Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?
FAN ISNT TURNING ?
You won't see much when you take the front off just the evaporator coil and air output ducting. You'll need to remove the whole back cover to get at the workings. The evaporator and condenser fan are one motor with a double shaft. the double shafted motor may have dry bearings - they are oil-lite bearings, sintered bronze set in a felt holder. there may be a small capacitor on the outside of the motor. with the back cover off, locate the wires going to the motor. if you have a meter to read voltage, proceed. If you have no meter STOP, visual inspections won't get you very far. the motor probably is a multispeed motor. If you are squeemish about taking voltage measurements don't go any further. Get someone with knowledge of electricity.

Does the fan turn freely or is it hard to turn by hand? If it is hard to turn the fan motor may need to be replaced. If it isn't hard to turn then check the fan capacitor. You can test it with a multimeter or take it to a heating and air supply and g ... Goodman CLT36AER36 Air Conditioner

Turn it to the fan only side and the fan will run for 5 min then shut off a min later it comes back on then back off and on in fan only side.

I have a ceiling fan with lights, last night the fan was turned on for the first time since summer, the remote is over the light switch. The remote to turn on the lights is used normally. Since turning the fan on last night there is now a humming noise even without the lights or fan on. Is this a problem with the fan or remote. pleas help the noise is low but consistent.
There is a small relay in the ceiling fan causing this noise, try turning off all power to the ceiling fan and allow it to set for a couple of minutes. Turn it back on and see if it goes away. If it does great. if not, it may not be worth the repair ... Hunter Air Conditioners
I have a Dometic 579 Series Brisk Air AC. The model Number is 57915.531. When I turn the fan on, nothing happens. If I reach up and turn the wheel blower the fan will start up and everything works.

Hi, I have a goldStar GA 1866VHR split Airconditioner, (5050w cooling and 5040w heating capacity). Today I noticed that compressor/condenser unit was still running after I turned off the aircond: from the remote control. The fan unit turned off as normal.

After about 2-3 hrs I turned on the isolation switch and the compressor/condenser unit came "on" stright away without the fan unit. Went inside and turned on fro

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. I was able to turn on the house circulation fan and since it was a warm day today I also tested the A/C side and it worked fine. The inductor motor and fan were replaced last year. 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

Our Furnace doesnt seem to be working correct. We an: Air Pro BGM075128 and is Natural Gas. It will turn on when we turn up the thermostat.. but we never get any heat through the vents. There is a switch on the side that is "on" and one that is "fan". If we turn on the "fan" only cold air gets blown through. It looks like this is for cool air. So, if we leave the fan off and the "on" swith on, we get the furnace firing up, but no heat ever comes through the vents. I tested out the thermo

Hello, I have a Heater/Furnace problem. I have a Carrier 58RAV095-16 Natural Gas Furnace. My furnace keeps restarting it's heating process. Upon turning the heater on, a small fan will engage and run for about 60 seconds, then the fan turns off and the gas engages and the igniter clicks and you hear the gas combust and the flames spew out onto the heating rods(?) and after a minute or so, the big fan will turn on and begin circulating air throughout the house. Sounds all good so far? Well

Turned on AC was running fine. 30 minutes later began to hear a strange noise. Opened AC/Furnance closet & heard a sound best described as air letting out of a tire. It seemed to be coming from copper pipe. Minute later sound stopped & air was suddenly hot. As if AC was turned on fan not cold. Went outside & neither fan nor motor was running. Turned fan manually. Ran for about a minute then stopped. Outside unit was making what could best be described as a buzzing sound.
