My AC unit in the house is not blowing any air, the unit outside is working fine. what could be the issue?

If you have no airflow in your home at all then the blower is not running. You may have a bad blower motor or a bad motor capacitor or even a wiring problem in your furnace/air handler.Any of these things require working with high voltage and using specialized tools and any tests should be performed by a qualified professional.

The fan inside the house part of the ac is not going round but it makes a sound as though it wants to. The outside unit is working fine.

It may be the start capacitor on the fan motor. or the motor could be weak. But I would bet its the capacitor.

We just moved, Bandsaw was working perfectly at old house , will not now start at new house, 14" Delta Bandsaw. Checked electric connections, all cords, extension cord, everything else plugged into same...

Does this unit have a lighted switch to show if the power is on also some models have reset switch on or about motor or externally on the housing,check for loose wires with saw un plugged,if you have a meter check for contunity from the plug to switch then check across switch for proper operation,if all these things are fine then if you are comfortable with testing with a meter for ac voltage make sure meter is set on ac range of atleast 200 volts unless you have an auto ranging meter.Check to see if you have voltage going to the motor,if you do and you have checked both sides of the reset button depending on your skill level you may need to replace the motor,or you may need to take it to a repair center.

I hope some of this helps

best of luck

Blower never stops. AC outside jammed to stay on???

You need to call someone who truely knows what they're doing. From your decription, the person you had out should not be working on units. You have a problem most likely caused be the person that installed the new motor and these units are not designed to be worked on by the homeowner. There are hazards that could cause damage or injury.

Try swapping the AC adaptor from one of the handsets with the adaptor from the base unit. That fixed my problem.

Big fan in outside unit shuts off but condensor keeps running....gets very warm in the house . AC repar man came and checked motor which worked fine when he was here. Now it has stopped working...

check for proper voltage at contactor, check capacitor, motor might be going out on overload. Meaning it is getting hot and shutting off. when it cools down it starts again. windings in motor are probably going bad.
