    run capacitor or motor going bad

  • Samuel Charles Spriggs May 11, 2010

    There is a run capacitor in line with the fan. This is probably faulty.

Sounds like the compressor is turning off cause of high pressure. check the coil that the exhaust hose connects to, if dirty clean it. if the fan is not blowing enough air threw the coil the unit will build up high side pressure and cut out, but will turn back on when pressure drops. if that dont help, maybe the fan motor is bad or needs taken apart and oiled.

Spontaneously stops working and then comes on after 5 minutes. Why?


Sounds like the magnetron is overheating. There is an automatically-resetable thermal circuit breaker attached to the magnetron. Most likely your problem is caused by either a cooling fan that is not running, or is running too slow (caused by gummed-up bearings). In some over-the-range (OTR) microwave ovens, the exhaust fan is run at a slow speed to cool the magnetron, and if it's bearings get gummed up, it won't run on the slow speed. But if it's a new OTR microwave, then the exhaust fan may be pointing the wrong way. (It is rotatable, depending on the installation). For example, if it is pointing up, but you don't have an exhaust vent over the microwave, then the air has nowhere to go, and the magnetron will overheat.

SPT WA-1220H Portable Air Conditioner stopped blowing COOL air?


sounds like the compressor has died and is tripping its overload protection. Give it a good funeral, and next time, buy a brand name model.

Why did SPT Portable Air Conditioner stopped blowing cold air?


Unit needs to be taken apart and washed out , also check to see if motor turns freely by hand , clean base of unit fans / blowers and drain ports / channels . Check outdoor motor to see if bearings are tight or fan overheats and cuts off if so replace outdoor motor .

Ed, there are several things that can cause this problem, but all are solvable.

1. The current temperature setting is not low enough.

2. The air intake filter needs to be removed and cleaned.

3. The water collection tank is full and needs to be drained.

4. Obstruction in the exhaust hose(s).

Be sure to turn the unit OFF & unplug it, before attempting any service work on the unit.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot & solve the problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

How do I get my LG 12000 BTU ac/dehumidifier to dehumidify


This is a quote from the manufacturer.

Dry mode is used to remove humidity from the room
without additional cooling. Once the set temperature
is reached, the compressor and circulation fan turns
off and only the exhaust fan will run. Fan speed is
pre-set and cannot be adjusted.

Sounds like a strip down of the fan and lubricate the bearings with sewing machine or thin cycle oil will do the trick.

the cutting in and out is indicating that it has reached its internal thermal limits .. its too hot inside .. that trips a thermal breaker .. the breaker resets when the unit cools ... the problem is almost always caused by not enough air flow ... the intake is blocked or dust has accumulated preventing proper air flow ... or the fan could be not running or running too slow .. make sure it turns freely ... clean out any dust and filters if any ... make sure air intake and exhaust are not blocked ...

Whirlpool portable AC, compressor works, but no exhaust fan


there are 3 possiblities 
  1. something obstructing the lower fan motor (or exhaust motor)
  2. bad fan capacitor
  3. or bad motor
to check any of these you will need to disassemble the unit to get to the blower. there are several screws located at various points on the plastic housing covering the unit. Once removed you should be able to check for motor obstructions visually. for checking the motor and capacitor you will need a volt/ohm meter and ideally a capacitor checker. you could try to spin start the motor while it is powered up this could be a possible sign of a bad capacitor if it will start when you do this or if the motor will spin freely while powered down and will not spin start when powered up. I know that is kind of confusing but its how they work. GO FIGURE.  thanks Peyton

Exhaust Fan - Compressor turns off


sounds like a fan motor problem, if the motor cuts out it will cause the compressor to overheat and shut it down. if
brand new you can probably exchange it . if not it can be repaired under warranty if less than a year old.

Unit Cools for two minutes and takes a three minute break.


There is a safety shutting down the compressor. Either the thermal overload is cutting it off because its getting too hot for some reason. Dirty coil, filter or fan speed, though you said the fan is running so that's out. Does the compressor feel really hot when its cycling on and off? If its not, its possible the thermal disc is bad, but unlikely. The other safety is low pressure (freon) You kind of need a set of A/C gauges to test this accurately. Hope this helps. These safeties are there to prevent the compressor from burning out, when something small is the problem, as its the most expensive part. You sound like have covered all the bases, so check the coils and filter, if there still is a problem, then you need to call a service tech. for warranty.
