Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Carrier 38CK036330 Hi,  I totally know nothing about air conditioning. It's getting so hot in LA and we really need help since our house has a 18-month old child. We have a Carrier 38CK036330 central unit, and it's not cooling the house as we'd like it to. It's already about 13 years old and we are looking for a new one to replace it. The question is we cannot find this model anymore, or do we have to replace it with the same model?? What model or brand would you suggest for a 1350 square feet h


Answers :

The model numbers change.You have a 3 ton system.The make and model that you replace it with is not nearly as important as a quality install.Do your homework on picking a contractor that you can trust.Have them do a load calculation to make sure a 3ton system is right for your house.13 seer is the minimum you can get.You need to weigh the projected annual savings of higher seer units against the added cost of having them installed.Again,get a contractor you trust and go with the best warranty.None were stupid questions.

I have a Carrier whole house Air Conditioner I want to replace. It is model 38EN048320. @ things: 1. What "ton" is that AC rated at? It's so old I can't find what size it is so hard to pick a replacement. 2. With todays models they are all high efficency, should I get the same size replacement or can you step down a notch based on the efficency in models made today? I know a contractor would figure this all out but I'm doing this job myself as I have done this before.


1. 3 Ton Up To 4 Ton 2. You should get the same size - high efficiency means that for the same heat extracted from the residence the unit consumes less electricity than an older one. How much less is explained in the ratings: if your prese ... Air Conditioners

I have a Carrier model # 58MXA080-F-15112. I think my furnace is 30 plus years old. it isn't heating properly. The blower turns on and sometimes the flames come on, but sometimes they don't. As a result, the temperature just keeps dropping and dropping in the house. A furnace repair technician has been out twice. The furnace was displaying code 13. He replaced the limit switch and a another switch, but I'm having the same problem, but with no current code on the furnace. Any ideas?


A 13 code means the furnace cycled on limit more than three times consecutively and is in a lockout for 3 hours. A 14 is ignition lockout. An ignitor does not intermittently quit working. I'm the service mgr at our shop, and I know that particular fu ... Air Conditioners

I have a 10-year old Carrier Gas pack Model #48GS024060301. Turned on the heat for the first time this season and the unit did not turn on. I was able to turn on the house circulation fan and since it was a warm day today I also tested the A/C side and it worked fine. The inductor motor and fan were replaced last year. All the fins on the fan blade basically flew off on the first start up attempt last year. The entire unit, heating and A/C, were serviced within the last year by a certified p

I currently havea honeywell thermostat model# T8112D1005 (1) 0347 PF2A and a replacing it with a Honeywell TX1500E. My only issue is my old thermostat has a "R" wire that was connected up to it and my new unit only shows two options "RH" and "RC" it does not have an output of only "R".

I've had to replace the blower motor on an old GE electric furnace three times in the past year. The first time the motor just stopped working. So I replaced it with an A.O. Smith motor for the summer. It worked just fine during the summer. Winter comes along, switch the thermostat to heat and the house fills up with light smoke with a smell of burning plastic. I replace it again with the same brand and model # along with a new capacitor. It ran fine for about an hour or two, then it began to bl

Hi All, I have a carrier reverse cycle airconditioning unit and about a week ago the digital thermostat blanked out. I spoke to an aircon repair tech and he suggested that the fuse is blown at the air handler and suggested that I can probably replace the fuse myself. My question is where is this fuse located in the carrier units, do I have to open panels or is it in a box like a fuse box in a car. I have no issues checking the fuse if I know where to find it LOL, The model of the unit is


It will be inside the unit main panel. Turn main power off and remove the main front panel. The fuse will be located on or near the fan control board. Typically they are a flat agc type fuse. 3-5 amps. The problem will be that if the fuse is blown ... Air Conditioners

In Dec 07 I had a complete Carrier AC/Gas Heating System installed in my home to replace my original system when my house was built in 1983.We upgraded the new system to 3-TON AC as the old AC was 2 and half ton. Since the new system was installed in the winter time it was not until the hot weather started in May that a problem arose. The first conclusion of the problem was that the coil was aligne incorrect the second was that we needed more air return so an addition vent was added. No


Air conditioning requires 400 cfm (cubic feet per minute) per ton of cooling so your old 2.5 ton system would have required 1000 cfm and your new 3 ton requires 1200 cfm. This is not a big change, but if your ductwork is too small it could cause pro ... Carrier Air Conditioners
