I have a 2011 Wildwood travel trailer. I tried to use the air conditioner for the first time this weekend. When I turned the themostat to cool and 65 degrees the air unit "clicked" one time but the unit did not start. I tried various settings but nothing. When I turned the thermostat off the unit clicked one time again. This is a brand new trailer and the first time I tried the air. Any thoughts?


First thing to check is that the breaker for hydro to AC unit is in the on position. The clicking sounds like 12 VDC is OK but hydro may not be on to it. ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

Recently purchased a second hand Carrier Split A/c -Model 42KPC019303 - 18000 BTU. The unit would work for awhile then shut off - fan included - and the green light would blink 5 times at intervals - but the unit did not start back. The sensor was changed and the unit started functioning normal for awhile - and then the problem resumed. Only difference is that this time the light blinks for about 10 mins and then the unit kicks back on. I want to know if this is a normal function, and if it ca

I have a Comfort-Aire Model RAH-123A Room Air Conditioner and Heat Pump. When depressing the low or high heat control button, the unit hums like it wants to start but shuts off in about 3-5 seconds. My suspicion is that the compressor is trying to start but a thermal cutout shuts it down when it does not start. The unit was installed as part of a sun room addition and the remodeler is no longer in business. If I cannot solve this problem through the internet, I need a local contact fro servic

Compressor problem? My outdoor unit comes on with the fan blowing just fine. Then I hear a buzzing sound for about 2-3 seconds which I believe is the compressor trying to come on. (Incidentally, a couple of lights inside the house seem to dim at the same time that the buzzing sound occurs.) The buzzing sound reoccurs every couple minutes while the outdoor unit fan and the indoor blower both continue to run. I have shut down both the outdoor and indoor units for a couple hours and tried restarti

I have a new caravan fitted with a domestic B3000 plus air conditioning unit. it worked well until we got to Darwin. Since arriving here it starts up by itself for a few minutes at a time and then shuts down again. It does start without a command from the remote control. If we turn the unit on with the remote it works normal but it seems to have life by itself. It is hot and humid here and I do not know if this could be the reason. Can you please help me? Thanking you in advance. Rene.

I turn the thermostat down at night. When I get up in the morning I turn it back up. The heat kicks on for a minute or two then the unit starts blowing colder air. If I turn the thermostat to the OFF position, wait until I hear all blowers stop, then turn it back to the ON position, it will start blowing HOT air again. Some times I have to perform this cycle 3 times to get it to keep blowing hot air. Any ideas as to what is shutting the furnace off? Thanks, Wayne

Wiring compressor Replaced defective fan motor on my a/c unit. Old motor had three wires: black, yellow, brown. New generic motor has black, white, brown, brown w/white stripe. This new motor came with a new two terminal capacitor. Old cap. had three terminals. The black and white wires from motor connect across the line voltage and the other two wires connect across the capacitor. After install and trying to run the unit, found that compressor turns on for about two seconds and shuts down, but


The two terminal cap is only for the new fan motor. Connect the compressor wire back where you found it, on the 3 terminal cap. It's the terminal marked, "herm". The "common" terminal on the 3 terminal cap must still be connected to one side of the ... Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner

Hi guys, I try to solve this problem i have with my AC unit American Standard YCC048F. Short: The heating and cooling are ok, the only problem is the fan doesn't turn off even if heat or cool turns off. Some times even if i put the thermostat is on off the fan starts running. I try to find a relay for the fan but i don't know what can be the problem. Please help, for now i am switching on/off the unit to have it run. Thank you. Costi


If the unit has printed circuit board the relay maybe in it which has probably welded contacts, must change the pcb then or try tapping it, it might help or even, try off and on power at circuit breaker it migt reset the pcb. ... Air Conditioners
