Outdoor units require there own power supply, check the breaker panel and the fuses in the disconnect switch box next to the unit if there are fused, If the capacitor that was changed last year was not the right rating or configuration it may need to be corrected. One of the most common mistakes is to find a dual run capacitor with on side not functioning and jump in a capacitor for the non functioning side, if this was done it needs to be corrected with the proper capacitor or capacitors.

Compressor quit working. 3 year old unit.


All parts on Goodman equipment have a five warranty from the factory. Capacitor may have gone bad, check electrical compartment for swollen,bulged capacitor inside, should be flat on top where the electrical wiring connects, if a uf testing meter available it will verify capacitor, remember to shut off power first.

My 4 year old Ruud home a/c compressor stopped working. inside fan blows but compressor won't turn on...what can I do prior to calling the gas company who installed the unit...


Ruud parts warranty from factory is 5 years, the capacitor has possible gone out, it will be in the contol compartment on the out side unit and is a dual run capacitor that controls the compressor and fan motor. Recommend if capacitor is bad to replace entire capacitor. As Stated above the parts are under warranty if under five years old. To verify age the date code is in the serial number after the "F" **** week/year of manufacture. Also outside unit has independent power supply so check fuses if any and circuit breaker.

Keeps flashing ES, not cooling. Not even one year old.


The 2 most common issues are a freon leak or the outside unit fan start capacitor goes out. It's more likely a capacitor issue. They fail regularly, especially when it's as hot as it's been this year. I had a fan capacitor go out on one of my 3 units last year and it cost close to $300 for an AC company to come out and fix it. I watched them fix it and it's something that you can do yourself if you know what you're doing and are careful to hook it up right. I have three AC units and another capacitor went out this year and I found a kit with detailed instructions with pictures and phone support at hvacrepairkits.com. It saved me over $200 on the capacitor replacement.

Frigidaire Air conditioner: fas296n2a2 Compressor


Do you have an amp meter? and volt meter. Are you sure that the compressor is getting power? The click may simply be a relay closing but no power. Check both sided of the relay. You will need to trace the power and make sure that the compressor is getting power. Then check the amps to see how much power it's pulling.

LG AC compressor problem


Compressor may be locking up. Run capacitor may be weak or loose wire. Sounds like major voltage drop off as unit head pressure increases.

I have a Jantrol heat pump & A/C. It is approximately 10 years old. For the last 3 summers the compressor unit will freeze when the air handler fans fails to come on. It worked fine for 2 weeks this...


Hi,

If you can safely check the supply to the motor when it should be on, then this is the best method to check it.

Check the fan turns very freely - oil the bearings if it doesn't.

If there is power there, but it does not turn, replace the run capacitor.

If this get's you going - Please rate as Fixya so others may benefit. Thanks!
