Question about Gibson Heating & Cooling

Open Question

Heat does not come out vents and fan is running on outside unit

Air and heat unit which has auxillary heat too; when unit clicks on, outside unit fan starts; after delay, some other motor starts (if it was needing air, I'd say the condenser is struggling to start) tho sluggishly; wall Honeywell thermostat says 'heating' but no air ever comes thru the vents to heat our home. It smelled like something burning at 4am (but no smoke or specific site found for this smell). we turned it off. (May be of significance or not, altho we've had colder nites lately, it seemed to me that our unit ran nearly all the time; I'd be awakened for some reason and notice how it's running-- and wait, wait, wait until it shut off; but before I'd fall back to sleep, it would already be running again (and heating/blowing); I just thought it might be due to colder outside, but it did seem excessive.

    Robert and Rob, thanks for the suggestions -- helpful; to the other one who replied, thank you too, tho I said 'no' (not helpful) as we'd realized it has to do with the motor on the inside blower.

It sounds like the blower motor has burnt up.(the one inside) The unit running for a few minutes then shutting off, is due to the high pressure/temperature safeties. When you removed the panels, did you notice any fan running?

SOURCE: bad smell from ac unit in my house

does it smell like literally , dirty socks?if so it is dirty sock syndrome, a plague of heat pumps for years. if it smells like an electrical melting or burning of wires then time to call a pro.it could be a weak capacitor or a weak fan motor. if it is dirty sock syndrome then its the microbes that thrive when temps are middle temps and reproduce when temps are hot and cold in intermittent days. hot one day and cold the next equals call for cool then call for heat and hot steam from heated coils cause s bacteria to grow and microbes to spread across coil. when you switch back it causes the smell.if the coil is clean you can spend a chunk of money on sanitizers but best bet is to run it cool for hot weather and hot for cool weather. the transitional periods are what create the smell. avoid semi cool and semi hot periods. this condition is common to acs from all brands . lots of stuff on the internet about dirty sock syndrome

SOURCE: HEAT PUMP/AIR CONDITIONER UNIT SMELLS ONLY WHEN AIR IS ON

Not sure what the smell...smells like.  My guess is dirt or dust near the heating elements.  These will cause a burning smell.  Sometimes insects even get into the act..building webs.
You will have to clean that area out...sometimes a large blower or vac can dislodge the dust.

Hello, if the compressor is running on the outside unit and the fan is not either you have a bad capacitor or a bad fan motor, if the fan starts with a push then your capacitor is bad, if it does not the motor is shot.

Unit quits heating while it's running, especially when outside temperature is 32 or below


the unit CANNOT heat at lower than 33 degrees, so expect auxillary heat to kick in.

Heatpump r-22 rudd system,unit runs starts out heating then compressor stops in middle of heating ,this unit has a out side air temp. sensor just wondering if possible bad board or not


If compressor stops in middle, check the following.
1.Thermostat setting must be minimum +3 degree than your room temp
2. Check it's in heat "mode"
3. Check indoor and outdoor coils are clean.
4. Check fan motor is working alright.
5. Outside sensor and room air sensor is placed correctly.
6. Gas pressure is o.k
7.Check compressor is overheated, even all the above is o.k.

Unit set to heat but outside unit fan won't turn on. Outside temp is below freezing. The weird thing is that you unit is putting out heat and not set to emergency heat


If it is a heatpump, the outside unit should not turn on below 35degrees or so. Below that temperature, the unit cannot effeciently exchange heat. When the outside temperature is low, the system automatically switches over to auxillary heat which uses the same heating elements as emergency heat.

My Goodman gsh103301ab. The fan in the outside unit will not come on. The heat is still coming out the the vents but, just don't think that sounds right. Is this suppose to happen?


If it's in cool mode, the outside fan definitely should run to remove the heat. If it's heat mode the outside fan will start only when pressure build up. If it's problem with condenser fan definitely the breaker or fuse will be blown when the amphs increased.

Does it look like a box with four flex ducts or pipes coming off of it? if so its a fresh air/ heat recovery ventilator, supposed to bring in fresh air, keep in mind, the outdoor unit does not bring in air, it is just a pump to the indoor unit. that unit may be running independently, or wired incorrectly
