Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Fan Hello, my ac unit blower on the inside is working fine but, the outside fan isn't. i just bought a new relay switch due to that what it was a few years back. but, it's not working the outside fan. so, my question could it be another relay switch? or the compressor? Thanks

Hi wild 36.
\015\012I think the problem may be a bad run capacitor. If the outside unit is humming with no action, that may be it.

\015\012This could also cause the outside unit circuit breaker to trip.

Turned on the a/c for the first time this year and no fan. The compressor turns on but no fan. The fan works when turned to heat and t-stat cranked up. This is a BDP CO. 2085C02135. Is there a relay or limit switch that only works with cool?


Depending on the thermostat you have, there may be an issue there. Some stats have a subbase that controls the fan for AC. I would like to know the model of your stat ... Air Conditioners

The easiest way to see if it is the thermostat is to write down what wire goes where and pull all the wires off. If it still does it, it's not the thermostat. If it stops, you'll need to get a new thermostat. Let me know what you find out. ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

My carrier 38ckc036350 is 6 years old. Today the compressor stopped working. The fan outside comes on and every few min i hear an electrical buzz like the compressor is trying to be energized. Are there any starter cylinoids or capacitors that could be suspect?? Im quite handy with most everything but never have taken apart and A/C unit, how about a schematic or troubleshooting guide?? Thanks


Hi!\012\012It sounds like the capacitor and/or compressor are quitting. Try getting a Start Capacitor of the same uF (I think 35 uF for Commpressor and 5 uF for fan motor) as the one you have, OR get a Start Kit from any AC parts shop f ... Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner

Compressor does not run. On turning the AC on, the compressor does not run. The blower fan does though. Checking the relay panel, the relay for the compressor does not engerize. a temporary solution is to put a switch across the contacts the compressor on and then the thermostate is set so that the AC should work, the fan comes on and the unit works as usual. The only exception is that the temperature must be controlled manually.


Hi, if you are energizing the contacts on the contactor, and the compressor runs, the thermostat is faulty. This is what energizes the contactor coil that you have. You need to check to see if you have voltage to the coil on the contactor. You need t ... Coleman Mach 15 Air Conditioner

I don't know what model my fan is, but it's only 3 years old and suddenly two days ago the light and fan quit working. We replaced the light switch on the wall-nothing. Took apart whatwe could of the fan to look at the wiring-all intact. We then replaced the battery in the remote and it instantly worked fine again. After putting it all back together it stayed lit with the fan working for about two hours at which time I turned it off using the wall switch. I immediately tried turning it back on a

My Goodman air handler RELAY, ELECTRONIC BLOWER TIME DELAY makes a clicking noise 4 or 5 five cycles (about 10+ Sec delay ) before the squirrel cage fan will come/stay on. I have reset the unit by switch it off for 5 minutes then back on and it worked for a week but now it makes the outside compressor go on and off the same number of cycles before it comes on. Do I need a new board or can the capacitor cause this problem? Help it's hot in Phoenix!

Problem I turned on my air conditioner this spring. I turned the switch to cool on and the air conditioner fan not going. I took cover off and got new capacitator didn't work.

Amana PTAC Unit is not producing heat. Fan works fine. can not locate manual reset for heat although a label on the unit says there is one. I have an Amana pth153b35ae ptac unit that the heat will not come on. The compressor will run in the cooling mode but not in heat mode.

I have a ducted sanyo split system. The model number is SPW-C361GH5TU. The unit in the ceiling stopped working about 4 weeks ago. The outside compressor would start up but stop after a short period of time. I managed to get a technician to work on the unit. He said it was the PC board.
