West Coast Chief Repair presents Common Electrical Problems with Air Conditioner Units
AC units are full of electrical components and several things can be the cause of your trouble, but there are a few common electrical problems that your unit may experience.
Fans • The blower fans have the job of blowing the cold air through the vents into your home and pulling warm air out. • There is wiring that is run around that connects the blower motor and the fans. • Air flow becomes reduced, putting a strain on the other fans.
Capacitors • Capacitors are the small cylinder shaped pieces that have the job of carrying electricity to the blower motors. • Each separate motor has two capacitors. • One starts the motors while the other keeps the motors running.
Compressor • Compressor is the engine of the whole system.It is also very expensive to replace. • It is responsible for compressing the coolant in the coils that cools the air as it flows through. • If the voltage is too weak or too strong, the compressor can stop working. • Motor and capacitor failures will also affect the compressor’s performance.
Relays • Air conditioners have relays that have the job of controlling the high-voltage parts and bringing power to them. • Electrical relays are an important part of the unit’s operation. • If the motor does not turn on, a relay could be stuck in the open position. • When a unit does not turn off, a relay could be stuck in the closed position.
Point To Remember Electrical repair for air conditioner units can be complex and dangerous for inexperienced people. Always use a qualified person.
You should not attempt to make repairs on your own. • The risk of accidental electrocution or potential damage to the home is too high. • A qualified professional should handle the inspection and repair.
