Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a Carrier 38CKS and want to do general maintenance, oiling etc. on my unit. Last week when I was outside, the unit started up....It made an awful squealing sound for a moment before the fan started rotating. We have not heard the sound since then. Thank you for your advise.

Sounds like your fan motor is going out keep an eye on it it could just have been the first start of the season. The unit does sit there all winter not moving. If this continues replace fan motor and capacitor. If this helps please rate me and do a testimonial.

Carrier model 38cks air conditioner compressor fan


sounds like you need to replace the condenser fan motor. It has a thermal overload inside the compressor and will shut it off before it harms the compressor. The only way to get it to reset is cool down the compressor with a water hose.

38cks is blowing air but it's not cooling


First thing, are the filters clean? If so then you have lost some gas from the system and need to find and repair the leak, and put in correct gas charge.

I have a central air conditioning unit in the apartment where I live. It is a split unit - somewhere outside is my outdoor unit (and everybody elses too). Anyway I seem to get way too much humidity in my...


the humidity problem is from the condesation drain. It is more than likely to be clogged up keeping water in the condensation pan causing the humidity problem. This can be cured by a wet vac put onto the outside drain for the inside condensation pan and turned on. this removes the algae that builds up in the a/c condensation pans. Also, an a/c unit is designed to last 25 to 30 years depending on the location of the outside unit. Inside unit being an apartment, has other issues, it just may need to have some preventive maintenance done such as coil cleaned filter changed, motor oiled, etc....
