Question about Honeywell Air Conditioners

1 Answer

Due to excess dust my honeywell commercial grade stopped working. I sprayed a lubricant near the fan mechanism to no avail. I also tried a can of compressed air to blow out the motor housing. This happened yrs. ago, and with a hair dryer's use I got it to work. Now, however the blades rotor mechanism just won't turn. I would appreciate any input as I DO NOT and CANNOT take this apart. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

The only thing is your motor has gone out due to bearing failure, and seizing up on the shaft and hitting the stator.

What is the problem of my panasonic air conditioner when the compressor stops working and it picks up again

The compressor is most likely overheating, due to a restriction of airflow in the unit. Make sure the fans on both sides are rotating as they should and that the heat exchanger coils are not clogged with lint, dust, hair, or something else that would block airflow. Make sure any air filters are clean as well.

If the fan blowers are trying to move air and there is actually air flowing through the coils on both sides, you may have bigger problems, either electrical or mechanical or both. You could have developed a leak, and a resulting loss of refrigerant. A repair estimate should be sought out from a competent shop. 25361753-awph1b3yhxdrnyqdcrsrelkr-2-0.jpg

How to stop the fan of rth6300 thermostat

If your fan will not stop, it could be caused by several things. It could be the contacts inside of the thermostat sticking. It could be caused by the fan mode switch in on versus auto. It could be a sticking contact on the fan control card in air handler or a stuck contact in the fan control head if it is a X13 or ECM motor.
First, easiest way to see if stuck contact on the thermostat, gently tap the thermostat, this sometimes adgitates the contact and allows it to open. If this works you need a new thermostat.
Next problem is checked on the themostat fan mode switch, it should be in auto. I have had several customers who inadvertantly pressed the fan mode switch and did not know they had done it.
If the fan is still running, the problem is in the air handler fan control card. There is high voltage in and near the fan control card and I would recommend getting a professional to check it out. The voltages in most thermostat is about 24 volts and even though it can tingle you it is not generally harmful. The high voltage you get into the air handler can either be 240 volts and in commercial unit it can be 440 volts.
Hope this helps.

Kenmore air conditioner fan noise

This can be due to faulty bearings on the fan motor or if the fan leaf is rubbing on the outer frame.
Remove the covers and manually turn the fan motor , if noise is heard then USE SOME LOW GRADE OIL ON THE BEARINGS , it will lessen the noise. If not replace the bearings/motor as the case is seen.

The squirl-cage fan (MSZ-A15NA) clogs up with mold once a year, which drastically deminishes airflow. I have had the dealer technician come out and disassemble enough of the unit to gain access to the fan...

Instead of spraying vinegar, i would say spray wd-40 spray.That will keep the fan and its internal assembly clean and not let the fan movement get tight and rusted.It will not allow the parts to get tight and rusted.-------- But once you spray wd-40, you have to let it remain there for 30 minutes to 1 hour, then turn the unit on .The wd-40 spray takes time to show its effect.--------- The wd-40 spray is easily available at local walmart and homedepot stores or at appliance parts repairs store.---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have carrier central airconditioners (4) in my house. The fan motors on the outside with the compressor occasionally squeel and hang up - and the fan stops or won't start spinning. I can usually free it...

Dear friend! It's not lubrication problem. All motors pre-lubricated.Weaken capacitor. Replace capacitor immediately. Don't practice to spin with screw driver. It's not safety.Thanks.

The wall mounted thermostat in a condominium unit (central HVAC in a high rise) is defective. I need to know 1. how to take out the existing thermostat (Honeywell T6069A1008) and 2. what replacement is...

i think you may have a fan/control board problem, if the thermostat turns on the fan, and you dont touch it, then the fan stops in a short time...
plus the fan is connected to a control board, like i said those thermostats hardly go bad...

My fan won't come up tp speed. I checked all woring and everything is ok. I took the fan blades off and the motor comes up to speed but once I put the blades back on the fan barely turns??

First thing I would do is remove fan blades again and carefully clean them with a non-petroleum based cleaner. Wipe to remove any small bits of dust,dirt or pet hair. Most units like this use a very small motor and it dosn't take much to slow them down.Some as small as 1/20 H.P. Next I would check to see if there are any oiling ports on top of motor.Some do some don't. If yours does it should have a plastic or rubber plug. Remove plug and use 2-3 drops of fine grade oil,such as 3-in-1 oil.Reinstall plug and see if that helps. If no oil ports are available you can use a aresol cleaner rated for use on electrical equipment. If you can get to them I would also clean,spray and/or lube around blade shaft ends,wiping off all extra.Hope this helps.Thanks

Outside compressor fan won't spin without a nudge


either you can lubricate it by spraying wd40 on the bushings. Although usually fan motors are permanently lubricated there are still dust particles that get through and cause it not to spin.
