Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a Carrier HVAC unit model #38TKB62300 and the unit outside stopped working. From the exposed wires outside the unit, I noticed that when I pulled gently on some wires, it make a clicking sound. So I took off the cover and back panel and literally the wire connector, feel out of the box. I have detailed pictures of the wires that are not connected. There is a "Brown" wire and "Red" wire that are not connected, so I touched them together to find the Capacitor moving in and out. However, when I connect them, the breaker box switch for AC flips off. Any ideas??

I HAVE CARRIER AC MODEL NO. 38HQR18UP30-03, WHEN START THE AC ONLY THE INSIDE BLOWER IS STARTING OUTSIDE UNIT FAN AND COMPRESSOR DOESNT START.....


It could be a number of things. Check breaker panel inside your house for flipped breakers. Check for bad fuses and check your capacitors. But only if you know how to use a multimeter and shut the power off first and understand how to de energize the capacitor. Otherwise call an electrician of hvac professional. Otherwise doing so can be deadly if your are unsure of electricity

My Carrier Infinity system Model FE4A is leaking water from the bottom of the unit on to the basement floor. How do I stop the leak?


have your HVAC technician check the pressures in your unit...sounds like you may have low pressure. You should NOT be having any ice build up to melt off.

Condenser fan replaced one year ago, fan not turning but can hear motor


the answer to your problem is most likely the motor start capacitor. A AC motor can run in both directions. The start capacitor is used to cause the current to lag behined the voltage which determines the direction the motor will turn. Its posible the start and run capacitors are in one can. so changing one will change the other. However look for a wiring diagram. Do not asume that both capacitors are wired in properly. They may be fighting one another causeing premature failure.

I have a carrier 38ycc030340 that keeps blowing the airhandler 5 amp fuse


Hello, check the tstat wiring from the air handler to the outside unit and check for any wires that are loose or possibly touching metal, also, make sure the wires are connected securely at the air handler, tstat, and outdoor unit.

HVAC Blower Motor Replacement


Ain't nothing to it. Slide out the blower and take it outside. Use some rust buster to get the blower out. Don't beat on the shaft. Spread that shaft and the wheel won't come off. Use a rubber mallet. Most generic blowers have white as a common wire and the speeds are black-hi blue med and red, for low. 2 brown wires will go to the capacitor. other wires will reverse direction. Wash the housing and blower wheel good. any wire unused will be taped off to themselves. Nothing to it.

My Carrier hvac does not come on.


that sound was the contactor closing, check the outside wires make sure they haven't been cut or ripped off unit. Buy a generic a/c contactor and connect it to the low voltage wires and see if it will click. if so install it the same as the old one after shutting off high voltage. If it doesn't click it is in the wires 90% of the time!

My Carrier Home AC unit stopped blowing cold air today. I opened it up and cleaned everything and didn't notice anything out of place, any ideas?


This could be complicated to resolve over the internet but I'll give it a try. When you stated that it stoped blowing cold air, did it stop blowing air all together? Also is the outside unit rtunning?

System Malfunction, No communication with outside unit


I work on Carrier Infiity systems. The outside board has a Model plug on it. This tells the system what size unit it is. They do go bad. You can reset your self by turning the power off to the Air Handler. These system have 10 year warranty and if you still have a problem have the replace the outside control board and model plug. Also you can contact Carrier on the their website and get answers. You may need to talk to a service rep in your area. Carrier is good about their Tech support. You should have to pay for a service call if you your problem continues. Sometimes power surges or stoem cause these problems but not often Rusty
