Question about Sunpentown WA-9000E Air Conditioner
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.

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.
