    you're right, it was the capacitor. Just wish you could've responded a couple of days sooner. Thanks

Poke the fan blade with a stick to see if the bearings are seized up. If it turns easily, you have an electrical problem, like a bad capacitor.

Outside unit will only run for a short amount of time with A/C before the fan stops turning and starts humming, squealing/screeching and the top of the outside unit gets hot.


The bearings are bad in the motor and after the fan runs enough it eventually gets hot, making the bearing screech and the fan locks up. Need to replace motor again. See if it has a warranty. The reason it gets hot is because the fan is what removes the heat from the coil and if the fan isn't running there is nothing to cool it off so to speak.

Carrier 38tkb not working, but furnace is blowing


It is probably a capacitor problem. Check inside the outside unit. you will see a round cylinder with three groups of terminals on top. If the top of it is dome shaped it probably needs to be replaced. You can check it if you have a microfared tester. However if it is poofed out it probably is bad. If this is not the problem you will probably have to replace the fan motor.

My unit is running but not blowing cool air. I went outside and the condenor fan was not moving. Took a stick and shoved a blade and the fan started moving but the air is still not cool inside. I did...


Sometimes on new units it is common for the fan to not start until you give it a push. Did you happen to hear if the compressor was operating? If the unit was froze-up the Insulated Suction line would also be iced over as well. If it wasn`t it is more likely that either the compressor was not operating or it shutoff due to
high discharge pressure and can only be reset on its
own or cooling the compressor off with cold water.

A/c outside not working


The buzzing noise is your contactor drawing in from your thermostat. The fan part of your unit is on a different circuit from your outside A\C unit. Your thermostat is the conductor of the orchestra tying ths units together. It may well be that your A\C circuit breaker has tripped, if it has there is a reason for it's tripping. Resetting the breaker by turning it off then on may get your unit running, but a technician needs to ascertain why it tripped. Or it could be a bad contact switch inside the outside unit not letting enough electricity through the switch. More than likely the first issue. Good Luck

Goodman air conditioner will not turn on outside


When ever you hear a buzzing like you are hearing means one thing one of the fuses on the outside disconnect box is bad. Only getting 1/2 the power. Find the bad fuse and get the same size and will be good to go. ken

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
