Check your fan motor capcitor if the blower motor wont run. It sounds as though it is trying to run, as it is getting hot, and is prob. feed from the control circuit that the transform is on

Hi Phillip,

Check your thermostat wires to see if you have any of them which are bare and touching. If any are touching separate them and tape em up and try unit again. You have a direst short in your cooling portion of the unit.

Typically if a transformer is bad, it will just short out and not give you any voltage (and or trip breaker, blow fuse), if its working intermittently and smelling, i'd be more suspicious of the control board and or the wiring to it.

Also anything that has a integrated control board in my experience will either function properly or act erratic. I'd be more suspicious of the board. Is the there customer service number on the unit you can call at all.

I work more on commercial refrigeration and AC units myself, not familiar with this brand.

My thermostat as working great yesterday, this a.m. the display screen is blank. Does it use batteries?

some use batteries and some do not...if it is blank or say -ac then you have most likely lost 24 volt power which originates from the inside heating unit... some units do have a fuse installed for this emergency inthe heater unit..make sure you replace it with the same size if it does... if it does not the you may have burned out the low voltage transformer in the heating unit which is usually caused by a short in the low voltage wiring somewhere. if this is a heat pump system and only happened in the heat mode then most likely the short is on the outside unit....

Disconnect the yellow Y1 wire from the thermostat to the control board in the air handling unit and read the voltage from C - common to the yellow wire. It should be 24 VAC, 0 VDC. If it is, cconnect the wire back to the control board. Now, disconnect the yellow Y1 wire at the outdoor condenser. You should have 24 VAC, 0 VDC. If you have the lower ac voltage and the dc voltage, you may need to replace the control board. Please shut down power before removing or connecting wires and remember to wait for the 3 minute delay before checking the voltage

We have a Weatherking Heater/AC unit the heater works and the AC worked last summer when we tried the furnace this winter no heat found out it was the 24 volt transformer replaced it and heat worked fine...

I think you have a definite short and it's in the 24 volt circuit. The only problem is - 'finding a low voltage short' is not the easiest thing in the world to do - so - I would guess you'd need a Service Tech.

good luck!

Luxaire AC unit control works but the ac unit will not turn on

Sounds like it could be your transformer. See if you can locate it. It should be in the air handler indoors. Check the voltage going to the transformer and check the output of the transformer. You should have around 24 vac on the output of the transformer. If you don't have voltage on the output make sure you have it on the input (120vac). If you don't have it on the input you need to find out why. If you have it on the input but don't have an output then your transformer is likely gone bad. Let me know what you find.

Burn out circuit board

hi! there! replace the burn out circiut board,what ever you pull out the same thing you put back just be sure that has the same model and specification,calibrate and test overload protection,defective overload protection replaced to prevent any burn out,short circuited mostly came to burn those thing that's why imposing preventive maintenace schedule for this kind of large ac central unit is very much significant.mostly timer delay circuit malfunction on large scale unit supplying by three phase a/c source on central control panel board.when ever replacement occured try to put mark or list color coding of specific terminals to connect and isolate short circuit make possible to detect at once before installing the new one and make make record on this for future reference we have several cases like that after buying a new one and replaced still burn again,the common cases is that they did not find the cause of short circuit connection they just relay on circuit board burn out,so it better to make assured that every thing is fine before installing the new one.specially on supply source of circuit.,relay on diagram and manuals take and check all data source as reference this will be a great help.take all necessary precaution this should be done by qualified technical ac support,have a nice day and regards

AC Control Transformer keeps failing.

well it has blown the fuse on the transformer, then you have coil switch bad.It could be the coil on the contath in for cooling.But can check by taking the yellow wire a loose and see if the don't blow. The red wire is one side of the transformer and the com could be any color.But look at the red wire because it is the main wire that travel the voltage throuhg the unit.

Chances are that if your Air Conditioner was the recipient of a high voltage transient that took out your transformer, that same transient could very well have smoked any number of other components in the control system. It may not be worth investing any more $$$ and time to troubleshoot and replace components at this point. If by chance you had a reasonable selection of replacement components that you could cycle in it and test, you might have a shot... otherwise.. I would write it off... ( your call..and probably not what you wanted to hear but merely my humble opinion)..
