There is a switch in your thermostat housing that may not be working. You can use a multimeter to see if the switch closes at temperature. Also check the fan motor itself. I used to do it by applying power directly to the electric motor to see if it works. Not a terribly expensive or tough repair and should be doable in the drive way :-)Let me know if you need a copy of the service manual for the cooling part. Good Luck

I thought so, but I guess Sara Perez did not ;-)? Have not heard back to see if it worked. It would be nice if we would all get a bit more feedback just to make sure that our advise worked or what else is needed....Oh well ;-) Thanks remacberlin
