Goodman central air unit fan not working

I have a Goodman central air unit and I noticed yesterday that the house was getting hot. I went outside and the fan was not turning at all. I got on here and someone said to try to see if you could get the fan to turn with assistance. I tried that, and the fan took right off. The question that I saw said that this was caused by a capacitor. Is this correct?

There are a variety of factors that may cause your A/C to not cool your house. When the AC is clogged with accumulated dust, lint and other debris, don't be surprised that it could cause your A/C to blow hot air; then again, it could also be a bad capacitor, as you have alluded; in fact, in all likelihood, it is the capacitor if the fan is not working on the outside A/C unit.. With that said, here is a diagnostic article that provides these and other most probable causes of your A/C's failure to cool your house, and from there you can read it and then, step by step, rule out each possible cause listed in the article:

http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Home_Improvement_Zone_Cooling_Ventilation_Systems_Central_Air_Conditioning.htm

Read the article, and, if I were you, I'd take advantage of the link for free four (4) quotes and "pick the brain"--seek the advice--of these technicians who offer you a free quote to discern what could be the problem; there's no obligation to get the quote since it is free--get three estimates if you can. Plus, if it is the capacitor, such a replacement is very costly--you might get a better deal from the technician since the technician usually has access to wholesale pricing when he buys his materials--but that's just my thought. Good luck!

Outside unit will only run for a short amount of time with A/C before the fan stops turning and starts humming, squealing/screeching and the top of the outside unit gets hot.


The bearings are bad in the motor and after the fan runs enough it eventually gets hot, making the bearing screech and the fan locks up. Need to replace motor again. See if it has a warranty. The reason it gets hot is because the fan is what removes the heat from the coil and if the fan isn't running there is nothing to cool it off so to speak.

AC Fan outside running slow


The brown wire goes to the capacitor. It probably shorted out with the nicked wire. Replace the capacitor.

Clicking sound is the contactor engaging to start the outside unit. Check for a burnt off wire at the contactor. For some reason you are not getting power to the outside unit. If you find a burnt off wire shut off all power to it then remake the connection at the point of the circuit break.
