The AC makes a humming sound when starting the fan. If I spin it by hand it runs. Model 620315.321 serial 90716722.


The humming sound is the motor trying to start, if you turn it by hand, usually they will run. it sounds like the motor for fan needs cleaning and oiling. God-Bless ya all!

The fan on the inside ac unit wont come on is there a reset button


One of the common problems in air conditioners is fan motor bearings going bad and the fan motor shaft is locked up stalling the motor or preventing rotation. Another cause of fan motors not running could be the motor start capacitor. The capacitor is needed to give the motor a jump start to get it rotating. If you can get access to the fan squirrel cage and can spin the fan ok, the motor bearings are then good. Most likely the problem then is a bad motor start capacitor that can be replaced. In very rare cases the motor winding itself could be bad and the fan motor will need replacement. regards, Dennis

Why would a torpedo heater fan turn backwards? every time I start my all pro 115,000 heater the fan starts to spin counterclockwise and the heater wont ignite. But when manually spin the fan blade clo


If the fan has a 'run' capacitor, in rare cases, a faulty capacitor will cause a single phase motor to start in reverse. In most cases a faulty capacitor will cause the motor to only hummmm and not start or start slowly running the right direction then overheat and shut off.

See if there is a capacitor, change it first. If that doesn't fix it it sounds like its time for a new motor.

Why baumatic rangehood BABT83.2AL stop working


Remove the filters and see if you can see the fan blade. Try turning the fan blade by hand. If its jammed up or tight, you may need a new motor. If it spins freely, turn on the rangehood and give the fan blade a spin . BE CAREFULL when doing this, if the motor starts up and runs properly after spinning it, it could be the start capacitor has failed. If it still wont run or if the fan is tight, you may need a new motor. Spare Parts should be available. You will have to trawl the internet looking for Baumatic parts suppliers in your area.

Dometic duo-therm rooftop ac unit motor wont spin unless i jiggle the wires that go into the motor then it works! Trailer sat in a monsooon storm last night. next morning compressor kicks on just fine and...


If you have to jiggle the wires going into the compressor motor to get it going, I would submit that you may very well have a broken wire or otherwise loose connection that is making contact when you jiggle the wires. If all appropriate connections were good, jiggling the wires would/should have no effect. I assume you are jiggling wires AT THE MOTOR input and not elsewhere in the circuitry. After you jiggle the wires and get it started, does it continue to run? or if not, describe more thoroughly what is happening..

Evaporator fan motor wont start


WR60X10220 is the part number to the evap. fan motor if your complete model number is this STS22ICPBRWW, which you can verify by locating the label on the machine somewhere and on a label you actual model with serial number will be listed. The Fan motors start winding has gone out on it and when you spin it you're taking the place of it giving the run winding a chance to kick in. This part should run anywhere from $20 to $30 bucks.

Squeaky noise from the motorafter running for


I would unplug the fan and clean off the motor shaft behind the fan and vaccum the motor housing and around the motor ends.

Once you've got as much dust and grime as possible removed, use some 3-in-1 oil and LIGHTLY oil each end of the motor shaft (behind the fan and next to the motor housing) and if possible, at the other end of the motor housing.

Make sure the fan is UNPLUGGED when you do this!!! Give the fan a slow spin by hand and hold upright to allow the oil to seep down the shaft into the bearings.

I usually do this once or twice a year on my portable fans and unless the bearing isn't completely worn out, it usually helps the fan spin more easily and keeps it running very well.

Hope you find this very helpful and best regards!

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

Condencer unit fan wont run


If you have power to the fan and the fan won't come on, then its bad. You don't have to do another check. You will know if the capacitor is bad by turning the power on to the unit and taking a stick to start the fan. If the fan starts running after manually spinning, then the cap is bad. If not, the motor is bad.
