Fan Hello, my ac unit blower on the inside is working fine but, the outside fan isn't. i just bought a new relay switch due to that what it was a few years back. but, it's not working the outside fan. so, my question could it be another relay switch? or the compressor? Thanks

    Thanks for your input. i'll check into this and see if it helps if not back to the old drawing board yet again. or worse calling for the repair man to come out and charge a fortune.

Hi wild 36.
I think the problem may be a bad run capacitor. If the outside unit is humming with no action, that may be it.

This could also cause the outside unit circuit breaker to trip.

Intertherm Air Conditioner S3BA-042KA compressor and fan not working (has power)


It sounds like that unit is connected to a "power saving load controller" device from the power company. The power company can turn your unit on & off with a radio signal. If you manually activated contactor and unit ran. I would bet that the power company's device or the wiring connecting it is where the problem lies. Call the power company and have them check their device. If they tell you that the device has been tested remotely and is working fine. Explain to them that you can activate your unit manually and it works fine. They should not charge you to come out. Those "load controller devices" have a pretty good longevity record.

The outside unit has power going to it but isn't


maybe it has tripped off on high pressure, as you have have said the fan is not turning so will cause high pressure. now assuming the problem is the fan is not running than check the condition of the condensator /capacitor for the fan motor. if the motors winding is still good replace the capacitor and try it ON.

Blower never stops. AC outside jammed to stay on???


You need to call someone who truely knows what they're doing. From your decription, the person you had out should not be working on units. You have a problem most likely caused be the person that installed the new motor and these units are not designed to be worked on by the homeowner. There are hazards that could cause damage or injury.

Inside blower not starting every time


You have a voltage bleed somewhere or a short, whatever you want to call it. Do you have a control board on this unit where the relays are integrated into it or do you have the old type where the relay is separate? Anyway, you need to take a meter and take voltage readings to the motor when it's acting up and when it's running right. I have had the same problem with a Goodman unit before and it turned out to be the tstat! What I would do is remove the cover off the tstat and take a small jumper wire and touch the r terminal to the y terminal. If the motor starts right up, you know it's the tstat. If you have the same problem, then the only thing it can be is a low voltage short to the unit from the tstat, bad control board if you have one, or a bad relay. But if the unit is working fine in heat, it's probably not the relay. I hope this helps.

Fan will come on for heat(auto), but not for AC or set to ON


You have a blower relay in the furnace that's probably bad. In the heat mode the blower is on a temperature relay, in cooling mode the blower has to come on immediately so there is another relay for cooling. The green wire on the thermostat feeds that relay, so if you go to the furnace and shut the power off and find the green wire from the thermostat that feeds that relay and replace it, being careful to mark all the wires before removing them, also the relay terminals have numbers for identification.
