Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?


\015 The air conditioner pump makes a humming noise when turned on is it because the fan is not working?\015\012No air working right now..\015\012What should i do?\015

Answers :

Yes it could be the pop off pressure relief on the compressor.
I assume it is the outdoor fan your referring to not running.

If this is a heat pump and it is in defrost (only in the heating mode should your outdoor fan be off and then for only a max of 12 to 15 minutes).
If it is just AC ir is Heat pump in cool mode, the out door fan should run while the compressor and indoor fan are on. Until the thermostat is satisfied on room temp.

This high pitched squealing is indicative of a bad fan motor or capacitor for the out door fan motor. Kill power and test blades to see if turns free. Check the run capacitor inside control panel. It is usually silver or aluminum colored (some are painted gray). The top should be flat with rolled edges and the sides should either be round or oval shaped with no swelling or oil leaking from inside it. If this all looks normal take it to where your going to get a motor any way and ask them to check it or sell you a replacement at the same time. These can go out usually from high voltage (lighting...) or from over heating (bad fan motor, dirty out door coil...).

Hope this helps you if not post back I'll respond as soon as I can. And please rate me as high as you can. Thank you for using Fix ya and good luck.

I bought a GE Air Conditioner at Walmart yesterday, we installed it. When we turned it on to cool the house down,the compressor came on and made a high pitch sound. When the fan is on it does not make the sound. Just when the compressor comes on, Model# AEW10AJS1 AEW10AJS1

Does the high pitched sounded continue or does it just occur when you turn the compressor on. Does it go off? If so, how long does it take? Please email me at [email protected] Thanks very much. Bill Depperman ... GE Air Conditioners

I have a Sanyo khs1271 that is about three years old. For the last six months it has been making a high pitch chirping sound in both heating and cooling modes. I suspect the problem is the fan on the indoor unit as the chirping only occurs when the fan speed is on high. So far, the only solution to the problem has been to turn it on quiet mode, which reduces the fan speed and thus makes the unit's ability to heat or cool less effective. Does anyone know how to access the fan on the indoor unit

My air conditioner is making a high pitched squeal after about 15 minutes operation. I have just had a repairman regas it as he said it was leaking. The noise seemed to have gone away but when left on for 10-15 minutes it comes back.The high pitched noise is ear splitting!

If the squealing is comming from the outside unit then you might need a new condensor fan motor ... Air Conditioners

Once you turn on aircon with fan with high speed, the air blown doesn't get cold even after a while. The fan makes some wierd high pitch sound as if like metal against each other. The fan stops once in a while and makes that same sound once it start turning again. This goes cyclic through out the time it is turned on but not cooling the air from the aircon.

Your AC needs a good overhauling as the fan seems struck on the bearings or the blades are rubbing the sides. Also the compressor fails to cool as there can be low gas, low pumping pressure or a blocked condenser.\012You need to remove clean th ... Air Conditioners

I have a Carrier whole house Air Conditioner I want to replace. It is model 38EN048320. @ things: 1. What "ton" is that AC rated at? It's so old I can't find what size it is so hard to pick a replacement. 2. With todays models they are all high efficency, should I get the same size replacement or can you step down a notch based on the efficency in models made today? I know a contractor would figure this all out but I'm doing this job myself as I have done this before.

1. 3 Ton Up To 4 Ton 2. You should get the same size - high efficiency means that for the same heat extracted from the residence the unit consumes less electricity than an older one. How much less is explained in the ratings: if your prese ... Air Conditioners
