What To Do When Your Air Conditioner Fan Is Not Working
When dealing with fan issues, the smart thing to do is to rule out potential causes, starting from the most elemental. This way, you’ll be able to pinpoint the origin of the problem and determine if you can solve it yourself or if you need to call a technician.
If the fan stops working, first take a look at the thermostat. Having the wrong settings (for example, if the thermostat is set for heating instead of cooling) may cause the fan to stop working. In that case, the solution can be as simple as adjusting the configuration of your thermostat.
Change Your Filters
Clogged filters can cause all types of malfunctions, such as creating the sensation that the fan isn’t working. Before deciding that your fan is broken, take a look at the filters and change them if necessary.
Check the Circuit Breaker
Tripped circuit breakers are another common reason why your fan might stop working. Take a look at the breakers, and if one is tripped, switch the circuit breaker back on and see what happens. If the circuit breaker trips again after resetting it, you need to call a qualified HVAC professional.
A Faulty Capacitor
If none of the above helps fix the problem, then chances are good that your fan isn’t working due to a faulty electrical component. If this is the case, the most common reason is a bad or old capacitor that needs replacing. As is always the case with the electrical components of your AC, this is a task for a trained AC professional.
