Have someone turn the thermostat to fan on. stand by the air handler. listen for a click. There is a fan relay or a stack switch both click when power is sent to them .
If you do hear a click that is good. should be good part.
No click means the relay or stack switch may be bad.
also look at the capicator. it's a little silver oblong or round component with 2 wires to treminals on the end. These wires are usually brown. The top of the capicator where the wires attach should be flat. if it is a little rounded the cap is bad.
If the cap is good and the relay is good.
SECURE POWER to the Air Handler. At the breakers
touch the side of the motor. BE CAREFUL it could burn.
touch lightly... if real hot motor is more than likely bad.
The Motor has the specks on the side of it. and can be read after the motor is removed.
Two screws must be removed to remove motor.
If you must disconnect wires to remove. write down where they connect and there colors Before disconnecting.
Good luck

Indoor fan will not stop


Seems like the fan relay has stuck (Likely to be on the main indoor PC board) or if the machine was being used on heating mode, the indoor pipe sensor may have failed causing the fan to continue to run. Most air cons on heating mode, will keep the fan running for a few minutes after you switch off on heating mode to cool down the indoor unit before it turns off completely. The pipe sensor signals the main PC board to tell it that the unit has cooled down and can now turn off completely. If either of the above faults occur, the indoor fan will keep running all the time.

Goodman package heatpump blower motor contant running


check your themostat fan mode switch to see if it in on or auto. It should be in auto. If this does not stop indoor fan motor, (it may take up to 2 minutes for the fan to stop, preprogrammed shutoff in the thermostat and fan control cards may make you think the fan has not stopped ) If this does not stop the fan the fan control board in your air handler has a green wire shorting to 24 volt signal in the theromostat wire or the contact on the blower control card is stuck and will need replaced.

My Rheem central a/c blower fan starts by itself when the t-stat is off and the fan set to auto. It seems to happen more in rainy weather. It does stop eventually then starts again. It's not the t


Sounds like the fan relay is getting voltage bleedover from the 24 volt wire. Could be the thermostat also but most likely there is a bare spot on the wire going from the fan relay to the terminal marked "G" on your thermostat that is touching the wire that goes to the terminal "R". Easiest way to fix this is to run new T-Stat wire from thermostat to the indoor unit or the blower motor if it is a package unit, making sure that the "R" and "G" wires have good insulation on them and are not touching. If you have an 8-wire T-stat wire you can sub out the wires marked "R" and "G" with different color wires that are not being used, just pay attention to how they hook up and you will not have to pull a new wire through the wall. Good luck!

Inside motor not running and will not run on just fan. cage turns easily by hand


If the out door unit is running without the indoor fan running, you could possibly have a motor burned out or your indoor unit.
If nothing is running, check to make sure all panels are on inside, and that you have electricity to the indoor unit. Some air handlers and furnaces are equipped with a safety switch on the access door to the motor assembly. Also , there may be a switch that looks like a light switch beside the indoor unit.

Once again, check and see if the outdoor unit is running. It will eventually freeze up without the indoor fan. Hope this helps. Please email me if you have any more questions , I will try to step you through. Mark

Indoor fan blowing cold air when on heating


The indoor fan will continue to run. When heat pump goes into defrost the outdoor fan stops, the reversing valve switches and the unit is basically working in the cooling mode. In order for you not to feel a blast of cold air in the winter the electric strip heat also comes on so the indoor fan must run while the strip heaters are on.

My indoor blower is not working it blinks 8 times


This alarm state is a CH08 alarm. Which indicates that the indoor unit fan motor has a locked rotor. Solution is to check the indoor fan capacitor and replace or test the windings of the indoor fan motor. Note: the indoor fan motor is a BLDC fan motor and can not be replaced with any other motor. It runs of a voltage regulated frequency.

Lg split indoor fan runs non stop


Hello Hamid,
The unit is designed to run the indoor fanmotors continuously when in cooling mode on both indoor units (evaporators). The reason is that this circulates the air and the temperature thermistor or sensor is able to sense return air temperature and in turn start or stop the outdoor unit and compressor as required according to the setpoint temperature. The reason for either unit not reaching setpoint temperature can be a couple of reasons. A) Incorrect design - the unit may be too small for the application. You can calculate this roughly at 650BTU per square meter of room in a relatively warm ambient climate. Or secondly B) The outdoor unit has leaked and is short of refrigerant. You can check this when the outdoor unit is running by feeling the thicker copper tube on the right hand side of the unit. This should be cool to cold. If no temperature difference is felt, it is short of refrigerant. Hope this helps you. Goodbye

Turn off unit supply and check the blower wheel inside the indoor unit by rotating it manually by your finger if the blower wheel rotates freely then there is something wrong with your fan motor or fan motor capacitor. But if the blower wheel is not rotating freely try to check the fan motor for lubrication or some bushing dried of and no oil
