Air conditioning contact replacement

Air conditioning contactor replacement near Laguna Hills CA

What are the A/C Contact and Capacitor?

Your air conditioner’s contact and capacitor work together to help power your air conditioner’s fan and compressor whenever your thermostat calls for cool (the capacitor and contact in your heat pump work the same way).

The contactor is the “switch” that receives a low voltage (usually 24V) signal from your furnace to turn on. It’s a standard magnetic relay, meaning low voltage flows through a coil inside the contactor to creates a magnetic field, which then pulls down a piece of metal that connects both sides of the high-voltage circuit usually (120V or 240V).

Closing the circuit allows high voltage to power the fan and compressor motors. A contactor with one magnetic coil that connects one circuit is called a “single-pole,” if it has two magnetic coils that connect two circuits it’s called a “dual-pole,” and so on.

The capacitor is like a “battery” that stores some of that high voltage goodness to create what’s called a “phase shifted current,” which is what causes your fan and compressor motors to spin.

Bad Air conditioner capacitor and new near Laguna Hills CA

Your A/C capacitor will be either a dual capacitor or a single capacitor. A dual capacitor has three sets of terminals on top: one for the compressor, one for the fan, and a shared “common” terminal for both to use. A single capacitor only has two terminals, and if your unit uses single capacitors, you probably have two of them in your system (one for the compressor and one for the fan).

One response to “Air conditioning contact replacement”

  1. After time your air conditioner parts start to fail. The electrical components are important part of your air conditioning condenser unit. Without these parts working properly the compressor will not run and you will have no cooling. Most of my calls are because the capacitor has failed but we must also look at why the capacitor failed like checking all the electrical connections and also the start contacts. Using the right replacement capacitor is key but also the brand. We have discovered using the cheap China capacitors fail within 6 – 8 months.
