You need a volt ohm meter that will check uF, or a meter specific for capacitors. a lot of fans require a 5uF capacitor. they are very cheap to buy. If your fan gets hot, but doesn't start and the blade turns freely then its probably your capacitor is bad. Just kill all power to outdoor unit and pull the leads off on the common and fan on the capacitor and hook them up to the new on and the fan should start.

Condenssor fan moter not working


The condensor fan is usually a capacitor start capacitor run motor.To test i switch the unit on as normal then carefully flick the fan around in the direction of rotation (you may have to take the grill off) to do this,do not use your hand! If the motor starts to run it will be a faulty capacitor, do not leave it running for long as it will not run at full speed and will trip on thermal O/L or burn out.This is a common fault on AC split phase motors that use a capacitor for either starting or start and run.

This unit uses a dual run capacitor. There is no start capacitor involved.

The dual run capacitor is possible weak, also check all the electrical connections for tight fitting connections with can cause motor/compressor overheating.
To test a capacitor properly you need the proper test meter capable of reading uf readings(within 6% of the stated rating on the capacitor) "C" common to "F" fan and "C" to "Herm" terminal, the higher rating for compressor and the lower for the outdoor fan. [(example= 25/3uf 370v) 25uf=compressor, 3uf=fan motor.]

Replace the fan motor and capacitor. If you want to go the cheaper route, change the capacitor first and try to run the unit. The cap. is what gets the fan motor running on start up. Another way to test it is to manually turn the fan bade and while it's still turning, make sure your hands are clear of the blades and turn the condensor on. If the fan runs normally, then it's your fan capacitor.

If you have replaced the run capacitor and the fan still is running slow you definitley need to replace the motor no doubt. you can go online to Grainger.com or find one by your house. Your compressor is going off immediately because high pressure thats a good thing. Get a new fan and a new capacitor and you should be good.

Hello, I think your running capacitor is leaking, or your fan is busted,. yo need to check using a volt meter to test the running capacitor. if the capacitor is ok yo need to replaced the motor fan. ask a technician to help you. thanks

Wont run clockwise


Pleae check for the capacitor that is connected to the motor. if possible use a parallel capacitor to test before you detach. If the fault clearrs up then you must change the capacitor.
If this wont help check for power tto the fan from the regulator, check for winding continuity and insulation shorting. I hope the fault is within here. Helpful I hop. Good day

Is the compressor running? Take a look at the contactor in the outside unit and see how it looks and if it is pulled in energizing the fan and compressor. If the compressor is running then check for voltage at the fan. If you have power at the fan and it isn't running then turn the power off and check the capacitor. It may have just 1 for both the fan and compressor. If the capacitor is ok then the fan motor could be bad. You will need a multimeter with a capacitor check function to test the capacitor. Hope this helps. Let me know what you find.

Fan on outside unit will not turn on, will run once you give it a spin with a screwdriver however will not turn on by itself. Changed the fan and the capacitor both out with new ones, i am baffled!


Hi,

That is wierd. If the fan and capacitor is the same as the old one. Although I'm thinking of capacitor issue, you should take out the fan and capacitor and test it.

I hope this helps.

Fan will not start on it's own


The fan only has one capacitor. The other two are for the compressor, one is a start capacitor and the other a run capacitor. A schematic should be on your fan motor telling you witch two wires run to the start capacitor for the fan motor.

RV A/C fan won't start on its own


This could be the problem. It is more likely that the motor bearing is bad. Take the fan capacitor and have it tested. Or replace it, (under $20). Was the fan motor loud before this happened? Hopefully it is just the capacitor, the motor runs $60 - $100 and is a FUN to replace.
