If the button your pushing is in the unit outside it is a manual reset for high head pressure this cuts off the unit to protect the compressor,you need to clean the coil .turn the unit off and gently push water through the coil in an up and down motion till water comes out clean see if that helps

If the water wash doesn't work, you will probably have either a bad fan motor, or capacitor. You will need to have a meter with capacitance checking ability. If capacitor Is good than motor is most likely bad.

Where is reset button on my outside a/c unit


If you are talking about the condensor that sits outside,there are high pressure and low pressure devices that have a red button on the top of them, turn off power and push the button. They are sometines located inside the unit under the fan. Generally there are none and the unit has internal overloads that kick it out. they reset themselves after the compressor cools down. If it resets after cooling down then ask yourself why it got hot. use a hose and clean the coils around the unit.sometimes helps. make sure fan is running on the condensor outside. It should come on first.

My outside fan will not run and the inside unit runs constantly. can't push the reset button on unit outside


Your out door unit fan motor not runs due to pressure not build up at Heat mode. If its cool mode only fan runs with compressor when thermostat calls for it.

Without having technical knowledge, don't press any reset button. Hope it's helpful?

Outside fan not running, inside unit running fine. Compressor was running this morning, but no longer. Replaced fan motor, turned power back on, now fan or compressor not running. What else can be checked?


Hi,
There may be a manual reset high limit... look for a red button on a round part hooked to the small copper line and push it in hard...
Also the compressor may have kicked the overload and needs a few hours to cool and it reset, that is interanl insdie the compressor.
Contactor may also have went bad...

Our air conditioner stopped cooling last night. The fan runs. My husband pushed the reset button on the outside unit but didn't know if he is supposed to keep it pushed in or just push it in quickly or...


If it is a split unit this is a unit with a furnace and air handler inside with the condensing unit outside. If your inside fan is running ck your outside fan and seeif it is running. If it is it is probably the wires to the capacitor or the capacitor its self. Some capacitors have 3 wires this is a dual capacitor with a 5uf for the outside fan and a 35up for the compressor. on some there are two seperate capacitors one 5 one 35 uf. also it could be the wirng to the capacitor they will be melted and chared. all of this is located in the outside unit where the elect wires go into the unit you can removethe shell but first disconect the power there should be a disconnect switch near the unit. if not trip the breaker. be carefull with the elect.

Rheem outside a/c fan won't turn off


I would probably start at the thermostat and see if 24 volts is continued to be applied to the yellow wire which calls for unit activity even though you have called this off. Shorting the cool (yellow) wire to the return (red) wire will cause the HVAC system to begin cooling and the fan will be turned on automatically.

The outside unit is not working on my Heil Air conditioner


The attic fan is not a part of your a/c system, and you should not run it while you are running the a/c. If you are currently using the attic fan, it is possible that someone wired it so that the a/c won't turn on while the attic fan is on. Otherwise if the thermostat is set below room temp, and says it is calling for cool, then the problem is most likely coming from an issue at the outside unit itself. Make sure to check your fuses, at the fuse panel and outside breaker. Hope this helps

FYI.. the only part of the system that might use batteries is the thermostat.
