Fan speed problem on GE 12,000 BTU window unit

My unit's fan speed suddenly switched to a low speed and won't go to medium or high setting now, whether by manually changing or by the remote. Is this a DIY problem that can be fixed? This is only the 2nd season the unit has ever been used and I can't afford to spend much to repair it, let alone replace it.

A multi-speed, remote controlled, fan controller that only allows one speed would require a very smart person to repair it. Even the technicians don't repair them. They just replace them. This is going to cost you some parts.

Gentlemen, I have a GE P547BS fan motor.I'm trying to replace it with a Mars 10584 fan motor.


You can check the colors on the wires with an ohm meter to find there function. Highest resistance is low speed lowest resistance is high speed the one left is medium.

How long should the compressor stay on? mine stays on for (5) minutes,then stays in fan-mode


Kindly check your temprature settings and ventilation of outdoor unit. Your compressor is getting hot either due to low ventilation or your temprature settings are too high to cool.

Fan will only blow on low when heat is on


your fan most likely is wired for low speed for heat which is common. this should be determined when furnace is set up properly. motors that aren't modulating motors and are multispeed motors typically have low medium and high taps that come off the motor and go to the corresponding relay on the board. low and medium speeds are used for heat and high and medium speeds are used for cooling. but only one speed for heat and one speed for cooling many times medium never gets used. im not familiar with klimaire is this a mini split system and not a regular air handler. cause speed control should be adjustable from the remote. if its a split but if not reaching desired speed due to a malfunction in the units could cause it to run low speed just to maintain the temperature exiting the indoor unit.

Ok So We Bought This. But We Have A Problem Does It Take Water Or Not? Thats What I Need To Know! Please Help!


The DeLonghi PACA120E Portable Air Conditioner quickly cools rooms up to 400 square feet and comes equipped with several functions that make operation easy and low maintenance. Its 3 operating modes are supplemented with no-drip technology, an adjustable thermostat, 24-hour timer, and much more. This unit truly takes the work out of cooling medium- to large-sized spaces. Multiple Modes and Functions The DeLonghi A120E-also known as the Delonghi Pinguino PAC A120E-offers 3 operating modes and 3 additional operating functions that make this model versatile and energy efficient. Cool Mode: 12,000 BTUs of cooling power help cool large rooms, offices, or basements. Dry Mode: Reduce room humidity by removing excess moisture from the air. Fan Mode: Circulate air to keep your room comfortable without using a lot of energy. Low, medium, high, and an auto-speed are all included (auto speed selects a fan speed for you). Smart Function: Your AC uses Cool and Fan mode based on ambient room temperature. This function will also select your fan speed and keeps your room comfortable without wasting energy. Sleep Function: Using a low fan speed, the AC gradually reduces operation so your room remains comfortable but the AC runs more quietly and efficiently while you sleep. Boost Function: This function is ideal for the summer months and uses the maximum fan speed to rapidly reduce your room temperature. Useful Features Using DeLonghi's patented no-drip technology, this unit is "dripless" under normal conditions, meaning the AC will discharge all of the moisture collected from the air-so you typically won't have to worry about draining the water. When dehumidifying a lot of moisture in Dry mode, excess water may collect in the internal collection tank. Once the tank is full, the air conditioner will automatically turn off to avoid overflow damage. You can also use the included continuous drain hose as a no-fuss way to eliminate excess water as needed. An adjustable thermostat provides additional convenience by allowing you to set your room temperature. The DeLonghi portable AC will cycle on and off to eliminate over-cooling and maintain the set temperature. Additional Features Washable Air Filter: A washable air filter helps remove allergens and other particles from incoming air and saves you money on replacement filters. Quiet Operation: High efficiency compressor and components result in quiet performance. Electronic Controls: The LCD screen displays the timer and temperature settings, while intuitive indicator lights accompany each operating mode. 24-Hour Timer: This feature lets you program your AC to turn on or off up to 24 hours in advance, so it only runs when needed. Window Bracket: Double window bracket is included with purchase for flexible installation. Self-Diagnosis System: The unit includes a self-diagnostic maintenance system that identifies malfunctions should they occur. Remote Control: Use the full-featured remote control to change modes, set the timer, and select a fan speed up to 23 feet away from the receiver (on the front of the unit). Portability: Easy-roll casters and dual carrying handles make it simple to move this model from space to space.

A/C FAN ONLY OPERATES IN LOW SPEED


It is either the switch,or the motor ,the motor is designed to have the speeds in it it self,but check the voltage on high,from the switch to the motor,if there is voltage,the motor is the problem.

High speed setting of fan does not work


If your motor only works on low speed and not on high speed first check to see if you have the proper voltage to high speed. Check with a voltmeter or multimeter, check from common on the motor to high speed on the motor at the switch. If you have the proper voltage then you have an open winding on high speed and the motor needs replaced. If you don’t have the proper voltage or any volts, then the switch is bad and needs replaced. This also will be the same if, medium speed won’t work and low speed does.

A/C Control Dail only works or High. Replaced a/c compressor.


The A/C dial is High Medium and Low, that only changes the fan speed, it doesn't changed the compressor at all, with all three speeds.
If the fan is not running the compressor won't run very long.
Probably an open winding, in the medium speed of the motor, the switch is bad or medium and low speed not hooked up.

Just bought 12,000 BTU unit from Lowes. It worked


you have to balance the adjustment of fan speed and the amount of coolness you set the unit for. Either increase the fan speed or lower the coldness setting.

I HOPE I AM USING THIS PROPERLY......MY ? IS IN MY


The indoor blower motor is sometimes a 3 speed motor.The heat usually works on low or medium speed.But the a/c is usually on high speed,this gives greater air flow across the evaporator coil to give you better cooling,also better air flow at ducts.These speeds are usually wired through a relay in the inside unit (air handler).They can be changed.If you go to thermostat and put the fan switch to "on" the blower should operate on "high" speed.With the fan switch set to "auto"the operation will determine the fan speed.Hope this helps.

3 speed switch wiring schmatic


On a 3 speed switch you usually have 4 terminals, and they are marked L1, 1, 2 and 3.
L1 which is line voltage from the electrical cord or wall plug, #1 low speed usually a red wire from motor, #2 medium speed usually a blue wire from the motor and #3 high speed usually a black wire from the motor. That is if the fan is low,medium and high, if it says high, medium and low then reverse #1, #2 and #3
