Hi there. It may have tripped a circuit breaker. Check your fuse box. If the circuit breakers are intact, try turning the power off to the unit(unplug if you can) for 10 mins then powering it up again. If it still does not operate, the power outage may have damaged the start circuit to the fan or the compressor locked up. You will need to get an approved repair guy out to look at the problem for you.

What's wrong with your current AHU? Any Ruud dealer can assist you. Most 4 ton units work with r-22 or 410a. As a side note, most parts in an air handler can be replaced unless the case is rusted thru.

Elecfandoes notworkwillnotcoolengine

first, test the fan for operation by disconnecting it at the closest plug to the fan itself, then using a couple of loose wires as jumpers, connect the fan to a remote power source like a battery charger or another battery thats got the fan works its good, if not, replace it, if it works then you need to check other things from your ac fuses to all the connections from the ac compressor, all the way to messing with the heater controls..usually if the main control is set to defrost, the override for the fan relay will kick in..mine does.. the fan relay is ocated up on the drivers side fender well in a cluster of 3 -4 relays that look identical but are internally wired different..also be sure the engines temperature sensor(s) are good,,one of these may be a multi wired unit for the fan specifically,,some models vary in the same year...check all connections as road dirt and debris does enter the engine compartment from below, look for corrosion and broken an emergency like on the hiway, usually the airflow is good enough to keep the car within operating temps..good luck..

I have a Goodman CPLE30-1A outside unit and the fan stop spinning. The fan stop spinning so I turn off the main power to the unit and I can spin the fan with the power turn off so I'm not sure if its...

There are a few things here that could be wrong.
1 Fan motor start capacitor is bad.Silver battery looking device on side of fan.Remove and replace with a new one.

2 Contactor for fan motor is pitted or burnt .If this is the case you will need a new contactor.

3 Fan motor is bad.Check top two before assuming this.
Check all fuses and circut breakers also.

My blower motor on my 2006 Sentra went out. Do I have to evacuate my A/C to replace this motor?

You mean the fan in the car? No you dont. It just blows air through the heater / cooler core.
Its very unlikely to be the fan itself. If its not blowing then check the fuses first.

There is also a voltage ballast which controls the different speeds. This is usually located in the airflow from the fan to keep it cool, and is about $15. Usually one speed still work if this goes out. High should work. [Look under the dash of passenger side in the air flow ducting, maybe behind the glove box. Look for a connector block with 3-4 wires comming out, held in by 2-3 screws. Dont run it outside the air flow, it may burn out real quick.]

Last, there may be a relay under the hood in the elec distribution box.

Remove the front cover of the window unit to access the model number location.

Yesterday I went to my sisters house. Her ac's fan was not on. I took some side cutters and make a hole big enough to reach inside and turn the condenser fan on the back side of the unit. I added some HVAC oil to the motor. Don't know how long it is gonna work but it is working now.ca02c58.jpg

I dont have any pics but yes you can reuse the fan if its in good or reusable condition. The electric fan you need for when you turn on your AC it works with your AC.

I have a nordyne elec furnace just put in a new heat sequencer

You need to check the low voltage side to see if the t-stat is calling for heat. If it is, it is either the sequencer or a fuse to the heating elements (older model). But most likely the squencer. If you have a meter, you can check to see what side of the sequencer is burnt. Could also be a relay depending on the model number. If you get me the model number, I can send you a copy of the wiring diagram for the unit. This is the brand that I deal with.
