My indoor unit on my heat pump will not shut off. The electric heat keeps running, and the fan keeps running. It only happens when it is really cold, like 25deg or below, above that and it functions fine. The outdoor unit shuts off, but the indoor stays running. I do HVAC work, but I have never seen a problem like this. I have switched the stat out, and its just so strange. I figured the relay may be stuck, but if I turn the stat off, it turns off shortly after which tells me it may not be the c

I turn on the Central A/C unit with the thermostat. The attic fan unit goes on and the system cools the house. When the system shuts down the fan unit shuts off but the outside compressor keeps running. The only way the outside compressor goes now off is when I flip the 240 switch on the main box. This just started. Is it a thermostat problem? Thanks.
Could be a thermostat problem but even more likely the contactor on the unit outside is stuck. In order to change this part you will have to get in to the outdoor unit. The contactor is the automatic switch that the thermostat energizes when the t ... Air Conditioners

I have a Dometic rooftop Air conditioner in my RV When I turn it to low medium or high the fan run the same speed and when I turn it to AC it will run for about 5 min then the fan will shut off but the compressor keeps running I turn it off for a min or so and everythings comes back on. Turn it to the fan only side and the fan will run for 5 min then shut off a min later it comes back on then back off and on in fan only side.

I have a window air conditioner, Maytag, the compressor keeps running and will not shut off. I have tried turning it off and on, but it still runs. I tried to turn it off by the button on the AC, but the compressor still runs even when everything else shuts off. I had to push the button that is by the plug in to make it shut down completely.
The compressor is controlled by a contactor (relay) the relay is stuck (contacts burned or if a solid state relay the "smoke has leaked out" :) it may require a control board change if it is a modern unit ... Maytag Portable Air Conditioner M6P09S2A

When the thermostat turns off, the condensing unit continues to run. The old contactor was sticking. I could go out and tap on the side of the electrical box beside the compressor, and the contactor would drop out, allowing the unit to shut down. I have replaced the run contactor, but the problem has not gone away. In fact tapping on the electrical box won't even make it shut down now.
You most likely have a short. Start by removing the wire on the terminal marked y in the t- stat then see if it shuts down. Look in the air handler for wires touching together. I have also eound wires touching in the wall from the t-stat. ... Carrier 38CKC042 Air Conditioner

Even if I put the thermistat up passed the current temp, the compressor still keeps running. Where are the contactores / relays? Shal I take the cover off, and start looking around?

Air conditioning unit not running but fan keeps running even though thermostat is turned to off, auto, and temp set to highest position 90degrees. 3 amp fuse keeps blowing on the circuit board in the blower compartment. I replaced it 3 times then installed a new thermostat. no change. I can usually figure it out if I got a little input or direction. Any help would be deeply appreciated. I would much rather have a trained expert easily repair my hvac unit but I can only call the professionals in
If the fuse is blowing then this is generally indicative of a short in the low voltage wiring, isolate the wires on the thermostat and the unit ends, use an ohmmeter to verify that there is no path for continuity with no wires touching, if there is t ... Air Conditioners

The compressor on my goodman unit runs a few hours and shuts off. The condensing fan continues to run and once in a while you will hear a buzz but compressor won't start. If you then turn up stat and wait, unit may start or sometimes you have to wait longer for compressor to run. Readings are fine and unit is clean.
There could be excessive heat developing causing internal overload protectors to open when it has reached that temperature. This could be due to bearing or winding problems with the compressor. Another possibility is the capacitor if it is not operat ... Air Conditioners
