Possibly an electrical fault,

Check there is a demand from the indoor unit, all time delay relays functioning, and PCB boards operating correctly, may be an inverter fault. I would advise a HVAC company to attend site as these can be difficult to diagnose over the net.

all the best

Bad compressor? when i turn on thermostat, just clicks on outside unit and nothing happens.


Kill the power to outside unit. Look for burned or broken wires on contactor and capacitor and on compressor. sounds like its in compressor circuit.

have the ac check for gas leakage and proper amount of gas. Is the compressor clutch working and driving the compressor.. What you have is the fan is just circulating cabin air at ambient temperature. Best take it to an ac mechanic for full problem check.

My 4 year old Ruud home a/c compressor stopped working. inside fan blows but compressor won't turn on...what can I do prior to calling the gas company who installed the unit...


Ruud parts warranty from factory is 5 years, the capacitor has possible gone out, it will be in the contol compartment on the out side unit and is a dual run capacitor that controls the compressor and fan motor. Recommend if capacitor is bad to replace entire capacitor. As Stated above the parts are under warranty if under five years old. To verify age the date code is in the serial number after the "F" **** week/year of manufacture. Also outside unit has independent power supply so check fuses if any and circuit breaker.

We have a weather king central air unit mod# WAKA-030JAZ. ser#5339 mo6959417. volts 208/230. compressor rla 13 5/13.5. outdoor fan motor f.l.a.9. mfd 02/05. hertz 60. l.r.a.76. hp1/6 min supply...


I would bet the outside units contactor is bad. This is the device where the two thermostat wire connect outside. If this is pulling in/out as you turn the stat on/off then it is working. I just fixed one yesterday with the same symptoms and found the start capacitors were bad. If they are bulged at the top or bottom then they are bad. Good luck.

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

How do I know if compressor of my house air conditioner is turning on when I start my air conditioner? When I start my air conditioner the fan outside the house turns on, the air is blowing from the vents...


if the compressor is starting there will be a very small dimming in the house lights,if you go outside to the unit and start it from the outside disconnect when the compressor starts you will hear a whine type noise coming from the outside condenser unit that is the hermetic compressor motor operating,no cold air can be a number of issues,low on refrigerant(not likely on the new sealed systems) a bad motor start/run capacitor(quite likely) a bad contactor on the outside unit that supplies power to the compressor,one leg of the 240volts that supplies the compressor power,the fan will run on 120 volts,but the compressor needs 240 volts check the fuses.breaker in the power panel

Air condition compressor won;t kick in


Most likely a loss of refrigerant ( freon ) in the system. The A/C compressor uses a low pressure switch as a SAFETY to insure it wont turn on without freon in the system. Hope this helps.

My house have a gas heating and electric cooling system. When I turned the cooling on the outside fun started but the cooling system inside house does nto start. I tried heating system it dose not start...


if the fan outside is running then feel the compressor outside or listen to it if you can notice that the compressor is running the same time the outside fan is running also.

it could be that the compressor is not running.

but if you can notice that the compressor is making a different sound as it turn on, then the compressor is running but not cooling, then you could have a leak problem. there is no or little refrigerant in the system.

if you have a leak, please contact your local repair man to do it.

tnx 4 using fixya,
