Clicking sound is the contactor engaging to start the outside unit. Check for a burnt off wire at the contactor. For some reason you are not getting power to the outside unit. If you find a burnt off wire shut off all power to it then remake the connection at the point of the circuit break.

The brown wire goes to the capacitor. It probably shorted out with the nicked wire. Replace the capacitor.

SOURCE: central air blowing warm air

2 things could be happening. 1, inside unit needs filter changed and coil cleaned. 2, unit is low on freon. A/C tech should be able to check for both. You can check the a/c coil to clean it yourself but to check for low freon this will have to be done by a a/c tech due to the complexity of the system. the ice is caused by a series of things however, check the a/c filter and the coil located behind the filter. this coil should be free of any debris. if you have indoor pets sometimes the hair clogs the coil causing the freeze up.. To clean the coil you need to get a small weed killing sprayer.. At the a/c supply house you can purchase cleaning solution that is easy to use an safe for the enviroment also leaves your house smelling great. if the coil inside has been cleaned check to see if the coil outside is clean if not you can clean it with a water hose by spraying the coils out. MAKE SURE TO KILL THE POWER beforehand. Also spry the water onto the coils only and spray in the oppisite direction of air flow. Have system checked by a/c tech if you do not feel comfortable doing any of these suggestions

SOURCE: Condenser fan running backwards on heat pump

I am having the same problem, sometimes it runs in the wrong direction, blowing the air down. Sometimes something gets tripped and I need to turn the thermostat to off and wait a bit then restart it. If I am lucky it will run int the correct direction and also will warm the house. Sometimes it send nothing but cold air to the house's forced air.

SOURCE: I need help with a buzzing sound in my air conditioner.

It is probably the compressor humming. They can make some funny noises especially on start for a while. If the unit is not cooling it may be the start capacitor or the comressor may be locked up.

Central air conditoner outside unit

Well, the answer is yes. I have seen a bad capacitor cause a fan motor to run backwards. BUT..... After replacing the capacitor and WIRING it up the right way, everything should be fine. A lot of aftermarket condenser fan motors are reversible, so it can run counter-clockwise (CCW) or clock-wise (CW). However, most factory fan motors come one directional and on your specific unit, the air should always push out of the top. Running the unit with the fan going backwards will actually some-what do it's job, but damage other components like the compressor because it runs at higher operating pressures than what it is designed for.

Have someone else look at it! That's going to be the best advice I can give you. If they can prove that a capacitor caused the motor to permanently run backwards..... I want to know! Hope this helps and good luck with your unit.

When i turn my central air on the fan not running so do the motor and i don't know why. i have this goodman central air for four year now.

I had the same problem with the fan not running and the compressor hard starsting. It turned ouot to be just needing a new capacitor. I also bought a "hard start" unit to hook to the new capacitor to ease the burden of the starting in case there is low voltage to the unit during high usage times. The very first thing I would check would be the capacitor. Don't fool with this yourself unless you first discharge the capacitor, as this is very dangerous unless discharged first.

My outside fan will not run and the inside unit runs constantly. can't push the reset button on unit outside

Your out door unit fan motor not runs due to pressure not build up at Heat mode. If its cool mode only fan runs with compressor when thermostat calls for it.

Without having technical knowledge, don't press any reset button. Hope it's helpful?

I have a 1979 general electric central air unit that the compressor runs but the coolant fan won't come on. The fan turns freely by hand. Any tips? The model number is BTN924A100A3

It could be a bad motor or capacitor. It also might not be getting any power. If it uses a head pressure switch or a condensor temp control to slow the fan on cooler days, it could be that also.

Central air unit runs but no cold air from the start. after a while coil freezes up solid.

Maybe dirty air filter or slow fan motor or if the ice build-up does not cover whole of coil it maybe short of gas due to minor leak.

I have a GE central air conditioner model

If you are talking about the indoor fan it is probably a bad capacitor. Replace the fan motor capacitor. And YES, if the fan motor needs replacing too, you can DO-IT-YOURSELF.
