It may think it needs emergency heat and maybe even trying to defrost. A service call may be less expensive than the electric bills. Any idea the cost to fix something like this.
If the capacitor goes bad the motor will try to run but will overheat and shut down on thermal overload. The question isв-does the compressor run. It may be more serious than just a fan motor. Also, many times, the fan motor itself will have worn out bearings causing it to overload and thermal out. Well I can hear it on it blows air but no cold air and the big machine outside fan thing is not spinning.
The fan only should come on. If the air handler makes a buzzing sound, it probably has a bad fan relay or, more likely, blower fan.

There is no "best" filter in terms of brand, but there are things to look for when buying filters. The number one thing to avoid are filters like the ones pictured in this article. Stay away from filters that advertise that they are electrostatic, remove dust, mold, and allergens.
The contact plate looks clean, no corrosion. Sounds like a wiring problem. Or it could be the thermostat. Buying a new thermostat could be the easiest and most affordable first step.
A full calibration of your thermostat to verify proper operation. An inspection of the ductwork for possible energy loss. Tightening and inspection of all the electrical connections to verify safe system operation.
Evaluate performance of the blower motor and the condition of the blower belt.
Ok the compressor isnt the problem now. I replaced it and the new one seems to be working like it should. The new problem is the compressor gets turned off at the plug. I checked the high pressure switch and test for continuity, and it is not shutting off the compressor.Other Locations Served:

By the way, those are good ohm readings Any bad readings and the pump will not run. If there is an issue with the compressor pump it would more than likely be in the valves and they are easily tested on a heat pump.
