It sounds like the internal overload on the fan motor is being tripped by a buildup of heat in the motor I would recommend that you clean the the coils on the unit and oil the fan motor by removing the oil plugs along the perimeter of each end of the motor (if its a serviceable motor).
P.S. If you spray of the inside of the unit be sure its disconnected form power of course, but also take care to not get water in the blower motor and if theres a chance you have allow time for it to dry before you attempt to start the unit. GL, hope this was useful.

    Hehe srry still waking up here, : ) you need to use a high grade oil such as sewing machine oil- 20 drops in each end and remember to replace the oil plugs.

Ac works fine when fan is on low but fan cuts off after a couple of minutes on high


Bad fan motor. Multi-speed motors have a set of windings for each speed. Your high speed is bad so the only solution is to replace the complete motor. When motors are going bad they will over heat and kick out on the heat safety. As it cools back down it will start again for a short time again until it gets hot again.

Why did SPT Portable Air Conditioner stopped blowing cold air?


Unit needs to be taken apart and washed out , also check to see if motor turns freely by hand , clean base of unit fans / blowers and drain ports / channels . Check outdoor motor to see if bearings are tight or fan overheats and cuts off if so replace outdoor motor .

Outside fan keeps stopping, I replaced the capacitor it ran a couple hours and stopped


The bearing is possibly to blame. run the unit and wait for it to stop and then try to bump the fan. if the fan moves quietly and easily, im wrong. I would bet this is to blame so you must replace the motor/bearings.

Could be lack of service. The unit depends on a clean evaporator and condenser coil. The "other" motor you hear is the compressor starting or stopping probably due to either a high pressure or low pressure switch, or thermal cut-out.

RV air conditioner. Compressor running, fan stops before cool


The fan motor is getting hot and going off on the internal overload in the motor.
This is caused by either a low voltage, a bad capacitor, or tight or dry bearings in the motor.
To check the bearings turn the power off to the unit, then spin the fan blade if it spins freely then the bearings are ok.
To check the capacitor you will need some kind of tester or you can buy a capacitor and replace it, that's what a lot of people do. They usually don't cost very much.
To check the voltage you will need a voltmeter and measure the volts at the unit.

Samsung Ac compressor stops after 20 minutes and fan keep running. Again after 10-15 minutes if ac is restarted the cooling happens for 20 minutes and compressor stops.


eventually,cycling process is doing done if the thermostat sense the configure temperayure set up it will trigger to stop your compressor motor as well as the blower fan,blower fan independenly to you compressor.if your thingking that your compressor is tripping off,check your operating current on one line using clamp ammeter and compare to the rated current that tag on
motor compressor body,if the current flow is higher than the rated current specified on compressor motor,well problem occured it will trip your compressor,because overload protector is becoming your thermostat.but if you got same current result it was cycling process.If tripping off maybe air is present in your system call qualified ac tech, to purge out air in system.

Outside Fan Problems


TRY CHANGING THE CAP FIRST BUT MOST UNITS ONLY USE THE CAP TO START THE MOTOR NOT TO KEEP IT RUNNING SO IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A BAD CAP AND THATS WHY IT DOESNT START HOWEVER IF IT STOPS RUNNING WITHOUT THE THERMOSTAT TELLING IT TO (OR IN THE MIDDLE OF A CYCLE) THEN YOUR RUN WINDING IN YOUR MOTOR IS GOING BAD YOU CAN REPLACE THIS MOTOR PRETTY EASY AND IF YOU USE AN AFTER MARKET INSTEAD OF AN OEM MOTOR YOU CAN SAVE YOURSELF ALOT OF MONEY. PS BE CAREFULL WHEN CHANGING YOUR CAP BECAUSE EVEN WITH THE POWER OFF IT CAN SHOCK YOU.AFTER SHUTTING THE POWER OFF USE AN INSULATED SCREWDRIVER AND TOUCH IT ACROSS THE POLES AT THE TOP OF THE CAP TO GROUND IT AND REMOVE POTENTIAL ENERGY.

GE Central A/C Unit about 30 yrs old; condenser fan stops after a short time.


I gather that it is the outdoor fan motor that runs a bit then stops.

Fan motors that stop by themselves are overheating and going into self-protect. The fact that you replaced the motor and capacitor opens up a whole world of "which wire is in the wrong place". I could do this if I could see it, but I can't see it. You're probably going to wind up calling a service man to sort out the wiring.
