Hello,

The most likely problem is the motor of the ac units
If the air conditioner fan motor simply shuts off during the beginning or middle of operation, you need to replace the fan motor immediately. The motor has some type of electrical short or other problem that is causing it to fail during operation. This will only get worse over time. You may attempt a repair of the fan motor to identify and fix the short, but the time and effort that you spend in this type of an approach may be better spent finding a replacement motor and installing it yourself.

Good luck and hope this is helpful.....

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.

It is a Bryant Legacy AC unit. Model #123RNA060-B. It has been running fine, now it has suddenly shut down. The interior fan is working, but the fan at the compressor shuts down. It will work fine for...


I had a unit do the same thing to me, everytime I would leave, it would stop working again. I had a bad fan motor that would spin fine and work for a little while, but would shut down. It was the motor windings that would overheat and shut off, as soon as they cooled, it would start back up. One way to check is to feel the top of the unit where the base of the fan mounts and see how hot it is, best to check while it's not working how it should, but try not to run it very long or you could damage the compressor. Hope this helps!

The fan in my 04 lancer ralliart starts running when I start the car and for about 30 secs after I shut it off. It never ran all the time until a month or so ago. What could be the problem?


The fan is controlled by a thermal "something" This item senses temprature and turns the fan(s) on and off as need be. IF it is on all of the time, Look for sensors in the water system, on the engine, usually up high... You can disconnect one at a time while shut down, and the fans should stop when you get the correct one. Other designs use a relay, but more failure happens at the thermal transducer...

AC Condenser motor will stop at 1pm but inside unit is still running but no AC. If I turn the AC unit breaker unit off and then an hour later turn it back on. The unit runs fine all day until 1pm. Had a...


Hi, the tech should have been able to figure the stat out with out a manual to see why the condenser is shutting off at 1:00 P.M. This is unusual for this to happen, unless it was winter and this is a heat-pump going into defrost, but just the fan would shut down. Does this unit have a box on it that was installed by your electric company that shuts the unit off during high peak conditions in the summer? This would cause it to shut down at the same time everyday. If not, it would have to be something in the thermostat that is set for it to shut off at that time. It still does not make since, as it would shut both the indoor and outdoor unit off, not just the condenser. Are you saying that just the condenser fan motor is shutting off, but the compressor continues to run until it shuts off on high head pressure when the fan stops, or does the complete outdoor unit shut down fan, compressor and all at that time??. It sounds to me like this outdoor unit has a time delay relay that has a fault in it may be shutting it off at this time daily? Please let me know if its just the condenser fan motor that shuts off, or if the complete unit is shutting off all together, this will help .
Sincerely,

Turned ac on, could hear the compressor, but the fan did not come on. 4 hours later turned on unit and everything runs fine. why would fan not come on


could be the controls, or the motor itself, it has a built in thermal sensor in the windings of the motor that will shut off the motor if it gets too hot and then resets after it cools off

Lennox air unit not blowing cold air


your fan motor outside is going bad, have a service company change it out for you.

the motor stopped working and that overheated the compressor shutting it down on thermal cutout, and it will only come on once it cools down

We have a Coleman 7300 rooftop ac unit. When the


The fan motor is getting hot and going off on the internal overload in the motor.
This is caused by either a low voltage, a bad capacitor, or tight or dry bearings in the motor.
To check the bearings turn the power off to the unit, then spin the fan blade if it spins freely then the bearings are ok.
To check the capacitor you will need some kind of
tester or you can buy a capacitor and replace it, that's what a lot of people do. They usually don't cost very much.
To check the voltage you will need a voltmeter and measure the volts at the unit.

SOUND AND PIC GOES OUT FOR 30 SECONDS, THEN PIC COMES BACK THEN SOUND. IS THIS THE LAMP OR THERMAL FUSE OR WHAT.


The lamp is going bad. If it was the thermal fuse it would not be intermittent. It is very common for some Sony sets like yours to do exactly what you describe when the lamp is going bad.

FAN IS NOT WORKING ON MY CARRIER UNIT


Hi,
It sounds like it is the run capacitor on the fan motor is defective.
Typically when this fails, the motor will buzz, and get hot - without rotating. When it gets too warm, the temperature cut-out will shut it off untill it cools down.

Try replacing this with one of a similar value or a genuine part.

I don't think it is under warranty after this time.
