Hi. It may be the fan but before you replace anything give it all a thorough cleaning. Remove all dust, lint, animal fur etc. Then leave it run for 24 hours and check it again. If you still have the same humming replace the fan. J.

Outside unit will only run for a short amount of time with A/C before the fan stops turning and starts humming, squealing/screeching and the top of the outside unit gets hot.


The bearings are bad in the motor and after the fan runs enough it eventually gets hot, making the bearing screech and the fan locks up. Need to replace motor again. See if it has a warranty. The reason it gets hot is because the fan is what removes the heat from the coil and if the fan isn't running there is nothing to cool it off so to speak.

My outside Kelvinator central ac unit will not turn on. I hear a faint humming noise coming from it so it appears that it is getting power but won't turn on. My fan in the house will turn on and...


Its possible that the contactor that closes to start the outdoor unit is not pulling in and passing power. You are hearing the coil humming since it is getting control power. Also first check that breaker for outdoor unit is not tripped

Unit runs for about 5 min the cuts off. whats the problem?


Hi!!
It could be many things, the most common are Low R22 refrigerant, bad fan motor, bad compressor. obstructed condenser coil, bad starting relay, bad capacitor. among other things.
To check fan motor, set unit to HI Fan Only setting and let it run for a while, check that fan did not loose speed and it is not getting too hot.
If fan is OK, then turn unit to HI Cool 60-65 degrees and see what happens. Hear if compressor kicked in or if just made a humming noise and stopped. if this happens, replace capacitor.
Keep me posted!! Rate this post!!

Fan wont kick on


If you are talking about the condenser fan not running, that would cause the unit to shut down on high discharge pressure. Is the indoor fan running? Check the capacitor for the outdoor fan. Also make sure the outdoor fan has power to it. If it has power and the capacitor is good then the fan motor may be bad. If the nc in your name stands for NC then it is possible I could take a look at it as I am in NC. Let me know what you find.

Freezer builds ice on inside wall not cold in refrigerator whats worng


your evapartor is freezing up. you have an airflow problem or low on freon. I would first clean the condeser which is on the back of the unit by the compressor you will see a fan and a coil I use a brush and vaccum cleaner to clean it. You will have to turn off the unit to unfreeze the coil. You might listen in the freezer to see if you hear the fan running. if it is not the fan is located behind the plastic sheild in the freezer. sounds like the defrost timer or defrost heater is not working,

RV A/C blower not working and keeps kicking out


If blower not working, and yoou hear a slight "Hum" with fan only on, try this. With power off to AC. Go up on roof, and slide a stick through opening on side near rear, and try to get to fan blades at rear of unit. try to spin the blades a few times, even if it only goes a little at a time. Unless you want to take all those screws out & remove cover to get at it better, but watch for wasps under there. Give fan a couple of full rotations, then have someone turn it on to fan only & see what happens. If fan finally works, let it run for a few minutes on fan, then try cool & see if it all comes together again. Let me know.

Side by sise refrid freezer top is not cooloing on freezer side warm on refergerator side


suspect fan is not working - can you hear fan?
if not, chances are fan is jammed with ice build up. take back panel off inside freezer and if there is ice build up, melt off with a hairdryer. also check for continuity thro fan and make sure it rotates freely

Refrigerator not colling properly


Let it run until you have a problem again then look at the back wall of the inside of the freezer, if there is frost then it's not defrosting and that would be your problem (usually the defrost heater). If you don't see frost then you need to determine if the compressor is running or not. It's possible to hear the two fans run, but not the compressor. If the compressor is running, along with the 2 fans, then it is a sealed system problem and usually not worth fixing. If it's not running you'll need to check the compressor start relay on the side of the compressor. It is possible for a bad compressor to cause the relay to fail, so replacing it may or may not get you going again.
