Carrier model 38tdb air conditioning unit kicks out the 40 amp breaker. Also moisture under compressor unit outside. What is problem?


What breaker? The breaker for the condenser? Likely have a compressor shorted to ground or drawing locked rotor amps. Easiest way to tell is make sure breaker off, unhook compressor wires from contactor. Turn on breaker and turn on machine. If the breaker does not trip, obviously problem with compressor

Heater will not activate until outside temp. is above 40 degrees


If you have a heat pump the compressor is locked out below that temp. If you have a dual fuel - hp/gas, the gas burners should come on as would the electric heaters if you have electric heat as backup.

Problem with GE PTAC-Model# AZ28E09DABM2 - Why won't condenser kick on when switching to AC from Fan. AC was working fine until today...Fan is still working...Pulled the unit out and could feel the h


Hummm. A bit difficult to solve this problem. Seems like the condenser outside is not working, I mean the fan of the condenser. Looks like you have a wall A/C and a wall A/C always have condensers outside the house and near the A/C. Have you checked if the fan is spinning? I don't think the compressor is at fault but check it anyway. You should be able to hear the compressor running either in the wall unit or in the outside condenser housing. The only heat you should feel is from the condenser itself. If you blows warm air, that means the fan is working, if not that means the fan is not working. But don't be confused with the fan not working because in winter time sometimes the fan is not working and some times it does. As I said, it's a difficult problem to solve but at least start with checking the situation with the fan in the condenser.

Hello, The fan on the outside condensor (38tkb042300) runs for about 45 mins and stops. Turning it off and back on will produce the same results, might you help me understand what could be causing...


There are many possible reasons why it happens that way. Basically, when the unit have reached the desired room temparature,compressor stops as will as the condenser fan.Please try to set your thermostat at its coldest setting, if the fan at the outside condenser still stops, consider replacing your thermostat, it migth be defective.

About the only thing that it could be is a dirty coil,or some one over charge the system, I have seen just a layer of dust cause the compressor to cycle off to its thermal over load. Clean the coil.
