Cold weather may be making the lubricant too thick and impeding the motor from turning. On a cold day see how easy it is to spin the fan.

It could also be the switch is worn to the point that the cold weather causes the metal to contract then it does not have enough strength to snap into the closed position. Cold weather can also cause failures in electronic circuits or even a wire connection that is not quite tight enough.

Depending on what year the fan was made try looking very close at the actual body of the fan. you may find a small switch you can manually use to reverse the direction of the blades.. I may have some used working remotes that will work with your fan if you like please feel free to contact me at payitforwardx2 @ gmail . com .

If both the fan and the light are not working, it is likely a connection issue. Lower the fan canopy and/or housing, and check to see that all the wires are connected . As you said wall switch is getting power so its loose wire at the canopy. The remote receiver is in the ceiling canopy of the fan. Remove it and wire the fan as you would without it.

You must first try to check if there is a voltage coming to the fan motor. Try to use the wall switch turn it on then try to feel if there is any vibration from the motor, if you feel some vibration then the problem would be the starting capacitor.Good day and best regards hope this may narrow the problem.

I have a neo plasma lg 7kw will not heat LG Air conditioner


Make sure the setting on the remote is correct . Sun symbol for heating. Make sure the filters are clean. On heating, the indoor unit will 1/2 open the flap but the fan shouldn't start. The outdoor unit should start and if working properly, will be blowing cold air. The indoor unit will open the flap fully and the indoor fan will start once it gets hot then you should feel warm air. If the outdoor unit is blowing warmish air, I would say the reversing valve coil has failed or one of the indoor temp or pipe sensors are faulty. If a sensor fails, a "CH" error should appear on the display.

Check the air filter and if it is dirty, replace..
Turn equipment off and let the ice melt.
After ice melts, place a/c in cooling mode and set the thermostat to 3 degrees below room temp display.

The indoor unit fan should start blowing cold air immediately and then turn off once the room temp drops one degree below the cooling temp setting.
If the indoor unit does cycle off, check the outdoor unit and make sure it turns off at the same time.
If the outdoor unit continues to run and the indoor fan is not running, the indoor unit will ice up.
A defective compressor relay that is stuck in a closed position will cause icing of the indoor unit because it keeps the compressor running when it should turn off with the indoor fan.

Do you have an error code being displayed on the controller?
Is there an led light that is flashing on the indoor unit?

Another possibility causing the indoor unit to ice up is if the freon in the system starts to get low.
Make sure the ice has all melted for this next check.
Pretty easy to check without special tools.
If the air filter is clean and there is no dust/ dirt blocking the fins on the indoor unit, turn a/c back on to cool and check that the indoor unit fan comes on and is blowing air good.
Once everything seems to running good go to the outdoor unit.
There will be two lines with black rubber insulation covering them.
Peel back the insulation three inches on each line and observe the copper lines.
If either line starts to frost up the a/c system is most likely low on refrigerant.


Another cause of indoor unit icing could be that the aluminum fins behind the air filter are clogged with dust or other foreign material.
This would block the air that must be pulled in causing the indoor unit coil to become too cold due to lack of air flow and it will ice up.

Operating the cooling system when the outdoor temperature is below 60 degrees can cause the indoor unit to ice up also.

Make sure the indoor filters are clean. The outside unit will continue to run until the indoor reaches the temperature you have selected. Dirty filters can throw the temperature out. Its common for outdoor units to freeze up when on heating mode if the ambient air temperature is below 5 degrees Celcius.. The machine should however, defrost itself. There could be a problem with one of the pipe or air sensors on the outdoor unit.

You are just missing one wire to all the circuits. The ones that work are good ... add the one wire that is not hooking up to the others to complete a serial circuit.

Doesn't look like a Minka Aire fan. If it has wood blades, it probably isn't an outdoor fan.

The outdoor unit doesnt work for ac panasonic cs c9mkp,i have following the instruction on manual book.


After switching the indoor unit to cool, the indoor fan starts and the light flashes, lower the temperature setting to 16 degree centigrade. When the light stops flashing the outdoor fan and the compressor start, if not check the wiring connection going to the compressor contactor. Check if there is power supplying the holding coil of the contactor. If the contactor works, check the power on both contact points by using a volt meter. If the outdoor fan only works, you need to check line working pressure. If the standing pressure is low, compressor will not start.

Indoor fan blowing cold air when on heating


The indoor fan will continue to run. When heat pump goes into defrost the outdoor fan stops, the reversing valve switches and the unit is basically working in the cooling mode. In order for you not to feel a blast of cold air in the winter the electric strip heat also comes on so the indoor fan must run while the strip heaters are on.

Indoor fan slow to rotate in heat mode and no heat/compressor


The indoor fan will not run at normal fan speed untill the indoor coil reaches 32oC. This is done so that a cold draught is not felt when outdoor unit is not running. Check to make sure the outdoor unit is operating. If the outdoor fan is running but there is no indoor fan after 5 mins then you must likely have a gas issue or a fault compressor circuit.

Heat/ac pump


- If it is a high wall unit yep under charge refrigerant is one of the cause.
- Out of range thermistor is also can also be the cause of tripping outdoor unit with matching blinking light same as low refrigerant.
- Dirty indoor and outdoor can also be the cause
HOW TO CHECK IF YOUR UNIT IS OUT OF FREON
- If your indoor and outdoor is clean start the unit in cool mode and monitor the outdoor pipes. If your suction pipe is icing or dry then your unit is under charge, but if your suction is cold and sweating then the system is ok and sure that the thermistor sensor is defective.
