The condenser fan motor should read 1.5 to 3.0 k(thousand) ohms across the motor windings. Also, check to see if you have 12v DC at the fan. Post back your results.

Pure pro fan motor

compressed air , you might try bringing it to a electric motor repair shop or a auto shop and ask real nice if they would be nice enough to give your fan a shot of air. a weed blower will work also but not even close to the job of compressed air. last resort is to take it apart totaly and use soapy water and a scrub brush. do not get the motor wet ! and oil the bearings on the motor with zoom spout oil #D01.. and you can milk your favorite fan out for many,many years .. this way is like cheating death! ... jay the pool pump motor repair guy in longwood fl

Compaq presario C 700 fan runs non stop

Make sure the air vents are clear when it is operating, also use a can of compressed air to blow out the dust from the vents and fan. This should make it cool more efficiently and the fan shouldnt run as much afterward.

Hampton Bay Stopped Suddenly while running

The motor may just need a good blowing out. If you can remove the fans motor and use compressed ait it can be cleaned thoroughly. First tun the motor by hand to see if it spins freely. It may have a dried up bearing locking up the fans shaft to the motor causing it to have stop. YThe bearings have a flat colored seal which can be popped off to relube then snap the seal back in

Slow, over heating, fan runs non stop

Are you running any games or CPU-intensive applications that run 24/7?

1) I suggest you first download CPUID's Hardware Monitor from here:
Install and run. It will you the temperature of your CPU (including all cores, if you have a multi-core CPU).
CPU temp should not be higher than 80-85 C when running CPU-intensive applications and about 50 C when idle

2) Also, you may want to check if the fan is dirty. To do this, turn your laptop OFF and unplug the AC charger. Remove the bottom cover and locate the fan. Blow compressed air from a compressed air can. Be sure to remove all dust and lint. Replace the bottom cover and plug the AC charger back. Restart the laptop.

3) After your laptop restarts and loads Windows, open the "Task Manager" by pressing CONTROL-ALT-DELETE and choosing "Task Manager" from the menu. Then, click on the tab labeled "PROCESSES" and click TWICE on the column labeled "CPU". The application running with a "99" or so under CPU column should be the "System Idle Process". If not, please report back the applications you have on the top of the "Image Name" column.

Please, report back so that I can be of further assistance if needed

Fan stops

The cooling fan for the condenser is probably running, getting hot and seizing up. Check to see if the fan is free spinning after it stops. Take a probe and try to spin it manually. If it turns freely, then it could be going bad with it's electrical windings, the internal coils that create the magnetic field that spins the rotor of the fan motor. I suspect it is seizing up, however, once a fan seizes up, it usually stays that way and won't spin even after it cools down. It could be a capacitor that is going bad and not starting the fan after it gets hot. A capacitor is a small round shaped can type with usually 2 wires hooked in series with the motor it is trying to start. That is what it does, help start the device (compressor or fan motor). Good luck.Ken from Henderson NV.
