SOURCE: my home a/c will not start. i have the therm set

The contactor needs 2 power sources. 22ov sitting there waiting, and then 24v to close it. The 24v is referred tcoil wires. The 24 comes from the thermostat to the air handler inside, then leapfrogs outdoors to the condenser. Once in thecondenser it can run through low pressure switch also. The goal is to see where the 24v stops. Remove the 2strand wire from the unit (NOT the 220v) and see if 24v there. If not go back towards furnace...if it is there move on into the unit....if 24v is at contactor coil and it is not closed, then the contactor itself is bad.

SOURCE: Dear Sir, I have a 240

today is july 15, 2011. i just came across this problem today. i have a connecticut electric spa disconnect panel and the part fh-20j-4 went bad too. it was about 3 years old. the spring loaded breaker would not retract automatically like it is supposed to do. i had been doing work in my home which required me to shut off the main power a few times. the last time i shut it off, my spa didn't come back on once power was restored. i didn't find out until later that evening when i wanted to get in my tub. i checked it out the next morning cause i've had problems with the panel resetting a few times before after a power ottage. this time it would only work if i held in the spring loaded breaker. i called connecticut electric at 1-1866-822-0453 and told them about the problem and gave them the part number. the person took my contact information and told me she would send me the part free of charge. try calling them. the number listed above is to their indiana office. hope this helps.

Customer tried to install digital t-stat on heat pump, but t-stat wasn't for heat pump. Tripped breaker on outside unit. Now original t-stat won't pull in contactor. Unit works when manually push in...


Make sure the stats are wired correctly. Then check for voltage at the contactor and the continuity of the contactor coil itself. One of those will be the problem

The central air turns on, but does not cool. The fan outside of the house is not moving. Is there a switch I need to use to turn the outside fan on?


There should be an electrical box next to your exterior unit. Open it up and there should be a pull handle on an electrical bridge. Usually when it is turned one way it will make an electrical connection and if it is rotated 180 degrees and plugged in it won't make an electrical connection.

Contactor does not activate on 1 ton 208 V 1PH residential Heat Pump condenser. It cools and heats when manually pushed in. A green flash comes from the contactor when pushed in a and released


Green flash is the sparking, which is common which elderly contactors. It should likely be replaced. Test for the problem by checking for continuity (ohms) on the solenoid coil of the contactor. (The two small wires on the side.) Test also if you get 24v AC on those two wires when the A/C is turned on. If you have no 24v, it's a thermostat or wire problem. If no continuity, replace the contactor. (Always pull the wires off the contacts when checking the contacts for continuity.)

I have goodman 13 seer/ I have power going into the unit and it will not pull in the contact and when i push in the contact the fan will run but not blow in the house and both cooper pipes on the outside...


check power on the 24 volt coil of the contact pushing in the contactor will not make youre blower in the house run only start the compressor and condensing fan on the outside unit. if u do not have 24 volts on the coil of the contactor that could mean a few things high or low pressure switch is open. which this sounds like the problem because you stated the unit starts but both (copper) pipes stay warm this may be cause by no freon in the system. see normally if you push that contactor in when the indoor fan not running u will get really cold big pipe thats called the suction line. check if you have voltage on the coil when unit is calling for cooling if not look at the schematic and ohm the pressure switces if there are any

Compressor on central unit wont kick on


you need to use a meter to ensure that you are getting control voltage from the xfrmr. Also check it at the coil side of the contactor if you feel comfortable doing this but be careful of the line voltage side. If you are getting power on the coil side of the contactor usually a 24v signal from the tstat from the area labeled y and the contactor is not pulling in most likely you will need to replace the contactor. If the contactor is pulling in verify the amp draw on the compressor with the tag.
