SOURCE: fan not blowing

Even when the power is off at the unit outside the thermostat will supply power to the contactor of the outside unit. This may give a hum or buzz as you stated. If when the power is on to the outside unit the fan tries to start but only hums the motor may be bad. Does the compressor start and run?

Unit is over heating and setting the internal limit switch. Capacitor an/or outdoor fan could be failing.

SOURCE: FAN WILL RUN BUT COMPRESSOR

weather kings are like that (junk),i install 8 or more a week on new houses,they all do that.yours is a 3.5 ton which is what i set.if the t-stat calles for a/c within 5 mins of it turning off after a cycle,the compressor has a protection built in which keeps the compressor from coming right back on when it just stoped.they say its to keep it from burning up from going on and off alot.

If you have replaced the run capacitor and the fan still is running slow you definitley need to replace the motor no doubt. you can go online to Grainger.com or find one by your house. Your compressor is going off immediately because high pressure thats a good thing. Get a new fan and a new capacitor and you should be good.

Goodman heatpump fan runs, condenser wont start


Either the condenser fan has bad bearings, or it has a defective fan capacitor.
Turn off the breaker to the outside unit.
Spin the fan blade by hand.
If the fan blade spins easily and will spin a few revolutions with no problem the fan bearings are good.
If not, replace the fan motor due to bad bearings.
I am pretty sure you fan motor is bad because with a bad capacitor the fan motor will not get up to speed and may just sit and overheat.
I'm leaning toward a bad fan motor.

Out of the blue, my Carrier 38tkb fan is not working; we hear a humming sound inside the outside unit; the unit is 7-yrs old and had no issues so far; any idea where we could find a service manual...


Hello, if the compressor is running then it is either a bad capacitor or bad fan motor, an easy way. To check is try to spin the fan blade with a thin object, if this gets the motor going the capacitor is bad if not the motor is shot.

I have a Trane AC unit, model HIDE036506A which is about 14 years old. The fan and compressor all of a sudden stopped. I can start the fan by hand but the compressor sounds like it wants to start but...


sounds as if the fan motor is getting hot and going off on internal overload (safety). - which causes the compressor to heat up and also go off.
When this happens the usual 'fix' is to replace the motor although you can try replacing the capacitor.
Since you only see one (capacitor) it's possible it's a 'dual capacitor' which means it's the serving the compressor AND the fan motor.
I would replace the fan motor.
Note: I've seen 'shorted' fan motors before - where the blade just barely turns and you would not want to touch the blade because it will give you an electrical shock.
I would be very careful touching the blade of that motor with the power on.-

38CKC060 Carrier. Outdoor unit-fan does not spin, noise and very hot inside the cage!


It sounds like your fan motor is burnt up. If the noise you are hearing is coming from the motor itself, then it's going to have to be replaced. One way to check this also is to turn the unit off and try to turn the fan blades by hand, if you cant get to it, then use something skinny and long enough to drop through the opening on top. If there is any resistance, than its difinitly a bad motor. If the noise you are hearing is coming from the compressor, then your fan motor still might have a chance and only needs a capacitor which is a round or oval part inside the units electrical compartment. Depending on how mechanically inclined you are, it is possible to fix these yourself. Just a warning though, if your fan hasn't been running and the compressor has, it can or could burn up the compressor also. This is another reason why it can be hot inside the cage. Your compressor will go into internal lockout if it gets to hot and will not come back on until it cools, but it can only handle so much. Hope this points you in the right direction and good luck!

I have a carrier outside unit 38YKB036310 unit It comes on & cools but after around a half hour it shuts down. The fan motor feels hot I replaced it (the fan motor) & still have the same problem.


does just the fan motor shut down and you can hear the compressor still running when this happens?
did you replace the running capacitor for the new motor? is the motor a compatable replacement? how many amps is the motor drawing?amps should be close or under nameplate rating? is the outdoor coil clean?did you reinstall the fan blade the same depth as the old one?do you have the proper voltage to the motor?

The dividing strip between the freezer & fridge is hot.


Pull the refrig out and remove the rear cardboard panel . Check to see if something is caught in the fan blade stopping it from turning . Also , make sure the black square coils are clean . If the fan is not turning , and no obstruction , replace the fan motor . Use a small house fan to cool the compressor until the motor is replaced or the compressor could stop working .

Goodman A/C won't cool


Fan motor or capacitor has gone out. Running the unit with the motor not running can cause damage to your compressor

I have an older Goodman CKB 18-1


FOR QUESTION 1: They do run independantly. What will happen when your compressor is running but your outdoor fan does not, the pressures in the system will go really high and compressor will overload. That outdoor fan is used to disipate all the heat that is transferred from the inside to the outdoor unit.
FOR QUESTION 2: If you hear humming it can be 2 things. FIrst one is that that capacitor went bad. Dependiing if its a dual run capacitor(which helps both compressor and fan motor) or they both have individual capacitors. The second would be a bad fan motor. OPen your service panel outside to the AC. Find your capacitor for you fan motor. if there are 2 , locate the one that goes to your fan motor. Check it out(if its blown physically youll will notice it like really bubbled, like swollen) then change itout. Or you will have a dual run capacitor that runs both compressor and fan motor. It will have the terminals marked (Fan, Common, Herm) Bsically check your capacitor mfd(micro fared rating, it will say on the capacitor what its rated) Get a multi meter and put in the "MFD' selection. Before you check any capacitor you have to discharge the the voltage charge it has. Use an insulated handle screwdriver and just place the metel part across the capacitor leads. Basicall short them out. Then proceed with checks...hope this helps( remember to always pull the disconnect out from the box outside to cut power)

High Pressure cutoff


YOUR OUTDOOR FAN MOTOR SHOULD NEVER SHUT OFF IN THE AC MODE. IT IS SUPPOSED TO SHUT OFF IN THE HEAT MODE WHEN ITS IN DEFROST. IF THE UNIT IS RUNNING IN COOL AND THE OUTSIDE MOTOR QUITS ,THE COMPRESSOR WILL QUIT SOON AFTER. EITHER THE RUN CAPACITOR FOR THE FAN IS BAD OR THE FAN MOTOR ITSELF IS BAD, IF CAP IS GOOD THEN THE MOTOR IS At FAULT. THE OUTDOOR PRESSURE SWITCH CAN ALSO OPEN IF THE INDOOR FAN MOTOR FAILS IN HEAT OR THE FILTER IS PLUM NASTY in heat OR THE INDOOR COIL IS PLUGGED UP in heat.. THE PRESSURE SWITCH USUALLY TRIPS AT 400 TO 425 SO ITS WORKING CORRECTLY. YOU MAY BE CONFUSING THE ISSUE SAYING THAT THE AIR IS HOT AND COLD INSIDE. IT IS COLD WHEN AC IS RUNNING HOT WHEN HEAT PUMP IS RUNNING IN HEAT BUT ESSENTIALLY not cold or hot if compressor isn't running, but a lot of folks describe the lack of cold air as hot when the compressor isnt running. but it basically is warm or house air temp.you test the capacitor with a capacitor tester or take it to motor shop and let them test it. odds are its a 5 , 7.5 or a 10. it should test within 10 % of rated value . ask for a RESCUE brand replacement motor. they are great ,reversable etc.carefully oil and sand the motor shaft and note exactly where the blade was located in relation to the grill so you get it back just the same. usually they wire up black to a leg of 220 power. white to the other leg of 220 power. brown and brown with white stripe to the capacitor.you can also pull whole fan shroud assembly on some units and take whole thing to motor shop and let them test motor cap, replace and all you do is return to unit and connect two power leads,
