Open Question

How do I fix Fan Blower motor on my Sunpentown WA9000E?

I have an older Sunpentown WA9000E portable AC unit. Never had a porblem until recently..One day, the blower motor for the fan stopped working or works very weakly. When this happens, it spins the wrong way in reverse... The AC compressor DOES come on no problem. After taking the sides off, I found that if I give the fan blower squirrel cage a spin by hand in the correct directrion, it spins up and works fjust fine.
Please tell me what is wrong and how do I fix it? I already got a replacement unit, but I still need to fix this one and use it elsewhere.
Cost for repair is not an issue unless more than a replacemnt unit.

If the blower is made of plastic it does not have a set screw. You most likely need a new squirrel cage. They are formed to the shaft and have a compression ring that holds them in place.

SOURCE: Air conditioner/furnace squirrel cage fan remains running when th

probably the fan switch stuck on the fan combination control or improperly adjusted. Turn power off, remove red wire on the relay from the fan motor. Isolate so no short will happen and turn power on.The motor should not run. The fan relay could stick also. You will have to use a volt meter and see if there is voltage on the coil terminals on the fan relay. Put 1 lead to ground and touch only the terminal for the coil on the relay with the other meter lead.It should not have 120volts. If it does it is not the fan relay but possibly a limit sending power to the relay. Try that first thank you J

If there is strong air flow blowing into the house the sq. cage should be OK. Possibly you need to replace the pads and make sure that the pump is not clogged and is distributing enough water to keep the pads wet.

Might be a dirty filter, a burnt compressor wire or a bad capacitor. Or it could be a bad thermostat.

Sounds like compressor failure, overheat or some other reason can't get started. Make sure everything is clear and unplug and let it set for a while and try again. If that don't help take it to shop.

Why did SPT Portable Air Conditioner stopped blowing cold air?


Unit needs to be taken apart and washed out , also check to see if motor turns freely by hand , clean base of unit fans / blowers and drain ports / channels . Check outdoor motor to see if bearings are tight or fan overheats and cuts off if so replace outdoor motor .

Think theres mildow or mold in unit from last year, how can i clean unit out


First, pull-out your a/c unit. Open the electrical control and remove the wiring connections of your fan motor and the compressor. Separate the electrical control and make sure you have the wiring diagram for termination. Unscrew all panels to remove the fan motor, blower, and fan blade from the unit base. You have to move the evaporator farther but be careful with the pipes. After removing the panels, fan motor, fan, and blower wash the coils with water using pressurized water. Spray coil cleaner to remove excess dirt from the coils and wait until all dirt come out. make sure the chemical is not too strong to eat the aluminum fins. Wash and rinse thoroughly the coils to remove any chemicals left in the unit.Clean the panels, fan, blower, and motor.Oil bush type motor.Then assemble fixing the panels, blower, motor, fan blade panel, and fan blade. Screw all parts and rewire the unit.

The AC unit up in the attic became very noisy few days ago. My husband went up the attic and he said the noise is comming from the fan it shakes very bad once the ac is on. What do you think that is the...


I would check the bearing on the fan motor .You can try to move blower back and forth and if it moves more than about 1/8 inch then you may need to replace the motor. Check the mounting bolts that hold squirrel cage in placeAlso check the bolt or set screw that holds blower to motor shaft to make sure it is not letting the blower move when the motor is running. I would clean the fan and motor as well as you can and oil motor if it has oil ports. Hope this helps you. Thanks

When the unit is turned on. I can hear the AC pump kick on and run. But the blower fan motor will not turn on at any fan speed. No setting on the AC will get the blower fan to turn on?


Sounds like then fan has died or the run capacitor has die. All motors that run on single phase mains need a capacitor to start them spinning. These are quite cheap & simple to replace usually - worth just replacing if you feel you can't test it. Looks a bit like a 'D' cell battery with 2 leads hanging out. Could also be that the unit is not cooling/heating and the temp sensor will not activate fan until heating/cooling coolant has passed room temp. - Rick

Blower fan won't come on on the ac side, but it


Yes it is possibly if you have such device. Older unit then yes. Newer say last 10 years no .. If you have a volt ohm meter you can check out the motor to make sure high speed works. Which the A/C uses the furnace uses the low speed. Get back with me if you need further assistance. ken

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.

Whirlpool portable AC, compressor works, but no exhaust fan


there are 3 possiblities 
  1. something obstructing the lower fan motor (or exhaust motor)
  2. bad fan capacitor
  3. or bad motor
to check any of these you will need to disassemble the unit to get to the blower. there are several screws located at various points on the plastic housing covering the unit. Once removed you should be able to check for motor obstructions visually. for checking the motor and capacitor you will need a volt/ohm meter and ideally a capacitor checker. you could try to spin start the motor while it is powered up this could be a possible sign of a bad capacitor if it will start when you do this or if the motor will spin freely while powered down and will not spin start when powered up. I know that is kind of confusing but its how they work. GO FIGURE.  thanks Peyton
