Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

2 fans have burnt out in less than 1 year

\015 I replaced the first fan less than 6 months ago. my unit is only 4 years old. what could the problem possibly be???\015

Answers :

I would say the motor is pulling to much amp draw.When you install it watch you place the fan blades in the air steam.May be you are moving to much air and that will make the amps go up and cause the motor to over heat.Also hope you are getting the same hp and rpm.

The unit powers up and the fan blows well. The green light above the cool icon doesn't light up. Every 45-60 seconds the unit seems to strain and the fan decreases it strength for about 3-4 seconds and then it returns to blowing as bed ore. The unit does not seem to be cooling well. The unit is about 4-5 years old with less than 100 hours of use. It gets used maybe once a year. It was recently used last week, cooled great for two days and then began to function as described. Suggestions?

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

AC Problems Hi. I have a wall unit less than 5 years old. Fan is making noise. Expert told me to oil it. 1. If I dont oil it will it get damaged or is it just a convenience for the noise sake. 2. Does it make sense that such a young AC would need oiling? 3. I have another wall unit 22000 Fridgidaire that is young and ices up a lot. I had insulation pumped in to my walls a few years back. can you see any connection?

No A/C My unit will power on and the fan works, however when I turn it to the Cool mode I can hear a click in the unit, the cool light comes on for 5 seconds or less, then it will click again and the light will flash 9 times. The warranty on the unit is 4 years however only covers parts, labor is $90 per hour......Is it just a fuseable link/circuit breaker?

Goodman GSH130301AB heat pump with Braeburn 1200 multi-stage thermostat - both less than 1 year old and installed in new construction. Heat can be set at 60, fan on AUTO, with room temp at 70 and heat will kick on and stay on. When this happens, turning thermostat to OFF does nothing - system continues to blow heat - and I can only shut it off by flipping the breaker. This only happens now and then - typically works fine.

I have a 10-year old Carrier Gas pack Model #48GS024060301. Turned on the heat for the first time this season and the unit did not turn on.

All the fins on the fan blade basically flew off on the first start up attempt last year. The entire unit, heating and A/C, were serviced within the last year by a certified p

I have a Coleman Evcon gas furnace model# DGAT095ADA last year I replaced the T-O-D #60T82 - 313675 fan switch and works fine. This year the unit started fine, but slowly started taking longer & longer to heat up, then finally not heating up enough to trip fan switch. Manually tripping fan switch resulted in some warm air through system, but not enough to heat a house. Gas comes on and is blue what would be my next course of action ?

I have a 2002 year model trailer, it has a Duo Therm Quick Cool High Efficiency by Dometic. Because the fan motor would not start by itself, it popped the breaker after a couple minutes the first time I turned it on this year. I took the top off the unit and give the fan a little spin and it would then run. Once again after a few minutes the breaker popped. I changed the capacitor for the fan but it does the same thing. Could it be the armature in the motor causing the problem? Any sug

Amana heat pump emergency heat comes on but blower will not start. The call for heat comes in and the heating element(s) glow red for a few seconds and then there is a "click" and the heating strips de-energize. The blower fan motor doesn't come on, however the squirrel cage fan spins freely. The heat pump stopped working several years ago, but I just used the emergency heat option for heating solution. The squirrel cage fan motor was replaced about 3-4 years ago.

Trane a/c- capacitor had burnt wire and connector fell off. Replaced connector. Fan starts up but as power increases, within a minute or so, it stops and just whines. Capacitor does look like it is kinda burnt on two of the three leads. Is that most likely what is causing the fan to not keep running?


It is a strong possibility. If the capacitor is failed, the fan will eventually overheat. If you do not have a capacitor tester, then take the capacitor to a local A/C supply house or contractor. They can test it for you and offer a replacement if it ... Air Conditioners
