Goodman Air Handler motor will not turn off.

I installed a new squirrel cage motor and now when the furnace is off, the motor will still run in slow speed even if I turn the thermostat off. When the heat or air are turned on, then the motor runs at normal speed.

    i just installed a goodman heat pump air handler and when i go to give it power the fan motor just turns on it will turn off

  • travis_buchn Aug 13, 2009

    I pulled off the "G" Terminal and the motor continues to run in slow speed. Is there a good way to determine whether it is a stuck fan relay or a low voltage control wiring malfunction. This only started happening when I installed a new motor.

Look at your Thermostat wiring.
If there is a green wire going to the "G" terminal, disconnect it.

If it stops running, you have a bad T-stat.

If it keeps running, you either have a stuck fan relay or a low voltage control wiring malfunction.
Those are usually related to one of the safety switches having problems.

If green is not going to G, let me know, and we will determine which one is indeed the fan wire and go from there.

Remember, when you rate the solution, it closes further dialog, so only rate when you are satisfied with the discusion.

The air conditioner unit outside works fine but it does not blow any air in the house.When it wants to blow, it makes a humming sound only but no forced air movement. Also,how do I access the blower,...

On the Good man you need a 5/16 nut driver take the furnace panels off and the blower is in the bottom area. There are 2 screws up top that connect to the blower housing take those out. Everything else will be loose be careful with the wires they can be tricky to work around. But take your motor out throw it away and install your new blower motor and capacitor. Its a simple job really. If you replace the motor yourself you willl save over $300.00

I need to replace my blower motor on my air handler

Turn off power to machine and have a 5/16" or 1/4" nut driver handy take off front door of machine. Take a rubber coated Screw driver and place across the terminals of the Capacitor to discharge any stored electricity. Cut wires for blower Black, Red, white, two browns one with white lines on it probably. Look inside machine and locate where bracket holds squirrel cage to air handler and there you will find either 5/16" or 3/8" screw remove pull bracket out. Then you will need a 1/2" socket and a crescent wrench. Remove screws for motor bracket that is attached to squirrel cage. Also you need to loosen the set screw that attaches blower wheel to motor. Apply wd-40 if needed to remove blower wheel from motor. Then install new motor on the flat part of the shaft comes through wheel attach set screw to motor shaft at that position. Install new cap that goes with motor. place entire housing of motor back into air handler and then follow wires that where previously cut back to either relays, sequencers, or fan timer board located in top section of air handler. Tighten everything up and turn power on and make sure air is coming out of vents. Then your good to go.

Centrifugal Switch Closed is what my Furnace is telling me and it will not kick on i have a Coleman Evcon heating and cooling unit

Hello, I had the same problem and replaced the Centrifugal motor which still did not fix the problem. It turned out to be the squirrel cage that the Centrifugal motor turns. It was sticking on the rubber gasket between the motor and the squirrel cage/housing assembly. I loosened the set screw that holds the cage on the shaft and moved the cage up 1/8th of an inch and it solved the problem.

It's a brand new unit but it blows air so hard and makes so much noise. Can the flow the adjusted down?

is the fan outside too noisy,if so there is no way to change the speed of this fan,the blower motor in the furnace can be adjusted,either by adjusting the centrifugal pulley on the motor shaft or electrically or installing a different squirrel cage fan on the furnace blower

Goodman ac heat air handler starts noisily for about 30 seconds then stops. Condenser fan is okay. Inside fan works but seems weak. I can't find the model number, so I just picked the first one.

inside the air handle there is a motor and a cage(squirrel). I am assuming this is the problem. The side that has the pilot light, take this cove off first, then the back cover. There is a switch so when you take the back cover off it opens the circuit. You will see a main board and to the left and behind is the motor and squirrel cage. I would kill power and then remove the bolts making sure I make the wires and where they go. Then just take the motor and cage out. You will need a allen wrench to remove cage, then replace motor. Hope this helps Tim

I want to clean the squirl cage fan on my Carrier handler. It's 12 years old and never really been cleaned. What is the best cleaning procedure to maximize its efficiency.

The best way to really clean the squirrel cage is to remove the entire indoor blower motor housing assembly out of the furnace then remove the squirrel cage from the motor shaft and pressure wash the squirrel cage. Make sure you don't use to much water pressure as you might knock off any balancing weights that may be attached to the one or more of the vanes. Make sure the cage is completely dry before you re-install it back on the motor shaft.

New furnace, goodman and reinstalling squirrel cage... unsure where to put red wire running from squirrel cage

Follow your schematic on the new unit. It will tell you where the wire goes. Some of the "extra" wires are connected to the main board close to where the "used" wires are and they are labled "spare". Find the blower motor on the schematic and trace out where this wire will go.
