Hi, I deal with evaporator motors on a day to day basis.If the motor is running but not up to full speed, the inner windings of the motor are going out. If the motor runs as you say, is it getting only 94 volts to it? If this is the case, check the incoming voltage to the unit itself. Check to see on the schematics what is between the motor where you may be loosing your voltage. Defrost thermostat, or timer. Check power to the timer first and get back to me. The defrost thermostat supplies power to the fan when the evaporator temperature gets cold enough and the contacts will close and send power to one side of the motor. If it is going bad, it will cause you to loose part or all of the voltage. If you have a meter, check this. It is round and sealed with 2 terminals on it. If it is cold enough, you can check the leads to ground and see if you are getting less then 120 volts coming out the motor side. If so, replace the thermostat. Please keep me posted.
PS Be safe around electricity. Also, this defrost stat snaps around a evap. line.

It appears your clutch assembly has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
