If the fan motor has a capicator it could be bad. A bad cap will pull the motor down. If there is no cap then the motor beatings could be going bad. this can be checked by matching the motor amps with the rated amps on the unit information tag.

SOURCE: fan motor keeps running on Audi A4 2004

fan motor has a thermal switch which turns on the fan as soon as the engine heats up. what happened there is that the switch is stuck on the closed position which keeps the fan on all the time. you should go to a garrage and have the part changed.

Technically, you could take the wires off the motor and check to see if you have 120 volts which elimenates any other componet. The fact that you can spin the motor and it runs some what indicates that you do have the voltage there and that the bearings in the motor are going bad and causingthe motor to stop. Repalce the motor,

    This could the problem the with short circuit or defective component you need to check :

    Why would evap fan running slow


    If u turn the fan by hand and it turn then u need a new fan, and i think u are mixing up the fans, the fan inside the refrigerator would be the evaporator fan if that was broken then your compressor would be cold, the fan inside the compressor section would be the condenser fan, if that was defective then your compressor would be hot causing the compressor to short cycle. change the fan and clean your condenser coil and your problem should be gone,

    Goodman heatpump fan runs, condenser wont start


    Either the condenser fan has bad bearings, or it has a defective fan capacitor.
    Turn off the breaker to the outside unit.
    Spin the fan blade by hand.
    If the fan blade spins easily and will spin a few revolutions with no problem the fan bearings are good.
    If not, replace the fan motor due to bad bearings.
    I am pretty sure you fan motor is bad because with a bad capacitor the fan motor will not get up to speed and may just sit and overheat.
    I'm leaning toward a bad fan motor.

    Refrigerator wont run. Clicking noise coming from main board preceded by a short humming noise every several seconds. Unplug for 30 minutes then plug back in and compressor starts up after several clicks...


    Hello,
    That condenser fan motor needs to be replaced. You and doing the right thing as far as using a seperate fan to keep compressor cool,buy replacing the fan the compressor will run cooler and click off by being too hot as you have heard/seen.

    Find your model number and call your local appliance parts store and see if they have a CONDERSER FAN MOTOR in stock

    My magic refigerator/freezer condenser fan stops but when I move the fan blade it starts working and the refrigerator get cold again. Is it a bad fan unit or something else?


    yes if you can barely touch blade and it stops the fan motor is bad. While replacing conderser fan motor be sure to clean dust from condenser coil.Then as regular maintiance clean coils twice per year.

    Refrigerator gets extremely hot in the center strip on the doors. Is this is a condensor fan problem and if so can you give me an idea of how much it would cost to fix it?


    This is normal. The refrigerant lines run through the center strip to reduce condensation buldup between the doors.
    The temperature will vary and can be as high as 120 degrees F.
    When the compressor cycles off it cools down.

    The fan on the bryant high efficient heat pump moves very slow or not at all


    Hi, this is a 3 ton unit. It may or may not have a variable speed fan. You are saying it turns very slow or just stops. I believe you either have a problem with the run capacitor, or you are loosing this motor. They are putting variable speed blower motors on some units now, but if you are talking about your condenser fan motor, it may have a head pressure control to speed up this motor when the ambient temperature is higher and slower when cooler, but to stop when running indicates a motor or run capacitor problem. Check the cap. for oil leaks, swollen and deformed, burned terminals. If you find this, replace it. Remove the fan guard and carefully with the power off after it has ran for a while touch to see how hot the body of the motor is. If it is to hot to touch, you are loosing this motor. If you have a clamp around amp probe or know someone who may, you can look at the data plate to see what this motor should be drawing as far as amps and compare your readings to this. You will know for sure doing it this way.

    Fan Stops blowing air


    Isthis a window unit? It sounds like it. There could be a problem with your fan switch or the fan motor itself? Multi-speed motors can lose one speed at a time. It really sounds like the fan motor is bad. If the compressor starts in the cool mode, and the fan doesn't, the fan motor could be locked up. See, if you can spin the motor by hand? If you can, then something is bad within the motor. Now, if the motor has a capacitor, check for a loose or burned wire. Good luck.
