Question about Carrier YCB213D Air Conditioner

Open Question

My Carrier 21000 BTU air conditioner (model YCB213E built in 1996) has always worked perfectly until yesterday. When I pushed the red button to turn it on - nothing happened. The digital screen shows the letters PF but not the words that usually appear. Since I cannot find the owners manual, I am currently clueless. I would like to be able to fix it myself if possible since it weighs a ton and would be a real pain to remove and take to a repair shop. Any advice at all on where to start would be greatly appreciated! Thanks - Jim

SOURCE: Carrier air handler tonnage?

That is a fairly large difference. It is usually ok to have the inside evap. coil and blower up to 1 ton larger than the outside condenser. That will make the unit slightly more efficient as well as less likely to freeze up on low airflow situations. It is not recommended to install a new condenser on an old evap coil. There has been a lot of changes to the design of the coils in the last little while. For example a 10 year old 2 ton coil may only have 3 cubic feet of volume but a new 2 ton coil may have 4 cubit feet of volume.

There are many factors that may have infulenced the decision on what size condenser to install. Many of which can only be done by visiting the home and doing alot of work, checking the duct sizing bioth supply and return, inspecting the insulation and windows of the home etc. etc. Most of the time that never gets done. You can blame the contractor for not doing a complete check, but at the same time you can blame the customer because many contractors that are that good loose the job to a cheaper bid that did not no any of the research. It is a catch 22 for everyone involved.

There is ALOT more to sizing equipment that many people think, sadly that also includes many HVAC contractors. Way too many people use "rule of thumbs" or flat out "guess".

Sorry for the rant but your queston can only be answered by a good well educated HVAC contractor visiting your home. That type of a contractor is getting hard to find these days in such a price competetive world.

SOURCE: Carrier air conditioner will not turn on.

It could be the capacitor, or the relay switch on the main unit. Also, if you have had anyone doing yard work, they could have cut your thermostat wires by accident.

Have a carrier zonemaster air conditioner and no operating instructions can you help


At the risk of seeming smart, try a few knobs buttons or pad pushes. I suspect it has enough safety built in the avoid an unsafe or damage the unit. But see if you try these things maybe you can tell us what it doesn't do.
