It does not make sense they overlooked it. It does make sense the fan motor is bad.
A fan motor must have a new capacitor. I would ask for a labor adjustment on the original repair.

Rheem classic 80 fan motor on furnace hums will not turn on


Have you checked the capacitor? Try spinning the blower wheel by hand, if this gets the motor going you have a bad capacitor. If not, the motor will need to be replaced.

Fan stopped working on our Bosch rangehood (Type D-FX41-8 or E-Nr. DKE935AAU). Lights working but the fan only inhibits a humming sound.


hi ;
the fan motor needs repair , the cause of humming is the vibration of induction on AC current in the motor.
if the motor stopped means it has faulty shafting and bushing, or maybe the starting capacitor needs a replacement, don't turn it on or use it to prevent burning of induction wire,
also it needs a qualified technician to repair ,

It can be the start capacitor,or the fan itself can be bad,replace the start capacitor,then if this does not help,replace the fan motor,sense you can start the fan by hand,and it runs for hours,it must be the start capacitor.

My coleman mah 3 roof top will not blowon fan side


Sounds like you have either a bad fan motor or a bad fan motor capacitor. When you turn the unit on with the fan not working, the compressor (the humming noise) runs and gets real hot real quick resulting in the compressor cutting off ( the nothing after) on it's inside high temp switch. This is what the compressor is designed to do so that when this happens, it does not burn the compressor out. Replace you fan capacitor, give the compressor an hour to cool, then try it. In most cases and if I'm correct, the unit will run just like you want it to. Good luck.

Ac unit fan does not turn unless i force it to turn. also not producing cold air


If the fan just hums and if you spin the fan and it runs, check out the capacitor, it is bad. Most condensing units have a split capacitor, for the hermedic unit and the fan. If the compressor runs the dual capacitor is bad on the fan side. Your choice buy the dual capacitor, or just buy a single capacitor for the fan part of it. Make sure the voltage rating and microfarad ratings are the same. They will be marked on the old capacitor, as will fan (for fan), and herm for compressor). THATS 220 VOLTAGE YOUR WORKING WITH, BE SURE THE POWER IS OFF!!
