Have HVAC Questions? Ask an HVAC Expert for Answers
Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset. I am Appliance Guru an extremely experienced tech on the site and I try to get to as many customers as I can. I just picked up your question now. NOTE it takes time for me to type research and add links so please wait for me to respond back I can only do this so fast. Secondly I am not paid anything until you rate my service good using the STAR RATING LINK at the top of your page, the money is paid to the site not me directly.
Check and see if the contactor is losing power and tripping the unit on and off. Use a volt meter to see if you are losing power there, you could have a bad contactor on the unit or possible a low voltage supply issue to the contactor causing the issue.
All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the site and that will also get you a DIRECT LINK emailed to you to get back to me!.....tips are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service. If you have any other questions just post back to me here anytime!
This is the contactor
OK so it did shut off when you had it held down? If so check and see if you lost power to the contactor itself as it should not have been been able to shut off
Yes I am still here
Do you have a copy of the wiring diagram on it and what brand unit is this model and age?
