Question about Airtemp B6D30E7A Air Conditioner

Fan does not work

I replaced the fan motor after original fan developed a sqeal (worn bearing). It was recommended I replace the capacitor so I did this as well. After replacement fan and a.c. ran fine for 30 minutes and then fan stopped. I ran wires to old fan and this will not run either. I went back to old capacitor but the fan will still not run. I have checked and rechecked wiring and connections but all is in order there. I have tried to cycle the fan through all three speeds (high, med., low) without results. Any thoughts?

Check resistance through the fuse and the actual control switch and see if it's registering anything. Usually wiring doesn't go bad unless it gets a nick in it or is overloaded and burns out. If it all looks good then check to see if you're getting voltage to the fan motor when turned on. Be sure not to let leads or live wires go to ground or touch you, it can hurt you or your wallet worse. That should be a good start, tell me if it works out.

Kenmore 12000 btu turns on fine but after a few minutes fans shut off and compressor keeps running this is a heat and air model


First replace fan capacitor and try, if not, bearings worn out in your fan motor. Replace bearings or motor with new capacitor.

After about 5 minutes the unit stops working. No sound or even a fan noise. I just cleaned the filter to see if that helps, but it didn't.


Is the fan running and stopping before the unit completely quits?
If the fan quits the compressor won't run very long.
I would start with the fan motor or capacitor.
Shut the power off to the unit, spin the blower wheel to see if it spins freely. If it doesn't spin freely, (there appears to be a little drag when you spin it),the bearings are bad, if it does spin freely, then try moving the motor shaft from side to side if there’s any play in the shaft side to side then the bearings are worn and motor needs replaced. Then, check the capacitor, if it’s bulging even slightly, the capacitor is bad and needs replaced. Most of the time people replace the capacitor if motor seems ok. If capacitor is ok, turn power on to see if the motor is getting the proper voltage, if it is and not trying to run, then the windings are probably open, the motor's bad and needs replaced.

Two units, one works fine the other unit fan does not come on.

Fan does not operate in my 54501 Kenmore dehumidifier; therefore, unit gets very hot.

She was a little noisy with the fan sounding like it was rubbing, today i found no working at all but it was real hot. I opened the back and the fan spins freely and there is a canister that looks like a...


The capacitor should not be hot, so the motor could be drawing high amps do to a worn bearing which could cause the rubbing sound.
With the power off try to move the motor shaft from side to side, it shouldn't move any that way, if it does the bearings are worn and you need to replace the motor and the capacitor. The other cause for the hot capacitor would be a bad capacitor.
If the motor is bad you should also replace the capacitor at the same time.
