You possibly have a motor that the windings are bad. These windings swell when power flows through them and in turn the swelling presses onto the shaft causing the problem. Also, I would replace the capacitor first in the event it is bad If the motor runs properly then that capacitor is the only problem. If it doesn't cure the fan problem then the motor is going out. If you change the motor the capacitor will also need to be changed anyway so try changing capacitor first. Good Luck hope I helped you some

Coleman mach rv ac unit tripping breaker


If it trips the circuit breaker as soon as you turn the FAN on, suspect either a bad fan motor or a failed fan motor start capacitor. If you are able to turn the fan on but the circuit breaker trips as soon as the COMPRESSOR starts, it is possible that the compressor is seized.
If, on the other hand, the unit is tripping a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) breaker or GFCI utility outlet, it is possible that neutral and hot are reversed at the outlet into which the trailer is plugged (happened to me this year at an RV park).

Replaced a circuit breaker on our heat pump our air goes off right but the blower stays on what could be wrong


The blower relay (called a fan relay) is stuck and must be replaced.
Want to do it your self? Trace the two power leads from the blower motor. usually white and black for high speed, White and red medium.
(Blue,purple and brown are capacitor colors)the white wire goes to the line side of the contactor. the black or red wire goes to the fan relay. This arrangement allows the blower to continue running for a minute after shut down to dry the cooling coils or complete the heating cycle. (Line side is where the incoming power wires connect)

I got my craftmade ceiling fan about 10 years ago, the fan has now stopped working but the light works, I changed out the switch on the wall that was not the problem sometimes I will turn on the wall...


pretty sure its the 3 speed pull chain switch.$4.50 to $6.00 at home depot or lowes or hardware/elecrtical store.
how 2 replace switch.
1.turn off breaker to fan/fan lights,probably that whole room.
may need extension cord & floor lamp from closest room with electric, so u can see.
2.need 6ft step ladder to get up to fan.look see how to get to fan speed switch. speed switch unscrews from outside but body of switch is inside fan cover.
3. need to take fan off ceiling to replace switch.
4.switch has 4 wires, power feed into switch and 3 selector
wires that go to high speed winding,medium speed winding and low speed winding.
speed selector switch has 4 settings, off, low,medium,high.

about ac circuits , black wire is 120 volts, hot.
white wires are neutral return wire. an ac voltmeter will read 120volts ac with its red and black probes between black,hot and
white,neutral.
white= neutal=ground which is green. If wired properly and polarity was observed, white and green ground wires both connect to the neutral ground buss bar in the circuit breaker panel box and are the same electrical point.

black wires,and the selector handle getting the hot juice into the fan and white returns the used juice to the circuit breaker panel box.
If polarity was observed, you can touch white and ground without getting a shock.
black will jolt or even fry you dead, so make sure the breaker to the fan is off, so that the circuit is de-energized before you touch it.

PLEASE NOTE--- make drawing on paper of what color wires from the fan motor go to what color wires on the selector switch.
If the switch has 4 black wires, you need to put different color electrical tape as a marker, on each wire. or ,to be cheap, you can use white paper,scissors to cut paper,and pencil and write 1,2,3,4 on the paper and tape to the 4 switch wires.

that is: wire # 1 from the switch goes to the black wire from the wall--ac hot
wire #2 from switch goes to yellow fan motor winding,
wire # 3 from switch goes to orange wire from fan motor

wires are specific and NOT interchangeable.

I have a speed queen sc35md2yu40001washer that keeps blowing the 2amp fuse as soon as I switch on the breaker it is the fuse where the incoming power goes through before it goes to the transformer


Good job tracing the location of the fuses. Now, logically, the transformer is the next thing to check. When power is turned off at the house breaker, remove one of the wires on the output side of the transformer and see what happens when you turn the power back on. If the fuse blows, the transformer is shot and needs to be replaced. If not, go to the next device on the circuit, etc...

My Sole f83 will not start. initially Fans run, can raise/lower. will act noemal until motor should run/doesn't. then raise/lower function stops. If I try to use speed buttons LS light shows. moto


LUBE or wax the deck belt, this happen because you do not have schedule maintenance according with the owner manual. The machine shut down for autoprotection in electronic system Do it NOW.
2) LUBe the rollers bearint too with WD-40 only for rollers
3) Test the drive belt motor, for worn or cracking belt, replace or adjust it
4) Test the input voltage motor, if there are the motor need repair, see my personal TIPS for troubelshooting help.
5) Test the output voltage board, for input voltage motor, if there are NOT the board is faulty.
God bless you

Only fans work on split system model ls-k2463hl earth breaker trips when compresor tries to start I own a Panasonic Heat pump model A18CKP6G with the same problem. The compressor was replaced last June...


Sounds like a wiring problem between the outdoor unit and the house. You would be surprised what I have come across in 30+ years of A/C work.
But it could also be the compressor.

I will need to know answers to the following -

Does the compressor have a soft start (2 wire capacitor looking device that attaches to the run capacitor), hard start (relay and capacitor), or just the run capacitor?

Were the run capacitors and start components replaced when the compressor was replaced?

Is the breaker a GFI breaker, or just a standard breaker?

Rain or humidity is not usually a factor, but it may be something.

Reply back what you find.

Does the compressor try to start and the shuts off or is the breaker slamming off as soon as it is turned on. If it takes a few seconds the comp could be locked up and trying to start, high amps and tripping breaker. Tripping breaker right now would indicate a shorted or grounded compressor. Really would need to be ohmed out with a meter to check for ground. Not good either way.
