Hi, this fan is the condenser fan motor. The motor has probably failed, bearings or open windings, You can check the capacitor to see if it is faulty, leaking any oil, swollen like its ready to burst. If so, change it out. When the condenser fan motor fails, always replace the run capacitor with it, it must be changed with the new motor. You can remove the fan guard on top after the unit has been running, and the motor body should be very hot. With the power off, turn the blade to see how it turns, if the bearings are frozen or its tight you will no. You will have to buy one at a appliance parts house or if you know a contractor, they can get one at cost for you at a a/c parts house. These motors go out a lot as they work hard in the heat. When we get our first heat wave here, this is what we do first is start getting lots of calls to replace these motors. Check these things and let me know.

    Thank you for the very kind rating. I am sure you have lost the motor. I replace about 12 per summer.

My LG LWHD1200FR air conditioner turns on, but the fan doesn't spin and no cold air comes out. What's the problem? How do I fix this?

Which fan doesnt spin the inside fan or outside fan? If its the outside fan try replacing the dual capacitor for the fan and the compressor. First take the fan blade and see if it spins freely if you spin it and it stops immedietly the fan bearings are bad. If it spins freely replace dual capacitor. If trhis helps please rate me and do a testimonial.

I have a Intertherm heat Pump. Everything turns on inside the house. Blows warm air and the outside Fan wont turn on. Both the outside copper pipes are same temp, neither hot nor cold. Don't know the modle...

If the fan outside doesn't work the compresor will overheat and shut off by the thermal protection inside the compressor , to fixed this you have to replace the fan motor and its capacitor.

Outside fan will NOT turn off

A relay can be welded "closed" and cause this. It is in the outside half of the air conditioner. If you have printed circuit boards, it's a lot harder to guess what's wrong from over here, but I've actually seen this problem when it was caused by a relay. Of course, I am assuming no person has been in there changing wires around.

Open it up, find the relay where one of the fan wires is going, give it a sharp rap with a screw driver handle. If that fixes it, replace the relay.
