Question about Heating & Cooling

Blower fan keeps shutting on/off,

I have a central air unit (goodman, 4years old) the blower fan keeps shutting off and on, however the condensor unit outside stays on? Could it be the thermostat, if so why is the outside unit still running? Or bad blower fan? or something sending the signal to shut on and off? The house is cooling, the outside pipe is cold too? Please any help???!!!
Thank you

    having the same problem, but when I put the fan in the on switch, it is still turning on & off.

    My air conditioning unit runs, however, the fan in the furnace is not blowing the air through the ducts. It doesn't seem to be running when I test it by turning the heat on either. Advice?



    I have never conducted any preventative maintenance on my air conditioner. Oops.

Try putting your fan in the on not auto position and see if your outdoor condensing unit cycles on and off. If it does you might have a defective time delay relay to blower. If not your contactor might be stuck or your thermostat could be defective.

Your blower fan turning on and off shows your thermostat is working. I am willing to bet you have the fan in the automatic condition. Check for a sticking contactor at the outside unit.

I have a goodman ar24-1 blower motor that will not start. I have changed the capacitor, checked the thermostat, spun the blower motor but still will not start. Outside unit runs but no blower. Any ideas?...


Check the relay or sequencer that controls the blower if it has one of those. If the fan is controlled by a circuit board then you problem may be there. If it is controlled by a circuit board then you can check for power at the fan connection when the fan is supposed to be on. Then there is always the possibility that you blower motor is burned out. You can use and ohmmeter to check the motor windings. You said you checked the thermostat, how did you do that? If you install a jumper between the R and G connections the fan should run if everything else is OK.

You may have a bad capacitor. But you may nee a service tech to check it out. There is only so far you can go without knowledge of Air Conditioning. Ask for free estimate and you will know upfront what the cost is . RUS
