    Same problem... The air fan will not turn on; on auto or fan only. The fan will work if jumpered. I am thinking it is the fan control or thermostat?!?!

    (I can here the compressor turn on)

Is the indoor fan working? The problem with the outdoor fan sounds like it could be your capacitor. Turn off the power to the outdoor unit and make sure the fan turns freely using a screwdriver or something that will reach the blades. If it turns freely then it is probably the capacitor.

Does the fan turn freely or is it hard to turn by hand? If it is hard to turn the fan motor may need to be replaced. If it isn't hard to turn then check the fan capacitor. You can test it with a multimeter or take it to a heating and air supply and get them to test it. A fan will run with a bad capacitor if you get it started but it will not start with one. Let me know what you find.

Re: Kenmore Plasmaire air conditioner; suddenly stopped working during night. Motor will initially turn on but no air coming through, then will stop


Most likely you have a bad fan,did you have a storm or lighting strike or power drop / outage .
These type of things can cause trouble with a weak electrical part - not know the age of the Unit - you claim it happen in the middle of the night - if the fan Humms and cut outit could be a cap. that helps you fan start - but the fan is damaged if it tryed to start time and time again . Call service if the unit is worth it .

Air Conditioner Compressor Fan Quit


Check the start capacitor. You may be able to see visual deformaty, otherwise, use a meter. The buzzing is most likely the contactors closing which uses a seperate 24v supply..

My central air pooched last night.... I am hot and miserable... LOL but anyways... the outside unit makes a noise when I turn it on but the FAN does not spin at all.... any idea what it might be?


depending where the noise is coming from. If you can be next to the unit as it starts see if the noise is coming from the fan or control panel (where the electric is going into) and how loud is it. I would venture to say that it is probably the fan motor, you will hear it if you are there.

AC fan inoperative


I assume you are talking about the condenser fan motor. These fractional horsepower motors are not expensive and have a service life. Unless yours is equipped with oiler plugs (some are), it's best to just replace the motor.
