1985 carrier unit stopped. all fans spin freely.

Volt meter showed capacitor was bad so I replaced it. Power to unit is on. I was told by a friend to push the reset button. Can*t find it. carrier model number 40aq024330cd. thank you

Trace wiring out from fan motor back to relay or contactor. On the relay or contactor check with a volt meter and see if you have power to the fan motor. If you don't, you need to check the coil on the relay or contactor and see if you have power on the coil.(24V,120V,230V whatever is marked on the name plate). If there is then replace relay or contactor. if there isn't the control circuit is probably open and it is likely the high pressure control. You will need to locate this and reset it, if it is a manual reset, or it is possible there is another problem

My AC is running inside but the outside unit is not.


could be seized fan motor, failed capacitor, faulty contactor, bad wiring. Turn the breaker off to the unit and try to spin the fan with a long screw driver or something similar but be careful not the bend the fan blade, If the fan will not move don't force it you need a new motor,If the fan spins freely move on open the cover and check the wiring but becareful the capacitor can still have a full charge and shock you even with power off. Other the that you will need a volt meter that can check volts, amps, and capacitors to futher test the unit I suggest calling a local HVAC contractor and having the unit repair and tuned up by have a tune up done you can recoup the cost of the repair with the energy savings from the tune up.

My fan inside run only 5second the ciruits board been change out speed taps move to another tap it run through a cycle then when it come back it only run 5 second i need help ?


Shut the power off to the unit, spin the blower wheel to see if it spins freely. If it doesn't spin freely, (there appears to be a little drag when you spin it),the bearings are bad, if it does spin freely, then try moving the motor shaft from side to side if there’s any play in the shaft side to side then the bearings are worn and motor needs replaced. Then, check the capacitor, if it’s bulging even slightly, the capacitor is bad and needs replaced. Most of the time people replace the capacitor if motor seems ok. If capacitor is ok, turn power on to see if the motor is getting the proper voltage, if it is and not trying to run, then the windings are probably open, the motor's bad and needs replaced.

Unit only used one year (for 3 months) and stored in basement 2 years. When plugged in it sounds like the cooling part wants to work but the fan will not come on.

Does not cool ?


there are 3 possiblities
  1. something obstructing the lower fan motor (or exhaust motor)
  2. bad fan capacitor
  3. or bad motor
to check any of these you will need to disassemble the unit to get to the blower. there are several screws located at various points on the plastic housing covering the unit. Once removed you should be able to check for motor obstructions visually. for checking the motor and capacitor you will need a volt/ohm meter and ideally a capacitor checker. you could try to spin start the motor while it is powered up this could be a possible sign of a bad capacitor if it will start when you do this or if the motor will spin freely while powered down and will not spin start when powered up. I know that is kind of confusing but its how they work.

Fan will not run,how do i test run capacitor


You need a volt ohm meter that will check uF, or a meter specific for capacitors. a lot of fans require a 5uF capacitor. they are very cheap to buy. If your fan gets hot, but doesn't start and the blade turns freely then its probably your capacitor is bad. Just kill all power to outdoor unit and pull the leads off on the common and fan on the capacitor and hook them up to the new on and the fan should start.

Condencer unit fan wont run


If you have power to the fan and the fan won't come on, then its bad. You don't have to do another check. You will know if the capacitor is bad by turning the power on to the unit and taking a stick to start the fan. If the fan starts running after manually spinning, then the cap is bad. If not, the motor is bad.
