Weather king central air conditioner

Sometimes the outside unit, the fan will stop spinning and you can feel the fan motor getting hot and have to shut it off. other times, it seems to be working fine and suddenly realize it is no blowing out cold air anymore. have tried using the reset button, will work fine for a day or so. the unit is only 2 1/2 years old.
do i need a new fan motor, or could it be something else?

You have done a good job under the circumstances. It could be a bad start/run capacitor as well. It carries a lot of amperage so I suggest hiring a technician to check the capacitor and the motor.

We have a weather king central air unit mod# WAKA-030JAZ. ser#5339 mo6959417. volts 208/230. compressor rla 13 5/13.5. outdoor fan motor f.l.a.9. mfd 02/05. hertz 60. l.r.a.76. hp1/6 min supply...


I would bet the outside units contactor is bad. This is the device where the two thermostat wire connect outside. If this is pulling in/out as you turn the stat on/off then it is working. I just fixed one yesterday with the same symptoms and found the start capacitors were bad. If they are bulged at the top or bottom then they are bad. Good luck.

The outside unit is running, but the inside air handler unit does not work? The blower is not working, but you can hear a clicking noise.


turn the power off to the indoor unit and see if you can spin the fan by hand. the bearings may be locked in the motor. if so you need to replace your blower motor. let me know what you find out

My central air never kicks off


Sounds like you need to recharge it .. To tell while the unit is running go outsiode and feel the large insulated copper line going to the unit it should be cold to point od sweating like a can of coke you take out of the refrigerator and sit on the counter. also feel the air coming out of the unit outside it should be warmer than the outside air if not your freon is low

Central unit freezeup when on


If you are running the unit in the A/C mode with the fan in the automatic position it could be the cause of the freezing of the coil. Try operating it with the fan in the on position and see if the problem goes away. When in the automatic operation the fan shuts off when the cooling unit shuts off and air circulation stops. Hence no defrosting of the cooling cycle in the off cycle. In the evenings when the outside temperature drops after sundown the pressures in the system drop in proportion dropping the temperature of the cooling coil sometimes causing ice formation on the cooling coil.

Buzzing and then no cold air


You need a service tech to check out your system. Your compressor may not be starting which could be the reason for the humming noise and no cold air. Dead snake may not be related to your problem.

Fan not blowing


Even when the power is off at the unit outside the thermostat will supply power to the contactor of the outside unit. This may give a hum or buzz as you stated. If when the power is on to the outside unit the fan tries to start but only hums the motor may be bad. Does the compressor start and run?
