C : connect here wire which one is coming from main supply/thermostat /overload protectors

R :connect here wire which one is coming from capacitor ( C terminal).

S : connect here wire which one coming from H terminal of capacitor if capaciter/if capacitor is no mark then one wire i mean no require from H OR C terminal .

LG ac unit red light on pcb flashing 3 times and unit shutting off


This is going to most likely be your power supply circuit board in the unit. If you are handy you can take this apart, remove the board{check the fuse on the board first), get the part number and then do an internet search for the replacement part. I would check Allied Electronics first for this.

I have a Quick Cool (59516.501) which just started tripping the 20 A circuit breaker. I replaced the circuit breaker. Unit still trips the circuit breaker.


you will need to access the unit and look for burnt/shorted wires on/at compressor. if not then the compressor is locked down/shorted and will need replaced Tim

I have a Amana PTAC model PTC123A50AC never had any problems until this a.m. walked into office were installed no heat. Breaker tripped, reset breaker, nothing. Checked outlet, getting power. Any idea's?


To all friends! Whenever you find breaker tripped or fuse blown, it's an indication some device/s are in problem.
To get tripped breaker:
1. Condenser too dusty- clean it.2. Fan motor or compressor grounded-Replace. 3. Compressor high amps due to capacitor weak-replace capacitor. 4. Burnt wire-rectify. 5.Short circuit-rectify.

The panel turns on but the motor does not turn on. The electronic panel is on but the ac has a humming sound without the motor or the compressor turning on.


Hi, This being 18,000 BTU is a 240 volt unit. The electronic in it work at 120 volts. I believe you have only 1/2 the electrical current going to it. Thus the Hum. CHECK YOUR FUSES OR CIRCUIT BREAKER!
A 240 volt circuit breaker has two sides or switches with a bridge between them. One of them may be tripped. Shut off the breaker wait a few seconds then turn it on so that the it engages all the way. It if clicks or pushes your fingers back and prevents you from engaging it, there is a problem likely with the compressor/fan or it's wiring, and it is drawing too much current and requires repair or replacement.

Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

My EC12 will not start. No sound, when trying to turn fan in rear it feels completely froozen solid.


hi there, in that case totally busted,there are motor protection should be checked if this are open. 1.check the source of current on circuit breaker using multi tester.if there is source or voltage supply.if nothing voltage supply reset breaker. 2.if current is available on circuit breaker check the overload protection relay if there is reset over load protection.try to power on. 3.check the pressure switch if open,it always normally close meaning the contact-or is closed if busted,replace pressure switch. 4.if still not work pull out motor and check this to electric motor service center. 5.check also the mechanical parts by cracking flywheel pulley of the compressor.if no rotation on flywheel pulley have check on this.if no motion it affects the motor protection. fix my rate and have a nice day thanks a lot.

Frig keeps overloading circuit breaker, just repaced relay


I think the compressor has a problem with its internal running coil , or it's grounded.To check it you can disconect the power to the compressor and then turn on the breaker , and if doesn't tripped the breaker ,you know the compressor is bad.

My goldstar turns on and hums, but no cold air. then it blows a circuit breaker


First you should check the power for short circuit, second you have to check the fan motor if it is burnt or not,third check whether the compressor is burnt or not.These are the three reasons.If the powering is short circuited change the cables from the mccb.If the fan motor is burned out replace the fan motor or rewind the fan motor.If the compressor is burnt out replace the compressor, evacuate the refrigeration system and charge the refrigerant.

LG S36AHP-UD7 Split Air Con. won't turn on.


Generally when an ac trips the main breaker and the breaker its self isn't bad, the compressor is going bad or is bad. To check you will need to do an ohms test on the compressor. If you get a reading of less than infinite, then the compressor is bad. You will need to test every lead going to the compressor which is usually 3 unless you have a crank house heater installed but they are not typical on a small unit. If the compressor has gone bad it is possible the it took the board out as well.

Frigidaire 12000 BTU A/C window unit


The reason that it's doing that is b/c at first its running only with the fan butwhen the compressor clicks on it trips the breaker if you have other items running off that circuit "unplug them" [even turned off items can still consume some power]. Then try to running only the ac unit see if it works a 12000btu takes a lot to run, if this doesn't work the ac may be to much for your circuit to handle and a smaller unit may be needed.
