Did you change the capacitor when you changed the fan? If you didn't you need to. And that capacitor is a dual one running the compressor and fan. So make a diagram of it what wires go where the area is real tight and some wires are the same color. You might make labels to be a little easier. Also get the same size capacitor when you change it.

Hello
There are a few things here that could be wrong.
1 Fan motor start capacitor is bad.Silver battery looking device on side of fan.Remove and replace with a new one.

2 Contactor for fan motor is pitted or burnt .If this is the case you will need a new contactor.

3 Fan motor is bad.Check top two before assuming this.
Check all fuses and circut breakers also.

Is your radiator cooling fan operating when the A/C is turned on? The cooling fan should be running at all times with the A/C on. If it does not, then your problem is being caused by a bad cooling fan motor, a bad cooling fan relay, a broken fan motor circuit, or broken fan control circuit.

When the unit is turned on. I can hear the AC pump kick on and run. But the blower fan motor will not turn on at any fan speed. No setting on the AC will get the blower fan to turn on?


Sounds like then fan has died or the run capacitor has die. All motors that run on single phase mains need a capacitor to start them spinning. These are quite cheap & simple to replace usually - worth just replacing if you feel you can't test it. Looks a bit like a 'D' cell battery with 2 leads hanging out. Could also be that the unit is not cooling/heating and the temp sensor will not activate fan until heating/cooling coolant has passed room temp. - Rick

YES. It seems your capacitor is bad.
It must be replaced with the exact specifications as the original.
IE: MFD and VOLTAGE for the compressor and fan motor.

My heat pump fan will not turn


First, with the unit not running, check to make sure the fan spins freely. Next check the capacitor. You can do that with a multimeter or look at it and if it looks swollen then it is most likely bad. Replace it with one of the same rating. If the capacitor is good then use an ohmmeter to check the fan motor windings. Also check the condition of your contactor and make sure the ciruit breakers are closed and the fuses are good. The breakers should be off before you check the capacitor, fan motor, and contactor.

Fan isn't turning


turn the power off, take the cover off the top and try to spin it. If it spins hard then it was the motor. If it spins easy the the capacitor is probably bad which
would cause the fan to go bad.

Usually this can be a dual capacitor which also controls the compressor. Sometimes just replacing
the capcitor can do the trick, if not then the worst
is that you will have to replace the motor and still use the new capacitor

Carrier 38CKC042300. oUTSIDE UNIT FAN WAS TURNING REAL SLOW. ac UNIT IS OFF BUT FAN TO OUTSIDE UNIT IS STILL TURNING. sHOULD NOT BE TURNING AT ALL WITH AC UNIT OFF


The outside fan may run if the unit is in defrost mode this is normal for most heat pumps it is there way of trying to keep the outside unit from staying iced over so the next time the unit runs it will have air flow through the coil and the ice will not be there to prevent air flow.

Fan motor is out or possibly the capacitor to the fan is bad. Would have capacitor replaced first then replace the motor if the capacitor didn't solve you problems.
