Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?
Fan does not work
Check resistance through the fuse and the actual control switch and see if it's registering anything. Usually wiring doesn't go bad unless it gets a nick in it or is overloaded and burns out. If it all looks good then check to see if you're getting voltage to the fan motor when turned on. Be sure not to let leads or live wires go to ground or touch you, it can hurt you or your wallet worse. That should be a good start, tell me if it works out.

The light fixture needed to be repaired. It never worked when I bought the house. New light bulbs didn't worked. I replaced the two ceramic light switches that had corroded wiring and reconnected blue to black and white to white. I have a dual wall switch that controls the fan and light. Now the light only works when the fan is on. The light on my other identical fan works without the fan on. Is the wiring problem in the fan or switch. The switches are different.
If its a duel switch that controls lights, and the fan seperately. sounds like the power for the lights is going directly to the fan, and therefore making the lights work also. also check out switch, make sure power is only going to the lights, with ... Air Conditioners

I have a Mitsubishi split air conditioner; Model number: MSH-18NA. When I turn the air conditioner on with the remote control, sometimes it works normally, sometimes it doesn't. When it is not working properly, sometimes the fan turns continuously and sometimes it doesn't. No matter whether the fan is working or not, no cold air comes out. The green operation light is blinks and the indicator light is off. It looks like the outdoor unit is not working because the outdoor fan is not moving. Wha

The fan on the condensing unit isnt working it works for awhile and then shuts off,then the compressor starts to work by itself really hard and the whole condenser heats up really fast so I turn off the breaker and start it again but the fan makes and electric humm and I have to push start the blades to get it to spin and then it will work for awhile and then the fan will stop again after about an hour and then same thing happens
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
The fan in the bunk does not work. I have a 1997 379 Peterbilt. Bench tested fan and it works. The two wire that go to the fan were tested with a test light . One wire the test light is very bright , the other wire test light is dull. If i run a wire with a ground to the wire with duill light the fan works with air but only on high but cannot turn off with switch on the dash. Is it the switch in the bunk or what can it be.

I don't know what model my fan is, but it's only 3 years old and suddenly two days ago the light and fan quit working. We replaced the light switch on the wall-nothing. Took apart whatwe could of the fan to look at the wiring-all intact. We then replaced the battery in the remote and it instantly worked fine again. After putting it all back together it stayed lit with the fan working for about two hours at which time I turned it off using the wall switch. I immediately tried turning it back on a

Installed the Altura 56" fan (56ATR), worked fine at all speed until we put on the light. Everything worked fine for about 10 minutes, then the fan stopped working, but the light stayed on. Kept trying to get the fan to start at any speed but no luck. Seems as though something may have burned out after we installed the light.
Both the fan and light have a common connection .. usually all the white wires are connected at one wire nut .. check to see if the fan wire has pulled out of the wire nut ... remove the wire nut and re-tighten it .. pull on each wire to make sure ea ... Air Conditioners
Recently moved into my mothers home (deceased0. Her Carries central air unit is 2-3 years old. worked 2 weeks prior to moving in, but has not worked since. The unit would buzz a th the fan motor, but would not spin. The capacitor was swollen, so I replaced it. The fan now works, but is not cooling.

I have a Honeywell oscillating quiet cooling tower fan that was bought two years ago. Loved it, till yesterday it just stopped working. the oscillating feature still moves, but the fan does nothing. the buttons still beep and turn on and change while plugged in, and it sounds like something is working...but obviously not everything cause the fan doesn't fan. Is it fixable? Should I send it to the manufacturer? Or just eat the cost and buy a new fan?
Could be fixable but until someone determines the problem there is no way of knowing if it is fixable. Could be a broken wire between the selector switch and the motor or the motor itself could be bad.When you are trying to operate it does the ... Air Conditioners
I have two Harbor Breeze Triton (Item #233576) ceiling fans purchased approximately 3 years ago. Neither have pulls, so the only way I can change the fan speed or dim the light is with the remote (the light can be shut on or off with a light switch, and I can also turn the fan off completely, if I want). A few weeks ago, one of the remotes stopped working...replaced the battery, etc., and nothing worked. I took the remote from the lesser used fan, changed the dips, and use it for that fan

I just had a new Dometic roof air conditioner installed it works good for about 10 min. the the fan stops and makes a humming noise .After about 10 min the air will work ok again. The repair tech saya the fan moter is drawing about four time the amps lt should. He is going chang the fan capacitor or fan motor. Is this a problem with Dometic AC units?

After using the Bionaire BSF1411AR-CN fan for 2 days, the fan blades no longer rotate. The fan speed indicator lights only blink. I have tried powering off and on, but that doesn't work. The oscillator partially works: it oscillates for about a 1/4 cycle before stopping. Is the fan motor burned out already, or is there something I can do to solve the problem?

This is a heating and cooling through the wall heat pump. It works normally when heating is selected - the heat pump runs and both speeds of the fan blow warm air. But nothing runs when cooling is selected. In other words the unit works normally when "High Heat" or "Low Heat" is selected but nothing runs when "High Cool", "Low Cool" or "Fan Only" is selected. The position of the Fan Cycle Switch has no effect - behavior of the unit is the same in both positions of the Fan Cycle Switch.
