Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

How do I remove the blower assembly on a Bryant 394gaw? Blower doesn't want to start turning by itself - can get it to go by giving the fins a push when it hums, and when it gets up to speed it has a slight thumping sound (balance?).

Replace capacitor and try.

I have a Ruud 90% furnace (18 yrs.old) Several days ago, I had a complete ice-over of the evaporator coil. Filters are clean, and airflow unrestricted. After defrosting coil (48 hrs.) while testing, I note that the blower only runs for 30-45 sec. before shutting down. When I set the stat to "fan on", it does the same thing. It seems to me that the blower never gets up enough speed (might be my imagination). I'm assuming that the problem is not in my stat or wiring. Does this sound more like a pr

The motor shutting off after 30-45 seconds means it is probably getting hot and shutting off on thermo overload safety in motor. Two things can cause this: #1 is the motor is defective. #2 the run capacitor has gone bad. If you want to try and save ... Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner

I have a Carrier Model# FA4BNF048, It just started making rattling noise and a thump sound like a car intake, the system is still cooling fine, its just the noise that is bothering us. I managed to get the cover off to listen carefully to the noise, that seems to be coming from the blower motor, I took it of with a few just bolts and wire diconnects, to ensure there were no loose parts in there, which I did not see or felt any. The system seems to be cooling still, but the noise after the au

Hi\015\012\015\012If your air conditioner is making a rattling noise, your fan is probably loose. Open it up and tighten the screw that is located in the center of the fan. You can also try a piece of plywood or Plexiglas that sits betwee ... Air Conditioners

The fan on outdoor unit sometimes starts normally, sometimes starts slowly and will get up to speed with a push or sometimes will not start at all. Loud hum when slow or stopped. Cools normally when it will start. Have replace capacitor. Any ideas?


We have Vogelzang Norseman 2500 add on furnace with 2 blowers in the back. first of all, the 1 blower started making a humming noise and then eventually just seized up. We have that blower unattached. But now we're finding out that 1 blower is not enough & stove is getting TOO hot & we have to close damper to keep it cooler. and I was just wondering if anybody thinks this is a capacitor out something else? Getting VERY nervous!!

BLOWER NOISE Carrier Weathermaker 8000 works fine but when shutting down the blower makes a slight sound. Sounds like tapping the bottom of an empty plastic liter pop bottle. Can the blower be lubricated or oiled? Thanks

Could be a loose blower wheel. It has slipped and touching the sides of the blower housing.\015\012Turn off the power to the nit.\015\012Remove the 2 bolts holding the blower in place.\015\012Make yourself a wiring schematic.\ ... Carrier XHB123D X/Y Series Heat/Cool Air Conditioner

My Goodman GMP100-4 blower fan runs slower than the second unit. The blower did not start when I turned the A/C or furnace on. However, if gave it a push (spin) from the side, it started turning, but at a slower speed. hardly any air blows from vent. Will capacitor replacement solve the problem? Is slow speed also due to capacitor?

Replaced capacitor and cleaned filter. Problem solved. ... Goodman Air Conditioners

My heater is not working. When the thermostat is placed in HEAT mode, it sounds like the blower is kicking on - but then it shuts down a minute later. I looked in the unit in the attic, and I can see that what appears to be a small blower kicks on (a black circular wheel starts spinning) but then I do not ever get a spark - it just all shuts down. Is there something I can check myself (pressure switch, fuse, etc) with a simple multi-meter before having to get a service man?

Yes. First go into the attic and look thru the the inspection hole in your furnace. It is a small hole with a glass cover you can look thru. Therer will be blinking light inside. The numrer of blinks tell you that what the problem is. Example three b ... Weather King 12AJA4801AH Air Conditioner

48xp my carrier 48xp-060090311, has a slow down mode with blower to keep blowing after compressor shuts off. It suppose to slows down and keep blowing at a slower speed so as to save money by having air blow across coils. It does not slow down now and compressor stays on for long time. Some times it gets warm other times I have to raise temp. to get unit to shut as it gets too cold.

Have a Payne pg8uaa furnace. Furnace only works when I run a jumper between R and W. Replace wiring to furnace. I suspect that the outside blower motor is the problem. When furnace is running the blower motor has a humming sound but does not blow air. At this point, I would like to know how you would diagnose a Tjernlund HSUL-J blower motor. Should the motor itself be replaced or should the fan prover be replaced?

You would have to test the motor as well as the capacitor on the motor capacitor goes for alot less then the motor though.here is the pdf manual on your blower h ... Air Conditioners

The motor was making a humming sound, we stuck a screw driver in the unit to get the blades moving again it worked for a minute and now the blades aren't moving and we don't hear the hummming sound, there is still air coming through the vents it just isn't cold


Once you turn on aircon with fan with high speed, the air blown doesn't get cold even after a while. The fan makes some wierd high pitch sound as if like metal against each other. The fan stops once in a while and makes that same sound once it start turning again. This goes cyclic through out the time it is turned on but not cooling the air from the aircon.

Your AC needs a good overhauling as the fan seems struck on the bearings or the blades are rubbing the sides. Also the compressor fails to cool as there can be low gas, low pumping pressure or a blocked condenser.\012You need to remove clean th ... Air Conditioners

I have a ruud model no. ubhc-17j11nfd and i am having a problem with my heat. when the heat does come on, the thermostat says it is on auxilary heat. the blower in the inside unit does not run. i changed the capacitor and now i get a really loud humming noise. the motor still does not spin. but when i spin the motor by hand then it seems to work fine.(the humming goes away) this happens every time when the heat goes off then back on. the only way to solve this is to keep the fan on constantly.

Make sure to check and see if you do not have any bare wires touch ground or if you have any wires pinched causing a short to ground. Safety first so turn of power before checking. Also check to see if any wires on unit are touching one another. Hope ... Air Conditioners

I have a Carrier 8000 weathermaker. Recently the blower motor began to run progressively slower and finally just bogged down. I replaced the motor, but the replacement motor has three speeds (red, blue and black wires) whereas the old motor had four (red, blue, black and yellow). Initially I hooked the new motor wires up to the circuit board the same way the old ones were, leaving an open spot where the old yellow wire was. New motor works, but at lower speeds, pushing less cool air. We liv

I have an Amana model number pgb 30c09020. It quit working about a month ago and if you pushed on the fan on the combustion blower, it would come on and work for a while. They got the code and replaced the combustion blower. It worked a week or two and then it started going off. When it gets to the temperature, it kicks off and will not come back on. If you flip the breaker off and back on, it will come on. Also, if you leave the door off the flame will stay lit. If you put the door back on it,

Carrier 38ckc036 fan will not run all you get is a loud humming sound. You can sometimes get the fan to run if you assist it with a stick but then it stops running after a few minutes
