SOURCE: Ruud heat pump outside unit trips circuit breaker

Check your wiring between the contactor and compressor for a short to ground, or check the compressor windings for short to ground.
With the Tstat off, the contactor should be open so the only way for the compressor to be trying to do anything is if the 110 volts from the unbroken side are traveling through the compressor to ground. Since 110v is not enough to run it, the overload is kicking it out, cooling off, and repeating the cycle. When you kick on the Tstat, the contactor is supplying voltage directly to ground without going through the resistence of the compressor windings and kicking the breaker.
Post back and let me know what you find.

SOURCE: AC breaker trips after 10 minutes

Whats the amp breaker? Is this for the inside unit or the outside condenser? If the inside and gas heat you have a bad fan motor, If its an electric furnace , the same, but if its the outside unit, the fan could be going bad, locking up and the compressor still runs and pulls high ampsand tripps breaker or the compressor is just pulling too many amps due to plugged coils with dirt , grass or weeds blocking airflow.(koolbreezes74401@yahoo.com)

SOURCE: Hello , this is Bobby

Here's a link to a service manual, with step by step tests to determine whats wrong. I'm thinking compressor shot, but this should confirm, and or help you determine for yourself. Be careful with those capacitors eh !! Read warning in service manual.

2002 4 ton Bryant air conditioner shuts off, fan still runs but not cooling is problem in the controls in the attic or in the AC unit or both?


With a non heat pump it is a simple 24 volt AC control circuit. In the attic there is a relay that is actuated via the fan control wire directly from the thermostat. On the thermostat there is an auto/man switch that controls the fan. Manual the fan runs all the time. Auto fan turns on and off with the outside compressor.

If the system is not calling for cool and the fan continues to run the fan relay is sticking. common problem. Sometimes after running for several days the relay will stop sticking if not, replace relay.

If the system is calling for cool and the compressor stops I would still expect the fan to run until thermostat tells the A/C to off. Some compressor units include a safety switch or high-pressure cut-out switch A blocked internal valve bad control board or external fan in outside unit defective no air flow in outside unit.
High pressure cut out not good,

Suggest turning temp max cool and observe. If acceptable cool and the compressor runs without interruption all is good, except for the blower in the attic. Safely check relay in attic blower circuit.

Hope this helps.

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 RUDD Achiever 11. The outside fan only intermittently runs and seems to quit in the evening (overtime for the air condo techs). It won't start again until the morning but when it runs, it blows...


Two possible problems here.
1. you have a bad condenser fan motor. average cost $140.00 for the part plus installation if you can't do it. just buy the motor you most likely will be able to use the existing fan blades.
2. you have a bad run capacitor on that fan. avg cost $5.00 - $35.00 plus installation
In my opinion if you're handy and safe with electicity save some money, if not have it done.
check out grainger.com for the parts they're very reasonable. for the fan you'll need to get specs from the defective unit like amp. voltage rpm. its all on the unit itself. for the run capacitor you'll need the same. all the info u need is on the parts. search the site for run capacitor or condenser fan motor.
good luck hope this helps

Freezer works Refrigerator will not cool down


The compressor should be OK this time because you caught it in time. But if the condenser fan stops you need to consider replacing the fan. I have had refrigerators do fine until the fan motor warms up and you are away, it stops. Don't think you should use the refrigerator until the fan is fixed. Sea Breeze

Fan does not work.


I'm working on one right now and I believe it's the capacitor. It's hard to find this capacitor. So far I've tryed 3 HVAC suppliers and none have this rare capacitor. First UNPLUG THE UNIT. Take the phillips screws out of each side in the front. Then take the 3 screws out of the face of the control. There are 3 white common wires and a dark brown compressor wire and a light brown fan wire. Take the 1/4 inch screw out and unplug the wires and find another one.
