When you try to turn ac unit on the compressor works but the fan does not blow resulting in the coil freezing up. the unit is only 2 years old is there an easy solution.
The model number is m6d24e7a
Feel the motor and see if hes hot ...... spin the fan by hand and see if it spins freely if not the bearings have seized up. So either rebuild the fan motor simply by replacing the bearings and oiling them and that should fix your problem. IF the fan spins freely OHM out the fan and make sure there is no shorts or openings in the fan. if your fan motor checks out good both mechanically and electrically then your next step is to check the capacitor and control board

I think you have a similar problem to mine. At highway speeds is when it happens. And it is not blazing hot? Right?
Your evaporator is freezing up - as this happens the ice surrounding it prevents the flow of air over the evaporator coils and the result is warm air coming out of the registers. If I turn off the AC for about ten minutes and let unit melt the cold air comes back. This does not occur in stop and go driving.
I combat it by either running the fan at a higher than normal setting to increase air flow over the evaporator and then turning off when it gets too cold, OR using the air control to allow warmer outside air to enter into unit at highway speeds to prevent freezing up.
Newer cars have more sophisticated sensors and controls to prevent this but some older vehicles are subject to this anomaly.
Since it works fine under normal conditions I have not messed around with the freon level in system. If you release a tad of refrigerant the low pressure switch will shut off the compressor sooner and help minimize ice buildup. Good luck.
sounds like it is either low on Freon or the compressor is going out. The blowing ice cold is an indicator that it may be freezing up because the low Freon. when it stops blowing cold, turn it to fan only mode and see if it gets colder again. If that is the case then the unit is low on freon and freezing up. I know that sounds confusing but that is how AC works. The low freon pressure means the gas is expanding too fast and the air flow cannot take up the cold from the evaporator fast enough. Turning the compressor off and keeping the fan on will alow the room air to take up the cold.
I think you need to repost or clarify. You are asking why the freezer on your maytag gas dryer wont freeze. Assuming you have a split frig/freezer.... and assuming the compressor is working.... most common problem is either the fan motor is bad or possibly seized up with ice. Also the coils may be completely iced over. You can take two approaches here... Either turn the unit off and let it completely defrost, and let all the ice melt. Also best to tilt it to drain pooled up water after it melts. Or... you can remove some panels (sometimes difficult to do), and access the fan blower and coils. Once you get to the fan blower and coils check and make sure fan is blowing. let all the ice melt. A blow dryer works good for this, or just let it sit, and again make sure you tilt it and drain any pooling water. Also you should clean all the dirt, fuzz, and scum from under the unit around all the coils, and fans behind and below the unit.
probably have a bad compressor clutch coil. unpug the compressor and then turn on the ac if the fuse does not blow the problem is the clutch coil, if it still blows you will need a wiring diagram to sort it out.
Check outside unit if unit and compressor are running feel the large line to see if it is cold. If compressor is running and line is not cold possible charge problems. You may have a capacitor problem outside. they go out quite often. You can change this yourself, Open up outside unit and the cap is the silver bullet with terminals out the top. Bad cap can cause compressor to not operate and also the fan. You need to clean the coil inside or at leat check the coil to see if it is clean. You can clean theis with a toilet brush do not go against the coil bit brush with the fins. You may need to call a service tech but try these options first. russ
you have to open the unit up or atleast see if the fan is failing. The blower motor is usually a double shaft and cool the compressor and also blows the air across the evaporator. Look for the air to stop blowing then the compressor to shake from overheating.
sounds like the compressor is turning off cause of high pressure. check the coil that the exhaust hose connects to, if dirty clean it. if the fan is not blowing enough air threw the coil the unit will build up high side pressure and cut out, but will turn back on when pressure drops. if that dont help, maybe the fan motor is bad or needs taken apart and oiled.
set your unit to fan mode only, to thaw the ice, after the ice melts, look at your evaporator coil, see if its dirty, if its dirty, then you might just need a good cleaning. if the coil is clean, look at your thermostat setting. it should not be all the way cold. the compressor would run continously and it would freeze the coil. third, the refrigerant system could be partially clogged up or it lacks refrigerant. these problems initiate freezing of the coil.
