FAN IS NOT WORKING ON MY CARRIER UNIT

Two days ago, the fan stoped working. I don't smell anything, when I placed my hands on the unit, I can feel there is some electricity sensation and sometimes I can hear some noise for 2 secs.
I spoke to a friend and he said it may de the condensation system. Unit is from 2004, does it have still warranty on it?

    Blower fan is not working but compressor is. Increased the temperature setting to stop the compressor. I took the panel off the furnace/blower unit and nothing seems amiss other than some mold after 9 years service. There is a low hum although the power is off too the unit.

Hi,
It sounds like it is the run capacitor on the fan motor is defective.
Typically when this fails, the motor will buzz, and get hot - without rotating. When it gets too warm, the temperature cut-out will shut it off untill it cools down.

Try replacing this with one of a similar value or a genuine part.

I don't think it is under warranty after this time.

Condenser fan replaced one year ago, fan not turning but can hear motor


the answer to your problem is most likely the motor start capacitor. A AC motor can run in both directions. The start capacitor is used to cause the current to lag behined the voltage which determines the direction the motor will turn. Its posible the start and run capacitors are in one can. so changing one will change the other. However look for a wiring diagram. Do not asume that both capacitors are wired in properly. They may be fighting one another causeing premature failure.

When the unit is turned on, for the first 15 minutes or so, there is a distinct stale mouldy smell. I suspect dust collected on the unit coils is being wet by condensensation and it smells as the first air...


You can check the cause of that smell if you have the tools to open the unit. The first test is to place a piece of paper in front of the evaporator and start the fan. If the paper is **** or stays in front of the evaporator, you have a clean evaporator. If it is not ****, you need to open and clean the unit. The blower may be filled with dust and molds. It is best to find someone who knows how to work and clean your a/c unit

Did you smell anything in the house right after the pipe noise in the wall? Could have been your refrigerant line bursting and now there is no refrigerant in the system to transfer the heat and give you cool air.

Window A/c 10 or 15 days is good working\r\nbefore !0 or 15 days ago all Eveporater and section line freeze fan moter good praper work melt the freeze and A/C on A/C giving good cooling what is problem


Hello
You may try cleaning the evaporator filter,Also cleaning the outside coil or condensor,Simple green works good for cleaning coils and a garden hose.

Also cleaning the evaporator may help.
When unit is running properly the evaporator should feel cool and wet from top to bottom.
Last,the unit could be low on freon.

My Carrier Home AC unit stopped blowing cold air today. I opened it up and cleaned everything and didn't notice anything out of place, any ideas?


This could be complicated to resolve over the internet but I'll give it a try. When you stated that it stoped blowing cold air, did it stop blowing air all together? Also is the outside unit rtunning?

Outside unit won't turn on. I can hear the power


Could be anything from a bad contactor to a blown capacitor. Fan motor might have failed causing the compressor to quit in overload (MORE)

Air con runs for 5 mins then stops, unit outside still going


ok depending on what part of the world your in and the season . Winter: most split systems are designed around a set given temperature of operation , if this is a heating problem the what you are experiencing is the system going into deforest . bare in mind that those carrier splits are manufactured in china and are designed for about 35 deg C in summer and +5 in winter , anything out of this temp range will cause this , especially if it is running on freon 22 , in-which case it sounds like its short of gas to me . if its a new R410 a system , then check your filters and if they are clean and its still doing the same then it too is short , in each case a refrigeration mechanic is required.
