Re: carrier multi hi wall split a/c

I don't have a diagram, but maybe I can help you. You have 2 compressors, o.k. 2 stage system. A single phase contactor? do you mean a single pole, one side breaks, the other is always hot? Speaking of phases, is this a commercial unit with 3 phase? Also, Each compressor needs a separate contactor to carry the load. What is the question?

Do I have to use a wiring harness for Klimaire multi-zone mini split or can I hardwire into the power between studs? Are there any cables that need to run from the wall unit to the outside compressor

The specs on that unit dont list the wattage of the head unit. I would be very careful about just tapping into the wiring in the wall. First off you need to know what the wire size is in the wall. The second thing is that you have to enclose it in a box if you tap it. The outside unit is another issue. It has to have its own source of wiring and it has to meet specs for outdoor use. So you will have to run a circuit just for that. No matter how you do this. You should have an electrical inspection done before it is finished.

How hard is it to change the start componants on a bosch fridge freezer cooler compressor unit,

Hi, if the compressor has a separate start/run capacitor, its a matter of making sure you have the right replacement part, with the right microfarads and volt such as 370 volts X 20uf ( example only ) capacitor. Since this compressor is only a single phase compressor, it will have 1 capacitor on it called a run capacitor, even though it starts the compressor also which then the start winding of the compressor will drop out. # phase units require no start or run devices at all!. It will also have a external overload protector, located behind the cover where the wiring connects to the compressor. You will have a S, R, And C for common terminal. The overload is held in place by a strip of flat metal which acts like a spring holding it against the body of the compressor, so if the compressor gets hot for some reason, it will cause this metal strip to expand and trip the black common wire which kills power to the compressor. This keeps it from burning out 95% of the time. So, if you are having a problem with the compressor not starting, start at the thermostat to see if you are getting full voltage to the compressor terminals using a a/c volt meter. If not and you just want to change out the componants that start the compressor, it will be just a capacitor that has 2 wires coming out of the top of it. Look on the diagram and it will show you where it is.

I need a wiring diagram for a starndard residential split a/c system. Just the outdoor section is fine.

Hi, if this is just a split standard heating and cooling unit, and not a split heat pump, all you need to do is pull stat wire from the indoor unit control board to control the condenser with 5 conductors, but you will only use 2 wires for the control of the condenser. Normally, the red and white tie to the 2 control wires of the contactor. Back at the control board, red to red and white to the Y or yellow terminal. You will also need to set your disconnect box for your high voltage near the condenser, where you will be coming from your breaker to supply high voltage to run the motors and compressor. Very easy to do. If it is a heat-pump, you will need to pull at least 8 conductor thermostat wire to wire this up. I would also need to know what terminals and kind of thermostat you have, and if you are using heat strips for second stage of heat. When you say standard unit, you will only need 2 control wires from the indoor to the outdoor unit, along with the high voltage. Please keep me posted and let me know if you need more help on this. A wiring schematic wouldn't be needed if its just a standard condenser.

Voltage 1phase or 3 phase 240 volts BTUs M# 585epo36o75

Looking at the model number, it appears to be a 3 ton. (36,000 btu) Most all residential units are single phase and most all commercial are 3 phase. One way to tell, look to see if the compressor has a capacitor. 3 phase never use capacitors on the compressors as they are not needed. Some residential units have a "Dual" capacitor. That is, it has 3 terminals, 1 common, 1 for condenser fan motor, and 1 for the compressor. Also, this info should be printed on the unit's lable.
Good Luck and hope this helps.

Carrier hi wall split unit on light flashes 4 times ???

as i am a mechanic in sydney australia, i can honestly say that the chance of you getting help via carrier is very very slim... the reason it is doing that is that it has a legitimate problem unfortunately i have a carrier 42g250h which is flashing 4 times aswell... i have been waiting now 10 working days for carrier to call me to tell me what the problem is... if you can afford to do it, throw the damn thing out and buy a new one, i hate to say it but even an LG will work better than these heaps of ****

Carrier air handler tonnage?

That is a fairly large difference. It is usually ok to have the inside evap. coil and blower up to 1 ton larger than the outside condenser. That will make the unit slightly more efficient as well as less likely to freeze up on low airflow situations. It is not recommended to install a new condenser on an old evap coil. There has been a lot of changes to the design of the coils in the last little while. For example a 10 year old 2 ton coil may only have 3 cubic feet of volume but a new 2 ton coil may have 4 cubit feet of volume.

There are many factors that may have infulenced the decision on what size condenser to install. Many of which can only be done by visiting the home and doing alot of work, checking the duct sizing bioth supply and return, inspecting the insulation and windows of the home etc. etc. Most of the time that never gets done. You can blame the contractor for not doing a complete check, but at the same time you can blame the customer because many contractors that are that good loose the job to a cheaper bid that did not no any of the research. It is a catch 22 for everyone involved.

There is ALOT more to sizing equipment that many people think, sadly that also includes many HVAC contractors. Way too many people use "rule of thumbs" or flat out "guess".

Sorry for the rant but your queston can only be answered by a good well educated HVAC contractor visiting your home. That type of a contractor is getting hard to find these days in such a price competetive world.
