  • Posted in thread: Tip for for a compressor that wont run on 05-23-2012 at 07:30 AM
    I have a 2.5 ton Goodman air conditioner condensing unit. I was having a problem where it would
    burn up the contactor which would then eat the transformer. I had a service guy come out and
    said that I...

    If you have a burned out transformer there is a good chance that the contactor shorted and
    burned up the transformer. There is no good way to test the contactor. You can get one cheap

    I spoke with an HVAC friend of mine and he laid out the typical scenario for a bad transformer.

    outside u...

    My crappy old multi meter was working intermittently. I bought a better one at Harbor Freight
    and will check out the transformer. Thankfully it is still reasonably cool here in NC. But,
    soon it's gonn...

    Just so I'm clear, the control board controls heat and AC, with central air, correct?

    I checked power to the board this am before I left for work. It is getting 120VAC just fine.
    Nothing is coming out of the other side. I wasn't really looking but, I don't remember seeing a
    fuse on the...

    If this matters, I did climb up in the attic and open up the furnace/blower. I turned off the
    power. Opened her up and turned the power back on and held the safety switch down to see if the
    green or r...
