Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

RV ac fan runs backwards (blows out air on top of RV.) Runs correctly sometimes but after it satisfies and clicks off when it kicks back on, it runs backwards. The only thing that will turn it back around is to turn off unit and wait for around 30 minutes and turn back on. (won't reverse motion very quickly) Spoke to Coleman expert and was told it is the fan capacitor. Need instructions to identify and change the capacitor. Would like to fix myself since this will be the 3rd time to have it i

Hi, this is strange as I have never heard of this either!!! The capacitor is located by the motor and sometimes clamped to the motor. They can be the shape of a very small can, oval 3" tall with 2 leads on top with wires coming off the terminals. It could be chrome in color, or made of hard plastic. It may have 3 terminals on top, with several spade connectors on it.When you find it, mark all wires and draw a picture or you will not remember how it hooked up.Try and get the same one. Keep me posted and I can help if you need more. Strange thing going on here??

Turn it to the fan only side and the fan will run for 5 min then shut off a min later it comes back on then back off and on in fan only side.

I have a goodman gsc13 ac unit about 4 year old. When the temp gets around 90 or above outside the fan on the unit starts but the compressor does not. I had service check it out but that day they were here it was in the 80's and it worked fine. I replace the thermostat to make sure that wasn't the problem. Interesting if I turn the unit off at the thermostat and wait 15 minutes and turn it back on it will run fine. But the next time it tries to turn on automaitcally it will just be the fan o

My 38CKCK24330 Unit stopped running, it will try and turn on every 10 or 15 mins you can here it outside buzz, I looked outside at the unit and the fan is not running. The system has power, the breaker switches are working, the furnace turns on fromt he attic.

I did this but the fan did not turn on. Any help would be appreciated it, I


Hi angelagaddy,With the fan not running and you are hearing a buzzing noise outside this is more likely that the fan motor needs to be replaced or the capacitor ... Air Conditioners

I have a Sanyo Split System the indoor unit is a KHS0921 and the outdoor unit is a CH0921. When i first turn the indoor unit ON the fan will run for a few minutes and then go off. The outdoor unit never comes ON when there is a cll for cooling. The only way to get the fan to come ON again is to turn the breaker OFF and then back ON. The Operation loght will come ON when the fan is running but it will start flashing when the fan goes OFF. What should i look for?

Outside fan not running, inside unit running fine. Compressor was running this morning, but no longer. Replaced fan motor, turned power back on, now fan or compressor not running. What else can be checked?


Hi,\012There may be a manual reset high limit... look for a red button on a round part hooked to the small copper line and push it in hard...\012Also the compressor may have kicked the overload and needs a few hours to cool and it reset, ... Goodman Air Conditioners

Goodman a/c j41 fan not running, turned off and on at fuse box, took a look at the box next to a/c unit and opened the box on the wall and pulled the plug and pulled the plastic panel off, there is no fuses. So i put back together and turned the a/c unit on, now at thermostat the snowflake is no longer flashing, some cold air coming out of vents, but outside a/c unit fan still does not run.


First you need to disconnect all power. Try spinning the fan blade, if it spins freely, then try moving the shaft from side to side to see if there's any side play. If not then the bearings are OK. If there seems to be some drag when your spinning th ... Goodman CKL42AR42 Air Conditioner

My unit is 4 years old. I always turn it off when I leave for work in the am and turn it back on when I get home in the pm. Last night I turned it on at 7:30pm. When I went to the front of the house about 45 minutes later, I noticed the unit outside was trying to turn on but would immediately turn off. I checked the breakers in the garage, turned them off and back on but still had the same problem. The fan inside the house is running but unit outside will not kick on. I looked for a magic

1996 Coleman Model 7333C8876. Have 2 units on our Motor Home one day it was hot so I had both units running controlled by a Electronic Climate Control system. It got cool in the evening so I turned them off. The next day when i fired them both up on high the rear was fine. But the front will only cool on Low. The fan will not run on high and you can hear a slight noise coming from the unit. But the fan will not run on high.

Conditioner fan runs but compresser shuts off after only a few minutes and doesnt turn back on.sometimes if i tap the side of the unit the compresser turns on but only to shut off later and not turn back on by itself. danby window model DAC5088M


From your description, seems like compressor is seizing when hot, tapping it shakes the piston loose then it seizes up again after a while. ... EMI EHW 18000 Air Conditioner

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

My central heating unit in house will not turn off. Thermostat sends signal when temp is reached but heat and fan keep running, I changed fan relay but no change, have to turn off breaker to get if to go off, when breaker is turned back on it is off as long as thermostat is at temp


Definately a relay - but i suspect inside the controller itself.Replace the thermostat(controller) unit.Thanks for using FixYA!! ... Air Conditioners

I have a Goodman Split Air Conditioner and the outside condenser fan was not working. relay tested ok breaker wasnt tripped, then discovered 1 leg of the 220 line was out. Replaced the breaker, cleaned the unit turned it on, cooled the house 2 degrees then it stopped working. Turned the stat off ,pulled the 220 block waited 10 minutes, turned it back on and it is currently running. Can the relay and/or start-run cap behave in this kind of intermitent way ?


Run cap may be badthumbs up ... Air Conditioners

Fan stops duotherm , the a/c runs great for around an hour then the fan stops and the compresser keeps going, turn it off for a while, then runs fine for a while and fan stops again.


The cooling fan for the condenser is probably running, getting hot and seizing up. Check to see if the fan is free spinning after it stops. Take a probe and try to spin it manually. If it turns freely, then it could be going bad with it's electrical ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

Turn the unit on, the fan runs, and when the compressor tries to start the fan slows down and the compressor will not run. After a few seconds the fan speeds back up. I put an amp meter on the compressor lead and when it tried to start I registeres 41 amps. Is this a compressor or capacitor problem?


Sounds like you have a bad capacitor, if it's not tripping the breaker it doesn't sound like the compressor is drawing LRA unless the breaker is oversized for the condenser. ... Air Conditioners

I have a Kenmore window air conditioner unit. It turns on, the motor runs, but the fan does not turn on, and the front gets cold to the touch. I have taken it out a couple times and cleaned it and that has no affect. It was jolted and then ran for a day and a half, then quit. Is there anything I can do to get it back running? Thanks for your input!


99% of the time when a motor just hums on a window A/C is the motor itself thats bad. Jump to test if work fine, if not, here, for your model you can order parts replacement: ... Kenmore Air Conditioners

RUDD Silhoette 2 model UGLH-10EBRJR ignitor won't ignite (glow). Exhaust fan comes on for about 30 sec. then the thing clicks, a small amount of gas emits then turns off, then the circulating fan comes in and runs cold for a while. I can light it manually 9with a lighter) and it runs OK until the house reaches temp but then, of course, it won't come back on unless I light it manually.


... Air Conditioners

Shutting off I have the AC on cool at 77F, one fan selected, and energy saver on. After it runs for a few hours, it shuts off but the display is still lit with the above settings. When I press the energy saver to turn it off, the AC comes back on. Alternatively, if I power the AC off (display is off) and power it back on, it runs normally (but don't know whether it shuts down again shortly). Any ideas? Should I reset it?


I would try the same solution as the E1 error code, Not sure if it will work, but it seems to be the same issue1. Power down the air conditioner using the "power" button on the front\015\012panel.\015\0122. Unplug the ai ... Sharp AF-S120FX Air Conditioner
