Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

I just bought a house and don't know how to use the honeywell AC,it's a central AC,has a manual control,when I turned on , I don't feel any cold air,I notice the fan inside the house is working, but the device outside the house is not. The thing is I don't Know if I'm seeting up correctly or not or the AC is broken


Answers :

Do you have the system on A/C and it's calling for it to come on? If so, go to your breaker box and see if the unit is getting power. Also, you will need to check if the unit is being told to come on by the tstat. If you don't know how to check voltages then leave it to a professional but you first check should at least be the breaker. There is also another devise on the wall outside near the unit called a disconnect and it might have a breaker in it as well. Not all disconnects are the breaker type and not all units have them. Hope this helps.

Model UAKA 030JAZ was working fine. Now, the compressor fan does not come on and neither does the compressor. I don't know how the contactor works but it is not engaging (the spring loaded contacts are not closing) and there is 120 volts on each side. Blower inside house comes on.

My unit is 4 years old. I always turn it off when I leave for work in the am and turn it back on when I get home in the pm. Last night I turned it on at 7:30pm. When I went to the front of the house about 45 minutes later, I noticed the unit outside was trying to turn on but would immediately turn off. I checked the breakers in the garage, turned them off and back on but still had the same problem. The fan inside the house is running but unit outside will not kick on. I looked for a magic

B & D company air conditioner(model# 566DJ024-C) makes buzzing noise. I just bought a house and when I turned on the air...the unit outside makes a buzzing noise. The fans seems to work and cooler air is coming out of the vents(only ran it for a few min,didn't want further damage). I had the home inspected and the inspector said that the inside breaker is 30amps and the actual max for this particular unit is 25 amps. I don't know if that is the problem or something else...just thought I'd mentio


The circuit breakers Ampere rating has nothing to do with the buzzing noise. If you use a lesser Ampere Circuit Breaker it will trip every time the Air Con: starts, and if you use a very high Ampere Circuit Breaker it won't trip and give you the need ... Air Conditioners

About two years ago, I purchased a: Hunter 56 In. Brushed Nickel Ergonomic™ Remote Control Ceiling Fan Model 21871 A few months ago, a bolt of lightning struck through my house and my fan stopped working ever since then. The remote works fine since I can see the senson light up. And I know the electrical wiring is fine too because it was tested. However, I don't believe my fan is under warranty and I sm trying to find someone who could look at it and let me know if it's worth the mone

Contactor not engaging to start condenser unit . When setting the thermnostat, i hear the click from the unit starting inside the house. Fans start and air starts blowing inside the house, but the condenser unit never starts. I tryed pushing the contactor by hand and then everything works find (cool house) as long as i keep the contactor pushed manually. Seems alike the 24 V (coil) bobine in the contactor is not been energize. When I tried the 24 V outside with a 24 V surce it worked fine. Thank


I would replace the contactor if you are getting 24 volts to the contactor and it isn't engaging therefore the magneto on the contactor is out and the contactor will need replacement. If you don't have 24 volts at the contactor then the transformer ... Air Conditioners

We have recently purchased an older home, built in 1931. There is a whole house fan in the attic that we would like to get working again. We do not know when the fan was installed or who made it - however, it is a very large whole house fan - 42" blades with 46" frame. Our home is only 1200 sq ft and from what we have found on the internet - a 42" fan is made for 3000 sq ft homes. The motor was made by Leeland Motors - 1/2 HP - 1725 RPM. However, we cannot find anything about this company or how

Hi, just replaced the capacitor thinking that would solve the problem but it appears it did not. The motor outside would kick on the unit inside would kick on but the blower motor inside works sometimes and wont other times. Basically, the unit will work just fine all day then we notice the house is getting warm, check the inside unit and everything is running fine but the blower motor is not circulating the air.

AC, Fan-Auto, Fan-On... nothing works. the request from the Thermostat doesn't engage anything. Thermostat Dispay works. How do I know if it is getting the 24volts from the relay? I presume the display wouldn't work if the 24v from relay wasn't there. I have two separate systems in the house. So therefore, I pulled the thermostat off the base and tried it on the faulty system. No luck. Still same issue. Perhaps it's the Honeywell base itself? what electronics are in there that could fail? How ca

Hello, We bought a Perry Home in Georgetown TX last March and it is still under its two year warranty. Our air conditioner stopped cooling today. It has been working well for over 1 year. We came home from work and the temperature is 86F inside and climbing. My wife left the house at noon and the temp was 76F (where we keep the thermostat in the summer). The Air conditioner outside unit's fan is operating and no noise. The inside blower is running normal - no problem. The model number on the o

I have an XB10 Trane AC unit that was installed when my house was built in 2003. After running it for a while, the compressor either seems to shut down and I notice no cold air as though its just the fan. Sometimes when I start it back up my thermostat says ''wait''. Or it just blows the fan, even though its set for cold. I've had the capacitor replaced, a start up capacitor bridged to it. I've changed the filter and had the coils cleaned with a brush and garden house from the inside. I'v

I bought a used furnace and when i hooked it all up the green light that says working is flashing instead of staying on constantly. dont know if that is good or bad. but the automatic pilot will not light and i am not getting the fan to turn on or anything. the draft induce motor is warm to the touch after a few minutes so i know that it is trying to work. not sure if that is the correct name of the motor exactly.

My fan and heater work fine, but today I turned on my air conditioner for the first time this year.

I noticed some straining noise coming from my a/c unit today. The fan on top of the condenser runs fine but as soon as the compressor tries to kick on the fan stops for a split second and you get a kind of surging noise from the condenser unit. Then the fans kicks back on, the the process repeats itself every couple of minutes. Meanwhile no cold air is being produced inside the house. Any ideas?
