    Sweating in Florida

    Hey guy new member here, just have a few questions.

    My ac is not working.
    My ac is not blowing any air at all.
    The fan will not turn on.
    I have a intertherm model p3ra030k system as I live in a mobile home.
    I also have a freon leak, and I normaly have the unit recharged every 5 to 6 months. Right now that fan that moves the air into the house is not moving at all. No air coming out of the vents.
    Even when I trun the ac system off and just set the fan to on at the thermostat i get nothing.
    When I went to check on it I also noticed that my coils were frozen over. I know its been about 3 to 4 months since my last charge. Could the problem with the fan, which I am guessing is the blower be related to the lack of freon?
    I have noticed in the past when I needed it charged it would not blow as hard, but it would atleast blow, but the fan wont even come on at this point.
    I am quessing it is either the blower motor, or possible a problem with the electricy get there, either a bad relay, or board.

    Any suggestins please help.

    #1 Sounds like a power issue
    #2 Tell your AC guy to fix the leak permanantly and stop just recharging

    Talking things that could be wrong

    check your return air make sure you have enough
    and wait for it to unfreeze and check your breakers

    Return Air

    How can I check for return air?

    Yes I argee I need to have the freon leak fixed, but from what I have been told the leak may be in the condenser coils? I just dont have the money to replace that right now.

    The blower could be working, just can't blow through a thick slab of ice. Have the system repaired correctly. To keep operating the system under such adverse conditions is just destroying it.
