Question about Heating & Cooling
I have a york unit and the unit stopped running one day. i can push the contactor in and the fan turns as long as i hold it in, so i replaced the contactor and still same problem. next i replaced the capacitor and same results.
This sounds like a bad t stat if you are pushing in the contactor for the condenser outside if that is not it let me no where your contacter is

I just had the same problem. I replaced the motor with no luck. It turned out to be a bad capacitor. If it is a dual capacitor, three prongs on top, it also starts the compressor. It is recommended to replace the capacitor anytime you replace a motor. I would try replacing the capacitor first. It is a lot cheaper that a new motor. If that does not fix the problem then you can get a motor. No harm, no foul. The slow start of the motor is a common symptom of a bad capacitor. The motor is not getting enough voltage. The capacitor increases the voltage like a transformer. It will boost it to almost 400 volts, depending on your unit.
