WARNING THIS A DANGEROUS REPAIR DON'T TRY IT UNLESS YOUR QUALIFIED TO WORK ON HIGH VOLTAGE!!
Tip: Never complete a 220v< circuit with your vascular system.
New Unit? wow wheres the installer? kk I'm assuming thats a dead end for some reason. Check for 220v at the compressor relay. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say your not getting the 220v power that you need to operate the unit. Do you have other 220v appliances such as a dryer or stove, if they are working properly that means that both legs of the 220v are making it from the pole to the house. Is the wiring in the breaker panel to the breaker that protects your condenser secure and tight. Are you getting 220v to that breaker? Is the wiring in the disconnect box by the condenser secure and tight? Are you getting 220v there? Is the connections to the compressor relay secure and tight are you getting 220v there. Is the compressor relay closing and are you getting 220v to the compressor? See how this works. Lol, Fun isn't it GL I hope this helped.

Hello, if the indoor blower runs nonstop a relay in the intergrated control board faulty and the whole board must be replaced, you can get tap the board to stop the blower but eventually the board will need to be replaced. If the contactor is clicking that means it is receivingpower from the indoor unit

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.

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.

AC running inside but outside unit not....keeps blowing breakers


Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. The compressor is locked up. What you could do is try a hard start capacitor on the unit which would probably get the compressor turning without blowing the breaker.

You must have a bad connection from either the thermostat or inside unit. Check the wire going from the outside unit to the inside unit. Look for any in-line fuses or the fuse on the circuit board.

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.

I have a colman ac unit and the outside unit will not come on. i hear it clicking but nothing happens


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.
