If the a/c is not turning on it is a power problem The thermostat turns the system on and if it is bad it won't let the system come on. The way to see if it is the thermostat is by this. 1st take the thermostat off the wall. Make sure you take care in the removal of the thermostat Use a pen and paper to mark where you removed your wires. There should be 6 wires on the system however the wires that you need to worry about are red, green, yellow, white. If you turn off all power to your a/c system at the breaker box. This should be a dual 60 amp breaker, once the power has been disconnected twist together the red,green and yellow wires. Go backto your breaker box and turn the a/c system back on. If your furnace and outside unit come on the problem is with the thermostat at this time replace it. If the system doesn't come on then there is an electrical problem which could be quite a few things that would call for a tech to come check out your unit. Good luck on your repairs

What's your problem? I have a Airtron furnace/air cond unit and last night I smelled a odor that of something electrical burning. I also noticed that the heating unit stayed on and continued to blow...

I'm willing to bet a relay burned up. You likely have your tstat set to auto changeover, meaning it automatically goes from heat to cool to maintain desired set points??

Have a window unit here in Afghanistan. The compressor kicks off and on. I have cleaned the evap & cond. Is there anyway to bypass the hi pressure switch? Its a Wirlpool ACM124PS 1. Thanks! Tim

It sounds as though the outside fan is having a problem. Has someone replaced it? Is the fan in a shroud ? . I am afraid that if you by pass the switch you may cause the unit to fail as I am not certain as to what is causing it to kick out on the HP switch. Could also be over charged? could be outside fan . I need a bit more on this..

I have a goodman central air unit. It was not cooling had service man out the first one said the compressor. So he was sending someone out to replace the compressor. That guy said it was not the...

Calll him back out. It sounds like the air cond. is losing refrigerant rather quickly. When the refrig. leaks off, the compressor over heats and kicks off on internal overload. The first guy probably didn't see that, but the second guy caught it, but didn't check to see where the refrigerant leaked off. Call him back they should warranty the refrigerant if it is all leaked off again

Thermostat not displaying any information. when I try to jump my outside unit and blower wires everything kicks on except the outside unit.

Take the thermostat front off to where you can get to the thermostat wires. Jump R and Y together. See if the outdoor unit comes on. If it does, the thermostat is bad or may have batteries in it that need replacing. If it doesn't come on out side, you may have either a transformer burnt or maybe just a low voltage fuse blown in the furnace. If you jump R, Y and G together, the fan and air cond should work.

Air conditioner comes on but is not cooling the house, new unit

Try going outside and locate your outdoor unit. If the thermostat is on, and the fan is running inside, the outdoor unit should be on as well. If it isn't, locate the circuit breakers in your breaker box. There will be two. Trip them back and all the way forward.

If the unit is running outside, sometimes the air cond contractor forgets to come back and charge the unit with refrigerant. In this case be sure to contact the air cond contractor that installed the unit.

High pressure air cond line has frost about 10 feet inside home

You have a low freon charge or a blockage in air flow. Check the filter if it is clean then there is a low freon charge in your system in which an a/c tech will be needed.

Good luck on repairs

Fan running constantly in the house

Check t-stat and make sure fan is set to "Auto", that might be why fan is running all the time, or it could be a fan relay that is stuck closed. It sounds like you A/C is over charged or you have a bad high pressure switch, this was a common problem with this manufacture especially in the heat mode.

Air handler

This should be doable: First get pen and paper-start at the furnace, theres a group of 5-8 wires leaving the furnace anfd going to the thermostat and a group of 2-3 going to the condenser outside that all need to be identified and the location in the furnace recorded if your furnace has a control board simply right the letter and the corresponding wire color:and whether it belongs to the condenser grp or the T-stat grp.

R-red-to t-stat
C-yellow to cond
Y-red to cond and yellow to t-stat
G- green-to t-stat
W- white- to t-stat

If you dont have a circuit board youll be doing the same thing but using the components rather than letters;

Transformer 24v- red to t-stat
transformer 24v com -yellow to cond
Red from cond connected to yellow from t-stat
fan relay - green to t-stat
gas valve - white to t-stat

K then go to you t-stat and simply connect the corasponding component or leter to the thermostat gterminal

Cond Furnace Thermostat

yellow com- blue -C or B
gas valve or w-white -W
fan relay or g -green -G
trans 24v or R -red - R
red connection to cond or Y on board -Y
Hope this helps.
