It is a strong possibility. Use some oil on the motor.Our AC unit is on - 34a4ac9.jpgIt might be the contactorace24b7.jpg
Before he goes messing with anything inside the unit he needs to kill the power. It may be the capacitor, look for a swollen cap45d0615.jpg

Outside unit will only run for a short amount of time with A/C before the fan stops turning and starts humming, squealing/screeching and the top of the outside unit gets hot.


The bearings are bad in the motor and after the fan runs enough it eventually gets hot, making the bearing screech and the fan locks up. Need to replace motor again. See if it has a warranty. The reason it gets hot is because the fan is what removes the heat from the coil and if the fan isn't running there is nothing to cool it off so to speak.

Ac compressor will not start


Hello, sounds like a faulty capacitor. Check the capacitor to see if it is puffed up at the terminals. It will be located inside the outside unit and looks like like a can that is oval or round.

I had my a/c charged today because it has not been cooling the house down. It took less than a pound, but it still blows worm air. Fan and compressor all running. I cleaned outside unit, filters, replaced...


It could be that it is not charged correctly. Check the insulated copper
line outside if it is sweating and the condensor is discharging hot air, then the ac is doing all that it can. Check the evaporator inside to see
if the drain has condensate coming out of it.

Getting the heat out of the attic is a good idea, but you must have enough make-up air in the attic for the fan. If you do not have enough
make up air, it will start to draw air from inside the house. One way to check this is if you have a gas water heater and or furnace. If you put
a flame by the exhaust pipe in the basement and it blows it out, then you now have a backdraft problem.

Run the AC withoutthe fan, my real guess is the unit is not properly
charged or you do not have a big enough AC unit.

Ac fan on, blowing air, but not cold


Check outside unit if unit and compressor are running feel the large line to see if it is cold. If compressor is running and line is not cold possible charge problems. You may have a capacitor problem outside. they go out quite often. You can change this yourself, Open up outside unit and the cap is the silver bullet with terminals out the top. Bad cap can cause compressor to not operate and also the fan. You need to clean the coil inside or at leat check the coil to see if it is clean. You can clean theis with a toilet brush do not go against the coil bit brush with the fins. You may need to call a service tech but try these options first. russ

House HVAC Not Blowing


If the outside unit is running and the inside unit is not, probably a problem with the fan motor itself or its capacitor. If you have to have someone repair or replace the fan $200-$250 with parts, a capacitor for a service call and part $100 or so. Check it yourself first to see if there is anything obvious broken wire, hot connection, etc if you feel safe doing that. Turn the power off first. There is also a chance the thermostat could be the problem. Have you tried running the fan on the thermostat "fan on" setting?

Goodman air conditioner will not turn on outside


When ever you hear a buzzing like you are hearing means one thing one of the fuses on the outside disconnect box is bad. Only getting 1/2 the power. Find the bad fuse and get the same size and will be good to go. ken

Fan not turning outside


Is the outside compressor running? Check the fuses in the outside disconnect by the outside condensing unit. Also check the breaker for the A/C in the main power panel.

Central ac blowing hot air outside fan not moving but making a noise


This is nothing but an either or -or ! First, make the thermostat calls for cool, there are suppose to be 2- noise outside, the fan motor and the compressor (and if a old system,a humming noise which is the contactor coil which picks up the main 240-volts).. hurry up and take a stick or something and turn the fan blades, if it picks up speed and run, then its the capicator. If not then the fan motor is bad.! (BOTTOM LINE)!
