Thanks Bob1425. I'll get another one and give it a try. Does it seem odd that both sides would fail at the same time?

Condensor fan/compressor not running

Great forum. You guys have been great with my heating questions; hope you don't mind an AC one now that summer's almost here.

I installed a Hamilton central air unit 17 years ago and it has been...

Update: Motor is in and working fine. For anyone else attempting this for the first time, I found it was easiest to put the plastic coupling on the oil pump, then fit the motor into it.

I am not the expert here, so take everything I say with a big grain of salt.

I've installed electric radiant floor heat from above, under tile, without any problems; it works great and was easy. ...

Thanks Grady. I ordered a motor, and will tackle it next week, when it looks like we won't be needing heat, just in case.

Thanks again Grady. I like that much better, and no spilling oil.

Removing the motor is as siimple as disconnecting the wires, undoing the bolts and pulling it out? No surprises there? Just as...

Update: I did rewire it, so the primary control is always on, and the limit turns the burner on when called for. I also adjusted the air (got my buddy to come over, who has a CO2 gauge too) and the...

New Burner Motor? Which one?

I think I have a burner motor going bad. It's a 30 year old Wayne MSR on a warm air furnace. Every once in a while, it will go into lockout, and the reason seems to be the circuit breaker on the...

I'm not sure I understand. Normally a heat exchanger to make domestic hot water would heat a storage tank, so I don't see how this would save any space. You would have the same 30 gallon tank, but...

Thanks Doughess. I've been hesitant to mess with that, for fear of making it worse. But I suppose if I mark it, I can always put it back to where it was. I'll give it a try.

Thanks Doughess. It does seem wasteful to be running the ignitor continuously. It's also noticably quieter once the spark shuts off, and saving some electricity I assume.

I have been able to...
