Outside unit will only run for a short amount of time with A/C before the fan stops turning and starts humming, squealing/screeching and the top of the outside unit gets hot.

The bearings are bad in the motor and after the fan runs enough it eventually gets hot, making the bearing screech and the fan locks up. Need to replace motor again. See if it has a warranty. The reason it gets hot is because the fan is what removes the heat from the coil and if the fan isn't running there is nothing to cool it off so to speak.

Greetings . . . I turned my Garmin 2720 on in my

Take the GPS out of your van to an area with a clear view of the sky. Power the unit on. If the unit is working correctly, then it will acquire the satellites. You can then put the unit back in your van. You may have to reposition the unit to keep the satellite lock.

If the unit does not acquire satellites outside, then the unit is defective.

My garmin 1300T turned itself off and will not restart

This is likely a failed battery.
The battery on these units is not user-replaceable (soldered to the PCB) and must be returned to Garmin for repair.

Your 1300T is listed as a $99 flat rate repair.

My Garmin NUVI 1300T which is about 2 months old and has the most recent software, with a full battery charge or plugged into a power source occasionally switches off completely during a trip and will not...

A Garmin Nuvi 1300 that won't start, freezes, or is acting erratically is symptomatic of having corrupt firmware.

To correct this, I recommend backing up your favorites, clearing all user data, and if it still is stuck, then updating your Nuvi firmware.

Follow these three steps to take to get your Garmin Nuvi 1300 running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

What do I do when my brand new Garmin Nuvi 1300t freezes up?

Do this: Reset the unit with the pin hole button on the bottom. If this does not work, try holding the power switch to the left for 8 seconds.

My garmin nuvi 1350 powers down while travelling i have to hold power button on to power back on

ALL GPS require charging via the AC charger or USB supplied, If you have not done this then the battery will lose power quickly when connected to 12v car outlet. This source is a maintenance charge, not the main charger. Therefore it will deplete and try to shut down, despite being connected. Holding the power button on to force it is a dangerous driving practice and will eventually damage the unit( not so bad as getting you and any passengers damaged by this practice)

Charge your unit fully before you use it, if that is daily then disconnect it and put it on the AC or USB to raise the charging level to full so it's ready to go for the next day.

If it fails to charge fully, then your actions have damaged the battery and it will need to be replaced.
