SOURCE: fan not blowing

Even when the power is off at the unit outside the thermostat will supply power to the contactor of the outside unit. This may give a hum or buzz as you stated. If when the power is on to the outside unit the fan tries to start but only hums the motor may be bad. Does the compressor start and run?

Why does the fan keep running on my Kitchenaid refrigerator?


The fan is supposed to run all the time and the compressor is also supposed to be hot. If the frig is working properly, you are just paranoid.

The side door is getting hot


Hello,
Pull the unit out away from the wall. Remove the bottom cardboard or metal cover that covers the compressor area. Assure that the compressor fan is working usually when the fan is not working the sides of the unit will start to heat. If the compressor fan is not working shut the unit off until the compressor cools. I have used a box fan while leaving the cover off on a unit to keep the compressor cooling while I had to wait for the new compressor fan motor to come in. DO NOT RUN THE REFRIGERATOR IF THE FAN IS NOT WORKING UNLESS YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO KEEP THE COMPRESSOR COOL like a fan constantly blowing on the compressor. If you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future. Thanks

I have a samsung air conditioner - model AQV24NS and after 10- 15 mins it shuts down both red & green lights start flashing. The only wayi can get it to work again is to shut off the main power suply...


Please check outdoor unit. Compressor or fan motor getting high amps due to overheat. Clean condenser coil. If still problem, replace running capacitor. If out door fan less rpm replace fan capacitor. In some unit 2 in 1 capacitor is there. So replace one capacitor will rectify fan and compressor problem. Thanks. Helpful?

Getting very hot in the middle betweenthe fridge and freezer


The condenser fan located on the bottom near the compressor is not circulating well enough to keep the compressor at a good operating temperature causing the compressor to shut down for longer periods of time until cool enough to run again. Clean the coils good and replace condenser fan and you will be fine. The fan works as a cooler for the compressor. Imagine working in the yard on a hot day wearing a mask over your nose and mouth. Your body shuts down quicker because you have to take more rest due to the restriction of fresh air. Same applies to the compressor. Hope this helps. Rick

OUT SIDE UNIT SHUT DOWN IN HEAT MODE, WHEN YOU FIRST TURN IT ON IT RUNNS FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS THEN BOTH THE COMPRESSOR AND FAN SHUT OFF FOR APROX 3 MINUTES {LARGE LINE STARTS TO GET WARM} AFTER 3 MINUTES...


Hi, You have a heat-pump, this I do no. The reason it is shutting down from how you have explained it to me, is the compressor is shutting down due to high pressure and it is going off on the internal overload. When the compressor cools down, it starts back up and runs again. As for the large line getting warm, this is normal for a heat-pump as in the summer this line will be cold. The reversing valve changes over the flow of freon and the flow goes in the other direction. Back to you're problem. The service tech is bleeding off freon because he is apparently showing with his gauges it is over charged? This will cause it to draw to many amps and shut off. Has this compressor been changed out recently? Or maybe freon added due to a leak? He is doing it because he is thinking it is over charged. It may be some if it runs for a few hours after it is bled off. Did you notice if he clamped his meter around a compressor wire to check the running load amps? If so, that's what he is doing. I would say this unit had work done on it recently or correct me if I am wrong. The condenser fan motor should not shut off with the compressor, it should run all the time even if compressor shuts off on internal overload, believe me!! The fan is wired separate from compressor. The only time this fan shuts off when heat is on, is when it goes into defrost, and compressor keeps running. For the compressor to run for only 30 seconds and shut off, and then back on in 3 min, on for 5 seconds and off again, sounds to me this unit is short cycling due to being under charged. It is strange it runs after he bleeds freon off for a 1/2 a day. As far as the fan shutting down to, and I would like you to get back to me, if the compressor was changed at some point, the fan wiring was connected to the contactor load side, so it shuts down when compressor shuts down. One fan lead is on the wrong terminal of the contactor. If this is the original compressor, this could have happened at the factory, I have seen this before. The tech should have seen this!! Going on and off this fast, would not cause the compressor to get hot enough to kick off and cool fast enough to come back on that fast! Sounds like low pressure. I don't like to knock other techs work, but this unit is not being checked properly. Without me being there to install my gauges and amprobe, all I can do is tell you he is wrong with his solution, way off. Heat-Pumps are much more tempermental then a split a/c only.What to do is call them back out and request a different service tech, or the service manager. This will be no charge to you! You should be reimbursed for the last call. E.P.A. allows us to only loose minimus amounts of freon installing our gauges also. It is forbidden to bleed it into the air. He could be fined $25,000 the 1st time!! It also sounds as though you have a problem in the defrost board that would cause this. Please call them back out and don't feel bad about it. This is you're right! Tell them about the fan also as if it is going off on high pressure which I think not, the fan would stay on. I know this is long but I want you to understand what is going on. I do this for a living and know whats up! I am a Licensed contractor in this field. Please keep me posted. I will be waiting to hear back.
Sincerely,

A/C FAN MOTOR SHUT OFF, BUT CONDENSER KEEP ON RUNNING


The condenser fan might be going out. It'll start when cool but shuts off as soon as it starts to warm up.

Most Likely Low on Freon. Low Pressure switch shuts That Compressor Off.
