Every AC has a blower motor that’s part of the condenser unit. When you turn on your AC, the blower moves air over the coils to produce cold air and push it into your home. Though you may not know the signs of a failing blower motor, it’s a good idea to learn about these signs and look out for them in your Simpsonville, SC home.
Fan is Malfunctioning
The biggest sign that your AC’s blower motor is failing is when you notice that it no longer works as it should. It may completely fail to work when you turn on the AC. Another issue that occurs is when the fan keeps running and won’t shut off when you turn off the AC.
AC Shuts Down
Another sign that the blower motor is on the fritz is when the AC doesn’t run like you expect it to run. In most cases, the AC will run for a little bit and then turn itself off. This often happens when the motor overheats.
Whether your Simpsonville home has ducts or vents, you expect to feel cold air coming from them when you run your air conditioner. If you think your motor blower is on the fritz, turn on the AC and stand in front of the nearest vent or duct. There’s a good chance you have a problem with the blower motor if there’s no air coming through the vents or less air than you should feel.
Repairing an AC blower motor is the best way to ensure that you get all of the cool air you want and need around your Simpsonville home. Don’t waste a lot of time trying to diagnose the problem on your own or looking for a solution.
