Check the drain pump, is it getting blocked or is it loose.If the water gets blocked from draining, then error e4 comes up.The other possibility of error e4 is short in control board components.First check the drain line, if its checked ok then the control board needs to be checked for shorted components. ----------- Check out.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

No RPM What is wrong


I have a Startrac 4500 that gives a no rpm error occasionally. It normally works fine, but sometimes gives this error. The unit is in a garage and the problem occurs during a cold and damp spell. I have stripped it down previously but to no avail, but I have found a simple way to fix my machine. lift the motor cover and blow hot air across the boards and motor for a few minutes from a hair-dryer. Don't get things hot, just enough to take away the dampness. This has fixed the machine for 2 winters now.

Does dehuidifiers stop working as hard in the winter months then in the summer months. Because my water bucket has not fill up since gotten cold. I live is Alexandria Va and it is winter here.


Generally speaking there is more moisture in the air during the summer months. As the humidity goes down in the winter your dehumidifier will not collect as much water because there is less moisture in the air.

I have a 20 year old Trane heat pump. Outside


Yes, you will want to put the unit into cooling mode to help assistance with the ice melt.

If you can, block off the outdoor coil or disconnect the outdoor fan motor. This will assist in raising the discharge pressure and temperature and thus, it will melt the ice quicker.


Or, if you have the capability, you can take a garden hose around to the unit hooked into hot water and melt the ice that way.




If your control board is messed up, why aren't you replacing it?

I have the same problem with my extra fridge in the garage. It has to do with the oil used as a refrigerant in newer models. The cold temprature thickens the oil and it stops cooling. Nothing you can do about it other than opening the door to the fridge to warm the insides up. It works for me. And thank god it's only when it gets very cold outside that this happens. Ps...my garage is insulated and drywalled and it still occors during cold spells.

Fan freezes up with ice in winter


They need air, do not cover it when in use.

If ti cools fine in summer then you just have a defrost problem.

Make sure the outdoor coil is clean.
If the coils are clean, then you have a bad defrost control.

In heat mode the unit should go into a timed or temp controlled defrost. If it is frosting up to the point of stopping the fan, in heat mode only, and otherwise operates properly, then its a bad defrost control.

It is reccomended that the defrost temp sensor be replaced at the same time the defrost control board is replaced. Some temp sensors are part of the board and not a seperate component, but not most.

When igniting, the Jandy 2 lite has tremdous flameout from unit.


I suspect that dust or debris of some type accumulates inside of the heater during months of nonuse. Store the unit in a box or a plastic bag and see if this solves the problem. good luck with it.

I had this same problem back in November during a very cold spell.I had an appointment to have some "recall" work done on my 03 passat and told them about the STOP brake light. When I picked up my car, the dealer told me that it just needed some brake fluid??, so they filled it ! Well, I don't know about that, but I haven't seen that pesky STOP warning light since.
