Fan won't start. I turn my thermostat down and the compressor kicks on, but the fan won't start and immediately get's hot. Is the fan motor burnt up, or is there another problem I should look for?

One of the first things to check if your condensing, or outside units fan wont come on, The capacitor, or the fan motor is usually the problem. Turn off the disconnect, open up your access panel and the capacitor looks like a silver cylinder, it may look bloated, or misfigured. If you see that. It is the capacitor. If it is normal, you can check your fan motor. If you have a multimeter, you can check the fan to see if its bad. Good luck

If the fan motor will not run, firstly, have the motor "capacitor "checked On many occasions, the cap had to be replaced and all was well.Worth your while to have the cap tested as the complete fan assy. is rather pricey.

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. The first thing to do is check the capacitor for the fan look at it and see if it is swollen or pitted. If the capacitor is okay then the fan motor may have gone bad.

SOURCE: Fan won't Start. I turn

It is possible that your fan motor is burnt up, but I would say about 75% of the time, its the capacitor. The capacitor is the round or oval component that is inside the electrical compartment. To check this visually, if its bubbled up at the top then its bad, if there are no signs visually, then you will need a multi-meter to check the mfds on the cap. If you have one that is available, set it to the mfd setting, pull the wires off of the capacitor, place your leads to two of the terminals, and read what your meter says. Compare it to the rating on the side of your capacitor. It should say something like 25mfd or 25/5%. They vary in sizes. If it's below 5 mfds than what its rated, it needs to be replaced. You can pick these up at a local A/C supply house without being licensed. You will need the information from the old one including the voltage. Best bet is to bring it with you though. The best way to check the fan motor is to try and turn the blades, if there is any resistance, than it needs to be replaced, but there are times when the motor can turn freely and still be burnt up. Just a few things to try out anyways. Make sure you disconnect all the electrical before doing any trouble-shooting and the capacitor stores electricity so ground out all the terminals on the capacitor as soon as possible. Hope this helps and good luck!

Ice machince is going max freeze cycle shut down


1. Possible cause. Water leak. Check purge valve, water curtain, sump, sump hose.
2. Air filters clogged. Clean air filters.
3. Dirty condenser. Clean condenser.
4. Restricted location, intake air to hot. Have machine moved.
5. Ice thickness sensor dirty or disconnected. Check ice thickness sensor probe.
6. Water distributor dirty. Remove and clean water distributor.
7. Inlet water valve leaks through during freeze cycle. Check water inlet valve.
8. Connected to hot water. Check for bleed through from missing check valve in building water supply.
9. Incomplete harvest. Check harvest system.
10.High pressure cut out opened. Check fan motor pressure control, check fan motor, check controller using test mode.
11. Fan motor pressure control open. Check fan pressure control.
12. Fan motor not turning. Check fan motor, check fan blade,check controller using test mode.
13.Water pump not pumping. Check pump motor,check controller using test mode.
14. Pump hose disconnected. Check hose.
15. Compressor not operating. check compressor contactor, check controller using test mode.
Check compressor start components, check PTCR resistance and temperature, check compressor voltage, check compressor windings.
16. Low refrigerant charge. Add some refrigerant and restart unit. If cycle time imporves, look for a leak.
17. Hot gas valve leaks through during freeze. Check hot gas valve for hot outlet during freeze.
18. Thermostatic expansion valve bulb loose. Check bulb.
19. Thermostatic expansion valve producing very low or high superheat. Check evaporator superheat, Change TXV if incorrect.
20. Compressor inefficent. Check compressor amp draw, if low and all else is correcy, change compressor.

Motor hums but won't kick in


Hi simpsonruth1..
In the back of the compressor motor you will see a fan, remove the plastic cover to get to it..
Once you have the plastic cover removed and the fan exposed, plug the compressor in and spin the fan with your fingers...be quick as the fan could cut your fingers if you do not get them out of the way..
If the compressor starts working, then the start capacitor is bad on the compressor...if it does not run then you have motor troubles, either replace the motor or get it rewound.
Please take time to rate me

Turn thermostat on, cooling fans kick in, i can feel compressor with my hand moving but no cooling inside freezer or fridg


Hi, you say the fan in the freezer kicks on? You also have a fan located by your compressor and coil which is the condenser fan motor and condenser coil. This fan must also be running when the compressor is on.Make sure that the coil down below is clean on the front of it as it draws air across this coil to keep the internal head pressures down. Check all of these things. The small copper line coming off the compressor, discharge line should be almost hot. The larger of the lines is the suction line and will be very cool, almost condensating . If not, you may have developed a small freon leak which will cause these problems. Make sure that everything I said is working and clean, and if the small motor in the rear bottom is not running, you can get a new one at a appliance parts house and 2 wires will replace it. Do all of this and keep me posted.

My goldstar turns on and hums, but no cold air. then it blows a circuit breaker


First you should check the power for short circuit, second you have to check the fan motor if it is burnt or not,third check whether the compressor is burnt or not.These are the three reasons.If the powering is short circuited change the cables from the mccb.If the fan motor is burned out replace the fan motor or rewind the fan motor.If the compressor is burnt out replace the compressor, evacuate the refrigeration system and charge the refrigerant.

Condenser fan running backwards on heat pump


I am having the same problem, sometimes it runs in the wrong direction, blowing the air down. Sometimes something gets tripped and I need to turn the thermostat to off and wait a bit then restart it. If I am lucky it will run int the correct direction and also will warm the house. Sometimes it send nothing but cold air to the house's forced air.

AC wont kick on....


The first thing to check is your breaker box. There should be one double breaker for the air handler unit, that's the inside unit, and one double breaker for the compressor, that's the outside unit. Check both breakers. If you're not sure if they've be thrown, click them toward the outside of the breaker box (off position) and then click them toward the inside of the breaker box (on position). If the breakers are on and you still are not getting any A/C take a look at your compressor, (outside unit). If the fan is running at least you're getting power. However, your compressor down inside the unit may not be getting power or it may need to be replaced. The compressor has a start-up cap. If this cap goes bad or the wires from this cap fry or corrode away, this will also keep the compressor from starting but the fan will still run. If the fan is not running it could be caused by a faulty relay inside the compressor cabinet. This relay is supposed to open and close based on a low voltage signal from the thermostat. I believe it's roughly 24 volts. This relay switches on and off the 240 volts for the compressor and the compressor fan. Often this relay goes bad or the wires leading up to it fry. If you?re going to work on the unit yourself make sure all power is shut off. There should be a shutoff switch on the outside wall near the compressor. I?d also shut the breakers off.

Fan motor slow on a/c


If it is making a continuous noise, and your air conditioner is still not cooling at all, there may be a serious problem with one or more of these areas:

  • Compressor
  • Condenser
  • Evaporator

  • OR

    This could the problem the with short circuit or defective component you need to check :
  • Compressor
  • Overload and/or relay
  • Thermostat (Open thermostat)
  • Burnt wiring
  • Bad selector switch
  • Capacitor

  • Good luck....

    Compressor starts and doesn't stop


    Relay for the compressor may be stuck ( Contacts welded) both the fan and the compressor should operate at the same time. Have the relay(s) checked and possibly replaced.
