Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?
The fan in the outside part of my AC doesn't run
If it is the compressor at fault it will be at the discretion of the manufacturer as to what they replace. I would suggest you contact an aircon engineer who can help you diagnose the problem because a professional will have to be in touch with the manufacturer. As you are getting in touch with the contractor who supplied the equipment that will be the correct route to go. Hope this helps.
On most air cons there is a time delay before the outside unit starts and LG are no exception. This function means that erratic power supplies wont kill the compressor (outside bit). If the internal fan runs for a few minutes and then the trip goes then it sounds like you have a faulty compressor. This tends to be a scenario for a failed compresssor. What you can try is putting the unit on FAN ONLY (no cooling) and see if the power stays on. \015\012\015\012If you are more technically competent you could isolate the power to the compressor on the external unit (AFTER ISOLATING THE POWER TO THE WHOLE SYSTEM). And then try putting it on cooling to see if the external fan works. If the trip is not thrown then you have a faulty compressor. \015\012\015\012I would also like to point out that most A/C manufacturers offer a three year parts warranty so you may have some sort of cover depending on the age of your unit. In which case get an aircon guy out who knows what they are doing (personal reccomendation is always a good starting point).\015\012\015\012Hope this helps.

The outside unit is no0t able to start the fan spinning on its own. I have been able to manually engage the outside fan by turning the unit off, turning it on, and then manually spinning the fan when it starts up. The unit will then engage the fan and runs fine until the next cycle when it cannot start the fan on its own again. Can you tell me what part needs to be replaced and about how much it will cost?

I have an Interthem / Nordyne heat pump model E2EB-015HA. On the outside unit the fan does not turn on when the unit comes on. If I spin the fan it will come on and will run well. With the unit off the fan blades spin easily. I suspect the capacitor, but can not find a part number for it. The capacitor itself is rusty and any writing is unreadable. Please help.

I have a Coleman 5T 13 Seer Heat Pump. When the unit is running there is a lot of vibration (outside unit) and I hear a tinny sound (possibly like the fan hitting something). This seems to be worse during the hottest part of the day. When the unit had its last service they said it was low on freon and recharged it and it seems to be since then that the problem has occurred. Is it possible that the unit is overcharged? And if so is this dangerous, i.e. could it cause permanent damage or immi

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.

My compressor unit outside runs and cools Freon but the inside blower has a problem running. the model # is 2TEE3F31A1000AA. The fan control, in fan run control mode, shows a bright green for the fan LED and the CFM selection LED varies with the rotational speed of the fan. The motor tries to start showing , initially, a jerky back & forth movement. It squeaks some and may, or may not, start rotating. If it starts the CFM LED goes bright/on no flicker and the motor runs briefly (5 seconds) then
