My Carrier gas furnace (ser. 1903A41848) located in the attic, is five years old and suddenly won't light. IT cycles the fan when I cycle the power to the unit and seemingly attempts to ignite through 3 auto-attempts, (I can smell the gas), yet no continuous operation with heat occurs afterwards. Two lights exist on the exhaust vent both begin green yet one turns red after the ignition attempt. Please let me know your thoughts. -Doug

Check the capacitor for the compressor. It may be getting weak. You will have to remove the cover on top to find it. It will be an oval or round shaped cylinder. If it looks swollen it is bad. You can test it with a multimeter with the capacitor chec ... Dometic Air Conditioners

Sometimes when the humidifier attempts to start it just howls for a minute or two and then quiets down and runs normal -- OR If I hit it with my hand it also quits howling and begins running normally. It doesn't do this every time it starts - only occasionally. I though it might be the motor temporarily getting out of alignment, but then what do I know. I just don't want to buy a new motor for nothing. .
Yes, you got it spot on - the bushings on the motor have worn out and the fan is slightly out of balance. When it rotates at high speed it autocenters, this is why you hear this only during startup.Before replacing the motor take it apart, you ... Air Conditioners
I have to replace the start/run capacitor (97F9971 - Duel Capacitor/ 50, 7.5 370 VAC). I have marked the terminals before removing and purchased the new capacitor. The new capacitor has minor difference with the old one. The hermatic has 3 terminals, The Fan has two terminals The Compressor (C) has 4 terminals. Now in the old unit, two wires were connected to two opposite terminals on C, one in Herm and one in Fan. My question is: How will I know which terminal to connect in the new one
All the terminals are connected together so it won't matter which terminal you use, just as long as you have the Herm, Com, and Fan wires correct. Hope this helps! ... Air Conditioners
A) I am trying to obtain a manual for a model #HWR12XC6-RB air conditioner. Can you send me one via email? B) Although it seem to run, the compressor only seems to run for a minute or two before shutting down for a time. Then it restarts. The temperature display seems to decrease while the compressor is running, and rises again when it is not running. The temperature never seems to aproach the set temperature. C) There are two types of noise I wasn't expecting. One seems to be a kind of klunking

I Have a outside A/C unit I have replaced the fan and I need to know which Capacitor leads go to the Fan, the compressor and the contactor. the capacitor is a 35/5 with one lead with 4 male blade connectors-one with two and one with only one lead. There are also two brown(one with a stripe)wires from the new motor instead of the one on the original motor.
The 2 brown wires go to the capacitor, the solid on the positive or colored dot side, the striped one goes on the other side. ... Dayton Air Conditioners
I have a Goodman Co. air handler model #AWb24-OBC REV E. I had to replace the fan motor and want to make sure it is wired correctly. There are five wires one red, one black, one purple and two brown. I know the two brown go to the capacitor and the purple to the 30 amp breaker. Does the red or the black go to the BTDR?

I have two compressors-one for the upstairs and one for the down stairs. Both compressors are working but the air flow for the upstairs basically does not come out. You can hear the unit running but no air upstairs. Down stairs the air is working. Is there any way to turn the airflow up or adjust it to send more air upstairs. I had the capacitor replaced in the down stairs compressor a few weeks ago and for the upstairs about 1 1/2 years ago. when the air downstairs started working a few d

AC Out. Two year old house. Goodman A/C, two units one for upstairs. Cleaned coils of both outside unit, replaced filters, re-set breakers. Upstairs is cooling. Downstairs unit is running outside, not circulating air inside (inside temp 87). Vents inside are cool to touch, no air. Outside unit fan is pulling, but air exhaust is cool. Compressor ? Should air be circulating even if compressor not functioning. Is there anything in attic exchange that would affect downstairs circulation. Thanks.
Assuming that the 2 systems are isolated, that there isn't any cross over between the systems...It is normal for an air conditioner system, from window unit to central, to be able to circulate the air, even if not cooling. This is known ... Air Conditioners
Hi, I have a 1.5 ton Coleman Central AC for almost 9 years now. The AC stopped cooling one day. The fan is still working, and I can still hear the compressor "compressing" but no cool air. Does that mean that it is not a compressor failure? A technician tried to put refrigerant into it, but it won't absorb. He still wasn't able to fix it. I just wanted to know if I should spend more money to get more technicians to try to fix this, or if this is a classic compressor failure problem, then

We have a Goodman CKL49-1 - 10 Seer - 4 Ton Condenser. One of the wires that fires the compressor keeps burning and, of course, the compressor won't come on. It is beginning to happen every couple of days. Should we bite the bullet and go ahead and replace the compressor or could something else be causing this problem?
A bad connection in the power wiring, the circuit breaker, disconnect, capacitor(s) or in the compressor contactor (worn contactor) can cause this due to very high resistance and subsequent heat production. If the unit will run, it should be amped c ... Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner

My Gibson 3.5 ton heat pump died (might be compressor); however, the air handler is just fine.

I have a Panasonic 11,500 BTU Window A/C for my bedroom. It does not condense any water on humid days and the thermostat keeps cycling on/off. The model is CW-XC120VK. My living room model compressor is on constantly trying to make up for the larger model and I can see the water dripping out the back. The compressor on the big one does come on, but just then shuts off and my bedroom temperature rises above the set 23C. This is a two year old model. Help!

I have 2 kenmore air conditioners, each has a power cord whose plug has a built-in ground fault/reset device. I wanted to shorten the cords, so I cut off the plugs and installed regular heavy-duty three-prong plugs. They are wired in correct polarity. However, on one a/c the compressor will not turn on. On the other, it's working but there is excessive fan noise. Did i do something wrong?

Hi,I am really hoping to find someone to help me if possible. I have a one year old carrier infinity 4ton 17seer condenser and a 5ton variable speed air handler. I has worked fine but now i am getting a SYSTEM MALFUNCTION on the thermistat. When this message appears the air handler continues to blow and only the fan on the condenser continues to run but NOT the compressor so it is not cooling. At times it begins cooling again but then later stops cooling and shows the same malfunstion message. I

My AC wouldn't come on 2 months ago. I called a company to look at it. They said that the capacitor had gone out. When they went to replace it, they didn?t have the right size so they used two capacitors instead of one. A month later my compressor went out completely ? burned wires and everything. My question is could the previous fix have caused this latest problem?
Previous fix would not have caused the compressor failure. Most likely the compressor on its way to failing actually caused the original capacitor to fail. The 2 capacitors together is the usual fix when a dual capacitor is not in hands reach. ... Air Conditioners
