Sounds like you either blew a transformer, have a bad circuit breaker or blew the main fuse in the outside disconnect. If the indoor unit is still blowing air (no matter what temperature) start looking at the power supply to the outdoor unit. From the circuit breaker, the power will go to a small box located within a few feet from the outside unit. This box will have either a lever on the side or you will be able to open the box and pull out the fuses. From this box the power goes to the condensor. The first thing you should do is to turn off the breaker to the outside unit. Flip it back on and if you have a call for cooling, after about 3 minutes the outdoor unit should start. If it does not, shut off power again to the unit by switching off the breaker, go outside and pull out the fuses in the disconnect box. Using a multi meter, check for continuity thru the fuses. If you have continuity, call your technician. If one or both fuses show no sign of continuity, replace the fuse(s). Make sure that the thermostat is working and sending a signal to the indoor air handler. You may be able to check this by turning the fan switch to "Fan" and see if the blower turns on. You may just have a bad thermostst. Caution should be used anytime you are near electrical components. If you do not have the skill-set required to test electrical equipment, leave it to a proffessional.

SOURCE: Breaker keeps tripping

If breaker won't hold compressor is not going bad it is. A simple way to chech your breaker: Make sure breaker is off. Turn power off at outside disconnect. Disconnect the high voltage leads from the incoming at the contactor. Wire nut them. Turn the breaker back on. If it stays engaged you know its not the breaker and you confirm it is the compressor....

There is a fuse inside the control panel of the AC itself. You have to take the cover off (from inside on the ceiling) and look up in there with a flashlight to find it. It is usually a very small amperage fuse - I think a 1 or maybe a 5 amp.

hope this helps

good luck

You have to try resetting the system. First turn the breaker off for the condenser and wait about 20 seconds. After you turn it back on the system should reset.

Outside runs fine but inside squirrel cage motor fails


Go to the thermostat and place the fan switch in "on" and see if the fan runs. If it doesn't then check the circuit breakers. If the circuit breakers are on turn off the power and spin the fan by hand to see if it turns freely. If it does then check the fan capacitor. Let me know what you find.

Ac unit wont start


Sounds like a classic case of a burnt/pitted compressor contactor. The contacts can get pitted and sometimes burnt. This can cause them to stick and the unit will not shut off unless you shut off the circuit breaker. When you shut off the circuit breaker, the contacts would have cooled down which could have led to the problem you are now experiencing......will not come on. Open up the electrical box. Look near the bottom for a brown or black part with the wires from your circuit breaker wired directly to it. This is your contactor. In the center is the piece that moves up and down to allow the electricity to go to your compressor and fan motor when there is a call for cooling. Check to see if it looks burnt or otherwise damaged.

I have a simple comfort 2000 thermostat and the fan will not cut off unless I cut the breaker off. The thermostat cuts the ac unit off and on but the fan will not go off. What could be the problem. I only...


Sounds like the Fan/Auto switch is not working or is out of the circuit. Do you have a Volt/Ohm meter to check the switch? Set the meter on Ohms on the lowest range, turn off the breaker, disconnect the leads from the switch, and put the probes on the connections to the switch. The reading will be near zero when you touch the leads to connections that are turned on by the switch. You can buy cheap meters at Harbor Freight ($5) or other discount places. If the switch is working, it has been bypassed somehow, or the wires are connected wrong. Did you recently install the thermostat?

My a/c will run and cool great but keeps kicking the 20 amp circuit breaker even when no other appliance is running.


A 20 amp circuit breaker should be sufficient enough to do the job unless the breaker itself is too old, or if the connection screws on the breaker are not tight enough.

What causes the pulse control on the ac circuit board to fail?


First check your breakers they are seprerate than the indoor they are in the distibution panel and or next to the out door unit. If still no...then check the control wiring (two or more wires in a cable) going to the outdoor unit the supply the voltage to the contactor which is the swich inside the control panel it can be manually pressed in to checked mechanically with the power off, or electically with the power on. It does have high enough to hurt you, so unless you are comfortable with it you may need a tech.
