Question about Intertherm Air Conditioners

1 Answer

I have an intertherm compressor. The thing has recently taken to melting the wires at the compressor(red wire and now yellow wire). If the attach lug on the compressor is burned down to the nub, is there an affordable repair other than replacement of the compressor?

Replace the compressor and the wire harness that supplies the power to the compressor. Burnt off wires are due to bad conduction at the connections.

    Maybe a better answer to this asker would be a just plain NO.

AIR CONDITIONER WIRES, WHERE DOES THE RED, GREEN AND WHITE GO


Hello, you fried the control board or fuse in the inside unit. Usually the wires will attach to the side terminals on the contactor coil, this is part of the contactor is 24 volts, L1 and T1 are high voltage terminals.

Replacing the Contactor on my Rudd AC model uaka-037jaz. I got a Dayton 2utl4 contator for a replacement. I need to know which wires connect to what location. I hooked it up with the 2 thermostat wires...


On this unit wiring is very basic, line in wires to the two lugs on the bottom, common as refered to is always black wire which goes to the compressor and the fan motor, red to adjacent lug of the contactor which then one goes to the capacitor and one to the compressor and one to the outdoor fan motor. One wire usually yellow from capacitor to start winding of compressor marked on the capacitor as herm, and a brown wire to the fan motor from the capacitor. The side connectors as you know go to the 24v control coil. The reason as to the fuse going out could be due to loose connections in the disconnect box or a short in the wiring at the compressor, fan motor or capacitor, and worst case a shorted compressor internally. Recommend having the system checked with the proper equipment to include an ohm meter with uf reading ability.

I have a Ruud Air Conditioner and need to install a new capacitor, but I forgot how the wires were on the old one. Can you help me in tellilng me which wire goes where.


There should be 3 terminals on the capacitor marked "C" "F" and "H".
A wire from the high voltage contactor goes to the "C".
Another wire from "C" goes to the compressor.
These wires are usually red.
The "F" terminal has a wire going to the fan,usually a brown wire.
The "H" has a wire going to the compressor,usually yellow.
There should be a wiring diagram on the control box cover identifying the terminals,colors and number of wires.

Weed eater pulled out red & white wires from thermostat at a/c unit. Red went to yellow and white to ?. Unit is an intertherm unit, model unknown but schematic #703909b


if there is only two wires at the condenser it does not matter which side of the contactor you attach it to with little blue wire nuts.

The two wires will send the required 24VAC to pull in the contactor

Three wires melted.....


Possibly....usually a melted wire indicates a bad connection. Can you solder or crimp the wires to the compressor?

FURNACE OR AC WONT TURN ON


to see if it is the t-stat or the system you can unwire the entire t-stat and jump out the wires. never touch the blue to any other wire or you will blow the low voltage fuse on new board. if you jump red to yellow and your condensing unit cycles on the t-stat is wired wrong or wrong style. If not go check the yellow wire at cond. unit and see if power is even going to it.
