Repair USA is correct. You can also test the wiring buy removing either the red or green wire from furnace control. These wires energize the blower. Remember to tape down the door switch after you remove it to get to the furnace control. If the blower runs with either of thoes wires off, you have a bad control. If it does not, look at the wiring or thermostat as Repair USA indicated.

Check the thermostat and make sure it is in the auto position. If that does not correct the problem you will need to disconnnect power to the unit, unhook the thermostat wires and plug power back in. If tha corrects the problem it is either in the wiring or the thermostat. If the fan continues to run, replace the furnace control board.

Fan not working on outside AC unit

The buzzing noise is probably the fan motor. Is the compressor running? First make sure that there are no tripped breakers. After that kill the power and check the capacitor with a multimeter. If that checks good then check the fan motor windings with the multimeter. Let me know if you have any questions.

Outside fan runs constantly Aux Heat only 50%

Let's start out by your statement that the fan would not run, then you changed the contactor, not it won't stop running.
I believe, based on your info, here's what you need to do. Kill power to the unit. The 2 wires bringing power to the outdoor unit should be on the top 2 terminals. The 2 fan wires should be on the bottom 2 terminals. This is providing that the contactor is mounted Vertical. The could be an outside chance that the unit has a short in it and you are getting voltage feedback somewhere.
Take another look.

Ouside unit runs continuously, even if system is off

Outside unit runs continuously, even when system is off.

On A/C units, there is a low voltage line that leads to a contactor, which engages to close the high voltage circuit to the condensor unit. Over time, the accual contacts in the contactor can weld themselves together. Try shutting off your furnace breaker but leaving on the one for the outside condensor unit. If it still runs, your contactor probably needs replaced. Contact a licensed electrician or HVAC contractor and tell them you think your contactor is in need of replacement. Is a fairly simple and quick replace, but the contactor itself is not cheap.

Fan runs for a minute then slows and stops.

Sounds like the capacitor..

Don't run it until the problem is fixed..

IF and only IF - you are pretty handy and have knowledge,,
Perhaps you could try this...

BE SURE POWER IS OFF to the ac unit..
Cut the breakers OFF in the breaker box !!

Inside the unit – the capacitor is metal & looks kinda like a can (round or oval) & has 3 wire connections at the top..

Do not remove capacitor until you have a new replacement to put in..
Be careful to not mix up the wire sequence..
Change one wire at a time and be very sure..

A capacitor is cheaper than a fan motor - and makes the most sense to replace..

If you are not at all comfortable trying this - get a ac company with a trained tech out to do it..

Hope this helps !!

Carrier home ac system

sounds like your contactor is stuck closed.This is the part that high voltage connects to and lets power through to the compressor and condenser fan motor when you get a call for cooling.If you go to pull it out,kill the power outside AND at the furnace.

Fan not turning outside

Is the outside compressor running? Check the fuses in the outside disconnect by the outside condensing unit. Also check the breaker for the A/C in the main power panel.
