Call the salesman to send over a tech to do a warranty service call. This could be a defective fan, or the thermo start sensor.

Unit does not cool. Original unit was replaced because of defective compressor. Replacement unit worked in store but now does not cool and alternates blowing cool and warm air.


Is this a window unit? Sounds like the compressor may be cutting on and off. That would cause the alternating air temp you are feeling. Make sure the condenser fan is running. If it isn't running head pressure will build up on the compressor until it shuts down. Then the pressure will equalize and the compressor will kick on again. Also check your filters and the condenser coil to make sure it is clean. Let me know what you find.

Condenser Fan stops turning.


If you have a amp meter you could measure the amount of current the fan is drawing and compare that reading with the amperage value printed on the fan motor.
More information is needed:
Is the compressor running?
How old is the unit?
What brand and size?
Are you getting a 240v where the fan connect to the power terminals?

I have a frigidaire window air conditioning unit, model FAM187S2A, and the condenser doesn't seem to be kicking on.


Check the motor for power. The condenser only has the compressor and the fan as its moving parts. Check if there is power running to it or you may just have the fan that is not working. In checking see if there is a correct freon pressure, power cables or relay for the compressor are all ok or there are leaks in the system. You may want to have it cleaned while at it.

A/C UNIT FANS BLOWS NO COLD AIR COMPRESSOR KICKS ON THEN OFF


check fins in the condenser coils (the fins on the outside part) for obstructions or alot of bent fins. should be free and clear. but chances are the freon level is low. can be serviced, but may be cheaper to replace.

Condenser fan operation is sporadic


Check the fan relay. It sounds like it is weak and not staying latched. This could definitely cause your problem. Also, check the voltage to the relay to make sure it is correct.

Hope this helps,

Is the condenser fan (outside) turning? You mention that it's hot but don't say if it's turning or not.

These fan motors normally run pretty hot, but not so much that they shut down due to internal thermal overload protectors.

Both the compressor and the fan have termperature overload protectors to keep them from burning out the motor in the event of an overheated condition. The condenser fan must be running or high freon pressure will put an excessive load on the compressor and it will 'kick out' the high-temp overload protector.

Turn off the unit by pulling the outside disconnect (in a small box near the outside compressor unit) or flip the AC breakers in the breaker box. Wait about 30 minutes for the unit to cool off and turn it back on. If the compressor and fan both run for awhile then kick back off, or the fan motor seems to be working under excessive strain, you've probably got a bad motor start condenser (inside the unit) that little round can that is connected through the fan motor wiring. If it's swollen or leaking, it's almost surely defective and even if it's not, excessive load on the motor is a classic sign of a bad start condenser.

You can usually find these at electrical supply stores, well-stocked hardware stores, or most certainly at an HVAC parts house. Be sure to replace the old one with one of the EXACT same value (in voltage and Microfarads (mF) capacity. The shape may be a little different, but as long as the electrical characteristics are the same and is rated at the same or higher voltage than the original, it will work.

Connect the new condenser, mount it to the frame, and restart the unit. This should take care of the problem.

Hope this helps.

C6 error code on LG art cool


Try turning the power off at the fuse box, waiting 5 minutes turning the system back on and spray some water on the vents on the side of the outside condenser. If the fan isnt spining get a twig and spin it in an anti-clockwise direction after 1 or 2 spins it should start spinning on its own. continue to hose the vents with water for another 5 minutes. Its important to have the fan spinning as it extracts the heat from the condenser box.

Condensor?


It probably shut off on high pressure. Let it cool down, plug your hole that you drilled and give it another try. The water is suppose to collect there and the fan is suppose to throw it into the condenser to keep it cooler and make it run more efficiently. Good Luck,
