Question about Heating & Cooling
I am replacing the double bareel 24 amp contactor relay switch in my Rheem air condenser. I purchased a non-Rheem contactor switch that is also double barrel and 24 amp. However, the connections do not match the original switch. Do I plug in the conncetion on the corresponding sides or is this much more difficult? Help please.
I have a Rheem heat pump/airconditioner, Mod # RPFA-036JAS, that I have had problems with for at least 5 years and have paid over $1,000 in parts and service calls. I can vever recreate the problem when a tech is here. It usually happens in the middle of the night. I hear a Click, ckick, click sound, through the unit and it sounds like it is comming out of my air handler, but the outside unit also clicks at the contactor and the condensor cooling fan moter will start and stop about every half secongd or second. Both contactors have been replaced, the small one twice, one capaciter
has been replaced. I allow the unit too cool down and its alright for a few hours. That is difficult when the outside temp is below zero. HELP PLEASE!

You just need to go wire for wire on the contactor. You can also draw a wire diagram to make sure wires go into same spots.Make sure power is off for safety purposes. As long as amperage of contactor and voltage of coil is correct you should be fine.
