Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

What's wrong with it?

\015 OK.....my ac has quit cooling--my husband changed out some sort of switch with "points" on it --at first the fan outside was not running and after he changed the switch out it proceeded to work correctly. The switch looked as if it had burned a little bit--part of it crumbled apart. Two days later it has quit again --it is blowing warmish air out and the fan outside in the unit is working but it is blowing cool air instead of warm. Is there any way my husband can fix this himself and can how he fix it and what is wrong with it???\015

Answers :

There are lots of things that could be wrong since he just changed the contactor a wire may have burned...Very common..Make sure all wires feel snug onto terminals. The compressor run capacitor may also be bad it looks like a batter with 2 or 3 terminals if it looks bulged on the top where the wires are than its bad ...if it looks flat you would have to have a meter that checks capacitors to test it. Those are all the easy items to correct..Call for service if all cks ok \015\012\015\012Please rate my solutuion as solved if you appreciate my expert advise>>>>>>>
