My name is Woody.
I`m sorry to hear that your having issues!
I will do my best to take the information that you provide to me and make a Diagnosis for you to be able to repair your own Appliance.

Do you have a Volt-Ohm meter and know how to use it? to be able to do any component or voltage testing

The first thing I would do is to check the voltage to the fan it is 120 volts A/C and when the unit is in a cooling mode the fan should be receiving constant voltage.

Then we can go from there!
