Outside HVAC Unit Not Turning On or Working
The outdoor unit won’t turn on or run for your Las Vegas air conditioner or heat pump. There are quite a few things that could be causing the unit to not turn on or run; which can be quite serious. There is little you can do for the unit, but there are few things you can do. Clutter is a big one, be sure your unit is 3 feet of clearance surrounding it and if there is ice, turn the unit off for it to thaw and check your filter. If they are filthy, replace them. The thermostat might need adjusting as well. Additionally, check the following if the unit is not powering on:
– Emergency shut-off switch was triggered.
– Blown fuse.
– Tripped circuit breaker.
– Outdoor disconnect off.
– Unplugged condensate pump/open safety which.
– Tripped outdoor reset button.
– Lock-out of the unit.
In the event the outdoor unit won’t start and there is a faulty thermostat, contactor or capacitor, time-delay relay, burnt wires, or control module or a safety device, a professional from Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning would need to rectify the situation.
Outside AC Making Loud Noises
The Las Vegas desert’s outdoor unit makes noise is more often heard in the winter when the heat pumps makes loud and/or abnormal noises. Between the heating and cooling modes, the heat pumps have reversing valves that reverse the flow of refrigerant. In the winter, the heat pumps will shift the valve whenever the heat pump goes into the defrost mode, making a normal sound. There are other sounds the unit will make that are quite normal as the unit works. Abnormal sounds that indicate there is something amiss could stem from a metal grinding metal sound where the fan is making contact with an obstruction of some kind. Turn off the unit and check the fan, if any obstructions are there, make the adjustments; otherwise contact Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning. Additional abnormal sounds can originate from the following conditions that require an expert from Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning:
– Decayed compressor valve.
– Faulty motor.
– Damaged or misaligned fan blades.
– Low refrigerant.
– Poor reversing valve.
– Buzzing contactor.
– Bad compressor.
– Loud unit.
