Question about Heating & Cooling

REPLACED A/C MOTOR ON OUTSIDE CONDENSER. NOW VIBRATING TOO MUCH TO ACTUALLY LET IT RUN. SHAFT SEEMS TO BE 6-6 1/2 LONG. FAN THAT ATTACHES SEEMS TO BE ABOUT 1-1 1/2 INCHES WIDE WHERE IT CONNECTS TO SHAFT, NOT SURE EXACTLY HOW TO PUT ON THIS MOTOR WHICH SEEMS TO HAVE SAME LENGTH AS MOTOR THAT WAS REMOVED. HOW CAN I GET THIS INSTALLED PROPERLY AND THE MAKE SURE OUTSIDE UNIT IS LEVEL SO i HAVE EVERTHING RIGHT? NO PROBLEM WHITH WIRING.

Zaiko e5 error how I can fix my ac


E5 indicates excessive temp. of the outside coil if on cooling, OR excessive temp of the inside coil in

heat mode. On cooling, the E5 will appear if the outside coil temp exceeds 68C. This is an indication

of condenser airflow reduced or non-existent. Using the procedure described above it is possible to

watch the condenser coil temp using the Temp down button and Medium fan speed combination to

display this temp. NB: if fans etc seem to be OK then measure thermistor resistance and refer to table

12. In case the problem is thermistor calibration.

Action: If unit is in cooling mode, examine both condenser fans are running. If

one is running then suspect a faulty motor. If both fans not running then

on units up to serial No. IBSA 01175, investigate the fan speed control

card located in enclosure on the LHS See fig 6.

If this checks OK then investigate main control card.

Fig 1, 2 or 3. Units with serial No's IBSA01176 and

onward are multi speed tapped wound motors not requiring a speed
control card. If both motors inoperative then suspect main control card

The condenser fan will not stay on


The condenser fan motor, on a standard a/c, is given power anytime the compressor comes on. If the compressor is still on when the fan motor goes off, the fan motor is failing or the run capacitor attached to it, usually by 2 brown wires, has failed. I can't see where you live,
(this is October), but if its below 70F outside when this happens its possible you have a temperature cycling control operating it and then that would become a normal function of the a/c. 3rd thing if its a heat pump that fan is operated by a circuit board and will have to be replaced by someone qualified to replace it. Good luck, hope this helps.

My goodman cental air system is having problems. First, the blower inside (furnace) keeps running for hrs after the outside condensor shuts down. Now, the condenser blower motor wont operate at full speed....


the cause of your indoor fan running all the time or for long time after your heat pump has stopped heating is the fan delay relay. It has welded its internal contacts together. If you take off the side below the control panel, the fan delay relay is normally mounted on the header where the fan discharges. Good news, the fan delay relay are fairly inexpensive and easily to change.

As far as the condensing fan motor not running at full speed, when it was changed, did the technician install the correct fan motor. Most condensing fan motors are either 875 rpm or 1175 rpm. They are exactly the same size and if the technician did not look closely he could have installed the wrong rpm motor. There is another possibility, he may have used the wrong capacitor. I have seen the condensing fan actually operate backwards at a lower than normal rpm. The fan if properly installed will discharge air upwards.

No idea how old this blower is, but we recently replaced the spark plug to get it working and it seems to be working fine, except the vibration is so much that it causes the cylinder to come loose from the...


The vibration is almost certainly an imbalance of the fan rotor. The device is very simple, the only thing attached to the motor shaft (and the only thing that moves besides the motor itself) is the fan. See if you can remove the cover over the fan. You will probably find that the fan rotor has some pieces broken off.

Motor is running, shaft not turning on pedestal fan -How do I fix this?


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like the axle shaft that Blades are attached to, broke from the fan motors output. If you can remove the fan guard with the fan switch off and fan un--plugged from the wall and see if you actually pull the fan shaft out of the motor. Even if you could fix this, the cost equals a new fan.

The thermostat has a timer on the on- cycle (5 min delay for the outside unit and blower inside) if you are not gonna call a service guy then ( for $25) you can go to homedepot (whatever you got out there) and buy a honeywell vertical digital heat and ac t'stat.
this one doesnt require you to set it up for a particular application. this may solve your problem. but as for warm air out of the registers you need a service guy to check that

I live in south texas overnight the ac stopped GOODMAN MODEL


Is the condenser fan (outside) turning? You mention that it's hot but don't say if it's turning or not.

These fan motors normally run pretty hot, but not so much that they shut down due to internal thermal overload protectors.

Both the compressor and the fan have termperature overload protectors to keep them from burning out the motor in the event of an overheated condition. The condenser fan must be running or high freon pressure will put an excessive load on the compressor and it will 'kick out' the high-temp overload protector.

Turn off the unit by pulling the outside disconnect (in a small box near the outside compressor unit) or flip the AC breakers in the breaker box. Wait about 30 minutes for the unit to cool off and turn it back on. If the compressor and fan both run for awhile then kick back off, or the fan motor seems to be working under excessive strain, you've probably got a bad motor start condenser (inside the unit) that little round can that is connected through the fan motor wiring. If it's swollen or leaking, it's almost surely defective and even if it's not, excessive load on the motor is a classic sign of a bad start condenser.

You can usually find these at electrical supply stores, well-stocked hardware stores, or most certainly at an HVAC parts house. Be sure to replace the old one with one of the EXACT same value (in voltage and Microfarads (mF) capacity. The shape may be a little different, but as long as the electrical characteristics are the same and is rated at the same or higher voltage than the original, it will work.

Connect the new condenser, mount it to the frame, and restart the unit. This should take care of the problem.

Hope this helps.

It sounds like your condenser fan motor may be locked up or the capacitor that helps give the condenser fan motor a kick to get it started may be defective. Try turning your system on and using a long screwdriver try to push the fan blade on the condenser fan motor to see if it will run normally if you give it the starting boost it needs.If it does run at full speed and doesn't over heat or start and then slow down then you probably only need to replace a simple 10-12$ capacitor. If it barely turns, makes an odd humming sound or overheats etc. then you will have to replace the condenser fan motor. This is assuming that the outdoor condenser has the 220v supplied and the 24v supplied to the compressor relay, that the compressor relay is engaged and suppling 220v to the condenser fan motor.
