Hi not know if you are talking of the indoor blower or outdoor condenser fan motor, on either one you need to check the run capacitor first. On the indoor unit it is located right next to the motor. Small, about 5" tall, and 3" wide with 2 to 3 wires coming out the top. Check to see if it has oil leaking from it, see if it is swollen and deformed looking, if so, its faulty. You will need to remove it noting how the wires go, and take it to a appliance parts house to get a new one. If it looks ok, feel of the motor to see if it is hot. Be careful not to burn yourself. Shut off power and see if you can spin it by hand. If it is real hot or hard to spin, the motor is faulty. You will need to have it replaced, or if you are able, you can try to do this yourself. I would have it done. More then likely, the motor is bad.

2002 4 ton Bryant air conditioner shuts off, fan still runs but not cooling is problem in the controls in the attic or in the AC unit or both?


With a non heat pump it is a simple 24 volt AC control circuit. In the attic there is a relay that is actuated via the fan control wire directly from the thermostat. On the thermostat there is an auto/man switch that controls the fan. Manual the fan runs all the time. Auto fan turns on and off with the outside compressor.

If the system is not calling for cool and the fan continues to run the fan relay is sticking. common problem. Sometimes after running for several days the relay will stop sticking if not, replace relay.

If the system is calling for cool and the compressor stops I would still expect the fan to run until thermostat tells the A/C to off. Some compressor units include a safety switch or high-pressure cut-out switch A blocked internal valve bad control board or external fan in outside unit defective no air flow in outside unit.
High pressure cut out not good,

Suggest turning temp max cool and observe. If acceptable cool and the compressor runs without interruption all is good, except for the blower in the attic. Safely check relay in attic blower circuit.

Hope this helps.

Outside unit will only run for a short amount of time with A/C before the fan stops turning and starts humming, squealing/screeching and the top of the outside unit gets hot.


The bearings are bad in the motor and after the fan runs enough it eventually gets hot, making the bearing screech and the fan locks up. Need to replace motor again. See if it has a warranty. The reason it gets hot is because the fan is what removes the heat from the coil and if the fan isn't running there is nothing to cool it off so to speak.

Replace the fan motor and capacitor. If you want to go the cheaper route, change the capacitor first and try to run the unit. The cap. is what gets the fan motor running on start up. Another way to test it is to manually turn the fan bade and while it's still turning, make sure your hands are clear of the blades and turn the condensor on. If the fan runs normally, then it's your fan capacitor.

Refer door left open overnite. can hear it running but fridge and freezer are not cold.and it has run all day. What can I do? .


the fan that blows air from freezer to fridge is probably frozen with ice from all the moist air when door was left open turn off unit and let defrost will see screws where fan is located to help fan defrost us hair drier to free fan when free enough to turn freely turn on unit and push door switches or close door and listen for fan to go on if goes on turn off unit and and continue to defrost till fan and duct [airway ]is clear of ice than turn on and let run -if fan doesnt go on have tested may have burnt out from trying to run while frozen up repair or replace fan and recheck unit good luck

Thanks for your detailed information. But solution is very simple. The compressor contactor in out door unit. Struck. And hence, when you power on, without indoor commanding, the out door starts running.

Replace same type Contactor relay (In out door unit) immediately. Hope, it's helpful.

I replaced the fuses with the proper ones thinking that that was why fan on ac unit was not on. I did the 24 hour off on electrical panel, and replaced fuses, now i hear a click then a humming sound coming...


The humm you hear is the compressor. Turn your unit on and let it run for a couple minutes and grab the large pipe at the outdoor unit. If it's cold, your compressor is running. If your fan didn't turn on, there is a good chance your motor is fried. It could be your contactor, but I doubt it. The compressor and fan are wired through the same contactor, so when one comes on, so does the other. DO NOT run your unit for more than a minute or two with the outdoor fan not running. If you continue to run it, it's going to go out on high pressure and turn back on, and so on, and so on, until it fries the compressor.

Fuses were replaced first. Fan on airconditioning unit won't keep


It sounds like the run capacitor of your condensor fan failed. When it fails, it can prevent your fan from starting unless you manually spin it to get it going, then it could run for awhile before it overheats.

Turned thermostat off...turned it back on...nothing. it's very old, but the unit is new. just had a bad storm. push button thingy on unit, and it comes on, but does not blow in house.


Pull cover of of inside unit. Turn unit on tho see if motor is trying to run. Feel motor to see if it is hot. You may just have a fan relay board out. Turn Tstat to the fan on mode to see if fan runs. Feedback please.

Air conditioner fan will not come on and unit will run for 1 minute and stop


You hear the compressor kick in (Hum) but no fan comes on? Will the fan come on when just in fan mode, not cool, or do you have that set-up?
