It can also be a problem with either the start or run windings in the outdoor fan motor, meaning that it needs to be replaced

Outside unit will only run for a short amount of time with A/C before the fan stops turning and starts humming, squealing/screeching and the top of the outside unit gets hot.


The bearings are bad in the motor and after the fan runs enough it eventually gets hot, making the bearing screech and the fan locks up. Need to replace motor again. See if it has a warranty. The reason it gets hot is because the fan is what removes the heat from the coil and if the fan isn't running there is nothing to cool it off so to speak.

1994 ford tours runing hot.replaced water


If you had a crack in your head you should be losing water inside/outside the engine, the same with a head gasket, check for water running down the outside of block and the exhast for excess water discharge, I know will sould stupid but did you insert the thermostat in the correct way? spring facing downwards?. The only other thing i can think of is if you have a collapsed rubber hose somewhere.

Rheem outside a/c fan won't turn off


I would probably start at the thermostat and see if 24 volts is continued to be applied to the yellow wire which calls for unit activity even though you have called this off. Shorting the cool (yellow) wire to the return (red) wire will cause the HVAC system to begin cooling and the fan will be turned on automatically.

My car runs hot


Yes, thermostat could be closed shut. Thermostats are pretty cheap and easy to replace. If the car has never had one replaced, I'd start there..

Not cooling


every single component in your cooling unit is needed for it to work, so anything can shut it down. If you could provide more information as to what type of unit you have: is it a central heat and air package unit? or central split system (furnace indoors and condenser outside)? or a wall a/c? Does any part of the system/unit do anything?

1998 Jeep Cherokee NO HEAT


Hi if the heater fan is working properly and blowing into the jeep then that rules out the fan being the problem and depending on how the temp switch works it will either be cable switch ie when you turn the dial it pulls cable adjusting the flaps near the heater rad allowing hot air in or blocking it off so it just let cold air in from the outside.
Now if its an electronic switch this could be your problem you can take switch out and clean the contacts
Is the loss of heat the reason you changed the rad and thermstat or has this problem come after you changed the rad and thermstat.
If the problem occured after you fitted rad and thermstat then your problem is 100% blocked air in water system if this is the case then you need to bleed the system getting all the air out.
What you need to look for is plastic screws attached to any water hose dont undo these with engine hot as the pressure will force water out burning whoever is doing it with cool engine undo these and let any air out.
If air isnt the problem then you will need to replace the heater switch one way of checking for air is by touching the water pipes when engine has been running and see if their is any temp differance anyway its worth bleeding the system anyway just to rule this out.
The heater works off seperat rad that is fed by the main rad the heater rad is located towards back of engine towards the bottom you will see two water pipes running into the bulk head these are the feed and return pipes for the heater rad if you get the engine warm enough to open the thermostat for few minutes then touch both of these for temp if it is an air isuue then one will be cooler than the other let me know ok

Goodman split unit that heats instead of cools


Hi, Could be a run capacitor on the fan motor. They usually swell up and or leak when they go bad. If not, the only real way to test them it with a specific capacitor tester. A new capacitor would be cheaper. Make sure that the outside unit is disconnected from power before opening it up, try to spin the fan blade by hand. If it doesn't spin freely it may need oiled if possible. See above solution. Your problem is the fan motor though so if this don't do it, It will have to be replaced. If this helps, Please rate my solution. Thanks, kstfas
