The 2 most common issues are a freon leak or the outside unit fan start capacitor goes out. It's more likely a capacitor issue. They fail regularly. I had a fan capacitor go out on one of my 3 units last year and it cost close to $300 for an AC company to come out and fix it. I watched them fix it and it's something that you can do yourself if you know what you're doing and are careful to hook it up right. I have three AC units and another capacitor went out this year and I found a kit with detailed instructions with pictures and phone support at hvacrepairkits.com. It saved me over $200 on the capacitor replacement.

My coolin fan wont come on wat should I do


Cooling fan is controlled by a relay and a temp sensor. You need to check that each piece is working.
Run power to the fan. fan run? fan ok.
Bridge the relay. Fan run? run power to the relay coil. Fan run? relay good.
find temp sensor. replace.

Why my 2006 nissan maxima cooling fan wont come on


Defective fan thermostat, fan motor, or the engine is cool enough that the fan need not run.
Bypass the switch and place 12 voltes directly to fan motor to see if it will run.

Fan wont run on auto


Make sure your tstat is programmed for electric, not gas. Or in the settings you want that the TSTAT CONTROLS THE FAN.

I have a 901650 intertherm and the fan outside turns on but the air conditioner inside does not work. What could it be?


!st off, do you mean the indoor unit does nothing period as wont run? or wont cool?if it wont run, the checking breakers/fuses etc is a waste of time, as the transformers clearly providing the 24 volts to operate the contactor outside.If you switch your fan to "on" does the fan run?if not, check fan relay, or board or motor/cap etc.If the fan does run with the fan switch set to on, but not in cool mode, the auto function that sends power to green /fan via yellow?cool terminal in the tstat is open and not allowing the 24v to energize the fan relay.

4.1 engine. cooling fan wont come on.How can I test the fan motor? Or is itthe sensor?


disconnect the fan and plug it direct to battery using some jumper wires(speaker wires do fine) and if it runs then there is a problem with a coolant sensor or a cooling fan relay. If it doesn't run, then u need a new fan.
