Coleman RV Rooftop Air Conditioner - cage fan making a noise like it is hitting on something as it goes around. The motor works as it should, low and high fan and cool, the air is cold. The only thing that is a problem is the sound. We have already removed the top from the roof and the bottom cover from inside so we can see the cage fan, but cannot see what it could be hitting. Any ideas?

Problem with model CKL36-1K. When thermostat kicks on, The outside unit sounds like it starts to run normal and then starts to get louder and louder resulting in a screaching like noise. The fan does not kick on. Any ideas on what is wrong? Thanks

My Goodman GMS 90703BXA gas furnace started making higher then normal pitch sounds yesterday. The noise seems to come from the forced draft fan and it only happens in say 3 out of 10 starts so far. The fan vibration does not seem excessive. Is this a sign of an upcoming problem? I've had this furnace running without problems since mid 2004.

I. The outdoor heat-exchanger fan runs at a low speed (with a humming noise), when the home temperature is below the set-point. ii. When home temp. in high, fan runs at full speed, like normal. iii. When A/C breaker is shutoff (in main switchboard), the fan stops. Need help diagnose the problem.
It could also be the contactor; basically an electrically-controlled switch that in turn controls the compressor and the condenser fan. If it's a 220 volt motor, and one side of the contactor has very high resistance, it'll be seeing 110 volts inste ... Air Conditioners

My bonaire evaporative cooler cycles from high to low fan speeds when set in the cool mode. It works fine at the required speed setting when just the fan (no water) is selected. It also dumps water immediatly the cooling cycle is turned off rather than holding it for about 40Min as it should. Sounds like a controller problem, but I'm not sure if it would be the touch pad or the board up on the roof mounted unit.

Hello there i have a small problem with a 4 month old mitsubishi split system air con. We noticed it was not cooling as good as it has been on inspection out side i found a goanna had got in some how and jambed up the fan. Air con sounds like its working but out side fan still dose not spin thank you Brent.
Since the fan was jammed it sounds to me that the fan motor is burnt out. The info for replacement should be on the fan motor itself. Good Luck on your repairs\015\012\015\012Dave ... Air Conditioners
The ac is no longer working. Well air isnt coming out of the vents and it sounds like a bound up motor or fan. It is making a weird noise from the heater part of the unit, thats located in the garage...Where is the ac fan located and do you think this is it?
The blower for the inside the house should be located in the garage. Check there first. Pull the acess panel and feel if the motor is hot to touch. If so it may be bad blower motor. ... Air Conditioners
I have a new Salem travel trailer with Dometic products. Everything appears to work fine, but when I run my furnace and it turns on, my fan blows from my AC unit. I have owned 2 other RV's but have not had this problem. When the furnace shuts off due to temperature being met, my fan continues to blow and does not shut off. Does this sound like there is something wired incorrectly?
Not wired wrong..if furnace runs through thermostat..make sure fan is in auto position.. fan being on low ,med or high.then fan will run ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner
Hi. Just bought a new in box "LP" LWHD 1200R window air conditioner. When I went to turn it on, I got an awful loud fluttering noise coming from the front of the unit. NOT the "slinger fan" which is located in the back. The compressor is working because it will blow cold air, but the noise sounds almost like something is in there rubbing or something. Can anyone please help. It's getting warm up here! Thank you ................ Eric
