Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

My air conditioner won't turn on. When thermostat is set to cool, the furnace blower kicks on but the compressor and outdoor fan do not.


Answers :

Sounds like your not getting a low voltage signal to the condenser, if your Air handler is in the attic check your secondary drain pan it might be off on the float switch, if your air handler is in a closet you need to check your float switch, it will have some wires coming out of it. Hope that helps you get started.

Hello i have Carrier Weathermaker 38tkb air conditioner unit. It's about 6 years old and when i got home today, the unit itself wasn't working. Although the blower fan in the furnace inside was blowing, the fan on the a/c unit outside was not moving. I can hear a humming sound coming from it and once in a while, you hear it trying to kick in (the lights in the house even dim a bit, which is unusual), but it never kicks in. The top center of the unit is extremely hot to the touch. I've checked


The humming noise and dimming of the lights is an indication something in the outdoor unit is locked up or has failed.Check the capacitor as it may have gone bad. If the capacitor is good, then you either have a failed motor, a failed co ... Air Conditioners

Compressor problem? My outdoor unit comes on with the fan blowing just fine. Then I hear a buzzing sound for about 2-3 seconds which I believe is the compressor trying to come on. (Incidentally, a couple of lights inside the house seem to dim at the same time that the buzzing sound occurs.) The buzzing sound reoccurs every couple minutes while the outdoor unit fan and the indoor blower both continue to run. I have shut down both the outdoor and indoor units for a couple hours and tried restarti

When I set tstat to call for a/c, compressor outside comes on. Blower on furnace does not. When I manually rotate fan limit switch on furnace wall, blower comes on, blows cold air, and then goes off when I release the fan limit switch.

They were connected at the onset of the problem. I am not sure where to re

I have a 15 year old HVAC system that uses a Carrier Weather Maker 8000 furnace. When we returned from vacation last week, we noticed that the furnace blower motor would not turn on. The A/C compressor and condenser fan would turn on, but not the evaperator/furnace blower fan. I started a component test, but the LED just continuously blinked rapidly. The code associated with this is "Line voltage (115V) polarity reversed or twinning problem. How do I fix this?


The control board seems to be detecting reverse polarity, and my first thought is that the relay contactors are oxidized, but you could also have a bad startup capacitor, and/or control board.\015\012The only reason I say control board is becau ... Air Conditioners

I have an Intertherm S3BA-048KA Split AC system which has stopped blowing cold air. Indoor blower is working fine. Outdoor fan is not working. I have reset breakers (indoor/outdoor) without success. I can hear a hum coming from outdoor compressor even when outdoor breaker is in off position. I had a problem with a System Breaker last year at the blower due to condensation leading to internal corrosion of the breaker. I replaced with a "suitable substitute" (same rating), not OEM.

Goodman outdoor a/c unit top fan stopped working while the family was away from home and now the compressor will not turn on. Only thing happening when a/c turned on inside is the indoor unit kicks on and the outdoor top fan begins humming and getting very hot to touch. Unit is only 5-7 years old. It is a Goodman CKL42-1L. Please, anyone with suggestions is appreciated. Definetly do not have money to replace the entire unit at this time.

Furnace will not light burners and blower motor doesn't come on, but exhaust fan comes on immediately when turning furnace on. Turned on A/C to make sure blower operates and it does. The combustion chamber door says there is a red button to reset inside, but the only thing I can find is like a thermistor with maybe a button on it and it is not kicked. What should I try next?


The reset button should be a small round red button that you just push in to reset. If the induced draft motor comes on as soon as thermostat calls for heat then the next thing to check is the ignitor. It may be a hot surface or spark ignitor.It shou ... Air Conditioners
