The outdoor fan may operate at two speeds. The hotter the discharge air temp at the outdoor unit, the faster the fan runs. I would check the suction line and liquid line to see if they get cool when you call for cooling.It is very hard to tell if the compressor is operating since they are so quiet.

If this is not the case, you very well could have a bad capacitor,

The drain pan is dry. There is ice buildup on the top half of the defroster. The compressor runs nonstop. The temp doesn't get any cooler than 45. The condenser is clean enough to see through and the door...


Is the evaporator fan motor running? If it is only running at half speed or not at all, that could explain the ice buildup. If the coils are icing up because of no air flow over them, then the defrost heater stays on, trying to get rid of the ice.

Why would evap fan running slow


If u turn the fan by hand and it turn then u need a new fan, and i think u are mixing up the fans, the fan inside the refrigerator would be the evaporator fan if that was broken then your compressor would be cold, the fan inside the compressor section would be the condenser fan, if that was defective then your compressor would be hot causing the compressor to short cycle. change the fan and clean your condenser coil and your problem should be gone,

Goodman heatpump fan runs, condenser wont start


Either the condenser fan has bad bearings, or it has a defective fan capacitor.
Turn off the breaker to the outside unit.
Spin the fan blade by hand.
If the fan blade spins easily and will spin a few revolutions with no problem the fan bearings are good.
If not, replace the fan motor due to bad bearings.
I am pretty sure you fan motor is bad because with a bad capacitor the fan motor will not get up to speed and may just sit and overheat.
I'm leaning toward a bad fan motor.

Hy Pls do check your fan motor in your engine bay mounted on the radiator, check for the 2nd fan speed is running during the temperature is almost half. When u first switching the unit, the a/c fan is running, then at certain temp the fan motor is running faster(2nd speed). If u dont get any changes in motor speed then u have to replace a 2nd hand fan motor. Good luck

Check incoming voltage circuit and wiring for proper gauge wire etc, and have compressor start capacitor tested, or replaced. I'm curious as to why circuit breaker didn't trip in panel when compressor causing so much current draw, that's reason for checking wiring etc to AC circuit.

Hello,
One additional thing to check is behind that rear vent behind that cardboard covering for the compressor. See if the fan motor next to the compressor is clean and the fan seems to running at a high speed. If that fan motor is running but doesnt seem to running as fast as say a table top fan would be running,go ahead and replace that fan motor.

What powers the cooling fan motors my ac is not cooling properly the motors come on, but they are not turning fast enough. got straight power to motors, they both work ok.


you may find that the cooling fans only run at half speed when the a/c is on they might be set that way & run at full speed when the engine starts to overheat (in stop & go traffic) the a/c may need regassing that's why it is not cooling properly.....hope this helps...... cheers..

The outside fan motor (OFM) will not turn off.


it sounds like your fan connector is on the same side of the contactor where your high voltage enters you should have 3 wires 1 wire for each pole of the contactor and 1 wire off the capacitor does the compressor run all the time too? try turning the power switch off on your indoor air handler / gas furnace if the power goes off the fan goes off then it could be low voltage wiring
