Hey there, ok, now if the fan is spinning and the compressor is buzzing, the compressor is locked up and needs to be replaced. If neither is running and the buzzing is coming from the control panel on the unit, it could be the contactor. Also there is a chance that the fan motor burned up, causing the compressor to fail so the fan would be off but the compressor is buzzing and locked up. If nothing is running also check the circuit breaker it could just be he conactor you are hearing. At that point you need to figure out why the breaker tripped. Let me know what you find out

My Carrier 43B00HP - 1 is not blowing cool air. The fan is working but the cool air isnt coming out. If you turn it on and leave it on for awhile it turns off by itself


Please check your compressor whether it takes correct amphs. Due to weak in capacitor and also less rpm of fan motor the compressor gets overheated and it turns the unit off. If capacitor weak change it. If less rpm on fan motor change fan capacitor or fan motor.

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.

Ac fan not turning on I can ''stick start it'' but which direction?


The condensor fan should be sucking air from the top and blowing it through the coils, probably a counter clockwise direction. The buzzing/humming sound is confusing to me. A humming sound sounds like a motor that can not turn over to start. A starting capacity would be needed. Just because you changed it out last year does not mean it is good. A buzzing sound sounds like a contactor problem. Contactors buzz and after a while, they will fail. In any case, you can "stick start" the condensor fan PROVIDED you are sure the ac compressor is working (this is for a short and temporary use). Also, you may have a high load duty capacitor that assists in the unit running. This will affect your condensor fan operation if it is not good. Unless you know all the components and operations of ac electrical, I would highly recommend calling out a professional.

My Carrier AC fan will not turn, only blows out warm air.


Breaker has popped either at breaker box or at the safety shut off switch. Fuses are blown or the sending unit has popped.

Carrier fan unit


Poke the fan blade with a stick to see if the bearings are seized up. If it turns easily, you have an electrical problem, like a bad capacitor.

Loud buzzing after heating up


the buzzing is normal.  there is an element inside the quartz tube much like a filament in a light bulb.  as this heats up it starts to move.  where you have electrical energy you also have magnetism produced. metal objects vibrate when they are in or within a magnetic field. the element is tungsten wire and vibrates off this magnetic field.
