Thermostat Clicks But Heater Not Turning On Fan Works AC Runs But Heat No Start Repair Video

Welcome back to Kung Fu Maintenance! Wanted to tell you, show you, about one I had the other day. What happened was right at the end of the day I saw that there was a work order for a no heat call. Went and checked it out. The hydronic valves were turned off and turned those on. Came over to the thermostat and turned it on but nothing turned on. I could see. the flame signal here. Much like this one. Now usually when you do it you will hear the little click when it turns on. On that particular one I did hear the click and that kind of signified to me that the thermostat was working. I turned the fan to on. The fan kicked on. I turned the A/C on and the AC kicked on. Turned it to cool and auto. Lowered the temperature down and everything kicked on there right away. So I knew at that point that it wasn’t the service door switch. Didn’t know what it was but what I did was pullk the cover off.

Now before I do that I want to show you the little click. I will raise my temperature up so the heater will turn on a little bit. You hear that click? That’s signifying that my unit is getting ready to fire up as the heater has now been signaled to turn on. But underneath. I will show you here. What you have got is your red cold jumper and the red hot jumper wire. That fatter red wire that is back there. I got kind of lucky and noticed right away that the insulation part, even much like it is here, the insulation portion was up inside the screw port. So All I had to do was loosen the screw a little bit. Move the wire down a tiny bit so that the wire was actually making contact with the screw port so we would have continuity.

And that’s all it was. The screw instead of clamping the wire down was clamping the insulation down. Insulation was making contact so that the heater wasn’t turning on even though it was sending the call for heat from the thermostat. It wasn’t being transmitted through the hot wire so. Nice easy fix. Thought I would show it to you guys. Hope it saves you some trouble.You know.

It’s rare but these are the things that happen and a little bit on the troubleshooting that happens. Obviously if a wire is not making contact there things are not going to turn on. And one other thing I had checked on this which should be checked when a thermostat is not working. One thing to check on theses is the jumper pin or the switch setting. This one has a little switch down here where right is for gas heating and left is for electric heating. That particular one was set for electric heating which is common to all of my other units for hydronic heating. So it wasn’t that. So again it was that insulation that was blocking. So that the wire wasn’t making contact on the RH wire. Anyway. Thanks for watching! .

Home Maintenance : How to Balance HVAC Air Flow

Home Maintenance : How to Balance HVAC Air Flow

Hi, I’m Tim Gipson, and I’m going to talk to you about how to balance your HVAC. Now, when your HVAC system is installed in your house, your installer actually goes through some steps where they look at how much intake and your system is designed for the amount of space you have. So they look at your intake and then they look at your output. And your diffusers. So there’s certain things that they do to make sure that that airflow is balanced and they actually have testing equipment. Now despite the efforts of going through that you may run into circumstances at a different time of the year, various parts of your house may be warmer or cooler than other parts of the house.

So there are some things that you can do to balance that out, and to even out those comfort areas in your house. So here we have our – what we call a diffuser. Now all of these diffusers are adjustable. All of the ones that you’ll see in your house, most of them are adjustable. And they simply have a little slide knob on the side. So as you slide this to one side, it actually changes the angle of these blades up in here, that if we slide it all the way over you can actually close it off. So if you have a bedroom say that you are not using, you can actually put more airflow into other areas of your home. You can actually close off these diffusers and close that door and not actually heat or cool that portion of your house. And that can provide some energy savings. And by sliding this back now if this particular room where we had – if it tended to be in the summer a little colder than other areas of the house, then what we can do is actually close down these vents and that will actually restrict some of the airflow into this room.

So to keep this – keep the cool air. Same thing in the winter. Now most of your typical homes now, if they are two level homes, they actually have two level units. They have a unit for upstairs and a unit for downstairs. But if you happen to live in a home where you have just one unit, in the winter you may want to have most of your warm air coming downstairs, because warm air rises. And then in the summer where you may want to have most of your air going upstairs to offset the warmer temperatures up there. So those are some times where you may run into balancing. So I’m Tim Gipson and that’s how to balance your HVAC system. .

Gas Oven Won’t Heat – How to Repair (Part 2 of 2), Replace Ignitor

Gas Oven Won’t Heat – How to Repair (Part 2 of 2), Replace Ignitor

– Alright everyone, welcome to Tomahawk DIY. Today I’m going to show you how to get the igniter unscrewed here the easy way. You can check out my other video that shows the troubleshooting to reach this point and but I neglected to show how to actually remove it easily. So let’s take a look at that. See the other video to get to this point and this is how you get the igniter off. I’m going to come under the oven. And there’s two bolts and a screw we need to undo right back there, these two bolts. Careful not to drop them or lose them. Okay, we got the two bolts. Now let’s get this screw. So, screw right there. Again, save yourself some headache, be sure you don’t drop them. It’d be hard to retrieve them under the oven.

In the other video, I already showed disconnecting the cables and the igniter right here and right there. So with those two out, that’s going to let the whole burner assembly slide out. We’re going to come up here, undo this bolt. With that bolt out, we can… get the entire igniter assembly out and then take the bolts off here. We’ll put the new one back on. Alright, so we undo the bolts that are holding this igniter in place. Now, I’ll include a link down below to Amazon where you can pick up a replacement igniter and once you’ve got your igniter off, you put the new one back on. Just reverse the entire process. Alright, with the igniter back on and before I put this back In, we need to get the leads, the wire leads, reconnected.

So we’ll undo the wire nuts. I’ll have to get these… wires off. May take a little bit of work. Now, I don’t know that it makes a difference on which one connects to which one, but we’re going to connect the same way. The red one… on this side and the white one on the other. Let’s put your wires together into the wire nut. And twist it on. Alright, with the wire nuts back, if the new igniter’s not working, probably the first thing to check is to make sure these are getting good contact with your wires. Now we can slide the entire assembly back in. We’re going to start by getting the wires down. And then after that, it’s a matter of putting the bolts back in the way you took them out and testing your igniter.

Alright, after you’ve got your wires threaded in up here and your burner, this is an important part, don’t forget to keep the burner lined up over the gas tip right here. You’ll know it’s in good spot when your bolt holds her on and this is right over the gas line. If you missed that, you might have some problems with gas coming in the wrong spot. Okay, we’ve almost got these two bolts back in.

And then one screw, that screw goes right there. And that holds the burner assembly in place. Alright, while you’re under here get your wires plugged back in. The red one on this side. And the white one… over on this side. Alright. Snap that together. With those back, come back inside and do the bolt on the top of the burner. So that’s the bolt right here. With the wires reconnected, let’s test and make sure our oven’s gonna work. (beeping) So turn it on. Okay, there we see an igniter lighting up.

Let’s see if we got a flame now. Looks hot enough for a fire to me. Ah there we go, the burner’s on. So there you have it. Now you can go back to my other video to check out the rest of the disassembly. Let’s turn this off before it gets everything too hot. Sorry, you can go back to my other video now to check out the rest of the reassembly. Obviously if you’ve done tests like this, make sure everything turns off and cools down before you get back in the oven. Make sure you’re being safe in everything you do. Don’t forget to subscribe, like the video, leave some comments and pick up some parts on Amazon. Have a great day. .
