Question about Heating & Cooling
The fan Runs slow about half speed. The Fan motor turns free and will spin for 2 minutes after the power is off but the fan turns slow.
I figured it was the run Capacitor so replaced but only a tiny bit faster.
Since the new capacitor made very little difference I put the old one back and jumpered in the new on in Parrallel and if a tiny bit faster but still so slow the condenser would freeze up it I let it run a long time.
The fan motor has no brushes or anything like that so do not think it is a motor problem. Looking for a Schematic to help trouble shoot.
I will ohm out the motor but right now am suppecting the controls. When the problem first started it would be fine then slow way down then pick back up. The compresser runs good.
If the motor seems like its getting extremely hot it could possibly be seezing up. i would suggest taking your volate reading for the motor and check for proper voltage, also check you amp draw on the motor. the proper amp draw should be on the name plat of the motor. any below the proper amp draw, replace the motor.
