Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

My fedders air conditioner motor starts to squeal and then locks up. If you leave it off for 30 minutes or so, you can start it back up and it will run for 25-30 minutes. I pulled the unit out of its slide in case, and the motor is hot enough to burn you. Is the motor going out, or is there another problem?

Emits high pitched whistling after unit runs for 30 minutes


Sounds to me like the bearings are going bad in the motor. The hotter it gets the grease breaks down and the squealing starts.

Purchased a fedders a/c 18000 unit still under warranty. called the 800# they said company had filed bankruptcy and were not responsible for repairs. 350$ mistake. Fan runs too slow for unit to kick in....


Check the capacitor for the fan motor. You can do that with a multimeter with the capacitor test function or if the capacitor looks swollen then it is probably bad. Also, make sure the fan rotates freely by hand. Let me know if you need more help.

Maytag M6Y18F7A Air Conditioner troble light turns off


you have to open the unit up or atleast see if the fan is failing. The blower motor is usually a double shaft and cool the compressor and also blows the air across the evaporator. Look for the air to stop blowing then the compressor to shake from overheating.
