noise from carlyle compressor, hissing sound


Thank you so much for your feedback and I really appreciate it.
I do not think the fan came on. I switched on AC and went out to see if the fan is working. From the distance I heard the short circuit noise (bang) and saw smoke and I switched the breaker off. I went back to the unit and heard the hissing noise which lasted for a while.I did not smell any kind of gas tough.

Possible shorted fan motor, blown capacitor, causing circuit trip. Really hard to tell at this point guess you have to call a tech.

You may also have a contaminated system if it ran and the burnt out windings etc got circulated into the rest of the system. Need proper flushing,testing and filter driers etc. If it is less than 13 SEER I would recommend a complete new system. Burn outs are very difficult to clean up properly.
