I have a York heat pump and my defrost board was bad. I

Hey, I have a York heat pump and my defrost board was bad. I installed a new one, all the wires matched up and I swapped one at a time to make sure they wouldn't be mixed up. I also pulled the main fuse/circuit breaker before starting. Got the new board installed and I have no power to my indoor thermostat board now. Got any ideas? I have also reinstalled the old defrost board to verify that the new one wasn't bad.

I am installing a Daikin split unit Model #4MXS36NMVJU. The

I am installing a Daikin split unit Model #4MXS36NMVJU. The installation manual is not clear on the circuit breaker size and wire size required from the house to the outside unit. Is it a 20 amp breaker and #14AWG wire for the 240 volt? This is a guess from the electrical specifications and page 13 of the installation manual - but is it enough? Wire length will be about 35 feet.You help would be greatly appreciated.Don

I have a 4-Ton Rheem model RRNA-B048 Series, I can hear the

I have a 4-Ton Rheem model RRNA-B048 Series, I can hear the heater kick-in and the flame come on, for about 15 seconds while the fan is running. Then the flame shuts off and no heat comes inside the house. If I reset the breaker it comes back on for about 15 seconds, then the flam dies, while the fan continues to work.JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?Customer: The thermostat is set at 72, and the filters were recently replaced. The A/C part of the unit was running fine until I decided to fire up the heater because of the weather.JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: I inspected the gas tubes, all five of them, and the inside ends are kind of rusty. Could cause the problem?JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I had a couple of technicians sent by AHS who claimed the all five burner tubes needed to be replaced. They claim that a hornet's nest caused the tubes to be clogged, rusting the far right one. The only thing that I found rusting was the upper cover plate, which I refabricated in my workshop.

We have Lennox EL296UHV series gas furnace. The other day

We have Lennox EL296UHV series gas furnace. The other day the house took a power surge. Now the furnace does not work and the control board (83W88) shows the following code:1. Power on, mini breaker set, cover off blower compartment and controller visible.2. Hold down cover sensor switch3. LED in center of control board shows the number 3. for a second and then flashes rapidly about 6 times.4. The mini breaker then trips and the LED goes out.A local service rep came to the house and said we needed to replace the controller board and blower for about $2,000.We found the part online for $200 and replaced it ourselves.Unfortunately we still have the same problem. No damage was visible on the old board (both front and back of the circuit board).We are trying to figure out what the 3. error means and if there is something else we should be looking to replace.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Questions you might consider asking
  • My handler comes on, but the compressor won't start up. I've done such things as switch the circuit breaker, flip the switch on the handler and change the batteries out in the thermastat. When I try and crank it up, the fan seems like it's about to come on, then makes a struggling sound.
  • I have an Amanda a/c AP148DS and will not turn on. I checked the circuit breaker and wall outlet and there is power. I also verified that the reset button on the plug was pushed in
  • Our air conditioner isn't working and our trane thermostat is blank. Our home is only 5 months old! Help! We already checked the circuit breaker.
