Most of the time if the compressor runs but not the fan, it is one of two things either burned/broken wires causing bad connection or bad capacitor. Simply replace capacitor with a capacitor with the EXACT same specifications and you are good to go.

During these storms power gets shut down fora sec and comes back with a tsunami type surge. why? Because the generators are going full blast at the electrical plant in your area. No load is applied anf they sky rocket into Zapland babes! Any slight glitch or momentary outage causes a surge. It goes away but it comes back with a fury. So if your AC's run cap is a little old and tired from workin that condenser like it ain't not thang, Then the resulting surge will zap that puppy and it will look like this:

My Trane TWE036C140B0 is not blowing cool air i have turned off the TSTAT and still not getting any cool air the outside fan is working and the lines are not frozen


Sounds like your compressor is not running check your run cap. Most tranes I work on has a start cap it will be a black color and the run will be a shiny silver. If you have a multimeter you can check the caps. You will need a meter that has micro Fards and the caps have the ratings written on them.

Hello, if the compressor is running on the outside unit and the fan is not either you have a bad capacitor or a bad fan motor, if the fan starts with a push then your capacitor is bad, if it does not the motor is shot.

My york central air condenser keeps running. It cools but, it just keeps running.


Some possible problems..turn thermostat where AC compressor should not run. measure lo voltage to the contactor in the compressor housing. If there is voltage there then thermostat is defective. Remove one lead of lo voltage at contactor. Compresor should stop. If not contacts are stuck. Replace or burnish contacts..

Freezer / Refrigerator not cooling


When the fans are running the compressor should also be running. If the compressor is hot but not running you have a compressor problem. If the compressor is running check for frost on back wall of the freezer compartment which would indicate a defrost system problem. At five years old have you cleaned the condenser where the heat is transferred to the outside air in the room?

If nothing is running outside at times you probably have a weak contactor coil that is not pulling the contactor in all the time. If the outside fan comes on but not the compressor, the compressor is over heating and shutting off on overload protection. This could be a dirty condenser coil, low on refrigerant, the compressor it's self. The compressor comes with a 5 yr. warranty.

if the fan outside is running then feel the compressor outside or listen to it if you can notice that the compressor is running the same time the outside fan is running also.

it could be that the compressor is not running.

but if you can notice that the compressor is making a different sound as it turn on, then the compressor is running but not cooling, then you could have a leak problem. there is no or little refrigerant in the system.

if you have a leak, please contact your local repair man to do it.

Fridge Stopped cooling


If the fan isn't running the "cold" won't make it to the refer section and the freezer won't get proper circulation of air. The "evaporator fan" must run when the compressor is running.
