On my computer screen these two problems are not the same.

To "garys2003" Clicking you hear is the contactor closing in calling for cooling. If no power is being supplied to the outside unit high voltage the unit will not run. Check your circuit breaker or fuses in the outside power box. If the outside power box is of the non-fused disconnect, check that the disconnect is inserted properly.

To Trenina: Is your unit a self contained unit outside ducted to the inside as with a Mobile Home. If so your evaporator cooling coil may be frozen over stopping air movement, turn the cooling off and set your fan to on until it defrosts, then return to normal operation and leave the fan on during cooling.

If nothing comes on inside as with a central A/C system you may have a problem with the blower motor itself.

On my honeywell thermostat cool on keeps on flashing but ac dosent come on


On a Honeywell thermostat the flashing means that the system is in a delay to turn on the compressor. This is used to protect the compressor from coming on and off too often. The normal delay is about 5 minutes. After that the system should come on. If not there is s problem.

In order to help us help you we will need a little more information. What happens either at the inside unit or at the outside unit after the thermostat stops flashing "Cool"? Any fans come on? Do you hear a "KLUNK"? Any sparks? Please let us know so we can help.

The capacitor in the electrical compartment has probably gone out, it will be a dual run configuration and a large round device with three terminals with multiple connections. Slao check all electrical connections.

Ac unit clicks outside but nothing engages fan or compressor on unit furnace still runs for heat setting and fan still blows but ac will not engage just hear a clicking was running for three days this...


Have you check the outside breaker? If its ok then you got a problem in your electrical system inside the unit probably the contactor is not engaging this is where the 24 volts from the thermostat calls for the 240 volts to run the condenser fan and compressor. Be careful checking this out because of the high voltage.

its good to put them in, as it will keep dust from building up on the coils, thus reducing cooling.just buy some filter material at any hardware store, coarse, like a sponge, not fine paper stuff.

My air conditioner is not running on the outside but in the inside. temperature states 85 inside


If you turn down the thermostat to the air conditioner and the unit outside does not come on, you could have a few different issues. The usual suspect is a start capcitor. When you adjust your thermostat you should hear a click from the outside unit. If you hear a click but nothing happens, check the power disconnect out there by the unit. I recently had to replace mine because it finally just wore out. It can also be the contactor, the fan itself or the actual compressor.

No cool air


It is the capacitor write down the wiring colors to the capacitor and then disconnect the safety disconnect on side of house. And even turn off the breaker to the condensing unit. Okay now that no power is going to the unit take out the capacitor you wrote down what wires went where and ohm out the herm side go from the center post to herm side. Should be bad wont get a reading. Get new capacitor and re install. good luck ken

If not capacitor get back to me. And please leave good feed back

A/C quit running


This question is really to broad to answer. There are several things that could cause it to stop running. I think I would turn everything off, let it cool down for several hours and try it again. When you kick it back on, take note of what is running and what's not running. Inside fan, outside fan, compressor. If the outside unit will not run at all it could be as simple as a grasshopper caught in the contacts. If you hear the compressor running outside but no outside fan, The fan motor probably needs replaced. Please make sure that all power to the unit is TURNED OFF before removing cover plates on outside unit and before trying to remove insects from contact points. Check all wiring inside outside unit while it is open. Also check capacitors for swelling or leaking. If you don't know how to turn all the power off or open the outside unit, you need to call a professional AC technician. Hope this helps. kstfas
