When you took the old capacitor off did it have the same type of connections as the new one? If so you should have written then down, or remembered the color coding. If it's different then something is wrong. You will probably have to contact the manufacturer of the AC unit.

Please me know what the manufacturer is, or give them a call.

Thanks

How do i stop my ac from make a loud humming noise when it is time to cold


It depends on what is humming. If it's on the outdoor unit it may be the CONTACTOR. If its on the inside unit, it may be a relay or the tranformer. Can't give a good answer unless we know what is humming. On the o.d. unit is the contactor and its usually what hums only when its cooling. In the electrical panel it is the component that the main voltage wires connect power to the unit. You can change that part and it should go away BUT! I would suggest calling a service tech. Or wait until you need service and have it changed then. A miswire at the contactor can damage the compressor. Work safe!

Refrigerator clicks then hums but does not get the compressor going. Bad compressor - how do you test if starter switch or compressor?


The clicking sound you hear is the overload relay trying to start the compressor. The humming sound is the compressor. Purchase a overload relay kit. Unplug the unit. Remove the bottom back cover. On the side of the compressor is a black box. Usually held on by hard wire clips. Remove the cover. Inspect for burned wires. Take note of the relay components. Remove them and lay them out in the order and orientation in which they were removed. If you see burn marks on the you have a bad relay, also the white 'V' shaped component - shake it. If it rattles it is bad. Replace with the new overload. If everything looks good. With a multi-meter measure the Ohms across the three pins on the compressor. You will get One high reading. Across the other two you will get lower readings. The two lower readings when added together must equal the high reading. If they do not you have a bad compressor. To replace a compressor is a major repair. The cost is usually $600.00-$750.00.

Rule of thumb; "If the repair cost is 1/3 or more of your initial purchase price of the unit - Buy a new unit".

Speakers started making a humming noise


HI:
Usually with audio humming, the cause is due to a bad capacitor on the amplifer portion of the unit. Bad filter capactor in the AC power suppy will cause whats known as AC ripple to enter the system causing motorboating sound or humming. Have the unit check by a technician for poor regulated DC voltage.

Hello I have a 26 BTU LG split unit AC the capacitor in the compressor unit need to be replaced but I don't know how is the wiring connection the capacitor has three heads remarked as...


Hi, The Capactor that you are talking about is a dual capactor. It works the fan and the hermitic compressor in one. The leg common is power into the capictor, The fan leg goes to the outdoor fan, the herm leg goes to the compressor. Good advice is when you change the capacitor you should also change any other start componants that are also there. I hope this helps.

We have a Parmak electric fencer, model # s.e.3 and serial # 4401002. It just quit working. When you plug it in it makes this humming sound and then quits. Any ideas?


That sounds like the circuit board has failed in the unit. you can call Parmak and see about either purchasing a replacement circuit board , or getting the unit serviced by them or an authorized service center.

When a setting is chosen it makes a humming sound and stops water does not run or drain.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If the hum sound is coming from the bottom panel then it is the moto that has gone bad and needs replacement. However, if you hear the sound from the control then it can be due to a bad relay in the control and it is recommended to replace the control completely. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have an Armstrong Air Concept 1000 AC unit won't turn on


Neither of the above solutions are correct. You need to replace the capacitor 35/5 uhf 370 vac the cost should be $15 or less at a local HVAC retailer. Make sure you have the breakers off plus pull the contacts out which are inside the big box connected to your house. Make sure you pay attention to where the wires go. The red wire goes to common, the yellow to compressor (herm) brownish to the fan. The capacitor will be oval not round <!-- from fixya rte -->

Ac fan not turning on I can ''stick start it'' but which direction?


The condensor fan should be sucking air from the top and blowing it through the coils, probably a counter clockwise direction. The buzzing/humming sound is confusing to me. A humming sound sounds like a motor that can not turn over to start. A starting capacity would be needed. Just because you changed it out last year does not mean it is good. A buzzing sound sounds like a contactor problem. Contactors buzz and after a while, they will fail. In any case, you can "stick start" the condensor fan PROVIDED you are sure the ac compressor is working (this is for a short and temporary use). Also, you may have a high load duty capacitor that assists in the unit running. This will affect your condensor fan operation if it is not good. Unless you know all the components and operations of ac electrical, I would highly recommend calling out a professional.

It sounds like your condenser fan motor may be locked up or the capacitor that helps give the condenser fan motor a kick to get it started may be defective. Try turning your system on and using a long screwdriver try to push the fan blade on the condenser fan motor to see if it will run normally if you give it the starting boost it needs.If it does run at full speed and doesn't over heat or start and then slow down then you probably only need to replace a simple 10-12$ capacitor. If it barely turns, makes an odd humming sound or overheats etc. then you will have to replace the condenser fan motor. This is assuming that the outdoor condenser has the 220v supplied and the 24v supplied to the compressor relay, that the compressor relay is engaged and suppling 220v to the condenser fan motor.
