Question about Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner
Is the fan in the outdoor unit coming on? If it is, that narrows the problem to just the compressor or capacitor. If neither is running, check the disconnect or circuit breaker or fuses that are located close to the outside unit. If the unit has power, remove the cover where the power goes into the outside unit, set the thermostat to make the unit come on and see if the contactor is pulled in. If it is, use a meter to check for power on the load side of the contactor. If the fan is running, check the capacitor for the compressor. Most units use one that works both the fan and the compressor. If the capacitor looks swollen then it is bad, otherwise use a multimeter with the capacitor check function to test it. If the capacitor is good, check the compressor motor windings with the multimeter on the resistance function. Let me know what you find and I can give you more advice if this doesn't get you going.
