Where does the alarm come from? Is it a beep noise or a siren noise? Please let us know. The reason I ask is because this is not something I have ever ran into before. Based on the model number you provided I have determined your unit to be a typical split system A/C. I do not see even an option to install any alarms for it.

Maybe it is wired in series with another alarming device like. Maybe it is not an alarm at all but a bad bearing in the motor causing an alarm sound.

Air conditioner model # 38ckc 42..350 not working, keeps tripping the breakers, had electrician check out and stated it was the fan or the compressor, i bought the house in 2009, was built in 2005, what do...


Hi, if that is a 2005 carrier condenser, it may still have a warranty on the compressor. You need to copy down model and serial #, call the local Carrier rep and ask. That is your right to do so. The fan is probably not in warranty, but it is definitely worth replacing if it is bad. I sold carrier for 15 years, and sold many with 10 year parts warranty. First thing you need to do if you haven't done so is check on your warranty! If you can explain what it is doing a little more in detail I could probably tell you exactly what is wrong. Hope this helps.

If the fan is not working and I still have heat


Most of thetime wether its gas or electric, there is a high temp safety
switch that should shut the unit down. Try putting the fan in manual
and see if the fan comes on.

My Carrier Home AC unit stopped blowing cold air today. I opened it up and cleaned everything and didn't notice anything out of place, any ideas?


This could be complicated to resolve over the internet but I'll give it a try. When you stated that it stoped blowing cold air, did it stop blowing air all together? Also is the outside unit rtunning?

Air on heat pump not cool outside unit humming but not kicking on


This could be an inoperative condenser fan.System will kick off on high pressure without proper air flow.The hum indicates voltage is present. Providing the fan motor is not locked up and will spin,Check your run capacitor which helps boost the motor voltage initially and will get it turning.If the cap is good,you may be faced with motor replacement....good luck

My carrier air con is only blowing cold air and i need the hot


It sound like the heating sequecer maybe have gone bad on the fan coil unit that you have. You need to call the maintenance personnel that does the work where you live or a service company out to repair the unit because since y0u only rent it is their responsibility to provide youp with heat and if by chance that you have a heat pumo unit then you definately want them to get on the roof to fix the problem. Remember to always change oyur filter inside when ever you get your electric bill because even though it's theeir unit it's your electric!

Most likely the transformer is shot on the air handler. To test this go to the thermostat and move the selector to fan on, if the fan blows it's not the transformer. Let me know. THX RepairUSA
