Do you check the terminals on the contactor, or may be the capacitor, check the capacitor for any sign of blow out

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.

The outside unit has power going to it but isn't


maybe it has tripped off on high pressure, as you have have said the fan is not turning so will cause high pressure. now assuming the problem is the fan is not running than check the condition of the condensator /capacitor for the fan motor. if the motors winding is still good replace the capacitor and try it ON.

I have a Ruud Zepher Serris Central A/C & Heat unit - forced hot air. I cleaner the dirt and debris out of the outside unit put back together and now the outside unit will not start. There is power...


if you have power to the outside unit and the fan is not turning - the most likely problem is that the fan motor is bad. I would make sure the power is all OFF and then try and turn the fan blade by hand. If it's stuck and will not turn or turns 'hard' - the bearings have gone out and the only fix is to replace the motor.
If the fan blade turns freely - then you might check the capacitor (small electrical device attached by wires to the fan motor) and see if all the connections are tight and complete and that the capacitor itself is not bulged.
If it's 'bulged' that is a good indication that it's bad and that could be your only problem.
Otherwise I would either change the motor myself (if the bearings are out) or get an AC Tech to troubleshoot the system.
Hope this has helped.

Lennox central air for home not kicking on. Fan on the outside not spinning but motor is making a humming noise. No cold air coming in home. We have circuit breakers they are turn to the on position. ...


Is the indoor fan working? The problem with the outdoor fan sounds like it could be your capacitor. Turn off the power to the outdoor unit and make sure the fan turns freely using a screwdriver or something that will reach the blades. If it turns freely then it is probably the capacitor. Let me know what you find.

Air conditioner does not kick on when I turn down the thermostat


What kind of a unit is it? Is it integrated with a furnace in the attic? Need to now this information. Also, turn the thermostat to Cool/Auto and go outside to see if the condenser unit is running, if so, then there is a problem with the indoor blower motor or thermostat. Jumper the green and red wires on the thermostat and see if the blower comes on. If so, you have a bad thermostat. If not, you could have a bad fan motor or capacitor.

Won't turn on


The unit in your back yard is the outside half. The one that blows room temp air is the inside half.

The outside half is not working. No compressor, no fan. That is a problem with the power. You will find the bad parts very close to where the power wires go into the outside half. It might be a bad relay that connects both the fan and compressor to the power. It might be a 3 terminal capacitor. It might be burnt wires.

A/C quit running


This question is really to broad to answer. There are several things that could cause it to stop running. I think I would turn everything off, let it cool down for several hours and try it again. When you kick it back on, take note of what is running and what's not running. Inside fan, outside fan, compressor. If the outside unit will not run at all it could be as simple as a grasshopper caught in the contacts. If you hear the compressor running outside but no outside fan, The fan motor probably needs replaced. Please make sure that all power to the unit is TURNED OFF before removing cover plates on outside unit and before trying to remove insects from contact points. Check all wiring inside outside unit while it is open. Also check capacitors for swelling or leaking. If you don't know how to turn all the power off or open the outside unit, you need to call a professional AC technician. Hope this helps. kstfas
