From your description, seems like compressor is seizing when hot, tapping it shakes the piston loose then it seizes up again after a while.

Fan doesn't come on ..compressor seems to start.


If unit hasn't been running for a while, shut power off to it, and go up on roof and take a long stick or similar, and try to feed it through air slots in cover at back and try to spin the fan enough to rotate it 3 or 4 times. Then have someone turn power back on (with stick out of there obviously) and try turning on fan mode only to see if fan will now come on. If it does, run it for a few minutes then try cool again.
Sometimes they get a dead spot from not being used for a while, and this will get it going again. If you have trouble rotating it, remove cover and spin by hand well, but make sure power is off, then try it again. If unit was running recently, have capacitor checked first, then fan. Capacitors can give off a very dangerous shock due to high voltage stored in them, so don't try it yourself if not familiar with capacitors.

When we turn the AC on, after a couple of minutes we hear a hum which lasts about a 1.5 minutes then shuts off. No fan air movement or cooling detected. The unit is 5 years old. We RARELY use it and when...


Go up on roof and using a stick or similar, poke it through the air holes in side & try to turn the fan blade at rear of the air conditioner. Make sure it's off at the time. Try to get 2 or 3 complete revolutions of the fan blades, then try turning it on fan only first,and let it run on fan for a few minutes, then switch to cool. If worse comes to worse and you can't get blades to turn, remove cover on roof (watch for wasps & bees) and spin fan blades a few times by hand, step back & have someone try fan only. If that works, then try cool. Sometimes they get a dead spot from sitting, and that will get it going again, 90% of the time. Let me know how it goes.

The a/c unit cooling fan shuts down shortly after unit kicks on.


If a fan motor quits working during a cycle it usually means that the thermal protector is turning it off. If you had an amp meter on it, you would notice that it is exceeding the listing on the nameplate, Nine times out of ten this is irreversable, the motor needs to be changed. Sometimes if there are oil ports on the motor, you can add a few drops of zoom spout oil and that does the trick. But usually the motor is already damaged. Good luck.

Sanyo Condensing unit. blower fan doesnt come on unless unit runs,but unit only runs for about one minute and shuts off. led #6on cond. unit blinks and led on evap. coil #26 also blinks unit needs to be...


First, the condensor fan is only supposed to run when the unit is on. As for the one minute run, then needing reset...this sounds like a "safety out". The air conditioner knows something is wrong and tries to protect itself. Being low on Freon would take about one minute to register. Do you have pressure gauges? The low pressure side should be about 65 to 85 psi with Freon 22.

Outside Fan Problems


TRY CHANGING THE CAP FIRST BUT MOST UNITS ONLY USE THE CAP TO START THE MOTOR NOT TO KEEP IT RUNNING SO IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A BAD CAP AND THATS WHY IT DOESNT START HOWEVER IF IT STOPS RUNNING WITHOUT THE THERMOSTAT TELLING IT TO (OR IN THE MIDDLE OF A CYCLE) THEN YOUR RUN WINDING IN YOUR MOTOR IS GOING BAD YOU CAN REPLACE THIS MOTOR PRETTY EASY AND IF YOU USE AN AFTER MARKET INSTEAD OF AN OEM MOTOR YOU CAN SAVE YOURSELF ALOT OF MONEY. PS BE CAREFULL WHEN CHANGING YOUR CAP BECAUSE EVEN WITH THE POWER OFF IT CAN SHOCK YOU.AFTER SHUTTING THE POWER OFF USE AN INSULATED SCREWDRIVER AND TOUCH IT ACROSS THE POLES AT THE TOP OF THE CAP TO GROUND IT AND REMOVE POTENTIAL ENERGY.

It sounds like the blower motor has burnt up.(the one inside) The unit running for a few minutes then shutting off, is due to the high pressure/temperature safeties. When you removed the panels, did you notice any fan running?
