What Causes an Air Conditioner to Not Run?
When your air conditioner does not run, there can be a variety of reasons. Here is a brief list of common causes of an air conditioner fan to malfunction.
Defective Fan Motor– If your fan motor malfunctions, your air conditioner will not be able to run. A fan malfunction can be caused by a short in the wires, overuse, lack of maintenance and simply age.
Burned Wire– The wires that connect your fan motor to the air conditioner deliver power to the fan, allowing it to function. With improper installation, a power surge or a rodent chewing through a wire, your wires may burn and no longer function.
Defective Capacitor– The capacitor in your fan motor provides the power that your fan needs to start. If your capacitor is old, improperly installed or not maintained it will not deliver power to the fan.
