This model can use a generic contactor providing it is rated for the amp load of the compressor and fan of the unit. I will link a similar contactor that you can use.

We have a Bryant 556a model, puron Central air saystem. The air handler unit keeps blowing the 5a fuses. I replaced the filter. I cleaned the main contactor at the compressor. It ran for a couple...

The small wires that go from your furnace to the outside unit could be freyed or bare and touching something or maybe even together. Some time dogs will chew these wires outside or under a house if you have a crawl space. You may need to inspect the wires . If looks bad, you can go to a local hardware store and buy new wiring.

I have seen the contactor also blow this fuse. Especially if the contacted are pitted or at time the 24volt coil will be shorted.

These are the two main problems that could be occurring. Good luck. Mark

My a/c unit will not turn on. It is fine at the thermostat and the blower fan turns on but the a/c unit outside will not turn on.

First check the disconnect/circuit breaker that should be located close to the outside unit. Next remove the cover where the power goes into the outside unit so that you can see the contactor. Do a visual check of the contactor and contacts. Set the thermostat to make the A/C come, then look at the contactor to see if the contacts have closed. Use a voltmeter to check for power on the load side of the contactor. If the contacts didn't close, remove the thermostat face and install a jumper between R and Y terminals and see if it pulls in then. If it does then, the problem is your thermostat. If the contacts close and you have power check the capacitor next. If it looks swollen, it is bad - replace it, otherwise you can check it with a multimeter with the capacitor check function. Try these simple checks and let me know what you find if this doesn't fix it so I can give you some more things to look at.

Do bryant condensing units have a reset button? We can't get the unit to kick on. All power is correct and fan starts inside, but can't get condensing unit to kick on.

Most Bryant units do not have a reset button but could have a low pressure or high pressure switch for a safety to protect the compressor. Verify power from the thermostat to the contactor by following the thermostat wires all the way to contactor inside of electrical compartment... TURN POWER OFF BEFORE OPENING.... If power is to contactor and contactor is pulled in then you would need to look at the capacitor of which is a canister about 6 inshes tall with wire terminals on top.. this part should be flat on the top and if it is rounded then thats your problem.. if not then contact a local company to troubleshoot and make necessary repairs.

I have a Bryant 661CJ030-E. While in cooling mode

Refrigerants are regulated by the EPA. In order to purchase it, you need an EPA License. If you are low on refrigerant, the leak needs to be found and repaired. This requires special tools.

Additionally, with the information given, it could be an electrical problem. Is the outside fan running, is the compressor running? Your best bet is to call a professional.

You said the outdoor fan is not running, can you hear the compressor running? If you can hear the compressor running then start by checking the fan capacitor. If you can't hear the compressor, then check the breakers or fuses or disconnect. One of these should be located near the outside unit. If you look at the contactor you can see the contacts. When the unit is off they should not be touching, when it is on then the moveable contacts should be pulled down and touching the stationary contacts. You can get some on at the thermostat while you watch the contactor to see if it moves when they change the thermostat to call for a/c. Let me know what you find and I can give you more advice.

YES. It seems your capacitor is bad.
It must be replaced with the exact specifications as the original.
IE: MFD and VOLTAGE for the compressor and fan motor.

Is the Bryant 661CJ030-A heat pump single- or multi-stage?

Single stage heat pump. But you must have a two stage tstat for backup electric heat. You single stage cool two stage heat. The second stage brings on the electric heat in case the heat pump can not keep up. Wiring goes r y w1 on most heat pump tstats are switchover valve or o terminal. W2 second stage heat or emergency heat. g is fan c is common terminal.Rus
