Question about Intertherm Air Conditioners

1 Answer

Intertherm model P853A5 older style AC unit fan will not start to rotate when thermostat control set to cool.I have a feeling that it might be the electric motor. I removed the screen and rotated the fan manually looking for a bearing problem but found the fan rotated smoothly without any problems.When I set the unit to cool I obsereved the fan motor trying to turn and then it stopped aplost like it could not handle the load of the fan.

This is most likley the capacitor. Be very careful when changing it out!!!!! Make sure to use an insulated device to discharge it first before touching it!!!!!!! To discharge it place insulated device across the two spade connectors on top.

Frigidaire AC window unit, model fam185r2a (18,500 BTU) only cools for a few minutes before it cycles off and just fan blows. Then a few min later cool air cycles back on. Is this a thermostat issue?


The window units normally have a sensor thats attached to the front of the indoor coil. This controls the thermostat. I usually pull this sensor away from the coil because it stops cooling before the room is cool. It is attached to the cold coil so it senses the coil temp, not the room temp. You can normally see it when you remove the air filter. Don't break it! It may be a wire or small copper tube

Ac unit shuts off but blower stays on at a slower speed


Some thermostats have a setting that keeps the fan running constantly. If its a programmable one you can change it. If it has a fan limit control it my be sticking.

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.

My CP06E10 airconditioner cools non stop without cycles .Goes on Cooling beyond set temp risking burn-out. Apparently thermostat stopped working. What can I do?\r\nThanks. abul It started a few days...


The thermostat is built into the touch pad,along with transistor board,the part replacement is almost as expensive as the whole ac unit,I dont know witch wire to tell you is the thermostat,wire,but it may be marked thermostat,if so,put,in line on that wire a manual thermostat for and older model ac,none of the new ones will have a manual thermostat.So ask for a manual thermostat control,I hope this helps.

Compressorruns fora short time


the thermostat controlling your unit likely has a window type of programming for digital or mechanical adjustment for older style thermostat that sets a minimum off temp and a maximum on temp, there may be an adjustment to set the range it operates at, otherwise you may have a defective thermostat controller unit and it needs replacing also insure that the temperature sensing element is clean and free of dust build-up and your filter is clean

I have an intertherm electric furnace FEH-A020, with multispeed blower installed when A/C added. My problem is blower operation. at the end of the cooling season with fan set to auto operation the fan ran...


The model of T-stat you gave comes up as a discontinued model on Honeywell's web site, but it looks to be a manual stat that type of stat would have to be wired with a summer winter switch with electric heat, allowing it to turn on the fan with a call for heat. If yours is a programmable T-stat you would need to select electric heat or in the installers set up change the default setting for fan from unit controls fan in heat to thermostat controls fan.

No AC from older Intertherm split system


It sounds like you are low on refridgerant. Double check to make sure both fans and the compressor are running. If so then you have a refridgerant problem.

1990 model RUUD AC unit. Fan runs, no cooling

Will run and cool until the thermostat turns it off and will not start back up. Inside fan continues to run. Compressor is completely dead.


Dear jack289,
The thermostat is not working properly. When thermostat cutsoff the compressor Please turn the thermostat knob to higher setting if compressor starts working then please change the thermostat. The fan will run continuously since only the compressor is controlled by the themostat.

Check for a open limit switch caused by a dirty filter or poor air flow
