Here's a Tech to Tech ?

We've all come across Carrier lockout boards. LP, HP open locks out. But it also has the current loop to lockout if the compressor should be running but it senses no current draw from the...

Reversing Valve Coil?

A 20 - 40 dollar part, takes longer to get to it than to change it.

Can't cost too much.

I'd say it's a DIY thing.

Dye

No, you can't DIY unless you are EPA certified to work with refrigerants.

But, I will say that if you find a company or a Tech who uses dye you maybe in good hands. Using dye means they have a "I...

Great post Robyn

Wordy is very good here. The more info you provide helps our wheels turn in the right direction.

I agree with Dave in that you have a leak. In heat mode a shortage of refrigerant is less...

Match the colors at the stat with the termination at the airhandler. If blue is Y in the airhandler then it should also be Y at the stat etc..

Coleman-Evcon,

Luxaire, Frazer Johnston, and low end York are the exact same units. Also Carrier uses the same piston / metering device. You can change the outdoor unit with any of the afore mentioned brands and...

I sant her all the manuals and the wiring diagram for this unit. And they were quite happy.

I'm thinking it's time to close this thread.

Ive heard of $49.95 but never $80 tune up

But, and I hate to say it, this is a scam for must companies to get thier foot in your door and "find" something wrong. They lose money paying a "tech" to show up but make a bucket load on un needed...

Fans are a godd idea

it will push hot air from the top of the room to the bottom to mix with cold air from vents, giving a cooler more even temp.

Sorry

But unless you have a fully stocked residential a/c van your not going to fix this tonight.

Could be the fan or capacitor or both. Since it spins once and stops I'm thinking fan motor. Which...

Super Boost

Is ok, it just gives an extra kick in the butt to get the compressor started. Not uncommon with a new "tight" compressor.

A big hisss on the 3.5? What do the pipes feel like now?

First off

it is impossable to check the refrigerant level on a system that will only run for one second. Unless it is a package unit with a data plate refrigerant charge and taking it all out and wieghing it...

Well said furd

It is much easier and cost less to recover from set back in heat than it is in A/C.

Set the a/c and leave it.

I wouldn't put Ducane or Goodman in my enemies house.

American Standard owns and makes Trane.

Nordyne makes Amana, Whirlpool, Westinghouse, and a host of other brands.

Food for thought (not an endorsment) I occasionally have to work at a building...

Well

Problem #1 indicates to me that you need another company. They should have changed the valve rather than tighten them.

Cut the PVC drain line

Attach the vacuum hose and suck the clog out.

Since you'v eblow into the pipe a long time it's probably prety well packed in there. Your going the wrong way.

Use the wet dry in vac mode.

BAck to home depot

Since you a/c probably drains into a plumbing vent you may need to cut into the drain.

I'd puck up pvc fittings to reduce the 1 7/8" vac hose down to 3/4" to get a good seal on the hose and fit...

Leaks

An electronic detector will get you in the general area if not right to the leak. Soap bubbles will pinpoint the leak with bubbles after the electronic finds the area it is in.
