It sounds like your compressor start capacitor is to blame ..to get to it the front plastic cover needs to be removed ..remove the control panel to see the capacitor ..its round or ovel /silver/ an wires hook to the top of it ..look to see if the top is bulging or leaking fluid ..this helps the compressor /fan /start ..let me know.. an good luck../joe/

SOURCE: My air conditioner doesn't blow out any air.

If this is a central air unit & you\'re talking about the fan on the outide of the house the problem may be that you are only getting 110 volts to the system side of the contactor. If you have the tools & know how you can check this yourself. If not, time to call a repairman.

If the fan blows cold air the compressor is already on.

SOURCE: lennox air conditioner is blowing hot air

Check your coils for ice, check your breaker and fuses for condensing unit, and is your condensing fan running? If not, you either have a bad fan motor or capicitor. After you hit the button, and wait for it to time out, (you should hear a click) take a butter knife, and spin the fan if it is not moving. If the fan start spinning by itself after your assistance, you have a bad capacitor

SOURCE: Danby DAC5020 Air Conditioner fan works but not compressor

It could be as simple as being low on refrigerant. Depends on how expensive the unit is if its worth recharging and how big the unit is. Some small units will need to have a recharge point fitted which cost more of course.

I think, your compressor gets over heated due to condenser block-clean it. Less rpm fan speed. -Replace capacitor. 3.Check compressor running capacitor. If weak replace it. Helpful?

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?

My problem is the fan never goes off runs 24-7 and you can hear the compressor kick in from time to time. Is something wrong or do they all do that for a roof top unit? Any help on this one?

Sounds like 1 of 3. Blower motor capacitor, relay or thermostat. Try to run fan only if that is an option and see.
