Question about Carrier 38BRC060 Air Conditioner
We have a carrier 38brc060 and the outside compressor isn't doing much. The fan inside does notspin. We hear like it it trying to do something but it is not. Is this something that we can do on our own?
Hi. I have 38brc060 outdoor and air handler, today the compressor gave out according to the technician and I need to replace it. How much is a compressor for my carrier system? Its a 2 ton unit that was installed in 2000. I am also trying to figure out if there is a warranty for this...
Thanks in advance...

I am assuming that you are talking about a central ac unit. On a central air unit the outside fan must be running whenever the compressor is. If it's not the compressor will shut off from overheating withing minutes. First you need to shut off the unit for several hours and let it cool completely down. Then turn it on briefly to see if the compressor starts and see if the fan tries to start.( I am assuming the compressor starts and runs.) If the fan won't start try testing the capacitors. There are usually two one for the fan one for the compressor. Sometimes there will be one combo one. Mark the wires and remove the capacitor. Get it tested and if bad replace it. This will probably do the job. If not test for current at the fan motor. Also test to see if it turns freely. The motor may need to be replaced. This will run about $50. The capacitor should always be replaced when the motor is changed anyway.
