Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Whirlpool portable AC, compressor works, but no exhaust fan

\015 Portable air conditioner, the compressor cools, but there is no exhaust air out the back of the unit, so the compressor ultimately shuts down.\015\012Is it something I can fix myself?\015

Answers :

This is a single speed permanent split capacitor motor for the condenser. One of the capacitor wires shows infinite resistance to hot and netral. The motor needs to be replaced.
There are 3 possiblities 
\015\012\015\012
    \015\012
  1. something obstructing the lower fan motor (or exhaust motor)
  2. \015\012
  3. bad fan capacitor
  4. \015\012
  5. or bad motor
to check any of these you will need to disassemble the unit to get to the blower. there are several screws located at various points on the plastic housing covering the unit. Once removed you should be able to check for motor obstructions visually. for checking the motor and capacitor you will need a volt/ohm meter and ideally a capacitor checker. you could try to spin start the motor while it is powered up this could be a possible sign of a bad capacitor if it will start when you do this or if the motor will spin freely while powered down and will not spin start when powered up. I know that is kind of confusing but its how they work. GO FIGURE. \015\012thanks Peyton\015\012

Hi, two days ago I bought a Danby Premiere DPAC13009 portable AC unit. It worked on the first day reducing the temperature from 32C in the room to 26C in a few hours. Although now there is no cold air coming out of the AC and only the fan is working. I verified the two hoses and the exhaust is working good, lot of air is blowing out. Although, no air seem to be sucked in from the intake hose. I checked and I don't see any obstruction. Could the compressor be dead already??? thank you


Comperssors have a thermal overload. If there is a starting problem or low on freon the conpressor will shut down until cooled off. Try restarting and listen to compressor. ... Danby Air Conditioners

Had a PF code, unplugged the 4 pin probe connector and plugged it back in and fixes that problem until next PF code.....often. Ran perfect for a couple hours and turned it off for the night, when I restarted it the next morning the top blower works but the compressor nor the exhaust fan come on. I have emptied the tank, cleaned the filters, started and restarted, let sit for 10 minutes several times and tried again...compressor doesn't start nor the exhaust fan. The top blower works when on AC,

I have a whirlpool model ACM102xLO that seems to be dying. I cleaned the coils, and the unit seems to operate normally for a few minutes. Fan motor works, compressor motor seems to work. When I checked the amp pull on the fan motor, it falls in the normal range of 1.2A. When the compressor kicks on, the amp pull jumps to around 10 and climbs to a high of 15 or so, then the compressor shuts off and the amps jump to about 25 or 26, before cutting off completely. The amps then drop to the fan motor

I have a Sharp CV10NH Portable Air Conditioner with the same problem as posted by gtkermit on Jun 08, 2010: works fine for a few minutes then compressor turns off and fan continues for a few minutes then compressor kicks in again and cools for a few minutes (cycles about every 5 minutes perhaps.) I have followed all suggestions on page 30 of the manual (as well as the different options for venting, etc.) ms-shop suggested that the thermostat needs to be replaced. How do i do this? Thank you!

Whirlpool 240V ADF18040 18000 btu A/C started shutting itself off. Only way to turn back on is to cycle circuit breaker off-on. Did this 5 or 6 times over the course of 2 or 3 days...now won't work at all. It's not short-cycling the compressor, since it did this even with the thermostat off (warmest position). ???Maybe fan motor capacitor???

Compressor does not run. On turning the AC on, the compressor does not run. The blower fan does though. Checking the relay panel, the relay for the compressor does not engerize. a temporary solution is to put a switch across the contacts the compressor on and then the thermostate is set so that the AC should work, the fan comes on and the unit works as usual. The only exception is that the temperature must be controlled manually.


Hi, if you are energizing the contacts on the contactor, and the compressor runs, the thermostat is faulty. This is what energizes the contactor coil that you have. You need to check to see if you have voltage to the coil on the contactor. You need t ... Coleman Mach 15 Air Conditioner

I have a Haier HWR05XC7 that will NOT work. The compressor turns on, but the fan won't work. The fan moves freely because I tried moving it with a screwdriver, but when I turn the unit on, the compressor kicks on, but no fan.

Also, the red error light stays on and there is nothing in the manual on how to troubleshoot it (other than making sure it is turned on and plugged in!). No support from Haier or Circ

Everstar mpk10cr grinding compressor I think.... Fan works fine, will kick into cool mode (elevated fan level) for a few seconds then it sounds like the compressor has a loose mount or something... sometimes it rattles for a few minutes (and cools) but sometimes it shuts the rattling off as fast as it starts and doesnt really ''cool'' or dehumidify.... Some days its works fine all day, others it just never really gets its ''**** together'' so to speak... Can users recharge the coolant themselve

My unit's compressor will intermittantly stop working. The thermostat seems to keep the intake unit working but since it can't get the temperature down it never shuts off. We have been removing the batteries and letting the thermostat reset for 20 minutes. (thermostat Honeywell RTH23110B). After the reset the compressor will work again but will fault within a day.

Unit will run all day OK w/just fan, but when put on "cool", it will run and produce cold air for 15 min, the fan then quits. Compressor will run for 5 - 10 minutes more by itself, then the circuit breaker kicks.
