F6 error code on Frigidaire split unit ac, model FSC12CM6J/FSE12CM6J. Solution says to check fuse? Where is this located?


It seems like the indoor fan is not running. Quite a few split systems have a fuse on the indoor board. It will require stripping off the outer cover of the indoor unit and removal of the electronic box cover. The indoor board is in there. The fuse may be replaceable or it may be a type that is soldered on which makes it virtually non replaceable. ( A new indoor board will be required) Make sure all power is turned off or disconnected before you do anything. Another possibility is the fan motor start capacitor has failed. Try this first before stripping the unit. When the unit is turned on and the outdoor unit has started, give the indoor fan barrel a flick with your finger to start it spinning, if it keeps spinning and the error doesn't appear, it would indicate that the fan motor start capacitor has failed. The capacitors on indoor units are normally small black square boxes with 2 terminals on it. These capacitors are mounted inside or close to where the indoor electronic box is. Again, make sure all power is disconnected or turned off at the meter box before you do any disassembly.

Indoor fan barely turning


the three post capacitor has c for line voltage in, the f or fan is for the outdoor motor,and com or comp goes to start winding compressor.youll have to follow wires from indoor motor to find capacitor. to find wires to outdoor motor to capacitor you have line voltage and capacitor wires .look for schematic it would help or send colors of wires from both motors and compressor common,start .run.

Air compressor on Heil air conditioner is humming but not kicking in


Capacitor Failure Symptoms are sometime harder to identify without the right tools and expertise. Capacitors can be found in several different sizes and shapes. There may be one or multiple capacitors included in your ac with regards to the design. While the most popular capacitors are the types found on circuit boards, the ones most associated with air conditioning will be the bigger capacitors that assist start and run your motors. There are several motors present in an conditioner and heater systems:
  1. Compressor Motor Run Capacitor: Here is the most popular capacitor that fails. Most of the time these are duel capacitors, which means that there are 2 capacitors built into one. A duel capacitor will have three terminals on the top where a single capacitor will simply have two terminals on top.
  2. Outside Fan Motor Run Capacitor: That is the smaller capacitor found with or part of the Compressor Motor Capacitor. It helps start and run the outside fan that blows air through the outside coils.
  3. Indoor Blower Motor Run Capacitor: Similar to the outdoor fan motor capacitor, it is a small, single (two terminals) capacitor that will help start and run the indoor blower motor.
  4. Start Capacitor: Some models include an auxiliary start capacitor that helps jump start the motors. Most are found on the compressor. These are less common.

You may need to get that checked out.

Armstrong concept 1200-bad start/run capacitor?


Yes, most likely the start capacitor has failed & should be replaced. You have proven this by being able to hand-start the fan. Once replaced, the compressor should kick in & work fine.

Ruud ubhc-17j11sfd the outside unit wont come on for AC. I checked the breakers in the main breaker panel for the house. The fan inside works.


Hi!!
Did you check if the outside fan is working?? On the summer time the failure of condenser fan motors increases due to hi temps.
Have somebody turn unit on as usual while outside you check if condenser fan is turning and if the compressor kicks in. If the fan motor do not work, the compressor will shut of to prevent damage..
If either one of them tries to start but can't take off, replace starting capacitor, some units have separate capacitors and some have combo capacitors, they work the same.
If after replacing the capacitor the fan motor still don't want to start up, replace motor. If Compressor do not want to start, call a HVAC Technician to perform further testing.
Good Day!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

External Compressor is working but unit inside not working. Sharp airconditioner. Filters cleaned.


Check the circuit breakers for the indoor fan. If you have power to the fan then you might have a bad capacitor or bad fan motor. Make the power is off and see if the fan rotates freely by hand. You can use a multimeter to check the capacitor and the fan motor. If it is not any of these you can look at the fan relay to see if it is working.

Does not cool


CHECK FREON LEVEL...IF GOOD CHECK FOR DISCONNECTED
THERMOSTAT OR COMPRESSOR OR CONTACTOR WIRE AT OUTDOOR UNIT WITH POWER OFF. CHECK FOR A BLOWN CAPACITOR OR UNIT GROUNDED OR BURNT WIRE. BAD BREAKER OR SEE IF OUTDOOR FAN COMES ON AND COMPRESSOR KICKS IN ( MAKES WHIRRING NOISE ) .

INSIDE CHECK BOARD FOR BLOWED FUSE, GROUNDED WIRE, MAKE SURE SYSTEM IS GETTING 24 VOLTS, IF NOT CHECK THERMOSTAT WIRES OR TRANSFORMER ON INDOOR UNIT.. IF YOU SET THERMOSTAT TO OFF AND ON AND THE INDOOR FAN COMES ON..YOUR GETTING 24 VOLTS.NOW YOU NARROWED TO THE BOARD OR LOOSE WIRE, FUSE OR THERMOSTAT. IF YOU TURN YOUR UNIT ON COOL AND AUTO AND THE INDOOR AND OUTDOOR FANS COME ON AND THE COMPRESSOR KICKS IN
BUT IS NOT COOLING...CHECK AND POSSIBLY ADD FREON...
ALSO CHECK AND MAKE SURE INDOOR BREAKER IS ON.

AirTempB2T8F7A wall airconditioner,fan works but compressor not!


just install the new one and there is no start up procedure -------- when you get the new one ask if there is a stronger one or a hard start kit capacitor -------- that will give it a little stronger bump to kick the motor over
