Why my A/C condenser fan won t stop running, dodge ram 2008


To clarify, the compressor and fan will run in defrost mode. The compressor and fan runs to dry out the air blowing onto the windshield.
Now if the condenser fan runs in "heat" you may have a problem with the fan relay or the main controller.

My frige & freezer do not cool,light & freezer fan run,compressor & coil fan do not run,air is blowing out of air vent in freezer,no cooling at all


If the compressor isn't running, the refrigerator or freezer won't cool - period. Hopefully, by now, you've had a repair technician come and troubleshoot the problem.

Condenser Fan Shuts off after 15-20min, Compressor continues to run but gets hot


Condenser fan motor or motor wiring is bad. That compressor should never run without the fan. Good luck.

I have a True GDM10 that won't cool. Motor runs normal, Evap fan is running, no ice build up, just won't cool. Is this a coolant problem and can a True GDM10 be recharged? See no hook ups in t


First let me ask, are you sure the compressor is running? If you verified that it was running by vibrations in the compressor area just know that the condenser fan can also cause those if your machine has one. The way to tell is if the compressor is generating heat. With that said, assuming that the compressor is running, and all applicable fans are running, you need to determine if the machine was losing cool over time or did it happen overnight? If the latter of the two you'll need to isolate where the leak is, be it the evaporator or the compressor area. To actually add freon to the system if no access ports are available you;ll need to get a piercing valve, I personally use pt# bpv-31 bullet piercing valves.

My fridge gets really hot on top and between the fridge and freezer where the door meets


next time send the model number and brand name.usually when this happens is the condenser fan motor isn't working.pull the fridge out,remove the bottom back panel and check the fan to see if it's working,if it is check the condenser coil to see if it's filled with lint and dust,it could just need to be cleaned out but if it's that hot most likely the fan isn't running,if you get this tonight check it now,if the fan isn't running you could blow the compressor,the condenser fan blows and keeps the compressor cool enough so it doesn't overheat by moving the hot air and the heat also esscapes through the condenser coil so if that's clogged with dust the machine will run hotter than normal,if the fan isn't running you can stick any window fan back there and blow it onto the compressor to keep it cool until you fix the condenser fan motor,this way you won't loose any food and if the compressor goes it's new fridge time,to much to repair.hope this helps and good luck with your machine.one more thing,i've found the fans not running and by pushing the blade it runs again,if this happens the fan could run and never have a problem or it could stop an hour later but i would change it out no matter what.if it's a G.E. fridge and the motor isn't running,most likely it will be the computer board,i've found 10 machines doing this and the temp. settings turning on and off or the evap fan motor in the freezer runs slow and then fast and the condenser fan isn't running or running slowly,this is why you have to send the brand name and model number.

Refrigerators is not blowing cool enough air to freeze or cool each side respectively.


I assume the compressor is running since you indicate you have some cool air.

Check to make sure the compressor fan is running. This fan should be near the compressor. Its purpose is to pull room air across the coils and remove the heat from them. If this fan does not operate properly, the refrigerant will not be cycled properly. If the fan is not turning, you will need to replace the fan motor.

Thermostat ?


The Air conditioner are good only the adjustment of thermostat are the problem, select the thermostat in lower #3 you observe the thermostat will off in such time temperature reach to #3 If you full adjustment the compressor will not off.
In fan selector the compressor will autamatic off because no connection attached fan only .
