A dog chewed my mother-in-laws lines to the AC unit outside. Someone attempted to slpice the wires, but now neither the furnace, AC or Fan will work. \r\nWhen I go to the furnace, I can hear a faint hum when some tries to turn it on. Whirlpool NUGG075AF01 (20 year old unit)

You may just have a blown fuse. Check on the PC board for a fuse and replace. Sometimes they are in-line of some of the wiring.

How do I get my AC running again? Ruud UBHC AC unit isn't running. Started yesterday or today.


Sounds like there is no control voltage. Either the transformer to reduce the voltage from 110 volts to 24 volts is not producing the 24 volts needed for control voltage, or most furnaces have a small 3 or 5 amp fuse mounted on the main control circuit board that may be blown. Other "outside circumstances" may involve a break in the thermostat wire...more than likely the red wire if you are getting nothing to work. I have seen evidence of "critters" that have chewed through the low voltage thermostat wiring that would keep the thermostat from controlling anything. To check this, go to the furnace and jumper the red & green wire to get the fan running just to isolate if it is a thermostat wiring severred. Good Luck.

My AC unit had been blowing warm air for a couple of days so i went outside to take a look and noticed that the dog had chewed through the thermostat wire so I spliced a new wire in. Since then, the AC...


Hi,
When you spliced the wires you shorted out the low voltage side of the system..
Now the fuse blew on the circuit board of the furnace or air handler if you are lucky enough to have a fuse in there...
If there is no fuse then the transformer is blown and will need to be replaced...

Is the furnace fan (indoor fan ) running. If not the problem is with the inside unit. It supplies the control power to operate the entire system and has a control fuse on the circuit board. If it is running but not the outside unit then the problem is outside.

The dog chewed the wiring to the condesor outside. i re wired and now the furnace turns on but not the a/c unit ouside?


Hi, well you have 1/2 of it right. Recheck the wiring and wire it color to color as you are not getting 24 volts to the condenser. If you have a gas furnace and not a heat pump you will only need 2- wires to run the outdoor unit, red and yellow. Make sure the dog didn't chew through another section also.

It's cold out, and my Central Air kicks on every time my furnace kicks in. I get heat, but don't think my outside unit (fan) should be kicking in each time my furnace kicks on. Suggestions


Hi, If you have what is called a heat pump, the outdoor unit is supposed to run. It has a reversing valve which reverses the flow of refrigerant and the indoor unit becomes the condenser and the outdoor becomes the evaporator coil. Now, if you don't have a heat pump and the furnace is gas fired, then the control wiring or thermostat is calling for both to come on. Control wiring has to be touching together somewhere and bringing on both. Look over the exposed stat wire outside if you have a dog that may have chewed the wires, I have seen this happen. If all wiring looks good, then the stat is faulty and must be replaced. Make sure you don't have a heat pump first, as the fan, compressor, and all will run on heat and cooling. I hope this will solve you're problem, please let me know, I would like to hear back. Sincerely,

That wire is to your thermostat which of course turns the A/C on/off. One thing you can do is to splice the wire back together w/ small wire nuts (available at hardware store or wal-mart, and just hook it up color to color and then tape w/ electrical tape. Make sure you turn your breaker off and turn off the thermostat control.
