Re: Carrier 38CKC042 Air... Problem--Alarms for 60 sec....
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.

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.
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
If nothing is happening could be thermostat control wires cut? try using a jumper wire @ the furnace their will be a board with the letters R G W Y B try to jumper R to G the fan should come on. if not its in the controls of the furnace if fan comes on replace the thermostat. don't short the wires you will blow that small fuse.

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!
