Question about Emerson Quiet Kool 12HT13 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Compressor turns on but not the fan.

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)

    thanks for the reply.
    OK. i have taken the front off. When i turn it to LOW-COOL the fan turns slowly and the compressor kicks on. when i turn it to HIGH-COOL, the fan stops spinning. The fan starts and stops in LOW-COOL and the compressor turns on & off. so now i have it on LOW-COOL with a fan in front to draw the cooler air into the room. i am not sure it is doing much good.

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

Just quit. Worked fine one day. Next day went to turn it on and nothing happened. Fan is little over a year old.


Control switch, circuit breaker, or loose wire are main suspect.
Rarely does a motor just stop working.

Check circuit breaker.
Open control switch and test for power and check for loose connections.
Install ordinary on-off switch and see if function resumes.
Check wire connections at fan.

I have a question on Coleman AC


First of all, an extension cord and GFI receptacle to run an AC unit will almost always blow either GFI or circuit breaker or both due to large current draw from AC unit. If an extension cord needs to be used, keep it as short as possible, and use the heavier gauge that is approved for AC use. What happens when you use an extension cord, is the voltage drop that will happen by the time the AC gets power. With any voltage drop, the amperage draw increases, so a 15 amp circuit breaker will most likely trip. Nowadays, all AC units are wired with a minimum 12 gauge wire rated for 20 amps.
You say nothing is happening now, is that to say that the fan only mode doesn't work on the AC unit either?

I have a Rudd AC unit Model UEAB-1410BF5. The AC works, the fan works, but the heat will not come on. It was working, then one day stopped. When you try and get it to come on nothing happens. Thought it...


Remove red and white wire from t-stat and connect if it starts then it is t-stat.
if not jump out at furnace where wires connect to it.
could be an inducer motor problem?

Blower works sometimes, sometimes it wont. Moving the blower fan switch has no effect. Suddenly, it will work with all fan speeds. Then it quits working again. Nothing.....no vent, A/C, Heat,...


Sounds like the switch,I have had the same happen. Won't work on 1or2 but 3-4 worked fine. The next day 1-2 worked....? With out a meter to check it will be guess work.
