Geothermal compressor relay?

Posted by jscozz (My Page) on

I have two WaterFurnace units in my home. Both were just put in service although they were installed a while ago.

In one unit, when the compressor relay kicks in, it is an almost inaudible little click. But in the other unit, it is about a second of relay buzzing, a visible arc, then the unit runs normally after that. Does this sound like a bad relay or some other problem?

Any advice appreciated.

RE: Geothermal compressor relay?

Sounds like you have bad relay contacts, but there may be other things going on too. Have your installer out to check things out.
