Need more info. Is the fan actually on full force or does it feel like the air flow is restricted (could be dirty coil or filter)

Is the fan on full force but only warm air coming out (compressor not working)

Is the fan on but only cool not cold air coming out (freon leak)

The more info you give the easiest it is to troubleshoot from here.

hope this help

How do you check a fan motor






You need to check the volts at the motor while it's running, to make sure some safety is not shutting it off. Then check the amps on the motor while it's running. Also you need to check your capacitor and wiring.

Try a new fan motor. It runs about $125.00, It will run a few min. then will trip the motor themal switch. you can probably still here the compressor running. It may also trip the breaker on shore power . good luck! the part you are looking for is a 1/3 hp 115vac 2 speed 1580/1020 rpm part number #1468-3069

See if you can reposition the thermister on the facing of the evaporator coils. That could be it or the thermister might be bad. They don't use copper/mercury sensing bulbs these days. They use these cheap thermisters.

My outside unit runs a little while then shuts off.


More likely the out door fan motor has bad bearings and that would cause the out door unit to run for 15 to 20 min but it could be low on freon
when the out door unit runs after 3 to 5 min the larger of the two copper lines going into the unit should be ice cold

If the thermostat you just installed has a time delay that will keep the indoor blower motor running for up to 5 min after the unit shuts off

Fan would not run , so i diconected the breaker on the ouside of the house waited aprox. 15 mins. and pluged it back in. the fan tried to start and it did with alittle assist but ran backwards has anybody...


Sounds like te start capacitor is defective turn power off and mark the wires exactly like they are on the capacitor. Some capacitors are dual meaning they start the compressor and fan together. But if the fan side is bad it will try to start and after too many attempts will damage the fan motor. Let me know if I am helpful or if you need more assistance. Sea Breeze

Coleman tsr mach 3 RV Air Conditioner


the fan motor bearings need lub....the shaft has a tiny access hole to put some oil into. because the fan shaft is slowing down, it is putting more strain on the voltage current, and eventually the internal breaker shuts down the ac........plus your condenser is not getting enough air accross it, compressor heats up, and it too will shut the unit down......older units have to be oiled every year, and eventually it too will fail, and a new blower motor assembly is needed or replace the ac unit.....blower motor units are around $130....now you install it or pay to have it done at around another $150 labor,,,,,try yourself, if it fails then call the tech........let me know ..ray..yyzazz@ao.com
