Problems with the fan are one of several things to consider.
1. Is their power to the fan motor.
2. Does the capacitor for the fan hold a charge and/or discharge (There are metering devices that can identify the condition).
3. Are the fuses blown (If Applicable)
4. Is the breaker to the condenser tripped.
5. Are the windings on the motor closed or open.
6. Are the winding (when using an Ohm Meter, Check the resistance from ground to one of the lead wires, making sure power is disconnected and all leads are disconnected from the terminal points. There will be high resistance if there is not a short from the windings to the frame ground.

These are simple checks I make to determine the motors condition. Sometimes a wire does come loose or cut or even burned. I trace the wire from point A to B and also making sure the wire terminal connections are tight.

SOURCE: 38cks is blowing air but it's not cooling

First thing, are the filters clean? If so then you have lost some gas from the system and need to find and repair the leak, and put in correct gas charge.

SOURCE: I have a Carrier 38CKS

Sounds like your fan motor is going out keep an eye on it it could just have been the first start of the season. The unit does sit there all winter not moving. If this continues replace fan motor and capacitor. If this helps please rate me and do a testimonial.

Carrier model 38cks air conditioner compressor fan


sounds like you need to replace the condenser fan motor. It has a thermal overload inside the compressor and will shut it off before it harms the compressor. The only way to get it to reset is cool down the compressor with a water hose.

Thanks for your detailed information. But solution is very simple. The compressor contactor in out door unit. Struck. And hence, when you power on, without indoor commanding, the out door starts running.

Replace same type Contactor relay (In out door unit) immediately. Hope, it's helpful.

You have bad cccccccccapacitor in your outside unit. Not hard to replace but you need to find someone to sell you one It should say 45 5 or 50 5 on the side of the capacitor. You can also call a service tech about 150 for the repair. Rus Carrier Dealer 45 years
