Question about Maytag M3X05F2D Air Conditioner

Open Question

When I turn the unit on all it does is hum. But if I slide something in like a 12 inch ruler and I spin the blower wheel just a bit and then I turn the switch on, it works perfectly. when I shut it off, to get it going again, I have to repeat the above process

SOURCE: My Maytag DFC5500AAX just hums. When I spin it

There is a problem with the starter circuit. Electrical motors that big have a special circuit that gives them a jolt to get them started. It could be a failed capacitor, internal starter switch, or the starter coil on the motor itself. If it's under warranty you definitely need to exchange it. If you know what you're doing you could take it apart and test the motor components with an ohm meter to see what's bad, but it really wouldn't be that expensive to just replace it with another disposer.

How to replace blower wheel on Friedrich SL28M30 AC unit


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you








    • 1



      Turn the electricity to the air conditioning unit off at the
      service disconnect box. Follow the wires from the AC unit to the
      disconnect box, usually located next to the unit. Open the disconnect
      box and, depending on the type, either pull the buss-bar or flip the
      disconnect switch.





    • 2



      Open the air handler\'s access panels with the correct size of nut driver, usually 5/16- or 1/4-inch. Save the screws.









    • Remove the control panel\'s cover, if equipped, with a nut
      driver. Some models have a flat metal cover over the electronic
      controls, and some control panels butt up to the unit\'s access cover.
      Save the screws and access cover.





    • 4



      Follow the wires from the blower motor. Two wires will go to
      a capacitor located on the blower\'s housing. The rest of the wires will
      go to the control panel.





    • 5



      Cut the wires leading into the control panel with wire cutters. Leave the cut wires connected inside of the control panel.





    • 6



      Remove the retaining bolts with either a nut driver, usually
      3/8-inch, or an adjustable wrench. The retaining bolts, found on the
      mounting brackets that the blower\'s housing slides on, keep the blower\'s
      housing locked into position. Save the bolts.





    • 7



      Slide the blower motor\'s housing out of the AC unit. The housing will slide straight out along the mounting brackets.





    • 8



      Disconnect the two wires going to the capacitor. They will pull straight off the capacitor\'s terminals.





    • 9



      Unscrew the squirrel cage\'s locking-screw with an adjustable
      wrench. The squirrel cage, the bladed wheel, connects to the blower
      motor\'s shaft inside of the housing. The locking screw holds the
      squirrel cage to the shaft.





    • 10



      Unscrew the blower motor\'s mounting screws with either a nut
      driver, usually 3/8-inch, or an adjustable wrench. These screws hold
      the motor to the housing and are found on the opposite side of the
      squirrel cage, the same side that the wires leave the motor.





    • 11



      Pull the motor from the housing. A drop of oil on the shaft
      will aid in removal. If the squirrel cage sticks to the shaft, then hold
      the shaft still with an adjustable wrench while spinning the squirrel
      cage on the shaft.





    • 12



      Slide the new blower motor into the housing. The blower motor\'s shaft will slide into the squirrel cage\'s hole.





    • 13



      Tighten the blower motor\'s mounting screws.





    • 14



      Spin the blower motor\'s shaft until the flat part of the
      shaft lines up with the squirrel cage\'s locking screw. Move the squirrel
      cage in or out until it does not touch the housing or the blower motor.
      Tighten the locking screw.





    • 15



      Connect the blower motor\'s capacitor wires, usually brown or
      brown with white stripes, to the capacitor. Direct replacement motors
      use the same color-coded wires as the original.





    • 16



      Slide the blower motor\'s housing into the AC unit along the mounting brackets. Install the mounting bracket\'s retaining bolts.





    • 17



      Connect the new blower motor\'s wires in the control panel
      one at a time. Disconnect one old wire in the control panel. Determine
      its color and connect the new wire, of the same color, to its place. Do
      this for all wires.





    • 18



      Replace the control panel\'s cover, if equipped, and the
      unit\'s access cover. Turn on the power to the unit at the disconnect box
      and test the blower motor.

Blower won't run


usually a "humming motor" indicates either a bad capacitor or a defective motor. With the power off try to spin the blower wheel...it should spin freely. If it is tight or wont spin and there are no obstructions stopping it (like an air filter sucked into blower or other debris) then the motor most likely is seized. If the blower wheel spins free then you may have a bad capacitor. Keep in mind, just because the blower spins easy doesn't mean the motor is good. I have had motors that are defective that dont seize up but most of the time the blower wheel will not spin free if the motor fails.

Hello, I bought my little girl the huffy 12in disney princess bike (blue) already assembled from walmart. she tried to ride it today, but when she pedals the back wheel spins, but the training wheels and...


ONE AT A TIME, loosen the nuts securing the training wheels to the rear axle and slide each one upward a little bit so it float a little bit off the ground when the bike is vertical, then retighten the nut.

As she develops her handling and balance skills she'll need less help from the training wheel. So you can gradually raise them a bit higher as she masters balance and then she'll develop the 'lean' for turning. Ultimately, you remove them entirely.

I hope she's wearing a properly-fitted helmet.

Dryer turns on but does not start when i push the start button. The timer comes on all the buttons light up, light is on inside dryer, but does not start just makes a sound when i hit the start button


if it's a humming sound the motor is bad or something is jammed keeping the motor from spinning.open the dryer door and move the drum by hand if the drum can't be moved the belt could be jammed on something or there's something stuck in the blower wheel.the blower wheel is behind the duct that the lint filter slides into.if you can move the drum then you most likely have a bad motor,try spinning the drum and push the door switch in and have someone else push the push to start button and see if the dryer will start,if the motor has a flat spot it could start like this.let me know what you find

Drying humming but drum will not turn


the humming is from the motor,try turning the drum by hand,if you can turn the drum the motor is bad, it might start after you spin the drum but it will stop again,if you can't turn it the belt could be locked up on something or something is stuck in the blower wheel located underneath the lint filter,you might have to remove the duct that the lint filter slides into to get at whatever might be stuck in the wheel.

I have an older whirlpool dryer when you turn it on it hums but doesn't spin.


Three possibles here:

1) The motor is running but the belt is broken not allowing the drum to turn.

Try to turn the drum by hand and see if it rotates very freely and takes a while to stop. if so, your belt is broken. If it feels like there is a good deal of resistance on the drum and stops as soon as you let go, your belt is functional.

2) Something is stuck (probably in the blower wheel) not allowing the motor to start up. If as you attempted to rotate the drum in #1 above it did not turn at all, this and #3 below are possible.

You'll need to disassemble the unit to get to the blower wheel and verify it's clear.

3) Motor is bad (common with older well used dryers) and needs to be replaced. This may also cause the drum to be locked as above.

That's all I can think of that will cause the motor humming but not having the drum to spin.
