Question about Frigidaire FAA065M7A Air Conditioner

2 Answers

AC is cooling, just had the capacitor replaced, but the blower on the furnace continues to run. Also just had the thermostat replaced. Thermostat is set at 79, house temperature is 75 and blower kicks on. Does this have to be fixed immediately or is it ok for the blower to run?

    I have been having trouble with my Janitrol central air conditioning. First, it was cooling fine, but blower on the furnace continued to run. Called to have it checked. They replaced the thermostat, continued to have the same problem and about 2 weeks later, it stopped cooling. Called again for service. This time they replaced the capacitor. It seems to be cooling fine, but the blower on the furnace continues to run. The furnace/central air unit is about 16 years old. Will having the blower run, cause a problem that will stop the cooling from working? I am in the process of getting estimates for a new furnace/central air, but don't want to do this for at least 3 months.

It will hurt nothing for the blower to run continuously. Make sure the thermostat is not set for the blower to run all the time. You can turn the blower to automatic or run. Set it on auto.

I don't think it really hurts the blower to run, other than wear and tear on the bearings, mainly. Of course, any licensed HVAC guy would advise against it. It can overheat the relay and coil. I would recheck the wiring to the thermostat, but since the blower's on, it seems to me that the thermocouple is bad, keeping it on. I've just worked on my own stuff, so I'm not an expert, but with some reading on the net, one can usually narrow the problem down. In your situation, I would shut the heater down, and get the power disconnected to the fan. That would solve your problem for now, and give you time to check up on the heater fix. Good luck, and hope this helps.

I installed a run capacitor for my blower motor on my RUUD ac model UGPH10EBRJR. now it runs all the time. I even disconnected my thermostat and it kept running. is it my thermostat? or something else


An open limit switch may make the fan run all the time. Try disconnecting the Green wire @ the furnace...if that does the trick, then either the thermostat fan relay is stuck, or there is a short between the Red & Green wires somewhere in the thermostat wire.

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.

the electrician might be able to help somewhat but an hvac tech is the person to call. It sounds like you have multiple issues if the thermostat is acting up that bad replace it!! but that wont stop the noise from the furnace thats either the blower wheel or the motor. ive seen filters get sucked in the blower wheels and destroy them then they make a buch of noise. if the filter hadn't been changed in a few years then the motor is probably going bad. you could check to make sure there is nothing in the blower wheel. make sure the power is off open the bottom compartment of the furnace use a flashlight and look around then stick your hand in there and feel around, if there were animals before sometimes a blanket of hair can develop on the blower wheel. make sure you dont touch the capacitor which looks like a little siver can near the blower motor it can shock you even with the power off. good luck

Outside heating unit runs all the time


Usually when the furnace blower motor runs all the time
The limit switch or rollout switch is usually open or bad.
The furnace board is seeing that one of those switches is open, so it brings the blower on to try to get the heat out of the combustion chamber area, so the switch will close. But if the switch is bad and won’t close, the furnace board will keep the blower running continuously.

I think your problem is poor usage of the device,i.e. overloading the system. try running better cables to your furnace and ac. The reason i am lead to believe that is. If you already hired a pro to come and fix it for you,and he/she could'nt then what else could it be? in my experience ac units use electricity like microwave ovens.and power tools

The fan runs all the time.


Disconnect your thermostat from the wall. If the fan shuts off then you probably have a bad or miswired thermostat.
If it continues to run, disconnect the thermostat wires from the furnace. If this shuts the fan off then you have a problem with the thermostat wires.
If the fan continues to run with the thermostat wires off of the furnace,
then you have a problem with the furnace.
Even though the fan stays on...... does the furnace still work? If so I bet you have a bad or stuck blower relay. If the furnace does not function other than the blower than you most likely have a safety control that is open. Worst case you could have a bad circuit board.
Good luck.....

Goodman a/c blower fan will not shut off


Unhook the thermostat wires on the furnace. If the blower shuts off then your problem is either the thermostat or the thermostat wires. If it contiues to run check you high limit switches next. If all else fails you most likely have a bad blower relay. On most modern furnaces the blower relay is part of the circuit board.
Good luck
