Turn on AC and see if the fan or compressor tries to start. Russ
AC is on and I only got a very quick buzz when I spun the fan by hand.
Open access panel and check capacitor.(silver canister). See if it is puffy on top. If so cjange capacitor. Common problem.Russ
I went outside to check for an access panel and the unit was humming. After about a minute it stopped. The fan was not turning. Is the access panel the only side of the unit that does not have coils visible?
I have the panel off and see 2 red flashing lights that are on a circuit board and are labeled LED1 and LED2. While looking the unit sounded like it tried to start again.
I have taken photos of the unit with the panel off. I'm not sure what the capacitr is in the first photo.
Did I get dropped out of the conversation? There has been no response since about 8:30 last night.
Russ.......thanks for all of your help! Gary
The fan on the outside unit is not running. I can spin it easily by hand.
