Why is my Intertherm P681S unit getting hot and the fan is is stopping?


Is the outside running? Is the outside fan running? Probably what is happening the fan outside quits running and the compressor gets hot and goes into thermal overload. need to check to make sure the outside fan is running.

Fan outside isn't running and when turned on the unit outside is running very loud.


The fan outside keeps your compressor cool, the compressor, if left running without the fan running to cool it down can get damaged, the fan normally gets its power from a switch box located outside or near
it. or the motor on the fan could have just gone bad. the fan motor is not as expensive as the compressor to replace. its easy to replace. sometimes what goes out 1st on these motors is the capacitor,the capacitor stores enough voltage to give the motor that extra push to turn. many times its just the capacitor that goes out. when you purchase a motor make sure you also get the matching capacitor.if you can turn the fan and it starts running, its the capacitor, if it starts running and has any kind of bearing noise then you will have to replace the motor. good luck!

Should the outside fan be running when the heat pump is running. I am getting a frost build up outside on the coils.


outside fan ( condenser cooling fan ) need not run all the time . if it is frosting it can be seen from outside.

My air conditioner has stop working its blowing air inside but the fan is not spinning outside .....


If the fan is not running is the compressor not running also...if neither is running the possible reasons are 1..no power to outside unit...2..bad contactor on outside unit.is this buzzing if it is this indicates no power...3 bad capacitor,do both compressor and fan humm then quit humming and hum some more...4 high pressure switch has shut unit down because fan wasnt running if compressor was running but not fan....if your unit has this there will be a manual reset button where the lines come out of unit...if compressor was running and fan was not...1 bad fan...2 bad capacitor.. if you do not have any electrical knowhow i would recommend calling a hvac tech to come and fix unit...Thanks

THE FAN IN THE OUTSIDE UNIT IS NOT WORKING. INSIDE UNIT RUNS BUT NO COOL AIR IS COMING OUT OF VENTS. IS THERE A REST BUTTON OLN THE OUTSIDE UNIT?


either the fan has went out or the capisitor for the fan is bad and needs to be replaced.if you have run the outside unit very long without the fan turning you might be replacing the compressor as well as the fan or capisitor.if the fan isnt pulling air through the cond coil outside,the compressor gets very hot very fast,and it locks down(burns up). get it looked at asap before it cost more because of other broken parts caused by the fan not working.

On my window unit the compresser only runs for 15 sec. and shuts off for 4 min. the fan stays running.. its not cooling the room


possably a problem with the outside condensor fan motor. Pls check
1.) when unit is running is the outside fan motor also runnng. My guess is the outside fan is locked bad motor ect. Unit would only run maybe 30 seconds before cycling on its overload

Rheem Heat Pump outside fan seems to be running 24 hours per day. Outside temp 23 degrees. Is this normal? Model #RPKA-018JAZ


no this is not normal. the fan should stop running when the thermostat is satisfied or when the heat pump goes into defrost mode. if it is running nonstop, there is a contactor that operates the fan and compressor that if it sticks will get line voltage to it. you would have to take the cover off of the outside unit and turn the thermostat to off. If the fan continues to run, you need a new contactor.

Fan is still running in house constantly


Check your wall thermostat to make sure the "fan" switch is in the "auto" position. If it is set at the "on" position, the indoor fan WILL run continuously. Not really enough info as to what type of split system you have. Gas? Electric? Heat pump? Oil? Wood? Newspapers? See what I mean? Is it variable speed? Do you have a "special" thermostat for certain operations? Does your system incorperate inverter technology?

A/C quit running


This question is really to broad to answer. There are several things that could cause it to stop running. I think I would turn everything off, let it cool down for several hours and try it again. When you kick it back on, take note of what is running and what's not running. Inside fan, outside fan, compressor. If the outside unit will not run at all it could be as simple as a grasshopper caught in the contacts. If you hear the compressor running outside but no outside fan, The fan motor probably needs replaced. Please make sure that all power to the unit is TURNED OFF before removing cover plates on outside unit and before trying to remove insects from contact points. Check all wiring inside outside unit while it is open. Also check capacitors for swelling or leaking. If you don't know how to turn all the power off or open the outside unit, you need to call a professional AC technician. Hope this helps. kstfas
