AC Blower Problem - PLEASE HELP!

When the temperature in the house raises, the thermostat clicks and the AC unit outside turns on. Shortly after that, the blower starts blowing. About 5 minutes later, the blower stops but, the outside unit continues running. Then, after about 30 seconds, the blower starts blowing again.

This continues until the temperature in the house reaches the setting on the thermostat (sometimes, it takes 20 - 30 minutes for the temperature to go down just 1 degree).

Could my blower be shutting off if the unit is not fully charged?
Could my thermostat be messing up the blower?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thank you,
Chris

Hi Chris,

Can be a few things, but I am leaning towards the motor itself on the blower.

I would not run the A/C any more with this blower shutting down on your..

Just when the blower stops, turn off the power and remove the blower door, with CARE! put our hand on the motor to see if it's HOT. If it's hot, then I'd say the motor is tripping on a safety limit.

Report back to us what you find.

It seems that my overflow pan upstairs was full and it was reaching the point of automatically turning off the blower. The pan was getting full because my drain to the outside was clogged with insulation.

Problem solved and the air has been working just fine all weekend.

Thanks,
Chris
