Hi! several factor to check out should be done,have you hear if the compressor is humming before this will trip off,this is the signed sound when capacitor is busted,eventually you can test capacitor using tester setting to ohmmeter the two test rod (black and red)of tester attached this to two terminals of capacitor promptly observed tha pointer of tester will deflect to zero reading at initial set up.then reverse the polarity of capacitor on test rod.,observe the pointer will deflect to zero again but gradually the pointer move slowly to zero,meaning you have a good capacitor but if no deflection on tester you have busted capacitor.Sorry, but we don"t sell capacitor,you can try on ac service center or you can surf on website the price type the brand of your ac on internet website it will find it for you.You can also check the overload protection try to reset.Check also the supply source on relay holding coil if your relay is functioning.If your compressor run and still has no cooling effect check the operating current using clamp ammeter if acquire the specific rated current of the compressor w/c tag on compressor unit or in your manual,if you got below your system is under charge.this is a hard work this should be done by qualified a/c technician...have a nice day, thank's
Most of these little compressors don't have a start cap on them. The motors in these little hermetics don't need them. You need to check that athe compressor is getting voltage to it. Check to see if rodents haven't tried to get on top and chew wires. Squirrels can and do cause lots of damage. If the compressor is being "told" to come on, and it doesn't, the compressor is bad. Parts are hard to come by on these little units. You will probably have to contact the manufacturer for a location neer you that sells parts.

The fan will only go on if I spray water from my hose to get it started. I called an ac repair place but they told me it would be $85.00 just to come tell me what the problem was and the guy on the phone told me it was either the capacitor or the motor. I am sure if they come out it will take all of 5 minutes to tell me what is wrong with it. How much is a capacitor and a motor for model 38ckc036?


If you can get the particulars on the parts, (mfg, part number, etc.), you can call an appliance parts supply house and get an exact quote. It sounds more like the capacitor than the motor to me. If the motor will get up to full speed with your (ve ... Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner

The outside unit is no0t able to start the fan spinning on its own. I have been able to manually engage the outside fan by turning the unit off, turning it on, and then manually spinning the fan when it starts up. The unit will then engage the fan and runs fine until the next cycle when it cannot start the fan on its own again. Can you tell me what part needs to be replaced and about how much it will cost?

Does it cost more to have 2 start capacitors on ac We had a A/C Guy come and he added another capacitor to the A/C unit then it went out again. So now I have 2 that are hooked up and one just hanging. But my power bill went from $400.00 to over $700.00. I think what he did is causing my power bill to spike. I am not sure of the make.


A start capacitor is in use for only a split second if it's functioning correctly. What they do in a nut shell is give the motor (or compressor) an extra push to get it started. You also should have a motor run capacitor - don't have to have a star ... Air Conditioners

I have a 561c central air unit. I just replaced the fan motor and capacitor 6 days ago. The unit ran great for just that long now the fan won't come on and the outside unit is hot to the touch, I can assist the fan and it starts and runs great until it reaches the thermostat temp. When it turns off it won't come back on. Is it the start relay switch?


Sounds like you need another capacitor since it will run if you turn it by hand to get it started. If you have a clamp on ammeter check the current draw on the fan motor. ... Air Conditioners

220 was hooked up to this 5th wheel when 110 was needed. The ac comes on but no cold air. I can hear something like a draw (electrical) like the commpressor wants to start then goes off. What could it be burnt up and not giving me cold air? There is a capacitor, start motor that is on the hot side of the capacitor, and also something that looks like a soleniod.


Check the voltage rating of the capacitor. If the cap was only rated and 110 and 220 was supplied, it could have blown the cap.Depending on how long 220 was supplied to the compressor and if the compressor was running, you may have damag ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

I have 2 dometic roof top units on a 2002 MH that I recently purchased. 1 of the units only runs on high speed, the stat has a high low switch, the unit cools fine. The second unit, the comp starts, but the fan only hums, the shaft turns fine. I switched the start relay from the other unit, same result. I suspect that the start winding is open, but haven't checked yet. I am not opposed to replacing the unit because of age, condition of roof cover,and suspected cost of parts. Would appreciate any


Hi, unit # 2 sounds as though the run capacitor may be open, shorted, ect.When you say you changed relay, I assume you were talking about the capacitor. If the motor didn't run when you changed it, you do have a bad winding, or open as it just hums. ... Dometic Air Conditioners
