Customer Question
I just installed a...

I just installed a new Amana PTAC unit and everything seems to be working except it is not blowing any air. The back vent door is open for outside air and the fan is circulating.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

Filters are fine, I put the unit on cool and still nothing.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not really.

I just removed a from metal screening and there is a long cylindrical fan which moves if I manually spin it but when I put the unit on, nothing happens.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
It looks like the long cylindrical part is the blower wheel.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
It appears that the blower wheel is getting hung up on something, it starts to turn and then stops.

Hello, the unit is defective, repairs on your end will void the warranty... most likely problem is a bad printed circuit board.
