Sounds like somethin has bound up the fan causing the automatic circut breaker to open. Open up the fan housing and clean it out.

Air conditioner and fan will not come on ,when set a hum is heard for 15-20 seconds then shuts down


Sounds like a bad run capacitor on the outdoor fan motor. Compressor kicks on but quickly overheats because fan is not running. Good Luck!!

My GDM-12 is not cooling. when I turn the temp up it make a loud humming sound.


If the humming last 3-5 seconds then makes a faint click sound and stops humming for a minute or two. Then resumes the hum again it may be your compressor locked down. Stuck. Most likely it is just a bad start capacitor not kick starting the compressor. A $6 part.

I have my dometic Rooftop ac unit. The heatstrip/fan run perfectly but when I turn on the ac...the fan runs good but when the compressor kicks on it just hums.


The compressor coming on does make a slight "humming" sound which is normal. Is the unit cooling properly? Do you think it is louder than before?

Freezer compartment no longer cools. Continuous defrost cycle?


Good day,
Sounds more like the compressor trying to start and can't.
Pull the machine out, remove the rear cover and see if in fact the sound is coming from the compressor.

WMSD2756GES Clicking, slight burnt smell, humming then repeats


Replace the overload relays down at the compressor. Easy repair and too expensive. Do this and you'll be good to go.

Refrigerator starts -runs for two weeks, compressor won't restart


It might be but I would first check the condenser to see if it's blocked or if the condenser fan (if it has one) is not working. The "buzzing/humming/ticking" sounds you're hearing is the compressor trying to restart after it became locked down. Excessive pressures in the system or compressor overheating is usually the cause although sometimes the bearings in the compressor simply lock up.
Check to see if the fridge cycles on and off by the thermostat. If it doesn't cycle and just keeps running then the thermostat is bad and that can cause compressor failure thanks to "slugging". If it does then you want to check the defrost timer. Turn the timer's dial until it clicks into defrost and see if it comes out on its own. Check if the compressor has trouble starting after defrost. If it stays in defrost the timer is shot. If the timer times out and the compressor will not restart then the relay might be bad or, the compressor might be going bad.
A 3in1 relay/capacitor/overload might help out and give the unit a little longer time but sooner or later it will go.

Have Duo Therm roof mount A/C. Fan runs but when compressor tries to come on it just has a hum sound for about 10 seconds then after a short period of time it tries again but will not kick on


It sounds like the compressor is locked up. You can try a start boost or hard start kit but once this starts the compressor is on it's way out.

My new Amana compressor Central Air-Heat Pump hums very loudly


When it hums, is it running? Or does it not run when it hums? I'm assuming it runs when you say you have to turn the therm off to get the noise off.. If it's humming and not running, you have big problemo friend..
