How can you tell if the capister is blown. I put a used fan in and everything ran fine for a couple minutes, then everything quit and I smelled a slight burning smell. The lights still came on.

Steam coming out from under the hood near the fan?


Did the vehicle overheat? Steam is indicative of overpressure. This could be caused from a stuck thermostat or a blown head gasket. Do this with vehicle all the way cool take the radiator cap off. Start it and if any blows out of the radiator the head gasket is blown . If nothing comes out and it's full stick your finger in the fluid. If it gets where it's too hot to touch in a couple of minutes , that also indicates a blown head gasket as exhaust gasses escape into the coolant.

Hi, I have an older mobil home with a Colman AC


Your unit uses both the capacitor and a contactor (relay) to start your compressor and motor. With the indications you are giving it would either be the capacitor or the contactor - and since you have already changed the cap - then replace the contractor!

NOTE: We always recommend that you change the capacitor and relay at the same time, because they seem to fail at about the same time.

Took our 2001 Caravan SE to local mechanic because rear wiper quit working. They diagosed proble as faulty PCM. Thought they were doing us a favour by putting in a used one from a 2002 that they thought...


i dont see why they would diag the pcm for the rear wiper, power from fuse to switch to wiper!! no pcm in between this operation. I would have had this fixed in a hour. Have mechanic pay for the bill to get it running. It was running fine when you took it there and only the rear wiper didnt work and now you are out of a vehicle and a tow bill at a hourly dealer cost. Best of luck to you 300.00 later.

Sounds like the fan motor has failed altogether, and as a result the oven element has probably blown again due to overheating of the element.A ew fan and element is more than likely going to be needed to correct the problem.

Strong ozone-like burning smell


Sounds to me like the motherboard inside the unit is on it's way to thermal overload. This is a common problem with this particular model. You'll smell electronics burning and one day it'll quit altogether with a burst of smoke. I had this happen to me and I traced the problem back to a faulty triac (transistor-like device) that overheated and caused the circuit board and wiring harness to burn up from excessive current draw. I repaired my motherboard with a new triac ($6) and rewired the harnesses. A cooling fan on the heatsink of the board would solve this problem.
