Customer Question
I have a rheem...

I have a rheem thermosat and it been nearly 80 in her all day. Been blowing warmer air thru vents. Thermostat set at 65 but its been 78 to 80 all day. Its in high 80s outside . Thermo stat says program + 2 what is that how can

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

I change the inside filter today is there something I can do with the outside unit

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I'm not sure how hard is it

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Can it fix itself is it just because it's so hot outside does the outside unit have to be cleaned as well

Hello, if its been over 95F outside today and your outside unit has not had is condenser cleaned in a few years, cleaning that will be a crucial step one, CLICK HERE PLEASE FOR A VIDEO

next step will be locate the high pressure safety cut out switch mounted inside the unit, on the 3/8" copper tube and press the red button on it.

If that fails, get back to me, I have more instructions for you.

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.
