A/C Emergency!! compressor running but no fan....

This is a hydro grow but an electrical question. A/C to be specific. The a/c comp seems to be working but the fan has kicked off, and isnt coming back on. I feel cold air ln the line but its not blowing. I am getting a/c particulars.... Rheem RSNM-A060JK 000. I'm downloading a pic of the Tag and the guts so somebody can say "that little black thing on the right" or whatever......

Yep I was going to guess froze up. GOod luck with it

The "tech" put in 11# of 410A without leak testing. Froze up in about 12 hours! CannabiJohn has been extremely helpful. Thank you guys, and ill get a pic of the diagram soon...

Hey bro if he put 11#'s that means ur system was almost completely flat on charge which would mean a major leak bro if froze again he didn't fix the leak! If that is what is going on so many variables sounds like he just wanted to gas and go! Is it working now always check air filters first could be as simple as a clogged filter! peace

According to the nameplate 11#'s is what it holds if flat it would not of froze up so he is over charging the system or you! Then it froze again someting fishy with repair done!

SHIT I forgot pics of the schematics!

Thanks Blazer, T'was the night before labor day weekend, and all he wanted to do, is charge it up so he could go on a little vaca with my 400$! It is a brand new unit, removed filter all together to see if that was an issue...NOPE:( he just hijacked my cash! I missed a call yesterday, I think was him, but of course he didn't leave a message:D
Bad word of mouth will shut ya down, and right now, with everybody being broke, the only big ACs installed around here right now are the new med farmers. And guess what..... I know a FEW:D
Thanks Blazer!!

Is there a case when changing the coil first is the proper protocol? Are there any that are just disposable? Just don't want to say it shoulda been leak tested if it might not be a fixable type. (which I highly doubt!!)

If the leak is in a fucked place sometimes there not economical to fix.never seen a disposable coil they are made of mostly copper so exspensive. but with it being new should be repairable . noticed it a two stage system two compressors so each circuit holds 11#'s(my bad has one compressor im blazing some of waaynes alien super skunk!!!)lol .The cost r410a is skyrocketed last couple years.with it been that low he should have leak checked it should be obvious if leaking that fast, look for oil spots on your copper lines at fittings and coils, might be a indicator of leak. $400 sounds close prob $200 for refrigerant$ 200 labor if a company! leak repairs can get up there in price which usual include evacuating and recharging system
