  • Is the fan by the compressor running?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no. the fan is off
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

That is why it is overheating and it needs to be corrected quickly or the heat is going to cause damage to the compressor. Do you have a small fan you can place to blow up there?

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

Also, if you manually spin the fan blade, does it try to run by itself?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I manually spun the fan and is working but makes noise.
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

Excellent! So would you like to replace that fan yourself? It would save you about $200 or more rather than calling for service!

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

The motor just unplugs and plugs in and is pretty easy to replace!

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I would rather have someone come out and fix it.
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

I totally understand. If you provide your zip code, I can get you a servicer referral.
