Question about Friedrich SL24J30 Air Conditioner

Fan not working

In order to start the fan, I have to remove it form it's housing and turn the fan blades then grease it. It will run fine for about 2 weeks and I have to do it all over again. Do I need to order another fan motor? If so, tell me where to order it from? And the cost. My model # isSL23H30H. And the motor # is5KCP39JGN052.

Ac compressor fan running backwards.


Fan motors have rotations, clockwise and counter clockwise, lead end and opposite lead end. If you are looking at the motor from the fan blade side and the wires are on the back (opposite) side of the motor then you are looking at opposite lead end. Then you need to determine the rotation of the blade. It will scoop the air, so turning the blade that direction will give you the rotation. They also sell motors that you can change rotation by changing certain wires they have added.
When you replace a motor you need to notice the rotation and order that rotation. which end of the motor you are looking at to determine it. Then order the same rotation when buying the new one.

Replace the fan motor and capacitor. If you want to go the cheaper route, change the capacitor first and try to run the unit. The cap. is what gets the fan motor running on start up. Another way to test it is to manually turn the fan bade and while it's still turning, make sure your hands are clear of the blades and turn the condensor on. If the fan runs normally, then it's your fan capacitor.

Outdoor condensing fan motor has stopped running. This problem could be caused by a bad motor run capacitor. If your motor capacitor is not the problem, then more than likely you need a new motor. Is the fan blade tight, stiff or hard to turn? If the fan blade is hard to turn then you probably need a new motor

The fan motor will stop working, but when I try to turn the fan blades, it turns pretty freely. When the unit is running for a few minutes, it trips the house breaker.


Hello, i would check the capacitor on tne unit, if it starts by turning by hand that means the capacitor is either weak, or bad.

What and interesting situation. I have seen installations like what you describe, but not in a residential application. Industrial applications that had very high ceilings and in very old apartment buildings, But not in single family resident. I suspect, that the previous owners "acquired" it through unusual circumstances.

In any event, 1/3 horsepower electric motor is not that hard to find. The real key is getting the right rotation, so the blades will pull the air up and out instead of in and down. Remounting a new motor coupled with the right pulley size for a fan belt ,can control the speed of the fan. Rarely are hold house fans direct drive. Which may be the case with yours, I don't know.

As far as a new 1/3 Hp motor is concerned, I would recommend Grainger Industrial Supply
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/wwg/start.shtml. They have locations throughout the country and their staff is knowledgeable. They can probably help you with designing a belt & pulley system, to control the speed, if necessary. Keep in mind, 2-speed motors are also available.

Redesigned properly, you can do away with that horrendous shaft.

Hope this helps steer you in the right direction. If nothing else, food for thought.

Compressor makes noise, but fans won't run


I'm guessing the hum you hear is the fan motor. After sitting for a time, I've had many that develop like a dead spot in the fan motor. Here's what to try. Shut power off to AC. Get someone up on the roof with about a 2 ft.,long fairly strong stick, or rod , about 1/4 inch or so in diameter. Have them carefully poke it through the openings in the cover and spin the fan blades at the back end of it. May be a little stiff at first, so don't break blades on fan, but get stick under one & lift to spin it, or over it & push it downward. Spin it 2 or 3 times all the way around. Turn power back on. Now stand back & try fan mode again. 99% of the time that will do it, but if not, take screws off around cover on roof & remove cover & give fan a bunch of good spins by hand, then turn power back on & try it. Keep me posted on results please ?

Condenser fan running backwards on heat pump


I am having the same problem, sometimes it runs in the wrong direction, blowing the air down. Sometimes something gets tripped and I need to turn the thermostat to off and wait a bit then restart it. If I am lucky it will run int the correct direction and also will warm the house. Sometimes it send nothing but cold air to the house's forced air.

Fan whining and blades not going


Sounds like your compressor outside is frozen up or (locked up) the smell is outside correct? it could also be your fan also in your condensor unit outside the easiest way is to listen for fluid movement (if your freon is moving then your compressor is working and you need to lean toward a fan motor. check to see if you can move the fan blades in the compressor (outside ) if the problem is in the house then approach in the same way with the power to the unit turned off only If you cannot turn it most likely fan motor replacement is in order, and pressure sensors are not letting your condensor run. theres a few things to try hope i have helped .Honestly it probably would not hurt to let a service man look at it anyway, but this way at least you're a little wiser chris

Lg 18000 remote with heater


your fan blade hit something and i think one of the blade got damaged and somehow it is no longer balance and makes a lot of vibrations.

have you read in the instruction manual to remove some kind of a shipping support before running the unit?

im just curious what hit your blade. it could be the shipping support for the compressor.

tnx 4 using fixya,
