Does confessor/compressor fan blow air onto compressor or suck hot air away from compressor?this is whirlpool refrigerator


Really, the fan has nothing to do with the compressor. The fan either pulls or blows air through the condenser coils. If the compressor is running, the fan should be working. If the refrigerator goes into defrost, nothing should be working under it.

Air flow direction for the compressor motor, should it be pulling are away from the compressor, or pushing air into the compressor?


Air should be blowing onto the compressor and then directed across the condenser coils and the heat blows out the bottom front panel of the ref.

Those condensing units are usually designed to draw air in, even though it is warn air it is cooler than the compressor so the air moves heat away from compressor. I think its the proper configuration

I moved my refrigerator to vacum (Frigidaire model PLHT217TAK 2002) and since then the warm air stopped coming out from the front bottom vent. It also stopped making noise, it seems to want to start but...


the condenser fan motor is what blows the air around down there,pull out the machine remove the back bottom panel and you'll see the fan,check it to see if something is stuck in the fan blade keeping it from spinning,do this right away,if the fan isn't blowing you can cook your compressor,if something is wrong with the fan motor you can leave the bottom panel off and stick a regular fan back there to keep the compressor cool until you fix the fan motor.hope this helps

Single phase appliances only turn in one direction. Try cleaning your condenser to get better air circulation. Sounds like your compressor went out on head pressure.

Condenser fan running backwards on heat pump


I am having the same problem, sometimes it runs in the wrong direction, blowing the air down. Sometimes something gets tripped and I need to turn the thermostat to off and wait a bit then restart it. If I am lucky it will run int the correct direction and also will warm the house. Sometimes it send nothing but cold air to the house's forced air.

How far from the house should the outside unit be located?


If your outdoor fan is a vertical discharge in other words if the fan blows the air up from the top of the unit then one foot from house is fine, but if it is horizontal discharge or blows it out the side then the airflow needs to be directed away from the house or the unit needs to be moved away from the house far enough that it doesn’t restrict the airflow.
For the blower running on high speed a 4 ton unit is usually 1600 cfm so on low cfm it may seem like high speed. There should be some speed taps on the indoor pc board and if you look in your installation guide it should tell you what taps you need to get the lower airflow if its not correct.
For the luke warm air in the 2 ton mode, the coil is a still 4 tons but the compressor now is only pumping 2 tons of refrigerant so the discharge temperature and head pressure will be much lower and that is what determines how much heat you get, so you will get less heat. The 2 ton mode is for times when you only need a little heat or cool, when you need more then you will get the 2nd stage which is the full 4 tons of heat.

Hit A/C button on and it blows HEAT


It's either the compressor or it's out or low on freon. You have a fan motor which blows and a compressor that cools. If you can hear the compressor go on, your out of gas. If not it could be as simple as a capacitors or more involved.
