Question about Honeywell Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

We purchased our home two weeks ago and have a problem with the central AC. It will not turn on. When we did get it to turn on it ran for 15 seconds and caused the circuit breaker to turn off. Is there a quick solution or do I need to have someone come in and repair it? This is a Honeywell heating and cooling unit. We changed the batteries in the wall control panel and that did not help. We live in West Milford. What should we do? Thanks, Mary

It sounds like the compressor is pulling high amps causing the tripped breaker. It could be caused by a weak compressor. This can sometimes be handled with a super start capacitor. This can reduce the amount of start up amperage. I suggest that a licensed technician do this for you because it is relatively dangerous and technical. The worst case scenario is that the compressor itself is bad and must be changed. This can be a very expensive repair.

My Maytag model number MEY18F7E will turn on for about 10 seconds then quit and trip the breaker. It just started doing this about a week ago. Has been working fine since I purchased the home several years...


Sounds like you have a bad compressor, something is either shorted out, or drawing too much power causing your breaker to trip.

Is this a window unit, or a ductless unit?

There is ice forming on the evaporator coils. This is either from a low freon charge or a leak in the seals or windows and doors. Could also be that the drains are not working and water is building up and freezing
