Hello, this sounds like a bad capacitor or bad fan motor. Replace the capacitor, if replacimg the capacitor does not work you have a bad fan motor. Capacitor is usually about 10 bucks where a motor is about 200. So try repacing the cap first.

The fan stopped working and the compressor overheated due to this. Turn the disconnect (switch by outside unit off) and let cool.

Try spinning the fan by hand. If it moves freely replace the capacitor, if not replace the motor.

Is the furnace fan (indoor fan ) running. If not the problem is with the inside unit. It supplies the control power to operate the entire system and has a control fuse on the circuit board. If it is running but not the outside unit then the problem is outside.

Lennox central air for home not kicking on. Fan on the outside not spinning but motor is making a humming noise. No cold air coming in home. We have circuit breakers they are turn to the on position. ...


Is the indoor fan working? The problem with the outdoor fan sounds like it could be your capacitor. Turn off the power to the outdoor unit and make sure the fan turns freely using a screwdriver or something that will reach the blades. If it turns freely then it is probably the capacitor. Let me know what you find.

Lennox air unit not blowing cold air


your fan motor outside is going bad, have a service company change it out for you.

the motor stopped working and that overheated the compressor shutting it down on thermal cutout, and it will only come on once it cools down

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
