Check the capacitor. If it looks swollen then it is most likely bad. You can check it with a multimeter with the capacitor check function. Try that and let me know what you have.

Why is my Intertherm P681S unit getting hot and the fan is is stopping?


Is the outside running? Is the outside fan running? Probably what is happening the fan outside quits running and the compressor gets hot and goes into thermal overload. need to check to make sure the outside fan is running.

Fan doesn't come on ..compressor seems to start.


If unit hasn't been running for a while, shut power off to it, and go up on roof and take a long stick or similar, and try to feed it through air slots in cover at back and try to spin the fan enough to rotate it 3 or 4 times. Then have someone turn power back on (with stick out of there obviously) and try turning on fan mode only to see if fan will now come on. If it does, run it for a few minutes then try cool again.
Sometimes they get a dead spot from not being used for a while, and this will get it going again. If you have trouble rotating it, remove cover and spin by hand well, but make sure power is off, then try it again. If unit was running recently, have capacitor checked first, then fan. Capacitors can give off a very dangerous shock due to high voltage stored in them, so don't try it yourself if not familiar with capacitors.

Fan quitting on unit


Maybe the room is dry enough so the humidity sensor is turning it off?

If not, maybe the thermisensor(fuse) on the fan motor is failing?

After about 5 minutes the unit stops working. No sound or even a fan noise. I just cleaned the filter to see if that helps, but it didn't.


Is the fan running and stopping before the unit completely quits?
If the fan quits the compressor won't run very long.
I would start with the fan motor or capacitor.
Shut the power off to the unit, spin the blower wheel to see if it spins freely. If it doesn't spin freely, (there appears to be a little drag when you spin it),the bearings are bad, if it does spin freely, then try moving the motor shaft from side to side if there’s any play in the shaft side to side then the bearings are worn and motor needs replaced. Then, check the capacitor, if it’s bulging even slightly, the capacitor is bad and needs replaced. Most of the time people replace the capacitor if motor seems ok. If capacitor is ok, turn power on to see if the motor is getting the proper voltage, if it is and not trying to run, then the windings are probably open, the motor's bad and needs replaced.

The a/c unit cooling fan shuts down shortly after unit kicks on.


If a fan motor quits working during a cycle it usually means that the thermal protector is turning it off. If you had an amp meter on it, you would notice that it is exceeding the listing on the nameplate, Nine times out of ten this is irreversable, the motor needs to be changed. Sometimes if there are oil ports on the motor, you can add a few drops of zoom spout oil and that does the trick. But usually the motor is already damaged. Good luck.

Forced air fan


You might have a sensor issue where it thinks it's too hot and kicks on the gas exhaust fan.
