Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Clicking from Condenser

\015 We own three 3-zone condenser units. Unit 1 stopped working three weeks ago and the condenser was clicking. Repair man came out and said it was a circuit board--week later he replaced the board and that wasn't it. Then he wanted to change ALL the circuit boards--we called in a Diamond dealer. The night before the Diamond dealer(DD) came, Unit 2 stopped with the same exact problem (this is about a 2 weeks after unit 1 stopped working. \015\012\015\012DD fixed both units by adding freon. That worked, until Unit 2 stopped again at 11 pm that same night with the same clicking condenser. DD came out two days later and emptied the entire freon out of Unit 2 and replaced it with new freon--A LOT of money. Worked again until 11pm and than stopped with the clicking.\015\012\015\012Then this afternoon Unit 1 went out AGAIN with the clicking sound from condenser. $675 in "repair" bills later we still have two of our condensers broken and we are hot here in Florida. PLEASE HELP :-(\015

Answers :

I would have to say it's your fan going out, also if the units aren't fixed the the DD should come out and fix it for free since it wasn't done the first time. I would take a look at it but I don't know where in florida you are. I'm in highlands county. If your close enough I could come take a look. If there's clicking coming from your condenser then it's one of two things, the compressor or the fan. hopefully the fan. let me know.

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

Ruud Achiever 90 Plus - furnace won't ignite. Getting open pressure switch error code (2 blinks). I can see into the outside end of the exhaust pipe and it looks clear. There is condensation but I don't believe any puddling in the pipe and I have checked the drainage at the furnace. Is there an easy way to determine if the pressure switch might be bad? I have blown into the rubber tube and the switch is clicking. Anything else to check? Thanks!


Jump out the switch as it first starts then take the jumper off as it ignites. If it starts, its the switch. If not, its the circuit board. ... Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner

The fan is working but neither heat nor AC is working. We can hear the condenser try to click on for a second or two every minute or so but does not start. Is there something we can check or clean before calling? What does it sound like the problem is? Is it expensive? Thank you. Rog


Sounds like you have a popped capacitor due to dirty condenser coil. A Dual capacitor through a company is going to run you at least $250 and the condenser coil needs to be chemically cleaned. If you get it yourself I think depending on the size arou ... Samsung Air Conditioners

I have a carrier 38YCBO48300 Over the years ithas a history of eating the start Caps Which I replace myself. This time the cap was leaking so I replaced it but the unit still will not run.The blower runs but not the outside unit. there is power and I hear a click when the system is turned on if I push in the relay the unit will start. but stop when I release it. I have checked the float switch in the condenser pan Any other ideas??


You must have a bad connection from either the thermostat or inside unit. Check the wire going from the outside unit to the inside unit. Look for any in-line fuses or the fuse on the circuit board. ... Carrier 38BRC048 Air Conditioner

I have a intertherm model 9007590 AC unit. The condensing unit was changed to a unit that has a common wire and a y terminal and the old condenser unit had three wires at condensing unit. I can't get it to run and I think some of the wiring has been changed. I need to know how the low voltage wiring is suppose to be and if I need a four wire or five wire stat due to the condenser being changed. What stat do you recommend for this unit. Thank you.

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 ... Ruud UAKA030 Air Conditioner

One of the goodman condensing unit for my house starts good every thing works fine, but it runs OK for couple of hours and by then the refrigerant line connecting the unit condenses and it will not blow cool air. I have to turn it off, may be for couple of hours and start again and it works Ok till the copper line gets condensed and problem repeats.


The refrigerant line is actually supposed to condensate, but if you mean "freeze up", thats a problem. The condensation occurs because the line temp is lower than the outside temp, kinda like a soda can outside. From what you described, Im pretty sur ... Goodman CKL60AR60 Air Conditioner
