Symptoms of a Broken AC Motor

Prime Comfort understands how important it is to have a reliable cooling system in your home during the summer. The motors on AC systems can break and cause your entire system to shut down. There are a variety of symptoms that a faulty AC motor could exhibit before it stops working completely. Paying attention to these signs and getting them addressed could save you time, hassle, and money in the future.

Unusual Cycling

If the motor of your AC system is turning on and off unexpectedly, it might have an issue. While it might be tempting to ignore the problem since your unit still works, it could lead to major issues in the future.

Strange Noises

A fully functional AC unit should work quietly and not make any unusual noises. If you’ve noticed that your unit is humming or sounding strange, it’s time to have a professional take a look at it. The strange noises could be from the motor starting to break down.

Poor Cooling Ability

If your air conditioner isn’t keeping your home at an even and cool temperature, the motor may be to blame. A faulty motor won’t have the power to push enough cool air through your home to keep it at a comfortable temperature. This lack of power might be a precursor to a complete system breakdown.

Inability to Turn Off

A motor that is about to break could lose its ability to turn off. If you notice that the motor is still running when the AC system is turned off, it’s time to get help.
