Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Compressor turns on but not the fan.

\015 My most excellent AC stopped working one day. When we switch the knob to FAN ONLY nothing happens though you can feel some vibrations happening within. When we switch the knob to COOL, you can hear the air compressor kick on and the coils get cold. (*thanks)\015

Jeannine, on this model there is one motor that turns both the evaporator and condensor fans. First you want to check to see if there is any obstruction preventing the fans from turning. There is also a dual capacitor that gives this motor a kick start. If this goes bad the motor will not run, just humm. Hopefully it is just your capacitor that has failed but it could be the motor itself. Part number for the capacitor is 16-05-00710-109. Part number for the motor is 50-11-t26p0-050. Usually a bad capacitor will show signs of leaking or bulging, but not always...Catriver..post back

I have a Haier HWR05XC7 that will NOT work. The compressor turns on, but the fan won't work. The fan moves freely because I tried moving it with a screwdriver, but when I turn the unit on, the compressor kicks on, but no fan. I have been fighting with this thing for weeks and am about to chuck it out of the window. Also, the red error light stays on and there is nothing in the manual on how to troubleshoot it (other than making sure it is turned on and plugged in!). No support from Haier or Circ

I have a air compressor that I know the fan is bad in the outside unit. The compressor is not turning on. Yesterday the only way that the fan would run is with a push, now today it won't run at all. If the fan is not at full strength, will the compressor turn on. I want to know if I need a new air conditoner or is there hope in fixing this unit...

There is definitely hope in fixing this one as long as its just the fan not working. Carrier can easily fix it for you if you want. If you are looking for any more specific information, I would be glad to help but I will need the model number of the ... Carrier Air Conditioners

I have a Dometic rooftop Air conditioner in my RV When I turn it to low medium or high the fan run the same speed and when I turn it to AC it will run for about 5 min then the fan will shut off but the compressor keeps running I turn it off for a min or so and everythings comes back on. 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.

5,200 BTU unit. Compressor and fan both work when first turned on, then compressor quits after 5-10 minutes of operation. Won't turn on again even after 5-minute fan-on cool down. Process repeats after AC unit has been turned off for 10 minutes and re-started. Is this worth trying to fix, or should I replace the whole unit?

This could be just a simple fix of cleaning the condenser coils. If semi-clogged, it can cause higher than normal pressures and cause the compressor to cut out on it protector. Check it out. ... Air Conditioners

My fedders aircon compressor does not turn on again whenever its thermostat turns it off. what i had to do is unplugged the power cord and turn it on again to work. i already replaced the capacitor. what i observed is that the big normally open rely does not switch on. maybe a board problem? if i turn it off and turn it on again, only the fan rotates and not the compressor. i had to unplug the power and put it back again for the compressor to run again.

You have a time delay build in on the pc board of 3 minutes. If it takes longer than 3 minutes check your compressor overload protector, Maybe the compressor is overheating, check your coils for proper air flow. ultimately if the compressor checks ok ... Fedders A6X05F2D Air Conditioner

Turn the unit on, the fan runs, and when the compressor tries to start the fan slows down and the compressor will not run. After a few seconds the fan speeds back up. I put an amp meter on the compressor lead and when it tried to start I registeres 41 amps. Is this a compressor or capacitor problem?

Sounds like you have a bad capacitor, if it's not tripping the breaker it doesn't sound like the compressor is drawing LRA unless the breaker is oversized for the condenser. ... Air Conditioners

I have an Amana Prestige A/C compressor that is not turning on when my fan turns on to cool the house. I replaced the capacitor because my old one was bubbled up at the top. After I replaced it, it still did not kick back on when I turned on the A/C unit from inside. There is an override switch on the compressor that turns the compressor on manually but does not stay on.

My AC My Compressor keeps kicking off. I turn the unit on, the fan works. The Heat works but the compressor turns in about 60 sec. If I unplug the unit and turn it back on, it comes on but the compressor shuts off again after 60 sec. Can this be from dirt in the coils? They have some build up. Any other causes?

Compressor does not run. On turning the AC on, the compressor does not run. The blower fan does though. Checking the relay panel, the relay for the compressor does not engerize. a temporary solution is to put a switch across the contacts the compressor on and then the thermostate is set so that the AC should work, the fan comes on and the unit works as usual. The only exception is that the temperature must be controlled manually.
