Question about Carrier Heating & Cooling
Outdoor unit motor humms but does not turn could it be the capacitor? I am hoping it's not the motor. Relay from thermostat does engage.
Yes it could be the capacitor open or shorted possiblity.
check the motor to be sure it turns free?(disconnect power first)
check with a voltage meter the wires coming from the fan motor to its power source and see if there is the required voltage there for it to operate?
Feel the motor is it hot? or not hot?
If it is hot then you could have a shorted capacitor causing the motor to overheat
check for a burning smell also.
Take an ohm reading across the motor wires after you turn the power off and disconnect the motor wires.
pick your two power wires from the motor and ohm them do you get a reading? the motor is good
no reading motor is bad or overheated and out on internal overload..
