Intertherm P3RA-048K Air Conditioner - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

The little black box is a relay. The wires being melted means ,of course, that the contacts inside the box are pitted or corroded. You really should call a reputable repair man.

Sounds like the thermocouple has gone which can happen any time nothing to do with reg change But I would check that pilot is not blocked causing a short pilot .

change capacitors on unit

Tom P's answer is generally correct: The motor start capacitor is usually not the problem. However, in some cases, particularly on older furnaces, where there were capacitors of certain make and production run will prematurely fail. This happened in March on a mobile home HVAC unit where both the blower fan and condenser fan motor capacitors failed open circuit. Both caps were of the same Mfg, and production lot.
Here is a suggestion (for you or an electrically inclined friend): Locate a substitute motor capacitor having similar Mfd (or MF) and Voltage ratings. Remove power from the unit. Reach into the blower squirrel cage and spin it to verify that the shaft is not frozen. Pull the wires from the existing capacitor noting color and location. Connect the wires to the substitute capacitor and secure it place. Apply power and turn on the blower. A no start? Motor replacement time.

Shut off power, get a small wrench, remove orifice spuds and clean them with toothpick. Take burners out and clean rust from them. Check and see if you are getting 24 volts to gas valve. If not replace it.

You may have a problem with a temperature safety system.  Before changing anything else, check to see if the unit is clean!!!  Dirt/dust can fool the safety system into an overtemperature status.  Inspect the heat coils for damage and dirt.  Gently clean.

you need to contact your nearest a/c supply house. most company's that sale parts on line will not sale gas valves to the public due to liability.

Make sure the gas valve is turned to the ON position after you had it in PILOT position. Also check the thermostat low voltage wiring @ furnace...jumper the Red & White wires to bypass the thermostat temporarily. Make sure there is 24 volts on you low voltage circuit.

The wind is probably not the culprit here. You probably have a crack in the heat exchanger, which allows the air from the blower to escape and blow out the pilot light.

Turn the power off to the unit and use a different color thermostat wire in place of the green wire. If this works, there is a short in the wire. If not it's likely either a relay or a bad motor.

Go to a ac supply house and tell them you need a good coil cleanner at about $10:00 a gallon.

Copy this link not sure why the Ac part at the end isn't attached to the link but it is part of it.
Should be able to find any wiring diagram for your Intertherm Ac, which is manufactured by Nordyne.
Hope this helps.

What light is flashing Red? Is it on your thermostat or is it a red light inside the package unit at a circuit board?
