SOURCE: Outdoor fan motor is not running fast enough?

Thanks for the suggestion. I figured out the problem. The replacement fan motor I bought was general fan motor. it had 5 wires. Two of them went to the capacitor (this unit has combo capacitor, 3 leg). I followed the schematic diag on the motor and connected one leg to the C and the other leg to the FAN on capacitor. what was happening, the start winding was working against the run winding in the motor. Once I switch the wires in the capacitor, fan ran at full speed. thanks again for your reply.

SOURCE: Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan won't kick on

be aware that not repairing this asap that you are causing yourself more problems First I would change out the fan capacitor and see if this could be the problem. Secondly if the capacitor isn,t the problem change out the motor . By continuing to allow the system to cycle like this the compressor will take a dive on you costing more . Good Luck

Testimonial: "Yes, it's dual run capacitor problem. I used a stick to spin the fan blades and it starts to slowly spin and up to normal speed, so motor is good."

SOURCE: home ac compressor fan won't turn all the time.

your looking at $175-$225 for just the single phase motor depending where you purchase, I just replaced mine(identical unit) due to screaming dry bearings, if you replace it your self make sure to keep new wires tight along side of unit or fan will cut them if loose and its a fan- 5mfd/25mfd compressor@440volt cap

Hello,By all means install a hard start kit on the cap.Your wiring is correct.A scroll compressor usally doesn't need a start kit but I have seen 5 ton units that take one.Check the compressor tag and make sure the compressor is not a 3 phase motor!

HVAC fan is on, but the compressor attempts but will not start


Sounds like you have a condensing unit that has a lock up condition; commonly known as "Locked Rotor'.
A simple step would be to be sure the compressor is cool.
Start the unit, and as it try's to start, bump the compressor on the shell sideways to jar it , with a rubber mallet.
If the compressor starts... it may or may not start again at one point.
You can try adding a start assist, or commonly known as a Hard Start Kit. It's simple and the two wires go on the Run Capacitor In parallel with the wires with the compressor wires.
Usually the capacitor has a C common ..F fan.... and M motor terminals . The start assist wires piggyback on Common C and M motor. NOT THE FAN side of the run cap.

Bad run capacitor or bad compressor. If you hear an occasional click from the compressor try a new run cap and then a hard start kit. Otherwise it's more economical to purchase a new unit.

Yes, if you changed the three post capacitor that runs the fan and compressor, and the fan is still getting hot and shutting down until it cools off, you may have bushings out of the motor or an internal short. Sounds like you have a job ahead of you of changing your condenser motor. If you do this yourself just contact me I will step you through it . Mark

My ac central air is blowing air but not cold


Problem #1:Outdoor condensing fan motor has stopped running. This problem could be caused by a bad motor run capacitor. If your motor capacitor is not the problem, then more than likely you need a new motor. Is the fan blade tight, stiff or hard to turn? If the fan blade is hard to turn then you probably need a new motor. Problem #2: Air conditioner compressor will not start. When power is applied to the air conditioning outdoor unit the fan starts, but you hear a sound like the compressor is trying to start, "UGGG"..., for about 5 to 10 seconds and then all you hear is the outdoor condenser fan run. The compressor is locked and will not start. What is happening is the compressor is trying to start, but because the compressor motor is locked it tries to start for a few seconds and then because of the high amperage being drawn goes off on internal overload. The internal overload protects the compressor windings from overheating and burning up. I see this many times during the start of the air conditioning season. Some compressors just have a hard time starting after sitting all winter long. Some compressors are locked up so bad that I can not start them and must tell my customer that they need a new compressor . Many times I can get the compressor started again without having to buy a new compressor or new air conditioning system by using the device known as a "Super-Boost." I keep two or three of these on the truck. They have saved many of my customers from having to buy new air conditioning compressor. Another good device is called a "5-2-1" kit.

Please check outdoor unit. Compressor or fan motor getting high amps due to overheat. Clean condenser coil. If still problem, replace running capacitor. If out door fan less rpm replace fan capacitor. In some unit 2 in 1 capacitor is there. So replace one capacitor will rectify fan and compressor problem. Thanks. Helpful?

Have and older model. 1.5ton 10 seer unit. The


a hard start is not for a fan they are for a compressor and if your compressor need a hard start kit it most likely is not long for this world. most manufactures have a 14 seer line (13 is min) that will with the right coil and furnace match get a 16 seer rating if you have the money this is a good way to go if it is just the fan thats not working i would call another service company or ask that another tech be sent out because if they are telling you that you need a hard start on a fan they dont know what they are doing

Blows cold but shuts down no freeze up


Check the capacitor. It should be a dual capacitor , runs both compressor and fan. This sounds like your problem only because both the compressor and the fan go out together. Good Luck Hope I helped

you can try a hard start kit that can be purchased from an a/c supply store. This hard start kit adds a little extra boost of power to the compressor that in the event the com,pressor is wanting to be a bit stubborn when turning on this kit will assist. It connects to the exsisting capacitor. As far as the fan not turning I would check to see if it is receiving voltage and if it is I would suggest changing the capacitor once more after testing motor to see that the motor is still in good shape.. To test the motor you need to check for continuity from the common of the motor to the power side of the motor. If you have continuity then motor 85% of the time, is still good and you need the capicitor replaced
