Question about Air Conditioners

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!

Assembly instructions


Do you have a instruction manual? It should come with your fan's packaging.

Pedestal fan will not run.


The cost of repair probably probably will make replacement more feasible.

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.

Hello The easy way to bring the blower on for heating is if the thermostat has an ELECTRIC heat function or selector switch.That will bring on FAN during a call for heat.The aquastat won't be used.

Outside a/c fan quits but compresser still runs


it sounds like the fan is over amping itself and shutting down on thermal overload check the amp draw during running time and compare it to the sticker on the outside panel it should be running .9 amps, and it will over heat if it runs around 1.2 amps or above

RV AC, how to wire fan (blower) motor to capacitor.


You almost have it Look closer at the run capacitor. It has Herm, this is for the compressor, Com or C and F or Fan.

1 of your power wires is the fan speed so connect them accordingly usually black is hi, blue med, & red is low. You are "feeding" voltage to the selector switch on 1 side and coming out to the fan motor speeds.

Next you have a "Common" wire on your fan motor (this means its Common to all the other connections inside the fan motor to me. It is usually white. Connect this to the other line of power usually the Com on the capacitor unless it connects to a strip on the selector switch. But 1 of these 2 places will be the other side of your Power when plugged in. Lastly the brown it is usually the fan capicator only wire and it will connect to the fan "F" terminal on the capicator this terminal will not have any other wires connected to it.

This should make you a happy camper. Please rate me accordingly and good luck.

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.
