Blower motor in home air conditioner does not work

\015 The blower motor for the furnace and air conditioner does not run. The outside compressor runs.\015

Answers :

The most common failure for this problem is either the start/run capacitor or the fan motor. IF YOU ARE NOT experienced with electricity then I would strongly suggest hiring a technician. The volts are 220 with a potential of 50 amps in a common residential unit.

If you are knowledgeable in this area then make sure the motor has volts to it. If it does have volts and does not spin, it is bad. You can sometimes tell by feeling the motor it will probably be very hot. The compressor will eventually shut itself off when it over heats. It usually will restart after it cools down(sometimes many hours). The motor and capacitor are pretty generic and can be matched up at a local Grainger store or whatever Retail, specialty store that you have in your area.

I hope this helps:)

Hello, We bought a Perry Home in Georgetown TX last March and it is still under its two year warranty. Our air conditioner stopped cooling today. It has been working well for over 1 year. We came home from work and the temperature is 86F inside and climbing. My wife left the house at noon and the temp was 76F (where we keep the thermostat in the summer). The Air conditioner outside unit's fan is operating and no noise. The inside blower is running normal - no problem. The model number on the o


You have a 10 year warranty on your AC. Call a Goodman rep and have it serviced. It will probably be a bad compressor capacitor. Bad wire or no refrigerant. ... Goodman Air Conditioners

Just bought a used 1987 Real-Lite truck camper. The roof air unit is Dometic as well as the LP/AC refrigerator. When turned to "cool" the air conditioner really draws down, dims the lights, and eventually blows the home AC breakers. It works fine on blower fan only but as soon as I engage the "cool" settings, big brown out. The fridge doesn't work at all. I'm in the Nashville area. Suggestions


To start with, if it's plugged in to a 15 amp breaker, and extension cord, the compressor starting up may just be enough to trip the breaker. It will draw close to 15 amps on start-up of compressor, and if there is a light extension cord used to plug ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

I have a wall mounted Kenmore 21,000 BTU/hr air conditioner model 106.8752192. The compressor and cooling portion of the air conditoner works fine. However, the blower motor bearing appears to be going bad. The noise at ''LO'' speed with the compressor off is gradually getting worse. Is it repairable? What is the estimated repair cost?


Sure it is repairable, in fact it's a relatively simple process if you are familiar with electronic devices and handy with tools.\015\012\015\012You will need to simply replace the blower motor and capacitor.\015\012\015\012Mo ... Air Conditioners

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

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

Hi, just replaced the capacitor thinking that would solve the problem but it appears it did not. The motor outside would kick on the unit inside would kick on but the blower motor inside works sometimes and wont other times. Basically, the unit will work just fine all day then we notice the house is getting warm, check the inside unit and everything is running fine but the blower motor is not circulating the air. I have a goodman a30-10 unit. I read where some people said the relay could be bad

Where can I find a manual for my coleman cam II central air conditioner for a mobile home? I recently purchased the mobile home and would like to know what steps to ntake to make it work at its best. Also, I find it puzzling that the air filter is set on top of the unit inside the mobile home. It looks to my limited knowledge of central air, as if someone set the filter on top of the unit because they did'nt know the correct location placement. Can you provide any comments or advice? Thanks

Hi I have got adouble storey house. I have moved into the house this year. My Fujitsu ducted air conditioner is not cooling well. I think the blowers are too slow. My model number is AOT60RPAGT. Cooling in downstairs is ok but upstairs in the bedrooms it is not good. When I put my hand close to the vents I can feel a bit of cold air but I think the blower is too slow. I have selected blower speed to max on the control panel but still it doesn't work satisfactory. Please advise. Thanks

My carrier air conditioner is not working. We have two exterior units. One for upstairs (smaller) and one for the downstairs(larger unit). That being said we have two seperate thermostats inside our home. The upstairs unit is working fine. The downstairs thermostat shows on Auto that the unit should be kicking on based on the temp. However, the outdoor unit for downstairs is not working. So far I have checked the downstairs vents and they are blowing air although not very cool. I also tu

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
