First question first, NO! this is a simple problem and a common one to fix, just change out the outside contactor coil, the contactor has a thin layer of silver on them to prevent them from arching and sticking together, over time this thin layer burns through and stick the contactor and wont let go, till you replace the contactor coil,(20.00) 24-volt 40 voltage amp coil! YOU CAN DO THIS after you kill the power to the unit.!Thank-you-very-much!

Goodman package heatpump blower motor contant running


check your themostat fan mode switch to see if it in on or auto. It should be in auto. If this does not stop indoor fan motor, (it may take up to 2 minutes for the fan to stop, preprogrammed shutoff in the thermostat and fan control cards may make you think the fan has not stopped ) If this does not stop the fan the fan control board in your air handler has a green wire shorting to 24 volt signal in the theromostat wire or the contact on the blower control card is stuck and will need replaced.

Goodman heatpump fan runs, condenser wont start


Either the condenser fan has bad bearings, or it has a defective fan capacitor.
Turn off the breaker to the outside unit.
Spin the fan blade by hand.
If the fan blade spins easily and will spin a few revolutions with no problem the fan bearings are good.
If not, replace the fan motor due to bad bearings.
I am pretty sure you fan motor is bad because with a bad capacitor the fan motor will not get up to speed and may just sit and overheat.
I'm leaning toward a bad fan motor.

2005 envoy the fan wont shutoff after the engines been turned off


The fan for the heater right? If so, for the autoclimate control you need to replace the blower motor countrol module. If it's manual controls, replace the blower motor resistor assembly.

My 1988 Ford Tempo's heater fan is not working. I can feel heat at the windshield vents,but the fan wont come on. I have jumped the fan speed switch with a paper clip--and blew a fuse--and checked the...


your circuit is simple--I will paste it below. suspect the blower has shorted and caused the switch to burn up. remove the blower and hotwire it to the battery to see if it works. If not, replace the blower. Then run continuity tests on the swoitch and replace switch if bad. If you have questions, please let me know. Here is procedure for taking blower out:


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION With Air Conditioning

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the glove compartment door and glove compartment by removing the retaining screws and bolts. Push the sides of the glove box in to free the drawer from dash panel.
  3. Loosen the instrument panel at the lower right hand of the glove compartment opening. This is on it necessary if the panel is in the way of the motor housing.
  4. Remove the retaining screws securing the ducting around the blower motor.
  5. Remove the clip securing the blower motor fan blade to the motor arm. Remove the fan blade from the motor.
  6. Remove the blower motor mounting plate from the evaporator case by unscrewing the retaining screws.
  7. Rotate the motor until the mounting plate clears the edge of the glove compartment opening and remove the motor.
  8. Remove the wire harness from the rear of the motor.
  9. Inspect the fan blade for broken edges or cracks. Replace if needed.

To install:
  1. Connect the wire harness to the rear of the blower motor.
  2. Install the motor into the case and secure with the retaining screws.
  3. Position and fasten the fan blade to the blower motor arm. Secure with the clip.
  4. Secure the blower motor outer housing to the duct assembly with the retaining screws.
  5. Install the instrument panel at the lower right hand side if removed earlier.
  6. Install the glove compartment door and glove compartment.
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.
  8. Run blower motors to make the motor works correctly.
Without Air Conditioning
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the right ventilator assembly.
  3. Remove the hub clamp spring from the blower wheel hub. Pull the blower wheel from the blower motor shaft.
  4. Remove the blower motor flange attaching screws located inside the blower housing.
  5. Pull the blower motor out from the blower housing (heater case) and disconnect the blower motor wires from the motor.

To install:
  1. Connect the wires to the blower motor and position the motor in the blower housing.
  2. Install the blower motor attaching screws.
  3. Position the blower wheel on the motor shaft and install the hub clamp spring.
  4. Install the air inlet duct assembly and the right ventilator assembly.

Dryer will run and heat up but will just stop after 10 minutes. any idea what would be wrong with it.


Could be a motor going bad.
Could be a bad control thermostat.
Could be a bad auto dry sensor.
Could be lint buildup around the motor and blower wheel causing the motor to overheat and shutoff.
Try a timed dry setting and see if it runs through the cycle.
If so, the auto dry sensor is bad.
If not,Could be lint.
Unplug the machine and remove the front panel and drum to check and clean lint around the motor and blower wheel.
If all these check out OK,replace the control thermostat.

Blower motor wont start


Every air conditioner is equipped with at least two motors, the compressor and the fan motor. It is possible for the fan motor to be defective and the compressor to be running. If this is the case the unit will appear to be running and may even sound "normal" but no air is blowing out the front or back of the unit. If, after removing the cover of the unit you discover the fan blade is very stiff and difficult to rotate, the fan motor should be replaced. If the fan blade turns freely the circuit powering the fan motor will require electrical troubleshooting. It may be necessary to have a qualified technician locate the cause of the problem, which may be either a problem with the capacitor, the selector switch or the motor itself.
