From your description, seems like compressor is seizing when hot, tapping it shakes the piston loose then it seizes up again after a while.

My unit is 4 years old. I always turn it off when I leave for work in the am and turn it back on when I get home in the pm. Last night I turned it on at 7:30pm. When I went to the front of the house about 45 minutes later, I noticed the unit outside was trying to turn on but would immediately turn off. I checked the breakers in the garage, turned them off and back on but still had the same problem. The fan inside the house is running but unit outside will not kick on. I looked for a magic

Dry pad I went up to check the MasterCool to make sure the belt was on properly, because it was making a small thump when it turned on. I turned the circuit breakers for pump and fan off at cooler box. Belt was fine. Didn't notice if the pad was wet or not, but it had been nice and cold just before I went up on the roof. Turned the circuit breakers on, came back downstairs and noticed about 4 hours later that I wasn't getting any cool air at all. What could I have done? (I did bring the pu

Our Carrier 38ckc036350 is not working - the outdoor unit was very hot to the touch and will not turn on -turned it off at the thermostat - later when the unit cooled down turned it back on via the thermostat and it would start to kick on, but then stop - no breakers were thrown. Unit will be 7 years old in the middle of July '10 and am wondering: 1. what could the problem be & 2. will any of this be under warranty?


The first thing I would check is to see the condensing coil is clean. Take a garden house and wash it thoroughly. If it is severely clogged you may need to remove the top and clean it with water pressure blowing from the inside out. This may stop the ... Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner

AC Condenser motor will stop at 1pm but inside unit is still running but no AC. If I turn the AC unit breaker unit off and then an hour later turn it back on. The unit runs fine all day until 1pm. Had a tech out and he checked the system and it's fine. He said I may have a thermostat problem and he would need to see the manual. My theromastat is programable (Carrier, 4 zone, Comfort II) with 3 remote temp sensors. How do I troubleshoot this?

My thermostat is set on 72....but shows it is 76 in the house. I shut it off yesterday in case it was freezing up. 2 hours later, turned it back on and it cooled great the rest of the evening. I woke up at 3:00 am this morning and was doing the same thing. I shut it off for several hours, now has cool air blowing, but not as cool as it should and still shows 76. Cool flashing on the thermostat.


It sounds as thought the coils on the unit need to be cleaned, make sure it is draining, if it still freezes up after cleaning coils and checking for draining then the unit has a leak and needs to fixed/charged. Hope this helps tim ... Air Conditioners

I have a Fedders portable air conditioner Model AEP09D2B. I have been using the heater feature at night lately. I turned it off when I got up this morning. About an hour later, it began to beep and the Warning light was blinking. I unplugged it and went to work. When I got home, I plugged it back in. The Warning light resumed blinking and the unit began to beep again.

Installed Altura 56" fan, worked fine until a few days later when we added the light fixture to it. Worked for about 10 minutes, then fan stopped and we can't get it to turn back on. Light still works. Seems as if something burned out.


Yes you have overloaded the paralleled, relay contacts and they have burnt out, or tripped the protection circuit inside the actual fan electronics. This usually wrecks the electronics, and requires replacement. However replacement parts are ONLY av ... Air Conditioners

I have a goodman cental air that the compresser will not turn on unless you manually push in the contact on the 24 volt thermostat coil. I'm not sure how it's supposed work but i think there should be 24 volts out of one side of the coil to the thermostat and back. I don't have voltage on either side. Does this indicate a bad coil?


You need to check for 24V across the coil.The thermostat is nothing more than a switch which closes the Y terminal to the R terminal and allowing the 24V to be fed from the transformer to the contactor coil and thus turning the syst ... Goodman Air Conditioners

At 30,000 miles my then 8 or 9 month old chevy 2500hd 4wd pickup truck air conditioning started blowing hot air on the driver side (the passenger side was still cold). I turned the truck off and back on and it began blowing normally for a few days and then it would do it again. A year or so later the heat on the driver side went out totally (passenger side worked properly). So now the driver side blows cold air constantly. A few months after that the blower quit working all together. Now at 185,

My Duo-Therm RV roof-top a/c unit continues to come on and off when the system is turned off. No air blows, just the compressor runs for about a minute then shuts off. About 5 minutes later, it comes back on and does the same thing. Again, let me stress, the system is in the OFF mode.

My air conditioner will not turn on. (See below for a more detailed description.) I recently bought a used Kenmore Room Air Conditioner Model 580. 76129. It worked well for about a month (running almost continuously, usually on either energy saver or cool). About a week ago, I walked out of my room when the air conditioner was on, and it was off when I walked back in about an hour later. (The display was unlit, and it was not making noise.) The power button still does not work. The outlet

I have a honeywell PA404A pressure control switch on my home gas steam heating system. I'm having a problem with the switch turning off the system. It will only come back on if I turn the top screw all the way out, then back down to approx 5psi. At this point the heat will turn on but when the thermostat shuts down the system it will not turn back on when calling for heat unless I adjust the screw again. Also, the switch will only turn on the system when set at 5 on the dial on the inside. Any i
