Sounds like it could be a very weak run capacitor on the blower motor. Run capacitors are sized specifically to the needs of the motor. When a run cap gets weak, the motor trys to compensate for it by drawing more power. More power draw = more heat in the motor, then the motor will overheat and shut off to protect itself. When the motor cools off it will automatically restart and run until it overheats again. Keep in mind that I am a technician that normally diagnoses equipment in a hands on manner. There are many practices and concepts that transcend all air conditioning systems but it is a constantly evolving industry. I live in south eastern WA and I don't see Amana units except as window units. It is possible to have something else causing this problem (faulty thermostat, failing thermal relay(if used), problem with electronic controls(if used)) there are a lot of potential variables

most of the time its out by the ac unit . you have a shorting thermostat wire .. the outside unit has a large wire thats 240v and a small one that 24v thats the one you want to look at . look for bare wires , look where it goes into the wall , thats the common place . "critters" love to chew thermostat wire . so take a look . .....please rate this answer , i need votes . thanks

sounds like you have airflow issues, the static pressure is such that the siphon action of the trap cannot overcome the static pressure caused by the blower, have you put a new high efficiency filter in the system? It is very rare to have to install a trap in a central unit... if the compressor is operating, a quick check for charge is the suction line, (the large copper line outside) will generally be cold and wet, you should also feel hot air discharging from the unit outside.

Check outside unit if unit and compressor are running feel the large line to see if it is cold. If compressor is running and line is not cold possible charge problems. You may have a capacitor problem outside. they go out quite often. You can change this yourself, Open up outside unit and the cap is the silver bullet with terminals out the top. Bad cap can cause compressor to not operate and also the fan. You need to clean the coil inside or at leat check the coil to see if it is clean. You can clean theis with a toilet brush do not go against the coil bit brush with the fins. You may need to call a service tech but try these options first. russ

Sounds like your compressor in your heat pump is siezed . You can try a "Hard Start" Capacitor...which basically gives your compressor a kickstart and works 95% of the time when compressors get older....It's hooked up in parallel with the existing Capacitor...if you're not familiar with Electrical etc I would call an expert and mention what I said . If this doesn't work you will likely need a new Compressor/Unit . You could also have a short to ground in the heat pump side....likely the compressor is the problem however the original Capacitor could also be the problem
