Question about Air Conditioners
AC FAN BLOWS BUT CONDENSER DOES NOT COME ON. WHEN BREAKER IS FLIPPED-UNIT MAKES CLICKING NOISES BUT STILL DOESNT COME ON. WE HAVE FLIPPED ALL BREAKERS AND HAVE NO IDEA WHAT ELSE TO DO. UNIT IS ONLY 6 YRS OLD. HELP!!!
I think you mean compressor rather than condenser. Take the panel that covers the controls off the unit. If the clicking noise is the contacter, and it is engaging when the power is turned on, then follow the wires to the compressor, remove the little plastic cover and look for wires that are burnt or otherwise not making contact with the compressor terminals. If the wires are good and you have a volt meter, set it to ohms, TURN OFF THE POWER, remove the wires on the compressor. (remember where C,S,R, goes) touch the meter to any 2 terminals on the compressor. They all 3 should have continuity to each other. No continuity=new compressor. If the contacter is not making the clicking noise when the power is turned on, then you have another problem that I'll need more info. to help.
