If you are not comfortable working around High Voltage, do not attempt to fix anything. At your own risk, there will be two small wires going to your outside unit and one set of larger wires. The larger set powers the unit with High Voltage. Leave them alone. The smaller wires carry Low Voltage and energize the control on the condenser. If your thermostat is not sending a signal, these two small wires will not have any voltage running thru them. Check for 24 volts when the thermostat is calling for Cool. For a quick test, jump out the terminals where the two wires connect and see if the outside unit starts. If not, you have issues that will require a technician. If it does start, check the wires for any breaks or bare spots and replace if you can. Check the thermostat and make sure it is in fact calling for Cool. Replace any batteries in it or jump out the same two wires at the thermostat and see if it starts. You may need to replace the thermostat if it does start.

Is it normal for the outdoor unit on my coleman h/p to make a surging humming noise? the fan does not run during this period, approx. temp. is 28 degrees F. the fan runs 30 seconds befor the unit...

Sounds like your unit is going into defrost mode. When this happens the fan in the outdoor unit shuts off so you get more heat in the outdoor unit to defrost the coils. The heatpump is basically in A/C mode during defrost and the electric heat strips will kick in so you don't feel a cold blast of air in the house.

Where is the capacitor located on a coleman heatpump

If you're talking about the outside fan, look where the wire goes into the outside unit. The capacitor will be somewhere near the circuit board and will be round or oval and metal or plastic. If you're talking about the inside unit it will be with the electrical control in the air handler. Write down where the wires go. The terminals on the capacitor will be marked and for the outside unit you will either have 1 that runs both the fan and compressor or a seperate one for each. If you have 1 that runs both the wires must be reconnected to the right terminals. They will be marked COM, FAN, HERM(stands for compressor). Take the old one with you to get a new one. Let me know what you find.

AC/Heatpump units cycle numerous times blowing ambient air.

If the compressor never kicks in, I would check the start capacitor, thermostat and the compressor windings. Most times the start capacitor is defective. Some window air conditioners the fan will run while the compressor stop through the thermostat switch. If the thermostat switch is bad every thing runs except the compressor. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

This is actually a very easy task as long as you get a direct replacment board. If not the key essentials are the reversing valve contacts and the power contacts coming to the board.
As long as the board is a direct replacement you can switch wire to wire form the old board to the new board.

Please re comment me if you have any other questions.
