The buzzing noise is probably the fan motor. Is the compressor running? First make sure that there are no tripped breakers. After that kill the power and check the capacitor with a multimeter. If that checks good then check the fan motor windings with the multimeter. Let me know if you have any questions.

SOURCE: Fan will not work on outside unit.

Check the voltage to the contactor coil, it will do that if the voltage is low. This is the 24 volt part.

Hello
There are a few things here that could be wrong.
1 Fan motor start capacitor is bad.Silver battery looking device on side of fan.Remove and replace with a new one.

2 Contactor for fan motor is pitted or burnt .If this is the case you will need a new contactor.

3 Fan motor is bad.Check top two before assuming this.
Check all fuses and circut breakers also.

Hi!!

This means that the condenser fan motor (outside unit) failed, this caused to build hi pressure and either activated a safety valve to release the extra pressure or blew a line and R22 Refrigerant escaped from system.

The fix is to replace motor fan and capacitor find the leak and refill system with R22 Refrigerant Gas. It is safe to turn on the Fan Only mode on the Thermostat until a HVAC Tech arrives.
To perform this job parts and labor included will cost: about $300 -.$400. Look on the Yellow Pages for a Tech in your neighborhood.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to Rate this post!!

AC compressor wiil not turn on


You will have to find the contactor which is located in the outside unit. And check the voltage at the contactor, 26 v as this is the thermostat calling for the compressor to come on. You can also push in the contactor and see if the fan and compressor start. There should be an outside fuse box close to your condensing unit. Good luck

Fan not working on my CPLE36-1C AC unit outside. Why?


Hello Tim First Turn the power off! Try to turn the fan blade with a twig or something.Is it tight ? It should turn freely.If yes open the cover where the wires connect & check if the capisitor is expanded or leaking if so replace that with the SAME one (uf value&volts).Check for burnt wires also.The capicitor is a round or oval shaped can (looks like a large battery) with wires cliped/pluged in on top.Next let the motor cool off 1 hour and restore power.Does it BUZZ for a short time then stop?If yes its new motor time.Good luck

Fan not blowing


Even when the power is off at the unit outside the thermostat will supply power to the contactor of the outside unit. This may give a hum or buzz as you stated. If when the power is on to the outside unit the fan tries to start but only hums the motor may be bad. Does the compressor start and run?
