Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Blower fan motor wont start on carrier package unit air conditioner I have a Carrier 50ZPA042-301TP package unit

\015 The blower fan that blows air into the house stopped running. The Compressor turns on fine but the blower fan never comes on. I have done and\\or replaced the following: - Start capacitor - Main Circuit board - Tried an identical motor fan that I know works and that motor did not come on. - Accidentally crossed the wires on the capacitor and saw that the motor fan turned on when testing. - Checked the fuse on the circuit board. Any ideas? A bad relay somewhere?\015

The fan on my Carrier central air conditioner a/c model 38ER036300 does not move when the compressor kicks on. The unit will heat up and then will start. It also will start when I give it a small push. The 30 amp circuit breaker will also vibrate for about 4 seconds and then will be fine. Should the fan blade move freely when the unit is off? It seems to have resistance. Does it need lubrcation or is it a sealed bearing?

Hello YES the blades have to move freely.If it has oil ports look on the side of the motor for a YELLOW plastic plug/cap there are 2 one at the top & one at the bottom.Pry them off/loosen with a small screwdriver & squirt #20 oil in the holes ... Carrier 38BRC060 Air Conditioner

My Fujitsu Converter Air conditioner is not working... The Green light is flashing 13 times - the red light flashes continuously very quickly. The fan does not commence at all and therefore no heat or cool air comes from the conditioner at present. Also, once I press the start button on the remote control unit and the light being to flash, I am then unable to stop the unit - even after pushing the start/stop button - the lights continue to flash. Is there something I can do to make the air c

Hi, this is an odd voltage 380 volts. Is it a 3 phase unit? To get a 220 volt 50hz condenser fan motor, you will have to go through a refrigeration/air conditioning parts house and order this. 60hz you would have no problem finding one in stock. Carr ... Carrier Air Conditioners

I have a Friedrich 13,500 BTU WallMaster. The air conditioner stops generating cold air and seems to use the fan only on a regular basis. The front panel shows that the unit is still in cooling mode but the the unit just blows out warm air no matter how low I set the temperature. Then out of nowhere the unit will start cooling again. I know the problem is not the filter. Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you.

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

Have a problem with my Intertherm air conditioner not coming on so I put a new thermostat on it. Nothing comes on fan nor heat nor air. I reset the breaker but still nothing and the unit model is a E1eb015ha? Anyone know if there is a reset button on the unit or where I can start looking to see if there is a problem.

Turn the thermostat off and check for 24vac between R and C on the thermostat. If there is no C then to G or W. If you don't have 24vac go the transformer and check for 24vac on the secondary. If it isn't there then check for 120vac on the transforme ... Intertherm P3RA-048K Air Conditioner

My air conditioner is blowing warm air in the house and cool air outside. The fan outside was stuck and not spinning so I gave it a nudge to get it started now the unit seems to be running in reverse.

You will need to replace the fan motor. Basically when the system starts running in reverse the fan motor is shot, and the electrical is telling to motor to spin one way but since the winnings are shot then are making the motor spin the opposite dire ... Whirlwind FH-778 Air Conditioner

When calling for cold air, the fan in the cooling unit hums, but does not spin. With a nudge, the fan does spin. Looks to be smooth and normal speed. However ambient outside air 80 degrees. the air through the register is 72 degrees. Is there a switch that will not allow the fan to start on its own if the coolant is too low? Do I have two problems, fan starting AND insufficient cooling? Unit worked well the last two days.

I have a Carrier Air V air conditioner on which the compressor won't start. You can hear it try repeatedly, but no luck. The fan does work.


My air conditioner stops cooling. Occasionally, it will just function on fan mode even though I confirm that it is on cool mode. Warm air comes out even on the absolute coldest setting. I have to turn it off and use the manual reset button on the plug to get it to work properly. The problem started after the unit iced up one night and it hasn't worked right since. Is there any way to fix this or am I gonna have to get a new AC?
