Hi, whenever this type of problem is exhibited, usually we suspect the thermostat itself, as this is what ultimately controls the fan.
It still maybe a sensor, (the ONLY way to tell is by substitution with a "Known Good") although it is doubtful, I would more suspect the actual "Brain" of the unit.
Of course it also may be the actual fan itself, but again unlikely,however it still must be tested, usually they are 12 V DC fans, and so can be tested with a battery, all we are looking for is that it actually rotates, and doesn't stop unless voltage removed.
The LCD "Fluttering" does indicate that there also? maybe a fault with the power supply? This too needs to be checked for AC ripple, as well as "other" potential issues with the PSU, as this is, also, what may cause the LCD to "Flutter".

To do any sort of DIY one simply must obtain a service manual for the unit. It is almost impossible to undertake repair work, without one,if only for the spare parts numbers required to obtain spare parts.
Usually, I recommend that one engage the services of a professional, this will ultimately save one time and money, and perhaps hours of frustration too?
What I usually advise is to ask for a "Quote" this way at the least one can then make an informed decision as to what to do, repair or replace, as often seemingly simple problems can turn into expensive repairs.
Customers often tell me that they would rather put any monies that were to be spent on repair towards a NEW unit, with a full warranty, as cost to repair can often be as much as a new unit?..

When calling for heat the outdoor unit fan cuts off and the compressor stays running after about forty seconds.

Actually, for heating mode, the condenser fan works on pressure build up by Fan pressure Switch. If pressure less the fan won't run.

Hi, Just to to let you know, I am a contractor for heating and air conditioning. You have a split system heat pump it sounds like to me. If you have the indoor unit and an outdoor unit, this is a split. If the blower is running but not getting cold air, there could be several problems that would cause this. The service tech should be able to troubleshoot and find the problem in 1 hour or less. Depending on who you call, you are looking at anywhere from $65.00 to $85.00 per hour. Some places also charge you a travel or truck charge of $20.00, try and stay away from them. It will be a 1 hour minimum and in 1/4 hours there after. It could be a quick fix, breaker, fuse, or a serious problem as a compressor. This is what you are looking at. If you do have a split system and the outdoor unit is not on, check the breakers and fuses before you call any one. This may save you many $$$$$!! If you have a system that is all in one or a package unit and the blower comes on, make sure the outdoor fan is running ( condenser fan motor ) and listen to see if you can hear the compressor running. If you do have a split unit, go to the outdoor unit and see if the fan is running and compressor also. If not, check you're power supply. You may get lucky.

I have a split air conditioner my out fan keeps

It depends on the effiency of the unit. The fan could be cycling because the condensor coil is not hot enough. When it get hot enough the fan will turn on. If not you have a bad fan motor

Lsu242he mini split heat pump fluttering light

This sounds like a low voltage short in the unit. Low voltage shorts can be very difficult to troubleshoot. If you are serviceing the unit for a customer, it might be more cost effective to replace it.
