They never showed up and won't return my calls now. He said when I talked to him last night they were completely booked and running ragged with the heat snap...we are doing ok though. Nice and 70 in here with the whole house fan going

Wow, I know that feeling! Two years ago our house a/c was icing up indicating the system was needing a boost in the refrigerant. I made an appointment with a local company for 10am on a Wednesday almost two weeks in advance. I took the whole week off work to go ahead and take care of some chores and do some junk yard browsing. Guess what, they didn't show, I called and hounded them and they kept saying "a truck is on the way". Well, 8 pm Thursday night the guy shows up, and claims his boss told him that my appt was Saturday afternoon! Man it seems if you want something done on time and correctly you have to do it yourself!

I can understand about not having AC, lived with it in my early days. We haven't even put our window units in this year yet, it was 90* on Sunday too, just using fans.

 

Tell them you have a pregnant woman at the house that can't take the heat, maybe they will step a little faster.

In Alabama..you NEED an AC..its dangerous not to have one.

 

You'll survive, we have several days this week that are going to be 103deg with 50% chance of rain. We have had up to 106deg in our living room and in 2011 we had over 51 days in a row in the triple digits

No I wont..heat causes my BP to drop out and I pass out..I have to spend the summer months inside because of my heart..I have a pace maker but I still fall out with the heat..hereditary heart /vessel disease.

Fixed. No questions asked. He put in a new blower new power leads from the blower to the controller and a new controller card. He said it looks like the blower shorted back fed power to the card and fried it.

Said that's only the second time he has ever seen that. He said there is no protection to prevent that fault.

That stinks. I hope you don't have to wait a week to get help.

Looks like it fried the card again. I threw a huge fit on the phone and he said he'd be here in an hour. That was at 8. I told him I'm not stupid.

Back up running. New card installed. He said he if it happens again he is replacing the entire furnace. Which seems to be over the top.

I am going to borrow a data logger from work. It can be tied into the power and monitor the voltage and amperage for 24 hours and graph it. That way I can see if my voltage to the furnace is surging.

The logger is a good idea. Go to your breaker panel and make sure none of the lugs are loose.

I did that 2 months ago when I ran my new feed back to the addition, but I will check them again.

 

I want to be able to rule out beyond a reasonable doubt that the problem isn't on my end.  I am about ready to stop at lowes tonight, pick up cable, a new disconnect, and run it back to the furnace.  It's only about 20 feet.  I actually probably have the cable already, just need a disconnect.

Bought a junction box to put on the yard pole under the meter so I could branch out to other buildings. Went to tighten down the lugs and found one was cross threaded from the factory. Felt like it was tight until I investigated.  :mad2:
