Blower not working

The other day I noticed one of my AC's wasnt blowing cold air, so I look in the intake and see a paper towel frozen inside a block of ice. I let it thaw and removed the blockage but unfortunately it still wasnt blowing. Since I have two identical units, I was told to take the working blower out and put it in the non working unit... Nothing happened, so I put the working blower back in the working unit and now it is no longer working!! So now I have two units that are not blowing any cold air! Is there something I am missing, like a reset button? Outside units work as does the thermostat. The blower seems as if there is NO POWER getting to it whatsoever. Please Help!!!!

    There is no capacitor, it is a newer model with a variable speed motor. Any other thoughts?

  • Steve F Nov 27, 2013

    Confirming that the unit isnt on delay (As per other posts), It seems like the fan motor is a DC motor. I have had problems with other brands with these DC fan motors shorting internally. When they short out, AC voltage is applied to the main board, thus "blowing the board" Its possible that when you swapped over the fan motors, the main board was already faulty and applied AC voltage back to the "good" DC motor, which caused that motor to fail as well. You may need 2 motors and 2 main boards to fix. Could be an expensive excercise. I would go with 1 board and 1 motor to start with and see if that fixes it.

Check all of the wiring connections from your fan motor. If 1 was OK before, there shouldn't be any reason its not now. Closely check the connections going to the capacitor. If they are back to front, the fan wont start, it will sit there humming. If you give it a flick and the fan starts up, it will be that connection.

What about the blower time delay relay: http://americanhvacparts.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=SEQ1370738&Category_Code=

This usually delays the blower until the air is cool, but if it's faulty it might not start the blower at all.

You need to call a reputable service technician.  The freezing up usually is associated with a low refrigerant charge or low air flow.  Check your return air filter and replace as needed.

Due to the many different questions I see about Air Conditioning, I am including this overview to help us better understand each other for trouble shooting. A basic air conditioning system has a Thermostat, Air Handler or Furnace Fan and a Condensing unit. In a split system, the condensing unit (Condenser) is separate from the furnace and usually in the back yard. When working properly, it blows hot air. It connects to the cooling part of the system by 2 copper lines. One large line and 1 small line. The part that cools the house is the "Evaporator" and is usually on top of the furnace inside the square metal box (Plenum). When the Air Conditioner is running, the large copper line should be cold and the smaller line should be warm. Common signs of low refrigerant are that both lines are the same temperature and/or frost or ice has built up on the large line at the condenser. The thermostat will normally display room temperature on till it is touched to change the setting. It could have a "Span" setting as well as times and temperatures. The operating "span" of MOST residential thermostats is 40 to 90 degrees. That means you can set it as low as 40 degrees and no higher than 90 degrees. It probably has a fan switch also. When in the "ON" position, the fan will run constantly, 24 / 7, but the condenser will still cycle on and off as needed to keep the house at set point. If you have a suggestion to include in this paragraph, please let me know.

I think I have it covered above. Let me know if you need something more specific. Thank you. Roger

Replace the blower motor resister,this is the speeds for the blower motor,it is located very near the blower motor,and is mounted on the blower box,and it actually goes inside the box,to keep it cool.The reason for it`s failure is the blower motor,even though the blower motor sounds,and runs good,it is drawing too many amps.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

The AC stops blowing air for a while and then re-start working normaly.


Have you noticed that the AC quits blowing cold air when you are heavy on the throttle, or climbing a hill? Does it return to blowing cold air when you let back off the throttle and relieve the load from the engine?

If you answered YES to those questions, your AC is operating normally. AC compressors take quite a bit of power from the engine to operate. In vehicles with smaller engines, the AC compressor will disengage when there is a heavy demand for power placed on the engine, and you will not get cold air. When that demand is gone, it re-engages power to the AC compressor.

Front Blower


ok, missed the part about the rear ac working, the part that causes this is called the air temperature control blend door actuator motor, it is an electric motor driven gear drive that moves the plastic door inside the air ducking to mix or shut off the hot or cold air from the ac evaporator core or the heater core, you will need to replace it.

Central air/heat pump not putting out cold air


I have some things for you to check. If you look at the outside unit the lines going into the house. Are they frozen? Have you had any yard work done, the reason I ask is they could have accidentally cut or pulled out the thermostat wires to the ac unit. Also, inside check for the same thing, frozen lines. Also, you may want to check the drain coming from the inside unit, it may be clogged.

Your in house core could have frozen over. check the core inside the indoor blower unit. it may have frozen over. this will interrupt the cold air function.
