In most cases, the fan has a capacitor to assist in the starting. Check if the capacitor has a bulge or is leaking. If so, it is bad. Although, even if the power is dissconnected, THE CAPACITOR HAS A HIGH VOLTAGE CHARGE STILL IN IT! Discharge the capacitor by shorting the two leads together with an insulated screwdriver. Remember, if not comfortable, call a certified hvac technition. In some cases, if no bulge or leaking is obvious a tech will have a microfare tester to further test the capacitor.

Air condition motor not going on


check to see if the fan is running if not it has frozen up over the winter. turn off fuses to a/c unit then try to turn fan by hand,if not soak down fan bearings with penetrating oil like PB Blaster keepmoving fan blade back and forth until it spins freely. Then try turning on the power to a/c unit if motor then turns fan freely , shut it down again and use a good coat of a-1 motor oil (ELECTRICAL) on the fan brgs. This should get you through for another year or so. On the other hand if fan will not spin by the motor now but spins by hand then the fan motor is bad.

Outside unit motor hums but will not turn


Check the circuit breakers first. Then check the fan capacitor. If the capacitor is good then check the fan motor. Also make sure the fan rotates freely.

38CKC036 Air Conditioner: outside fan will not come on makes a humming noise...


If the humming is your compressor running (feel the large copper line going into the unit, it should feel cold aftter a few minutes of run time) then the fan motor or the capacitor or both need to be replaced, check for voltage to the fan motor when the unit is "humming" if it has voltage and will not start replace the fan motor and the capacitor. hope this helps.

Rv air conditoner turns on but will not cool air. the themostate works good when heat is turn on no problems. the air conditioner acts as if there is no coolant, or maybe not enough. if it were an...


RV air conditioners are a closed system. A Refrigeration mechanic can install valves and re-charge it, but by the time you pay for that, it may be smarter to just replace the unit.You say it's turning on, but do you actually hear the "hum" or "moan" of the compressor kicking in, or is it just that fan coming on?

Carrier Compressor Issues?


When you shut it off and back on it slugged the compressor if you turn it off and back on before the pressures equalize between the high and low sides it will slug the compressor and it will not run should let sit for five minutes or so before restarting. The humming is either the compressor making noise usually common for the compressor to make some noise or the fan motor bearings are getting bad on the outside unit. If the unit works normal probably not much you can do till it breaks if it is the compressor it is more economical to replace the whole unit if it is just the fan motor it is worth changing. You could take an amp draw on the fan motor and the compressor to see if the are within the limits on the name plate of the outside unit.

Air on heat pump not cool outside unit humming but not kicking on


This could be an inoperative condenser fan.System will kick off on high pressure without proper air flow.The hum indicates voltage is present. Providing the fan motor is not locked up and will spin,Check your run capacitor which helps boost the motor voltage initially and will get it turning.If the cap is good,you may be faced with motor replacement....good luck

Air Handler Blower Unit Humming


More then likely it's the transformer. It may be getting weak. I've seen them hum/vibrate almost new and last for years. It's more an annoyance than anything.

Central air conditoner unit doesnt blow cool air into home has some ice on the inlet heat and cooling lines going into the central air unit


Change the furnace filter. Make sure you use a cheap one when air conditioning, as the better ones restrict airflow when they filter out so much stuff and then plug up, not allowing enough air to pass over the cooling coil in the furnace's air plenum. Turn the A/C off for a few hours (with only the furnace fan on if possible) to melt the ice off the cooling unit inside the furnace.
