If it moves easily change the capacitor, if turns hard try oiling the motor or replacing it.

Gas package unit


the bushing or the bearing in the motor may have already worn out. or may need some lubrication. the rotor is trying to turn but it's stiff and won't continue to turn. dont continue to turn on if it wont spin otherwise you'll damage the motor further. it might also be the busted capacitor "if it has"

Hello
There are a few things here that could be wrong.
1 Fan motor start capacitor is bad.Silver battery looking device on side of fan.Remove and replace with a new one.

2 Contactor for fan motor is pitted or burnt .If this is the case you will need a new contactor.

3 Fan motor is bad.Check top two before assuming this.
Check all fuses and circut breakers also.

My outside unit fan doesn't spin. i hear a clicking noise and a humming but the fan won't spin. i've tried to spin the fan and it spins freely by hand.


You may need a new start capacitor or fan motor.I would have the capacitor checked by a electrician and changed if needed. Good luck and thank you.

My LG LWHD1200FR air conditioner turns on, but the fan doesn't spin and no cold air comes out. What's the problem? How do I fix this?


Which fan doesnt spin the inside fan or outside fan? If its the outside fan try replacing the dual capacitor for the fan and the compressor. First take the fan blade and see if it spins freely if you spin it and it stops immedietly the fan bearings are bad. If it spins freely replace dual capacitor. If trhis helps please rate me and do a testimonial.

Ack the fan doesn't sound like it's working. When we turn it on I hear an electrical hum, but no fan sounds. Turning the fan up to 3 doesn't change the elecrtical hum, but since I can hear that I assume...


Yes Dan the hum means power is going to the fan motor but the shaft is seized. If the photo on this site depicts your rangehood you may be able to fix it. Turn the power to the unit off. Remove the upper cowling. You should be able to see the fan. Sometimes it only takes a spin of the fan and a bit of spray on lubricant on the shaft to free it up. If it spins freely then turn power on and give it a try. Some fans will be seized tight and no matter what you do they won't spin. This means it's time to get a new fan motor.
Good luck.

Bottom cools and top cools but dose not freeze . Do not heart fan when frezzer is opened.


you do not hear the fan ? your evaporator fan is not working - shut off everything and remove freezer panel look for any excess ice or frust blocking the fan - if everything is clear try spinning the fan blades with your hands, is there any resistence or it spins freely ? Put back cover and turn it on - if fan fails to spin then you have to get it serviced and change the evap fan motor assembly or check the control board.
your unit won't cool if the fan is not working or working erratically.

Have a duo therm penguin heat pump a/c when turning it on the compressor humms but no fan. the fan gets pretty hot upon the roof after 20 sec of operation. the main hot wire to the unit is pulling 18.5...


check the cap for the fan. Will the fan start if you spin it when you hear the humming. Check the lock rotor amperage for the compressor to see if it is hung up. The cap if it is shared could knock out both the fan and comp so check both.
