You either have something wired wrong or you have a direct short in the system. Are you starting the A/C or the furnace? If it's the A/C, it could be a shorted compressor, capacitor, fan motor or it's wired wrong.

Rudd air conditioner outside fan won't start


I just had the same problem. I replaced the motor with no luck. It turned out to be a bad capacitor. If it is a dual capacitor, three prongs on top, it also starts the compressor. It is recommended to replace the capacitor anytime you replace a motor. I would try replacing the capacitor first. It is a lot cheaper that a new motor. If that does not fix the problem then you can get a motor. No harm, no foul. The slow start of the motor is a common symptom of a bad capacitor. The motor is not getting enough voltage. The capacitor increases the voltage like a transformer. It will boost it to almost 400 volts, depending on your unit.

Sounds like the contactor in the condensing unit is stuck. That is why it will not turn off when the thermostat is satisfied. If the inside air handler is not blowing and the outside condensing unit is running, then this will cause the inside coils to freeze up rather quickly.
The contactor is located in the outside condensing uni in the electrical compartment.
If it is sticking it will need to be replaced.

Where is the fan swith located in a york heating-airconditioning unit


There isn't a fan switch persea, when the thermostat send a signal for the unit to start working it sets the contactor - relay to turn on the fan and the compressor. So if your fan is not turning, first make sure that the fan motor isn't locked up by moving it with something thin and long. I use a piece of electrical wire and usually that is strong enough to check, but BE CAREFUL! Sometimes, the fan will start working with a little nuge and the wire will wrap itself around the shaft - and then you have to disassemble the shell to get it off.

If it isn't bound up then it is probably a bad contact-relay or capacitor - I always recommend you replace them together because the seem to fail about the same time. This is the cheapest place I have found to purchase them - http://www.hvacpartsoutlet.com/York-Contactors.aspx

My air conditioner won't stop running. The fan won't stop on the upstairs unit unless we remove the thermostat from the wall. The condenser runs constantly. It does cool when the thermostat is plugged...


Does the compressor also run constantly? If it does, the problem with the outside unit may be a stuck contactor. You can remove the cover where the power goes into the outside unit and the contactor should be located near there. If it is stuck, turn off the power to the outside unit and tap the contactor to try to free it, depending on how bad the contacts look, or replace the contactor. As for the indoor fan, you could have a bad fan relay, if that is what your unit has, or a bad fan sequencer, which is what some units use. These components will be located in the air handler. Hope this helps. Let me know what you find if this doesn't help and I can offer more advice based on that.

Fan motor will not run.


Make sure the fan turns freely by hand. It is possible it is overheating and turning off.

Rheem Heat Pump outside fan seems to be running 24 hours per day. Outside temp 23 degrees. Is this normal? Model #RPKA-018JAZ


no this is not normal. the fan should stop running when the thermostat is satisfied or when the heat pump goes into defrost mode. if it is running nonstop, there is a contactor that operates the fan and compressor that if it sticks will get line voltage to it. you would have to take the cover off of the outside unit and turn the thermostat to off. If the fan continues to run, you need a new contactor.

I have pretty much the same problem


THE INSIDE FAN WILL RUN IF YOU HOLD THE CONNECTOR IN, TRY THE SAME THING OUT SIDE FIND THE CONTACTOR FOR THE OUTSIDE UNIT AND PUSH IT IN WITH SOME THING INSULATED SEE IF THE COMPRESSOR STARTS AND THE OUTSIDE FAN COMES ON IF THIS WORKS YOU WILL NEED TO TROUBLE SHOOT THE UNIT

Unit will not come on at all has voltage to unit and to contactor?


Sounds like you lost the refrigerant charge. Low pressure switch will not let compressor run. Look for oil around the condenser tubes. If you find it, this is probably the leak source.
