Question about Friedrich M18CE Air Conditioner
Unit was working / power went down in the whole house , power came back unit started working but can not shut unit,controller is working i see the temp[rature high and low how do i get the unit to recieve signal thx in advance
likely is the thermostat or could be the compressor going out on over load compressor runs blows cold air trips out on the over load fan will stay running jumper out the thermostat see if it stays running.like1/2 hr. if it does replace the thermostat not hard to change if you can find one.Tom

Shut the power off to the unit, spin the fan blade to see if it spins freely. If it doesn't spin freely, (there appears to be a little drag when you spin it),the bearings are bad, if it does spin freely, then try moving the motor shaft from side to side if there’s any play in the shaft side to side then the bearings are worn and motor needs replaced. Then, check the capacitor, if it’s bulging even slightly, the capacitor is bad and needs replaced. Most of the time people replace the capacitor if motor seems ok. If capacitor is ok, turn power on to see if the motor is getting the proper voltage, if it is and not trying to run, then the windings are probably open, the motor's bad and needs replaced.
