Question about Carrier 38CKC060 Air Conditioner
If the unit is not shutting down, then there is a chance the contactor has gotten stuck. This is not a good thing. If the contactor were to weld itself shut and the outdoor unit were to continue to run without the indoor fan running for an extended period of time, the compressor could be damaged from the floodback of refrigerant to itself.
Feel the air coming out of the top of the outdoor unit, it should feel warm to hot. The copper lines- the smaller of the two should be warm and the larger of the two (should be insulated) should be the cool one...not necessarily really cold....
If the copper lines are both the same temperature, its an indication the compressor is not running. This may be a bad contactor, a failed capacitor, or the compressor itself may have a problem with it.
If you can get the system running, it would still be best to have it checked out and looked over. There may be underlying problems that are creating the problems you are currently experiencing and its always best to find the root cause or problem rather than the smaller issues that just cover up the real problem.
