If you remove the outside panel you will be able to see the blower carefully try to spin it if it starts after that you know its the fan motor or the dual run capacitor which looks like a giant battery most times they are silver

I have a airwell GC-30RCC when put on heat the fan on the indoor unit wont kick in it works fine on cooling and plain fan mode but not on heat mode the red fan light is on too


How do you get it to kick in ?.Fid you spin it by hand ,if that's what you did and fan runs then you have a bad capicator. If fan runs fine in cooling and not in heat then you have a bad board

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.

Heat Pump - blows heat to set temp, then off, then kicks on to blow cold


Heat pumps defrost which is the AC mode, if the heat strip isnt working during a defrost, the air will be cold, A heat pump only feels warm if the heat strips are on too! the refrigeration cycles heat output is much less sensible to our 98F skin. heat pumps that satisfy a room setpoint are working at least, all heat pumps feel drafty to most.

Fan won't run / won't cool


It may have a faulty compressor relay or overload, best to change both at the same time. It's either that or a bad compressor.

Our frigidaire window a/c unit (model faa067p7a) does not seem to be operating properly. There is no condensate forming anywhere (beneath the coils is dry and no evidence of water and there is no water...


It sounds like your unit is low on freon or the compressor is not kicking in. If the compressor kicks in you can hear it turn the unit on fan only or turn the thermostat off then turn the unit to demand cool you should hear a hum even vibration when the unit kicks in. If there is no audible hum ect... your compressor is probably not kicking in. The selector switch the temp switch the capacitor for the compressor or the compressor its self could be bad. good luck if you need to know how to test any of the above let us know

I have my dometic Rooftop ac unit. The heatstrip/fan run perfectly but when I turn on the ac...the fan runs good but when the compressor kicks on it just hums.


The compressor coming on does make a slight "humming" sound which is normal. Is the unit cooling properly? Do you think it is louder than before?

Cooling not cold


Hi, This is called a split system heat-pump. If it was cooling and stopped and cooled again and now stopped, you need to be sure the outdoor unit is working properly. You can only check certain things as they require special gauges and know how. Make sure the condenser fan is on and reach down where the 2 copper lines are when it is on. Grab hold of the large line which is the suction side and it should be cold enough to condensate. The smaller is the liquid line and should be warm in the cooling mode.If not, listen to see if you can hear the compressor running inside of it. Should hear a humming sound. You can carefully remove the control panel door and feel it to see, but BE CAREFUL! Don't get your hand in the fan blade. Do these checks and get back to me when you do and we can go from there.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Air on heat pump not cool outside unit humming but not kicking on


This could be an inoperative condenser fan.System will kick off on high pressure without proper air flow.The hum indicates voltage is present. Providing the fan motor is not locked up and will spin,Check your run capacitor which helps boost the motor voltage initially and will get it turning.If the cap is good,you may be faced with motor replacement....good luck

Air conditioner fan will not come on and unit will run for 1 minute and stop


You hear the compressor kick in (Hum) but no fan comes on? Will the fan come on when just in fan mode, not cool, or do you have that set-up?

Hums and freezes up????


The fan motor must have been stopping. If the fan stops, for sure the fins will freeze because there is no air flowing. common Fan motor problems defective bearing or bushing and starting condenser. If the bearing is defective, it will heat up and seize. Have the fan motor checked. The fact that the fins are freezing, means that there is enough freon and the compressor is working.
