Disconnect from power and put splices on wires - will need soldering iron .Wires must be attached to matching wires as before damage. If you cannot identify , you must not proceed -take to service.Wait to hear from you.After repairs it should start right up.

Compressor/Condensor fan need to be turned by hand to get it started. Do I need a new fan motor or could this be a larger issue.


If the fan does indeed run ok without any bearing noise and the blade spins freely when you push it and then runs ok your motor start capacitor is bad on the motor. This is usually a small metal oval shaped can with two wire leads attached to it to help kick the motor armature into spinning when your ac unit first turns on.

The capacitor is about 4 to 6 uf (microfarads) and at is available at a local electrical supply house and is under $10 and if your handy with small tools this could be replaced by yourself if you are willing. BE SURE TO PULL the OUTSIDE POWER DISCONNET before taking any covers off. 240 volts ac for the compressor motor and fan motor plus even the 110 volt control power will kill you before you can blink! The control relay from the thermostat in your home is 24 volts ac. Get a friend with a voltmeter to verify the circuits are truly dead before you attempt repairs. Good luck and use a voltmeter to make sure the power to the ac unit is off! Regards, Dennis

I have a 6 yr old lennox merit 10acc system and the compressor doesn't seem to be running as there is no cold air and line out of compressor is not cold/sweating like my 2nd (good) unit.


you cant check capacitor with power on it nor using volt setting.need micro ferred setting on meter and check with power off and wires removed. leads go as follow for fan one lead on "C" and one on fan. For compressor one lead on Common and one on HERM. Also be sure voltage on capacitor is correct 360V or 440V. 440V will work for either. Also double check micro ferred requierment on motor and compressor. If its been replaced before may have been replaced with incorrect size. It happens.

My Air conditioner stopped putting out cool air. The fan unit outside stopped turning. What would the problem be?


The unit is overheating and tripping the internal overload of the compressor. Clean outdoor coils.....check outdoor fan to see if it turns or is siezed......possible bad Start/Run Capacitor which is a very common failure on condensing units......possible bad fan motor need replaced! Unit compressor can be cooled with a water hose to get it to reset the internal biometalic high limit switch that is located in the hermetically sealed compressor!

Home ac compressor fan won't turn all the time.


your looking at $175-$225 for just the single phase motor depending where you purchase, I just replaced mine(identical unit) due to screaming dry bearings, if you replace it your self make sure to keep new wires tight along side of unit or fan will cut them if loose and its a fan- 5mfd/25mfd compressor@440volt cap

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.

Compressor fan motor runs backwards


Most likely a bad motor or bad capacitor. I would check the capacitor first as this is probably a $20 fix. The fact that it runs in the correct direction but at a reduced speed really leans hard to the capacitor.

Good Luck and hope this resolves things for you. Let me know.

Air Conditioner compressor fan stops, Capacitor wired wrong?


Purple should be on "C".
The fan motor may be destroyed now. Switch the wire and see if it keeps running or not.

Goodman ac unit is not cooling


If your uniy is not producing water then check if the compressor is running. Whether you have a central or a wall unit you will hear the compressor come on. There is a way to check the compressor by removing the compressor cover and wires then ohming out the compressor terminals. REMEMBER THE ORDER THAT YOU TOOK OFF THE WIRES. You,ll have run [R], start [S], and common [C] you should a reading across all three. If one or more do not show a reading then the compressor has an open winding. If all have readings then the compressor motor is ok. Check for burnt or broken wire which might have saw when you opened it. If the compressor is running then you are low on refrigerant.
