Hi there.

The problem is not with the fan its the main controller board, that for some reason becomes faulty with these models and stop supplying the fan with sufficient voltage to operate, not really worth fixing because locating one is hard enough and then the part costs $578 (as quoted for my one). What I have just finished doing to mine, is hard wiring an old nokia charger (transformer) inside the projector, connecting it to the underside of the power supply board (to the 240V inlet plug) which supplies the fan with its own power supply thus fixing the problem without spending hundreds. The down side to this is the fan will keep spinning as long as the projector is plugged in (could be fixed with a switch). This isn't even an issue for me because I always unplug it when I'm finished with it anyways, and it allows the bulb to be cooled for a lot longer than the factory set time, and also saving me from spending thousands on a new projector haha =), hope this help in some way or another.

Cheers

Condenser fan not engaging


Possibly low on refrigerant. When system is low on freon, it does not build up enough high side pressure to engage the condenser fan . When pressure is high enough. a high side pressure switch kicks on the cond. fan to maintain high side pressure. Have the system evacuated and recharged to proper level.

Condenser fan not engaging when A/C turned on. All fuses and relays look fine. Tested fan with eternal power and it runs.

A system dye can be added to check for any possible leaks.

2000 acura tl coolant fan after fluid change


New thermostat, installed, saw, new coolant made a little mess filling reservoir, (normal) checked fan fuse for some reason, and condenser fan fuse (xxx ?:), and temp guage, is slightly lower on gauge (than normal?) (disconnected xxxx? quit? a bit? to get to thermosta?.t no dash warning lights have a feeling I popped a relay.

Answer:

ok, you did a coolant service with STAT,

and it failed.

tell us what works right and wrong, symptoms only.

over heating? parked, (fan never comes on)? as it hits 225F?

under heating? ( fan stuck on , up North can cause huge cold engine)

dash gauge stuck low. (thermostat wrong heat range 180f is best. see FSM for spec. on this temp. spec..

Dash guage varies.? oddly (air in system)?

Dash gauge too high.? (Stat put in upside-down or bleed hole (jiggle) not UP side. higher side of mount , trapping air.)

Does something wrong happen only driving?

leaks?

does cap on rad hold 12-14psi pressure, hot.?

if car has fan belts, are they tight? (for sure water pump does)

AMANA SIDE BY SIDE, INOP, FREEZER COILS ICE, FAN INOP IN FREEZER. REPLACED THERMOSTAT, DEFROST TIMER AND FAN, STILL INOP. HEATER WORKS AND HAS 32 OHMS.


Check the BLUE wire from the temp control to the ORANGE wire of the defrost timer for continuity. That is the complete fan circuit. You should read the resistance of the Evap fan motor. If you do not read resistance suspect the pins of the evap fan motor connector or... the Unbilical harness from near the evap to the icemaker and the evap fan. The connector pins of the Evap fan motor connector (Freezer connector) are notorious for failing.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Air on heat pump not cool outside unit humming but not kicking on


This could be an inoperative condenser fan.System will kick off on high pressure without proper air flow.The hum indicates voltage is present. Providing the fan motor is not locked up and will spin,Check your run capacitor which helps boost the motor voltage initially and will get it turning.If the cap is good,you may be faced with motor replacement....good luck

Just replace compressor keep tripping circuit breaker


Shut the power off to the unit, spin the fan blade to see if it spins freely. If it doesn't spin freely, (there appears to be a little drag when you spin it),the bearings are bad, if it does spin freely, then try moving the motor shaft from side to side if there’s any play in the shaft side to side then the bearings are worn and motor needs replaced. Then, check the capacitor, if it’s bulging even slightly, the capacitor is bad and needs replaced. Most of the time people replace the capacitor if motor seems ok. If capacitor is ok, turn power on to see if the motor is getting the proper voltage, if it is and not trying to run, then the windings are probably open, the motor's bad and needs replaced.
The fan motor could have been your problem all the time, because if the fan doesn't come on or runs slow, it causes high head pressure,
which causes high amps, which could trip your breakers.

Fan won't turn on. When I turned it on for the first time this summer, it won't blow cold air. I tried the different settings. The air compressor comes on, but the fan doesn't. Nothing happens with the fan...

Refrigerator not working properly


There may be a door switch which turns the blower motor off when door is open. If this fan switch is bad it would cut power to the motor.

LG Fridge making intermittent sound - like something hitting fan


GAIN ACCESS TO THE FAN IN THE FREEZER(EASIER SAID THAN DONE) AND INSPECT THE FAN BLADE AND FAN SHROUD. HAVE REFRIGERATOR TURNED OFF AND MANUALLY ADVANCE FAN BLADE. WATCH FOR SLIGHT CONTACT BETWEEN THE FAN BLADE AND OTHER OBJECTS NEAR IT-ELECTRICAL WIRING, FAN SHROUD, ICE CYCLE,ETC. ADJUST FAN BLADE OR OBJECT TO INCREASE CLEARANCE.
