First check the breaker. If it has been tripped then you will surely need a good contractor.

If it has not tripped then double check the thermostat settings and batteries (if applicable). Make sure the fan is set to auto, The cool function has been selected and the temperature has been set low enough for the unit to come on.

If this still does not work then you will still need a technician. This is because there are many more possible failures all of which are relatively dangerous and technical. Good luck!

I have a Carrier Weathermaker model #38tdb060300 A/C system. How many tons is that? It is 11 yrs old, capacitor exploded and compressor is blown. Needing to replace.


Looks like a 5 ton unit. However, you might be better off finding a R-22 condensing unit to replace the entire outside unit. Reason being, if you just replace the compressor, you get a one year warranty. If you replace the whole outside unit, you get a 5 year warranty. You can replace the outside unit with any manufacturer, as long as it is the same tonnage and type (heat pump/air conditioner/single stage/ 2 stage ...).

Code 24 on carrier weathermaker 8000ts


Turn power off to unit. Open air handler and take a picture of the low voltage (tstat) wires and where they are landed. Remove all thermostat wires from control board. Then replace the 5 amp fuse that is likely on the board. Fuse likely looks like one for a car (blade style). Put a jumper (small piece of wire) from the R terminal to the G terminal and turn power back on to unit. This should bring on the indoor blower. Let me know how that goes!!

Weathermaker 9300ts wont turn on ac compressor. The insind blower is working The fuses at outside unit is good and yes power is there. the heater works. no flasing lights


How do you know power is at the outdoor unit? Did you check it with a meter? Check your breaker. If there's power at the outdoor unit, then shut the power and test your contacter. If the contacter has supply power then check the low voltage (24-28 volts) that operates the contacter, and if none check the low pressure cut-out,high pressure cut-out and make sure the thermostat is calling for cool. All ok so far, then test your capacitor. I forgot to mention to check for loose, broken, and disconnected wires.

I have a Carrier Weathermaker SX HVAC unit with a Honeywell thermostat. Even if the thermostat is turned "off", my fan keeps blowing!


Hello, usually this is a sign of a bad blower relay on the intergrated control board. The only option is to replace the control board.

Sounds like the contactor in the condensing unit is stuck. That is why it will not turn off when the thermostat is satisfied. If the inside air handler is not blowing and the outside condensing unit is running, then this will cause the inside coils to freeze up rather quickly.
The contactor is located in the outside condensing uni in the electrical compartment.
If it is sticking it will need to be replaced.

This problem is more than likely not the thermostat at all. The best way to see if the thermostat is at fault, is to pull the cover off and you should see a R(Red) terminal and a Y(Yellow) terminal, carefully jumper the two wires together and see if the outside unit comes on. If not, then the problem doesn't lay in the thermostat. You can also jumper the R and G terminals and see if the fan blower motor on the indoor unit comes on if you don't have another person to help. The thermostat is just a switch board for your controls on the inside unit and outside condensing unit. It is all 24v wiring coming from the unit and supplying the power to the correct terminals on the thermostat. Unfortunately, if your problem is not the thermostat, you can have a number of different problems going on. A few places to look.....

1. Breaker box to make sure nothing has tripped.
2. Make sure your indoor unit is still coming on.
3. Outside disconnect box. It will be by the condenser and should have fuses in it (some do not). To check, you will need to ohm the fuses. IMPORTANT: If fuses are blown, you could have a short in the condensing unit which should be checked first before changing fuses.

Hope this helps some and good luck!

Everytime my central air unit kicks on my circuit breaker trips. It didn't do this last year or even earlier this year


A circuit breaker 'tripping' everytime the AC unit kicks on 'most always' indicates a direct short (somewhere in the condensing unit), although it is possible that the breaker itself is bad - (but not likely).

Usually the cause of this 'short' will be - either the condenser motor in the condensing unit (outside unit) or the compressor - also in the condensing unit.

If you're mechanically inclined - and "very careful" around electricity - there is a fairly simple way to find out which component is causing the short.

Step 1 - Make sure the condensing unit (outside unit) is completely disconnected (electrically) , i.e. pull the fuses/turn off circuit breaker on outside unit and turn off thermostat.

Step 2 - disconnect the condenser motor (this is the outside fan motor). Note: when you disconnect the wires of the condenser motor "be sure" you mark/write their location, and wrap them in electric tape.

Step 3 - start the AC unit. If the breaker trips again you can pretty much rest assured it's the compressor that is shorted.

To prove it (without a doubt) - go to next step.

Step 4 - "be sure circuit breaker and thermostat is turned off" - and - 'reconnect' the condenser motor - and - then disconnect the compressor wires (mark wires and tape them).

Step 5 - Start AC.

If breaker doesn't trip - you know it's the compressor that is shorted.

If breaker 'does' trip again - then it's possible the breaker itself is bad (not likely) or there is a 'short' in the condensing unit's "wiring" somewhere (not likely).

My guess is that either the condenser motor or compressor is shorted.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck!

From the Isolator panel, how do I connect the condenser, and the blower?


MOST UNITS NOT HEAT PUMPS  WIRE UP WITH 2 WIRES TO CONDENSER RED WIRE AND WHITE . WHITE GOES TO COMMON C ON FURNACE AND RED TO Y TERMINAL OF FURNACE Y ALSO GOES TO Y ON TSTAT. BOTH YELLOW WIRES MUST MEET AT Y OF FURNACE.  WHITE FROM STAT TO W   GREEN FROM TSTAT TO G AT FURNACE IF YOU HAVE C ON TSTAT HOOK UP BROWN WIRE OR BLUE FROM COMMON TERMINAL WHERE YOU HOOKED UP CONDENSER WHITE WIRE AT FURNACE TO TSTAT , MOST THERMOSTATS DONT NEED C RUN FROM FURNACE. THE TWO WIRES GOING TO CONDENSER IS -  AND + TO ACTAVATE CONTACTOR IN OUTSIDE UNIT
