The fan on the inside ac unit wont come on is there a reset button


One of the common problems in air conditioners is fan motor bearings going bad and the fan motor shaft is locked up stalling the motor or preventing rotation. Another cause of fan motors not running could be the motor start capacitor. The capacitor is needed to give the motor a jump start to get it rotating. If you can get access to the fan squirrel cage and can spin the fan ok, the motor bearings are then good. Most likely the problem then is a bad motor start capacitor that can be replaced. In very rare cases the motor winding itself could be bad and the fan motor will need replacement. regards, Dennis

Outside unit fan does not kick on just hums and you can hear a clicking like a breaker kicking on and off.


thats a bad starting capacitor .. the capacitor is a metal rounded box about 3 inch x2 inch .. it has wires going into the fan and into the compressor .. its usually mounted near or on the compressor ... there are usually 2 capacitors in one container ..one for the compressor and one for the fan .. if the capacitor is bad then the fan and/or the compressor will just buzz but wont start .. the motor will get hot until a thermal breaker shuts off the power .. then when it cools it will turn back on and try again ... if you allow this to continue it can damage things ... the capacitors don't cost much .. you can remove your old one safely as long as power is turned off at the circuit breakers for the AC ... note where the wires go .. usually they have "pull off" connectors that are different sizes so you cant mix them up .. take the old capacitor with you to an air conditioning parts house . or get your AC make and model number and contact the manufacturer for a replacement capacitor.. you can also take all the numbers off the capacitor and order a replacement off the internet .. replace the capacitor and it should fire right up ... if you call a service man .. tell him that you suspect the starting capacitor .. that way he will bring a selection with him or he might have them with him anyhow but if he knows your make and model number then he can bring an exact replacement .. ..

My maytag refrigerator started making a buzzing noise every time it goes on. it lasts about 5 seconds then clicks off. any idea what it is?


I have the same problem. It is ice buildup around the evaporator fan that begins as a buzzing (the fan blades hitting the advancing "glacier"), which ultimately stops the fan and then the freezer/fridge stop cooling. Just pull the lower sheet metal from the inside rear of the freezer (need to remove some screws from upper sheet also) and chip the ice away. I've got a question in to Maytag now to see how to prevent this from recurring. I've had to take the thing apart 3 times in 2 years.

Ac fan not turning on I can ''stick start it'' but which direction?


The condensor fan should be sucking air from the top and blowing it through the coils, probably a counter clockwise direction. The buzzing/humming sound is confusing to me. A humming sound sounds like a motor that can not turn over to start. A starting capacity would be needed. Just because you changed it out last year does not mean it is good. A buzzing sound sounds like a contactor problem. Contactors buzz and after a while, they will fail. In any case, you can "stick start" the condensor fan PROVIDED you are sure the ac compressor is working (this is for a short and temporary use). Also, you may have a high load duty capacitor that assists in the unit running. This will affect your condensor fan operation if it is not good. Unless you know all the components and operations of ac electrical, I would highly recommend calling out a professional.

Outside fan does not kick on just buzzes


The buzzing noise sounds like the contactor is energizing and if it is then you need to check to see if you have power 230 volts to the outdoor unit, if not, check the fuses or breaker, if you do have power then you may have a broken or burnt wire inside the outdoor unit.
