Whole house attic fan

My 30" whole house attic fan won't start. When you flip the switch on, the motor buzzes, if you spin the blades manually the motor runs. Do I need to replace the starter capacitor or the motor?
Thank you,

A simple capacitor tester will tell if the capacitor is bad. turn off power, label wires and where they go and test cap after discharging it . to discharge simply connect the terminals together once its been removed( you can use an insulated screwdriver to connect them and discharge any stored voltage) and then touch meter leads to each set of terminals and read the microfared output. the setting on the meter is usually labeled uf. or you can take it to the electric motor shop and let them test it. it has a rating value labeled on the side. usually it has to be within 10 percent of the rated value or its bad . if the cap checks good then the start winding in the motor is probably bad or weak, then a new motor is called for, it is usually not worth the time wait and trouble of getting it rewound etc. take the old motor out and label and measure exactly how and where it was mounted. label and make diagrams. saves a lot of time reassembling exact as it came out. turn off the power , check it with a meter to be sure , short it with a screwdriver to be sure the meter works ,and then treat it as if it was still hot as much as possible when you work on it.

Hoshizaki am-25ae. We have inherited a AM-25AE with the lodge we bought and it works just fine. We do want to give it a very good clean inside and disinfect the whole water 'way' to ensure the ice won


Cleaning Instructions:
Water System
1) Dilute approximately 5 fl. oz. (148 ml) of recommended cleaner Hoshizaki " Scale Away" or "Lime-A-Way" ( Economics Laboratory, Inc) with 1 gal. (3.8 lit) of water.
2) Remove all ice from the Evaporator and the storage bin. Note: To remove cubes on the evaporator, remove the front panel ( Lower), move the control switch on the control box to the "OFF" position and move it back to the "ICE" position after 2 minutes. The harvest cycle starts and the cubes will be removed from the evaporator plate.
3) Move the control switch to the "OFF" position. Close the water supply line shut-off valve.
4) Remove the water tank to drain the water. Refit the water tank in its correct position.
5) Slowly pour the cleaning solution into the water tank.
6) Move the control switch to the "WASH" position.
7) After circulating the cleaner solution for about 30 minutes, move the control switch to the "OFF" position.
8) Remove the water tank to drain the cleaning solution. Refit the water tank in its correct position.
9) Open the shut-off-valve.
10) Move the control switch to the "WASH" position to circulate clean water for about 5 minutes.
11) Move the control switch to the "OFF" position and immediately back to the "WASH" position to rinse water.
12) Repeat the above rinse procedure three more times to rinse thoroughly.
13) Dilute approximately 0.5 fl. oz. (14.8 ml) of 5.25% sodium hypochlorite (Chlorine bleach) with 1 gal. (3.8 lit) of water.
14) Move the control switch to the "OFF" position. Close the water supply line Shut-off-valve.
15) Remove the water tank to drain the water. Refit the water tank in its correct position.
16) Slowly pour the sanitizing solution into the water tank.
17) Move the control switch to the "WASH" position.
18) After circulating the sanitizing solution for about 15 minutes, move the control switch to the "OFF" position.
19) Remove the water tank to drain the sanitizing solution. Refit the water tank in its correct position.
20) Open the shut-off valve.
21) Move the control switch to the "WASH" position to circulate clean water for about 5 minutes.
22) Move the control switch to the (OFF) position and immediately back to the "WASH" position to rinse water.
23) Repeat the above rinse procedure two more times to rinse thoroughly.
24) Move the control switch to the "ICE" position, and start the automatic ice making process. Refit the front panel (LOWER) in its correct position. abut do not forget to wash and sanitize the ice bin.

Ice machince is going max freeze cycle shut down


1. Possible cause. Water leak. Check purge valve, water curtain, sump, sump hose.
2. Air filters clogged. Clean air filters.
3. Dirty condenser. Clean condenser.
4. Restricted location, intake air to hot. Have machine moved.
5. Ice thickness sensor dirty or disconnected. Check ice thickness sensor probe.
6. Water distributor dirty. Remove and clean water distributor.
7. Inlet water valve leaks through during freeze cycle. Check water inlet valve.
8. Connected to hot water. Check for bleed through from missing check valve in building water supply.
9. Incomplete harvest. Check harvest system.
10.High pressure cut out opened. Check fan motor pressure control, check fan motor, check controller using test mode.
11. Fan motor pressure control open. Check fan pressure control.
12. Fan motor not turning. Check fan motor, check fan blade,check controller using test mode.
13.Water pump not pumping. Check pump motor,check controller using test mode.
14. Pump hose disconnected. Check hose.
15. Compressor not operating. check compressor contactor, check controller using test mode.
Check compressor start components, check PTCR resistance and temperature, check compressor voltage, check compressor windings.
16. Low refrigerant charge. Add some refrigerant and restart unit. If cycle time imporves, look for a leak.
17. Hot gas valve leaks through during freeze. Check hot gas valve for hot outlet during freeze.
18. Thermostatic expansion valve bulb loose. Check bulb.
19. Thermostatic expansion valve producing very low or high superheat. Check evaporator superheat, Change TXV if incorrect.
20. Compressor inefficent. Check compressor amp draw, if low and all else is correcy, change compressor.

check hot gas valve to make sure it is not bypassing when in freeze mode this will not let the evaporator plate get cold enough. need to check refrigerant pressers.

I HAVE AN MANITOWOC Q SERIES CVD 2075 UNIT RUNS FOR 30 MINUTES AND ONE OF THE DUAL FANS CUTS OUT CAUSING INSULATION TO BURN OF HOT GAS LINE PLZ HELP


Sounds like a bad headmaster valve, bad fan motor, or bad pressure cycling switch for the fan motor. Will need to know operating pressures to troubleshoot. Not really a DIY job unless you have some experience.

WILL NOT START


The first thing is what is the model? If you have a stand alone icemaker then make sure the ejector blade is pointing at 12 oclock. Then turn the switch to on position. The compressor and fan should come on. If not it could be a thermostat or a motor in the icemaker that is bad.

Ice maker does not turn on


1st where is the ejector blade pointing? It should be at 12 oclock. If it is try to tap on the blade to see if it comes on. It could be a bad motor in the icemaker head. It also could be a thermostat. blue and yellow should be closed. 3rd if the limit switch is open this would shut everything down as well.

Give-me plis a wiring digram manual of the Ice Maker U-Line BI-95


Your going to call U-line and ask for it. 800-779-2547. Now what are you trying to do? I can give you the wires on the thermostat. Terminal 1 is red(icemaker) Terminal 2 is yellow(common) Terminal 3 is blue/black(compressor and cond fan motor) When yellow and blue or black are closed this will run the compressor and fan.Thermostat is satisfied then the red and yellow are closed and it advances the icemaker. Ejector blade at the 12 oclock calls for freeze cycle. at 2 calls for heater to come on(inside icamaker) at 10 oclock it trios the water switch and calls for water.Then back at 12 oclock calls for freeze cycle. Temps should be 10-15 degrees in the bucket. Warmer the setting the more ice it makes.

Same problem, not woeking no noise, nothing


No seperate breaker. You do need to look at the ejector blade. That needs to be a 12 oclock. Straight up before the hold switch can release and then the compressor and fan should come on. If you need to advance it. Remove the cover of icemaker. (pry on corners and pull cover off at same time) The smaller gear should have 5/16 head on it. Turn that counter clockwise until the ejector blade is at 12. (the fingers that pushes the ice out)

U-LINE BCM95 NOT CYCLING


These units take a full cycle to get to the fill cycle, so you won't get ice on the first cyle unless you manually fill the tray when you first power it on. You may have some air in the water line and need to cycle a few times to fully bleed the air out. Also check the water inlet for debris in the filter screen using a small brass brush, then bleed out air -with water on- while tightening back hose connection avoiding need to bleed while cycling.
