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.

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."
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!
