A the fan motor is bad. Or b the capacitor is bad. Try spinning the fan motor with a stick or screwdriver.if it spins freely then it might be the capacitor. Take the side cover off and look for a silver round thing if the top is bubbled up or it has oil on it it's bad.But it's got to be one of those.

SOURCE: What does the "dry mode" mean in a Hampton Bay air

The "dry mode" dehumidifies the air. This is useful when you do not need to cool the air but the relative humidity is higher than you want to have inside. You get the advantage of bringing in the fresh air without increasing the indoor humidity.

I hope this helps.

Hello, some window units do not use a drain tube instead they use the condenser fan blade to scoop the condensate from the bottum of the base pan and splash the condenser coil to keep the condenser cool and also evaporate the condensate. Most of the time you can hear a "swishing sound"

In a 10x23 room with lots of widows how many BTU air conditioner do I need?


The dimensions you gave only equal 230 sq ft. It may seem larger, because it's long and narrow. Even with lots of windows*, you shouldn't need more than 15,000- Btu's to cool the area comfortably. *That's assuming you close the blinds, shades or curtains, while the room is in direct sunlight. Even with a higher Btu output, those "lots of windows" will always be an air conditioners worst enemy. So, in your case, more is not better. In fact, it's a waste of energy.

If you have a ceiling fan in that room, run it on the highest speed that comfortable to you, in a clockwise (looking up at the fan blades) direction. This will help move the cool air around and generate a wind chill. That will make it feel cooler than it really is. Plus, it takes the strain of the AC unit.

I hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Fan motor is probably bad, if it is under 5 years old the parts are under warranty. Do not run the unit for very long without the fan working as it can damage the compressor.

HI, My Kenmore Air Conditioner Model# 76129 - turns on, makes a sound like it is going to work but the fan does not move. Thanks


When a fan malfunctions, the problem is usually loose or dirty blades. If the fan won't operate or if it's noisy, cleaning and tightening will usually fix it. Here's how to repair a room air conditioner's fan:
What You'll Need
You'll want to have these tools on hand to repair a room air conditioner's fan:
  • Vacuum
  • Soft cloth
  • Screwdriver or Allen wrench
  • Long-blade screwdriver
  • Wrench 20-weight nondetergent motor oil
  • Volt-ohmmeter or multimeter
Step 1: Open cabinet and locate fan.
Step 2: Clean away any debris with vacuum and soft cloth.
Step 3: Check fan blade on motor shaft for looseness. Blade is fastened to shaft with setscrew at hub of blade.
Tighten setscrew with screwdriver or Allen wrench. If air conditioner has round vent fan, tighten fan on motor shaft by inserting long-blade screwdriver through port in fan.
Fan is installed in its h­ousing with bolts, and vibration can loosen these fasteners. Then tighten them with wrench.
Step 4: If fan has oil ports, apply several drops of 20-weight nondetergent motor oil (not all-purpose oil) to each port at beginning of cooling season.
Step 5: If you suspect fan motor is faulty, test it with VOM set to RX1 scale. Disconnect terminal wires from terminals, and clip probes of VOM to wires.
If meter reads between about 3 and 30 ohms, motor is functioning properly. If meter reads either zero or an extremely high number, replace motor.
To remove the fan motor, remove the fan, the power wires, and several mounting bolts. Install the new motor with the reverse procedure .bobicehouse_59.jpg

I have a 1400 btu portable air conditioner ( AMANA ) and the fan is broken, how to replace it.


Obviously, you will have to disassemble part of the cabinet to access the fan blade. Removig the blade should not be difficult. If it's the fan motor, than that may be a challenge. However, since you did not furnish the Model Number of your AC Unit, there's not much more I can tell you, other than where to find the part(s) you'll need. Try Factory Appliance Parts http://www.appliancefactoryparts.com/airconditioners/amana/amana-motors-and-blades.html You'll definitely need the correct Model Number of your unit, to search for the part(s) you'll need.

Hope this helped you.

This problem could be caused by a bad motor run capacitor. Please see our If your motor capacitor is not the problem, then more than likely you need a new motor.
