    Sounds like your fan motor is over heated. It may be that the capacitor has gone bad or that the motor is siezed up. Do you have access to a tester that reads micro farads to test capacitor?

Maybe you have a bad duel run capacitor. That capacitor would cause both the fan motor and compressor to heat up and turn off on internal overload. You may want to have a qualified techician test your system.

Not cooling


are you talking about a central a/c system? the fan that blows is the indoor air fan? check breakers for outside unit. one breaker in the house panel box and a breaker at the outside unit. because other wise tha cap or contactor (for the outside unit) may be bad. both of witch may keep unit from turning on. unless you are knowledgeable about electricity I would not recommend opening the outdoor unit. you could get electrocuted. safety first

My air conditioner starts blowing like a fan before my apartment is cooled off, why does it kick off and on like this?


When you first turn it on the fan runs and after a few minutes the outside unit comes on, once the outside unit comes on it take time for it to cool the coils which cool the house, And a/c does not really cool the air,It removes the heat that is in the air.

Heat pump not cooling


You may have a bad running capacitor on the outdoor unit. It is a round or oval can with three sets of prongs on it. Over time they can either become weak or swell due to an overload.

My AC unit keeps freezing up on the copper lines going into the house from the outside unit. It also freezes up on the inside lines and the air is not cooling my home down.


Operate your air conditioner with the fan in the on position. But first turn the fan on, turn the temp up or shut the cooling off. Your coil is more than likely frozen over. At night when outside temperature drops the refrigerant pressure and temperature in the system also drops. This action can cause icing of the cooling coil, with the fan in automatic everything shuts down at the end of a cooling cycle. Thus no air movement to melt ice on previous cooling cycle.
