Troubleshoot an HVAC Circuit Board
In order to determine whether you have a malfunctioning AC circuit board, you typically have to exhaust all other likely causes of problems. Before you order a replacement PCB, make sure that none of these problems led to your malfunctioning AC:
Thermostat: Thermostats tell your AC when its time to turn on or shut off. If you have a problem with your thermostat, your air conditioner will not function properly.
Power Cord: Though it can seem overly obvious, many people miss the all-important power cord as a cause of AC problems. Check to make sure that your power cord has not become unplugged, overly frayed, or plugged into a dead outlet.
Temperature Sensor: Similar to the thermostat, this component regulates the function of your air conditioner through detection of the desired temperature.
If you’ve ruled out the above, then you can probably blame a faulty circuit board. Problems here can result from a few different factors, including:
Water Damage: Internal water damage to your AC can cause the PCB to short-circuit.
Corrosion: An older air conditioner and outside factors can cause a PCB to corrode.
Continual Wear and Tear: General wear and tear, such as heavy use or short-cycling, can damage your circuit board.
Power Surge: As with circuit boards on your computer, a power surge can destroy the PCB on your air conditioner.
Pests: If insects or lizards have taken up residence inside your air conditioner, they can become “fried” on the circuit board and render it inoperable.
