Dear Sir/Madam, I have a 12 years old Goodman split AC. Recently the blower in the air handler was not starting sometimes. I changed the capacitor, but the problem is still there. I guess that the fan relay switch may be bad. Where can I find the fan relay switch for Goodman center AC? The model no for air handler is AW24-05c, the serial no is 9904464660. You help will be much appreciated. Thanks, Sherman

I have a Duo-Therm Penguin model#610115405 that cools and the fan changes speed(slower) when the room gets cooled and the compressor kicks out, but the fan will not shut down.I have the same unit fwd in my RV that works fine. I tried switching the thermostat,ptcr relay and the capacitor that is below the ptcr. Any other suggestions ? Dont see anything that else that I can easily switch to check.Still not shutting down?


Hi,\015\012the relay that is suppling the power to the fan is welded shut and is not opening. This often happens with relays, the contacts get pitted and then they heat up and weld fast. The relays that run the fan faster and slower are still w ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

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.

Have a Grand Aire Central Air and Heating unit a/heat pump...has been working fine. Switched it over to heat and nothing came on.

How do I wire a fan motor and the two associated capacitors to make it run? I was given a Hunter Model 26136 ceiling fan motor and the two capacitors that came with it: 1st a two wire (red & black) 5F 250vac VCE 74132-01 and 2nd a four wire (green, brown and two gray wires) GY 5GR 5B 250 VAC VCE74133-01. Also I know I need to buy a 3 speed switch. I have no idea how to wire the motor, capacitors and switch together. John Bierke

Indoor fan motor continue to run even if the thermostat is in auto position with the cool and heat switch in the off position. The furnance don't have a fan on and off switch in the furnance like most. The only way to turn the fan motor off is to turn off thr high power switch. I change indoor fan relay but the problem still exist.


Try this, disconnect the fanwire (green) on the furnace, if it shuts off then the hot wire from the thermostat is touching the green wire or bad thermostat. Thank-you-very-much! ... Intertherm Air Conditioners

I have a Coleman Evcon gas furnace model# DGAT095ADA last year I replaced the T-O-D #60T82 - 313675 fan switch and works fine. This year the unit started fine, but slowly started taking longer & longer to heat up, then finally not heating up enough to trip fan switch. Manually tripping fan switch resulted in some warm air through system, but not enough to heat a house. Gas comes on and is blue what would be my next course of action ?

I have dimmer switch controlled ceiling fan. What happens is the dimmer switch seems to works for a few weeks. Then it doesn't behave like a dimmer, but only as a switch - meaning that the fan gets on only at the maximum position of the dimmer. If dimmer is even slightly lowered from the maximum position, the fan gets off. This happened to a previous dimmer also and I have changed to a new one - but still same problem. What could be the cause?

I have a U-42 Janitrol gas furnace that will not start the exaust fan nor will it light the burner but the blower fan will come on. I have two identical units. I've swaped the exaust fans and the unit that was working strarted the other exaust fan - put the known working fan in the non-working unit and it still didn't come on. I switched the thermostats and still no positive results. Any suggestions?

I have an intertherm central air unit in my mobile home that does not change fan speed when I click the fan speed switch. I've checked the fan relay which is good and energized in the ac mode which should put the speed switch in the circuit. It is a PSC fan motor and I haven't checked the capacitor.

I have a Dometic 579 Series Brisk Air AC. The model Number is 57915.531. When I turn the fan on, nothing happens. If I reach up and turn the wheel blower the fan will start up and everything works.

Blower fan stays running. Fan relay attached to small circuit board (coil tabs [timer?]). Capacitor on small circuit board had ''fallen out'' of ic board. Tried to get replacement board, and was sold just a standard relay - told that relay alone replaced the previous relay -and- circuit board configuration (?). Problem still exists (no change). Also changed thermostat just to eliminate as a possible cause, but seems like problem must be in the fan relay area. Question about the wires attache

I have a horizontal magic chef gas heat/cool furnace (circa 1980) located in the attic. In the summer with the thermostat off and the fan switch on off, the fan on the unit will turn on all by itself when the attic temperature reaches around 100 degrees thus blowing warm air into the building. I have changed the thermost with same result. This fan is getting power from someplace. Nothing is on the wiring diagram showing a temperature switch on the unit. Where should I look to find what is cau

I have an Amana a/c unit and the compressor outside keeps stopping however the fan goes on. The a/c service guys have been to my house 3 times and the wires each time were burnt. The last time they change the capacitor and and new heavier guage wires and it lasted for about a month. When trying to turn iton now I am back to the same situation. Do you think I should I go for a compressor or change the unit ? It is a 4 ton model BBC60a2A and the outside unit model number is RCE42A2A . Thanks

Hello I have an LG window unit, model LWHD8000RY6 I hooked it up yesterday after having it in storage for the winter- dry, clean storage in my basement. It worked for about 2 hours, then the compressor turned off. The fan still runs, all of the display lights & switches function. I can hear the compressor trying to turn on, but it gives a quiet click-hum and then stops. The fan is still running, but no cold air. Any ideas?

I have a LUX TX9000LC control, connected to a Carrier Model 394GA036100. The controls don't seem to control the furnace or air conditioning. The fan on the furnace runs continuously even when the switch on the control is in the off position. The only way I can turn the fan off on the furnace is to switch off the power to it. I put new batteries in the TX9000LC. No change. Thank you, Ron Casto

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.

I have a 2002 year model trailer, it has a Duo Therm Quick Cool High Efficiency by Dometic. Because the fan motor would not start by itself, it popped the breaker after a couple minutes the first time I turned it on this year. I took the top off the unit and give the fan a little spin and it would then run. Once again after a few minutes the breaker popped. I changed the capacitor for the fan but it does the same thing. Could it be the armature in the motor causing the problem? Any sug
