Some times heat pumps have a fan cycling switch to keep the head pressure normal in cool weather or check the defrost relay for the fan when a heat pump condenser gets frosted it will stop the fan and reverse into cooling mode for a few min. to melt the ice and this function is done by a relay or a printed circuit board if it goes bad you wont have voltage to the fan

Intertherm MGHA-070ABFC-05 will not run/cool


Multiple problems. Eliminate thermostat first. Remove face from wall and turn on breaker. If fan still runs you have a bad board or bad relay. If fan outside is running compressor should be too. These operate on same contactor. Verify you are getting 24 volts to coil side of contactor. If odf stops working and contactor remains pulled in you have a bad motor. If odf motor stops working the compressor will shut off due to overheating.

Have an intertherm split system. Outside condenser compressor is starting, can hear freon flowing, but fan motor will not kick in. Gets hot then kicks breaker. Have replaced capacitor with factory part.


If that system is gas heat then you have 2 fan speeds Lo speed for heat and when ac is called for the motor speed shifts to hi with the use of a fan relay.
Some various fan relays in use today. themobilian_2285.jpgthemobilian_2286.jpg

Outside fan runs slow on my janitrol heatpump


If it has service ports on each side of the motor you need to add Zoomspout oil to the cotton wells.0942d92.jpg Check the capacitor if you have a seperate cap for the fan motor. Look for swelling that is a sure sign of cap failure.c51cc2e.jpgKill power at the outside unit before checking anything. 2550ebd.gif

Fan not working on outside AC unit


The buzzing noise is probably the fan motor. Is the compressor running? First make sure that there are no tripped breakers. After that kill the power and check the capacitor with a multimeter. If that checks good then check the fan motor windings with the multimeter. Let me know if you have any questions.

Where is the capacitor located on a coleman heatpump


If you're talking about the outside fan, look where the wire goes into the outside unit. The capacitor will be somewhere near the circuit board and will be round or oval and metal or plastic. If you're talking about the inside unit it will be with the electrical control in the air handler. Write down where the wires go. The terminals on the capacitor will be marked and for the outside unit you will either have 1 that runs both the fan and compressor or a seperate one for each. If you have 1 that runs both the wires must be reconnected to the right terminals. They will be marked COM, FAN, HERM(stands for compressor). Take the old one with you to get a new one. Let me know what you find.

I have a Intertherm heat Pump. Everything turns on inside the house. Blows warm air and the outside Fan wont turn on. Both the outside copper pipes are same temp, neither hot nor cold. Don't know the modle...


If the fan outside doesn't work the compresor will overheat and shut off by the thermal protection inside the compressor , to fixed this you have to replace the fan motor and its capacitor.

WONT COOL OUTSIDE UNIT DOES NOT COME ON FAN BLOWS INSIDE


if the fan outside is turning on and inside fan is blowing too, then you have a compressor problem. could be a capacitor gone bad (or needing a hard start kit) to the entire compressor failure

Fan on outside unit will not start on its own.


Either your fan motor or capacitor is bad. The capacitor provides the motor with a phase imbalance to start it spinning. If it is shutting off this is because the motor is over amping and getting hot. You can try replacing just the capacitor to see if this corrects the problem but most likely the motor is bad by this point. When you replace the motor, replace the capacitor as well!!!
