Fan Works But Unit Can't Start Compressor

The fan is working fine, but you can hear when it tries to kick into cooling mode. Sounds like the compressor tries to kick on for a moment, and then it switches back to just fan. Happens in all cooling modes. Tried turning it off for a couple of hours. No difference. Unit is about two years old.

I have a airwell GC-30RCC when put on heat the fan on the indoor unit wont kick in it works fine on cooling and plain fan mode but not on heat mode the red fan light is on too


How do you get it to kick in ?.Fid you spin it by hand ,if that's what you did and fan runs then you have a bad capicator. If fan runs fine in cooling and not in heat then you have a bad board

Handler runs fine but the outside unit, it will kick the fan on for a sec and then shuts off. It does it over and over. sounds like something isn't turning on? what's going on?


Sounds like a bad relay on the fan , if the compressor is trying to start and stopping that kick the fan on and off. That could be due to a low charge if the unit is not cooling properly.

If the unit is cooling properly it is probably a bad relay or contactor on the fan motor.

Other possibility is the fan motor is over heating for one reason or another and if its thermally protected it will automatically shutdown. If thats the case then you need a new motor.

Hi,
The problem here is the compressor.... it has failed and will not start. You can try to replace the capacitor and see if it will go but most likely the compressor is toast. I t will cost more to replace it then to buy a new unit.

Compressor won't kick off


What happens when started in just fan mode? Sounds like relay stuck.

GE Air conditioner cannot kick into airconditioning mode


it sounds like either the start components for the compressor have failed or the compressor itself has failed, since it is not kicking the breaker I would lean towards start components.if it is a PSC only comprssor, you may be able to add a start assist to get the compressor started. I assume that since it is 8000 btu it is 110VAC you can probably get a generic start kit at your local appliance parts house. they have a diagram and are fairly easy to install, just be aware that the capacitor storea charge on the OFF cycle, and can be dangerous

RV A/C blower not working and keeps kicking out


If blower not working, and yoou hear a slight "Hum" with fan only on, try this. With power off to AC. Go up on roof, and slide a stick through opening on side near rear, and try to get to fan blades at rear of unit. try to spin the blades a few times, even if it only goes a little at a time. Unless you want to take all those screws out & remove cover to get at it better, but watch for wasps under there. Give fan a couple of full rotations, then have someone turn it on to fan only & see what happens. If fan finally works, let it run for a few minutes on fan, then try cool & see if it all comes together again. Let me know.

Kenmore a/c window unit fan not kicking on with compressor.


Likely a bad motor, when this occurs verify the board is sending voltage to the motor.

Air conditioner fan will not come on and unit will run for 1 minute and stop


You hear the compressor kick in (Hum) but no fan comes on? Will the fan come on when just in fan mode, not cool, or do you have that set-up?
