House HVAC Not Blowing

Hi all,

My house has 2 outside units for air conditioning side by side. One unit stopped blowing inside the house today. The blower fan outside on the unit is still working. I can't tell if anything is wrong with the compressor.

The other unit is blowing cold just fine.

What could this be? And how much would it cost to repair?

Thanks for any help!

    Hi thanks for the input! I tried running the fan by itself. It doesn't work. I went up into the attic and could hear the unit emit a low bzzzz-hum when the fan was turned on at the thermostat, but the fan was not blowing.

    The unit is a Goodman GMPH075-4

    So it might be the motor?

    Weird, I only clicked once for that last comment. Thanks for the advice! It was only the capacitor! Online I found it for $18.50 +S&H. BUT, that's kind of unrealistic. I wouldn't have been able to diagnose that or replace it myself.

    So it was a $69 service call + $77 for the capacitor. At least he was honest about it and not tell me it was the motor or something. So I'm happy.

    Thanks again. I wanted to provide the final resolution in case it helps someone else out in the future.

If the outside unit is running and the inside unit is not, probably a problem with the fan motor itself or its capacitor. If you have to have someone repair or replace the fan $200-$250 with parts, a capacitor for a service call and part $100 or so. Check it yourself first to see if there is anything obvious broken wire, hot connection, etc if you feel safe doing that. Turn the power off first. There is also a chance the thermostat could be the problem. Have you tried running the fan on the thermostat "fan on" setting?

    I would say its the fan motor or the capacitor. I am guessing you are not going to service it yourself so pick a reputable service co. talk to friends or maybe the person who installed it. Good luck!

Hi. I need help fixing my urka-a042jk10e Air Conditioner please. It's not blowing any air up thru the vents and my house is 97 degrees!


Possible that the compressor is not running. Call a service tech. Could be a run capacitor bad, stuck reverse valve or even a shot compressor.

My Carrier Home AC unit stopped blowing cold air today. I opened it up and cleaned everything and didn't notice anything out of place, any ideas?


This could be complicated to resolve over the internet but I'll give it a try. When you stated that it stoped blowing cold air, did it stop blowing air all together? Also is the outside unit rtunning?

Day / Night HVAC is running cool air BUT the furnace is running 2


Strange. Does the thermostat control both the air conditioning units and the furnace. If not make sure the furnace thermostat is turned down to below 65 degrees.

Central air/heat pump not putting out cold air


I have some things for you to check. If you look at the outside unit the lines going into the house. Are they frozen? Have you had any yard work done, the reason I ask is they could have accidentally cut or pulled out the thermostat wires to the ac unit. Also, inside check for the same thing, frozen lines. Also, you may want to check the drain coming from the inside unit, it may be clogged.

A/c unit not working. Have thermistat set on 65 and temp. in house is around 85. check the breaker box for the house and it have not tripped


You must make sure that there is power to both the inside unit and outside unit. Is the room air blower blowing? If not you have either a plugged filter, iced up coil, the access door is not quite closed or there is no power to the unit. Is the outside unit fan turning? If not, you either have no call from the thermostat, the fan is broken or the unit has no power to it. I would turn off the breaker to the inside unit and switch the breaker near the outside unit to off and let them sit idle for 5 minutes. Switch both breakers back on and chect to see if the outside unit turns on. Then check the indoor unit and see if this starts blowing. Let us know what you find.
