Your system likely has a thermal sensor in which the fan kicks on on a as needed basis. Normally this will happen during the heating cycle. Are you heating or cooling?

the mfd is stamped on the side of the capacitor.Be careful to kill the power and to NOT touch the terminals.The capacitor is capable of holding a charge even after power is disconnected.

SOURCE: HVAC Blower Motor Replacement

Ain't nothing to it. Slide out the blower and take it outside. Use some rust buster to get the blower out. Don't beat on the shaft. Spread that shaft and the wheel won't come off. Use a rubber mallet. Most generic blowers have white as a common wire and the speeds are black-hi blue med and red, for low. 2 brown wires will go to the capacitor. other wires will reverse direction. Wash the housing and blower wheel good. any wire unused will be taped off to themselves. Nothing to it.

SOURCE: Goodman 3 ton heat pump - condenser fan motor gets

did you get a motor with the same amps? did you check to what the amp draw is on the old motor to the new? reason is different amp ratings on motors need dfferent blade pitches, also 2,3 or 4 blades pull different cfm. is the motor a belly band mount or does it hang by studs? also check to see if the capacitor is the correct uF. hope this helps you feel free to ask any question if this does not help you.

SOURCE: I just had a new Dometic roof air conditioner

I have over 35 years in the A/C business and am ASC certified. The motor will normally draw 4 to 6 times it FLA (Full Load Amps) or RLA (Regular Load Amps) when first starting up or is seized. This is called LRA (Locked Rotor Amps). These specs can be found on the motors nameplate and can be checked with an amp meter. If the motor hums and won't start while pulling these high amps, Try giving it a spin with a stick. (in the right direction of course). If it keeps running when helped to start, its probably the capacitor. They normally run about $7.50 wholesale. If its tight in both directions while humming, 1 or more of the field poles is out of balance and the motor will need replacement. Good luck and be careful when spinning it.

It may be a defective switch, loose or corroded contact connection point, where the wire meets a terminal. If these check out good, then the fan motor is defective and needs to be replaced with a new one.

I have 4 ton carrier heat pump / puron. It is a new system been installed about 3 months. Live near Dallas Texas and lately the temp has dropped into the low 40's at night. The heat seems too be working...


The water is from humidity in the outdoor air which has condensed and then frozen to your heat pump outdoor coil. The heat pump will defrost occassionally, depending on how much frost has accumulated to the coil and will then generally drip off the unit and onto the ground. This is normal. To keep the water off the drive way may mean having to move the heat pump to a place where the condensation can run away from the drive area. Or provide some other means of redirecting the water.

Have a Payne A3PZ airconditioner and a Roberts Aire thermostate need help with wireing it up. The was I understand is that you need a Payne therostate to use with Payne AC unit. But surely there is a...


No, Payne is a cheap Carrier unit. Keep track of your wires and what terminals they are attached to. Usually, units are either a 4 wire or 5 wire setup. In either of these the R terminal is your 24v power, G term is your fan, W is your heat, and Y is your cool. Some times there is a 5 wire which is your common. You use a common if your thermostat isn't powered by a battery. On the R terminal, they are usually marked RC/RH and have a jumper between them. The only time you should remove the jumper is in a 5 wire set up. RC refers to the common and RH refers to Hot or power. Make sure that when you are installing the new tstat there is usually a very small switch that you change for either an electric unit or a gas unit. Change according to what you have. As long as you keep track of your colors and terminals on your old tstat, you won't have to open up your unit to see where the wires are terminating. Good luck to you!

Gas tank


The wiring is for the fuel pump and fuel regulator,I would suggest,you take the fuel pump assembly from the old tank and use it in the new one.
Or if you can post year and model of the vehicle that the old tank and new tank are from or for,I can locate a wiring diagram.
