Question about Carrier Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Outside unit clicks but doesn't come immediately, it has to do this several times before it comes on, when the inside fan comes on. I thought it was a thermostat issue I replaced the thermostat but it didn't resolve the problem.

What is wrong when weather king air conditioning not coming on?


If you turn the unit to heat and say set the temp to 85 and the furnace fires up but the blower doesnt turn on after a minute or 3, 3 things to check. One is the fan control switch in the plenum. It says the plenum is hot and ok to turn on the blower. If the switch is ok, then check the blower and the capacitor. Set unit to AC and set temp to meat locker. Outside compressor and fan should come on immediately. If not
have a friend turn it on from inside while you listen outside. If you here a click, the contactor is good. If it is, check to see if the 230 Volts circuit breaker (inside in the panel) has not tripped. If thats good check the disconnect next to the outside unit. Then check for 240 AC or so on the far side of the contactor. If thats good, check the split capacitor with the power off. If all the above is good, and the fan doesnt come on, replace the motor in the outside fan. If the fan does come on and the compressor does not, see if there is a protection switch that needs to be reset. And if you dont understand the above, call a reputable dealer (ask your neighbors who they trust)

Roland RD-700GX keyboard, humidity affects the pitch drastically. Is there possibly a seal that needs to be replaced?


Have you thought about installing a piano humidifier? Just an idea. Also do you have a wiring diagram for you keyboard? Usually there is one inside the unit. Check & see if the unit doesn't already have a humidifier which is defective. You would need a voltage meter or a continuity tester to check if it is good. If you need help reading the diagram post it & we can help you read it. Good luck. sl

Goodman air handlers (inside unit) fan have a delay timer that turn on the fan ,sometimes up to 3 minutes after the outside unit is on,this makes the a/c more efficiency.

AC wont kick on....


The first thing to check is your breaker box. There should be one double breaker for the air handler unit, that's the inside unit, and one double breaker for the compressor, that's the outside unit. Check both breakers. If you're not sure if they've be thrown, click them toward the outside of the breaker box (off position) and then click them toward the inside of the breaker box (on position). If the breakers are on and you still are not getting any A/C take a look at your compressor, (outside unit). If the fan is running at least you're getting power. However, your compressor down inside the unit may not be getting power or it may need to be replaced. The compressor has a start-up cap. If this cap goes bad or the wires from this cap fry or corrode away, this will also keep the compressor from starting but the fan will still run. If the fan is not running it could be caused by a faulty relay inside the compressor cabinet. This relay is supposed to open and close based on a low voltage signal from the thermostat. I believe it's roughly 24 volts. This relay switches on and off the 240 volts for the compressor and the compressor fan. Often this relay goes bad or the wires leading up to it fry. If you?re going to work on the unit yourself make sure all power is shut off. There should be a shutoff switch on the outside wall near the compressor. I?d also shut the breakers off.

Heat Pump hums, clicks and does not come on sometimes


yes the start capasitor starts the fan motor and the contactor pulls together when the t-stat tells it to start and it has a spring in it that gets week , some brands of units have a delay in the outside units board to stop it from starting at the exact same time as the airhandler

A/C quit running


This question is really to broad to answer. There are several things that could cause it to stop running. I think I would turn everything off, let it cool down for several hours and try it again. When you kick it back on, take note of what is running and what's not running. Inside fan, outside fan, compressor. If the outside unit will not run at all it could be as simple as a grasshopper caught in the contacts. If you hear the compressor running outside but no outside fan, The fan motor probably needs replaced. Please make sure that all power to the unit is TURNED OFF before removing cover plates on outside unit and before trying to remove insects from contact points. Check all wiring inside outside unit while it is open. Also check capacitors for swelling or leaking. If you don't know how to turn all the power off or open the outside unit, you need to call a professional AC technician. Hope this helps. kstfas
