I know I come up with some random topics, but our central AC/ furnace is malfunctioning. 

The problem is that the fan will not turn off at all. It still blows cold air and all but the only way to turn it off is to flip the breaker. Tried replacing the thermostat in hopes of a cheap fix and of course that didn't work. Really don't want to call a repairmen out after taking it in the ass on taxes last month. Husband is sort of handy so if we can DIY this it would be great.

@2earls  Had this happen once, and it ended up being a stuck fan relay.   Sucks when stuff goes out!  My system just died and having to wait and wait and wait and wait for all the warranty stuff to go through so the units can get replaced.  SO ANNOYING dealing with warranty sometimes.  Side note: never buy LG lol.

@DoomKittythat's what the husband thinks it is. I am clueless and only found out today we have to get on the roof to access it. I don't know if he's up to it after working 6 days this week but I will offer to hold the ladder. I'm not scared of heights but I am old enough to wonder if I should be climbing ladders. Besides I have nothing to offer other than moral support. 

So you replaced yours rather than fixing it? I wonder if it is an easy repair or way over our heads?

@2earls  Oh i fixed it.   I had a friend help me who knows more about that kind of thing.  With the type i had at the time it was pretty easy.  At least from what i remember lol.  It was at a different place i lived a while ago.   Where i live now has those mini-splits things.  But the units are leaking freon apparently and have to get replaced, so for now I'm making do with a window unit.  At least it's not heaps hot yet where i live.  You could probably google the model number to see how easy of a fix for your unit it would be.  I think with mine i even found a youtube vid with my same model which makes it lots easier.

Got my new central air unit installed day before yesterday and life is pleasant again in the Earls house. Quite a production. Had a crane come to get it on the roof.

I said to everyone "yeah it will come once the hot weather is over", but I think we set a record high the day before so not too late after all. Anyone want to buy a slightly used portable AC unit? JK, the damn thing uses as much power as the big one.

Have a cool weekend everyone!
