Answers :

You will need an OHM meter to check the relay and compressor. Make sure all power is off. The most common types of compressor winding failures are open, grounded, or shorted. You have to know how to read a meter. If you don't find someone who can. Or call an HVAC tech, a small businessperson and ask if you can pay him/her to "confirm" a problem. Tell him or her to check your start components. This approach gives you an insiders edge and also shows that you know or are learning something about your product....
The clicking you hear is the compressor relay trying to start the copressor.. you have a bad relay or a lock up compressor. if you can jump the relay or replace it then you will know which one is bad... hope this helped.

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

Hello i have Carrier Weathermaker 38tkb air conditioner unit. It's about 6 years old and when i got home today, the unit itself wasn't working. Although the blower fan in the furnace inside was blowing, the fan on the a/c unit outside was not moving. I can hear a humming sound coming from it and once in a while, you hear it trying to kick in (the lights in the house even dim a bit, which is unusual), but it never kicks in. The top center of the unit is extremely hot to the touch. I've checked


The humming noise and dimming of the lights is an indication something in the outdoor unit is locked up or has failed.Check the capacitor as it may have gone bad. If the capacitor is good, then you either have a failed motor, a failed co ... Air Conditioners

My A/C outside will not run, inside a fan is blowing air (a little cooler than the 82 degrees it is in here, but not cold). Unlike all the other posts I've read, my unit outside is not making any noise. I makes a click when I turn it on at the termostat 1 time and then nothing. All this started yesterday sometime, after the remains of TS Fay left us. Help. I tried the breaker thing and resetting the 240v box thing outside at the unit. Help.

Air Conditioner was working fine last summer but outside fna not working. Not hearing any sound at all. I can move the fan amanually and it seems fine.

The air conditioner furnce kicks on and blows air out of the registers. It's just the main unit outside that's not working.

Turned on AC was running fine. 30 minutes later began to hear a strange noise. Opened AC/Furnance closet & heard a sound best described as air letting out of a tire. It seemed to be coming from copper pipe. Minute later sound stopped & air was suddenly hot. As if AC was turned on fan not cold. Went outside & neither fan nor motor was running. Turned fan manually. Ran for about a minute then stopped. Outside unit was making what could best be described as a buzzing sound.
