If it is hooked up 220v single phase.... The electric motor for the fan can only turn in one direction.

Problem with GE PTAC-Model# AZ28E09DABM2 - Why won't condenser kick on when switching to AC from Fan. AC was working fine until today...Fan is still working...Pulled the unit out and could feel the h


Hummm. A bit difficult to solve this problem. Seems like the condenser outside is not working, I mean the fan of the condenser. Looks like you have a wall A/C and a wall A/C always have condensers outside the house and near the A/C. Have you checked if the fan is spinning? I don't think the compressor is at fault but check it anyway. You should be able to hear the compressor running either in the wall unit or in the outside condenser housing. The only heat you should feel is from the condenser itself. If you blows warm air, that means the fan is working, if not that means the fan is not working. But don't be confused with the fan not working because in winter time sometimes the fan is not working and some times it does. As I said, it's a difficult problem to solve but at least start with checking the situation with the fan in the condenser.

Condenser fan replaced one year ago, fan not turning but can hear motor


the answer to your problem is most likely the motor start capacitor. A AC motor can run in both directions. The start capacitor is used to cause the current to lag behined the voltage which determines the direction the motor will turn. Its posible the start and run capacitors are in one can. so changing one will change the other. However look for a wiring diagram. Do not asume that both capacitors are wired in properly. They may be fighting one another causeing premature failure.

Sub zero 736 condenser fan not running


You will need to remove the cover around the condenser fan motor then remove the screws holding it down to the base. Remove the wiring from the junction box and away you go. Do not run the unit without a working condenser fan motor, you run the chance of causing yourself many other problems. With a new fan motor the unit should run fine unless there is waxing in the cap tube from overheating. Good luck

GE AEH10AMG1 was working fine a week ago. Plugged it into the same socket yesterday, and the breaker in the plug popped, and it keeps popping when we try to plug in the unit.


You have a direct short in the A/C unit probably at the compressor or your condenser fan motor. You can disconnect one component at a time to identify where it is shorting. turn power off unwire condenser fan motor secure wires so they dont touch anything plug unit in if it still pops breaker your compressor is probably bad.

Hi Sandy and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Usually refrigerators use the condenser plumbing to create heat around the door gaskets. If your getting heat on the door gaskets that means that the condenser fan in the back is either not running or.... the condenser coils are clogged with lint. The fan should be running anytime the compressor is running. Since you said it is starting to trip the breaker.. I am assuming there may be a problem with the condenser fan being stuck or the windings have failed. Without a model number I can not pass you replacement fan parts information. I will say that the average person can change the condenser fan if they just take their time and pay attention to how it is mounted.

Remove the rear lower fiberboard cover:
Check the condenser fan... clean the condenser coils in the bottom rear of the unit. You can..... use and external fan directed into the back of the refrigerator while your awaiting parts to keep the unit going. All your doing is getting rid of the heat that the condenser fan would have done if it was working properly.

If directing a fan at the back of unit does not cause ther temperature around the door gaskets to drop your original assumption of having heating elements between the doors may be correct. Usually units that have actual heaters have an enrgery saver switch in the fresh food compartment that will turn off the heaters.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Thanks for your detailed information. But solution is very simple. The compressor contactor in out door unit. Struck. And hence, when you power on, without indoor commanding, the out door starts running.

Replace same type Contactor relay (In out door unit) immediately. Hope, it's helpful.

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.
