Happy to assist,

HOW MANY BTU IS THE AIR CONDITIONER?
And is it 110 or 220 line!

If it is using 110 or 115 volts like normal house current and it throws circuit breakers in your electric box,then you need to run a dedicated line just for the Air Conditioner!
Usually this happens to 110 -115 volt air-conditioners that are more than 12,000 BTU and do not have a dedicated electric line in the wall only for the air conditioner!

New air conditioners have a circuit breaker built into the units plug!
And I have seen some that throw that breaker to off frequently even if it's only an electric surge! Which it should not do!
if its the case and it's new, take it back to the store and ask for a different model, size, or brand!
Fedders had an 18,000 BTU/ 110-115 volt unit that did this with every single unit last year! I stopped selling that unit only!!

My Amana PTAC PTC153B00AM has no power at all. It is wall plugged, but no lights come on on the board. It was working fine and showed no signs of going bad. Can this be a blown fuse or transformer?


Check the GFI plug where it plugs into the wall and reset it. Also, plug something else into that plug to make sure you didn't pop the circuit breaker

Trips when plugged in


What trips? If you are referring to the circuit breaker then I suspect the breaker is not sufficient for the power the unit draws. Beware installing a higher amperage breaker. First be sure the wiring and all bomponents are adequate.

Ptac not heating


Power? Check breaker. If poped, reset try again. If pops again you have an electrical problem. Could be dangerous. If power is good, the thermostat or heat button switch is bad. How old is Ptac? You may need appliance tech. The voltage is probably 220vac. If you don't know what your doing it's dangerous to troubleshoot. If it's still under warrantee I'd go to MFG.

I have an Amana ptac hotel type thru the wall unit. The unit won't turn on - it's plugged in. The gfi button is popped out. There is power to the wall plug. Any ideas?


Hi,
If you reset the GFCI button and then when you go to turn it on the button pops again, then you have a short inside the units probably in the fan motor or the compressor..

I have a Amana PTAC model PTC123A50AC never had any problems until this a.m. walked into office were installed no heat. Breaker tripped, reset breaker, nothing. Checked outlet, getting power. Any idea's?


To all friends! Whenever you find breaker tripped or fuse blown, it's an indication some device/s are in problem.
To get tripped breaker:
1. Condenser too dusty- clean it.2. Fan motor or compressor grounded-Replace. 3. Compressor high amps due to capacitor weak-replace capacitor. 4. Burnt wire-rectify. 5.Short circuit-rectify.

House wont cool ..tried to reset breaker in fuse box and breaker outside...this unit is only just over a yr old . the fan thing outdoors is not kicking on..


Does this unit have 2 breakers to it? The model you put down is a PTAC and generally just plugs in to the wall so it would have only 1 breaker. If I recall correctly it's got a 5 year warranty on parts so it may be worth it to check with your local HVAC tech and have them do a diagnostic for you. A good place to start would be Amana who can tell you the authorized service company in your area. They'll get the part for free and should roll the diag fee into the repair cost so you'll only pay for labor (if it even needs a part). Their sales and service number is: 1-800-647-2982. Here's a link to your warranty info:

Amana PTAC stopped working


The relays in these units blow, hence the popping noise you heard, disconnect power and remove the electronic control board. Flip it over and look under the relays, you will see burn marks under the one that blew. You can order a new board from Amana for around $130.

Zoneline PTAC short circuit


Most likely you will need to either replace transformer or there may be a low voltage flat type "car fuse" usually 3 amp or 5 amp for just such an occasion. Good luck!
