Check the indoor fan motor by this method switch on the unit check whether the motor is running or not if not than simply move the blower clock wise direction if it start moving than replace the capacitor.

I hear compressor come on but fan doesn't come on. I only hear a short buzz then stops, but compressor still running.


I had this happen to my A/C unit and electricians couldn't figure it out. A hard slap on the ceiling, next to the unit that has the control circuit got it going again. I never found the weak or bad connection but it still works after 2 years. My guess is there was some oxidation at some connection point or relay that make good again.
Try it and good luck with the Fonzy trick.

My True beer cool stopped cooling last night what should I do ?


That is a broad question. Lets do a checklist. When you plug the unit in the compressor behind the grill on the front should come on and the fan in front of the compressor should come on. The radiator in the compressor compartment needs to be clean from all dust and grease. Many times this is overlooked and can cause real problems by letting the compressor overheat. Now look inside and find the fan cover. It hangs from the inside top of the cooler. It should also be running. If either fan is not running the unit will not cool. Sometimes there is an obstruction, such as someone pushing a six pack up against the fan cover and pushing it into the fan. The fan down by the compressor is sometimes blocked by the cardboard shroud that is built around the fan. Also in a few cases rodents have gotten caught in that fan. If everything is running, you will have to look deeper into the compressor compartment. There is a screw in the front of the radiator that hold the compressor unit in the cooler. Unplug the unit from the wall. Remove that screw and slowly and carefully pull the compressor unit towards the front of the beer box. It will slide almost all the way out. You will see a coil of copper tubing at the back of the compressor that allows enough slack in the lines to slide this unit out. When you push this unit back in it helps to have someone behind the cooler to pull back on that coil as you push the unit back into the machine so it does not get crimped. With the compressor unit pulled out, plug it back in at the wall. If your compressor is running and you have proper amount of refrigerant, the small copper tube from the compressor to the radiator will get very hot, enough to burn your finger, after two or three minutes. After 10 minutes the larger copper line that is usually enclosed in a rubber sheathing should get cold. One way to know if you have a burned out compressor is to listen to the compressor and fans when you first plug into the power outlet. A bad compressor will usually try to start for 2 or 3 seconds and then click out. While it is trying to start the fan will slow down because the compressor is pulling way too many amps and is pulling power away from the fan until it clicks out again. If you can hear the compressor come on and run but it makes no heat to the radiator, you probably have a refrigerant leak. Your freon is gone or almost gone. If it was a slow leak you would usually notice that the cooler does not seem to cool like it once did. If it was working good and suddenly stopped cooling, the most likely problem is a bad compressor. Changing a compressor is usually beyond the average do it yourselfer because it requires welding the unit in place and gauges and a supply of refrigerant which is almost impossible to get without a liscense. Let me know what you find out.

My outside unit wont start. the inside fan is running but just blowing normal air, not cold?


check you contact on your outside unit, the relay may have gone bad. In the corner remove four screws, and the cover should come off it may have a fifth in the middle. It is a black square, T1 T2 T3 and L1 L2 L3 , it has a relay in between. Make sure you have you voltage coming in(line the L's), if you don't then somewhere around the unit is a box check and make sure the fuse/breaker is good. If you have power, with an insulated screwdriver or you finger push the contact in, the compressor and fan should run. Now if the relay is engage then it is more then likely the fan motor or capacitor. Hoped this helped tim

It sounds like you have a bad fan capacitor.
You might try replacing it, they don't cost very much.

The outside unit is not working on my Heil Air conditioner


The attic fan is not a part of your a/c system, and you should not run it while you are running the a/c. If you are currently using the attic fan, it is possible that someone wired it so that the a/c won't turn on while the attic fan is on. Otherwise if the thermostat is set below room temp, and says it is calling for cool, then the problem is most likely coming from an issue at the outside unit itself. Make sure to check your fuses, at the fuse panel and outside breaker. Hope this helps

FYI.. the only part of the system that might use batteries is the thermostat.

Unit will not come on at all has voltage to unit and to contactor?


Sounds like you lost the refrigerant charge. Low pressure switch will not let compressor run. Look for oil around the condenser tubes. If you find it, this is probably the leak source.

I have a programmable thermostat. The LED reads Replace batteries. The face plate has fan switch, a system switch, two arrow keys that are separated by three little function (set, hold, and run). HELP!!...


There is a base plate that is screwed to the wall. The face of the thermostat should come off from the base. Usually the batteries can be found back there. Some times a little tug will get it off the wall. Other models have small plastic release clasps that when pushed in will allow the unit to come off.

Ice maker grinding sound


I found I get a odd clicking noise whenever the icecubes freeze inside of the box in the top left. You'll see about 20 little fingers, arms, or whatever you want to call them that spit out the ice into the container...make sure those fingers/arms arent stuck from the ice.
