Hello, Thank you for using JA. Let me help you with your problem. The fan that was installed by the manufacturer is a air moving fan to move the heat produced by the unit. The sensor will sense the heat of the condenser ( the upper fins where it is attached ) and will run continuously as long as the fin is hot. And it will only be hot if the unit is demanding cooling. The fan is used to move air at the back of the unit. To suck warm air and replace it with fresh air ( probably form the bottom part) . The unit could have been installed inside a cabinet. The fan is used to cool down the condenser by moving the warm air out of the cabinet. The fan will only turn off if the set temperature inside is reached and the demand for cooling stop, hence the fins will stop heating up and will stop the fan from running. I hope I answered your question. If you still have inquiries, just post your reply here. Thank you for using JA.
