BEWARE OF HIGH VOLTAGE! 220VAC CAN KILL YOU! That said, it sounds like you have a short in the control (24VAC) curcuit to the condenser. A mouse probably made a home in the control compartment of your condenser. BEWARE OF HIGH VOLTAGE! 220VAC CAN KILL YOU!

Turn tstat off. Outside at condenser carefully remove the low voltage wires (likely two) inside the small wire nuts. Cap these two wires back (unhooked from condenser) with the wire nuts. Turn cooling back on. If the fuse blows again you will know for sure it's somewhere in that wire you have a short, and as the guys said, likely rodents. If it does not, then you will likely need to replace the contactor, or, if your lucky it's in the small wire in between where you unhooked and the contactor. You definitely have a short, just gotta find it. Good Luck!!

There is probably a short in the control wires to the o.d. unit. Look at the small wire that runs with the copper lone set, at the o.d. unit. See if they are touching? Look inside of the o.d. unit. If there are any wires that may be rubbing on some copper. Also, if your copper line set, at the indoor unit, runs under the house, varmits like to chew their way in. Process of elimination. May be a burnt coil at the o.d. units contactor. Hope this helps and please work safe!

My Coleman Evcon furnace blows cold air even when the unit is turned off. How do I stop it from doing that?


Hello Rhonda Killalea,

On MOST furnaces built since 1960. there is provision
for the BLOWER on the old type THERMOSTATS.

BLOWER SWITCH ... has two positions

"ON" and "AUTO"...
(turn blower from on to "OFF" (or correct wiring)).

"AUTO" is the POSITION your thermostat NEEDS
to be on...

Only then will your heater's blower be under
control of those internal temperature controls.

I am including a SAMPLE page from the OWNER's
MANUAL... (a wild guess of which "EVCON" model
you might have)...

Without YOUR MODEL NUMBER... your answers
are going to be completely generic (pretty useless).

You will also need to disclose what model
THERMOSTAT you are using... while you are
LOOKING...

Try to note the FUEL you are using, HEATING
or HEATING-and-COOLING...

ELSE... my only suggestion would be to look
at the WIRES... note their color and CREATE
a TRUTH TABLE between the "typical" R,G,Y,& B
wires ( telephone wires ) and the ACTUAL
SCREW-TERMINAL designations...
Black, Brown, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue,
Purple, Gray & White... industry colors for
the possible TERMINAL designations... (and more)

THEN...
Go to the HEATER (air-handler or compressor)
terminal block and VERIFY .... The OLD FASHION
Red, White, Black and Green have a TERMINAL
MATCH from the thermostat to the HEATER.

Hope this helps...

Bonaire Vulcan controller cct board 10 amp fuse keeps blowing


Obviously a direct short. Take pic, remove all wires, replace fuse. Wire by wire, turning power back on each time until fuse pops. When it does, there's your problem.

My frige & freezer do not cool,light & freezer fan run,compressor & coil fan do not run,air is blowing out of air vent in freezer,no cooling at all


If the compressor isn't running, the refrigerator or freezer won't cool - period. Hopefully, by now, you've had a repair technician come and troubleshoot the problem.

My coleman central electric furnace only blows cool air


The AC unit outdoors must be running and rejecting heat by its air flowing through it the 2 copper lines are the refrigerant lines, the fatter one should be "beer can cold" if not its low on refrigerant or not running.

Central air blows 3amp fuse


Hello, check the thermostat wiring between the indoor unit and outiside unit and make sure it is secure. Also check the contactor coil on the outside unit and make sure none of the wires are loose and touching metal. You csn also unhook the wires and put them back one at a time and see which one blows the fuse.

We have a Coleman Evcon air conditioning unit model brcs036b and we cannot get it to turn on nor can we find if there are any fuses. the heater works but the actual fan motor for the air conditioner...


Check your stat. is it set properly on cooling, and low enough to turn the unit on, with power on and the stat calling for cooling you should at least get the fan and the out door to kick on, if not your stat or the transformer could be bad. there is a reset on the transf. on some of the unit that could be tripped
