Hi!!
Check starting capacitor and power to compressor. File the contactor's contacts, if noise don't go away, replace contactor.
GOOD LUCK!!

When my RV is plugged in, is it normal for the air conditioner to hum?


while in cooling mode, with refrigerant compressor running, yes. An inspection of the controls with special attention to the compressor magnetic contactor, this contactor may be extra noisy and can be replaced in attempt to quiet the air conditioner down.

How do I wire my puma 220v sigle phase air compressor with s-p40t motor starter?


You contactor /motor starter has connection for up to three phase /L1 thru L3. You will be only using L1 and L2 connectors for power-in/ line and using meter find cross connector for connecting load / motor (usually white and black or red from the motor). The contactor has a push button to test your work (use meter to test before actually wiring up motor and line). The contactor is controlled by separate switch (usually pressure switch on the compressor) using proper voltage as required by magnetic switch of s-p40t. Good luck

Check the capacitor and contactor. You may have wires burnt at the compressor terminal from corrosion.

Ruud compressor relay not working a/c


Hello,im assumimg you are referring to the contactor coil on the oudoor unit. First you must verify if the coil is receiving 24 volts from the thermostat at the coil terminals, if not there is a problem with the low voltage circuit, possibly a a open thermostat wire or a fuse blown on the indoor control board. If ther is 24 volts at the contactor coil and it does not engages then the contactor coil must be replaced

Buttons stopped working


Your electronic control has problem the relay and magnetic contactor won't work. Better check your control panel first switches has no contact or your power supply for your electronic control has no power or check the fuse. Try to press the magnetic contactor in few seconds and see if the compressor and fan works. If doesn't work your have power on your electric wiring and and power.

The outdoor unit doesnt work for ac panasonic cs c9mkp,i have following the instruction on manual book.


After switching the indoor unit to cool, the indoor fan starts and the light flashes, lower the temperature setting to 16 degree centigrade. When the light stops flashing the outdoor fan and the compressor start, if not check the wiring connection going to the compressor contactor. Check if there is power supplying the holding coil of the contactor. If the contactor works, check the power on both contact points by using a volt meter. If the outdoor fan only works, you need to check line working pressure. If the standing pressure is low, compressor will not start.

My model ACD2234HRQ is approx 90 days out of


you need to replace the rtc overload contactor located on the compressor body,there is also a run capacitor on the contactor,replace this along with the rtc contactor,this is your problem,the contactor and overload give the compressor starting power and run power to the windings,if the capacitor is bad it doesnt have enough torque to overcome the power to turn the compressor initially

My cooler doesnt get cold at all.can the refrigerant stuff be replaced or charged barring it doesnt have a hole in line


it most likely isn't the refrigerant leak problem,if the unit sounds like its running but not cooling the rtc contactor assembly on the compressor body is defective,you need to access the compressor from the rear of the unit,unplug the contactor and get a new contactor and this will solve your problem,units these days do not normally lose their refrigerant charge

A/C outside unit will not run. Inside works, breakers are on and did not trip. No noise coming from outside unit, except for low buz when 1st turned on. After 10 seconds, nothing. Goodman # CPLJ36 - 1B. No...


sounds like your contactor/relay on compressor defective, by the way it sounds the buzz is from the magnetic coil on the contactor but its not pulling the contacts in to start the compressor
