Not a lot of information to go on. Something is causing to motor to work too hard causing it to overheat. Possibly the fan is dirty or clogged resulting in poor airflow. Has the motor been replaced recently? If that's the case I would suggest that the new motor is of an incorrect HP rating or speed rating.

Has it ever worked? What kind of AC is it? (make and model please).

Is there a reset button after allowing to cool down


There may be a reset for the Power nozzle motor. The tank does not have a reset. Did the whole machine or just eh tank shut down? What caused it to over heat, do you know?

My shur-dri model sd-100-01 well pump will run for a while and then shut off but will restart after an hour or so. What's wrong?


It is a heat sink in the motor. Most all electric motors come with it. Once it cools down, they work again. The heat sink keeps them from burning up.

If it shuts off after being used for a whirl and won't come back on for a while it is probably overheating. The heat sensor shuts the machine off and won't let it turn back on until it cools down. If this is the issue it could be the filters are clogged and not allowing enough airflow to keep the motor cool. Most bag less vacuum filters should be replaced frequently even if they are cleaned regularly.

Unit comes on and shut off correctly but dosen't heat and cool home equally. Blows cold air in winter and doesn't cool home properly in summer.


Toget proper heat, keep your temp setting at 30+ degree and also mode in "heat"position. If still no heat, check your heating sensor for closed circuit by anOHMs metre.It it's with RV, check power to RV.If it's with heatingelement check power to element. If power is there but still no heat meanselement defective. Replace new heating element. Thanks. To get proper cool, keep the tips as follows:
1. Check air filter is cleaned. 2. Check indoor coil is cleaned. 3. Checkindoor blower motor is working. 4. Keep in cool mode. 5. Set temp minimum 3degrees less than room temp.6.Check compressor is working with correctpressure.
Thanks. Helpful?

Dryer heats up buts keeps shutting off?


It could be the blower air velocity if not then you have a bad winding in the motor.Motor gets hot and shuts off and then comes back on
after it cools. Also it could very well be the vent crushed by the dryer.

Heat would not come on and fan would not cut off even when thermostat was set to off. Took off the outside panel of the unit and red light was blinking 7 times - rollout switch fault. Since fan would not...


this means that the rollout switch was tripped by a flame coming from burners. could be a plugged fue or bad inducer motor, or a bad rollout switch. the fan will not shut off as a safety feature it keeps running incase the heat exchanger is to hot to keep a fire from starting. it will shut off after disconnecting power and restarting everything. watch the flames from burner when it lights to see if the actually roolout of the burner box toward the rollout sensor.

Gas dryer get hot but than goes cold


This sounds like a problem with your fan motor. The dryer is getting too hot and the gas is shutting off until it cools down. That fan keeps the dryer cool by moving the heat to the clothes in the drum.
You can easily check this by feeling for air flow in front of the exhaust vent outside. No air movement = fan problem = heat shut off in 10 minutes. Good luck

Freezer not freezing, and the panel between the fridge and the freezer gets very hot


The condensor fan motor is probably not running. The condensor fan keeps the compresor cooled, if the compresor gets to hot, it shuts down until it cools off and tuns back on, but will not keep temp. Heat exchange lines go in the panel between the doors to serve as a heater so the doors dont freeze shut, but when the compresor overheats, so do those lines. That would be why that panel gets so hot. Both problems will be resolved with a new condensor fan motor ( located by the compresor).

My washer will start get about 5min into cycle then quit and come back on at a later time. does anyone know what could be causing this . it is a roper


sounds like an overheating problem with the motor. Does the washer sit on carpeted floor or lenolium/hrd floor? The motors of today are thermally protected, so when they overheat they stop till they cool down enough to turn themselves back on. You should have at about one inch clearance under the washer so air can flow underneath to help keep motor cool. If the clearance is not the reason then I still think your motor is overheating. When it shuts off can you try another cycle to see if it's not in the timer? If you get no response then I would say for sure you have excessive heat of the motor.

Air handler only blows air for 3-5 minutes before shut off & not cycling frequently


Sounds like it could be a very weak run capacitor on the blower motor. Run capacitors are sized specifically to the needs of the motor. When a run cap gets weak, the motor trys to compensate for it by drawing more power. More power draw = more heat in the motor, then the motor will overheat and shut off to protect itself. When the motor cools off it will automatically restart and run until it overheats again. Keep in mind that I am a technician that normally diagnoses equipment in a hands on manner. There are many practices and concepts that transcend all air conditioning systems but it is a constantly evolving industry. I live in south eastern WA and I don't see Amana units except as window units. It is possible to have something else causing this problem (faulty thermostat, failing thermal relay(if used), problem with electronic controls(if used)) there are a lot of potential variables
