Fan Motor Replacement
Sometimes an air conditioning unit can break and it can cause a lot of stress. Sometimes you may not need to replace the whole unit. When you hire a professional AC repair Daytona Beach expert to fix your unit, they can make sure that it's not the unit that is broken, but possibly the motor or fan is broken. Some common signs that your fan or motor is broken are:
The fan won't start even with the AC turned on
The fan is on but rotating extremely slow
The fan runs when the AC is turned off
The fan runs intermittently
When the fan is turned on, there is a rattling or buzzing noise
These can all be signs that something is wrong with your air conditioning unit. If the fan won't start even when you turn on your AC that could mean that something is wrong with the motor. When this happens it can freeze your evaporator coils which can cause serious damage to your unit. When this happens you'll want to call your HVAC Daytona experts immediately.
When your fan is on but moving slow, it could mean that the bearings need to be oiled or something more serious is happening. If there are different speed settings on your unit for your fan, check those to make sure it is on the accurate speed.
If the fan is running while the AC is off, this could be as simple as replacing the thermostat. If the thermostat is not the issue then it is probably a relay switch.
If the fan is running intermittently it could be a couple of problems. One is overheating, or a loose wire. Those two things should be handled by an expert AC repair Daytona professional otherwise you could do more harm than good.
Lastly when the fan is turned on and you hear a buzzing or rattling noise this issue could be minor like debris getting into the AC unit. Or it could be motor reaching the end of its life. Either way a professional HVAC technician should take a look so that you are not creating more damage and you can have peace of mind that everything was fixed properly.
Our HVAC technicians will do a few things when checking a fan or motor. First they will conduct a visual inspection. Then they will check the condenser's unit temperature to rule out an overheating motor. They will also attempt to kickstart the motor to see if that works and if not our experts will check the capacitor. Checking the capacitor will allow us to tell if your fan motor is getting the boost of energy it needs to operate normally and efficiently. They will also check the electrical wiring to see if there is a short somewhere. Once they have analyzed the unit and found the issue, they will begin working and fixing the problem. Our technicians are the best in the business and you can count on them to get the job done right.
