It sounds like your condenser fan motor may be locked up or the capacitor that helps give the condenser fan motor a kick to get it started may be defective. Try turning your system on and using a long screwdriver try to push the fan blade on the condenser fan motor to see if it will run normally if you give it the starting boost it needs.If it does run at full speed and doesn't over heat or start and then slow down then you probably only need to replace a simple 10-12$ capacitor. If it barely turns, makes an odd humming sound or overheats etc. then you will have to replace the condenser fan motor. This is assuming that the outdoor condenser has the 220v supplied and the 24v supplied to the compressor relay, that the compressor relay is engaged and suppling 220v to the condenser fan motor.

SOURCE: Whirlpool portable AC, compressor works, but no exhaust fan

This is a single speed permanent split capacitor motor for the condenser. One of the capacitor wires shows infinite resistance to hot and netral. The motor needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: Samsung AS09XLN air conditioner lights blinking

Sounds like a common problem I have found with Samsung mini split unit. When powering on, does the internal blower attempt to start, then the unit stops and lights blink? If so, on the circuit card there is a 1.2uf or 1.5uf (CBB61) that probably has gone bad. I have replaced several of these. Good luck.

Fujitsu airon ASTA24LCC 2 flashes green and red then 5 red flashes any idea what it means


Had similar problem (ie. 2 green & red flashed followed by 5 red flashes - Fan blowing but not cooling ... I also noted that the outside unit fan wasn't going). Tried restarting several time after waiting only a minute or two after turning the mains power off but with no change. So turned the unit off at the mains power and then fired it up about 2hrs later and it was all working fine.

Just bought it. quiet for 2 hrs then an inconsistent scratching, buzzing scraping kind of sound that we CAN't sleep through. compressor is working fine and so is fan. HELP??!!


Might have something loose or broken and is hitting the fan inside. If it is a slushing sound, that is the water being slung back up unto the fan blade and condensor coil to cool the inside of the unit.

The compressor is working fine as well as the unit, but the fan isn't turning, therefore no cold air is blowing out.


What I would do is yank the innards out and look for signs of why the motor won't turn. I would oil the motor using zoomspout oil. If it is original to the unit and the compressor is ok I would say the capacitor is fine. If it is a replacement fan motor already in there take a look at it's replacement cap. They swell up and fail. Look for trash jamming the motor blade, or the motor mount itself could be broken . Usually their are 3 motor mounts. It only take one motor mount broken to bind up the motor.

I have a trane XB1000 unit (DOB around 2000). Was cooling fine, but noted a whining noise at the outside unit. Loudest near the base below compressor tank. Interior filter clean, a-coil fairly clean,...


If the sound is coming from the outdoor unit, check fan blade if unbalance and if the compressor is making the noise, an internal mounting spring must be broken, be ready to replace the compressor when the internal pipe got broken.

Brada ypm-06c air conditioner not cooling the room down no matter what i do! keep getting E3 code. is it normal for the lcd lights to keep blinking and blinking! SO annoying when in the bedroom at...


You need to clean the filters and coils on this unit so the error code will go away and the unit will work like it should. If it can't get clean air across the coils it will freeze up and not circulate any air. Most common issues are dirty filters and dirty coils that prevent air flow. Is the fan working to blow air? this code could also mean the fan is not working. Check on these and let me know.

My indoor blower is not working it blinks 8 times


This alarm state is a CH08 alarm. Which indicates that the indoor unit fan motor has a locked rotor. Solution is to check the indoor fan capacitor and replace or test the windings of the indoor fan motor. Note: the indoor fan motor is a BLDC fan motor and can not be replaced with any other motor. It runs of a voltage regulated frequency.

Air conditioner comes on but nothing moves


Take the front cover off..
Inside you will see a barell fan..
Turn the unit on and give the fan a good spin by hand.. If it comes back on - the fan was stuck.. And is a sign of the fan motor on is way out - or maybe a bad capasitor.. If the fan does not come back on - the fan motor could be bad or maybe the capasitor..

My RV rooftop air conditioner fan has seized up


Whether to replace the entire unit or repair it is a tough decision. If the unit is not very old and was working fine before the fan motor froze up, then I do not think that it is necessary for the entire unit to be replaced. With a new unit of course comes the new warranty.

It is not difficult at all to replace the upper unit of the air conditioner. What you have to look for and make sure of is that the ceiling pack or Air Distribution Box (inside unit of AC) that you currently have is compatible with the new Upper Units. Get the part number off of the inner unit and make sure that it is compatible with the part number of the new upper.

Again, it is much less expensive to replace the fan motor than the entire unit (especially Dometic). You could replace the fan motor and get another 10 years out of the AC or, you could replace it and only get 1 year out of it. That is your call.

Just a word of precaution. Dometic Air Conditioners are very hard to find right now due to an industrial accident that occurred at the AC plant. Most distributors and service centers are 6 to 8 weeks out on getting a Dometic AC in stock. That is something else to think about.

Hope this helps,

Jeff

Thank you. there are some other signs i don't know about.


The black triangle means AUTO, means the fan speed adjust by itself from high-mid-low speed depending in room temperature but the unit is cooling for this function the same COOL mode. Plasma is in the remote control but it never mention in the manual.
If the unit dont cool check your temperature setting and mode setting it should be in cool mode and temperature setting should be 18C. But if still don't cool check some error code like blinking light at the indoor panel check how many blink appears to get the correct error code.. If the light is blinking 3 times it means that the room air or coil sensor is defective.
