Question about Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner
I have a Carrier Furnance (Model 58GP-125-GA) the Fan / Blower doesn't always start. Open the access panel and spin the fan then I can get it going. But it will start but doesn't start by itself.
Any ideas? The fan motor is brand new and spins freely.
Any help would be appreciated.
With power off, locate fan motor capacitor (generally silver in colour).
Rating on capacitor will be in microfarads at specified voltage ( 5mf @
370 volts). Be careful to discharge before handling and return defective
cap. to source of replacement. They can confirm whether or not truely
defective. Replace and secure. Restore power and check operation.
Purpose of run capacitor is to provide starting torque that you are
presently providing by hand spinning. Hope this helps.

Sounds like a bad capacitor usually screwed to the blower housing (round or oval shiny can)
this gives the motor a kick start)
depending on the motor there is usally two brown wires that go to it
check the mfd rating on it probably 5mfd and replace it with a matching one
its a very inexpensive part
