Question about Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

AC Problem My AC won't cool the house. I hear it on outside, the breakers have been checked, furnace is on, disconnect has been flipped on and off, filter is good. Thermastat is on, cool set at 65, but there is no air coming out of the vents or coming out from where the filter is either.

How do I turn on the circuit breaker on my goodman ac? The smarter Tec flipped the circuit breaker. Do I turn it or push it?


If it is the breaker box in your house, then just push it to the side so it is lined up with the other breakers in the box. Actually any breaker will be like that. If it is the disconnect outside then it pulls out and you flip it over and put it back in.

I had my a/c charged today because it has not been cooling the house down. It took less than a pound, but it still blows worm air. Fan and compressor all running. I cleaned outside unit, filters, replaced...


It could be that it is not charged correctly. Check the insulated copper
line outside if it is sweating and the condensor is discharging hot air, then the ac is doing all that it can. Check the evaporator inside to see
if the drain has condensate coming out of it.

Getting the heat out of the attic is a good idea, but you must have enough make-up air in the attic for the fan. If you do not have enough
make up air, it will start to draw air from inside the house. One way to check this is if you have a gas water heater and or furnace. If you put
a flame by the exhaust pipe in the basement and it blows it out, then you now have a backdraft problem.

Run the AC withoutthe fan, my real guess is the unit is not properly
charged or you do not have a big enough AC unit.

Blower never stops. AC outside jammed to stay on???


You need to call someone who truely knows what they're doing. From your decription, the person you had out should not be working on units. You have a problem most likely caused be the person that installed the new motor and these units are not designed to be worked on by the homeowner. There are hazards that could cause damage or injury.

Blower in attic & AC unit outside continuously run


Sorry to hear about your miss-fortune, you are right it is an wiring problem. Can you turn off the blower with the thermostat (cool-off-heat) or what happens when you switch the fan to (auto or on) When you say the outside unit is "rigged" is it mechanically being jammed or electrically? If its mechanically that should be removed (what a crappy thing to do) other wise it will run continuously as you may already know. That is what it sounds like, you should just be able to shut the entire system down by turning off the switch to the furnace. If it is electrically being held closed, he changed some of the wiring around in the attic unit, you better hope he was lazy and jammed a stick in the contactor in the outside unit or else you may need to learn more about HVAC wiring, none the less I would double check the thermostat wires going to the attic furnace there should be nomenclature on the unit or at least somewhat marked. This was probably disturbed when the new blower was installed, by the way that was your initial problem. Good luck and becarful

AC Fan doesn't blow cold air, frozen coil noticed outside, resetting power resolves temporarily


You need to call a reputable service technician.  The freezing up usually is associated with a low refrigerant charge or low air flow.  Check your return air filter and replace as needed.

AIR CONDITIONER NOT COOLING


Ok, there should also be a service disconnect near the condensing unit usually a 6'x8-10" or so grey box, you need to check this and make insure that your 220v line voltage is getting thru. Sometimes this disconnect is a breaker sometimes fuses and sometimes just a bar type plug ( if the disconnect is tripped the problem is likely a clogged condenser coil, proper cleaning will be needed to prevent it from tripping again) If this is not tripped and you are getting 220v to your condenser then you need to confirm that you are getting the 24v control voltage to the compressor relay from the transformer in the indoor section. If the indoor fan can be controlled at the thermostat it proves that your transformer is good and you have 24v available, you should be able to hear and see (if your looking at it) the compressor relay engage when the thermostat is set to call for cool and the compressor delay on circuit has expired (usually 5 min). If the relay is not engaging then look for a wiring problem between the condenser and the furnace. Do you have dogs that run near the condenser? I often find Improperly secured t-stat wires getting pulled loose or chewed up by the family pet. You should have found the explanation for the fault at this point GL!

Turn breaker on to furnace and the exhuast fon comes and ac will not come on


There should be two separate breakers for the cooling system. The furnace breaker you turned on. Now there should be a double breaker in the power panel labeled A/C or Air Conditioner. In addition there should be a disconnect at or near the outside unit. Make sure it is in the on position also. Set the thermostat to cool and the outside unit should start and run.

I have a colman ac unit and the outside unit will not come on. i hear it clicking but nothing happens


On my computer screen these two problems are not the same.

To "garys2003" Clicking you hear is the contactor closing in calling for cooling. If no power is being supplied to the outside unit high voltage the unit will not run. Check your circuit breaker or fuses in the outside power box. If the outside power box is of the non-fused disconnect, check that the disconnect is inserted properly.

To Trenina: Is your unit a self contained unit outside ducted to the inside as with a Mobile Home. If so your evaporator cooling coil may be frozen over stopping air movement, turn the cooling off and set your fan to on until it defrosts, then return to normal operation and leave the fan on during cooling.

If nothing comes on inside as with a central A/C system you may have a problem with the blower motor itself.
