You can probably rule out the capacitor and replace
the fan

Car runs hot when idling


Make sure the electric cooling fan(s) for the radiator are working.
TEST- anytime the air conditioning compressor kicks in, so should the cooling fans. Locate the a/c compressor on the engine, it's belt driven. Start the car and with the engine running observe the face of the belt pully on the compressor while an assistant turns on the a/c in the car (defrost feature on your heater control will also cycle on the compressor). You'll be looking to see that the front of the compressor pully starts spinning when the a/c or defrost is engaged. When that pully starts spinning the radiator fans are supposed turn on at the same time. If you see the compressor engage but the fan doesn't you have a blown cooing fan fuse, bad fan motor or a bad fan motor relay. If there is something wrong that your compressor isn't engaging in a/c or defrost and the fuses are ok, you're going to have to check the fan motor and relay by different means. You can disconnect the wiring plug to the fan motor. This is where you see if you can spin the fan blades by hand. It should spin very easily. If it is hard to spin or is siezed up, you found the problem. If the blades spin easily- direct jump current to the fan motor off the battery. If the fan doesn't work, replace it. If the fan works, check the relay. Locate the fan relay and look for another relay in the panel that is EXACTLY like it. WE WANT- another relay that is exactly the same BUT NOT critical for engine or a/c operation. We also want to know that whatever feature this candidate relay supplies power to is verified as functional. Swap the relays. If the fan still doesn't engage, check the function that you borrowed the relay from and verify THAT works with your original a/c relay in it. If you lost that function, try the proceedure with a 3rd relay if possible. Again check and recheck functions you borrowed the relay from. If you still get nothing, put the relays back to original placement. If you still are getting nothing from the fan and the other 2 functions, then the panel is toasting relays and you need either run the problem down or get the car into a professional. Now- if the fan won't engage but the other functions that you borrowed relay(s) from are still operational, we're going to give the relays a passing grade and it would seem you've got an electrical issue that, again, you need to run down or defer your efforts to a professional. Good luck on your endeavor.

Why wont my A/C Compressor and High Coolant Fans Engage?


Check for broken wiring, blown fuses, possible bad relays, and look at the pressure switch. Some systems have a high pressure switch (some have a low pressure also) that prevent the compressor from running. If it is faulty or damaged, it could be preventing the compressor from running. Wire damage could be possible with front end damage.

On 12 year old AC fan works, but there is a periodic muted buzz but compressor doesn't engage.


The hum is generally attributed to the compressor trying to start- being intermittent suggests it is failing and going into a delay via an internal safety switch. Assuming this and the fan you speak of is the condenser fan there are 2 good diagnoses- either the run capacitor is bad or the compressor is locked up. I would change the capacitor and install a hard-start capacitor, if the problem persists it would most likely require a new compressor.

Fan relay not working , fan keeps going on and off wont stay running


One of your fans works off the coolant temperature sensors input and will only engage when the coolant temperature reaches and/or exceeds a certain preset degree. The other runs off of your a/c compressor and when it engages so will the auxiliary or secondary cooling fan. Start the engine cold, turn on the a/c and listen for the secondary fan to engage then as it warms up listen to see if the primary fan engages. when it reaches running temperature. Please rate me on this answer.

My Duo-therm Brisk-Air by Dometic rv ac wont cool.(The fan runs )


Usually just listening closely will give you a rough idea where to look for problem. When you have the fan on and switch to cool, (with temperature turned down low obviously) do you hear any type of "moaning" sounds from AC unit, or see lights in RV dim slightly indicating that compressor is trying to engage? Is the breaker tripping when compressor tries to engage? Do you hear a "click" from AC unit when switched to cool? If none of that happens, then I'd start thinking thermostat, or compressor relay. Normally if it's a faulty capacitor, the compressor will try to engage but will make a "moaning sound" and usually trip the breaker due to excess current draw. Someone experience in electrical should be able to test relays etc, but whoever does work on it, should be aware that those capacitors, as well as hydro in general are very dangerous to work with. The ("zap",- Shock) that you can experience from a capacitor or hydro, can be fatal.

Compressor not coming on,temp is warm in freezer/fridge


You have a defective start relay on the compressor. That is your clicking sound. The overload relay is disengaging when you hear the click.
Replace the compressor start relay.

Frig and feezer stopped working


It sounds like the overload and relay on the compressor.If the problem isn't that then you need a compressor.
