Question about Fedders Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I don't know if the motor is shot or what, but when you turn it on, it hums as though it's going to come on, but nothing blows out and nothing ever kicks on. Trying to decide if it's worth it to try to find someone to fix it (it's a casement window air conditioner, so it's not like we can replace it for $100), or whether we should just look into buying another.

The fan motor might be bad or the fan blades are obstructed. the compressor won't turn on if the fan isn't blowing. see if you can move the fan easily manually.

When , i turn on my heater on inside the car it blow out cold air. When I increased the temperture it still blow out cold air

First check that the blender door motor is operating.This should be a little box directly in front center of the console. When you adjust the temp control, the arm should move on the box motor.
Probably though your heater core is plugged.Do a search for don-ohio and heater core and maybe the long tryped message will come up, if you CAN do a search on this site.I'm pretty new here, and don't know the `ropes'. ha! don-ohio

FRS6LF7JMO Ice maker making ice. But will not dispense ice . have cleaned out ice container. Nothing jamed in auger. All back in push in lever to dispence ice not even a noise nothing.

It sounds like the motor that turns the auger is either disconnected or fried, it might also be binded elsewhere, but you should at least hear some humming if the motor is getting current. If you can figure out where the motor is connected you can test the windings for a short with a multimeter (set to resistance and a reading of zero means good, infinity means its shot).

Let me know if you need any more help

Dishwasher began leaking underneath when turned on. Humming as if trying to start, but nothing further exept water on floor

I don't know how old this dishwasher is but the symptom your describing sounds like the ceramic water seal on the bottom of the impeller assy but above the motor has failed. When the seal fails it allows water to run though the motor and then the bearings in the motor fail. Once water starts running though a dishwasher motor they are pretty much shot. The reason for this is that the leak starts out slow and it leaks for a long period before you ever see the water under the dishwasher. So by the time you see the leak water has been going through the pump / motor assy for weeks or months. By that time the service technicians only option is to replace the motor pump assy.

On a rf 60 fan will not come on

If the flames come on, but the blower doesn't i would think it to be a bad fan motor. The easiest way to check without tools is to let the flames go for about 5minutes, then listen to hear a humming coming from the motor. If possable feel the motor, if it's hot, it's toast! be careful, as it might be hot enough to burn skin, so tap it first! If it's hot or humming, and not blowing, it's shot!!

Whirlpool LER 6620 heats, but does not tumble.

if the dryer heats the motor should be good. if it hums its either runing or the hum is a stall noise . if belt is in tact then if motor were going so would the drum . so i think the motor isn't going just humming and the heat sw in the motor is stuck closed with lint and you need to replace the motor .. take the belt off and turn motor if it turns free . the blow it out good and reinstall belt and try again

Pump just hums but wont start

Sounds like its frozen and causing a very heavy load on your circuit. If the motor gets hot within seconds, its shot and needs replacing. Have you attempted to turn the motor over by hand ?

The washer hums and blows the breaker

It sounds like a motor problem to me. The transmission in not elecrtical but it could be locked up. Try turning the tub by hand and see if it turns. if not take the motor out (unplug first) and try to turn the transmission. But with the "hot smell" more and likely the motor is shot. This is all depending on your type and modle of machine you have. Let me know.

Sony Cyber-shot Error Code E:61:00


you may have these symptoms,
Symptoms :
  1. After pressing the power button in capture mode, the lens would extend and a slight humming from what appeared to be the auto focus motor could be heard for about 5 seconds. When the motor stopped humming, the camera would beep and display E:61:00 in the LCD Screen.
  2. Camera would extend the lens but not be able to focus on anything past 8 inches or so.
  3. Zoom in and zoom out would not work.
  4. Playback mode and the Setup mode was not affected.

To fix this problem,

Do these...

A) Put the camera about a half inch from a hard surface.
B) Let the lense go out and hit the surface and retract a little bit. Let it go out all the way when it tries the next time.

If that doesnt fix it, try this:
A) Turn it on and let the lense go out fully
B) See where the lens comes out of the camera? The little round crack that surrounds it? Wiggle the lense a bit and blow in there a bit. (Be sure not to blow on the lense!)

Now turn it off/on again, and it should be fixed!

If not, try these steps a few more times. If still nothing, then I suggest you to call Sony, but this DID work for 90%, so hopefully it''ll work for you :)

Thanx for using fixya,
