Best bet is to replace the motor. Sounds like your having wiring issues inside the motor windings.

Inside unit working but no cold air. It's room temp. air. Outside unit is humming very lightly but not spinning. I had this same problem last year but a relay was burned out..

Stop. Do not run the A/C without the fan. The compressor could fail. The answer is exterior fan motor lubrication. With power off, the motor may be checked. Look for oil "ports" on an unsealed electric motor. Open & fill w/ ELECTRIC motor oil. The fan may be manually spun to free it up. The other "relay" problem is usually the contactor, and this would fail "on" always or "off" always. If the contactor is stuck "on" the system will freeze up, if "off" it will not run. You still may need to have coolant added to the system, but it's worth it to check this out first. If the motor has no oil ports, you can still try to free it up, but it will need to be replaced, or it will eventually fail.

Error reading LE. How can I fix this without calling repair guy. Washer spins but once the water is inthe machine it will not spin.

Error code LE indicates that either the motor is not turning or has locked up for some reason. It can also be due to Hall sensor which monitors direction and speed of the motor. If the sensor is faulty then also this error appears. Motor lock can be caused by several things from a loose connector, to a bad motor. To make sure it's not a locked motor, try turning the drum with your hand. And, if there is any resistance while turning the drum or the drum doesn't move freely then the motor is locked and you'll need to get it replaced. If the motor seems to be fine then you would need to replace the Hall Sensor. To replace the hall sensor, take the back cover off. Take the big nut off and remove the motor rotor. Remove the bolts holding the motor windings. Remove the electric plug on the sensor and unclip it from the motor winding. Hope this helps...

Power Windows and locks

If it does not work at all check the fuse first (check fuse and relay in any case).

If fuse is ok, test the wirings, from switch to fuse box, and from fuse box to motor.

If there is no power from switch to fusebox, replace switch.

If there is no power from switch to motor, check wirings and fuse, and eventually replace them.

If there is power to motor, check that the glass is not stuck , byu removing door panel, if the motor is not working replace it.

Power Windows and locks

usually the regulator assy which is cable driven is broken if you hear the motor working but the glass doesn't move also if the lock runs or buzzes the lock actuator is bad

GE washing machine, wont spin

Same problem (but without any smell). You should try to reset the two computer boards in the washer. You do this by 1) unplugging machine and wait for 30 secs; 2) plug in machine; and 3) open and fully close the lid at least 5 times. This resets computer boards, which can get messed up by power surges, etc.
