Model 9023C876 ac/heat pump runs but ozone smell

Model 9023C876 ac/heat pump was running with continuous fan on then a sound like a spark and ozone smell came from unit. The fan still runs but when the compressor comes on the ozone smell is prevalent. We have turned the A/C off and are using the other unit (same model). Does anyone know what the problem is and what we can do to fix it?

SOURCE: High Pressure cutoff

YOUR OUTDOOR FAN MOTOR SHOULD NEVER SHUT OFF IN THE AC MODE. IT IS SUPPOSED TO SHUT OFF IN THE HEAT MODE WHEN ITS IN DEFROST. IF THE UNIT IS RUNNING IN COOL AND THE OUTSIDE MOTOR QUITS ,THE COMPRESSOR WILL QUIT SOON AFTER. EITHER THE RUN CAPACITOR FOR THE FAN IS BAD OR THE FAN MOTOR ITSELF IS BAD, IF CAP IS GOOD THEN THE MOTOR IS At FAULT. THE OUTDOOR PRESSURE SWITCH CAN ALSO OPEN IF THE INDOOR FAN MOTOR FAILS IN HEAT OR THE FILTER IS PLUM NASTY in heat OR THE INDOOR COIL IS PLUGGED UP in heat.. THE PRESSURE SWITCH USUALLY TRIPS AT 400 TO 425 SO ITS WORKING CORRECTLY. YOU MAY BE CONFUSING THE ISSUE SAYING THAT THE AIR IS HOT AND COLD INSIDE. IT IS COLD WHEN AC IS RUNNING HOT WHEN HEAT PUMP IS RUNNING IN HEAT BUT ESSENTIALLY not cold or hot if compressor isn't running, but a lot of folks describe the lack of cold air as hot when the compressor isnt running. but it basically is warm or house air temp.you test the capacitor with a capacitor tester or take it to motor shop and let them test it. odds are its a 5 , 7.5 or a 10. it should test within 10 % of rated value . ask for a RESCUE brand replacement motor. they are great ,reversable etc.carefully oil and sand the motor shaft and note exactly where the blade was located in relation to the grill so you get it back just the same. usually they wire up black to a leg of 220 power. white to the other leg of 220 power. brown and brown with white stripe to the capacitor.you can also pull whole fan shroud assembly on some units and take whole thing to motor shop and let them test motor cap, replace and all you do is return to unit and connect two power leads,

SOURCE: Window AC - foul smell

if the unit is cleaned and this smell is only when the condenser is on means the fresh air is open and this smell comes from outside . because the condenser fan is sucking air from condenser through it to motor side .

SOURCE: Ruud 5-ton 10 SEER heat pump compressor turns off after 20 minut

You may have cottonwood on your compressor. Before you spend any money, do two things. Rinse off your compressor to clear any cottonwood, and check your filters, they may need to be replaced. Hope that helps!

SOURCE: compressor on my RV coleman ac unit bogging down

Take a look at your start capacitor. This the capacitor that kicks the compressor over when it tries to start. If the capacitor is bad, it cannot kick the compressor back over after the first cycle because the head pressure has not evened out yet. It is located in the upper unit on the side panel in a small box. Be careful, highly charged capacitors can zap you if you are not careful. Disconnect power and touch across the terminals with a meter or a screwdriver to discharge the capacitor.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

Ozone is not good for you. If you can smell it, it is set too high. Look at it in dark room and check for blue orange glow inside the fan louvers. If you see the glow, it is working

New Lasko Tower Fan smells when we have it on the ionizer option? Is this smell toxic?


Ionizers generate ozone, that is the same smell that you would have near an electric motor or a copy machine. The smell is caused by electric sparks that occur during the ionization process. Essentially high voltage is applied to a grid, air passes over this grid and electrons jump off of it and into the air. They then attach to any particles that are present in the air and make those particles attractive to anything less charged than they are.
There is a limit to how much ozone an air ionizer is allowed to produce because ozone is a respiratory irritant and is not desirable to have in large amounts. Ozone also damages rubber. A commercial air purifier has to certify that it is in compliance with that law in order to be sold. The difference is that they can change characteristic based on how clean the grid is and how much humidity is present.

Have a goodman heat pump and air mover smelt plastic burning and cut tremostat off fan continues to run with a little warm air coming out with it off on thermostat


Hi, did you smell this plastic burning at the thermostat? The stat is only low voltage, 24 volts but may have shorted the fan contacts together causing the fan to run. The way to check is to take the first section of the stat off. Get to the wires coming in. Should have several since it is a heat-pump, but remove the red wire and tape or clip the bare end off. Turn on breaker back on. If the fan stays off, the stat is faulty. Make sure you buy a heat-pump stat. If fan keeps running, the problem will be in the main board/defrost board. It has shorted causing the fan to run and this is where the smell came from. You can sometimes remove the 4 screws to board and look at the back and if your lucky you will see the burned spot. Make sure the breaker is off first. Let me know. Good luck,

Ozone smell


When the unit is clean it will produce more ozone. If the unit is a bit oversized then it becomes worse. As an installer I have to be carefull to not oversize these units. O3 is harmless and actually will only stay in the air as O3 for about 1/2 hour. Because of this it will not build up in the air. O3 also in a powerful disinfectant and will help kill mold and bacteria in the air. As soon as the filter gets a little bit of dust on it the O3 production will become much less. Run your fan continuously for a day or so and it will go away.

Need a disasemble/reassemble diagram/instructions for a cf-51


Hi!

Im not sure that you will get rid of the smell even if you vacuum clean it, but i know HOW to get rid of the smell permanetly. I work with thing like that.

I will try to explaong for you in my poor english. There are companys who works with cleaning up after a fire, the go in, start up a machine and do a "Ozone cleaning". That ozone machine kills all the oxygen in the room and that kills all the smells there is in that room. So what you need is to either borrow a ozone machine or contact a company that do ozone cleaning. Its not expensive anf it take 24h . Do that and you will never again smell that fire smoke.

AC/Heat Fan runs continuously and Rear end roaring noise


Sounds like the wheel bearing on the right rear hub may be defective, that would cause the noise if the tires are ok. As far as the fan goes not sure this isn't working as designed.

TOYOTA CAMRY 2001, WHEN SHOULD THE FANS SPIN?


when the car is running, there is enough air to cool the radiator, however, when when the AC kick on, the radiator absorb more of the heat from the AC coil. there by require more cooling. the 2 fan are there for that purpose.
as far as the smell of antifreeze, you nee to check all of the cooling hoses, in the engine compartment and under the dash. sound like there is a small leak some place.

Bad smell from ac unit in my house


does it smell like literally , dirty socks?if so it is dirty sock syndrome, a plague of heat pumps for years. if it smells like an electrical melting or burning of wires then time to call a pro.it could be a weak capacitor or a weak fan motor. if it is dirty sock syndrome then its the microbes that thrive when temps are middle temps and reproduce when temps are hot and cold in intermittent days. hot one day and cold the next equals call for cool then call for heat and hot steam from heated coils cause s bacteria to grow and microbes to spread across coil. when you switch back it causes the smell.if the coil is clean you can spend a chunk of money on sanitizers but best bet is to run it cool for hot weather and hot for cool weather. the transitional periods are what create the smell. avoid semi cool and semi hot periods. this condition is common to acs from all brands . lots of stuff on the internet about dirty sock syndrome
