I would deffinatly change the Capacitor. They are normally a dual run type. One terminal runs the fan motor, the other runs HERM or compressor & C terminal is the common for both. Capacitor can be either round or oval if space permits, but make sure the UF numbers & VAC numbers are the same. You can if you must go higher on the VAC number, but not lower. But is best to get exact values. Fan motors with oiled clean moving shaft that hum are either burnt out capacitor or fan motor winding is bad if capacitor change does not work. Avg cap. price is Aprox $16-$20.00.

SOURCE: FAN MOTOR

The run capacitor is probably bad. The run capacitor is usually a two part component. One part serves the fan and one part serves the compressor. Sometimes when they fail the fan will even run backwards instead of just stalling. Replace it.

Outdoor unit hums but fan doesn't turn. Nothing heats up but the fan just won't turn and is there a spot to oil the fan on the motor


The fan motor on the outside unit should be a sealed motor. If the unit is just humming is the humming from the compressor or from the motor being locked up. You could try spinning it a few times with the power off to see if this might get it to run and spray some penetrating oil under the fan blade right where the shaft comes out to the fan blade.

Turn AC on and only get a hum, no Fan. Repair


It does not make sense they overlooked it. It does make sense the fan motor is bad.
A fan motor must have a new capacitor. I would ask for a labor adjustment on the original repair.

When we push the on button, you can hear a hum,


Sounds like the belt that turns the drum has broken. the hum sound is the motor turning. Does it still get hot in the drum? If so then you need a replacement belt ($15-$25).You can open the rear or the dryer to confirm the belt is broken. Be sure to unplug from the wall outlet to avoid electrical shock.

Ac unit is humming fan is not turning


hi there,
defective fan motor,this means stuck up motor the running winding is functioning but it can't star to drive your motor so the current inside motor produce vibration that why it create humming, several causes to be consider, bearing are worn out,defective fan capacitor, the fan is obstructed by object.there is no supply on starting capacitor,check if there fan relay overload protection reset it on control panel,
also,if humming is came from compressor,definitely because
fan is to reject heat,if no fan compressor will hum due to refrigferant in the system is not flowing,on high side,have this check by a/c technician nearewst on you.have a nice day dont fforget to rate me ,thank's

Hampton Bay 36" Fan Hums but won't turn


The motor has gotten tired now after being on 24/7. With the blades off, it would turn easily but the weight of the blades strain the motor. You could check that there is proper 110 volt current to the motor because anything less will cause that problem too. You can also help the fan start by spinning the blades while it is on. Short of these suggestions, it is time for a new fan.
