Question about Heating & Cooling
You must be having some very cold weather. Heat pumps shut the fan off when the temp. of the coils on the outside hit a certain temperature. That is to increase the pressure inside the unit to get more heat out of it. Your unit also goes into a defrost when ever it gets that cold also. But the compressor turns off also.
Now if your fan never comes on need to check the motor with a ohm meter. And check the capacitor it is a dual one meaning fan and compressor. One side can be out so need to check that also. Turn power off to the outside unit just pull the safety disconnect on the side of the house. Take the capacitor out ohm out the C side and the fan side. You will notice the Herm side meaning compressor. My guess is motor is bad. But I'm not there so concentrate your efforts there. Let me know how it goes okay. Ken
