No Air Conditioner, Compressor Sounds, No Fan

Question: I am camping in the grand canyon, no service person available. My air conditioner has stopped working. It sounds like the compressor is coming on but the fan does not blow air. What can I do? I believe I have a 8530A345 or 8530-346 RVComfort.HP thermostat,1 stage Heat Pump.

Robbie: Your fan motor may be sitting on what is called a "flat spot." If you're very lucky you can get on the roof with a long screwdriver, have someone turn on the AC while your up there, now reach through the AC cover and turn (Flip or rotate) the fan blade. Be careful with the screwdriver. If you were lucky the fan will start up and your good to go. If this doesn't work you're going to have to find a service center.

Good Luck and be careful...

If you spin the blade and it comes on then more than likely you need a fan start capsitoy
