I have a Carrier AC model 38TKB030300 and I want to confirm the correct capacitor so I can replace it. Can you help? My central home unit shut off and the repairman said it was the capacitor that was bad.

Look at the old capacitor. The mircofarad rating should be printed on the side. If you can't read it then take the capacitor or the model # with you to a heating and air dealer the sells Carrier products. The repairman should have put one it for you.

I HAVE CARRIER AC MODEL NO. 38HQR18UP30-03, WHEN START THE AC ONLY THE INSIDE BLOWER IS STARTING OUTSIDE UNIT FAN AND COMPRESSOR DOESNT START.....


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

Carrier 38CKC front on unit


I had a similar issue, albeit a different brand of air condenser, and it turned out to be a relay capacitor that controlled the valve I suspect you are speaking of. However, I did have both the valve and capacitor replaced...just to be safe.

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.

Cooling problem with my ac.


The start capacitor may be the problem. Is your AC a central unit or window unit? Whats the model and make? If a window unit it could also be the thermostat is defective or too close to evaporator fins. Dirt on the condenser outside can cause the motor to heat up to the point it shuts down to cool the internal overload. Let me Know, Sea Breeze

Compressor not doing much


I am assuming that you are talking about a central ac unit. On a central air unit the outside fan must be running whenever the compressor is. If it's not the compressor will shut off from overheating withing minutes. First you need to shut off the unit for several hours and let it cool completely down. Then turn it on briefly to see if the compressor starts and see if the fan tries to start.( I am assuming the compressor starts and runs.) If the fan won't start try testing the capacitors. There are usually two one for the fan one for the compressor. Sometimes there will be one combo one. Mark the wires and remove the capacitor. Get it tested and if bad replace it. This will probably do the job. If not test for current at the fan motor. Also test to see if it turns freely. The motor may need to be replaced. This will run about $50. The capacitor should always be replaced when the motor is changed anyway.
