Question about Amana PTH123B25AJ Heat Pump Air Conditioner
I have 6 years old Amana Cooling Condensing Unit VCA42B2D (out side
heat pump?) at my house. For the last few days the outside unit fan
will stop spinning after 15 mins and then the unit keeps making humming
noise. The cool air stops flowing. The fan will run again if I switch off the unit for a few hours but again stop in about 15 mins.
The unit system seems to be getting hot when the fan is not running.
I had a technician come and have a quick look at it but he could not decide.
What could be the reason?Capacitor? Relay? Motor? Any ideas?
Capacitor, dirty condencer coil causing the motor amps to run too high. But most likely worn bearing on blade side of motor causing it to pull to one side causing it to over heat and shut down. Sleve bearings should have no side play.
