Daikin split system air con dead


Split system Air conditioners are very often on two or more separate breakers, with a control voltage (24vac commonly) connecting their operation. the condensor unit and out-door fan generally on a 220 vc 'paired' breaker, possibly a quick disconnect near the unit with fuses inside, or an independant breaker pair, and the evaporator unit with INDOOR fan on a 110 or 220 vac breaker.

switch the fan to 'ON' at the thermostat... this is the midpoint of the system electrically. If the fan comes on check for voltage at the condensor unit. a check to see if the thermostat is the problem... remove the thermostat and connect the red, green and either the white or yellow wires (not both) if you chose white you should have heat...yellow AC...

most split system AC have a small buss fuse on the control circuit board of the indoor unit. looks like a glass tube with metal caps held by metal clips. In 40+ yrs experience I have found it is more likely one or both of the 30 amp buss fuses near the outdoor unit (replace both even if one is still ok) or a 30 amp breaker in the quick disconnect box.
In many systems the control voltage to the thermostat derives from a transformer in the outdoor unit... it could be as simple as a broken wire. Without a full diagnostic, a complete description of the unit ( AC or heat pump, etc) this is all speculation

Whether its a central air unit or a wall unit, make sure the condensor is clean and air can flow thru it
make sure the condensor fan is running, the condensor fan keeps the compressor from over heating
if the condensor fan stops running the compressor will over heat and trip the circuit breaker. good luck!

Hello
Before you buy a new condensor fan motor check the contacts to the motor are not worn or pitted.

Hold or push the contactor in by using an insulated screwdriver and see if the fan motor turns.

Also the start cap you bought? was it the correct one meaning mfd micrfarad?

If all the above checks out ok then you need a fan motor,you can wire the motor direct to check it also.

From what you describe it sounds like the fan motor is burnt up and worn out,not uncommon.

Hello, my heat pump is a 4 ton unit, it heats ok but it keeps tripping one of the breakers, the 40 amp cooling breaker. I have put a new thermostate, it keeps running after the breaker is tripped and the...


Hello Jack,

Let me see if I have this right. Your heat pump keeps triping the breaker that is going to your airhandler. The Heatpump is on its on breaker and can not trip the breaker on your air-handler. However, the 40 amp breaker is to you heat pump its self (the outside unit). The thermstat is not the porblem as all it does is call for heat or cool. The problem can be one or a cobination of three things the contactor, the run capcitor or the breaker is weak.

The first thing I would do is replace the breaker as if it has tripped more than twice it needs to be replaced. Then I would look at the contactor, it is located underneath the service panel it will have some low voltage wires on the sides and a black and white wire running to it from the disconect box. If you notice the contacts are chared (little copper points in the middle of the contactor) I would replace it. If the contactor looks good I would remove the capcitor (carefully not to touch to contacts at once as they hold a charge) and take if to the local parts house and have it tested.

I hope that I have asnwered you question and you are able to take care of the problem. Thank you for using FIxya and do not hesitate to ask more questions.

Teco split system freezing up.


When you reversed it the fan stop because it went into defrost mode,Change the filter,clean the coil,let it thaw,and if it happens again,it may have a clogged cap tube or a leak in the system.
