Question about Frigidaire Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

The interior unit comes on normally, but the exterior unit - compressor starts - fan does not. Fuses check OK - compressor stops in short time. Fan never starts, just a hum, and hot to touch. Could the fan be the problem, or starter relay??? Help please.

Make sure the fan turns freely. No obstructions or bad bearing. And check the capacitor

Interior fan has stopped but air con compressor starts when fan is switched on


look for blower motor. if not the case, the blower could just be broken. it can happen once the vehicle gets close to 10 years, but is usually preceded by a noise in the blower. most everything other than the blower, in the ac system, goes back to the mc unit.

Why is one 30 AMP fuse pair blowing on Carrier Tech 2000 SS AC Unit?


Pull off one of the wires to the fan. If it still blows a fuse the compressor is shorted. If not replace the fan motor.

I have a trane XB1000 unit (DOB around 2000). Was cooling fine, but noted a whining noise at the outside unit. Loudest near the base below compressor tank. Interior filter clean, a-coil fairly clean,...


If the sound is coming from the outdoor unit, check fan blade if unbalance and if the compressor is making the noise, an internal mounting spring must be broken, be ready to replace the compressor when the internal pipe got broken.

Compressor appears to kick in, runs for short time


It sounds like your unit may have a bad run capacitor or start capacitor and relay. Low voltage will also cause this problem. First you need to make sure that you have the full rated voltages at the unit, if you do, then, have the run and start capacitors checked out and the start relay.

It's hard for me to understand all of what you said, but I'd start with checking all of my fuses. Look for a blown fuse. Replace. If it blows again, you have a short somewhere.

Exterior Fan not starting.


Its the problem with the fan. !1 or more coils have burnt out and if repaired will have to rewind the shorted coil/armature. Better to replace the fan. Also when getting it repaired ask them to check the thermostat too...............sodeep

Compressor will not start.


Usually short cycling means that High side pressure is getting to high (due to not working condenser fan, or dirty condenser coil), or low side pressure is getting too low (might have low level of freon or restriction in sealed system). low side would drop dramatically if indoor blower is not running, so if air is not circulating thru evaporator coil, coil will freeze up and low side would be much lower then normal. Here is video how I found issue with package AC not coming on. Thermostat call for cool, but condenser would not come on, indoor blower runs ok.
