Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Purchased a fedders a/c 18000 unit still under warranty. called the 800# they said company had filed bankruptcy and were not responsible for repairs. 350$ mistake. Fan runs too slow for unit to kick in. Fan will pick up speed some times when you turn it on, will start to blow cold air but only runs for a couple of minutes before fan stops turning.


Answers :

Check the capacitor for the fan motor. You can do that with a multimeter with the capacitor test function or if the capacitor looks swollen then it is probably bad. Also, make sure the fan rotates freely by hand. Let me know if you need more help.

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.

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.
