I have a 5 year old amana furnace that will not light. I replaced the
thermostat and that did not work. I think my pilot light is out but I
cannot find where it is in the unit. I do see a little red light
flashing 4 times. Can you help?
I would suggest that you read more of Bubba's posts, and you would see
that regardless of the problem he recommends purchasing the most
expensive thermostat you can afford. You might come away with the
feeling that his diagnosis has nothing to do with your symptoms. He
really appears to be a frustrated HVAC person who fortunately is not
patronized by many customers. Perhaps because he is dishonest? You decide.
You don't really think I solicit customers in this or any other
newsgroup, do you?
Frustrated?, not many customers?, Dishonest?
You make me laugh. Please don't quit your day job because you wont
make it in the "crystal ball" field or as a psychologist/psychiatrist.
Yes, now you can "Bite Me", right after you finish licking that
No, I do not think you are soliciting customers via the net. No one in
their right mind would bite on such an attempt should you try. I
apologize for suggesting you were once employed, for surely that would
be worthy of Ripley's believe it or not. I think you are a liberal who
feels the world owes you more than you have received, and post comments
not to help, but to cost the questioners more than they would otherwise
incur. Is this dishonest? That is for the readers to decide.
Hell, I dont/didnt really even know what a liberal is. Cant say that I
want or wanted to know, either. Politics is just not my bag and with
the Presidential candidates out there, it sure doesnt help.
C'mon, can you really say you want to vote for Hillary, O'bhama or
McCain? I cant even pick which would be the least worst to vote for.
Actually, Ive never really been employed. Only a couple years of my
life. The rest was spent owning my own companies but you can still
bite me, Ken.
Do you have a logical conclusion pointing to bad 'stat? What kinda
trouble-shooting did you do? Have you jumpered terminal R and W to call
for heat? Or did you check control voltage 24V AC is present? Practice
logic B4 blaming that poor 'stat. If you insist, Honeywell Vision Pro
series is very good. Or on second thought you are trolling, aren't you?
The Charter for this news group does not include assisting home owners
with their individual issues. Many of the people in this news group
make their living by servicing home owner units, thus their attitude
is that you should call a service tech if you want your furnace
fixed. For this newsgroup, that is an appropriate attitude.
If you want a chance at some real help, and not folks egging you on,
Not true. Here is the charter for alt.hvac:
[begin quote from earliest control message in the archive]
alt.hvac Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning discussion
This group will discuss planning, design, implementation and other things
related to commercial HVAC systems.
[end quote from earliest control message in the archive]
Nowhere is the charter does it say this group is for professionals only. A
request for help from a homeowner would qualify as "other things related
to commercial HVAC systems". Not to mention the "discussion" (what a
useless phrase for a text newsgorup) in the tag line.
They may take that attitude if they like, but the Charter does not back
Not too many homes have commercial HVAC systems in them. The few that do
are owned by people that have enough money and brains to call a pro for help
and get it done right, not DIY for free with internet advice! Vrey few
homeowners are interested or qualified to discuss things related to
commercial HVAC systems. Residential HVAC equipment is referred to as
"residential", in the trade. Residential, Commercial, Industrial, and
Institutional are the main designations for HVAC equipment. Now you know,
Sometimes a word is defined by context. For example, "may" might mean
"possibly", or "may" can also mean "permitted".
In the context of the Charter, I'd say that "commercial" means HVAC
systems that are sold commercially.
The alternative, is that if you are right, all of the techs here
discussing residential HVAC systems are having off topic discussion.
