Question about Kenmore Heating & Cooling
My central air conditioning stopped working last evening. At first, I would hear a humming sound coming from the outside unit, and the fan seemed to be spinning slower than usual. I turned off the A/C at the thermostat for a few minutes then turned it back on. I could then hear a short buzz sound coming from the outside unit - it would buzz for a second or so, then wait about 10 seconds then buzz again. The fan did not move at all.
I then shut off the A/C and flipped the breaker, and checked to see if the fan blades would spin freely - there was almost no resistance, so the motor bearing haven't ceased.
Any thoughs on what might be the problem?
Check the start capacitor. You may be able to see visual deformaty, otherwise, use a meter. The buzzing is most likely the contactors closing which uses a seperate 24v supply..
