Sounds like some how the fan wiring got on the line side of the magnetic contactor. Unless the contactor is still engaged in that case the compressor would be on also. When I say line side I am talking about where the power comes into the unit from the house and connects to the contactor. If it is within a year old maybe two the installer should stand behind the installation of unit. Contact them and explain the problem. Let me know how it turned out. Ken

Sir/madam,
If the inside unit (evaporator) is turned off absolutely.
The condensing unit must be turn off outside because the power
are derived comes from the evaporator.
Possible it seems on the cut out stage inside and remain the power still on
Otherwise theres somebody tamper the connection?

Fan cable consist of 3 wires
1 Common line
2 Start /stop line***Change the connection of this wire where it located, To On/ Off switch of the
evaporator inside unit
3 Ground green line/Earth

note: you can get all that wires inside the power supply in evaporator area.

If still under warranty inform the manufacturer

I have an airconditioner a Kelvinator KSR20C Split system


Your condensor fan motor has more than likely gone out. This fan should run at all times when the unit is on. Since the fan isn't working then the motor must have gone out.

Fan runs continously, feels like heat. Turn off at meter box.


Is the fan on the outside unit running continuously, or the fan on the inside unit? Please explain the problem in more detail.

Ac fan on, blowing air, but not cold


Check outside unit if unit and compressor are running feel the large line to see if it is cold. If compressor is running and line is not cold possible charge problems. You may have a capacitor problem outside. they go out quite often. You can change this yourself, Open up outside unit and the cap is the silver bullet with terminals out the top. Bad cap can cause compressor to not operate and also the fan. You need to clean the coil inside or at leat check the coil to see if it is clean. You can clean theis with a toilet brush do not go against the coil bit brush with the fins. You may need to call a service tech but try these options first. russ

Sharp split system, cutting out


If this is running in A/C mode, then I bet you have a low refrigerant charge. The compressor is dropping out on low suction pressure if it's cutting in and out every 5-10 minutes or so. If it takes hours, then it's likely a different problem.

Reply back and I can help you (been in that business for over 30 years.).

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?

Goodman split unit that heats instead of cools


Hi, Could be a run capacitor on the fan motor. They usually swell up and or leak when they go bad. If not, the only real way to test them it with a specific capacitor tester. A new capacitor would be cheaper. Make sure that the outside unit is disconnected from power before opening it up, try to spin the fan blade by hand. If it doesn't spin freely it may need oiled if possible. See above solution. Your problem is the fan motor though so if this don't do it, It will have to be replaced. If this helps, Please rate my solution. Thanks, kstfas
