power to the unit and clean contactor spray the area around the unit with an insecticide ( not the contactor) replace cover and test unit.

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!

Wii wont turn on, nothing had a lightning storm last night and now nothing


Try replacing the power cable, many times when there is a power surge and you do not have a surge protector it will burn out the transformer on the power cord. If you replace it and still nothing, most likely your Wii has been burned out by a power surge.

It may still be supplying power but the surge arrestors were probably damaged by the surge. Go to apc.com choose support from the menu bar, they should be able to help or maybe even replace your unit.

Dometic air & analog thermostat control kit


Had one doing similar recently, and after a thunder & lightning storm. Nothing worked, but kept blowing 2 amp fuse in thermostat, when anything tried, heat or cool. Pulled plastic control box down from inside upper unit (AC) made sure breaker was off, took of plastic cover and smelled inside, and could smell burnt plastic smell. Replaced, control box, that got fan only working. Tried another thermostat , everything worked as it should. Turns out the lightning, or power surge, or whatever, shorted out the thermostat, and control box at same time.
