    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

The furnace is running but there is no cool air. I change my filters every month and I flushed out the water lines last month.


flushing out water lines do you mean condensate line coming off the furnace that drain to the outside. is the condensing unit outside running when u have it in cooling mode. by condensing unit I mean the unit outside that has lines that run to the inside. does that turn on when u have it in cooling. the unit outside have two components that should turn on the outdoor condenser fan and a compressor.

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.

Sometimes on new units it is common for the fan to not start until you give it a push. Did you happen to hear if the compressor was operating? If the unit was froze-up the Insulated Suction line would also be iced over as well. If it wasn`t it is more likely that either the compressor was not operating or it shutoff due to
high discharge pressure and can only be reset on its
own or cooling the compressor off with cold water.

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.

Outside makes loud noise


I would take a very close look at every solder joint there is between the inside unit and the outside. If you observe oil at any point it indicates a leak at that point. That is an expensive price for what you say was done. Check your invoice for the amount of refrigerant they or he added to the system. Compare it with the amount stated on the outside unit nameplate. Check for frost on the suction (big line) by the outside unit. If there is frost your coil is frozen up. If this is the case turn the fan on and the cooling off. Allow it to run in this manor for about an hour to defrost the A coil. Then return to the cooling mode.

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.
