Initially fan in indoor unit was surging,cutting in and out,now has stopped completely and red/green flash twice followed by red flashing 4 times


The flashing indicates a fault code. Not knowing what make / model you have makes it impossible to determine the exact fault. If the indoor fan was running erratically, it may just be a fan capacitor on the indoor unit. Some units have a separate capacitor, some have the capacitor mounted on the main indoor control board. Check and see if the fan starts if you give it a flick to start it spinning when you turn the air con on. If it runs and the error flash does not appear, then you will know its a fan capacitor.

Air conditioner fan is blowing but not air coming


If you mean that your OUTDOOR AIR CONDITIONER FAN MOTOR is blowing AND no air is coming out of the vents within your house, it clearly indicates to me that 1 of 2 things are wrong.

Either (1) your INDOOR AIR HANDLER is NOT running or (2) the INDOOR AIR HANDLER is running but your PLENUM has come apart.

If your INDOOR AIR HANDLER UNIT is NOT running, it could simply be the circuit breaker is OFF/TRIPPED and simply needs to be turned OFF; then turned ON. If that does not FIX your problem, then it is most likely your 5 micro-farad run capacitor for your indoor fan motor needs to be replaced. It will prevent your indoor fan motor from energizing. Worst case scenario would be your INDOOR FAN MOTOR has windings burnt and needs to be replaced. If your indoor air handling unit is equipped with a CONDENSATE VALVE CUT-OFF SWITCH, check to see if your drain pan is filled, thus energizing the switch. If the CONDENSATE VALVE CUT-OFF SWITCH is ENERGIZED, it will prevent the AIR HANDLER FROM energizing. That is the design and the reason for this valve.

Good luck.

Ruud UAKA-030JAZ fan spins, not blowing cold air


there are 3 things to be considered,first,if the compressor motor `s connectors are having loose,it gives a hi ampere to your RELAY that can cause to its contacts being fried,second,the compressor motor itself is gaining a hi ampere already i.e. having unusual sound that can cause heavy friction inside the turning mechanism and third the last but not the least,maybe this time,the tubes or the compressor itself having very small holes that causes to the refrigerant to escape and it doesn`t gives off cold air.

F6 error code on Frigidaire split unit ac, model FSC12CM6J/FSE12CM6J. Solution says to check fuse? Where is this located?


It seems like the indoor fan is not running. Quite a few split systems have a fuse on the indoor board. It will require stripping off the outer cover of the indoor unit and removal of the electronic box cover. The indoor board is in there. The fuse may be replaceable or it may be a type that is soldered on which makes it virtually non replaceable. ( A new indoor board will be required) Make sure all power is turned off or disconnected before you do anything. Another possibility is the fan motor start capacitor has failed. Try this first before stripping the unit. When the unit is turned on and the outdoor unit has started, give the indoor fan barrel a flick with your finger to start it spinning, if it keeps spinning and the error doesn't appear, it would indicate that the fan motor start capacitor has failed. The capacitors on indoor units are normally small black square boxes with 2 terminals on it. These capacitors are mounted inside or close to where the indoor electronic box is. Again, make sure all power is disconnected or turned off at the meter box before you do any disassembly.

Check the air filter and if it is dirty, replace..
Turn equipment off and let the ice melt.
After ice melts, place a/c in cooling mode and set the thermostat to 3 degrees below room temp display.

The indoor unit fan should start blowing cold air immediately and then turn off once the room temp drops one degree below the cooling temp setting.
If the indoor unit does cycle off, check the outdoor unit and make sure it turns off at the same time.
If the outdoor unit continues to run and the indoor fan is not running, the indoor unit will ice up.
A defective compressor relay that is stuck in a closed position will cause icing of the indoor unit because it keeps the compressor running when it should turn off with the indoor fan.

Do you have an error code being displayed on the controller?
Is there an led light that is flashing on the indoor unit?

Another possibility causing the indoor unit to ice up is if the freon in the system starts to get low.
Make sure the ice has all melted for this next check.
Pretty easy to check without special tools.
If the air filter is clean and there is no dust/ dirt blocking the fins on the indoor unit, turn a/c back on to cool and check that the indoor unit fan comes on and is blowing air good.
Once everything seems to running good go to the outdoor unit.
There will be two lines with black rubber insulation covering them.
Peel back the insulation three inches on each line and observe the copper lines.
If either line starts to frost up the a/c system is most likely low on refrigerant.


Another cause of indoor unit icing could be that the aluminum fins behind the air filter are clogged with dust or other foreign material.
This would block the air that must be pulled in causing the indoor unit coil to become too cold due to lack of air flow and it will ice up.

Operating the cooling system when the outdoor temperature is below 60 degrees can cause the indoor unit to ice up also.

Nordyne E2EB-017HA air handler blower won't turn on unless I hit the housing. I can turn the fan easily by hand.


Very carefully give the blower wheel a spin and see if the thing takes off and spins. If so, you need to replace the capacitor on the indoor blower. It gives it the "boost" it needs to get going

My window air conditioner of 12 years turns on but does not blow air. What do you think the problem is?


Fan barrel not turning. Could be a failed start capacitor or tight fan. With the unit turned "OFF", see if you can freely spin the fan. If so, turn the unit on and give the fan a spin. If the fan starts to run, then it will be a start capacitor.

No air blows out vents how do i fix?


Sounds like the indoor fan isn't running.First go to the thermostat and take the fan switch from auto to on. If there are no problems with the fan it should run. Next check your circuit breakers. If they are on, then turn off the power to the indoor unit and spin the fan by hand to make sure it spins freely. If it doesn't then you probably need a new fan motor. Next check the capacitor for the fan. They are usually attached to the fan on indoor units. If the capacitor looks swollen then it is bad or you can check it with a multimeter. If everything mentioned is good and the fan still isn't running, check to see if the fan is connected to a circuit board. If it is, set the thermostat to make the air come on and check for power where the fan is connected to the circuit board. Let me know what you find if the fan still isn't running.

Fuses were replaced first. Fan on airconditioning unit won't keep


It sounds like the run capacitor of your condensor fan failed. When it fails, it can prevent your fan from starting unless you manually spin it to get it going, then it could run for awhile before it overheats.

Outside compressor fan won't spin without a nudge


Hi,

either you can lubricate it by spraying wd40 on the bushings. Although usually fan motors are permanently lubricated there are still dust particles that get through and cause it not to spin.
