Many outside AC units have just one capacitor that starts the compressor and the fan. Some units however have two. Just follow the wires from the motor to the capacitor, pull it and test it. Make sure you disconnect the power from the unit by pulling the fuse block first. If the capacitor is good the motor may have siezed up or burned out.

My condenser fan runs and blows cool air but isnt cooling down the house. Any help.


Check the outdoor unit (condensing unit). Keep in mind, because the condenser fan is running it's not an indication that the compressor is working. On a split system,there's a dual capacitor that serves the fan and the compressor. The capacitor has three terminals.
1. common
2. fan = fan
3. Herm = compressor
This is a common problem; The outdoor fan (condenser fan) runs, but not the compressor (you have to know the sound of a running compressor or you'll mistake it for the sound of the fan) doesn't, because the compressor side of the capacitor is too weak to give it that needed phase angle that it requires to start. If you're referring to the outdoor fan spinning, but no cooling, I can bet the compressor isn't working and needs a new capacitor. Very common problem, I see it all the time. Before you change the capacitor, make sure that you cut the power to the unit, and then use an insulated tool such as a screwdriver and short the terminals together first. A capacitor holds a charge even after being de -energized.Buy the new one with the same exact rating written on it as the old one. Do not mix up the wires when replacing. Write it down or take a picture with your phone

Armstrong concept 1200-bad start/run capacitor?


Yes, most likely the start capacitor has failed & should be replaced. You have proven this by being able to hand-start the fan. Once replaced, the compressor should kick in & work fine.

Compressor doesn't come on...defrosting...only fan and light running.


I would suggest you check the starting capacitor and start relay before you give up on your unit. If it is the compressor, that can get very expensive because it is a sealed unit with freon.

Were your condenser grill clean and free of debrie? Was there air flow over the condenser?

Fan motor will not come on


That thing connected to the capacitor is a booster for the compressor .But if the outside fan doesn't work , the compressor will shutt off on overload because the high pressure in the condenser coil.
First try to replace the capacitor in the condensing unit (it's the only one that works for the compressor and the fan motor) ,but if the fan doesn't start, you need to replace the fan motor.
