More than likely. Your fan motor is probably pulling to many amps. Observe your unit while it is not running. By way of turn the blades of the fan to feel if you experience any restriction. If so. Your fan motor is bad. There are other reason, like shortages, within the wiring, bad contactor, among others, however; check the fan motor first then conduct a thorough visual inspection.

AC unit will not turn on and will not cool down


The first thing you want to check is all your breakers and disconnects. You should have 2 breakers in your breaker panel, one that runs unit inside and one that runs unit outside. Turn both off and then back on to make sure they are not tripped. Next go to your unit inside and you want to look for a breaker on the unit and/or a disconnect somwwhere in the immediate area. If it is a breaker, reset that, If it is a disconnect, you have a lever on it or, it may have a pull out piece your going to want to pull out and inspect to make sure it doesn't look burnt. It should say "on" on it and maybe an arrow but when properly installed, you should be able to read "on" right side up not upside down. Next, you want to go to the unit outside. It should have a disconnect of the same fashion, so check it also. At this point make sure your thermostat in in the "on" or "auto", auto would be the right setting but, does the unit run? If so, is the unit outside running as well. If only the inside unit runs, you either have a bad thermostat or a bad capacitor or wire in the unit outside, it could be other things with the unit outside but, these are common items. If everything runs, and it is still not cool, again, the thermostat could be bad or it may be time for a charge. Make sure you filter is clean as well because limited air flow acn cause the unit to freeze up and not work.

Air conditioner comes on but is not cooling the house....new house, new unit


Try going outside and locate your outdoor unit. If the thermostat is on, and the fan is running inside, the outdoor unit should be on as well. If it isn't, locate the circuit breakers in your breaker box. There will be two. Trip them back and all the way forward.

If the unit is running outside, sometimes the air cond contractor forgets to come back and charge the unit with refrigerant. In this case be sure to contact the air cond contractor that installed the unit.

The heating elements had burned up in the unit therefor creating a dead short on that circuit. Main breakers on homes and buildings are VERY sensitive and will sometimes trip before the smaller branch cicuit breakers will . So the popping you heard was the heating elements breaking down inside the unit it can be some what noisy.

Inside Electric Furnace/Air Handler Not Working. Please help!


ok this can be simple or tricky is the breaker that trips the same size as the one in the breaker panel 2.look in the unit itsself see if there r breakers inside the unit there usually are and they might have tripped it might be as simple as flipping a breaker but the problem with the breaker tripping is what concerns me now it may just be undersized or getting weak and finally crapped out get ur meter and flip the breaker on and see if u r getting power to the unit if ur not u have gott a breaker that isnt letting power go thru now if u have power u might have a bad blower motor turn the unit on and calling for the fan on if the fan doesnt start try spinning the blower by hand now if it starts then u probably have a bad capacitor they r usually mounted on the side of the blower housing it is oval and its gonna be a 5mfd(microfarad) or 7.5mfd and that couldve been what was kicking the breaker now if the blower is stuck and it wont turn or its very hard to turn then make sure the blower wheel hasnt slipped on the shaft and is rubbing up against the housing if it is just loosen the set screw and set it back even and tighten it back up now if the wheel is free and its still hard to turn then u have a bad blower motor its not a big deal to change out and not real expensive if this dont help hit me back and well walk thru it hope this gets lil momma and the pets warm have a good day

My outside unit runs a little while then shuts off.


More likely the out door fan motor has bad bearings and that would cause the out door unit to run for 15 to 20 min but it could be low on freon
when the out door unit runs after 3 to 5 min the larger of the two copper lines going into the unit should be ice cold

If the thermostat you just installed has a time delay that will keep the indoor blower motor running for up to 5 min after the unit shuts off

Throwing breaker


Throwing the MAIN BREAKER should not happen. Calculate the distance to your main box. Tell me the wire gauge or breaker amperage. Whatever you do, do not get a larger breaker! If its a breaker on this unit Its probably doa with current leak possibly. DO NOT USE fire hazzard IF SHE TRIPS!!! let me know if its your main breaker inthe house. Hopefully you dont have crappy cloth wiring.

Lg ductless no ac


I may not be of much help but I may be able to guide you into some diagnosos. If there is a communication problem between the inside and outside unit, both on the inside and outside units a colored LED will bling 5 times then pause for 3 seconds. The 33 and 44 codes are confusing to me because I have never seen this. Try resetting the outside unit with no call for heat or cool from the inside unit. After about 20 seconds, restore power to the outside unit. Go in and turn on the remote and make sure you lower the cool setting more than degrees cooler than the room temp. After 3 minutes the outside unit should turn on. If you get an error code of either 1, 2 or 5 blinks document it for the technician. If you continue to get your 33 and 44, you have a bad control board. If all else fails, press and hold the button located on the lower left side of the art unit and hold for about 5 seconds. If it still no longer works, now you will need the help of someone who knows these units.
