Outside unit will only run for a short amount of time with A/C before the fan stops turning and starts humming, squealing/screeching and the top of the outside unit gets hot.


The bearings are bad in the motor and after the fan runs enough it eventually gets hot, making the bearing screech and the fan locks up. Need to replace motor again. See if it has a warranty. The reason it gets hot is because the fan is what removes the heat from the coil and if the fan isn't running there is nothing to cool it off so to speak.

I have a ceiling fan with lights, last night the fan was turned on for the first time since summer, the remote is over the light switch. The remote to turn on the lights is used normally. Since turning...


There is a small relay in the ceiling fan causing this noise, try turning off all power to the ceiling fan and allow it to set for a couple of minutes. Turn it back on and see if it goes away. If it does great. if not, it may not be worth the repair cost but it can be fix by an appliance tech.

Carrier Compressor Issues?


When you shut it off and back on it slugged the compressor if you turn it off and back on before the pressures equalize between the high and low sides it will slug the compressor and it will not run should let sit for five minutes or so before restarting. The humming is either the compressor making noise usually common for the compressor to make some noise or the fan motor bearings are getting bad on the outside unit. If the unit works normal probably not much you can do till it breaks if it is the compressor it is more economical to replace the whole unit if it is just the fan motor it is worth changing. You could take an amp draw on the fan motor and the compressor to see if the are within the limits on the name plate of the outside unit.

Dryer only hums when I turn the knob.


Something has seized the motor. It could be something in the blower(pen pencil, golf tee, you'd be surprised what can get in there). It could also be a seized bearing on the motor. There are electrical things that could have those symptoms but I would check the mechanical ones first. Let me know what you find.

Air Handler Blower Unit Humming


More then likely it's the transformer. It may be getting weak. I've seen them hum/vibrate almost new and last for years. It's more an annoyance than anything.
