Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

I have an older friedrich 25000 btu model:KL25J30A-3. I came home about an hour ago and the house was cool, but its 100 degrees here in San Antonio-so I went to set it to 'med cool' and dialed it to 'cooler', and it didnt seem to want to come on at all. I checked the fuse, and suire enough, it was burnt out. I replaced the fuse. When I turned it back on, it sounded a little weird-dont know how to describe it-like not running to full capacity. There is NO air coming out of the vents, but the A/C is humming, albeit strangely. Fan motor? Am I going to have to buy a new A/C? HELP!!!It's a scorcher--or course my A/C would do this on a triple-digit day.

SOURCE: friedrich xq08m10 - f2 and f3 fan speeds reversed

Unplu cord and remove front panel. Then remove electrical box, you should be able to find the blower motor leads.
Black is usually- hi speed motor
Blue or Yellow is- Medium Speed
Red is- low speed
Just exchange the wires to match the dial

How many btu do i need for a area about 800 sq. ft.?


If you are trying to cool the area and it can closed off from the rest of the house, 15,000 to 20,000 Btu's should cool it nicely. However, there are some variables: How well insulated is the home,? Does this area face the sun 6 to 8 hours a day? Are there more than 3 windows in the area that is to be cooled? Consider those variables when making a choice.If the last 2 were answered "yes", bump up the Btu output by 5000 Btu's.

Hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a friedrich window unit el25j35. the heat went out last night


Toget proper heat, keep your temp setting at 30+ degree and also mode in "heat"position. If still no heat, check your heating sensor for closed circuit by anOHMs metre.It it's with RV, check power to RV.If it's with heatingelement check power to element. If power is there but still no heat meanselement defective. Replace new heating element. Thanks.

Ihave a 175000 btu Lite 2 Jandy Pool Heater model # LD175P. It takes approx 3 hrs to go from 48 degrees to 100 . Why so long?The spa is 7ft in diameter and normal spa depth.Should I have a more btu heater?...


That seems to be a pretty good heating rate. You're talking about 52 degrees in 3 hours. If you want quicker heating, you will need a higher output heater.

Goodman Model CPLE24-1C - Unit will run and cool but after running for an hour in 100 degree plus heat - Compressor will not restart the next time the thermostat calls for restart


First off, the unit shouldn't be running continuously for an hour, that's a sign of the unit being undersized for the house. So, therefor the house is probably heating up so quickly that the compressor doesn't have time to equal out pressures to restart again, especially in the 100 degrees.

3 ton cooling capacity 90,000 btu heat capacity. In Vermont it would be enough if the home was a 4 or 5 star home. Remember it is only 80% efficient so you will only net 72,000 btu output.

I purchased a Friedrich PDH15KS BTU Cooling, 17,000 BTU Heating, 9.3 EER PTAC Air Conditioner With Heat Pump and 5.0 KW Backup Electric Heat....in October of 2007...it was installed in November and ran...


The Warranty will be expired. Sounds like the contactor for the heater is wearing. Obviously a guess, but, "rattling" sounds like a bad cintactor to me. If thats the case, im guessing $100 diagnostic, $75 for the contactor, ISH...Best Wishes!!
