col-control problems

PostBy: dogie On: Sun Dec 20, 2009 6:05 pm

Maybe somebody has an idea. I was one of the first to buy from Jerry many years ago. I bought a Pioneer (manual- at that time there were no thermostats) It always worked perfect for me and I even convinced the local coal company to be a dealer for Jerry. In conversations with Jerry, he tried talking me into getting a col-control but why change a good thing. I never had bad motors or fans . The Pioneer just keeps chugging along. Last week the local coal company talked me into trying the col-control on a trial basis. I had to redo(add) one of the motors with it's own plug to fit the col-control assy. but no problem.
Everything worked fine for 3 days- automatic... but now the time on the display is speeding. In a 12hr. time period it becomes 4 hours faster which makes the DAY and NIGHT setup worthless. I NEVER had a problem (manual) with my blower but now with the control it just about runs, but makes a lot of vibration noise and turns very slow when temp is set for 70, real temp shows 67, FR is 99. I disconnect blower from control and plug into wall outlet and it works perfectly, no noise just a lot of beautiful HOT air. Any ideas before I revert back to manual and return the control? Thank God I have yet to pay for it. :(

In another thread the same issue was discussed......here is the reply there:

We spent some time together, on the phone, Friday, 12/11/09. In addition to your description of improper blower operation, you said that the time of day clock on your Coal-trol thermostat would run fast from time to time. With this additional clue, it seemed that you had a bad t-stat cable. We sent one out to you that Friday. With all the discussion of the issue, I'm wondering did you get the cable? If so, is it working properly so far?

Dogie, we're very sorry to hear you've run into a problem. Please call us tomorrow (Monday). Phone number is 315-299-3589. If you rather we contact you, please PM me your contact information and a time that would be good to reach you. We'd like to try to get things working for you so you get to see things working as they should before making your final decision. At the very least, if you decide you want to return it to your dealer, we'd like to coordinate with the dealer so we can get that unit sent back to us for investigation and repair if necessary.
