Carrier 48NMX042 IFM wont stop, condenser fan motor and compressor wont run

Ok first thing is it sounds like a wiring problem. So first step is to make sure the thermostat is properly connected. Which... the main thing here is there needs to be 24v dc power coming from your control board (transformer) going to the thermostat..generally that is the red wire. All the thermostat does is connect that "red" wire (power) to one of the other wires to complete a circuit. So make sure you have 24 volts... (generally about .5amps) . if you have power than switch thermostat to fan only should energize the green wire only. then switch to ac and move temp low enough that the ac should turn on and that should energize the yellow wire. for sure one of those wires is incorrect now or the fan wouldn't be on OR THE THERMOSTAT IS NOT CONNECTING THEM AND IT IS BAD. Now about the compressor and fan.... those same wires run out to the compressor unit... ok the yellow for ac.. greeen does not go to compressor unit that is for fan only (vent).. red carries the same 24 volts... one difference here is that most carrier units only have the one you run the red wire is the +pos 24 volt..and then a "common " wire is needed which is the Ground or neg... that wire on a carrier is brown usually but could be different depending installer. The orange wire goes to the pump reversing valve it is always energized when on ac mode...when heater is on in the winter it is heat pump and is not energized so just connect the orange and yellow together... tell me more specifics if this doesn't help and i'm sure I can help you... thanks Chuck

Need instructions for installing- model 0192773 instructions # 3 ses connect red timer wire to wire from fixture using wire connector What is the wire from the fixture, is it postive or negative? no...

Open following link for large print instructions, and specific wiring step.
Read the additional help for step by step action.

The 'wire from fixture' means the wire that goes to the light.
One of the two wires that previously connected to switch is 'wire from fixture.'

The wire that goes to light will not show any power when it is disconnected from switch, and will not test positive or negative.

Single phase household electricity does not test positive or negative.
Household electricity is AC current which means the electricity is an oscillating wave that reverses direction either 50 or 60 times per second, depending on which country you reside.

For example each electrical appliance, like TV or treadmill, has small rating sticker, and in US, the rating sticker will show 60Hz. This is 60 cycles per second. A 60Hz appliance will not work in India or New Zealand or other countries that have 50Hz electricity.

Batteries are DC current and will test positive or negative.
Household electricity is AC current and does not test positive or negative.

Carrier Infinity Control Thermostat SYSTXCCUID01-B

Your old stat is wired for a traditional thermostat and not a communication stat like the new infinity you have. There is a module plug on the furnace board that will need to be connected to the new thermostat for it to work. The wires that are wired now are from a terminal strip inside the furnace. Please contact your local Carrier dealer. They may be able to get that harness for you
