Why Is the AC Fan Not Working?

AC FanAC fan not working. Before you get frustrated and stick your head in the freezer to get some relief, the experts here at Western Heating & Air are here to help you get to the root of the problem.

The Simple Solution

One reason that your AC fan may have stopped spinning is that it might be a little stiff. Try using a stick to give the belt a little tap to see if that will do the trick. Hopefully it will start up right away and keep working from then on. If it doesn’t, you might have a more serious problem on your hands.

Flip a Switch

The next thing you can try is to turn your air conditioner off for a few minutes before you restart it. Overheating can lead to your AC fan not working. If this doesn’t do the trick, there’s a chance that your fan simply isn’t getting enough power. Check the service panel located on the side of the AC unit and use a multi-meter to ensure there is a constant stream of electricity going to the device. If the fan is getting power, then the problem might simply be the fan itself. Try replacing the fan and possibly even the belt to see if that will take care of things.

In the event that there isn’t enough electricity going to the fan, check to see if all of the other parts are lined up properly. Don’t hesitate to call in a professional Orem, UT HVAC repair company if need be. Western Heating & Air is here if you ever discover your AC fan not working. Get in touch with us today if your unit is in need of preventative maintenance for the upcoming summer season.

Tyler and Carter were efficient, helpful, and courteous. They walked us through our new system and explained everything so we could use and maintain the system after they left. Great experience!

Brady and LT (and the entire Western Heating & Air Team) have been amazing through a less than ideal scenario. Our outdoor unit with our ductless system was having issues and completely went down on two occasions. Once they figured out the issue, they got a warranty claim in process and quickly got the new unit installed (Brady and LT are true professionals and pros at what they do). Our family feels in good hands with Western Heating and Air, and appreciate all the compassion and hard work to help us through this less than ideal scenario with the problems we had with the outdoor unit. THANK YOU!
