Question about Heating & Cooling
I came home from a weekend away to a hot house. I have a digital thermostat and it read 90 inside! I turned it off when I realized that it was blowing hot air. This am I went outside to look at the unit and it is making a noise like it is running, but the fan is not moving. I really don't want to get ripped off. Could you please give me some advice or at least give me questions to ask a technician so I don't sound like a walking bank.
This is nothing but an either or -or ! First, make the thermostat calls for cool, there are suppose to be 2- noise outside, the fan motor and the compressor (and if a old system,a humming noise which is the contactor coil which picks up the main 240-volts).. hurry up and take a stick or something and turn the fan blades, if it picks up speed and run, then its the capicator. If not then the fan motor is bad.! (BOTTOM LINE)!

The most common cause of this issue would be a capaciter failure. I have 3 ac units and had an AC company come out to fix a similar issue and it cost me nearly three hundred bucks! I watched the tech fix the unit and figured I could do it myself with some guidance the next time. This year when another one of my capaciters went out I found a repair kit online with pictured instructions in a guide and phone/email support and saved over two hundred bucks on the capaciter replacement this time! The site I bought the repair kit from is hvacrepairkits.com - good luck!
