My contactor switch will not remain engaged. I

My contactor switch will not remain engaged. I have replace it, worked for about 4 hours then quit.
Yesterday, the unit stopped cooling. Discovered an overheated and burned lug on the outside ac disconnect switch. Replace component, outside ac ran fine. Cooled great until about 9 pm. Check unit in the morning and found contact switch would not remain engaged. When contact was pushed manually, unit ran fine. Picked up new contact, installed, unit ran fine until about 8 30 pm. Inside blower motor running, outside unit not running. Assume contactor not engaged. Replaced contact switch number 261661 with 261662. Any ideas?

This means the contactor needs to be replaced. When they do not engage when power is put to them they are bad.

A/c outside unit is not working- fan will not work.

I assuming that the black box is a 100 amp breaker, which is connected to your condsensing unit (outside unit). If you open the box and pull the fuse then this will turn off/kill the power to your unit. As far as the buzzing noise it could be that the contactor is engaged. Hopefully, your fan motor is burnt out or the capicator is bad. If you take the access cover off and check for voltage at the contactor you should know if it is the fan motor. The voltage will come in at the bottom T1 T2 T3, once the contactor is engaged L1 L2 L3 will have the same power. Of course if your contactor is not engaging then thats the probelm, you can manual engage the contactor by pushing it in. There will be four wires two running to the capicator and the other to the contactor, these are the wires that control the fan motor. The other three wires run to your compressor. Hope this Helps Tim

Contactor not engaging to start condenser unit . When setting the thermnostat, i hear the click from the unit starting inside the house. Fans start and air starts blowing inside the house, but the...

I would replace the contactor if you are getting 24 volts to the contactor and it isn't engaging therefore the magneto on the contactor is out and the contactor will need replacement. If you don't have 24 volts at the contactor then the transformer that sends the 24 volts is bad and will need replacing

My outside unit cotinues to run after the air handler cuts off. I have to trip the breaker to get it to turn off. What is the problem?

Contactor switch is possibly bad. The 24 volt side of the contactor has pitted and causes the contactor to remain energized until loss of power. I would replace the contactor first. Good luck on your repairs
