SOURCE: I need assistance with swapping out a contactor.

I don’t believe changing the contactor to a double pole contactor will solve this problem. It appears by your description that bugs are being attracted to the contact points on the contactor. Changing to a double pole contactor will not eliminate that problem but only provide another contact point for the bugs to be attracted to. The most effective solution would be to replace the current contactor with a sealed design where the contact points are totally enclosed. Enclosed contactors are completely enclosed protecting it from bugs and dirt. These type of contactors are available in the single pole design so no further wiring modifications are needed. You can consult a professional A/C service company like mine for more information and assistance.

Hope this helps. Let me know if there's anything I can do for you!

Onmost single-phase compressors with a single-pole contactor, there is a solidbar on one side of the contactor instead of having two contacts. One leg ofpower passes down the bar to the capacitor and to the run winding. It passesthrough the run winding of the compressor and from common back to thecontactor. It lands on the load side of the normally open contact of thecontactor. At off cycle, line voltage will be read from one side of thenormally open contact to the other: Line 1 on the line side and Line 2 on theload side via the windings.
Thecrankcase heater will be attached to the contactor with one leg on the loadside and one on the line side of the normally open contacts. At off cycle itwill have line voltage applied to it and will heat the crankcase. Once thecontactor is energized, both the line and load side of the normally opencontacts become one. Since you cannot feed a load with one line of power, thecrankcase heater will not work again until the contactor opens. This is asimple way to turn the crankcase heater off during the on cycle and to turn iton at the off cycle. Exercise caution when checking this type of setup becausepower is always present on the load side of the contactor.

There should be a wiring diagram on the back of the access panel. If you can't read it, check online for model wiring diagram. Don't guess, you may cause more expensive damage.

Goldair2 180ah airconditioner not cooling.gas still full.how to check compressor?


Johan, there is no way to determine if the 'gas is still full' if the compressor is not running.....so it could be locked off on a low pressure switch because all the 'gas' is already leaked out.

If the contactor is pulled in when the thermostat calls for cooling, but the compressor does not run check for full voltage on the incoming side of the contactor as well as on the outgoing side of the contactor. If its going in and not coming out, the contactor is bad. If is coming out and the compressor is not running, look for a burnt wire first on the contactor then on the compresor dome. Look too for a burnt wire on the capacitor on the terminals marked 'C' and 'Herm'. Check to see if the capacitor is expanded or swollen up. If it is, it is shorted or open internally and allowing the compressor to overheat.

You probably need to call a competent repairman unless you are comfortable working with high voltage and capable of understanding basic wiring principles and able to follow the wiring diagrams to determine where the fault is.

Safety is no accident. You will be exposed to dangerous wire connections and should only trouble shoot with the power on IF you are competent around electricity.

I need to run a contactor ( 40 amps 3 phase ) with the help of thermostat..i have connected L1,L2 n L3 and output coneccted in T 1 T2 T3 . now how to connect A1 and A2 .... i want that contactor should...


1) Copy following links for illustrations showing timer controlling contactor in 3-phase environment:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-3-phase-timer.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/3-phase-timer-diagram-24Vac-865.jpg

2) Substitute thermostat instead of timer for switching control.

3) I don't know what thermostat you have, or if it's functioning or the rating.

4) Which contactor do you have?
Do you have a 3-phase contactor??
Or two-pole single phase contactor?

5) Match thermostat output voltage with contactor voltage:
Thermostat output is 24 volt? Then use 24Volt coil on contactor.
Thermostat output 120 or 277 > then use contactor with same coil rating.

6) More information is needed.
I don't understand description of your wiring.
Add a comment and compare with illustrations sent, so I can visualize ... or attach photo and/or give product numbers so maybe I can locate wiring diagrams.

Wiring diagram for sunquest pro 24 tanning bed


I do not have a diagram, but the contactors are really simple. You have 2 power switches on top of contactor and 2 wires going to the coil. There should be 4 larger wires on top, 2 in and 2 out.

If any of the crimp-on wire fasteners are blackened, then have a trained technician to replace the fastener. If bed comes on when pushing down on contactor with a plastic ink pen, then check the timer by turning on the timer and checking the voltage at the Main Relay Coil. If no voltage, then the timer is bad.

To palaboy: when you talk about a switch on the left most terminals, you mean with this switch im enable the timer???


Question is not clear.

You posted about Dayton on-delay timer?
This timer has two contacts, and wires similar to a light switch.
Connect 120V power to terminal 1
Connect wire going to load to terminal 3
Maximum Load is 1 amp so this timer should be wire to a contactor/relay and not directly to Load.

If you have Dayton off-delay timer, open following link for wiring diagram, and to see examples of contactors:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Dayton-Off-Delay-Timer.html

If you have a different timer, then add a comment with clear description of timer or in-focus photo of timer posted on Flickr

I have a ckL 36-1L CONDENSER UNIT BY GOODMAN I NEED A PICTUR E DIAGRAM TO WIRE UP THE WIRES FROM THE COMPRESSOR TO THE CAPACITOR TO THE CONTACTOR TO THE 24VOLT T-STAT WIRES TO MAKE THE CONDENSER UNIT...


Hi, I can tell you how to wire it, but no diagram. Take the common wire from the compressor, look on the terminal cover or straight at the terminals and you will see C, R, and S. Wire colors vary. C is common on the capacitor, R goes to herm on the capacitor, and S goes to the load side of the contactor, or outlet side, to one of the un- used terminals on either side of 220 volts. That takes care of compressor, R, Run, S, Start, and C, for Common. Low voltage wires will be 2 -18gauge wires coming off each side of the coil on the contactor, connected to the 2-wires coming from your indoor unit, 24 volts. Your off and running unless its off on low pressure switch, and then it will start when you start adding freon.I hope I have been of help to you.

Washer makes a complete wash cycle but does not spin dry. it pumps the water out but the drum does not spin.


Sounds like a rotary switch problem,(unplug the unit first and observe caution,the unit has starting capacitors which might still have stored electrical energy that could zap you) check for loose connections on the switch's terminals if all are okey the internal contactors is defective.Replace it with same parts, do observe to where the color coded wires belongs to. Some units include wiring diagrams pasted on the back lids of the washer unit.

No heat or cool on my payne heat pump


If you can manually push in on the contactor and the fan runs, your not getting 24 volts across the contactor coil.
If the contactor is not energized, your compressor want be running, the contactor controls the fan and compressor.
You need to measure the voltage across the contactor coil and if you don't have 24 volts then you need to either jumper the pressure swiches or measure the voltage across the pressure switches if you read 24 volts then they are open.
If low pressure switch is open you are probably low on refrigerant, if high pressure switch is open it's bad.
If these check out ok then you might check the low voltage wires for loose connections or the wires from unit back to house and under the house to see if there's any breaks or insulation chewed up from lawn mower or animals.

WIREING IN NEW IEC CONTACTOR AND THERMAL OVERLOAD


I CAN PROBABLY DRAW YOU A DIAGRAM BUT SEE IF YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THIS FIRST. ASSUMING YOUR STARTER COIL REQUIRES THE SAME VOLTAGE OF YOUR COMPRESSOR. 230V MOTOR = 230V COIL ON STARTER. YOU HAVE 2 OR 3 HOT WIRES ATTACHING TO THE TOP OF THE STARTER ( 1 PHASE OR 3 PHASE). TAKE A JUMPER WIRE INSERTED UNDER THE SAME LUG AS 1 HOT LEG AND GO STAIGHT TO 1 SIDE OF THE COIL. THEN TAKE ANOTHER JUMPER WIRE FROM ANOTHER HOT LUG - PASS THRU THE TRIP PACK AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STARTER ( IN AND OUT) THEN GO TO PRESSURE SWITCH. TAKE THE OTHER PRESSURE SWITCH WIRE TO THE LOW OIL SWITCH. TAKE THE OTHER LOW OIL WIRE TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STARTER COIL. THEREFORE YOU WILL HAVE ONE SIDE OF THE COIL HOT ALL THE TIME AND WAITING FOR THE OTHER SIDE TO GET HOT. AS LONG THE OTHER LONGER CIRCUIT IS A COMPLETE CIRCUIT IT WILL WORK - IN A SERIES THE TRIP PACK SAYS OK, THEN THE PRESSURE SWITCH SAYS OK, THEN THE LOW OIL SWITCH SAYS OK AND THEN VOLTAGE GOES TO COIL AND PULLS THE STARTER IN. IF THIS IS TOO CONFUSING SEND ME AN EMAIL AND HOPEFULLY A PIC OF YOUR NEW STARTER TO JBRIDGERS@CA-EQUIP.COM AND I'LL TRY TO HELP YOU FURTHER. HOPE THIS HELPS.
