Why does the aircon cant stay on


Most modern air conditioners are designed to offer up to 10 to 20 years of reliable use. However, even the most reliable of air conditioners may stop cooling or suffer from problems from time to time. Remember that one of the best ways to prevent unexpected A/C problems is to have regular maintenance performed on your unit. If you cannot perform the maintenance yourself, hire a professional to do so. Spending money on maintenance now can save you from big repair bills in the future.
Some of the most common AC problems are listed below, and they may even be the reason why your air conditioning unit won't kick on. Review this information so that you know how to best troubleshoot problems with your unit. Be sure to determine whether your unit has shut down entirely or whether only a part of your unit has shut down or isn't working. Remember that it is always necessary to cut power off to your unit before inspecting it for wiring-related problems.
  • The AC unit does not cool rooms evenly: Inspect your unit's distribution channels. Make sure that the fan on your unit is kicking air into rooms or into your duct system.
  • The AC unit turns on but doesn't cool: If your unit turns on but doesn't cool, check your thermostat to be sure that it is set at the correct temperature. You should then check the condenser and evaporator for dirt and clogging. If too much dirt builds up, your unit may not turn on at all.
  • The condenser unit returns on and off repeatedly: Having a unit turn on and off repeatedly is extremely frustrating. In general, this problem is caused either by a dirty condenser and fan or a clogged condenser.
  • The condenser unit won't turn on: If your condenser unit won't turn on at all, you may have a faulty motor or the unit may not be receiving power. Examine all wiring and ensure that the unit is plugged in.

On a cpkj 48-1B Goodman heat pump I am having condenser fan issues. runs full spedd for a while then cuts down to barely running, Even after changing the motor and capacitor.


Does the condenser utilise head pressure control to maintain head pressure? if so is the unit fully charged...r22. r410 Freon.If the unit is an older model. the fan motor only runs at 850 r.p.m design flaw. The newer units now run the fan at 1075. R.p.m. I have installed many Goodman split systems and was having problems similar to yours. Hope this. Helps you

Condenser fan motor


It would be easier to get the data from the condenser fan motor than attempt to match AC unit model numbers. If unreadable then remove the fan motor and take to someone to match with the one you have. That is what I do, Thanks Sea Breeze
Make sure you mark your wiring before removal.

Sub zero 736 condenser fan not running


You will need to remove the cover around the condenser fan motor then remove the screws holding it down to the base. Remove the wiring from the junction box and away you go. Do not run the unit without a working condenser fan motor, you run the chance of causing yourself many other problems. With a new fan motor the unit should run fine unless there is waxing in the cap tube from overheating. Good luck

Whynter Portable Air Conditioner Model: ARC-14S. Problem: It sounded as if something fell inside the unit while it was operating (cooling) then it started to vibrate horribly. The vibration is only...


Hi,Whynter Portable Air Conditioner has many moving parts, and they all make noise and cause vibrations. Some of these parts are more likely to causing shaking and loud noises, and sometimes this signals a larger problem, something to watch and scrutinize. If serious enough, it calls for a repair.

Loose Parts

Loose parts cause the majority of shaking and vibration noises in your air conditioner. A few of the most common loose parts include the air compressor, the piston rods and even the fan or blower unit itself. These noises are clunking, clanking sounds that occur along with a vibrating action. The only method of repair is a complete compressor replacement, which is a repair only a certified air conditioner technician is qualified to make. The compressor is a fully sealed component, so individual parts in the compressor cannot be repaired.

Fan Blades

Fan blades cause noise, shaking and vibrations even when properly secured. If fan blades contact the exterior structure of the air conditioner due to a bent fan blade or broken and misaligned grate, a constant, repetitive noise and vibration results, which sounds like a ticking or banging from the interior of the air conditioner. Vibration in this case is limited but still present.

Mounting Brackets

When an air conditioner shakes, there is a problem with the mounting brackets. These brackets hold the air conditioner compressor steady as it operates. Normal vibrations and shaking would otherwise occur without these brackets. A loose mounting bracket causes the air conditioner to rock back and forth and creates a clanking sound. As the compressor starts up, this rocking and clanking sound begins, resulting in a very loud and fast vibration and noise. It also occurs when the unit shuts down.

Other Sounds and Vibrations

Sometimes air conditioners squeal, hiss, hum or screech. Each noise is often accompanied by a vibration. Humming sounds along with a vibration may indicate a bad capacitor, the electrical part responsible for starting the machine. Hissing sounds tend to indicate a pressure problem while screeching and squealing sounds are fairly common in window air conditioners and in central air conditioners. This sound is also a result of the compressor motor. It usually starts when the unit turns on and continues through its normal operating cycle. Vibrations always occur in the air conditioner due to moving parts and the compressor motor's operation.


Hope it helped..

We have a 26-ft Admiral side-by-side approximately 15 years old. It still works fine, except the door gaskets are getting hotter and hotter. This trips the breaker in the electric box. Is there a way to...


Hi Sandy and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Usually refrigerators use the condenser plumbing to create heat around the door gaskets. If your getting heat on the door gaskets that means that the condenser fan in the back is either not running or.... the condenser coils are clogged with lint. The fan should be running anytime the compressor is running. Since you said it is starting to trip the breaker.. I am assuming there may be a problem with the condenser fan being stuck or the windings have failed. Without a model number I can not pass you replacement fan parts information. I will say that the average person can change the condenser fan if they just take their time and pay attention to how it is mounted.

Remove the rear lower fiberboard cover:
Check the condenser fan... clean the condenser coils in the bottom rear of the unit. You can..... use and external fan directed into the back of the refrigerator while your awaiting parts to keep the unit going. All your doing is getting rid of the heat that the condenser fan would have done if it was working properly.

If directing a fan at the back of unit does not cause ther temperature around the door gaskets to drop your original assumption of having heating elements between the doors may be correct. Usually units that have actual heaters have an enrgery saver switch in the fresh food compartment that will turn off the heaters.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

We require condenser fan motors for Interclisa Carrier package (rooftop) air conditioner model AAD 250 (1980's model) model. Air conditioner - supply voltage 380 Volts 50 Hz AC. Condenser fan motor voltage...


Hi, this is an odd voltage 380 volts. Is it a 3 phase unit? To get a 220 volt 50hz condenser fan motor, you will have to go through a refrigeration/air conditioning parts house and order this. 60hz you would have no problem finding one in stock. Carrier is a good unit, and have been around for many years. You shouldn't have any problems locating one.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
PS You will need to go through a wholesale parts house.

Fan underneath frig is running but no cold air is coming into the frig or freezer


The fan that is under the frig is the condensor fan(the fan the cools the condenser coils and the compressor. It does not have a direct effect on the chilled air circulation inside of the frig. The evaporator fan is the unit that circulates the chilled air thru your freezer and frig. I am not sure what make model unit you have, but I have found that this fan motor is 90% of the circulation problems i have seen.

Noise vibration


if you take the back panel of the freezer out you can get to the condenser fan they do have a habit of going bad and actually having the fan and shaft move forward on them usually when you start hearing the noise it is not long before it goes out completely.
