Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

When I turn on the air conditioner (DeLonghi Pac L90) the fan blows but the coolant motor isn't kicking on.


Answers :

This could be a couple problems: A bad relay to the motor, a bad capacitor on the main board that feeds power to the motor, or the brushes inside the motor are stuck to the motor's armitron. Try lightly tapping all around the motor to see if it freezes up. If that don't help, test power to the motor and the relay with a multi-tester, voltmeter, or ohmmeter

Air conditioner runs for a few hours and it works - it cools the house. Then it stops cooling - the fan still runs but it doesn't blow out cool air any more. It seems like it's overheating or something. It will blow out cool air if it has not been turned on in a while but once it's on too long it stops. I was told it could be the fan motor and the a/c guy changed the fan motor today but that didn't fix the problem. Now he says it might be the compressor or that I need a new system. I'm jus

Great site. I have a Simplicity SPAC 8499-5 Portable Air Conditioner and it was working fine up until yesterday (~2 years old). The unit is running and the fan operational but while the green light for Cool/Dry is illuminated that actually cooling unit for the air conditioner is not kicking in. The system is just blowing air (like in Fan) mode. I have checked the water reservoir and it is empty and placed properly in the unit so the switch is engaged but no AC.

Air Conditioner was working fine last summer but outside fna not working. Not hearing any sound at all. I can move the fan amanually and it seems fine.

Hello i have Carrier Weathermaker 38tkb air conditioner unit. It's about 6 years old and when i got home today, the unit itself wasn't working. Although the blower fan in the furnace inside was blowing, the fan on the a/c unit outside was not moving. I can hear a humming sound coming from it and once in a while, you hear it trying to kick in (the lights in the house even dim a bit, which is unusual), but it never kicks in. The top center of the unit is extremely hot to the touch. I've checked


The humming noise and dimming of the lights is an indication something in the outdoor unit is locked up or has failed.Check the capacitor as it may have gone bad. If the capacitor is good, then you either have a failed motor, a failed co ... Air Conditioners

Sometimes, our furnace will start blowing cold air when it should be blowing hot...I know it is normal that it blows hot air and then will blow cool air as it cools to shut down.

I bought a haier electronic control air conditioner model HWR10XC6 on 6/30/08. I installed it. When I try to use the cool mode the air conditioner will only blow out cold air for about 5 - 10 minutes and then it just blows out regular air as if its on fan. I did what the manual said to do and it still continues to do this. I can't get it to blow out cold air for a longer period. Its getting really hot in here.

We are selling our house and have been leaving the air conditioner on for the last several days at 70. It has been keeping the house cool for visitors when we are at work. Yesterday I came home from work and the house was warm. I checked the air conditioner and it felt like it was blowing just air. Checked it throughout the night and still blowing just air, not cold anymore. I am thinking it ran out of coolant. I am not an expert or know anything about air conditioners. If you could give me your

I don't know if the motor is shot or what, but when you turn it on, it hums as though it's going to come on, but nothing blows out and nothing ever kicks on. Trying to decide if it's worth it to try to find someone to fix it (it's a casement window air conditioner, so it's not like we can replace it for $100), or whether we should just look into buying another.
