Check your circuit breaker for the indoor fan. If that is ok try turning the indoor fan by hand to see if it rotates freely. If it doesn't it probably needs to be replaced. If that's ok then check the capacitor for the indoor fan. It is probably attached to the fan. You can check it with a multimeter with the capacitor check function or take it to a heating and air supply and they can check it. Also check the fan motor windings. Connect one lead of an ohmmeter to the common leg and the other to the start leg. Check the reading remove the lead from the start leg and connect it to the run leg and see what it reads. Common to start should be higher than common to run. If either indicates an open winding then the motor needs to be replace. Some motors have more than one speed. High speed is usually used for A/C.

The unit after running for ten minutes blows hot air inside the house

Service your unit completely and then check the following. 1. Thermostat setting must be minimum +3 degree from your temp. 2. Check room temp sensor 3. Check your out door unit fan motor. (If the outdoor fan runs with less rpm the compressor will get cut off by overload protector)

My carrier air conditioning unit will not cut on, nor will the fan outside on the top of the unit, but the fan inside will.

Check the breaker for 220v or tripped.

You have a bad fan booard or fan relay. Get service tech to change. Some things you cant do yourself. To many fan boards are out there. Fan relays are pretty common. Goodman units have a fan sequencer. Carrier Brynats and and others have fan boards. get a quote befor you commit. That way you know how much it will cost. Rus
