Question about Carrier YCB243D Air Conditioner
Power went out, when came back on I think it burnt something. The fan works but the compressor won't come on. Compressor does make a noise when you turn up the thermostat, just doesn't kick on.

The compressor/condenser is being called all the time. The reason it goes off is because the evaporator (indoors) freezes up when the fan is told to turn off by the thermostat. This further cooling lowers the low side pressure below the low limit switch point turning off the compressor unit.
Solution: Make sure the thermostat is wired correctly. Green wire is usually the compressor wire but maybe not.

Check the voltage source for the fan and compressor
Check the start capacitor for the compressor.If its over heating :bad compressor

Hello, this is one of 2 items...the motor itself, or the start capacitor. The capacitor is responsible for boosting the motor to get it started. Follow the wires from the motor and they will lead to an oval or round cylinder. Check the cylinder for any bulging or leaking oil. When the motor should be running, reach in with a stick or ruler and try to assist the fan to get going. If the it feels resistant...it is most likely bd motor. If it trys to start and feels smooth it is most likely capacitor.

Testimonial: "It was the capacitor."
Unfortunately no, this is one of three things.
1. Compressor is worn and is starting to pull to many amps to operate. Can possibly be fixed by putting a hard start kit on the unit, but will have to be done by a technician.
2. Compressor has an internal short and will have to be replaced.
3. Fuses bad or under sized. Max fuse size is stated on information plate on outside unit.
Sorry to hear about your troubles and hope you can get it fixed soon!
