You must make sure that there is power to both the inside unit and outside unit. Is the room air blower blowing? If not you have either a plugged filter, iced up coil, the access door is not quite closed or there is no power to the unit. Is the outside unit fan turning? If not, you either have no call from the thermostat, the fan is broken or the unit has no power to it. I would turn off the breaker to the inside unit and switch the breaker near the outside unit to off and let them sit idle for 5 minutes. Switch both breakers back on and chect to see if the outside unit turns on. Then check the indoor unit and see if this starts blowing. Let us know what you find.

First time using my air conditioner after winter. my "inside" fan will run but the outside unit is not starting. My weather king is approx 9 years old


Check fuses and circuit breakers to the outdoor unit. Fuses should be right next to the unit in a box on the side of the house. Easiest thing to do is replace them both. Circuit breakers are in you circuit breaker box. There will be two of them, probably 30 or 40 amp maybe 50 amp if a big house. Trip breakers all the way back and then all the way forward. Hope this works.

The unit set the breaker off in my house, i reset the breaker but the unit will not come on...the breaker box has been replaced,the capassitor has been replaced, the brown item with the red, yellow, purple...


Oull the fuses out of the disconnect by the condensing unit. Then, reset the breaker. Does the breaker stay on? If so, your incoming power to the unit is OK. If it trips, you have a short somewhere. If your OK with power from the breaker to the unit, you have a direct short somewhere at your unit. At that point, it could be a wire has rubbed and is arcing to ground or compressor might have fried the windings. If your in the ladder group, you'll need to call and HVAC tech to troubleshoot your problem.

I've just moved into a home with an existing Armstrong Concept 10 A/C unit that's at least 15 years old. When I left for a 2-week vacation, the unit was working great. I set the thermostat to 77 to save...


Hello 93 The compressor caused the breaker to trip.A weak capasitor or burnt wire is a common cause.It sounds like the compressor is NOT on even though the fan is.It may need a new wire or maybe a HARD START kit to help restore operation.Call for help.HS kits are not expensive.NO damage results from leaving it on, the problem would have happened anyway even if you went on vacation or not.The curcit breaker stopped it.Its worth fixing.

Inline circuit breaker trips around 8 pm each evening - no other electric appliance is on that circuit.


mcdevito75 here, You could be in an area where the electric load is heavy and itdoesn"t have to be heavy in your home, your utility could be a bit overloaded, you can try to claen your filter, and or raise the temp setting on your unit to no cooler than 65 degrees. Contact your electric about their output of electricity.

Breaker trips on condenser unit on heat pump after several hours of operation


Hi, check amps on unit, and make sure breaker matches, check unit voltage tag, it will tell you what size breaker you need, or may be breaker is loosing resistance, replace breaker, if problem continues, a/c maybe over working because of high temp, temp. affect amperages, and that would be normal, if it trips after few hrs. also check a/c for lack of freon, sometimes, they need a tap up of refrigerant, not enough freon and they would run longer, get hotter and eventual trips. breaker doing his job. good luck

Rv electrical question


By the main breaker in the camper, do you mean the main 24 or 12 volt breaker, or the incoming 120vac breaker? Is it tripping the breaker in the camper, or the house? If it is tripping the breaker inside, i would look for maybe water damage, rusty components, maybe have an electrician come look at it, not worth going out away from home, and that problem ruining your vacation! Does this unit have a generator set? Try disconnecting the generator too. Hope that helps!

A/c doesn't remove moisture in the room? even when exchanger is set on open or closed--no moisture in collection tray either model #agj3211daxt2    G.E.


An A/C unit is a dehumidifyer BUT Unit are rated in Pints of water, a Unit in Florida might need a de humiditiyer connected to it, the air is heavy with humidity. Another reason is that the Unit is under sized or not allowed to run long enough (?) Infor. on what State you live in would help and the size of the apt. or house the unit is covering. The best T / H would be 70* and 55 H and that would be on the cool side for most people , avg temps in a house would be 74* 65%, body temps are 98.6 most A/C unit are rated at 90* amp temp ( outside ) if the condenser is dirty this will cut the performance on a hot day over 85* Keep unit clean -replace filter (s) . If your getting a 15 degree reading between outside and inside your doing good the best would be 20 degrees ( depending on heat load) windows, and sun. Actic fans remove 30% of the heat -it will drop the temp from 120 to about 85, this can save you a lot of money in A/C bills and help cool the house in warm day when you don't need the A/C.

I set the thermostat to 70 degrees but it doesnt cool down to 70, it seems that the temp in the house only rises, instead of cools down.


Setting Unit at 70* ? and not cooler ( dropping temp in the house ) Question ? does temp dop at all, if so the Unit maybe unsized, if the temps are going up then the unit is not working at all - maybe just the fan is running. If this is a split unit ( outside unit / furance). A number of things could cause the same problem - call a sevice company. it could be anything -from a Breaker to an electrical part, split Units have to different breakers ( fuse) . Check that first
