Question about Weather King 10AJA2501AH Air Conditioner
The AC fan outside has started to stop working. When i turn it off for 5 minutes or more and turn it back on it sarts back up or sometimes it does not turn but looks like it is trying. I can give it a nudge and the fans comes on. It still stops running after anything from 5 minutes to running fien for several days.
Now it is only runnig for about five minutes and the fan just stops running. Everything else stays on but I turn it off because I know it should not run without the fan running. Is this the capcitor causing this or my fan motor. I'm thinking of putting in a new capcitor. What do you think?!
TRY CHANGING THE CAP FIRST BUT MOST UNITS ONLY USE THE CAP TO START THE MOTOR NOT TO KEEP IT RUNNING SO IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A BAD CAP AND THATS WHY IT DOESNT START HOWEVER IF IT STOPS RUNNING WITHOUT THE THERMOSTAT TELLING IT TO (OR IN THE MIDDLE OF A CYCLE) THEN YOUR RUN WINDING IN YOUR MOTOR IS GOING BAD YOU CAN REPLACE THIS MOTOR PRETTY EASY AND IF YOU USE AN AFTER MARKET INSTEAD OF AN OEM MOTOR YOU CAN SAVE YOURSELF ALOT OF MONEY. PS BE CAREFULL WHEN CHANGING YOUR CAP BECAUSE EVEN WITH THE POWER OFF IT CAN SHOCK YOU.AFTER SHUTTING THE POWER OFF USE AN INSULATED SCREWDRIVER AND TOUCH IT ACROSS THE POLES AT THE TOP OF THE CAP TO GROUND IT AND REMOVE POTENTIAL ENERGY.
