SOURCE: humming noise repeats every few

it sounds like a bad: 

  •           start switch (on the side of the compressor) or
  • ·        compressor itself

the start switch clicks  off usually when the compressor is pulling too many amps or the compressor is overheating. if the compressor is not even running then its probably not overheating.
·                                 so either the compressor is pulling too many amps (bad compressor) or the start switch is bad and cannot handle the amps required to start the compressor.
if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

SOURCE: Outdoor fan motor is not running fast enough?

Thanks for the suggestion. I figured out the problem. The replacement fan motor I bought was general fan motor. it had 5 wires. Two of them went to the capacitor (this unit has combo capacitor, 3 leg). I followed the schematic diag on the motor and connected one leg to the C and the other leg to the FAN on capacitor. what was happening, the start winding was working against the run winding in the motor. Once I switch the wires in the capacitor, fan ran at full speed. thanks again for your reply.

SOURCE: freezer and refrigerator not cooling. Makes a buzzing noise

hello sbarrry2 it sound like the motor that is running continously is the condenseer fan and the buzzing and then the click would be the compressor trying to start up and going off on overlaod. shut the unit off at the swiutch, let it cool down (3) hours possibly and then try to turn it back on. this should work. Thanks for using FixYA

How do you check a fan motor






You need to check the volts at the motor while it's running, to make sure some safety is not shutting it off. Then check the amps on the motor while it's running. Also you need to check your capacitor and wiring.

I have moved into a property with a Sector extractor fan in the bathroom - when you turn the light on the extractor starts up -when you turn the light off the extractor continues to run for a long time -...


On some Bathroom extractor fans there is a setting for the amount of time you want the fan to stay on after you turn off the switch, the setting dial is normally at the back of the fan so you need to take the fan down from the ceiling making sure the fan is electrically isolated.

Can i run a bathroom fan and lights off the same 2/14 wire out of 1 junction box?


In all likelihood, yes. The circuit probably has a 15 amp breaker and can easily carry 10 amps continuously. That is, the breaker and the wire are OK for that. Assuming the fan is 100 watts (it's probably less), you could run about 9 100 watt lightbulbs with the fan. The key is what else is running from that same junction box. If it's just a few other lights, or even an outlet or two that you won't be running a window air-conditioner from, then no problem. However, the fan, several 100W bulbs plus a hairdryer - that's too much.

I need help hooking up my bathroom fan and light i have three wires going to the bathroom fan and light white black and ground i want a swith to turn off the bathroom light one to run the light to the fan...


Right now a single switch turns on both light and fan.
You want to put in a double switch to control light and fan separately.

But the problem is there is not a separate wire to each the light and fan.
You need a separate wire to each, but the circuit wasn't wired that way.
Usually when the circuit is wired for separate control, there is a red wire that also goes to ceiling box.

Unless you run another wire to the ceiling box, it won't be possible to control light and fan separately.

Electrician can do this pretty easily if there is attic space above bathroom.

Ok you only have two switches, so you would use one switch for your bathroom light, and the other for both the fan and the light, the light will come on when you turn the fan on.Connect the incoming black (hot) wire to both switches. Then connect the black wire to the switch you want for your light. Connect the other black to the second switch that goes to your fan and light. Connect the three white wires together (neutral) Connect all ground wires together, and leave a pigtail to connect to the ground terminal on the light switch. If you want separate switches for light in the fan and fan, you will need another conductor and a three gang switch.

I recently had a fan installed in a small bathroom (5x8). The mirror and windows still fog up even when I take a brief shower. A few minutes after the water stops running, the moisture does seem to clear...


On the assumption that your bathroom is 8 ft high, then the volume of air in the bathroom is 5x8x8 or 320 cu ft. Even if your fan is 80 cfm it would take 4 minutes to completely exchange the air. Leaving the door slightly ajar would assist.
To overcome a similar problem, I installed a second fan with a push button 10 minute timer so the fan runs for a few minutes after I leave the bathroom.
