Freezer chest not cooling but Compressor is running


Unless you have a microfarad capacitor meter, you won't be able to check the capacitor. Make sure the evaporator fan motor is running. You may be low on refrigerant.

How do i remove the blower wheel from a broan 684 bath fan


There are a number of YouTube videos that show how to replace the motor assembly on a Broan bath fan. Once you have unplugged the fan and removed the motor mounting plate you will have easy access to replace the blower wheel and/or the motor assembly.
Just go to You Tube and search on Broan

Hunter fan remote bypass


This fan uses a "ballast" to run the fan. The ballast (part #272) probably contains wiring for multiple speeds. Here is a manual that discusses the wiring- http://www.hunterfan.com/SupportDocuments/OwnersManuals/42700.pdf.
To use a wall mounted fan dimmer, you need to identify the high speed wires and connect them to the dimmer switch. This method will bypass the other speed windings and is not as power efficient.

One way to test the motor and the board is to bypass the board. You need to direct wire the motor and test to see if it comes on. Then you know the motor is good and the board is bad. Not sure exactly what board your talking about though. Condensers don't have defrost timers on them. Can u post your model no. and any pictures of the unit would help also.

Can i test run the fan motor by bypassing the capacitor


Maybe: If you can manually rotate the motor to get it started.
The capacitor is on start winding, and causes sudden release of amps that starts the motor.
There are two (or four) windings in each single phase motor.
Both receive power at same time.
One winding is the start winding, which can be considered 'low gear' on a transmission. The capacitor is on this winding and gives burst of enough power to begin rotation.
So when a motor just hums, and doesn't rotate, then the start winding and/or capacitor are suspect. Dry or worn bearings are suspect too.
The other winding is the run winding that brings motor to up to speed.
On fan motor, the run winding can have multiple connection points for selecting different speeds.

The additional wires are for a starting capacitor, not included with the motor. The easiest way to hook-up is to order the Outlet Assembly p/n 88617000 (available at Coastal Tech Supply.) The assembly includes the capacitor, connector, and shroud; and will replace the existing outlet assembly in the housing. Minor electrical work is required to remove the old assembly and install the new one.

Low and medium fan speed no longer works on our Hampton Bay fan when you pull the chain. The high speed works. Can this be fixed with a repair part?


the speed is controlled by a capacitor bank ... high speed uses no capacitors, low speed uses a small capacitor in series with the motor and medium speed uses a larger capacitor ... the pull chain switch selects which capacitor is used ... so if the capacitors go bad or if the switch fails to select them then you will not have low and medium speed ... so you could have a bad speed capacitor block or a bad switch or wiring that has come loose inside the fan (that connects the capacitors) .. all are replaceable .. i would first remove the covers from the fan and check all wire connections .. check the switch to see if it operates smoothly .. then suspect the capacitor block .. if you were an electrician then you could bypass the switch to test its function but if you are not then make sure power is off while working on the fan .. you should be able to get a new capacitor block from the manufacturer .. most are similar if they will phisically fit in the fan housing and have the same connectors ..

Broan bath fan motor has bad bearings.New motor or new bearings?


The motor is usually not repairable. You can sometimes purchase the motor and fan separate but that is about it. Here is a link to a blog about replacing motors.

OK, locate the terminals on the capacitor marked "HERM"(Compressor lead), "FAN", and "COM".(common)

HERM and COM remian as they are.

The wire going to "FAN" (usually brown) will be placed on either terminal of the new capacitor. (This is the ((usually brown)) wire comming off of the fan motor.) An additional wire needs to be run from the other terminal of the new capacitor to the "COM" on the old capacior.

What you are doing is bypassing the fan side of the old capacitor but still using the compressor side of the old Cap.

The fan should have a wiring diagram on it to help identify the wires if there is no brown wire. The other two wires will be identified on the wiring diagram as well, but one typically goes to the contactor and the other to the board.
