Question about Fedders X Chassis A3X05F2B Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Fan works for about ten minutes then begins to slow down

The fan works for about ten minutes on any speed, then begins to slow down until it stops. The compressor still works fine if its on. If its on fan mode it still does the same thing and when it stops, it makes a humming noise. There is nothing in the way of the fan to stop it or obstruct it from movement. This is the second one I have and both have and do the same. Please advise if the motor maybe going out is there a place that I can simply buy the motor????

Try spraying some WD-40 or similar on the motor shaft. There is probably some buildup of contaminents gumming up the bearings.

If I knew what country you lived in, I might be able to tell you where you can buy the motor if you need it.

Ac works fine when fan is on low but fan cuts off after a couple of minutes on high


Bad fan motor. Multi-speed motors have a set of windings for each speed. Your high speed is bad so the only solution is to replace the complete motor. When motors are going bad they will over heat and kick out on the heat safety. As it cools back down it will start again for a short time again until it gets hot again.

Installed the Altura 56" fan (56ATR), worked fine at all speed until we put on the light. Everything worked fine for about 10 minutes, then the fan stopped working, but the light stayed on. Kept trying...


both the fan and light have a common connection .. usually all the white wires are connected at one wire nut .. check to see if the fan wire has pulled out of the wire nut ... remove the wire nut and re-tighten it .. pull on each wire to make sure each one is secure ..make sure power is off before working on this ...

Fan noise-fan lags speeds up to normal then slows and will eventually stop. This occurs on fan only operation (high and low) and cool high and low.


The bearings,or bushings in the fan motor are gone out,the friction eventually slows,or stops the fan motor.

Blows cold but shuts down no freeze up


Check the capacitor. It should be a dual capacitor , runs both compressor and fan. This sounds like your problem only because both the compressor and the fan go out together. Good Luck Hope I helped

Compressor wont start


It is probably a failed run capacitor for the compressor. Without the capacitor, the motor can't even try to run, but it will draw extreamly high amperage until it trips the thermal overload (avarage trip time 5-10sec) after it has a few second for the safety to cool off, it will try again. Either that or the compressor truly is seized
