    Cheech,

    Ed had the best suggestion. Shut it down and call a local company for a full inspection.

    Do you know how to use a multi meter to check the fan for power? If so check it when it is trying to run. It is probubly cycling on low press switch. If you do not know how to check it safely then call for service. If you do check it and thats not the problem then you might have a defrost problem .

    a certain amount of frost will be visable before it goes into a defrost cycle,did you leave it run long enough to be sure it wasn't in a defrost cycle?The fan stops during defrost.

    Did you turn it off ?
