    Confused 24v issue

    I have 24v going to my condenser, but contactor will not pull. Contactor brand new and I know condenser will run when I manually push contactor. I feel this is something very simple, but Im just looking in it too much. Anybody got any ideas?

    Inside furnace Janitrol with board.

    Condenser-straight cool-very old Fedder.

    You likely have a brand new contactor that is 120v rather than 24v. If not you might want to check and see if the 24 volts is going to the contactor or is it only getting to the delay on break.

    Shouldnt this be moved to the pro forum?

    Wrong coil voltage. They all look alike. Read nameplate coil info.
