Does this unit have 2 breakers to it? The model you put down is a PTAC and generally just plugs in to the wall so it would have only 1 breaker. If I recall correctly it's got a 5 year warranty on parts so it may be worth it to check with your local HVAC tech and have them do a diagnostic for you. A good place to start would be Amana who can tell you the authorized service company in your area. They'll get the part for free and should roll the diag fee into the repair cost so you'll only pay for labor (if it even needs a part). Their sales and service number is: 1-800-647-2982. Here's a link to your warranty info:

Not cooling


are you talking about a central a/c system? the fan that blows is the indoor air fan? check breakers for outside unit. one breaker in the house panel box and a breaker at the outside unit. because other wise tha cap or contactor (for the outside unit) may be bad. both of witch may keep unit from turning on. unless you are knowledgeable about electricity I would not recommend opening the outdoor unit. you could get electrocuted. safety first

Unit has faint hum but no compressor motor or fan workin


Check the fuses and breakers. If there are fuses, they will be in a small box mounted on the outside near the outdoor unit. You will have two fuses in a cartridge that your local hardware store will check for you.

The circuit breakers may be in the main breaker panel in your house . There will be two and more than likely they will be clipped together. Push them all the way back and then all the way forward to reset. If the breakers aren't marked, they will be 30 amp to 50 amp depending on the size of the unit.

Hope this helps, stay cool. mark

Air conditioner comes on but is not cooling the house....new 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.

First time using my air conditioner after winter. my "inside" fan will run but the outside unit is not starting. My weather king is approx 9 years old


Check fuses and circuit breakers to the outdoor unit. Fuses should be right next to the unit in a box on the side of the house. Easiest thing to do is replace them both. Circuit breakers are in you circuit breaker box. There will be two of them, probably 30 or 40 amp maybe 50 amp if a big house. Trip breakers all the way back and then all the way forward. Hope this works.

AC compressor wiil not turn on


You will have to find the contactor which is located in the outside unit. And check the voltage at the contactor, 26 v as this is the thermostat calling for the compressor to come on. You can also push in the contactor and see if the fan and compressor start. There should be an outside fuse box close to your condensing unit. Good luck

The a/c unit outside doesnt come on but the fan inside of the house is blowing, the unit is not cooling the house. I have a goodman unit.


Hi, this is a split system Goodman. With the j36 in the model number, that tells me it is a 3 1/2 ton unit. If the outdoor condensing unit is off and doing nothing at all, no fan on top running, no compressor or anything, it sounds as though you have lost power to it. The high voltage to the outdoor unit is seperate from the indoor unit. When it is not running, you have only warm air from the indoor unit. Before I have you do anything, go out to the unit. Take a water hose being careful not to bend the fins on the coil, and wash just the coil very good. If its dirty, it can cause the pressures in the system to rise very high and blow a fuse or trip a breaker. When you are done washing it, you should have a electrical box mounted on the wall that feeds power to this unit. First, find your main breaker box to your home. It should be where the meter is. Find it and it will have several different breakers in it. They may or may not be marked. Look for a double - pole 30 to 40 amp breaker that should say a/c, if it was marked. If not, look and touch them, it will be 2 breakers together and feel if they are tripped. If so, turn it off with a hard motion. Then, back on the same way. Watch to see if it holds and does not trip on you. If its ok, go to the outdoor unit. Make sure the thermostat is on auto/cool and turned way down for it to come on. If it was a breaker and its running, more then likely the dirt from coil caused it to over amp and trip. Now, if there is power and breaker is on but still not on, open the box at the unit. It may have a pull out type plug, or breakers. If it has a breaker, turn it off and on like the other. If it doesn't, behind a plastic panel you will have 2- fuses. Turn off power at main box breaker, and remove both fuses. They are cheap, so go get 2 at a hardware store and replace them. You can have them ohmed out to see if one was bad. After installing the new ones and you turn it on, and all is good, that was your problem. May sure you have power to this outside unit. If it was a blown fuse or tripped breaker and this continues to happen, you may have a internal compressor or condenser fan motor problem. Try the things I have said first. This may be the only problem you have. I do this for a living, 33 years and a licensed contractor. Please keep me posted and I will continue to help you if you need me. Let me know after you check everything.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7 :)

Heat pump not running


check your house circuit breakers first that should be labeled heatpump or outdoor unit
make sure it is on and or not tripped
then if you have a box outside near the outdoor unit open it up and see if there is a breaker or maybe fuses that could be blown

We put in a new thermastat and now the ac wont work. Is there a fuse?


R--redwire-power y-yellow wire -cool g-green---fan w-white -heat. If you turned it off &back on too fast, then you probably did blow the fuse on the outside unit or triped a breaker, check your fuse box ,or on the outside wall, theres a gray box called the disconnect box that sometime, house 2- fuses or a plain pull-out with no fuses.

Sounds like you either blew a transformer, have a bad circuit breaker or blew the main fuse in the outside disconnect. If the indoor unit is still blowing air (no matter what temperature) start looking at the power supply to the outdoor unit. From the circuit breaker, the power will go to a small box located within a few feet from the outside unit. This box will have either a lever on the side or you will be able to open the box and pull out the fuses. From this box the power goes to the condensor. The first thing you should do is to turn off the breaker to the outside unit. Flip it back on and if you have a call for cooling, after about 3 minutes the outdoor unit should start. If it does not, shut off power again to the unit by switching off the breaker, go outside and pull out the fuses in the disconnect box. Using a multi meter, check for continuity thru the fuses. If you have continuity, call your technician. If one or both fuses show no sign of continuity, replace the fuse(s). Make sure that the thermostat is working and sending a signal to the indoor air handler. You may be able to check this by turning the fan switch to "Fan" and see if the blower turns on. You may just have a bad thermostst. Caution should be used anytime you are near electrical components. If you do not have the skill-set required to test electrical equipment, leave it to a proffessional.
