Condenser fan rotating the wrong way

How do I change the direction of the condenser fan? The air coming out the top is cool instead of hot leading me to believe the direction the blade is turning is incorrect. The temp inside doesn't drop.

If nothing has been changed you have a bad capacitor and need to change it. Then the fan will run in the right direction. RUSS

Hi, i replace the thermostat and water pump flashed the radiator has coolant but still overheating, what else could it be its golf 4 tdi diesel 2002. Thank you


Radiator may have rust/salt deposits inside, if that is case its cheaper and better to change the radiator. Also for future don't use normal tap water in radiator, use a coolant + ph balanced water meant for radiators to reduce salt buildup inside radiator.

Also check the radiator fan is working ok and rotating in the right direction, sucking cool air inside not blowing out hot engine air to the radiator. Some electric fans can have wires mixed up so they start in the wrong direction. (make sure fan is sucking cool air outside towards the engine).

In some cars, radiator fan has a top cover that stops hot engine air getting sucked by the fan, if your car has it, make sure it is fitted properly and is in good order.

Some cars have a fan fitted on the AC condenser, make sure this fan is working as well.

I have an AMCOR ALTL1200E, fan works, cold air comes out when the compressor turns on BUT after 5 minutes compresor turns OFF, then after 5 minutes again it turns on, what is wrong, thanks


Sounds like the unit is cycling off on a high head pressure (condenser coil too hot). When the condenser cools, the automatic switch resets. The unit cuts off again when the condenser heats up again. Clean the condenser coil, and clear out any debris (bird's nest, lint etc.)

Condenser fan replaced one year ago, fan not turning but can hear motor


the answer to your problem is most likely the motor start capacitor. A AC motor can run in both directions. The start capacitor is used to cause the current to lag behined the voltage which determines the direction the motor will turn. Its posible the start and run capacitors are in one can. so changing one will change the other. However look for a wiring diagram. Do not asume that both capacitors are wired in properly. They may be fighting one another causeing premature failure.

MY GE ROOM AIR CONDITIONER AGH08AJG1 SWITCH BETWEEN COOL AND FAN EVERY 5 MINUTES APROXIMATELY NEVER SATYS COOLING UNTIL THE DESIRED TEMPERATURE IS REACHED


Check and clean the filter if found to be dirty. It is usually behind a decorative panel below the cold air output grates (when the cold air is on the top front).

The filter is behind the large, rectangular, slotted front panel. The evaporator coil is behind the filter. The fan behind the evaporator pulls the room air through the filter and evaporator coil where it is cooled and dehumidified. It is then discharged through the grates on the top of the front.

Direct the airflow from the unit up and away or left / right to prevent the cool air from being drawn in the front of the unit (this is where the thermostat sensor is located). Use the highest fan speed to help force the air away from the intake, too. Inspect the condenser and evaporator coils (condenser is outside and evaporator is directly behind the filter. Clean if dirty or icing over. Be sure to install a filter if none was present. There are products made specifically for cleaning between the fins of the condenser and evaporator coils. Use them only as directed.

If these suggestions do not work, you may have a problem with the thermostat, refrigerant level, condenser or condenser fan.

Good luck!

Whirlpool gold gs65haxmL00 just got noisy


I think if you could pull the refrigerator away from wall and remove the paper cover that covers the compressor and condenser area located down near floor with out reaching inside examine fan and compressor sounds from behind. Grab a light and look to see where the sound is coming from. Condenser fans tend to become loose on the shaft and Technicians call this shaft play. Shaft play can lead to the fan touching the outer housing or shroud that directs the air over condenser to keep it cool and the inside of refrigerator cold. Shaft play can also lead to fan failure and the the compressor will become too hot to run normally. It would not cost anything to look because sounds seem to bounce when you are not near where they are made. I will be back in a few minutes with a user manual and parts manual for your model, Thanks Sea Breeze

My air conditioner isn't cooling, instead it is blowing out hot air. I changed the filter and it still doesn't seem to work. Any help is appreciated.


Check your condenser. if you cannot feel hot air out of it then the refrigerant is low. Check your fans. Clean your coils. Check your Capacitor

Condenser fan running backwards on heat pump


I am having the same problem, sometimes it runs in the wrong direction, blowing the air down. Sometimes something gets tripped and I need to turn the thermostat to off and wait a bit then restart it. If I am lucky it will run int the correct direction and also will warm the house. Sometimes it send nothing but cold air to the house's forced air.

I need to replace my condenser fan motor. I replaced it once before but instead of blowing out the top, it was blowing on the condenser. Should it blow out of the top? If so, what direction should the...


Yes. It should blow out the top. The rotation of the fan does determine the direction of air. Either have the motor replaced and indicate the direction of rotation.
