Make sure you power to the unit. If you do, check the contactor and the low voltage wiring

Coolant fan doesn't come on unless I run air conditioner.


"Coolant Fan" is not necessarily a common term used to refer to any particular fan in a standard HVAC system. Are you referring to the "Indoor Fan" that circulates the air within the living space???? OR are you referring to the "Outdoor Fan" or "Condensor Fan" that circulates the air across the outdoor coil ??

If its the indoor fan on an air handler that's not running unless its in A/C mode, it will be a faulty heating circuit fan relay on the main control board.

If its the outdoor fan and its a heat pump system the outdoor fan stops during the defrost mode so there is a slight possibility the system defrost board is faulty and stuck in defrost.

A little more information may help obtain a more specific answer.

How to troubleshoot thermostat wiring?


I'm not sure if the thermostat is wired correctly. First, the thermostat is wired directly to the outdoor unit (compressor/condenser unit). It is NOT directly connected to the indoor unit. It connects to a low voltage control panel in the outdoor unit that sends a signal to your indoor fan/evaporator. This wire is called the fan relay switch and physically runs between the low voltage controls of the indoor and outdoor units. If the fan relay is bad it's possible that the unit runs continuously. To prevent destroying your outdoor unit there is a safety feature that prevents the indoor fan from shutting down while the outdoor unit is running. If the indoor fan did shut down while the outdoor unit was running than you would slug your compressor. That is, your compressor normally sees refrigerant gas but is instead seeing refrigerant liquid. That would not be good since this scenario would destroy your compressor. It sounds like a faulty fan relay. The actual contactor portion of the relay is in the outdoor unit.

Mitsubishi mr slim compressor fan won't turn off


The outdoor fan is supposed to be on almost all the time if the indoor unit is on. It is designed to do this due to energy consumption is from the start of motors. These fans use nearly no electric about as much as a light bulb. If your unit is cooling and no problems have occurred then its probably doing what is supposed to

I would start by inspecting the contactor make sure you are getting full voltage thru it to your fan and compressor. Usually there is a capacitor for the fan and one for the compressor. Make sure they are getting proper power and that capacitors are good. check amp draw and go from there,

Its possible that the contactor that closes to start the outdoor unit is not pulling in and passing power. You are hearing the coil humming since it is getting control power. Also first check that breaker for outdoor unit is not tripped

Indoor fan slow to rotate in heat mode and no heat/compressor


The indoor fan will not run at normal fan speed untill the indoor coil reaches 32oC. This is done so that a cold draught is not felt when outdoor unit is not running. Check to make sure the outdoor unit is operating. If the outdoor fan is running but there is no indoor fan after 5 mins then you must likely have a gas issue or a fault compressor circuit.
