My Coleman Evcon heating and air unit is not coming on

My Coleman Evcon heating and air unit is not turning on. You can hear the motor hum but the fan will not kick on. The outside unit will turn on just fine. It seems like the fan is struggling to turn. It will not blow any air. Please help!!!

It sounds like the fan motor is bad, try switching the thermostat on the wall from 'Fan Auto' to 'Fan On', that might get you by for a short period of time if it has a different speed set for A/C and fan only

If the fan inside is humming and struggling that is an indication it is need of replacement

    Hi. Is there any way you could estimate how much this would cost to be replaced. We have tried switching it from auto to on. The fan only hums and will not move. Thank you.

    The fan motor runs about $140.00 + or - depending on the exact fit. Labor will usually run about $125.00 unless it is in a real hard place to get to. This is a very rough estimate, it is average of what I charge

  • rennerm34 May 28, 2010

    Thank you. Should I try and order the fan myself?? The unit is in an area that can be easily worked on. Trying to save as much money as possible. Afraid of getting ripped off. Appreciate your help.

    I totally understand your concern. It is hard to find a legitimate company that will put in the parts that they do not supply. A legitimate company will mark up the parts just enough to cover their expenses if the part is defective and cover warranty that they offer.

    What I would suggest is to look at the motor, you may need to use a flashlight and mirror to see the tag on it. If you can find out the horse power of the motor and call your local appliance parts retailer and get the price on the motor before you call for service in your area, you can use that price as a baseline for the company you choose to come out. For example if you see the motor is a 1/4 horsepower and the parts house in your town has a 1/4 horse power blower motor for $125.00 tell that to the company and ask if they will match the parts price, most of the time they will or come close, they should be able to quote the exact labor on the phone.

    If you do not mind me asking, where do you live? What city or state

Coleman Evcon Eb15b we replaced thermostat last night so that wasn't it when. Put in auto for heat u can hear a click. See where and feel it heating up tgen u hear. Another. Click and nothing even the heat...

if you turn on heat and no fan comes on, the electric will over heat and trigger high limit switch. the switch either self resets after it cools for a while or needs manual reset. read directions on thermostat for electric heat. energizes fan at same time as heat on calling from stat.

My coleman evcon fan motor does not come on. I put the thermostat to on so the fan would run but it will not come on. The rest of the furnace runs properly.

Did you check to see if you have power or fuse blown? If it is a furnace/ air handler and you are comfortable with electricity. Turn
Power off, remove blower door. Find where thermostat wires come into the control board and remove them. If you can find a jumper wire or aligator clips, hook them between R and G. Put blower
door back on and turn on power,

Fan should come on right away, if it does you might have a thermostat problem. If nothing happens but you can hear it hum
or hear nothing at all. Then more than likely the capacitor is bad and or the motor is bad.

I have a Coleman Evcon gas (propane) furnace. When the t-stat is switched to heat the furnace heats up but the blower will never turn on. The unit then shuts down and tries to cycle again. I have replaced...

If the unit fires but the main blower fan doesn't come on the the unit is shutting off on a temp high limit switch and it sounds like the problem is the main blower fan motor or control

I have a coleman/evcon heat pump. When the thermostat kicks on the contacts kick in and hum but the compressor nor the fan run. Is this probably my capacitor has gone bad?

I would check the hig voltage power supply to the unit. Check the main breaker and make sure it is on. Check the disconnect and make sure there is power at that point to the condensing unit. The contactor will kick in from the low voltage in the control circuit.
