If this is an older refrigerator it is possable that either the condenser fan or the evaporator fan is worn out. If a fridge has been turned off with the door closed the evaporator fan shaft will rust and stop running. The symptoms of stop and starting of the fan leads me to think that the fan needs replaced. Still yet we will need more Q&A to help you on this problem.

PTAC stops running after a short time


Sounds like a voltage or amp draw issue. So how about if you only try to run the blower??

It does sound like a bad fan motor. With the compressor getting hot you may need to change the start relay, overload and run capacitor if it continues to run like this with a defective fan motor. What is the correct model number? Sea Breeze

Cooling fan continues to run after engine shut off.


The fan runs for a short time, after ignition off, to continue to cool the hot engine.

Radiator fan constantly runs even when ignition is off. It continues until it drains the battery.


Under the hood should be a fuse box with a relay marked for the fan. Remove the relay and see if the fan stops running. It's possible that the relay latched and is stuck. There should be another relay in the panel that is the same as the fan relay. Try swapping them. If the fan continues to run, there could be a short underneath the fuse box (Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep were known for their fuse boxes corroding and shorting), or it's a possibility that the engine computer is telling the fan to run even when off indicating a bad computer. I would lean toward the fuse box however.

My fridge just stopped working, and no one can tell me what's wrong


Actually it is a long description to explain but in short, defrost fridge/freezer for 12 hours then after cleaning water up, run fridge again. If it continues, there is very possibly a defrost component issue or the fan is faulty.

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.

GE Central A/C Unit about 30 yrs old; condenser fan stops after a short time.


I gather that it is the outdoor fan motor that runs a bit then stops.

Fan motors that stop by themselves are overheating and going into self-protect. The fact that you replaced the motor and capacitor opens up a whole world of "which wire is in the wrong place". I could do this if I could see it, but I can't see it. You're probably going to wind up calling a service man to sort out the wiring.
