Re: high cool and low cool not working

Pls check the following....
1) Fix the wire connector to Reversing vale
2) Check the Capacitor if this a low capacitance or (open) not function using Multi-tester.
3) Check the Selector switch if this is not function using Multi-tester . or check the PCB Board (if electronic your units) replaced the Board.

If not yet,go to the nearest repairman to repair that units.

Thank you,have a nice day.

Ac works fine when fan is on low but fan cuts off after a couple of minutes on high

Bad fan motor. Multi-speed motors have a set of windings for each speed. Your high speed is bad so the only solution is to replace the complete motor. When motors are going bad they will over heat and kick out on the heat safety. As it cools back down it will start again for a short time again until it gets hot again.

Fan will only blow on low when heat is on

your fan most likely is wired for low speed for heat which is common. this should be determined when furnace is set up properly. motors that aren't modulating motors and are multispeed motors typically have low medium and high taps that come off the motor and go to the corresponding relay on the board. low and medium speeds are used for heat and high and medium speeds are used for cooling. but only one speed for heat and one speed for cooling many times medium never gets used. im not familiar with klimaire is this a mini split system and not a regular air handler. cause speed control should be adjustable from the remote. if its a split but if not reaching desired speed due to a malfunction in the units could cause it to run low speed just to maintain the temperature exiting the indoor unit.

Can i install a time temp. type defrost control instead of the demand defrost type in the above unit? also i see no reason for the fan control board (low to High speed) since the fan motor does not call...

Defrost timer might be more reliable here in NY I set them @ 45minutes..The fan speed is out side tempature (ambient) selected ,low speed, running when its cooler out but you still use cooling.HIGH speed being the default speed.High/low during spring and low all winter.If your new motor is only one speed power it direct from the contactor

High low fan motor

Your main concern is the temperature difference across the indoor coil for both heating and cooling. When you turn your thermostat from auto to on, you are on high speed.

If you have long duct runs and little return air registers then high speed
would help cool the house better. However in the heating mode, you
could lose up to 10degrees by having the high speed setting.

What they installed is sized for your house and the speeds should not have to be changed unless the ductwork is not sized right for the house.
Cooling should be High-Black wire.
Heating should be Low-Red Wire.

400cfm equals a ton of cooling= 1200 sq. foot, For cooling you need
High speed. For heating it is whatever the temperature rise across the
coil is, which is located on the furnace/air handler.

Fan will not run on high. Compressor runs fine but the fan will not run on high. Works fine on low and med.

It's the mode switch contactors for the high setting just overview the wiring of the high cool or high fan contactors if it's not there check all leads for the high fan or high cool circuitry.

This is a heating and cooling through the wall heat pump. It works normally when heating is selected - the heat pump runs and both speeds of the fan blow warm air. But nothing runs when cooling is...

You have a bad board or bad switch. I would say board. You can have service tech check this out. There is only so far you can go without knowledge of Controls ad electricity. Russ

No high speed on blower motor

if motor works on heat, but not on cool ,then the low speed is energized by the heat strip or control board .if the motor doesn't run in high on cool, then the fan relay or black high speed tap from the board is not being energized. usually its the fan relay ,which is only a factor in cool in high speed fan mode. try turning fan to on at stat. that energizes fan relay and blower should run in high. gently tap the side of the fan relay and see if fan comes on all of a sudden. if it does the relay is bad. change it wire for wire label all wires and use exact replacement relay unless you know how to read wiring diagram then you can use a 90-340 generic fits all replacement. trace motor power wires back to relay or control board to find where they are fed from.

High cool not working

Compressors on these units runs at only one speed. The change to high cool is only a change in blower speed moving air faster over the cooling coil. I would have the running capacitor for the fan motor checked. A bad capacitor can cause your type of problem. The other problem could be that the high speed winding in the fan motor is bad. Try it operation in the fan only position through the two speeds. If it works in the low and high speed for fan only your problem could be in the selector switch.

Ruud heat pump outside fan

You may be right in looking at the motor. It uses a different speed on heat than cool. The heat cycle uses low speed, usually red. Some manufactures use blue (medium). Cool uses black, high speed. If you are confident, switch the low speed wire with the high speed and see if this changes anything. If the fan motor isn't the problem, check the other setting (cool) if the overload trips, you may need to look into a new capacitor or compressor, if so, you can install a hard start kit. these are start boosters, and are inexpensice, sometimes they will give another year out of the comp. but I've put them on and they have lasted 5 years.
