    Fan stopped working on all speeds. Motor simply hums and will not start blade turning. However, if fan is set on "high" and I give the blades a spin, they seem to get some assistance and keep moving for a long while.

    What do I need to do to fix?

    - thanx

The problem is NOT the motor. This is the most stereotypical, quintessential, textbook case of capacitor failure. The capacitor is a small rectangular black box located in the fan's switch housing (there may be one, two, or three capacitors) with colored wires coming out. The capacitor regulates voltages, and gives the fan enough torque to start, then keep running at the appropriate speed.

Capacitors are inexpensive to replace. Some replacements are available at your local Home Depot or Lowes; if they don't have the right one, go to Radio Shack. IT IS IMPERATIVE that the replacement capacitor you buy has the EXACT same values -- same voltage, and same microfarad rating (written as a number followed by the letters MFD, or the micro-sign and the letter F: µF). So, for example, it might say "277v 2.5µF" or "277v 2.5 MFD" -- and the replacement capacitor must have the exact same values. It must also have the same number of wires coming out of the top. However many capacitors your fan has, that is the number you need to replace, since you don't know which one is blown.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

Whats the reason that my Nissan NP200 overheat

your cooling system has many parts and can overheat for any number of reasons. your radiator could be clogged, the thermostat could have failed or not opened. the water is leaking and that is a whole problem to fix also. the fan or switch that controls the fan has stopped working. the relay that turns the fan on stopped working. could be a bad fuse. you could have something blocking the air into where the air goes to the radiator. so you see there is many issues that could be the problem. your first set is to check and see if you have enough liquid in the system after that if its full you need to check the fan and make sure it works and if not. then start there and may need to investigate more or replace bad parts. but replacing parts not knowing they are bad is a bad idea. most things can be tested and checked first. even a broken belt can stop the water pump turning and make it over heat. good luck

My rx8 been running hot. Fan stopped working. Do you think i need a new coolant fan or something.

There might be different reasons for a fan notto work.
- The fan's motor.
- The thermostat o temperature sensoore bad, so it's not sendin a signlal for hot
- The relay that controls fan's startup.

Now, honestly, my mechanical knoledge is not too briliant so I really couldn't find out the reason for the problem so when I have this kind of a problem I call my friendly mechanic and he solves my doubts.

I have a fan forced chef classic wall oven and the fan has stopped working....why ould this have happened/


There has several reasons the fan could have stopped working:
-It is possible the fan wiring/connections have become loose or unplugged
-It is possible that the fan motor has worn out or become jammed over time due to debris
-If you recently cleaned your oven, the fan could have stopped working if it came into contact with any caustic oven cleaner.

Hope this helps.

The gasket around my refrigerator is too hot to touch, what is wrong?

turn your frig off as soon as possible! this is an easy fix but if it goes to long it can cause permanent damage to the compressor and then you have a huge repair bill, or a big piece of trash :(

What has happened is this:

There is a fan called the condenser fan that blows air across the compressor to keep it cool. This fan has stopped working for some reason and now the compressor is VERY hot. When this happens it stops running and you get zero cold produced.

The reason the mullion is hot is because there is tubing connected to the compressor that is run through this area for condensation prevention purposes. When the condenser fan stops working, this tubing gets much hotter than normal, and that is what you are feeling.

So, replace the condenser fan motor before the compressor gets to hot that it damages itself! If I can be of further help please let me know, good luck friend!
