Either the dual run capacitor has failed and is not providing the help the motors need or the compressor has shorted out internally causing the fan to run when the a/c is off and then blowing the fuse when it trys to turn on.

Heat quit blowing? not blowing at all could it be a fuse? 1991 chevy astro van


If you mean the fan is not blowing, yes it could be the fuse, check all the fuses with a test lamp ( you can buy these from most auto parts stores and they are quite cheap) and have the ignition turned on but the engine NOT running. This may also be the fan speed resistor. This gives you the different speeds and is usually located in the fan housing under the dash. It will have a wiring connector with at least four wires and the resistor is usually screwed into the fan housing. To test it, you will need access to a multi meter and a good set of eyes. Look for an obvious break in the connecting wires on the resistor and check the continuity of each section with the multi meter.
If it is damaged or has lost continuity, replace it. If the fuse is blown and it blows a replacement fuse, check the resistor and the motor for shorts to ground. A motor which is jammed and cannot rotate will also blow the fuse.

Heater works, but only on Emergency Mode


It sounds like you have a "setback thermostat" A control intended to increase efficiency by allowing the fan to run for an adjustable amount of time after the heater turns off, whether the heater is electric or part of a heat pump. If the "setback" time is too long, the element will cool off and the fan will blow cold air. Try and locate the instructions for the thermostat and see if the "fan run time after heat turn off" is adjustable and reduce it by half. Most emergency heat circuits bypass control circuits (its an emergency, you know), and require manual control.

This is a heating and cooling through the wall heat pump. It works normally when heating is selected - the heat pump runs and both speeds of the fan blow warm air. But nothing runs when cooling is...


You have a bad board or bad switch. I would say board. You can have service tech check this out. There is only so far you can go without knowledge of Controls ad electricity. Russ

Fan slows to about half speed when heat cycle kicks in


The heat fan speed is slower than the cooling speed. About 300 rpm less.
You may not have a problem.

Blows cool air


This is normal. To maximize the units efficiency the fan continues to run until all the heat from the coil is pasted to the circulating air.
