Question about Samsung Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

The fan is working but neither heat nor AC is working. We can hear the condenser try to click on for a second or two every minute or so but does not start. Is there something we can check or clean before calling? What does it sound like the problem is? Is it expensive? Thank you. Rog

Sounds like you have a popped capacitor due to dirty condenser coil. A Dual capacitor through a company is going to run you at least $250 and the condenser coil needs to be chemically cleaned. If you get it yourself I think depending on the size around $30 - $40. Make sure to clean that condenser coil very good.

Problem with GE PTAC-Model# AZ28E09DABM2 - Why won't condenser kick on when switching to AC from Fan. AC was working fine until today...Fan is still working...Pulled the unit out and could feel the h


Hummm. A bit difficult to solve this problem. Seems like the condenser outside is not working, I mean the fan of the condenser. Looks like you have a wall A/C and a wall A/C always have condensers outside the house and near the A/C. Have you checked if the fan is spinning? I don't think the compressor is at fault but check it anyway. You should be able to hear the compressor running either in the wall unit or in the outside condenser housing. The only heat you should feel is from the condenser itself. If you blows warm air, that means the fan is working, if not that means the fan is not working. But don't be confused with the fan not working because in winter time sometimes the fan is not working and some times it does. As I said, it's a difficult problem to solve but at least start with checking the situation with the fan in the condenser.

My furnace works on ac and blows on ac but on heat it does not blow but i hear a humming sound coming from the furnace


Most furnace operating on Oil or gas will heat the combustion chamber before starting fan to prevent cold air draft at start-up, can last a minute or two. Eiter the main flame does not come on or the chamber thermostat have fail. Try to modify fan option on room thermostat from auto to on. Cold air coming out: burner problem or no more oil or gas, warm air: burning chamber thermostat problem, leave room thermostat fan option to on until repair.

Honeywell Thermostat RTH6350 makes heat run in AC mode after AC runs


Well, if it wasn't doing that before then you more than likely know its in your wiring. Cools down then heats back up sounds like the auto change over is on, and the heat setting is higher than the cool setting?

Have the Royal Sovereign ARP-3012 Air Conditioner for over year. Last week the condenser stopped kicking in. The fan will still work, but when on the cool setting you can hear the condenser try to start,...


I've had the same problem. I assume that the wind, from outside, blew off the lower blower flan blades. The pieces that came out when the AC kicked shows that the fan blades are only held by one end and stand on a disc like candles on the outer rim of a cake.

It's the only plausible explanation I could find since there is nothing else that could have gone into the fan the break it.

Check Eric Olson's solution, it's very well detailed:

Radio fuse on 96 galant keeps blowing out and clicking from glove box when recirc for a/c is pushed out engine gets hot on acceleration only in temps above 90 degrees outside


Check to see what else shares the same fuse with the radio. If cigarette lighter is on it could be a penny or something stuck between the lighter and socket. That would be because when it is hotter the ac is working harder to cool the car, forcing the ac condenser to heat more. Make sure all fans are kicking on to cool it down. Most cars have two fans one for when ac is off and one for when its on. So make sure both are kicking on or that one is kicking on and off with two different speeds. You can hear the fans kicking on and off when the car is on in park. If you don't hear fans kick on check fan fuses, relays, and fan motors.

Ac unit clicks outside but nothing engages fan or compressor on unit furnace still runs for heat setting and fan still blows but ac will not engage just hear a clicking was running for three days this...


Have you check the outside breaker? If its ok then you got a problem in your electrical system inside the unit probably the contactor is not engaging this is where the 24 volts from the thermostat calls for the 240 volts to run the condenser fan and compressor. Be careful checking this out because of the high voltage.

The fridge/freezer is making buzzing noises that go on for 10/15 seconds every 5 minutes or so. Both fridge and freezer have heated up to 49 and 26 degrees through the night. Help!


ur compressor is trying to start but the safety is turning it off may have a bad compressor but try this first might get it working again -(safety click sound) disconnects power when compressor gets to hot or is drawing to many amps--stuck--comp gets hot unplug unit and clean with a vacuum carefully under where comp and fan are this is the condenser area after cleaning or 1 hr plug in and check for start and that condenser fan is working may be reason for overheating-if still not working compressor needs service

Lennox air conditioner is blowing hot air


Check your coils for ice, check your breaker and fuses for condensing unit, and is your condensing fan running? If not, you either have a bad fan motor or capicitor. After you hit the button, and wait for it to time out, (you should hear a click) take a butter knife, and spin the fan if it is not moving. If the fan start spinning by itself after your assistance, you have a bad capacitor

This does not seem logical as the AC compressor is run off of a belt attached to the engine. If you hear the fan spinning and can hear the relay click when the AC is turned on, it is engaging properly. If you run the AC full blast for about 10-15 minutes and look under the hood you should be able to find the lines for the AC and see some condensation on one portion and feel heat coming off the other portion. The AC line should be a relatively thin silver colored pipe with 2 fittings on top, one high pressure and one low pressure. Assuming everything is running as it should, and the AC is simply not cold (which is the most common problem), you can buy an AC recharge kit at your local auto parts store. Depending on the year of the car, you may need to bleed the system of the old refrigerant as they changed the standard freon used in recent years. The only moving parts in the system are the fan and compressor, so if there is a drop in speed, it will be one of these components.
