SOURCE: blower motor in home air conditioner does not work

The most common failure for this problem is either the start/run capacitor or the fan motor. IF YOU ARE NOT experienced with electricity then I would strongly suggest hiring a technician. The volts are 220 with a potential of 50 amps in a common residential unit.

If you are knowledgeable in this area then make sure the motor has volts to it. If it does have volts and does not spin, it is bad. You can sometimes tell by feeling the motor it will probably be very hot. The compressor will eventually shut itself off when it over heats. It usually will restart after it cools down(sometimes many hours). The motor and capacitor are pretty generic and can be matched up at a local Grainger store or whatever Retail, specialty store that you have in your area.

I hope this helps:)

SOURCE: Rheem Criterion II air conditioner runs but it does not cool

Check air temp out vent should be approx 20 degrees colder than room temp if it is your unit is too small for the amount of space you are cooling.Rule of thumb 1 ton(12,000btu's) for every 400 sq ft of uninsulated space

SOURCE: Air conditioner constantly running, not cooling house

Ours was worse than yours. It was not frozen up, but it did need freon. The tech told us that the compressor coil (the unit in the attic) was leaking freon and that the unit would have to be replaced within a year, but adding freon dropped the temperature inside from the mid-80s to the mid-70s (on 100 degree days). It might go lower, but we don't set the thermostats below 76. We paid $80 for the service call plus another $197 for 3 lbs of freon (for our 4-ton unit). Total cost: $274. The quote to replace the system with a new 14 SEER unit is $7,000 -- but this will get us through the summer. Oh, be sure to replace your filters monthly and keep your condensor fins clean. Spray them down with a hose (even while the unit is running), make sure there are no leaves or other trash blocking them, and make sure you have 2 feet of clearance around the condensor. Putting plants or other objects right up against it will impede its operation. Good luck!

SOURCE: Leaking Haier Commercial Cool air conditioner.

there are 3 drain holes in the primary pan right underneath the evaporator that need to be clean with a pipe cleaner or a wire of somekind and there is also a secondary drain behind it that will work only if the unit is 100% level. To access the primary drain pan you have to take all the screws of the back cover 5 on each side and 3 in the center above the electric cord and behind the air filter and only then will you be able to see these very small holes. Use a flashlight to make sure. Have fun!Reply

I have a Dometic Duo-Therm model no. 59516.531 AC. The fan runs slowly and the seems to run but doesn't cool because the fan doesn't run fast enough. Any help on where to start?


try testing the capacitor for the fan if there is one. if there is multiple speeds on the fan motor see if it is getting the correct voltage to the motor if it is getting reduced voltage it will cause it to run slower. U can find the max voltage on the side of the motor and just test the motor by making up a lead if u can.

I have a continental elec port. air. Not sure of model. Cools great but when compressor kicks on unit make a loud whistling noise. Cleaned filter no help.


although annoying, at this time i would not mess with it, the fan motor needs oiling (zoom spout oiler ) works the best .. you can find how in my other postings.. try running the unit on a lower fan speed... some cool is better than NONE

I have a 6 year old Goodman ClJ24. Today I noticed that the motor in the unit was running backwards.Instead of blowing out hot air from the top, it was sucking in air. Also unit suddenly is not cooling.


Hi,
Yes, once in a while the motor will just start to run in reverse...this is not fixable... you will need to replace that motor...and as you can see if it is not running correctly you will not get proper cooling...

Here is a tip about troubleshooting your air conditioner...
There are many things that can cause your air conditioner not to cool...

Fan motor


I may be that your filters or cooling coil is dirty too. Usually when a fan motor goes bad it simply doesn't run.

AC compressor will not engage


It could be the capacitor, it could be a loose wire connection, it could be a delay switch or a contactor/relay.
