Air Conditioner Trouble - Review the Possibilities


Sep 02, 2010 | Panasonic Room Air Conditioner CWXC104HU

1 Answer

We have a 1.5 Panasonic split type inverter airconditioner. Our understanding is that the compressor fan is not supposed to stop at any time. Rather, it just operates at low speed when temperature has...

The 'usual' operation - is for the compressor 'and' the fan to go "off" once the desired temperature is reached - and back "on" when the cooling area warms back up. This operation is controlled by a thermostat inside the AC.

if however - your AC is 'supposed' to operate as you state - and the fan goes off - stays off for a period of time - and then comes back on - it's very possible that it 'fan' is getting 'hot' and going off on the 'internal moter overload.'

A good way to check this is to feel of the fan motor after it's gone off. If it's hot - and I mean 'hot - not warm' when you touch it - then chances are good that the internal overload is causing it to go off - which is usually a precursor of the fan motor completely stopping and needing replacement.

If it's not possible for to feel the motor - another check would be to try and make the fan motor 'run' after it's gone off. Try turning it on by itself (fan only) with the switch. It should come on - and if it doesn't - then chances are good that it's off on the overload I spoke of.

One other possibility is that the fan motor 'capacitor' is defective. The 'capacitor' is a little gray/silver thing about half as big as a pack of cigerettes - and has electric wires connected to it, usually two (2). Some of the time when a capacitor goes bad it will 'bulge' around the top - which makes it obvious that it (capacitor) is bad. Often - though - it will not give a physical indication that it is bad. If you suspect the motor is getting hot and going off on the overload you can turn off all power and remove the capacitor and take it to an Air Conditioning Supply House and get an exact replacement (be sure and mark your wires before removing the old one - so you can wire the new one back up).

While it's possible that your AC is made to work as you described - the 'usual' mode of operation (as I said above) is for both - the compressor and the fan motor to go 'on and off' - at the same time - so I was wondering if it (AC) was merely cycling on and off like it was supposed to on the thermostat.

Do you have a 'cooling' problem - in other words is it cooling as it should. If it is - then it's possible what you're noticing is just normal operation.

hope this has helped

Panasonic cs-c12cxp6 it is forming ice inside and the fan is not shooting as strong as be fore?

You have a cloggeds evaporator coil. You can take it out and clean throughly with a water hose. Or you can get a spray can of evaporator coil cleaqner from one of the bigger homeimprovment stores. Furthermore, make sure that the filter is clean, and clean it often. You'll have to turn it off to allow for full thawing, but if you leave the fan on high it will speed the thawing of unit.

I have a Panasonic 1200 BTU air conditioner, that ...

The ball bearings in the fan motor is toast. Options: 1. Contact your dealer or Panasonic directly. This is a known problem and Panasonic will send you a new fan motor for free or at a reduced price, depending on the age of your unit. You will probably have to change it yourself, or call a tech to do it for you (about 1 hour of work).
2. Change the ball bearing(s) in the fan motor yourself. 1-2 hours of work if you are somewhat handy. Buy a CERAMIC bearing (Size 608, ZZ, Ceramic - the same size you use for a skateboard) @about 10 USD (7 EUR) in your local hardware store. You probably only have to change one bearing, the one on the "inside".

I have a Panasonic 1200 BTU air conditioner, that is 6 years old. It is 'squeaking' pretty steadily. It still works well as far as putting out cool air. Is there a way for me to get this fixed?

the 'squeaking noise' you hear is pretty much 1 of 4 problems with the unit.

1) Most likely it's a fan motor where the bearings are going out (metal to metal is causing the squeaking). The 'fix' for this problem is to change the motor which will run around $150 if you call a repairman, maybe more depending on the motor. I've been told there are still mfc's who put motors in their units 'that can be oiled' and I'm not going to say that's not true - but I haven't seen a motor that can be oiled - in years. They (mfc's) just don't do it anymore - after all - 'we're in a throwaway society you know.

Speaking of which - it might be 'cost effective' for you to think about buying a new unit, i.e. the cost of a new unit over the cost of repairing what you have. If you spend the extra cash for a new unit - then everything is "new" especially the compressor which is the heart of any AC unit.

2) Sometimes 'compressors' will also squeak - again it's bearings that are causing the noise and if it's a compressor - then you are in big trouble and should 'seriously' start thinking about a new AC.

3) a third possibility but not very likely - and that is it could be something as simple as a fan blade/squirrel cage (the fan mtr turns a blade and usually a squirrel cage) hitting some other part of the AC in such a way where you think it's squeaking you are hearing. I doubt if this is the case but if you pull the unit and take the cover off and 'turn the unit on' you might be able to determine this (for sure) and make an adjustment/fix on the spot.

4) lastly ... here is something I've done in the past. If you have the unit out of the window and the cover off - take a look at the fan motor and see if it's possible to take a drill and drill a very small hole on each side of the motor where the bearings are encased. (Note: drill the hole 'on top' of the encasement) - Then you take a oil can/plastic bottle and try to get some oil down on the bearings. This is a long shot (having a place to drill a hole) but if you can get some oil down on the bearings (remember you have bearings on both ends of the motor) it will extend the life of the motor possibly for years.

Like I said - I've done this (successfully) in the past. The big problem is that some motors don't have the 'built up encasement of the bearings' and so it's not possible to drill anywhere.

good luck!

Fan does not run. Fan inside unit does not turn. Wobbles when I touch it.

If you have play in the motor shaft when you try moving it from side to side or the fan blade will move side to side, then the bearings are worn out and the motor needs to be replaced.

Failure during operation

No. The fan setting simply runs the fan full time bypassing the thermostat. In cooling mode the unit is slave to the thermostatic sensor located in the return air stream. If the unit is in a very small room or the exiting cool air is obstructed by furniture or curtains then the cool air is directed directly back to the sensor before mixing with the room air, causing erratic operation. Be sure several square feet of floor space is open in front of the unit and point the vent upwards and see if that makes a difference. Hope this was somewhat helpful, GL.
