    this is a window type fedders aircondition unit, the fan is working when switched to high cool you hear a sound like the compressor is trying to start, "UGGG"..., for about 5 to 10 seconds and then all you hear is the condenser fan run and no cool air coming out.

Chances are the cooling coils are real dirty and need to be cleaned. Remove the unit and wash with a coil cleaner. Home Depot sells coil cleaner that you don't have to rinse off. Don't be alarmed by the bubbles it makes. If the coils are dirty, it will create a lot of torque on the motor thus making the noise. Otherwise, you may have a motor that is going bad. Hopefully this info helps.

My whirlpool side by side fridge/freezer is making a loud noise while running.


If the noise is coming from inside, the evaporator fan motor (the fan motor that circulates cool air located in the freezer section) may be the culprit. If noise is on the outside, the condenser fan motor may be the problem. This is the fan motor that removes the heat from the refrigerator to the room.

Why won't my carrier furnace come back on?model number 58rav095.It was running and heating,but makes a horrible noise on start up.Is it the motor going out?


If the noise is coming from the fan coil unit then it could be the blower motor. If the bearings are failing it will make noise on start up and run. But after a period of time it will overheat and the overload protection switch will lock it out to keep it from running until it cools down.

Why my 2006 nissan maxima cooling fan wont come on


Defective fan thermostat, fan motor, or the engine is cool enough that the fan need not run.
Bypass the switch and place 12 voltes directly to fan motor to see if it will run.

I have a Whirlpool Model ACQ158XPO wall/window air conditioner. Motor comes on but it does not cool. Any suggestions?


Its really tough to troubleshoot window units without pulling the cover off. If I was standing there looking at it without tools in my hand I would first make sure the fan/cool switch was in the fan high cool mode and that the thermostat was turned all the way to the coolest setting. Beyond that it needs to go in for repair. Wish I could be more help. Good luck.

We have a 2002 Chevy Malibu.. And the fans want run to keep the motor cool.. When the motor get too hot the car will shut off.. So, what do I do about it??


First check fuses, there are two fans if fitted with air con. The air con. fan only comes on with the air con. The engine radiator cooling fan comes on at operation tem., it is controlled by a censer switch on the radiator .If there is power to the switch and the switch is OK the fan motor is at fault.

Air conditioner fan is making a loud noise


1. Could be a caught foreign object between A/C (air conditioning) fan and cooling radiator, producing this loud noise.
2. Could be a damaged fan blade, mowing the cooling radiator.
3. Could be a loud noise comming from the fan's electrical motor.
4. Could be a broken off fin (small wing) of the cooling radiator, striking the A/C fan, producing this loud noise.

It makes a noise while moveing likea roar


If the car makes the sound you say,try this.Turn the air/con off and on and see if the sound goes off and on.The car has an electric fan that comes on with the air/con to help cooling of the motor.It may also be the fans for the engine cooling system.If the car starts without the sound and it then kicks in later,its the cooling system working properly.Hope this helps

Blower/Switch Problem with Air Flow?


The extra air flow most likely turns the fan motor, check the fuses, check the fan motor switch for power if O.K. check the fan motor for power..

Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan stops spinning after 15 mins


Capacitor, dirty condencer coil causing the motor amps to run too high. But most likely worn bearing on blade side of motor causing it to pull to one side causing it to over heat and shut down. Sleve bearings should have no side play.
