SOURCE: Air Conditioner malfunction

Hi, Sounds like you have a short in the control circuit to me. Turn off all power going to the unit. Write down or otherwise mark the wires leaving the control board going to the thermostat. Remove them from the control board. Replace the fuse. Turn power back on and see if the fan still runs. If it does, check and or replace the heat limit switch that brings the fan on during the heat cycle. It may just need adjusted. If the fuse blows, I would think that the control board is probably bad. If it doesn't blow, Remove the thermostat. Leaving all thermostat wires open check them with an Ohm meter. There should be no continuity between them. Twist all the wires together at one end and ohm them again at the other end. You should have complete continuity on all wires. If the wiring checks out, down power the unit. Double check your wire colors and rewire the control board. With all wires open at the thermostat, turn the power back on. Touch the RED wire to the YELLOW wire. The Condensing unit should come on. Touch the RED wire to the GREEN wire. The fan should come on. Touch the RED wire to the WHITE wire. The heat should come on. Down power the unit. Replace the thermostat. Test unit. If the fuse has lasted ok but blows now it is either wired wrong at the Thermostat or the thermostat is bad. I hope I have helped. NOTE: If you can not understand these instructions. Call a licensed Heating / Air conditioning company. kstfas

SOURCE: Goodman Furnace/AC unit not working

3 amp is standard.the fuse is blowing to protect the transformer.It is telling you that there is a short in the low voltage wiring.Goodman also had an issue with the coil shorting on the contactor.To prevent damage.....i'd call a pro.It should be a fairly simple repair.

SOURCE: ac compressor won't come on

iIf this is a heat pump you must make sure thsi reversing valve is changing over. You can check this by switching from cooling and checking for 24vac at the reversing valve.. then switch the unit to heating and check it again. If you have no change the stat is not energzing or de-energzing the revesing valve.

SOURCE: refrig compressor only click but does not engage

Probably the start relay or a bad overload (check overload continuity with a volt/ohm meter) Maybe a broken or burnt off wire inside the compressor terminal cover. Possible, but unlikely compressor locked up. Unplug it before getting into the terminal cover.

Fridge wont turn on


After ensuring power is going to unit, I would be looking at either compressor or thermostat or control board. If compressor is not running at all, not even clicking, then board or thermostat is most likely the problem. If compressor is running or trying to run, then starting device for compressor or compressor itself is bad.

Compressor want come on


Here is what to do . Pull out or turn off Electrical disconnect behind unit . Carefully remove panel covering controls in unit . Note most units have a flat panel with a few screws, but some GE units have a welded metal box on top of unit which needs to be removed. After exposing controls. replace or turn on disconnect. Then take a plastic handled screwdriver and push in on center of contactor (boxlike part with a lot of wires hooked ) If the compressor now comes on release contactor , and check for 24 Volts AC at base of contactor where thermostat (small wires that run on outside of black refrigerant line ) with thermostat on and calling for cool you should measure 24 to 28 volts . If voltage is present replace contactor after disconnecting from power. If no voltage go inside , remove cover from thermostat, and check for 24 volts between red ( R) and yellow (Y ) terminals on thermostat , If voltage is present , replace thermostat , no voltage check voltage in heater / air handler if you have voltage at air handler , replace thermostat wire from heater to thermostat / if no voltage check for blown fuse in heater , this should be either an inline fuse or an automotive type fuse plugged into circuit board (with power to heater disconnected check broken wire or black mark in fuse when held up to light. If fuse good turn on power to heater and check for 230v to one side of transformer, if you get voltage to Primary (incoming side ) of transformer, check output side of transformer for 24 - 28 volts. If transformer shows input but no output replace transformer after turning power off. If you heard a buzzing or grinding noise , when pushing in contactor , but compressor didn't start look at run capacitor (this is round or oval shaped object with wires going to contactor and compressor ) Looking at area where wires plug this should be a flat surface , if it looks domed shaped or bulging out , it is blown and needs replaced , use same mfd rating and 440 Volts to be on safe side. / If there was no noise from compressor when contactor was pushed in , put your hand on top of compressor (black object in center of unit ) If hot , allow to cool for at least three hours with power to unit turned off and retest . If compressor comes on after cooling , check for bad fan motor in outside unit (it may make a squealing or wining noise and stop runing for a while , also check for / clean outdoor coils
Hope this helps .
Thanks,
Alex

Doesn't power up, test and reset buttons don't help. Using heavy duty extension cord,does it have to be plugged inj directly?


First, you want to make sure that you have power at the plug that you are using for your air conditioner. You can test it with a voltage meter or simply plug something else into the same outlet (if the receptacle is 220V, you will need to measure it with a voltage meter). If it works, you know you have power to the air conditioner. If it doesn't work, you'll need to check your fuse panel for any blown fuses or your circuit breaker box for any tripped circuit breakers.

Air Conditioner Control

If you have power, it could be one of several problems that are keeping it from running. Many times an air conditioner can't start the compressor if the amperage or voltage is too low. This can happen, especially if you run the unit from an extension cord or have something else that draws a lot of power on the same line. The compressor initially takes a lot of power to start.

Air Conditioner Switch

If you hear any odd noises coming from the unit, it could be the compressor trying to start, but unable to do so. Another part that causes odd noises is the overload/relay. This causes a click-buzz-click sound near the compressor. This is the overload/relay working, and it protects the compressor from damage by cutting power to it if there's a problem. If you hear this, the compressor has power, and it means something is wrong with the compressor. If the compressor is the cause of the problem, you'll need to contact a professional appliance repair person.


Air Conditioner Thermostat

Also, any of the control components could be the cause of your problem. These include the control board, the selector switch, and thermostat. The control board controls the overall operation of an air conditioner, and if it is bad, it may prevent the unit from operating. The selector switch is used to adjust the settings that you want on your air conditioner. The thermostat controls the temperature. In addition, the wiring between any of these components could be to blame.

Sometimes the plug for the unit gets burned on the end that goes into the outlet, or the outlet itself gets scorched. This will reduce the contact points and may not allow any or enough power through to operate the unit. If this is the case, you need to replace the plug and outlet as it is also a fire hazard. You may want to call a professional electrician for this job.

Does not cool


CHECK FREON LEVEL...IF GOOD CHECK FOR DISCONNECTED
THERMOSTAT OR COMPRESSOR OR CONTACTOR WIRE AT OUTDOOR UNIT WITH POWER OFF. CHECK FOR A BLOWN CAPACITOR OR UNIT GROUNDED OR BURNT WIRE. BAD BREAKER OR SEE IF OUTDOOR FAN COMES ON AND COMPRESSOR KICKS IN ( MAKES WHIRRING NOISE ) .

INSIDE CHECK BOARD FOR BLOWED FUSE, GROUNDED WIRE, MAKE SURE SYSTEM IS GETTING 24 VOLTS, IF NOT CHECK THERMOSTAT WIRES OR TRANSFORMER ON INDOOR UNIT.. IF YOU SET THERMOSTAT TO OFF AND ON AND THE INDOOR FAN COMES ON..YOUR GETTING 24 VOLTS.NOW YOU NARROWED TO THE BOARD OR LOOSE WIRE, FUSE OR THERMOSTAT. IF YOU TURN YOUR UNIT ON COOL AND AUTO AND THE INDOOR AND OUTDOOR FANS COME ON AND THE COMPRESSOR KICKS IN
BUT IS NOT COOLING...CHECK AND POSSIBLY ADD FREON...
ALSO CHECK AND MAKE SURE INDOOR BREAKER IS ON.

3amp fuse is blowing.


Disconnect the yellow wire from the thermostat and tape off the end. Turn the power back on. If the fuse blows, it is not in your wire nor the compressor contactor. If the fuse does not blow, turn off the power, reconnect the wire, and replace the fuse. Then, disconnect the wire from the compressor contactor and tape it off. Turn the power back on. If the fuse blows, it will eliminate the compressor contactor coil and will likely be a "short" in the wire itself. The yellow wire goes from your T-stat to your air handler and from your air handler, it goes to the oudoor unit's compressor contactor.

Refrigerator has a clicking sound and does not run


Replace the motherboard (part # WR55X10942) but be careful to check that the evaporator fan (inside the freezer) turns on when you power up the refrig again. A bad evaporator fan motor can take out the motherboard. If compressor starts with new board but not evap fan, unplug immeadiatelly and replace the evap fan motor to save new board.

Compressor doesnt come on in a dometic duotherm rooftop ac unit.Fan runs but no compressor


If this is a wall thermostat controlled unit, then check to make sure that you have power coming from the yellow wire on the thermostat when it is placed in the Cool/Auto High mode. If you do not have power at the yellow wire, then you have a bad thermostat. If you do have power, then remove the control unit from the inside of the AC and see if you have power at the Y terminal there. If so, when you turn the thermostat to cool, can you hear a relay clicking in the box? If not, then you have a bad control box. If the relay is clicking, you need to check the power at the compressor relay on the board. It has a black wire to one side and a purple (or blue) wire on the outgoing side. Check to see if you have 120V on the blue wire when the tstat is set to High/Cool. If not, then you need to bypass the freeze switch to make sure that is not the problem. If you do, then you need to go upstairs and check the start capacitor for OK. It is located in the side compartment of the upper unit, it has a small black relay on the top called a PTCR. These often burn out and will cause the compressor not to work. If that is fine, then you go to the top of the compressor to the thermal overload switch. See if you have power at both sides, if so, then you have a bad compressor. If not, then the overload switch is open and not allowing power to the compressor.
