    Is this a new unit or recently installed? Is this a residential unit? Is there any other info you can supply?

Air conditioning condensor on side of house not working


sounds like you need to check your run cap it is silver in the outside unit and it runs the compressor and fan motor. Check on the capacitor what size it is and replace it for example 45+5 uf.

Heat pump i dont know the model


The "R" terminal on the back of the stat should be 24 volt supply to the stat. For a heat pump, when the stat calls for heat, the "W" terminal goes hot (24 V) and should actuate the reversing valve and start the outside unit for heat. when the stat calls for cooling, The "Y" terminal goes hot and starts the outside unit without the reversing valve. The heat strip is used to temper the air while the outside coil is defrosting when in heating. You need an OHM meter to test for a short in the heat strip. A lot of installers are wiring it to heat all the time when in the heating mode if the heat output is too low on really cold days. Try jumping "R" to "Y" and the outside unit should start. Disconnect the heat strip from power while testing. This is really brief, its a big subject. Good luck.

Carrier 38CKC042300. oUTSIDE UNIT FAN WAS TURNING REAL SLOW. ac UNIT IS OFF BUT FAN TO OUTSIDE UNIT IS STILL TURNING. sHOULD NOT BE TURNING AT ALL WITH AC UNIT OFF


The outside fan may run if the unit is in defrost mode this is normal for most heat pumps it is there way of trying to keep the outside unit from staying iced over so the next time the unit runs it will have air flow through the coil and the ice will not be there to prevent air flow.

Blower Turns off if ac unit comes on. No air coming through vents


This only could 1--2 things, a bad circuit board fan relay or bad thermostat. To check for bad thermostat, take off the front cover to reveal the 4-wire terminial and jump the red-wire (power)-cool,(yellow -y or blue)--- green--fan white-(heat)..........red to yellow-or y=cool. Thank-you-very-much!

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
