Ac unit runs, inside blower shuts off after 2 mins, compressor continues to run, t-stat still calling for cool


My central AC unit decided to stop on the hottest day of the year. It would start and run normally for a few minutes and then the blower would shut off. After checking the breakers, thermostat and overflow shut off (did not have one) I saw something about a blower motor capacitor. This was easy to get to and replace and my last hope before waiting for someone to come fix it. The capacitor cost $4.04 with tax and had my AC working again. Needless to say I was beyond happy. I hope this can help others with a similar problem.

My ac unit has been down for a couple weeks but i have it working but now the outside fan and compressor dont shut off when the blower does. Im at my wits end now. Please help.


It seem the relay (power leads to outdoor unit) on indoor controller get stuck. If you used to leave the air condiotioner on stand by, now please try totally power off the unit by unplug the power then retry.

good luck.

Blower never stops. AC outside jammed to stay on???


You need to call someone who truely knows what they're doing. From your decription, the person you had out should not be working on units. You have a problem most likely caused be the person that installed the new motor and these units are not designed to be worked on by the homeowner. There are hazards that could cause damage or injury.

Blower in attic & AC unit outside continuously run


Sorry to hear about your miss-fortune, you are right it is an wiring problem. Can you turn off the blower with the thermostat (cool-off-heat) or what happens when you switch the fan to (auto or on) When you say the outside unit is "rigged" is it mechanically being jammed or electrically? If its mechanically that should be removed (what a crappy thing to do) other wise it will run continuously as you may already know. That is what it sounds like, you should just be able to shut the entire system down by turning off the switch to the furnace. If it is electrically being held closed, he changed some of the wiring around in the attic unit, you better hope he was lazy and jammed a stick in the contactor in the outside unit or else you may need to learn more about HVAC wiring, none the less I would double check the thermostat wires going to the attic furnace there should be nomenclature on the unit or at least somewhat marked. This was probably disturbed when the new blower was installed, by the way that was your initial problem. Good luck and becarful

Keeps turning off


FIRST all projection TV's have bulbs.
Some have filters either on the bulb cage or on the outside of tv or both. When the bulb gets too hot it will protect itself by shutting off - clean and make sure they have good airflow.

Unless your D/s buddy has infared power not heard of - it's probably not him.

No heat


First figure out if your unit is a heat pump, (where the unit outside both heats and cools your home) or it may be a propane or nat gas furnace, it could also be a hydronic heater (the water heater heats the home) let me know what you find out.
