The Cspaxi series also have a pressure sensor which senses the pressure inside the heating tank. This sensor connects to the coil on the contactor, insufficiant pressure in the tank will cause a delay in the contactor activating. It sounds like your problem can be caused by insufficiant water flow from the pump, a clogged or pinched water line to the heater, or a faulty pressure sensor.

There is a control voltage transformer that makes 24 volts AC to operate the relays and motor contactors. The line fuses may be blown too. Check them both.

10 seer weatherking contactor switch stuck.have been using astick lol but serious had to wedge stick all summer to push in switch .now all of a suddon it stuck. asking why i ha to push in switch and why it...

The contactor is supposed to turn the condensing unit on when everything else is right and the thermostat calls for cooling. There are various sensors that can keep the contactor from activating. If you are low on freon, if the inside coil is iced over, if the freon pressure is too high or alternatively too low, if there is no air flow to the inside coils and when the thermostat says it is cool enough, the contactor will kick the unit off. The contactor works off of low voltage signals sent from various sensors. When all sensors say ok the contactor pulls in the 220 volts. Because you are pushing the button in manually, you are over-riding all the sensors. It is something you are not supposed to do. To determine the exact cause, you would need to follow the wiring diagram to each sensor to see which one is showing a fault. Manually holding the contactor in can cause severe damage to your unit, if it hasn't already done so. As to why it is stuck on, there is an electromagnetic coil that pulls the main contact points together. The contacts may have overheated and welded together, or the magnetic coil may have burned out and swelled up enough to prevent the rod mechanism to back out of the coil. I would strongly suggest you have a good AC technician trace out your system to find the fault.

Thermostat starts but outside unit will not kick on

Check the disconnect or circuit breaker for the outside unit. Use a voltmeter to make sure you have power on the Line side of the contactor. Set the thermostat to make the air come on check the contactor to make sure it is pulled in. When the contactor is pulled in check the load side of the contactor for power. If the contactor doesn't pull in, go to the thermostat and install a jumper between R and Y to make sure it isn't a thermostat problem. Also make sure you have power to the circuit board. Next you can check the capacitor. If it looks swollen, it's bad. Let me know what you find if this doesn't get it going and I can give you some more suggestions.

Do bryant condensing units have a reset button? We can't get the unit to kick on. All power is correct and fan starts inside, but can't get condensing unit to kick on.

Most Bryant units do not have a reset button but could have a low pressure or high pressure switch for a safety to protect the compressor. Verify power from the thermostat to the contactor by following the thermostat wires all the way to contactor inside of electrical compartment... TURN POWER OFF BEFORE OPENING.... If power is to contactor and contactor is pulled in then you would need to look at the capacitor of which is a canister about 6 inshes tall with wire terminals on top.. this part should be flat on the top and if it is rounded then thats your problem.. if not then contact a local company to troubleshoot and make necessary repairs.

Contactor not pulling in on 24 volts after changing out all parts: defrost board, contactor, cap, fan relay, transformer and heat sequence

Set the thermostat so that the a/c should be on. Make sure you have 24vac at the contactor. If you don't recheck your wiring. Also you can go to the thermostat and install a jumper between R and Y. The contactor should pull in. If it does, your thermostat may be the problem. Let me know what you find so I can offer more advice.

Turned unit on for first time, it will not kick on

does the indoor fan blow? If it does you are getting the 24 volts from the thermostat to the ouside contactor need to check your contactor in the oustide unit this is what kicks on the compressor it take the 24 volts and goes to 230 volts to run the compressor and condensor fan. check your schematic for the placement of the contactor.

I am installing a Honeywell T841 onto existing RGYW wiring. The fan kicks on, but I notice the air conditioner is not running. Were one or more of these supposed to go on the W2 or B terminals? Thanks!

Need to have more numbers in model number to be sure There's about 30 T841 t'stats and some are1, 2, and 3 stage heat pump and some 1, 2, and 3stage AC.
If you have
R to transformer
G to fan relay
Y to contactor in outdoor unit
W to Gas valve
You have the thermostat wired right.
Depending on the T'stat B could be the common side of the transformer or 2nd stage heat.
W2 terminal are for 2nd stage heat
You need to put the thermostat on cool and lower the setting to bring on the cooling. Then go outside and see if you have power to the outdoor unit and 24 volts to the contactor coil.

Ac not turning on

In changing the filter you may have bumped the thermostat wires. Look on the circuit board and see if the wires to the outdoor unit came loose. The terminals are "Y" and "C" and the wires will probably be yellow and either blue, black or brown.

Goodman cetral air system brand new contactor hums but it will not switch on

That's what contactors are supposed to do, but they are supposed to turn the air conditioner on because the thermostat activates them, not your finger. Be very careful about sticking your finger in there.
