Possible that the motor has failed and it has developed a leak to the body which seems to be felt over the machine, Isolate the motor and test the external voltage presence.. if absent it can be related to the motor.

Rheem air conditioner fan not working outside

with the unit off: use a stick or something safe to try to move the fan blades to be sure the motor is not seized. If it spins freely :turn the unit on and use stick to give the fan motor a "boost". if it takes off and runs you have a bad fan capacitor which is the most common cause of your problem

Carrier model 38txa024300 ,condesor fan wont oporate with compressor unless the fan is spun befor energizing . is it the dual run capacitor that is bad? thanks for any help. jeff

If the fan spin freely then the capacitor could be bad. Otherwise, if it spin with difficulty then it need to be cleaned and lubbed.

the one on the engine is probably a viscous type fan.It spins freely until the heat causes it to 'stiffen' up and assist in drawing heat off the radiator.Prior to this it is not needed and would only rob engine power and slightly affect fuel economy.Easy way to check if it is viscous,with engine off,just spin the blades.It should spin with a little resistance onlyThe electric fan on the radiator is switched on by a temp sensor or by using the air cond(unless it has another for this task).Hope this helps you.

Fuses were replaced first. Fan on airconditioning unit won't keep

It sounds like the run capacitor of your condensor fan failed. When it fails, it can prevent your fan from starting unless you manually spin it to get it going, then it could run for awhile before it overheats.

The Inside of my oven wont get hot the light comes on but it doesnt get warm

If this is a fan over then check to see if the fan is spinning. If it is not spinning then the fan bearing has got tight. This is easily fixed by using a thin piece of wood, like a chop stick to give it a flick and get it moving.

Works a treat every time it happens to me.

If it's not a fan oven then you probably need to get the elements checked out.

1998 Pontiac Grand Prix fans only work when air conditioner is on

The fan clutch is probably worn out. With the engine warmed up but NOT RUNNING...see if you can sin the fan. Grab a blade and try to spin it.
If it freewheels, it's shot. Should be a slight resistance.....
Replace if nec.

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.

AC unit wong start unless I spin the blower

you have 2 windings that are in you motor,One winding is the start winding It give the motor its initial boost that gets the fan spinning.The other winding is the run winding and it takes over and keeps the fan running.So it sounds like the motor is bad because the start winding is not giving the boost it needs to start. good luck--Nate
