Just had AC tech charge $257 to replace capacitor on carrier 38ckco48300. tech also stated condenser fan motor may have been damaged with replacement cost of $500. can a condenser fan motor for this unit be purchased without going through HVAC type company for cheaper cost? where can I find user manual for this model as it is not on the carrier website. thank you.


I don't know what part of the country you are in, but here in Okla. a condenser motor can be bought by the home owner for around $100. You should be able to go to any appliance supply house and purchase your own motor. Take the model and serial nu ... Air Conditioners

Replaced condenser fan motor with OEM and I replaced the dual run capacitor with exact same rating and the condenser fan motor still will not run, I wired the way it came off (3wires brown to f on capacitor, black to contact, and purple to df1 on the defrost timer board). The contactor appears good it plunges when I give it power and the compressor comes on. Wondering if the defrost timer board is bad.


One way to test the motor and the board is to bypass the board. You need to direct wire the motor and test to see if it comes on. Then you know the motor is good and the board is bad. Not sure exactly what board your talking about though. Condens ... Air Conditioners

Bryant High Efficiency Unit, runs constantly, I suspect the thermostat. Fan control and thermostat were replaced. The installer was to familiar with the installation. Could you please give me an idea of what could be the problem. Thank you for your assistance. The unit is over 20 years old. If replacement is required what would you suggest?


Any unit over 20 years is no longer energy efficient & it is past the lifespan of an AC. Get quotes from 3 different companies & go with best price with best warranty. I'm not partial to any particular manufacturer. They all get their part ... Bryant 462AJC021BA Air Conditioner

My 11 year old Friedrich WallMaster grinds for less than a minute trying to get the compressor to generate cold air. then it gives up. fan works fine. is it worth repairing or should i replace it?

It sounds to me like you have the wrong size capacitor installed if you are talking about the outside condenser fan motor running slower than normal, it might have just enough to kick on, but not enough to keep running, which could cause your system ... Air Conditioners

I have a Ruud model number: uamb 042jaz Apparently the fan motor (the one on top of the unit below the grille) is failing. It has some oil around the bottom edge of the motor. I had someone call out to estimate the repair and was told it would be more than $1,000.00. That seems high for such a simple part/labor. Should I replace it myself? Is it a difficult thing to swap out. I am technically minded, so that part does not bother me. Thanks, D.


Hello David,$1000 does seem quite steep for changing the blower motor. The hardest part likely will be finding a replacement motor. There may be a reason why the high price tag. Look in the phone book, for electric motor repair / servi ... Air Conditioners

No heat The AC works fine; I checked the breaker box. The heat came on a couple of times for 10 min or so in the last week but now it won't come on at all. The fan works in the ON position but no heat. Can you give me some idea of what the problem might be and cost to repair before I have to call someone to look at it. It was manufactured 4/2003. Thank you.


First figure out if your unit is a heat pump, (where the unit outside both heats and cools your home) or it may be a propane or nat gas furnace, it could also be a hydronic heater (the water heater heats the home) let me know what you find out. ... Weather King 10AJA2501AH Air Conditioner

I need to replace my condenser fan motor. I replaced it once before but instead of blowing out the top, it was blowing on the condenser. Should it blow out of the top? If so, what direction should the motor rotate? Does the fan determine which direction it blows?


Yes. It should blow out the top. The rotation of the fan does determine the direction of air. Either have the motor replaced and indicate the direction of rotation. ... Air Conditioners

John. [email protected] I have 2 carrier units both installed in 2006 and still under warranty, they are a 38brc030 and 38brc042 the evaporator coil in both units have to be replaced and the compressor coil in 38brc030. The repair company says the evaporator coils have had alot of problems and Carrier has modified the size of them. The repair company says the parts will be covered by Carrier but the $2690 flat rate cost of labor to replace them is not. One is seems like a high cost for the labor a

I have a Coleman Presidential 7670 furnace in a mobile home. customer said it came on a couple of times by itself. I ran new wire, fan won,t shut off. Replaced fan switch, fan still won't shut off. Replaced t-stat, same problem. This is an older unit and has no board it has a fan switch a low limit switch, i,m guessing the other is a high limit and a fan relay. I have no schematic and am very frustrated can anyone help me please. Thanks. Brian from california


Brian, it sounds as if possibly the fan relay is stuck however, if the fan will not shut off I would suggest the following, Follow the wires from the fan to the relay on the relay disconnect the fan wire there and see if the fan shuts down if so t ... Air Conditioners

Condenser fan replaced one year ago, fan not turning but can hear motor


The answer to your problem is most likely the motor start capacitor. A AC motor can run in both directions. The start capacitor is used to cause the current to lag behined the voltage which determines the direction the motor will turn. Its posible th ... Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner

I have a comfortmaker unit with heat strips. The blower fan comes in and blows cool air. I have checked voltage at the transformer, and it is producing 24 vac. The contactor for the fan and condenser never pull in so I replaced the defrost control circuit board. Still only blows cool air and the defrost cycle never comes on. I jump 24vac to the coil on contactor and the defrost fan came on and the condenser came on so the fan motor and start/run capacitor are good. Any suggestions.

On the 22nd Sept.2010 I received my replacement remote for Model RAS-09CHA1R/RAC-09CHA1 A/C The price with GST & PP was almost $200.This is the only Hitachi A/C I have. My other A/C remote cost about $39 for a different A/C manufacturer. I find this extremely expensive and 1/3 of the cost of the Hitachi A/C.If the replacement costs are going to be this expensive I would be most reluctant to ever purchase another Hitachi product. Would you please explain the reason for this exorbitant price.

I've been having the same problem with my Day & Night Bryant Carrier furnace that is described here http://www.fixya.com/support/t3213886-bryant_carrier_furnace_fan_stays. A repair person says I should replace the whole unit for $1800. He doesn't think we should repair the unit we have for safety reasons, which is fine if that's the right thing to do. Is replacement a typical solution for a situation like this and does the cost seem about right living in San Francisco Bay Area? Regarding the rep

I have a Goodman Air Conditioner Model CK49-1B. The fan in the unit does not turn on when the thermostate is set for cooling; the fan in the furnace works and blows warm air.

The repair person told me that the dog shortout the CONTACTOR and had to be replaced it, he also replaced 12 inches of wires damaged by the dog.. He did the job in less than one hour and charged me $225.00. Did he over charge me? Late
