Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Air conditioner serviceman says fan needs replacing and will cost $900-$1000 seems expensive for a 25 year old air-con. Do you have a service manual and a rough idea what a new fan would cost as Im a handy guy. Gazza from australia.


Answers :

I agree, here in mid south US i would typically charge about a 120$ labor and around 200$ for a typical blower and cleaning and service materials. 900$ seems high i would get a second opinion, theres always the possibility that there is some additional cost that we are not aware of, service difficulty such as unit location, travel time and so on.
Go to any BOC Gases outlet and view their range of aircon fans. Depending on model $100 to $200. Fans are not an expensive item.
Allow an hour or two of labour (in case there are problems)

I just installed a new hampton bay ultura 68" ceiling fan and the unit is only controlled by a remote control. The reverse function does not work and the fan only runs in one direction which happens to be the winter direction pulling air up towards the ceiling. I desperately need to reverse the motor rotation to push air down to cool the room off. Any ideas?


After researching the complaints on this product I found that the reverse mode can be intermittent, the high speed can be slow at best and the returns of this product back to the store are staggering. Get a new but different model. ... Air Conditioners

Hi,There might be ONLY 2 reasons for it. They are low on freon and lack of air flow. An air conditioner that is not cleaned and serviced can have the A coil get blocked or even the blower fan. Once the AC has defrosted it should be safe t ... Air Conditioners

My E.G. Air Cond.Compressor/condenser fan motor was replaced because it burnt; I replaced it with an O. Smith Electric Fan Motor. I also changed the capacitor. The new fan motor runs full speed for about 10 minutes and stops while the compressor is still runing. I need help to assure I have it wired corectly. I may need a manual which I do not have.


These motors have a wiring diagram on the motor. Make sure you don't have two different speeds connected together. ... Air Conditioners

My coleman Mach Rv air conditioner with built in heat strip keeps tripping it's internal circuit breaker when running for any length of time. Just replaced heat strip with new one experienced same issue. I ended up with the fan continuing to run but only cold air comes out of the vents!

We have a Yonan Split air conditioner and there is a fault code of E4. Now it blows air nor hot or cold. I am trying to confirm whether it is a lack of gas or no gas at all.

My air conditioner stops cooling. Occasionally, it will just function on fan mode even though I confirm that it is on cool mode. Warm air comes out even on the absolute coldest setting. I have to turn it off and use the manual reset button on the plug to get it to work properly. The problem started after the unit iced up one night and it hasn't worked right since. Is there any way to fix this or am I gonna have to get a new AC?


If after reset the A/C cools then the fault seems related to the thermostat or the cut off pressure switch or load cut off.\012However is there is no cooling at all the compressor and the gas pressure- check for leak if gas is absent.- must be ... LG ZW6500R Air Conditioner

But there is a rattling-pinging sound coming from the smaller of the two cylinders inside the outside fan unit. Compressor??

There's a Frigidaire heating and cooling unit in the attic, and the thermostat is a White Rodgers (programmable). Air is blowing, but it is not HOT, though the thermostat is set at a high temperature. I have turned the switch to OFF, but the fan continues to blow. There is another compartment (as the heater lies on its side) that indicates that it's to only be open for servicing. I'm think that there is some sort of RESET button needed. Recently, new insulation was added to the attic.


Unless you have and oil fired furnace, there is not a "reset" button. Most likely, the problem will need to be investigated and addressed by a qualified service technician due to the general complexity of HVAC equipment and a plethera of different p ... Air Conditioners

I have a Sta Rite Max E Therm pool heater and when I start the unit, the fan kicks on but the heater never does. After 45 seconds or so, I get a " Service Heater" light. The circuit board had leds for limit switch, pressure switch, air sensors, etc, but none are lit. The ignition contol module has a blinking red led which the manual says is a "ignition lockout" issue. What is an ignition lockout? Do I need to replace the HSI Ignitor? Or could it be something other than ignitor? Thanks

My Sharp CV-P12PX air conditioner seems to have a vibration / noise problem with some insulation and/or the fan. The unit is brand new and is the second one as I had the first replaced for the same problem. Tilting the unit solves the noise problem but of course that is not a final or proper solution.
