Frigidaire AC window unit, model fam185r2a (18,500 BTU) only cools for a few minutes before it cycles off and just fan blows. Then a few min later cool air cycles back on. Is this a thermostat issue?


The window units normally have a sensor thats attached to the front of the indoor coil. This controls the thermostat. I usually pull this sensor away from the coil because it stops cooling before the room is cool. It is attached to the cold coil so it senses the coil temp, not the room temp. You can normally see it when you remove the air filter. Don't break it! It may be a wire or small copper tube

How do you check a fan motor






You need to check the volts at the motor while it's running, to make sure some safety is not shutting it off. Then check the amps on the motor while it's running. Also you need to check your capacitor and wiring.

Air handler fan cuts on runs a few minutes and then cuts although thermostat is set to off.


your thermostat could be wired in to a energy recovery venilator which will bring the unit on for a certain amount of time every hour some thermostats have recirculate mode which will do the same thing to help filter the air

Goodman gmh95. The fan runs, cuts out, starts, cuts out as it nears set temperature.


If that's a variable speed motor(?), I've seen them do some strange things. Not that scenario that you have though. If it's under a parts warranty, have your tech start changing some things out, motor, control board to start with. It appears that your thermostat may be loosing contact? I know he bypassed it but how? And was the bypass for a few minutes or so? Or that you're issue seems to occur after 5-15 mins of operation, and that just happens to be a long enough run time to closely reach the set temp. at the thermostat. And that getting close has nothing to do with it, but the 15 mins of runtime is a better description. So have your tech over, warn them it may take 2 hrs, and pay him to hang around a catch it acting up. And set your tstat to allow it to get cold inside so it will run a lot when he gets there. Also, when it acts up, turn your fans' AUTO/ON switch to on, and see if it qits acting up. Not sure what that will answer but it may help you tech, depending on how it's wired. Hope this helps!

My outside unit runs a little while then shuts off.


More likely the out door fan motor has bad bearings and that would cause the out door unit to run for 15 to 20 min but it could be low on freon
when the out door unit runs after 3 to 5 min the larger of the two copper lines going into the unit should be ice cold

If the thermostat you just installed has a time delay that will keep the indoor blower motor running for up to 5 min after the unit shuts off

Fan cutting on and off every 5 mins


The only thing that is going to but the fan off is the thermostat. When the fan stops, immediately check the thermostat on the wall. See is there is power between the B terminal and the GH terminal. If none, then replace the thermostat. If there is, then replace the control board in the AC. That means that the fan relay on the printed circuit board is weak.

Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan stops spinning after 15 mins


Capacitor, dirty condencer coil causing the motor amps to run too high. But most likely worn bearing on blade side of motor causing it to pull to one side causing it to over heat and shut down. Sleve bearings should have no side play.

Refrigerator operates properly for a few days then stops working


When you said it stopped working, do you mean it is not working at all? or is it not cold enough? If not working at all, that will be thermostat, when you change the thermostat, did you adjust the small switches to match you unit and make sure wires are connected properly, If not, it would work properly. If not cold enough, check and make sure the condenser fan motor and compressor are running, if both are running but not cooling then you have sealed system problem.

Oven cooling fan keeps on spinning


Sounds like you have a oven probe or (if equipped) computer issue. From the looks of it, you dont have a computer on this model, so you probably have a thermostat stuck somewhere in there. The thermostat closes at the set temp, then opens when the unit cools. Sounds like this one is stuck in the closed position, allowing the fan to run all the time. You will have to look and see if you have a wiring diagram on the back of the unit, then find the fan wires and see which thermostat controls it. If no diagram, follow the wires out of the fan and see if on runs to a thermostat. Good luck and let me know if you need further info.
