    On the outside unit (not the air handler) there is a block of ice formed around the cable wiring that comes from the back of the unit. Is this normal?

Check the filter, could be dirty
dirty coil.
You can check the fitler yourself, otherwise I recommend you call for service

I hope that helps

Hello bobhomedecor,

Every air conditioner is equipped with at least two motors, the compressor and the fan motor.



1. It is possible for the fan motor to be defective and the compressor to be running. If this is the case the unit will appear to be running and may even sound "normal" but no air is blowing out the front or back of the unit.



2. If, after removing the cover of the unit you discover the fan blade is very stiff and difficult to rotate, the fan motor should be replaced.



3. If the fan blade turns freely the circuit powering the fan motor will require electrical troubleshooting. It will be necessary to have a qualified technician locate the cause of the problem, which may be either a problem with the capacitor, the selector switch or the motor itself.

In any case, this looks like a job for a qualified technician, so my honest opinion is that you should get the machine serviced.


Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.
If it hasn’t, please do not assign a rating just yet. Please post back as to what steps you took, results, etc, and I will try to assist you further as best I can. I am here at your service.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Cheers!

Unplug it for a while, if the problem persists the motor might be bad.

most likely repairs required. You didn't give any info about your device so I cant direct you anywhere at this point.

Not heating. The fan blows, but no warm air. RHEEM RCGA-60A1AS24


Please check if the compressor is running, if not, then
there is no warm air generated. Please contact the RHEEM dealer about it. Aircon compressors are run
with a thermostat. So, you may try setting the aircon
thermostat to maximum, so that the compressor run,
and you can have your warm air. May this info help you.
