You can try this. Remove the cover, spin the fan by hand and see if the motor runs well after this, if so, the capacitor or motor condensor is bad or has defective wiring. Replacing it should take care of the problem. Some capacitors are split capacitors, have two values and serve both a fan motor and the compressor. In this case, the unit can be rewired for individual capacitors or the split one replaced.

SOURCE: Frigidaire air conditioner - no cool air coming out.

if you used it alot, i would check it for freon.
checkthe air filter, make sure it's not dirty.
check the front panel, make sure there's no "ice/frost" in the unit.

SOURCE: AIR CONDITIONER MAKES BUZZING OR HUMMING SOUND

Yes probable you may need a new fan motor but check the capacitor first.

SOURCE: My air conditioner is on but not blowing cold air and buzzes

The compressor is not starting. The buzzing noise you hear is the compressor trying to start and then the thermal overload trips. When it cools it will try to start again. Could be a bad capacitor or the compressor is bad. These two units need to be tested to see which one is bad. A capacitor is inexpensive. If it's the compressor it will be cheaper to buy a new AC.

SOURCE: My Ruud Air Conditioner Model UAMB-048JAZ is not blowing cool air

3 things it could be:

#1 problem with AC units - dirty coils, this leads to many other problems and is caused by neglecting to change filters monthly. You can buy coil cleaner commercially, but it is not the coils you see that get dirty. There is another set inside that is usually not visible. If you look outside and your unit is "iced up" there is a 98% chance that is your problem. Sometimes it could be iced and you can't see it from the outside. Solution, turn AC off and blow fan to thaw. When thawed, clean coils with coil cleaner and coil comb.

Relay switches, you already pushed it so you may have a bad switch.

These are the two most common problems. A mechanic will be quickl to say it is your compressor for $. There are normally only half a dozen things that go wrong if your AC is 10yrs or less. If it is over that, it could possibly have a more serious problem. (Secret hint - I have known AC's to last 30+ years if the filters are changed regularly. Letting dust and dirt build up on coils invites a host of other problems due to the stress it puts on the other components.

SOURCE: air conditioner doesn't blow cold air. Continues

If the a/c fails to continue to blow cold there could be a few problems you can look for. First once you activate the system check to see if the compressor kicks in. You will hear the compressor humming . Once the a/c quits cooling go and see if the compressor is still running. If its not running its probibly gone into thermal overload (compressor overheated). If that is the case then you need to check to see if the coils are icing up if they are icing up then the problem is with 1) air flow restriction filter dirty, coils dirty simple repairs there replace filter, clean evaporator coil with a coil cleaner that can be purchased at a home repair store cleaning the condensor coil the same. 2) system is low on freon in which case the system will need to be recharged. Also, If you have a digital thermostat replace the batteries that may also be of some help. Good Luck on repairs

Just replaced the capacitor, and reconnected. Turned power on and heard a buzzing sound from the condensor, then the fan turned on. the unit only runs for a few minutes then shuts off


The buzz is the compressor failing to start.The blue or purple wire from the compressor goes to herm on the capacitor. If it's wired right and does not stare the compressor is bad.

The compressor light is on because the unit is cooling. It it not blowing cool "ac" air. How long is this process going to take? Do I keep the ac on or do I shut it off? It is also making a...


It sounds like the compressor isnt starting just because the lights on doesnt mean it is actually on.
If it is the compressor thats making the buzz heres what to look for when you start to hear the buzz does the fan slow down and then speed up after the buzzing stops? If it does your compressor is locked up you can try to replace the capacitor on the unit. If that dont work I wouldnt spend the money to replace the compressor too much money.

AC WORKS FINE HEAT COMES ON BUT WHEN TEMP IS REACHED FAN NEVER GOES OFF AND TROUBLE WITH HEAT COMING BACK ON


When temp reached to thermostat level heatewr only will cut off not the blower. And secondly all thermostat at heat stage will cut off at the end of +2 degree and cut in starting of -2 degree.

E.g; If you keep 30 degree heat it will cut off at 32 and cut in 28 degree.

Our window AC/heat unit fan only buzzes when turned on- no matter whether you turn on fan only or heat or cool mode.


so the fan does not spin and blow air? it could be a stick broken fan try free spinning it make sure its turned of. if fan spins freely its probably your start capacitor which is not to expensive.

I have a crosley window ac should it stop for intervals or work all the way


It will run all day if it does not get to the set point temperature and some units have a switch for the fan to cycle with the compressor or run continously.

mcdevito75, Needs service either a chrge of freon or the need for a new thermostat and That is what it sounds like to me, (the compressor could be bad also, the buzzing sound) hope not expensive repair.

Ac fan not turning on I can ''stick start it'' but which direction?


The condensor fan should be sucking air from the top and blowing it through the coils, probably a counter clockwise direction. The buzzing/humming sound is confusing to me. A humming sound sounds like a motor that can not turn over to start. A starting capacity would be needed. Just because you changed it out last year does not mean it is good. A buzzing sound sounds like a contactor problem. Contactors buzz and after a while, they will fail. In any case, you can "stick start" the condensor fan PROVIDED you are sure the ac compressor is working (this is for a short and temporary use). Also, you may have a high load duty capacitor that assists in the unit running. This will affect your condensor fan operation if it is not good. Unless you know all the components and operations of ac electrical, I would highly recommend calling out a professional.
