When my heat pump comes on the outside condenser fan will initially
run for 30 seconds then it will shut off. Once the blades stop
spinning it will start up again. Then it will shut off after 20
seconds. This cycle keeps repeating. What would cause the fan for the
condenser to stop and start repeatedly?
Thanks for the help.
Im no heat pro, Ive told you that 100 times, I never installed a heat
unit but I think I changed a thermocuple on a furnace, a pump on a
boiler, and lots of vents, I put in a few water heaters. But its just
like you, you brag your a 30yr pro and dont help this poor old fella,
go back to althvac, I guess you really dont know the answer mr 30yr
Exactly as I thought. Havent a clue, eh ransley?
Hey ransley, tell me this:
Why would I tell someone how to exactly repair their unit on the
internet when I do that everyday and get paid for it? Doenst make a
whole lot of sense.
Think of this: I live in a relatively small town (30,000?) What do you
think would happen if all of a sudden some retired guy from this
business got on the internet and started telling everyone in my city
how to repair/replace their units and he did it all for free? News
would spread like wild fire and he would be busy as hell.
Doesnt make a whole lot of sense to me as someone in the trade.
You arent too bright, are you?
On the other hand I do have a PayPal account and would be happy to
give expert advice for a fee. (Not you though, ransley. I know you are
The point of the group is helping, and learning. You could have help
this guy in the same time you posted. Maybe he was your neighbor and
you didnt know it. If it was all about money you would not be here at

I am no expert like the other guys :-), but it sounds like something
is overheating. If you know anything about electric, dis-connect the
wires that go to the compressor, make sure they aren't touching
anything, then turn the pump on and see if it does the same thing. If
it doesn't, tehn your pump is probably shot because the bi-metalic cut-
off switch is activating/deactivating power. If it still coninues to
re-cycle, get out your meter and trace it down.
