Question about Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner

I have a Carrier 38ckc036350 Air conditioner. The inside blower turns on but the outside unit only makes a buzzing noise. I belive it is the capacitor, but I don't know where it is located any ideas?

Have you checked your circuit breaker? Capacitors are located in side the unit in the control box. TURN OFF THE POWER. you need a capacitor checker i assume you have one if not have a qualified service person check it out you'll be money ahead in most cases. good luck Tom

Hi,
Either the relay is bad on the board or the motor has gone bad...what you are hearing is the transformer in there but it has nothing to do with the motor other then run the relays that turn on the motor...so... it could be a number of different things...relay, motor, or t-stat...you will have to have someone or you use an electrical meter and trace down the problem.

Hi!

It sounds like the capacitor and/or compressor are quitting. Try getting a Start Capacitor of the same uF (I think 35 uF for Commpressor and 5 uF for fan motor) as the one you have, OR get a Start Kit from any AC parts shop for about $10 and hook it up in line with the old capacitor, if you have a two terminal capacitor plug the terminals one, on each end, if you have a 3 terminal called DUAL Capacitor, each terminal is stamped with the words FAN, HERM and the letter C for common, one lead goes in the C terminal and the other one goes on the HERM.

Install it and turn unit ON. Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

Whistle noise from the air handler


Check the filter and change if dirty or restricted. Make sure the blower access panel is secured. Make sure the cooling coil is clean on the top (outside) and on the bottom (inside).

Carrier fan unit


Poke the fan blade with a stick to see if the bearings are seized up. If it turns easily, you have an electrical problem, like a bad capacitor.
