Default Compressor fan not working
Model Number: E1RC030S06D   Brand: -other-   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I live in Pensacola Florida. Woke up this morning and the house was very warm (83). Originally the compressor nor the compressor fan was coming on. I did some research on Google, and was thinking it was the contactor. It looks a little burnt on one end. I pushed it in and out a few times. Then put the fuse box back in and had my wife turn on the AC from inside while I watched the contactor. It moved as expected and now the compressor comes on but not the fan. I turned the fan blade with a stick and it moves freely. It is supposed to be over 100 today so it is going to be miserable if I cannot get it fixed. We bought the house new in May 2004 so the unit is a little over 10 years old. Any suggestions would be Greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
Dan

My son got in touch with his friend who came over. Very simple fix. He replaced the Capacitor. Part number is PRCFD355. Asked him how much I owed him. $60. Although I could have easily did that myself, I am very happy to pay $60 for someone to fix my AC on a Sunday afternoon!

I agree that the start cap is probably the issue. They can be tested with most digital multimeters set to the capactance setting. Many are dual caps and have 3 wires connected. 1 is a common lead to the 2 caps. that is a run cap and a start cap built into one housing.

easy fix if thats it

that model has a dual run cap. 35/5 MFD, 370 volt. round housing. They are easy to find . Should be under 20 bucks.
