Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Fan air pedestal fan, 16" 3 speed, made in China. Fan quit working suddenly. Checked voltage from line, through the speed selector, to motor and voltage is there. There is a 2 ufd capacitor in the circuit. The capacitor charges to the speed selector voltage but the motor doesn't turn. The motor shaft turns easily by hand. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

My guess... bad or broken motor windings. Sounds like it is time for a new motor! Good job with the diagnosing, you have some good skills!

Fan will not turn on, i have verified voltage through the switch. motor gone out?


yes - if you have power thru the switch and that power is also at the motor and the motor is not turning,, then the motor is bad.
but there is one more thing that I could think to check and that would be to make sure that you have power on the hot and the neutral wires -- as there could be a break in one of the lines. again check and observe voltage at the motor.

Thermo set "heat" and "Auto


Check the fan relay. These relays are used to cut the fan on and off when the thermostat is set in the air conditioning or heating mode or when you move the thermostat to the "Fan On" position. The low voltage usually the green thermostat wire is wired to terminal #1. The low voltage common wire to terminal #3. One line voltage wire is attached to terminal #4. The high speed blower wire usually black is attached to terminal #2. When the thermostat calls for air conditioning or "Fan On" the 24 volt coil is energized, the terminals 4 and 2 close. This causes the fan to come on in high speed. When your home cools down and the thermostat cuts the air conditioner off, the low voltage coil terminals 1 & 3 are denergized, and the fan goes off. Sometimes these little relays stick which causes the fan to run all the time or will not make good contact, which causes the fan to not run in the "Fan On" or air conditioning mode.

High cool not working


Compressors on these units runs at only one speed. The change to high cool is only a change in blower speed moving air faster over the cooling coil. I would have the running capacitor for the fan motor checked. A bad capacitor can cause your type of problem. The other problem could be that the high speed winding in the fan motor is bad. Try it operation in the fan only position through the two speeds. If it works in the low and high speed for fan only your problem could be in the selector switch.
