Billy :

What is the make or model, and age of the unit?

Customer:

the blower or tha condencing unit?

Billy :

which are you referring to as quitting? Indoor blower fan or outdoor condenser fan?

Customer:

indoor blower on the furnace

Billy :

Thank you....that would be the number I need then...furnace make and model

Customer:

it is an acclaim weather king

Customer:

where would the number be?

Billy :

Inside the upper section. Also remove bottom door and tell me if thermostat wires attach to a circuit board

Customer:

k one sec

Customer:

i dont see any numbers. the blower works fine when i run the furnace

Customer:

when i run the ac it runs for awhile then kicks off

Billy :

The heat function uses a different terminal than ac. Also s different speed on the motor.

Customer:

is that a chocolate lab mix on your profile?

Customer:

does that mean it is my the?rmostat

Billy :

To find out why it quits requires using a meter to see if motor is getting power but not running...or not getting power.

That is a Newfoundland...my pal Sherman

Customer:

thermostat*

Billy :

Not thermostat.....will be in circuit board or the motor itself

Customer:

beautiful dog

Customer:

the i need a repairman?

Billy :

Thanx!

Customer:

i have a choc lab

Customer:

i have a tester but it just test if there is power but doesnt test the voltage or anything.

Billy :

This is a hands on electrical testing situation...It would be safer to call a tech...I really wish you luck

Customer:

would a hvac tech be able to repair? or do i need an electrician

Billy :

I would start with an hvac tech.
