Question about Heating & Cooling

The fan in my Heil air conditioning unit runs for a while then stops turning. When I turn it off for a while and re-start it it runs. Is there a way to lubricate the fan. The motor is running but the fan stops.

It is stopping because it is over heating. You will need a new one. Most of the electric motors today do not need lubricating.

I have a 1989 heil air conditioner, fan suddenly stop working, replaced capacitor A/C worked for 1 day and stop again.


It is possible that the replacement capacitor failed or some other condition not related to the capacitor caused failure.

Heil epm36f19a1 runs but no heat


Fan relay is stuck among other things. The thermostat turns on the combustion air fan and puts power to the spark unit. If the burner comes on after the temperature in the heat exchanger rises the indoor fan will then come on. After the thermostat comes to temperature the power to the gas valve which shuts off the burner. Then after the heat exchanger cools a bit the indoor fan will stop. That's the sequence of events. look at the switches that control the fans. There is a wiring diagram somewhere on one of the panels that access the unit for service.

My ac central air is blowing air but not cold


Problem #1:Outdoor condensing fan motor has stopped running. This problem could be caused by a bad motor run capacitor. If your motor capacitor is not the problem, then more than likely you need a new motor. Is the fan blade tight, stiff or hard to turn? If the fan blade is hard to turn then you probably need a new motor. Problem #2: Air conditioner compressor will not start. When power is applied to the air conditioning outdoor unit the fan starts, but you hear a sound like the compressor is trying to start, "UGGG"..., for about 5 to 10 seconds and then all you hear is the outdoor condenser fan run. The compressor is locked and will not start. What is happening is the compressor is trying to start, but because the compressor motor is locked it tries to start for a few seconds and then because of the high amperage being drawn goes off on internal overload. The internal overload protects the compressor windings from overheating and burning up. I see this many times during the start of the air conditioning season. Some compressors just have a hard time starting after sitting all winter long. Some compressors are locked up so bad that I can not start them and must tell my customer that they need a new compressor . Many times I can get the compressor started again without having to buy a new compressor or new air conditioning system by using the device known as a "Super-Boost." I keep two or three of these on the truck. They have saved many of my customers from having to buy new air conditioning compressor. Another good device is called a "5-2-1" kit.

engine thermostat is a triggering devise to make the fan's work. seconds before it stop when the engine is off, normal for the engine high temperature but it's sign abnormality in the system. fans also runs when the air conditioning unit is "on" to keep the engine operating temperature for its additional load from the unit. need to check if the air conditioning is in "on" position, especially the engine thermostat it may be stuck.

The outside unit is not working on my Heil Air conditioner


The attic fan is not a part of your a/c system, and you should not run it while you are running the a/c. If you are currently using the attic fan, it is possible that someone wired it so that the a/c won't turn on while the attic fan is on. Otherwise if the thermostat is set below room temp, and says it is calling for cool, then the problem is most likely coming from an issue at the outside unit itself. Make sure to check your fuses, at the fuse panel and outside breaker. Hope this helps

FYI.. the only part of the system that might use batteries is the thermostat.
