Question about Haier Air Conditioners

1 Answer

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 Circuit City. I plan on bringing it back if no one has a solution. Thanks a lot.

    Also, I checked the Haier website for troubleshooting, the model isn't even listed! Circuit City won't help either, so it's going back. It's past the 30 days, but I will stand there until they credit my card.

Fan stopped working


Try to turn the fan by use of a long screw driver or other object. If it feels like it is siezed or getting very hard to move then the fan motor needs replaced. If it turns freely I would replace the capacitor and if that does not solve it then replace the fan motor too! Capacitors are cheap and fan motors are $80 to $120 average!

The compressor on my air conditioner was still running, but the fan was not running causing the temperature to climb in the house. I re-started the main power and the fan worked with the compressor wants...


Shut the power off to the unit, spin the fan blade to see if it spins freely. If it doesn't spin freely, (there appears to be a little drag when you spin it),the bearings are bad, if it does spin freely, then try moving the motor shaft from side to side if there’s any play in the shaft side to side then the bearings are worn and motor needs replaced. Then, check the capacitor, if it’s bulging even slightly, the capacitor is bad and needs replaced. Most of the time people replace the capacitor if motor seems ok. If capacitor is ok, turn power on to see if the motor is getting the proper voltage, if it is and not trying to run, then the windings are probably open, the motor's bad and needs replaced.

The fan won't turn on one of my HWF05XC5's


unplug unit, remove the screws that hold on the front cover, pull off front cover and try to spin fan by hand. it should spin freely and feel smooth and take a while to stop; it should not have any play or feel rough, or stop suddenly. if any of the above problems are observed, the fan motor is bad if the compressor comes on but the fan does not. if the fan spins freely but just does not come on (and compressor does) it could also be a wiring issue. if you have no compressor or fan action, try another outlet and check to see if the breaker at the end of the cord is set to "on".

Strange straining sound


Either compressor is going bad or the fan is rubbing. There is a condensor fan that comes on only when the compressor starts. So check the fan out first to make sure that it is not rubbing or moving around. If that is not then check the compressor by letting it run for about 5 minutes then touch the top of the compressor. BE careful as it can be extremly hot that will show you one of two things either bad compressor or condensor is dirty and a garden hose with a jet blast of water will solve the problem. If that doesnt work either compressor is bad and will either need to be replaced for about 250 dollars or unit will need to be replaced
