Not cooling


are you talking about a central a/c system? the fan that blows is the indoor air fan? check breakers for outside unit. one breaker in the house panel box and a breaker at the outside unit. because other wise tha cap or contactor (for the outside unit) may be bad. both of witch may keep unit from turning on. unless you are knowledgeable about electricity I would not recommend opening the outdoor unit. you could get electrocuted. safety first

Hello
Sounds like the condensor fan motor is going bad.If the fan stops turning or is not turning at full speed, the compressor can not give off heat to the condensor.Which will cause it to shut down on high heat.

So i would start with a new fan motor.Your local heating and cooling supply house should have these in stock.

Fan not turning and unit will not cool house.


Maybe you have a bad duel run capacitor. That capacitor would cause both the fan motor and compressor to heat up and turn off on internal overload. You may want to have a qualified techician test your system.

Motor outside is humming like it on but the fan isn't turning


Sounds like the run capacitor is bad or the bearings or siezing up. Turn the power off to the unit, then spin the fan blade to see if it spins freely, if it does then it's probably the capacitor.

AC unit outside turns on but no air blows through the vents


The first problem sounds like the wiring is wrong up at the heating unit not turning on the blower fan in the heater when you call for cooling. Most typical is either something has chewed the wires or the wires have been stripped b something else. The AC not cooling your house can be either it is low on freon or the system is to small for your house. Also check your filter and make sure that it is not blocked and everything is clean with the filter

Outside makes loud noise


I would take a very close look at every solder joint there is between the inside unit and the outside. If you observe oil at any point it indicates a leak at that point. That is an expensive price for what you say was done. Check your invoice for the amount of refrigerant they or he added to the system. Compare it with the amount stated on the outside unit nameplate. Check for frost on the suction (big line) by the outside unit. If there is frost your coil is frozen up. If this is the case turn the fan on and the cooling off. Allow it to run in this manor for about an hour to defrost the A coil. Then return to the cooling mode.

Sounds like a bad fan motor. Inside fan runs, compressor runs. Outside fan. Are your contactors pulled in when thermostat set on cool? If not might be a contactor. If contactor not pulled in touch the top of it with the end of a screwdriver. If fan spins turn unit off a buy a contactor...
