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.

Gas or exhaust smell through vents


This is normally a problem with the air and fuel mixture as your fuel injector may be sending too much gas through the engine and not all is burning. This can easily be fixed by having your engine properly tuned.

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

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.

No heat after burnt smell


Either your Fan motor is faulty or the fan control resister assembly is burnt out, either of those will cause the smell.

My new hunter fan feels hot when its on high and smells funny but its only been used just this once since i installed it a couple of days ago is this normal


Yes. The outer paint on your fan motor gets heated up first time and when new it does give off some kind of smell. But after a few hours of use the smell should disappear. Smell can come from the winding also.

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)

Clicking/knocking sound and feel when shifting & smell


first check the clutch hydrolic fluid. If it's low or leaking, it may not disengage the clutch completely causing the disk to drag (and smell) The knocking sounds like you're loosing the thowout bearing and/or possibly the disk (there are cushion springs that may have come out of place). Take it to a transmission shop that does free diagnosis. anything other than fluid-related is going to be pricey.
