We have a Lennox unit MN # G24M3-75A-7 with a Sure light

we have a Lennox unit MN # ***** with a Sure light board cat no. 63K8901.The blower/heater is indoors. The unit recently started making a "thud" type of noise after it starts. It does this sporadically. Sometimes after it has been running for a while, it again makes this "thud" type of noise. It is like it is trying to shift gears! Is it something to do with the blower or the circuit board? All of the wires are properly connected and tight. We thought it might have been the thermostat, however it is doing the same thing with the new one. Thank you.

during the summer our A/C can be set to 78 degrees but it will never reach that temperature or cycle off, it will just keep running unless I continue turning up the temp setting higher.

Thanks help. Contracter came back and replaced unit with a

Thanks for your help. Contracter came back and replaced unit with a 2.5 ton. My question is if it's 60 degrees out at night and a/c is set at 72, and house temp is 72, can i open the windows to cool it down? I did that last night becuase it was hot in here and I didn't want to turn the ac down to 65. contractor told my husband that we have to keep house buttoned up all day long and set it to 72. I can't seem to wrap my head around doing that when it's colder outside than inside. So my questions are: 1.Can I open windows at night to cool it down if temp and humidity is low. 2. For today and next couple of days if daytime is about 75 and night is 55-60, can we turn it off then turn on friday am when daytime temp should reach 80? Thanks!

I've used this service before and had good results so

I've used this service before and had good results so I'm back with an AC issue. Today I was doing some painting so I pulled off my Honeywell Wifi thermostat from its holder/socket and unscrewed the holder/socket from the wall so that I could paint behind it. After an hour or so, I reattached the socket/holder and reseated the thermostat. The Thermostat connected to my wifi, reacquired the active heat/AC setting and reignited the AC. I live in Texas. It's hot so the AC was warranted.After a while I noticed it getting hot. Long story short, the AC is blowing hot air because the compressor outside is not running. I've since turned the entire unit off and on by power switch a few times thinking I could reset it with a "reboot". Didn't work. Checked my circuit breaker in the garage. No issues. pulled the fuse and reseated it at the compressor. No help.The compressor was working just a few hours ago. Now nothing. Any clue?
