Could have a fan capacitor going out or the fan motor is going out . Usually the capacitor is the culprit. Have a a/c tech look at it the capacitor is inexpensive however it is hard to replace if you haven't done one before. Good Luck

Water inside unit, you can hear it when running. I know it's suppose to be normal in high humidity, but the unit was making a loud noise the other night so I had to turn it off. sounded like the fan


The unit is not draining properly. Make sure it is leaning back in the window. If you put a level on the top of the unit, it should be leaning back away from the window about a half bubble. If it still doesn't drain after this, the drain may be stopped up. The drain will either be in the bottom of the unit or on the back. If you try to clean the drain hole be careful not to use anything that will poke a hope in the rear coil. You can use compressed air.

When the unit is turned on. I can hear the AC pump kick on and run. But the blower fan motor will not turn on at any fan speed. No setting on the AC will get the blower fan to turn on?


Sounds like then fan has died or the run capacitor has die. All motors that run on single phase mains need a capacitor to start them spinning. These are quite cheap & simple to replace usually - worth just replacing if you feel you can't test it. Looks a bit like a 'D' cell battery with 2 leads hanging out. Could also be that the unit is not cooling/heating and the temp sensor will not activate fan until heating/cooling coolant has passed room temp. - Rick

The central air turns on, but does not cool. The fan outside of the house is not moving. Is there a switch I need to use to turn the outside fan on?


There should be an electrical box next to your exterior unit. Open it up and there should be a pull handle on an electrical bridge. Usually when it is turned one way it will make an electrical connection and if it is rotated 180 degrees and plugged in it won't make an electrical connection.

My Tohsiba Sattilite keeps turning off too AND I play something like Settlers6 then it just turns off i think Toshiba has a problem with their computers and my computer is quite fast and sometimes i hear...


This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

Ac doesent blow air


If the fan is not working,then the fan motor is bad,or the start capacitor is bad.Pull the unit out so you can work on it,near the plug in.Be carefull,and use a stick,backscratcher,or something like that.Turn the ac on to cool,high blower,and turn the fan bladeclockwise to see if it will try to start turning on it`s own.Careful not to gouge the coils,and try to turn the fan reall good.If it starts,let it run,for about 15 minutes.If the fan,does not quit,then replace the start capacitor.If the fan wont start turning on it`s own,or the fan stops after a while,replace the fan motor.I hope this was some help.

Outside a/c fan quits but compresser still runs


it sounds like the fan is over amping itself and shutting down on thermal overload check the amp draw during running time and compare it to the sticker on the outside panel it should be running .9 amps, and it will over heat if it runs around 1.2 amps or above

A/C quit running


This question is really to broad to answer. There are several things that could cause it to stop running. I think I would turn everything off, let it cool down for several hours and try it again. When you kick it back on, take note of what is running and what's not running. Inside fan, outside fan, compressor. If the outside unit will not run at all it could be as simple as a grasshopper caught in the contacts. If you hear the compressor running outside but no outside fan, The fan motor probably needs replaced. Please make sure that all power to the unit is TURNED OFF before removing cover plates on outside unit and before trying to remove insects from contact points. Check all wiring inside outside unit while it is open. Also check capacitors for swelling or leaking. If you don't know how to turn all the power off or open the outside unit, you need to call a professional AC technician. Hope this helps. kstfas
