    Wyounger

    Should I call him and tell him that his ductwork seems to be wrong as I get different flows from different vents?

    Is he going to be offended?

    I have a 3 ton A/C system. At the far ends of the house it does not give real good air flow. It has dip switches for setting the air flow. Can I set the switches from 1200 CFM to say 1600 CFM to...

    Tech came out Saturday (about 92 degrees at the time) and installed a Supco SP6 super boost on the Carrier and we fired up the diesel generator and started the A/C and it fired right up. An amp...

    DocHolliday,

    Tell me a little more about this pump down system you say I could convert to. I have never seen reference to one of these so my ignorance is infinite.

    bwal2

    Tech is finally coming out this saturday and he is bringing one of the hard start kits that you were speaking of. Seems that may be just the trick to get this compressor started.

    bwal2,

    Thanks for the information. Yeah I knew that the soft start kit was added to the air conditioner. They add them so that smaller generators will start the air conditioner than would...

    Steve, You are saying that even though the system seemed to run well last year (filled last spring) that could still be the problem with it this year? You can see how that seems confusing to a...

    Steve,

    Would that make sense with the fact that I ran the air last summer with no trouble?

    Steve Wiggins,

    It does have a time delay. If I go to the digital thermostat and push mode = off to mode = cool. It starts a delay and after I want to say 2 minutes the blower kicks in and then...

    Jacob,

    The transformer was set up for 240 originally and that is what I am applying. When I ran the unit off of 208 I did not make any changes ( only out of ignorance that I was supposed to). ...

    I checked the fuses at the outdoor unit and both were good. That is they showed a short on the ohm meter. The HVAC techs here where I work believe the problem is in the 24 volt contact side of...

    Tecman.

    How much difference does the hard start kit typically make on these motors? Is it a cheap enough type of add-on that it is worth trying just as a matter or course. I know we don't...
