I'm not sure if this is the best option, but it helped me. You can try going to http://www.customcomfortinc.com/. I know you said you're a heating contractor already but I guess it can't hurt to ask.

SOURCE: Compressor is showing ground fault

O.K. a breaker tripping.....it is hard to say cuz your facts are brief.does the breaker trip immediately when you try to reset the breaker? if so...the contractor's employee probably got the 2 "line" legs going to the same side of he disconnect. OR the high volt wire may have short to ground.if the existing wire is xtreamly old, the sheathing can crack and ground out tripping the breaker, quite possibly water may be in the conduit "finding" a crack and shorting out( the reason i bring this up is because a plumber was there.)

breakers often go bad over time....trip and reset the breaker at your panel. it should feel hard to move.there is a spring in there that has to be tight.if it doesn't make a good snap typr action.replace the breaker.they are cheaper than a new machine and they just go bad over time.

you'll have to get another qualified tech to check it out.i would try isolating the high volt circuit and go from there.

good luck.BEWARE OF THE SALESMAN IN TECH CLOTHING.make sure he is old, has dirty nails /uniform.that is a good indicator of a real tech.he may even be slobby too.

Why does the reset button on the aquastat keep tripping every time boiler finished a cicle


Hi, this is because the boiler aquastat is faulty! Change it out as the contacts are worn out causing it to trip the stat. I have seen this so many times. Please let me know.

I replaced my whole heat pump system 3 years ago with a Carrier Puron unit. The installer called me this week and told me that I needed to replace the puron after the third year at a approx cost of...


Tell him you already had it done. lol. Unless you misunderstood what he told you no! You don't need to replace the Refrigerant weather it's Puron or Freon. It doesn't wear out. Ever. If your system develops a leak and you loose the Refrigerant it will have to be replaced but you will know you lost it because the system won't cool and heat like it's supposed to. I would report the installer to the better business bureau.

Compressor won't come on, thus A/C is not working.


Tell your contractor that you are notifying the local building inspector. He will not like this. I hope he applied for a permit to do the install. If he did, tell your local building department and demand that they activate the contractors bond to pay for another contractor to complete the job. And/or call the local Goodman distributor and let them know how dissatisfied you are with that particular contractor that they are selling to. See if they can help you. Worst case scenario, accept your loss and call another contractor. I would write a letter to the local newspapers editor and the better business bureau regarding this shady contractor. Put an add in the newspaper notifying everyone what happened to you. Put a sign in your front yard stating DO NOT USE THIS CONTRACTOR
This contractor can not afford to have the bad publicity that you can inflict upon him. Call him ten times a day. Call him at 3 AM every night. Haunt him.
Good luck........

Please can someone help me!! We purchased 1 year agao a Viesmann Vitodens 100 Combi Boiler and have had major problems with the flow switch sticking. We have had 3 sub contractors come out and replace...


i am pleased to suggest that you try to following. i would wager that the switch is installed in the horizontal position. try replumbing so that the switch or valve is verticle to the ground. . that way particles will settle down with water flow and not be eating up the gaskets on the valve. in other words flow side to side leaves debris in the valve when it seats. . installed in a vertical position the valve flushes itself as it seats. good luck let me know what happens.

Have an oil fired boiler for baseboard heat and it also has a tankless heater for domestic hot water. No heat being called for only getting hot water for use. Boiler goes to 210 degrees before it knocks...


These boilers usually have multiple controls. The control that would take it out of the circuit at 210 degrees is a safety.

You should definitely have a professional take a look at this unit before you continue using it.

I have a vitodens 100-w combi boiler and tried to turn the heating on just to give it a working as was advised. However, I have no heat coming to my radiators. The boilers seems to be working as my hot...


Here's the deal: If your Vitodens 100 has outdoor temperature sensing capability, either built in or via external aftermarket control such as Tekmar or other, and the temperature outside is above warm weather shut down (WWSD), then the boiler will not operate for space heating, but will operate to make Domestic Hot Water (DHW) only. Generally speaking WWSD is facoty set at 20*C, since this is normal room temperature so the boiler will not need to operate at temperatures above this number as it is warm enough outdoors to heat the house to comfortable levels.
If your Vitodens 100 does not have outdoor temperature sensing capability then you should check to see if your room thermostats are operational and calling for heat since the boiler is only responding to this on-off control based on room temperature. (turn up your room thermostats)
In both cases you need to make sure that your heating system's distribution pump and zone valves are operating correctly.
In any case you should be calling a heating contractor if you suspect that there is a problem with your boiler and/or heating system.
Good luck.
