Question about Whirlpool Electronic Window Air Conditioner ACQ158XR
When I turn on my Whirlpool ACQ088MRO window air conditioning unit, the fan does not start and I hear a low-pitched "groaning" noise. Is it probable that the fan motor is bad, or is there possibly a startup cap that might not be sending enough juice to kick it over? Any and all help appreciated. . . .
99% BAD MOTOR BUT LAST EFFORT YOUR MOTOR HAS TWO SETS OF INTERNAL WINDINGS A START AND RUN IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR SART WINDING MAY BE THE BAD ONE. TURN POWER OFF THEN SPIN FAN IN BOLTH DIRECTIONS A COUPLE TIMES WITH YOUR HAND TURN POWER BACK ON AND THEN IF IT DOSENT SART SPINNING BY ITSELF TRY TO SPIN IT WITH YOUR FINGERS AND SEE IF IT TAKES OFF. IF IT TAKES OFF AFTER YOU SPIN IT YOU CAN PUT A HARD START KIT ON IT AND IT WILL BE OK.

I would say the motor is bad but to be sure test the voltage to the motor with a multimeter, you can also phisically spin the motor and if that makes it work a little not as fast and blow enough air then you know its the motor this works if you dont have a multimeter.
