Question about Coleman Heating & Cooling

Open Question

Basement air in a winnebago 2000 adventurer. The ac makes a buzzing noise about every 90 seconds. It lasts maybe 10 seconds. Like the compressor is trying to turn on. It is 100 degrees here .We changed out the run and start capacitors about 3 months ago, but the symptoms were different then. but now, at least one compressor is working. What do we try ? Must we turn off the ac completely until it is fixed ? Thank you. Pam

SOURCE: ac fan not turning on I can ''stick start it'' but which direction?

The condensor fan should be sucking air from the top and blowing it through the coils, probably a counter clockwise direction. The buzzing/humming sound is confusing to me. A humming sound sounds like a motor that can not turn over to start. A starting capacity would be needed. Just because you changed it out last year does not mean it is good. A buzzing sound sounds like a contactor problem. Contactors buzz and after a while, they will fail. In any case, you can "stick start" the condensor fan PROVIDED you are sure the ac compressor is working (this is for a short and temporary use). Also, you may have a high load duty capacitor that assists in the unit running. This will affect your condensor fan operation if it is not good. Unless you know all the components and operations of ac electrical, I would highly recommend calling out a professional.

SOURCE: RVP 8000 Series Compressor wont stay running.

Try shutting everything else off temporarily that would draw any hydro in the unit, or even shut off all breakers except AC, and see what happens. See if it runs longer with everything else off. Double check nothing else on same circuit as your AC, and also confirm that 12/2 & not 14/2 cable size used for AC.

make sure the system switch is in the cool position, then press run program button and allow a couple of minutes for system to cycle on, if it doesn't come on press the button for lowering the set point, set it to 72 degrees and then press the hold temperature key.

Heat Pump makes a surging/buzzing sound every 20 seconds


You might have a short going to your reversing valve. Check the temperature of all three lines out of the valve. The one on the left should be cold and the one on the left should be warm hot. . Check voltage to the valve.if it fluctuates that might be the reason for the buzz.

Have someone check your pressures & temperatures in your refrigeration system. Also check the compressor amps with an analog meter to see if the amps fluctuating. There might be something wrong with the compressor.

It is making a buzzing sound


Hi,
You can start with replacing the start capacitor and relay to see if the compressor will run again, but you have about a 50 -50 chance that the compressor has gone bad and will need to be replaced....

My air conditioner is on but not blowing cold air and buzzes


The compressor is not starting. The buzzing noise you hear is the compressor trying to start and then the thermal overload trips. When it cools it will try to start again. Could be a bad capacitor or the compressor is bad. These two units need to be tested to see which one is bad. A capacitor is inexpensive. If it's the compressor it will be cheaper to buy a new AC.

REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling


You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

Goodman Condenser - Heat - Buzzing Noise every 60 seconds


It could be your compressor trying to start but not being able to do so. It shouldnt happen that often but in cold temp the overload protector may cycle that quickly. I reccomemnd to have it checked to salvage the expensive compressor.
