Your system sounds like it is iced. Two usual causes are 1. low on refrigerant (Freon is Dupont's brand name for refrigerant) 2. and/or poor air flow across evap. coil in home. Now when the unit ices air can not get thru the iced evap. coil so it seems like the indoor blower is not blowing hard. Maybe the indoor blower is cause of problem as when they stop or run slow the system will ice, too.
It would be best to have a qualified technician test your system to find cause. You should turn off system until a technician tests it.
P. S. A clogged air filter will cause icing, also!

Heater fan does not work when below freezing outside

There could be water entering the blower motor that is freezing and not letting the motor spin. You can remove the blower motor and inspect for water. If there is water in the motor... the source of the leak will have to be pinpointed.

Model No. 8333C876, The Fan keeps freezing up. Is there a way to fix it, without buying another one ?

Hi, if by freezing up you mean that it wont turn, then I suggest maybe the bearings are out of lubricant. You may be able to disassemble the fan motor and regrease the bearings, or maybe replace the bearings, They are not very expensive, It will take about an hour to replace the bearings. have fun regards

I turned the power on my freezer as now we decided to use it , before it was working fine it became very hot inside and the fan on the top didnot start?

Too many things can go wrong, but try this first, The fan on the top must be turning got the unit to work. Sometimes when a unit sits up for a while the fan bearings freeze up. Try trurning the fan with your hand of a screwdriver if it has a shroud around the fan. It may start moving and ususally when it does it will be arright after that. The inside will be hot because it will go into a defrost cycle 3 or 4 times a day and that puts a lot of heat inside the unit. Also the door frames are heated. Check to see if the compressor is running. If it is the small copper line going over tt the fan will be very hot. If not its not running. Co to start with clean the radiator coils on the outside and make sure the fan by the compressor is running.

DeLonghi oil heater model HMW2400TG 10 years old. Suddenly started to activate the safety electrical switch 2-3 seconds after being switched on.

one of three things are common causes of this problem ...most likely, dust builds up enough to block air flow then the unit will overheat inside .. that will trip a thermal breaker .. the breaker will reset when the unit cools .. if that problem continues then it may trip a permanent breaker .. if that happens the unit will stop working .. take the unit outside and blow the dust out of it with air pressure.. .. another common problem is if the fan bearings start to freeze then the fan wont run fast enough to maintain proper air flow .. lubricate the fan front and back bearings with light machine oil or sewing machine oil .. don't use WD40 or oil containing teflon .. the lube life is about 5 years so yours is way overdue for oiling the bearings if you haven't done so yet.. a third problem that is common is the electrical connections inside the heater are made with crimped on rivets .. the rivets loosen sometimes with age and a hot spot is created at the loose connection (you might even see sparks there) .. that can also trip the thermal breaker and is generally not repairable at reasonable cost ...

Central air unit two part system, inside and outside. Freezes

If coils are clean and blower is working properly,
then you're probably low on freon.

During air condition mode fan does not run unit freezes up and there is a red flashing light on the circuit control board. The board # is GMP 125-5. The outside compressor work normally.

Dear tomsandi,
Either the fan motor is burnt out or it is not getting the power supply, hence the fan is not working. Since there is no air passing through the evaporator the cooling is not taken off fron the coil so it freezes. The fan motor has to checked up.

Condenser fan motors not working properly after sitting idle for several months is a very common failure. moisture collects and causes rust, bearing freeze and so on. Often simply using a tool of some kind to spin the blade slightly is enough to break the motor free and allow it to start, however, this seldom resolves the problem completely. The motor needs to be oiled and the capacitor checked and replaced if needed. In my opinion it is better to just replace the motor with a sealed outdoor rated motor with the appropriate rain guards rather than waste time on a questionable one Be sure to have the unit serviced every spring so your not caught of guard when all the techs are busy.I hope this helps GL!
