Question about Carrier Heating & Cooling
Hi, if this unit is tripping the breaker when it tries to start, you have a part such as the compressor or a fan motor that is shorted. I would say it is the compressor as it draws more amp's then the other parts and if it has a locked rotor, it can draw as much as 55 to 70 amps depending on the size of the compressor. If you are inclined to check this out your self, it is a process of elimination. You will need to leave the breaker tripped off and disconnect the 3- leads from the compressor and tape the ends up. Now, hit the breaker. If it holds, you will know that the compressor is the faulty part. I bet this is as far as you will need to go. Depending on the condition and age of the unit, you will need to get estimates for a compressor change out or a new condenser. If the compressor is disconnected and the breaker still trips, go to each motor, the blower, and condenser motor and do one at a time to see which one is faulty if the breaker holds when disconnecting.
Please write down how the wires go back and don't forget to rate me on this as I know you will be kind. I will check in on you and keep all of your problems on file to go back to if need be. Keep me posted on what you find.
