Outside unit will not start,fan will spin if you kick start so it seems to be a cap. at fault? the start up caps. seems to be part of pcb,can these be changed or is it a new board?
fan for outside unit when spinning is very slow,runs 20 mins then c6 again..
can i check voltage to compressor,or windings resistance.
any help on this would be great,thanks phil.
Try turning the power off at the fuse box, waiting 5 minutes turning the system back on and spray some water on the vents on the side of the outside condenser. If the fan isnt spining get a twig and spin it in an anti-clockwise direction after 1 or 2 spins it should start spinning on its own. continue to hose the vents with water for another 5 minutes. Its important to have the fan spinning as it extracts the heat from the condenser box.

The first thing i'll say is you will need to get it repaired by a technician and i strongly recommend you not to do it by urself.
Remote control units have diagnostic program in the control, after 3 to 5 minutes of operating if the diagnostic tools detect abnormal operation, then its shutdown the unit to protect from damage. Thermistor sensor is one of the parts that detect the operation of the unit. Out of range or defective thermistor can shut the operation of the unit. -If your indoor and outdoor is clean start the
unit in cool mode and monitor the outdoor pipes. If your suction pipe is icing
or dry then your unit is under charge, but if your suction is cold and sweating
then the system is ok and sure that the thermistor sensor is defective. -Out of range thermistor sensor in both return
air and freeze up sensor can cause the tripping “off “ the unit.
If the air conditioner compressor runs all the time the main control board might be defective. The main control board provides the voltage to the fan motor and compressor. These boards are often misdiagnosed. Check all other components to be certain this is the cause of the problem.
This could be an inoperative condenser fan.System will kick off on high pressure without proper air flow.The hum indicates voltage is present. Providing the fan motor is not locked up and will spin,Check your run capacitor which helps boost the motor voltage initially and will get it turning.If the cap is good,you may be faced with motor replacement....good luck
I may not be of much help but I may be able to guide you into some diagnosos. If there is a communication problem between the inside and outside unit, both on the inside and outside units a colored LED will bling 5 times then pause for 3 seconds. The 33 and 44 codes are confusing to me because I have never seen this. Try resetting the outside unit with no call for heat or cool from the inside unit. After about 20 seconds, restore power to the outside unit. Go in and turn on the remote and make sure you lower the cool setting more than degrees cooler than the room temp. After 3 minutes the outside unit should turn on. If you get an error code of either 1, 2 or 5 blinks document it for the technician. If you continue to get your 33 and 44, you have a bad control board.
If all else fails, press and hold the button located on the lower left side of the art unit and hold for about 5 seconds. If it still no longer works, now you will need the help of someone who knows these units.
