thermostat appears to be ok I took out the battery and pluged back in and it was getting 24 volts from the unit, unit starts on command, meaning the compressor starts, some times the air handler will start most times no , bad cap?

They only need the furnace/ air handler model number to sell you a new electronic end bell for that motor.

.

All I ask is please respect me and my input by selecting the***RATING LINK***at the top of your page, that is the only way I am credited through the site. Rating does not affect your charges nor ability to refund if not satisfied.

.

If you need to be coached through a full diagnosis/repair,and wiring etc. for up to two days, and wish to be trained to use test instruments...... that goes well beyond' Just a simple Answer' of course, and goes beyond what most other experts here offer.....rate my answer so far positively.. . and I will deliver that training and coaching to you All on the same dime so to speak.

Lacking a positive rating I can spend days helping a person at my own expense and loose my shirt, shorts and socks on the deal.

Phone call offers:

If you wish to accept the companies $25 phone call offer, if indeed they send you one, this will go a *lot faster, but it IS 100% optional... or we can continue here in this dialog box at no additional charge.

sounds like a rip off, I just need the motor model #
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
never mind, I'll pull the motor and get it off of the data plate
HVAC Technician: Phil, Mechanical Engineer replied 11 months ago

I do not appreciate the insult. it is unwarranted. You are correct the model number of the motor is on the motor name plate, but you still need to call shortys so that they can program the new part to match the specifications of the furnace manufacturer.

Read my extensive on line resume, then notice that the site has over 11,000 experts employed, including doctors and lawyers.... still sound like a rip off? all of our credentials are verified by an independent rating agency, those details posted as well.
