The unit may have a blown capacitor which helps the fan start up. The smoke may have come from inside the motor. Best to check the capacitor on the unit see where its at then we can see more. Did the Circuit breaker blow?

Is the furnace fan (indoor fan ) running. If not the problem is with the inside unit. It supplies the control power to operate the entire system and has a control fuse on the circuit board. If it is running but not the outside unit then the problem is outside.

Carrier outside Unit will not power on. Every 45 sec's to a 1min it will make a humming sounds like its trying to power on but wont. The fan unit inside will come on but will not disburse cold air


You probably have a bad run capacitor in your outside unit. You will need to cal a service tech to test and replace it, until then turn your system off until it is repaired. Continuing to try to run it will over heat the compressor and fan motor and cause them damage.

Carrier 38tkb not working, but furnace is blowing


It is probably a capacitor problem. Check inside the outside unit. you will see a round cylinder with three groups of terminals on top. If the top of it is dome shaped it probably needs to be replaced. You can check it if you have a microfared tester. However if it is poofed out it probably is bad. If this is not the problem you will probably have to replace the fan motor.

Is it normal for fan on outside unit to be on while on heat mode


Yes, it is normal with a heatpump, you run the outside unit in cooling and heating.
It is also normal when the outside unit goes into defrost for the outdoor fan to shut off during the defrost mode and to see steam coming out of the outside unit, while it's melting the frost or ice, then the fan will come back on.

The unit come on outside but the fan is not spinning. is there a bearing out. we are afraid we will burn the compressor up if we try to run it with out the fan moving


often the power to the outdoor unit is turned off for the winter season. check your electrical panel to be sure that the breaker is on and then go outside and see if there is an electrical control box near your unit which has a power switch or breaker in it.

I have a carrier infinity system. On the thermostat it reads "sens error" where the outdoor temp is normally displayed. The inside unit is running but the outside unit is not. Any suggestions?


A burned or pitted contactor will/can cause a unit to not run. Outside fan. Just thinking out loud. Start with low voltage check at t.stat then check outside low volt. Set t.stat to on. If fan engages at least your transformer is good. Next set calling for cool. Drop t.stat 68-70. If nothing happens go outside and with a screwdriver depress the contactor in. If fan and compressor kicks in change the contactor. If contactor is pulled in check outside fan. Remove the wires from the compressor and see if the fan will run . If it does you have eliminated start components as good. The compressor has to be check. It needs to be ohmed out. Turn off power at disconnect. Pull the cover on the compressor. Check between pins; then pins to ground. Open or infinite is good.Have you checked fuses. Like small 3-5 amp fuses
