Outside unit will only run for a short amount of time with A/C before the fan stops turning and starts humming, squealing/screeching and the top of the outside unit gets hot.


The bearings are bad in the motor and after the fan runs enough it eventually gets hot, making the bearing screech and the fan locks up. Need to replace motor again. See if it has a warranty. The reason it gets hot is because the fan is what removes the heat from the coil and if the fan isn't running there is nothing to cool it off so to speak.

Window ac unit shuts off when outside temp is lower then inside temp, doesn't help to turn down ' it still will turn off' its insulated all around very good and its new


It might have a "Green Feature", for lack of a better word. Does the unit still run the fan at all?

If the fan still runs without the compressor, then it is cooling in what they call economizer mode, basically uses the outside air to cool and save on energy.

That is my educated guess.

If you have a user manual for it, look to see if there is a energy saving feature to it.

I have a 901650 intertherm and the fan outside turns on but the air conditioner inside does not work. What could it be?


!st off, do you mean the indoor unit does nothing period as wont run? or wont cool?if it wont run, the checking breakers/fuses etc is a waste of time, as the transformers clearly providing the 24 volts to operate the contactor outside.If you switch your fan to "on" does the fan run?if not, check fan relay, or board or motor/cap etc.If the fan does run with the fan switch set to on, but not in cool mode, the auto function that sends power to green /fan via yellow?cool terminal in the tstat is open and not allowing the 24v to energize the fan relay.

Fan outside isn't running and when turned on the unit outside is running very loud.


The fan outside keeps your compressor cool, the compressor, if left running without the fan running to cool it down can get damaged, the fan normally gets its power from a switch box located outside or near
it. or the motor on the fan could have just gone bad. the fan motor is not as expensive as the compressor to replace. its easy to replace. sometimes what goes out 1st on these motors is the capacitor,the capacitor stores enough voltage to give the motor that extra push to turn. many times its just the capacitor that goes out. when you purchase a motor make sure you also get the matching capacitor.if you can turn the fan and it starts running, its the capacitor, if it starts running and has any kind of bearing noise then you will have to replace the motor. good luck!

Should the outside fan be running when the heat pump is running. I am getting a frost build up outside on the coils.


outside fan ( condenser cooling fan ) need not run all the time . if it is frosting it can be seen from outside.

THE FAN OUTSIDE IS RUNNING BUT HOT AIR IS COMING OUT THE VENTS


In other words, A/C isn't cooling. Is the compressor running in the outside unit where the fan is? In either case, you will need a technician to look at it. It can also need asome refrigerant charge and leak detection. Good Luck, Ned

My fan isn't working


well there not enough data here to make a fairly good solution. but if all the fans are running! and no cool air then it is the compressor.

My house have a gas heating and electric cooling system. When I turned the cooling on the outside fun started but the cooling system inside house does nto start. I tried heating system it dose not start...


if the fan outside is running then feel the compressor outside or listen to it if you can notice that the compressor is running the same time the outside fan is running also.

it could be that the compressor is not running.

but if you can notice that the compressor is making a different sound as it turn on, then the compressor is running but not cooling, then you could have a leak problem. there is no or little refrigerant in the system.

if you have a leak, please contact your local repair man to do it.

I have a carrier infinity system. On the thermostat it reads "sens error" where the outdoor temp is normally displayed. The inside unit is running but the outside unit is not. Any suggestions?


A burned or pitted contactor will/can cause a unit to not run. Outside fan. Just thinking out loud. Start with low voltage check at t.stat then check outside low volt. Set t.stat to on. If fan engages at least your transformer is good. Next set calling for cool. Drop t.stat 68-70. If nothing happens go outside and with a screwdriver depress the contactor in. If fan and compressor kicks in change the contactor. If contactor is pulled in check outside fan. Remove the wires from the compressor and see if the fan will run . If it does you have eliminated start components as good. The compressor has to be check. It needs to be ohmed out. Turn off power at disconnect. Pull the cover on the compressor. Check between pins; then pins to ground. Open or infinite is good.Have you checked fuses. Like small 3-5 amp fuses
