SOURCE: Carrier a/c tripping circuit breaker

I believe you are tripping the breaker because you are too close to the capacity of the breaker based upon the distance from the panel to the heat pump. If you are electrically skilled you could check this by measuring the distance and then looking at the standard to see. If this makes little sense to you, you may need to have an electrician check for u. Either way, good luck with it.

SOURCE: What is the blower model for the Carrier Unit

Hi, when you have a little play from side to side just shows very little bearing wear on the blower motor. In and Out play is normal. Spin the wheel to see if it is true. If the blower wheel has a lot of dirt build up on the blades it will cause it to be out of balance.If it is clean, but warped, take it to a motor repair shop along with the model and serial numbers. Call you're local wholesale a/c parts house with all of your info and they will look this up for you.The numbers that you have listed shows you have a 042 which is a 31/2 ton and 048 which is a 4 ton unit. More then likely, the wheel is out of balance and should be replaced, and they can look up the info you are requesting. Good Luck,

SOURCE: luxaire AC unit control works but the ac unit will not turn on

Sounds like it could be your transformer. See if you can locate it. It should be in the air handler indoors. Check the voltage going to the transformer and check the output of the transformer. You should have around 24 vac on the output of the transformer. If you don't have voltage on the output make sure you have it on the input (120vac). If you don't have it on the input you need to find out why. If you have it on the input but don't have an output then your transformer is likely gone bad. Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: Carrier 38tkb not working, but furnace is blowing

It is probably a capacitor problem. Check inside the outside unit. you will see a round cylinder with three groups of terminals on top. If the top of it is dome shaped it probably needs to be replaced. You can check it if you have a microfared tester. However if it is poofed out it probably is bad. If this is not the problem you will probably have to replace the fan motor.

Testimonial: "Thank you 'wise_jf', that was extremely helpful and solved the problem. Couldn't find actual replacement part locally, but got an universal at a local HVAC supply store that they setup for me with the same specification for less than $30. Everything is now working back to normal. You just saved me a ton, and helped keep my family (mainly my 1 and 7 yr olds), cool. I love this site. :o)"

It could be a number of things. Check breaker panel inside your house for flipped breakers. Check for bad fuses and check your capacitors. But only if you know how to use a multimeter and shut the power off first and understand how to de energize the capacitor. Otherwise call an electrician of hvac professional. Otherwise doing so can be deadly if your are unsure of electricity

The first thing I would check is to see the condensing coil is clean. Take a garden house and wash it thoroughly. If it is severely clogged you may need to remove the top and clean it with water pressure blowing from the inside out. This may stop the overheating.

Central air system blows cool air not cold and

your indoor unit is only circulating the air in the house. for your condensing unit. check your breaker in the electric panel. your contactor or your capacitor.

I have a Carrier 38ckc036350 Air conditioner. The inside blower turns on but the outside unit only makes a buzzing noise. I belive it is the capacitor, but I don't know where it is located any ideas?

Have you checked your circuit breaker? Capacitors are located in side the unit in the control box. TURN OFF THE POWER. you need a capacitor checker i assume you have one if not have a qualified service person check it out you'll be money ahead in most cases. good luck Tom

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.
