Question about Whirlpool ACQ158XP Wall/Window Air Conditioner

1 Answer

Fan does not work.

I have a Whirlpool ACQ158XP0. This morning I turned it on and the fan started very slowly and there was a wierd humming noise that didn't go away until the fan got up to speed. Also when I cycled through the fan speeds, it doesn't blow like it did yesterday. So I turned the unit off and started it again in turbo and it made the same noise and started slowly like before but then the noise came back the fan slowed down and stopped. I believe the compressor is fine because I could here it run and the copper lines were cold. Thanks

I'm working on one right now and I believe it's the capacitor. It's hard to find this capacitor. So far I've tryed 3 HVAC suppliers and none have this rare capacitor. First UNPLUG THE UNIT. Take the phillips screws out of each side in the front. Then take the 3 screws out of the face of the control. There are 3 white common wires and a dark brown compressor wire and a light brown fan wire. Take the 1/4 inch screw out and unplug the wires and find another one.

Whirlpool Side by Side. Husband replaced fan motor inside freezer. Ever since it's been replaced, it runs frequently and hums loudly. Any suggestions. He took the interior back out and it doesn't hum.


The fan blade touching the interior back cover????

May be the fan motor shaft is too long or may be he did not push the fan blade well inside into shaft so it is to much out. Thus touching the wall cover plate..????

There are two things that come to mind, the magnetron is starting to fail, or the strapping has come loose on the fan motor housing, unplug microwave oven and remove top, [several screws] carefully inspect the fan for any loose mounts and tighten.

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.

Cooling fan hums and turns slow.


You will need to replace the cooling fan motor. Remove it and check the numbers on the fan and then do an online search for the motor. you can also contact a website called the repairclinic.

Ceiling fan turns slowly


If you've had it for a few years, the bearings are probably getting bad (dry).
Always start a fan on high---then go to the speed you want, only the high speed windings will handle start-up.
