If you are trying to reset the breaker and it trips as soon as you go to on, you have a dead short or a bad breaker. If you can hear the compressor, if it just hums or vibrates most likely it has an internal short and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: Ruud achiever compressor not running

Relay could be problem. See if thermostat makes relay click. If it does and you hear compressor try to run when it closes, everything is good in control circiut. Then check Start and Run capacitors. May be just one capacitor with 3 terminals on it. If there is any oil leaking out of it or if its swelled, Thats the problem, Replace it with same size capacitor. Mark wires before you remove them. If you hear relay try to close but no sound from the compressor, Check the High Pressure switch. They usually have a red reset button. If its tripped, Could be the condensor fan motor or grass and **** blocking air flow on condensor coil. If you hear no compressor noise and high pressure switch is not tripped but relay acts like its working, Replace relay. DANGER!!! High Voltage!!! Make sure that all power is off of both units before touching wires. Hope this helps. Let me know. Am on yahoo IM as kstfas if you yahoo.

Where is the reset on my energy knight outside A/C unit?


If the unit wont start, there is a contactor relay in the unit that is not closing. You can check the contactor relay with a meter to see if it is being supplied with the voltage that it needs in order to close and switch on the compressor. If you are not getting any power to that, it could be the air handler in the house or the transformer that is not working right.

10 year old Goodman central AC won't come on after mini power outage. Breakers and wall thermostat OK.


Check the start capacitor for proper value and replace if necessary.
Ditto for thermostat. There are also some fuses in the air handler that might need replacement.

You may have had a power surge that had a bad effect on electronics of unit. Make sure that unit is receiving power for one thing. U might try to reset the electronics by completely shutting off all the breakers to compressor and air handler and waiting a few minutes and then reconnecting.

My Armstrong Concept 1200 stopped working yesterday (model EFC14MAA-1A, Serial # 6099F44101, 42000 BTUs). All breakers are OK. On the outside compressor unit, I can depress the relay and the fan and...


sounds like your problem is in the air handler. Sounds like the fan is not kicking on in the air handler this could be the board or the cap or fan motor you can run a micro farad test on the cap that goes to your evap motor be sure you take the leads off the cap and the mf are written on the cap itself. does the outside suction line which is the big line starting to freeze up? you can check your motor winding by running an ohms test across the motor winding. You do this by reading on the motor which wires goes to your start and run windings. You should get and ohms reading and if they are bad you will get infinity.

Compressor stopped working. Air handler works okay. Checked wiring in thermostat-that is fine. Air handler is not frozen up. Breaker shows fine on meter.


Hi,
Check for power out of the contactor...is the condenser fan running?? If so then the compressor should have power...could be the compressor capacitor...or a bad compressor.

Were is the reset button on the unit?


Hi, here is the theory on the reset button on Air Conditioners. They reset via the breaker panel box in your house. Check that first before anything else. However if your unit is popping breakers, it is because the rating for the breaker is incorrect, or there is something that needs servicing usually in the outside unit called the condenser. That piece contains the compressor. A faulty compressor and pop the breaker. Or If the condenser fan that blows over the coils of the outside unit stops (common failure) The compressor will overheat and shut down. That may not trip the breaker but the house will get hot anyway. Usual action for this is to replace the condenser fan motor and starting capacitor. Make sure the speed rating and directional rotation for the replacement motor is the same as the motor removed.
There are other reasons why the system won't come one fully. If the wall thermostat is digital and does nothing. including turning on the fan. There will be a small fuse located on the circuit board of the air handler (part of Air Conditioner mounted inside the house. It houses the circulation fan). That fuse could be blown. That one shuts down just about everything.
On air handlers mounted up into the attic crawl space there is an overflow pan. This pan is mounted directly below the air handler. This pan can fill with water when the drain pain contained inside the air handler starts to overflow because the drain system to that is clogged.
There is a "float switch" mounted in the overflow pan wired to the system in such as way as to shut down the entire AC system if that pan fills.
The handling is to clear the obstruction in the Drip Pan inside the air handler. Then remove enough water from the overflow pan and the AC will run as though nothing has happened.
If you have more questions, write to me on this site.
One thing more. The capacitor alone in the Outside condenser unit can fail and that will stop the condenser completely if it is of a "split" design and used for both the compressor and fan. When replacing this unit alone, ALWAYS find the same specification part.
I hope this helps,
Have a Happy New Year,
Mark

I have a campbell hausfeld 60 gallon compressor 20 amp motor what size breaker should be used


I am not a master electrician but I was an apprentice for 5 years and think you should be ok with a 30 amp breaker. anything less and you may be resetting the breaker when the unit first turns on. Dont forget 30 amp breakers will require # 10 wire or larger, #12 just wont do.

Air handler and compressor on ac is not working


Check the breakers,if they are not tripped then you have a problem with either the t-stat or the low voltage transformer in the furnace may be bad.To check for low voltage remove the front cover of the air handler and using a volt meter check for voltage between the red and common wire.

AC wont kick on....


The first thing to check is your breaker box. There should be one double breaker for the air handler unit, that's the inside unit, and one double breaker for the compressor, that's the outside unit. Check both breakers. If you're not sure if they've be thrown, click them toward the outside of the breaker box (off position) and then click them toward the inside of the breaker box (on position). If the breakers are on and you still are not getting any A/C take a look at your compressor, (outside unit). If the fan is running at least you're getting power. However, your compressor down inside the unit may not be getting power or it may need to be replaced. The compressor has a start-up cap. If this cap goes bad or the wires from this cap fry or corrode away, this will also keep the compressor from starting but the fan will still run. If the fan is not running it could be caused by a faulty relay inside the compressor cabinet. This relay is supposed to open and close based on a low voltage signal from the thermostat. I believe it's roughly 24 volts. This relay switches on and off the 240 volts for the compressor and the compressor fan. Often this relay goes bad or the wires leading up to it fry. If you?re going to work on the unit yourself make sure all power is shut off. There should be a shutoff switch on the outside wall near the compressor. I?d also shut the breakers off.
