Zaiko e5 error how I can fix my ac


E5 indicates excessive temp. of the outside coil if on cooling, OR excessive temp of the inside coil in

heat mode. On cooling, the E5 will appear if the outside coil temp exceeds 68C. This is an indication

of condenser airflow reduced or non-existent. Using the procedure described above it is possible to

watch the condenser coil temp using the Temp down button and Medium fan speed combination to

display this temp. NB: if fans etc seem to be OK then measure thermistor resistance and refer to table

12. In case the problem is thermistor calibration.

Action: If unit is in cooling mode, examine both condenser fans are running. If

one is running then suspect a faulty motor. If both fans not running then

on units up to serial No. IBSA 01175, investigate the fan speed control

card located in enclosure on the LHS See fig 6.

If this checks OK then investigate main control card.

Fig 1, 2 or 3. Units with serial No's IBSA01176 and

onward are multi speed tapped wound motors not requiring a speed
control card. If both motors inoperative then suspect main control card

WHAT CAUSED MY CONDENSER FAN TO STOP RUNNING


If the refrigerator is running without any other problems, then just replace the fan motor. Here is the fan and it is only $36.80. No where near $100.00!

How do i clear the drain path?.where is it lowcation


Hello, if therr is no drain visible under the unit toward the back, then the unit uses the condenser fan blade to scoop up the condensate and splash the comdenser, this is done to keepmthe condenser cool and to evaporate the condensate.

My goodman cental air system is having problems. First, the blower inside (furnace) keeps running for hrs after the outside condensor shuts down. Now, the condenser blower motor wont operate at full speed....


the cause of your indoor fan running all the time or for long time after your heat pump has stopped heating is the fan delay relay. It has welded its internal contacts together. If you take off the side below the control panel, the fan delay relay is normally mounted on the header where the fan discharges. Good news, the fan delay relay are fairly inexpensive and easily to change.

As far as the condensing fan motor not running at full speed, when it was changed, did the technician install the correct fan motor. Most condensing fan motors are either 875 rpm or 1175 rpm. They are exactly the same size and if the technician did not look closely he could have installed the wrong rpm motor. There is another possibility, he may have used the wrong capacitor. I have seen the condensing fan actually operate backwards at a lower than normal rpm. The fan if properly installed will discharge air upwards.

Kenmore model 3639550610. Ice maker motor and freezer fan motor wont stop. Need to find wiring diagram.


Hello,
If fridge repair because it is noisy, turning off and on, or running all the time, it could be a sign the condenser fan motor is going bad. Thankfully, this type of repair is not as complicated as some may think. You can check the condenser fan motor yourself and replace it if necessary.

Tools and Materials Needed:

* Multitester
* Screwdriver
* Needlenose pliers

Step 1 - Disconnect the Power

Turn off the power to the refrigerator to prevent electric shock.

Step 2 - Remove the Condenser Fan Motor

The condenser fan motor is located on the bottom of the fridge, most likely toward the back. Heat from inside the fridge is released into the air here. A panel will probably need to be removed to access the motor. Depending on the screw, a screwdriver or nut driver will be required to remove the panel. Find the condenser fan and motor. You can quickly check the fan's operation by seeing if anything is obstructing its rotation. Manually move the fan blades to see if they spin freely. If they do not, you may need to replace the fan. Continue removing the condenser fan motor by taking out the screws that affix it to the mounting bracket.

Step 3 - Test the Condenser Motor

Your condenser fan motor will most likely have 3 wires attached. Some models have just 2. Note which wires are connected from the fan to the motor. Use needle-nose pliers to remove the wire connectors from the motor. Be careful not to damage the wires. After the connectors are removed, use the multitester to check the resistance or passage of electrical current. Set your multitester to ohms.

If the condenser motor has 3 terminals, only the outside terminals need to be checked. The inside one is a ground terminal. Check the terminals by using the multitester probes, touching one probe to one terminal and the other probe to the other terminal. The reading should fall between 0 and infinity. If you reading falls on either 0 or infinity, then the condenser motor is bad and will need to be replaced.

Step 4 - Replacing the Condenser Motor

Condenser fan motors can be ordered from the refrigerator's manufacturer. Once you receive the new motor, check it with your multimeter the same way as the old motor. This will make sure the new motor is in working condition. Attach the wire connectors to the new motor in the identical locations as the old one. You can refer to the new motor's wiring diagram (most likely included with it) if assistance is needed. Now install the new motor under the fridge. Attach it to the mounting bracket using the same screws as before.

Step 5 - Testing the New Motor and Keeping it Efficient

With the new motor connected and attached, turn the power back on. The unit should operate correctly. If it does not come on, check the wiring. Dust and dirt can plug a condenser and affect the fan's ability to discharge heat. Cleaning them several times a year will help the fridge run efficiently.
Hope this help in solving.take care....

Control lights ( temperature readings etc ) are consistently blinking on and off, accompanied with a beeping sound


Main control board is over
temperature. Look for blocked condenser air flow or inoperative condenser fan motor.
Refrigerator over 48°F or
freezer over 15°F for 3 hours.
Run diagnostics and test operation of all components.
Both thermistors failed.
Run diagnostics and test thermistors and thermistor leads.
No feedback from evaporator fan
motor. Run diagnostics and test fan motor and/or wiring. The manual is HERE

Mini fridge-ice maker stopped cooling. Cleaned coils underneath-still not cooling


If it is running but not cooling, I"ll clean the condenser first then make sure the condenser fan motor is running, if the condenser fan motor is not running, re place it with new one, or if compressor and condenser fan motor are running then it will be sealed system problem, if it is not cover by Warr. it is not worth to fix it.

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
