Turn off the power to your condenser unit, Open the electric panel on the unit.
Inspect the capacitor and see if it is swelled up, sometimes there are two and sometimes there is only one capacitor.
The larger one is for the compressor, if there is two of them.
Most appliance supply stores can check these for you and verify if they are bad, if it is then purchase another one and replace.
Make sure to write down where the wires were located.
Also verify the wires that are attached to the compressor are not burnt or broken/melted etc, by removing the cover from the compressor.

Good Luck!

I have a split system air conditioner that quit blowing cold air


either the compressor is not running or you have a leak and are low on freon. the outside fan running does not tell you the compressor is running.

Split AC capacitor fused.


You need to trace the wires back to the device ie compressor, the fan now then write the color down. Note the capacitor has two different sides to it herm which is compressor and fan. then the common in the middle. Take the compressor wire should only be one and connect it to the herm. Now take the fan should only be one again and connect to fan. two devices connected. You might have two more wires and they go to the common. If you need any more help just get back to me. ken

I have a honeywell Design Air reverse cycle aircondton system. Two weeks back it stopped working. When I switch it on it starts the system. The air is flowing but it is not cooling. what could be wrong and...


Hi, Just to to let you know, I am a contractor for heating and air conditioning. You have a split system heat pump it sounds like to me. If you have the indoor unit and an outdoor unit, this is a split. If the blower is running but not getting cold air, there could be several problems that would cause this. The service tech should be able to troubleshoot and find the problem in 1 hour or less. Depending on who you call, you are looking at anywhere from $65.00 to $85.00 per hour. Some places also charge you a travel or truck charge of $20.00, try and stay away from them. It will be a 1 hour minimum and in 1/4 hours there after. It could be a quick fix, breaker, fuse, or a serious problem as a compressor. This is what you are looking at. If you do have a split system and the outdoor unit is not on, check the breakers and fuses before you call any one. This may save you many $$$$$!! If you have a system that is all in one or a package unit and the blower comes on, make sure the outdoor fan is running ( condenser fan motor ) and listen to see if you can hear the compressor running. If you do have a split unit, go to the outdoor unit and see if the fan is running and compressor also. If not, check you're power supply. You may get lucky.
Sincerely,

I have an airconditioner a Kelvinator KSR20C Split system


Your condensor fan motor has more than likely gone out. This fan should run at all times when the unit is on. Since the fan isn't working then the motor must have gone out.

Blueway air conditioner not fully cooling


Check the radiator for dirt, and check if the radiator fan is functioning. Do you notice any wetness or ice build up on the outside copper pipes. If so, suggest calling a refrig. tech. to add gas. The gas used is R22 on most aircons.

Broken barrel fan


I am not familiar with the Blueway brand but have never seen an air conditioner on which you could not replace the fan.

Is this a split system or a window unit? If a window unit it may not be worth the trouble.
