Our purpose for including this page is to help you find and repair simple, often overlooked problems to save you money. We keep parts in stock for almost every brand of system. If you know you have a bad part and are competent to change it yourself, we would be happy to sell you the parts. If you wish to look these things over and see if any of these suggestions help you, please do so. If you simply wish for us to come and
repair your system, Please Call Us Now at 1-800-886-2188.
1. Make sure you have gas to your building. Often we find the meter has been turned off either intentionally or by mistake.
2. If your furnace has a pilot, carefully follow the manufacturers instructions to light the pilot.
3. Change your filter, if you have not done so already.
4. If your system flues through the side wall through a PVC pipe, make sure the pipe is not plugged with snow, a bird's nest, or an Easter egg.
5. Check to see if your thermostat is set to the heat position.
6. Look for a small reset button on the side of the blower if you have a downflow furnace. If this is the problem more than one time, please call for service.
7. If the Furnace has a digital control board, the board may have a blinking lite that will correspond with a code on the wiring diagram. This code might give you a clue to the problem.
1. Check all breakers.
2. Check for reset buttons. If the temperature is below 32 we do not recommend that you reset the oil failure button yourself, as this could damage the compressor.
3. Check or clean all coils.
4. See if the coil in the refrigerated space is frozen up. If it is and you can afford the down time, turn off the refrigeration system, but leave the indoor fan running to thaw it out.
1. Check your breaker, often times the breaker to the outdoor unit is blown by a short cycle or power interruption.
2. Check to see if there is ice on the large line that enters the unit. If there is, turn the unit off for 3 hours with the indoor fan still running. If you haven't already, put a new filter in your furnace. If the ice re appears even the next day, you should call for service.
3. Check your outdoor unit to see if the coil needs cleaned. This is a common problem if cottonwood trees nearby are shedding.
4. Make sure you don't have boxes or furniture blocking any of the main Return air vents.
5. Check to see if your thermostat is set to the cool position.
6. Check to see if the very small wire that runs from your house to your AC has been damaged in some way. Often times dogs chew through this wire.
7. Check your indoor coil to see if it needs cleaning. While this is often quite hard to do, some of our customers sucessfully do it themselves. Most of the dirt and lint will be on the entering air side (the underside in most systems).

Fix it Yourself?
Weber Refrigeration Heating and Air Conditioning
1. Check to see if water is coming out the drain. Most whole house humidifiers have a drain, and when they are running they should be putting in 2 to 5 times more water than you need, and water should be running out of the drain connection.
2. Most humidifiers have a replaceable filter that should be changed every year. Turn off the water and pull your old one out and bring it to us. We keep most major brands in stock.
Commercial Ice Machines
1. Clean all of the parts that have water moving through or around them. This is the most common problem with Ice Makers.
2. Make sure it has water to it.
3. Check the breaker.
4. Make sure the water going to it is cold. Often restaurants get a cross connection that occasionally sends hot water to the Ice machine.
5. Check for a manual reset button. These can trip because of an interrupted water or power supply.
6. If the Ice Machine has a digital control board, the board may have a blinking lite that will correspond with a code on the wiring diagram. This code might give you a clue to the problem.
