If your fan is working this is a good thing. So we know we have good power to the unit.
Your going to need to remove the cover from the unit, remove several screws to get access.
Make sure power is off and where the compressor is, on top remove the cover where the power connects inside and make sure there is no wires burnt, if all is well, move onto the capacitor.
Its usually the cause of compressor failure. Write down where the wires are located on the capacitor (read the top of capasitor) and take the capacitor to a local appliance supplier and have them test it and if bad then purchase a new one and replace in your unit.
Also make sure to verify no wires are burnt in the unit or melted together, and it never hurts to clean it while you have it out.


Good Luck!

I have a airwell GC-30RCC when put on heat the fan on the indoor unit wont kick in it works fine on cooling and plain fan mode but not on heat mode the red fan light is on too


How do you get it to kick in ?.Fid you spin it by hand ,if that's what you did and fan runs then you have a bad capicator. If fan runs fine in cooling and not in heat then you have a bad board

Is the heat pump cooling itself down? It is a combination heat pump/air conditioner wall unit.


If a unit is in heating mode the outdoor unit is in cooling mode (outside always does opposite of indoor) after a while if there is a build up of ice on outdoor coil unit stops and puts hot gas through outdoor coil to clear it. The indoor fan stops to avoid and heat loss in area served buy unit once this has been done and indoor unit coil is hot again fan will start. This is the correct operation of the unit to save against bust could and reduced efficiency

I have a Whirlpool Model ACQ158XPO wall/window air conditioner. Motor comes on but it does not cool. Any suggestions?


Its really tough to troubleshoot window units without pulling the cover off. If I was standing there looking at it without tools in my hand I would first make sure the fan/cool switch was in the fan high cool mode and that the thermostat was turned all the way to the coolest setting. Beyond that it needs to go in for repair. Wish I could be more help. Good luck.

My LG Lan125HV works fine on air conditioning ( cool) but heat pump does not trigger when I move to heat or combined settings. Tried all temperature and fan settings, tried waiting to see if unit waiting...


I talked to LG customer support (800) 243-0000. The tech told me that this model had a problem with the indoor thermistor. It doesn't fail with an open-circuit condition, so you don't get an error code. The thermister just goes out of range and believes your indoor temp is much hotter than it is. That's why the heating never comes on. I'll bet that, even though it ran in COOLING mode, once your room reached setpoint, it just kept on cooling & cooling ... because the thermistor was still giving a false, high temp reading.

So, I bought a new thermistor, P/N 6323A20042A. My unit worked fine. Until the next week when I turned heating back on and now I have the same problem ... gives cooling but no heat. Something is failing the indoor thermistor OR the distributor sent me an old-style thermistor, I haven't gotten determination on that yet.

Regardless, call LG and see if they can't direct you to a distributor for an indoor sensor. LG's warranty coverage for parts is a royal pain, unless you can show a receipt by a certified installer, you're not going to have much luck getting payment for the part. However, the thermistor is only $10. Just hope you get one that doesn't fail on you!

You have a control board issue. You can get a new control board by Google searching the make and the model of the unit. There are several sites that sell them

Hello, I have a Whirlpool refrigerator that is just over a year old (Model #ER8YHMXSB00). The freezer seems to be working fine but the refrigerator will not cool below approx. 50 deg F. This just started...


Hi,

Refrigerators and Freezer combination units have one common compressor and coolant for both units. If the refrigerator section is not getting cold I would check the following.
The cold zone is not blocked by a bag or box? The cold zone would be the coldest part of the refrigerator which vents the cold air from the freezer to the refrigerator.
Is the fan working on the refrigerator to vent the cold air to the refrigerator? You should be able to hear it when you hold the door switch.
The thermostat is not working which I have found most common is the thermistor is not registering the correct temperature causing the fan not to turn on.


Thank You for using Fixya.com

I have Goodman combination heating and cooling outdoor unit PBB series. I am wanting to know if when the heat is on should the fan outside turn or is that only ac


If it's a heatpump, then yes the outdoor fan will turn unless the unit is going in defrost mode. But for the majority of the time a heat pump is operating in heat mode, the outdoor fan is running.

Friedrich YM18J34 will not heat


Sounds like a bad limit switch. Open and test continuity on all limits with power off and at least one wire off one side of each
