That is a high suction pressure should be running about 46 psig and head pressure should be amibent temp or outside temp and add 25 to it. that will give you approximate head temp. sounds like you have a dirty condenser I would clean it. Check your amp draw on your compressor if its high then I would check for dirty condenser. You can clean it with a stiff hair brush go up and down do not go sideways because you can damage your fins on the coil. Then take a water hose and wash it out. turn off the power to the unit before cleaning do not clean with compressor running. turn off the breaker box. I hope this helps.

if you are going high effiency you would have to replace outside unit as well. very expensive. if unit is less then 10 years old repair if not replace.

contactor coil bad or shorted low voltage \wires feeding outside unit.

industry standard is green to fan, yellow to outside condensor, white to heat, red to rh/rc

if you are talking about indoor blower a relay contacts are stuck in.

check contactor on condensor and low voltage wireing.

Bryant... | Answered on Aug 05, 2015


either the contactor coil is bad or your low voltage wires are shorting out.

This is true as long as it is not a heat pump. Make sure they replace the piston (metering device to match the outdoor units required piston size. Or if the indoor coil is metered via TXV, it will automatically meter the refrigerant flow. If you are mismatching a system, make sure an acid test is performed on the old refrigerant and take appropriate measures with the new system if the test shows positive acid. They need to definitely install a liquid line drier.

is fan spinning fast enough it has to have alot of velocity to cool condensor coils if you haft to push fan to get going its probably shot and get new motor the ac is a sealed system and hardly ever will leak freon!!!Best of Luck to You!!! :)

Any unit over 20 years is no longer energy efficient & it is past the lifespan of an AC. Get quotes from 3 different companies & go with best price with best warranty. I'm not partial to any particular manufacturer. They all get their parts from overseas.

Less than 10 years old most likely problem is the capacitor. A lightening strike near by or other power surge can zap it. At any age if a new capacitor doesn't fix it and it's wired right the motor is probably bad.

Hi, I have Done repairs on this problem many times. The problem is you will have to look around to find it and check some things I ask you to. This 5 amp fuse protects the 24 volt supply parts . You have high voltage coming into the unit and is stepped down to 24 volts for control parts like the thermostat, gas valve, safety switches and so on. The 1st thing I want you to do, so you don't blow to many fuses, you may blow a few more, but look on the circuit board where your thermostat wires are connected. You will see a Red R, a Yellow wire Y, a green wire G, and a White wire W. Draw you a picture so you don't forget, and take all of these low voltage wires off of the terminals. This takes the low voltage wiring and thermostat out of the circuit.They wont shock you either. Now, put in a new fuse and make sure the heater is plugged in.If the fuse does not blow you are real close to fixing the problem. This means the heater is OK but the wires going from there to your thermostat are touching metal by the heater. Look over the wires very well where they come in to see if they have been scraped on a sharp piece of metal. That's all it could be is one of these wires in the brown sheath is cut and touching metal.If the fuse blew again, then you have a problem with one of the other 24 volt componants shorted. The best way to check these componants is to unplug as many as you can. Just take the wires off and write down where they go. This is easier then you think. Take the wires off the gas valve. Off the other little switches and so on. Put a new fuse in and if it did not blow you no that one of the switches is the bad one. Take one at a time the wires you took off and plug them in. The one you plug in that blows the fuse is the bad part. Very easy but takes time.Write me back and let me know how you did. Hopefully, you found a thermostat wire that was touching metal. If every part that runs on 24 volts is not blowing the fuse, then the board you plug it into is bad. Make sure you have checked all limit switches, thermostat wires, gas valve and so on. Let me know what you find and we can go from there. I have done this so many times and the problem part or wire will be right in front of you. Just remember that when you unplug these things and the fuse does not blow, it has to be the one you plug in that blows it. Get back to me, I want to know. Good Luck and take your time, you can do this.

I asume you are talking about the outdoor fan motor, I soulds as thouigh it gave up the ghost and you may need a new one..

Bryant... | Answered on Jul 19, 2011


There will be two fuses, usually located out by your unit. You will more than likely see a box with a door on it. This door will either flip up or to the side. There will be two fuses behind a cartridge that you will have pull out. If you don't have an ohm meter, you will have to take them to the hardware store and they will probably be able to check them for you. If not, you will have to just buy them and replace the old ones.

If you have an ohm meter just set it highest ohm setting and put one lead on one end of the fuse, the other lead on the other end of the fuse. If you get a reading, the fuse is good. If the needle doesn't move the fuse is bad.

You may also have circuit breakers. Again, if it is a 240volt unit, you will have two breakers. If so, trip them all the way back and then all the way forward. Breakers are generally joined together by a clip.

Sounds like an electric heat sequencer is stuck closed keeping the unit running. If you turn the heat off at the thermostat, does the unit shut down?
Unless you are familier with electrical controls, i would recommend having a licensed A/C Co. out to test it.
