You need to be clear on the problem. Not blowing is different from not cooling. The condensing unit (outside) creates the cooling. The indoor fan blows and circulate the cool air.

Well there not enough data here to make a fairly good solution. but if all the fans are running! and no cool air then it is the compressor.

SOURCE: my ac works inside, fan comes on and blows fine

Hi, normally when your freon is low, system won't work, look for filter dryer, follow high pressure tube from compressor to condenser, filter dryer normally have sight glass where you can see freon moving in system, if there's bubbles, you need freon, freon should be charge until glass get clears, hey remember to always charge from low or liquid side of system.

My goodman unit (1994) makes the loud noise, like a buzzing noise. The unit works, the blower blows air into the house, the air is cold, but the outside fan that blows across the condenser piping isn'


you need to replace your condensing fan motor. the noise you are hearing is the compressor working against a lot of pressure because the heat is building up in you condensing unit. Prolonged operation without an operating condensing fan motor will cause your compressor to burn up, and then you will have the cost of a compressor changeout to the cost of a condensing fan motor.

Make sure your fan clutch is working. No fan, no cooling of the condenser, no heat dissipation, no cold air. Start the truck and make sure you feel air movement, a lot.

My 5000 BTU GE window AC is making sporatic loud popping or cracking sounds when the compressor is on and running. It has stopped blowing air! When I put my hand in front of the air vent I can feel cold...


Fan inside blower unit stuck or seized. The compressor noises are because liquid refrigerant is coming back because it's not picking up heat from the room. Check/ clean the filters and spin the motor of the fan WHILE SWITCHED OFF. If it spins, it's probably the fan capacitor. If it doesn't, get a new fan

Car blows warm air when idling


It sounds like your AC unit could be overheating or even damaged.

AC units have a sensor that will turn them off automatically to prevent damage from overheating. If there is an insufficient amount of air flow, the unit will heat up, and then eventually turn off.

When the car is moving, more air is forced over the unit, likely keeping it cool enough to run, however, when the car come to a stop, it loses that air flow, and quickly heats up. Thus, the AC would work while the vehicle is in motion, and overheat and stop when the car is stopped and idling.

However, the AC unit could be completely blown. The cold air while moving could be just a case of air being forced into the car. Think of a house fan, the fast the wind blows on you, the cooler it gets.... Thus, it could be an illusion that the AC is working when car is in motion, when it really isn't.

Hope this helps.

Its possible that the contactor that closes to start the outdoor unit is not pulling in and passing power. You are hearing the coil humming since it is getting control power. Also first check that breaker for outdoor unit is not tripped
